More Villagers Minecraft Mod
By Nathan Young
While exploring your Vanilla Minecraft world, a village may appear on the horizon and may provide you with lots of loot. The best kind to find is through trading with villagers, but may feel limited due to the number of available jobs. Other times, it can be too repetitive for some players after accepting similar trades for a long time. This may lead you or others to search for solutions, which can be found in modifications. One of these is called More Villagers, a Forge and Fabric mod that implements nine new professions with unique tradable items. Whether you craft their work station to manually get what you want or randomly find them in nearby villages, you’re given the opportunity to make the perfect deal. Setting this up to play with friends is easily done on our panel, but may confuse newcomers. Due to this, we’ll show you how to install and use the More Villagers mod on your Minecraft server in this Apex Hosting guide.

After joining your server, locating a village will be your first step towards finding new trades. This can be done by simply running around the world until you get lucky. Once you’ve found one, go through each house and room to hopefully stumble on a new workstation. Alternatively, you can craft them with basic resources to force villagers into your desired profession. We highly advise using their official wiki or installing the JEI mod to easily view all crafting recipes for this process. Instead of jumping head first into these unique jobs and trades, review the subsections below to learn more about them to get started. Additionally, there’s an optional configuration for this mod if you’re wanting to tweak its generation or item offers.
As previously mentioned, there are nine new jobs villages can have with this mod. These all offer unique items that no other profession does, such as sea loot or highly valuable minerals. Although, some trades offer basic resources in exchange for emeralds and may not be favored in your server. Due to this, a couple workstations might be sought after more than others since they provide better loot.
Regardless of this, there’s plenty of possibilities with the More Villagers mod. We’ll break down each type of profession and what they offer down below.
Starting off with an incredibly unique villager, the Netherologist comes from its Decayed Workbench that offers Nether items to players. Similar to other jobs, this one provides you with five levels of trades. Whether you’re getting the lowest or highest tier, all loot comes from its corresponding dimension. For example, players can get Basalt, Obsidian, or the Pigstep Music Disc.
This is a wonderful way to easily get resources from the Nether without entering its dangerous land. However, make sure to have plenty of emeralds or already-mined items from the dimension to successfully trade with the Netherologist.
If you have any mob farm, then having a Hunter villager is a must have in your world. This is due to its valuable trades that allows you to exchange Bones, Gunpowder, and more for emeralds. Additionally, players can work their way up to its high tier trades that offer Outpost Explorer Maps or Ghast Tears for potions. This is also a wonderful way to obtain Slimeballs if you’re working on a sticky piston machine on the server. All you’ll need to do is find or craft a Hunting Post to begin enjoying these trades.
Another great method for gathering emeralds or other items is trading with a Florist, brought to you by the Gardening Table. Whether you’re getting Glow Berries or Moss Blocks, there’s plenty of useful trades from this villager. There’s even custom maps that point you towards Jungle and Swamp biomes, only obtainable after reaching its higher levels.
This helps players that have too many junk-like items, such as Vines since they can be traded for emeralds. However, the Florist isn’t a sought after job due to other valuable professions.
Building any redstone machines can take lots of time and resources, which is bypassed with the Engineer villager from its Blueprint Table. These characters offer you a wide variety of blocks and tools, such as an Observer, Comparator, Hoppers, or Pistons. Keep in mind that a decent amount of emeralds are required to begin trading with this villager. If you find yourself low on these items, then consider trading Redstone for them. This mineral is commonly found in the world, so it’ll be a quick and efficient way to obtain emeralds.
Growing trees on your farm can be unfulfilling for many players, especially if you already have tons of wood planks. Fortunately, the Forester villager from the Forestry Bench allows you to trade Saplings for emeralds. This is an extremely useful way to collect emeralds for more offers, while also giving you enchanted diamond tools at its highest trading level.
As for all the other trades with this villager, they are mainly for exchanging emeralds for various types of Wood Logs. Besides the quick way to get rich from this job, it’s not entirely popular among players.
After defeating the ender dragon and exploring the End dimension, you may want to consider trading with an Enderologist from its Purpur Altar station. This villager allows you to exchange Endstone for emeralds, among other basic resources found in this void world. However, you can quickly get Firework Rockets, Shulker Shells, Dragon Heads, and End City Maps. These items are highly valuable, especially if you’re needing more storage or power for elytras.
Enderologist villagers are considered to be one of the best from this mod, as there is lots of valuable loot from their offers.
As you mine for resources deep within cave systems, try trading your leftover Deepslate blocks with Miners from the Mining Bench. This can easily give you tons of emeralds, which comes in handy for its higher level offers. For example, you can exchange them for an Enchanted Diamond Pickaxe, Mineshaft Explorer Maps, or simply trading raw minerals for other items.
Every server and world needs to have this villager due to its valuable trades. This provides you with many possibilities and chances for upgrading your gear.
Another popular trader to do business with is an Oceanographer from the Oceanography Table. This villager allows you to obtain unique materials, such as Sponges, Nautilus Shells, Heart of The Seas, or even Tridents. These trades can be a great way to build conduits or find loot from its Buried Treasure Maps offer. This isn’t the best character to get emeralds, as it requires Prismarine materials for them. However, it’ll still offer you and others a possibility for getting valuable items.
Almost every village will have these custom workstations, but not all of them since the generation is random. This only applies to new worlds or structures that have never been rendered in an existing map. With this in mind, make sure to explore your environment to stumble upon these unique jobs. However, remember that you and others can easily craft them instead. Although, villagers are still required to begin trading for their items. Keep this in mind when using the modification on your server and world.
If you’re wanting to customize the generation of these custom jobs, then tweaking the mod’s config file is required. This is done through the FTP panel for both Forge and Fabric users. However, players looking to alter or make new trades need to use CraftTweaker and follow this tutorial to do that. By default, there aren’t any options to do this process due to the mod’s design. Besides this, the steps below will help you make any changes to the normal configs.
- Navigate towards your
FTP File Accessarea, then login with your credentials.
- Afterward, enter the
configdirectory near the top of the list.
- Locate the morevillagers-common.toml file and press
Edit, revealing its editor.
Note: If you’re using Fabric, then do this for the morevillagers.json file.
- Make your desired changes and click
Saveat the top.
- Return to the main panel and
Restartthe server to apply the edits.
An extremely common issue to encounter is failing to join the server, which is likely caused by using an invalid
IP Address:Port or Subdomain for the connection. Make sure to use the correct values during this process, as one mistake can result in failure. This information can be verified in the main panel, near the top of your screen. Besides this, an incorrect launcher configuration can also reject the connection to the server. Double check More Villagers are transferred to the local mods directory with its corresponding
Fabric version properly installed too.
If you’ve tried crafting or using the new workstations and nothing happens, then this means the modification isn’t working. This is a common problem among the server, as uploading its JAR file in the incorrect directory happens a lot. Make sure to transfer this into the mods folder on your FTP panel, then
restart from the main panel to begin loading everything. However, generating a new world is heavily suggested if you’re wanting to naturally look for these new jobs. If you’re using Fabric, then double check you’ve installed any dependencies so it’ll work normally. Otherwise, consider making a new Server Profile so no pre-existing files conflict with More Villagers.
