In the vast world of Minecraft, there are tons of blocks and items to use and explore. While there are additions across each main update, many players turn to mods to satiate their desire for more experiences. There are many mods that achieve this, but most try to redefine the gameplay entirely rather than built upon the vanilla foundation. This isn’t the case with Supplementaries, a Minecraft mod that includes many new items and tweaks that resonate with the existing vanilla counterparts. New weapons, tools, and foods are but a small portion of what you can find. Installing mods is easy with our Apex Hosting panel, so we have created this guide to help you get started.


Supplementaries is owned by MehVahdJukaar on CurseForge with CapitanOtto credited as the documenter. With over 19 million downloads from 1.15 to modern versions, it is very popular with players. The mod aims to add many vanilla-like features and tweaks to complement existing content.
