BetterEnd Minecraft Mod
By Dalton Whalen
As you adventure through a Minecraft server, many players will eventually find their way into The End. Whether it’s to fight the dragon or to obtain loot, the land is barren with little excitement. Aside from the occasional End City or chorus plant, there isn’t much to do within The End either, which can be disappointing for a lot of people. Luckily, this dilemma is no longer an issue thanks to BetterEnd, which completely redefines The End dimension. Tons of new biomes, mobs, and more wait for your arrival. No longer will you be subjected to empty wastelands while searching for elytras. Installing mods is simplified with our Apex Hosting panel, so we have created this guide to help you get started.
BetterEnd is owned by Quiqueck on Curseforge, with xXfirelXx as a contributor, paulevs as the former author, and Bulldoq83 as the maintainer. The mod has over 7.6 million downloads between versions 1.16.3 up to 1.19.2 at the time of writing. BetterEnd completely redesigns the End dimension with new biomes, mobs, and more.

To get started, you must reach the end as usual. Just find your portal, then jump through to challenge the Ender Dragon. Immediately, you may notice some differences, as the obsidian pillars now have much more detail. Before you can proceed to the rest of the dimension, take out the crystals and slay the Ender Dragon to unlock the end gateway.
As soon as you’re through the end gateway, you should realize that this is not the End you’re used to. Massive new biomes and structures are scattered throughout the dimension. Vibrant spires, dark forests, and more wait around every corner. Alongside these changes are new mobs, tools, armor, and more.
There are many new biomes added throughout the BetterEnd mod. Some are bland and barren while others are vibrant and beautiful.
This lush biome is filled with islands and floating spires covered in bright foliage. With the colorful hanging plants and petals gently falling to the ground.
These hill islands are quite the sight, with glowing crystals as far as the eye can see. While the rest of this biome is barren, the crystals more than make up for it.
The Foggy Mushroom biome is covered in moss and giant blue glowing mushrooms. Here you can find various mobs, including lakes full of aquatic life or slimes. Other mobs include dragonflies or jellyfish-like creatures called Cubozoa.
As dark and foreboding as the name suggests, the Shadow Forest has limited visibility with danger lurking around every corner. Beware of thorny plants and shadow walkers that may be following you, waiting to attack.
This dense jungle is filled with moss and giant mushrooms. Hanging vines, ferns, jellyshrooms and more can be found growing on the various fungal trees. The air is even filled with harmless jellyshroom spores.
The Dragon Graveyard biome is a red biome complimented by the bright blue mushrooms scattered about. Covered in broken mossy obsidian pillars and bright plants, it is a very lively place to explore.
In addition to these new biomes, there are new mobs added to the roster. Some of these are passive, while others are entirely hostile.
These mobs are glowing jellyfish-like mobs that can be found within bodies of water. They can be captured alive with a bucket, but watch out for their poisonous touch.
The Dragonfly is a glowing mob that can be found fluttering around lake biomes. They are completely passive and do not have any drops if they are killed.
These glowing fish can be found in a variety of colors in lakes and geysers. The colors will change depending on their biome and can be captured alive in a bucket.
The end slimes are similar to their overworld counterparts and function the same. They come in 4 different plant styles depending on which biome they spawned in.
This humanoid mob is native to the Shadow Forest biome, constantly stalking you from the dark. If an adventurer touches one, they will suffer from temporary blindness.
The Silk Moth resides in Blossoming Spire biomes and can be found fluttering among the tenanea trees. They like to fill their nest with silk and drop silk fiber when killed.
The game crashes when starting up:
If this occurs, it is often due to a missing dependency or mismatched version. First, make sure that you have downloaded and installed FabricAPI and BCLib in the mods folder. If this is correct, ensure that you have the matching versions of each mod and Fabric, otherwise they cannot run. Once this has been solved on either the game or the server, restart and try to start it once again.
I get an error when joining the server:
If you receive an error when trying to connect, it often means that the mod is running on the server, but may not be running on your own game. Ensure that all the mod files have been installed in your local mods folder and that you are launching your Fabric profile. You can also test if the mod is functioning by launching a singleplayer game and checking The End for changes. Once you have adjusted the issues, restart the game and try to connect once again.
