Dark Utilities Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is a utility mod which adds new blocks and items which can be useful in every day modded play. Dark Utilities Mod was made with other mods in mind, and has many addons. The list of addons include Just Enough Items, Waila, Thaumcraft, Baubles and Chisel.

Dark Utilities Mod

It can be very difficult to maintain documentation for mods like Dark Utilities. Because of this, the mod aims to document itself in game. It is extremely recommended that you also download Just Enough Items which will give you accurate recipes and descriptions of every Item and Block. Some brief documentation and spotlights of some cool features can be found below.

Block Spotlight

  • Vector Plate – A basic conveyor belt which works as one might expect. When you place it down, it will have an arrow which points in the direction you are looking. When a mob steps on the plate it will be pushed in that direction. If a mob is sneaking, they will not be pushed.
  • Sneaky Blocks – These blocks are based on existing blocks in minecraft. The key diference is that they can be changed to look like any other block. For example, a sneaky lever will act like a lever, but you can disguise it as another block.
  • Ender Hopper – This is an upgrade to a normal hopper. When placed on an item container such as a chest, the hopper will teleport nearby items into the chest. This is very similar to the Vacuum Hoppers of old, but is much more server efficient, as it does not move items around.

Item Spotlight

  • Null Charm – Right clicking with the charm will open up a filter GUI. When you pick up any items, if they are in the filter list they will be destroyed instead of picked up. This is very useful for mining, as you can just get destroy all that extra cobble.
  • Enchanted Ring – These rings can be found in nether chests as a rare loot item. When in the offhand slot, or a baubles ring slot, they will increase the player’s level for the enchantment listed on the tooltip. For example, if you have a fire aspect ring, and a weapon with fire aspect 2, that weapon will act like it has fire aspect 3.
  • Focus Sash – This item prevents 1 hit KOs. If you have full health, and are hit with an attack that would kill you, you will survive with half a heart remaining. This allows the player to survive very high drops, or give a second chance when fighting powerful mobs.

Thaumcraft Addon

  • A new research page, which can be unlocked by scanning any Item or Block from the Dark Utilities mod.
  • All Items and Blocks in this mod are associated with aspects. They can be scanned, or broken down into essentia.
  • Crucible recipes for the mysterious potions can be learned. This is the only way to currently craft them.
  • Infusion Recipes for the Enchantment Rings. They are typically only found in dungeons.
  • The Sword of the Mortifer is a new item only available when Thaumcraft is installed. This sword has a chance to deal all of its damage as dissolve damage, which can turn mobs into essentia crystals if it kills the target.

Baubles Addon 

  • Enchanted Rings can be worn in the baubles slot. If you right click with the ring in hand, it will also equip into a baubles slot, similarly to how you can right click armor to equip that.

Just Enough Items

  • Crafting recipes for all blocks and items can bee seen in the recipe GUI.
  • Descriptions have been provided for every single Item and Block in the mod.


  • Special model fixes for some blocks in the mod.
  • Sneaky Blocks will show their camo block in the HUD instead.
  • The Timer block shows the remaining time in seconds before the next pulse goes off.


  • A special addon for Chisel exists, however it currently does not add any content, or change anything for now.
