In this article I will show you how to fix your “New Default” minecraft mod settings. The problem is caused by a part of the game called the “recipe book”. This is a book which tells you how to build/buy/heal/craft all of the things you need in-game. The problem is that it’s often not set up right, and as a result your game can have strange outcomes when using it.
The recipe book is used like a “base” for many parts of the game, as explained in the Vanilla Minecraft guide. When you first get started, you should remove any and all recipes from your inventories. Do so before anything else is done – the game won’t recognize anything if it hasn’t been built or crafted yet. To do this, go to the “storage” tab on the toolbar, and empty all of your inventories. You can then place these items in a bucket or chest to prevent them from cluttering your world when you go to edit them.
Now that you’ve had a chance to get use to your “new” inventories, start to replace the default ones with the ones from the “recipe book”. At this point you will probably find that your game still isn’t working the way you’d expect. The reason for this is… your game has no default recipe book! You are instead required to create them for yourself. Creating them, however, is actually quite simple, and can even be automated for you if you know what you’re doing.
Open up “edit” to the game menu, and click on “variables”. A drop down menu will appear, with two options: Use default or Custom. You’ll notice that the latter option changes the values you see in the screen. Click on the custom to take you to a new page, where you will be able to enter whatever values you wish to change.
Save your changes, and then restart the game. Your changes will be applied to your game immediately, allowing you to get right back to enjoying your vanilla (non-modded) game again. Just don’t forget to restart the game after changing anything else – it’s important not to forget to do that, as it can cause problems when starting the vanilla game if you don’t. It’s also worth a quick check to make sure your inventory items are all in the inventory lists.
That’s about all there is to it. It’s simple, effective and it should give you the best chance of getting through the game on your terms.
