Botania Mod

Botania Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2 is a tech mod in essence. The theme is natural magic. By the very base of the mod, as the title would give you the idea is flora. Of course, it is not limited to that. Most of the info on Botania Mod can be found inside the game, in the Lexica Botania, the mod’s “documentation book”. You can craft it pretty easily with a book and any type of sapling.



  • Beautifully Presented
    Decorate your worlds with colors. Botania generates a total of sixteen new flowers, all of these are used both for decoration and crafting. As a bonus, they have shiny particles and can be used for dyeing.
  • Uniquely Powered
    With an original, aim and time based power system, Botania has a much different feel than your typical magic or tech mod. Controlling Mana and seeing it flow in real time can bring a new light to your base.
  • Immersive & Automatable
    Botania takes the work to the world, with a no GUIs for interaction philosophy and careful design to make sure almost everything is perfectly automatable within itself. Given some thought, of course.
  • Thoroughly Documented
    The Lexica Botania is the compedium of knowledge of this mod, easilly craftable in-game via a book and a sapling, it gives you all the information you’d ever need to know about Botania.
  • Packed with Content
    With hundreds of different items and blocks and infinite manners of putting them together, Botania is packed with a ton of content. Much more content is hidden under the item list with the challenges it presents.

Botania follows some design rules…

  • No pipes, wires or equivalent, they are boring and overdone;
  • Abstain from using GUIs in favour of in-world interaction;
  • Refrain from showing numbers to the player to minimize the incentive to minmax;
  • Provide pleasing visuals utilizing only two different particle effects;
  • Utilize or provide renewable resources where possible.

With a few goals in mind…

  • Break the norm of mods being means to an end, by being engaging in play, not only reward;
  • Deliver fun and balanced gameplay, without the use of grinding;
  • Incentivize sandbox gameplay and the creation of fun contraptions;
  • Provide an immersive experience overall.

To get started in Botania, one needs to find magical flowers around the world, they spawn in one of 16 colors. These flowers can be made into petals, which are the main crafting material in the mod.

An ingame documentation book exists, in the form of the Lexica Botania. It tells you how the mod works. You can make it  by combining a book with any sapling.

Botania features a power system called Mana, which is a somewhat original power system, compared to most others out there. It’s a power system that requires aiming and time coordination, as the power does not go where you want automatically or instantaneously.
