DesertPLUS Addon

The Deserts in Minecraft have always needed a major update, the DesertPLUS addon changes all that by adding new structures, mobs, items, and blocks to make the deserts feel more alive.

Desert Landscape

The desert landscape can be a boring place but now has some things to spice it up a bit. Now as you explore you can find rocks and palm trees around the terrain.

Palm Trees

There are two types of palm trees, Tall & Short. These give you a new wood type called "Palm Wood"!


There are several rock sizes that you can now find scattered around, they can be made up of different stone types as well!


Desert Structures

There are several new structures you can now find scattered around the deserts and dungeons underground!


There are 5 NEW desert dungeons to take on as you explore the new desert landscape with treasures to loot!

House Ruins

Houses of past explorers and treasure hunters who couldn't withstand the deserts grasp, wonder what they left behind?

Spire Ruins

Who built these spires and what could lie under them?


A safe haven for travelers but the bigger ones contain something under it!
