The Betweenlands

The Betweenlands is a mod developed by the modding group for the indie sandbox construction game Minecraft. This large and expansive mod focuses on a whole new fully fleshed-out dimension for Minecraft that adds a plethora of exciting new content.

The Betweenlands dimension is a dark, swampy realm crawling with strange, monstrous creatures. It is the dimension that the majority of the mod revolves around.

Creating Issues

When reporting problems you must...

  • use a descriptive and concise title
  • include the version of Forge and the Betweenlands you are using
  • specify whether it happens in singleplayer or multiplayer (and if so, what server is used, e.g. Vanilla, Thermos, Sponge etc.)
  • provide a detailed and comprehensible description, if possible also include instructions on how to reproduce it
  • include a link to your mod pack so we can try to reproduce it, otherwise if no such link is available provide a list of all mods you have installed
  • upload the full crash log if available and include a link to said crash log
  • not post multiple problems in one issue. Create multiple issues instead

Feel free to include pictures of the problem you are having, if that helps. You may also create issues for suggestions. If you have multiple suggestions please post them in one single issue.

If you do not follow these rules your issues will be closed and ignored.

But before you start writing an issue, please read up on the following common issues

Common Issues

  1. Common issues caused by OptiFine

    1. My screen is totally black!
      This is a common issue when OptiFine is installed.
      The "Fast Render" option in OptiFine causes our shaders to not work.
      To fix this problem you can either set "Fast Render" to OFF
      or disable the Betweenlands shaders in the Betweenlands config.

    2. Everything is invisible!
      Newer versions of OptiFine have built-in shaders that
      don't work well with our shaders. You can either disable the
      Betweenlands shaders or disable the OptiFine shaders by going to the
      main Minecraft directory, opening optionsshaders.txt and changing
      shaderPack=... to shaderPack=OFF.

    3. The mod crashes on startup in 1.7.10
      The 1.7.10 version of the Betweenlands is incompatible with some
      OptiFine versions. Try OptiFine HD U D3 instead which should
      work.

  2. Other common issues

    1. The water is only yellow/brown/beige
      Download the latest recommended version of Forge.

    2. Everything is black, invisible or looks strange
      If you have any other mods installed that add shaders, make sure you either
      disable the shaders of those mods, or disable the Betweenlands shaders (see 1.1)

    3. The sounds or music sometimes stop working
      That's something we're still working on. If this happens to you, you
      can fix it by pressing F3+T (might freeze the game for a few seconds)
      instead of restarting the game.

    4. This mod makes my game lag horribly!!1!
      Try disabling the Betweenlands shaders (see 1.1). Some graphics cards,
      especially integrated ones such as Intel HD Graphics, cannot handle the
      shaders well.
