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!

    Awesome Addon ForgeLogical Really Cool!!!. One Thing Is The Desert Furrow Affects All Mobs I Dunno If That Is Intentional But All in all it is awesome. i just did an addon review on it 😀

  5. Metal sulvio says:

    hello good i wanted you to add some things:put a system of thirst and new ores and vultures (when you have little life they attack you) for now it’s just that idea I have but I still liked the addon;)

  6. THE_BLUE says:

  10. ERODExGOW says:

    I would give it a 5 star if it wasn’t for the the bug idk if it’s my phone or game only but whenever I’m playing and using this add-on, even playing with a friend, it out of nowhere makes my whole app crash. Anyways everything else is dope just hope in the next update u can fix the bug in which after playing a few mins in a world using the add-on then it suddenly just crashes the app.

    • Xenophire says:

      Yes I can attest to this. Once I added this mod to my world, I experienced crashing when playing with my friend. Well it would freeze me as well, while my friend could still move. The crashing issue only happened twice(I think, maybe 3) with us in the several hours we played, but yes I noticed it.

  15. aardwoof says:

    love this addon!! here’s a thought: what if we could tame non-golden scarabs? they’re super cute!!

  16. joe847802 says:

    looks cool. is it compatible with other addons? Also, will it crash on realms? I know the simple structures addon works on realms, but it crashes when theres more than 1 person on realms. Was told its a bug at the moment, so im wondering, does this structure addon also have that same bug?

  17. Xenophire says:

    Love it! Fun to explore!

    • Xenophire says:

      Noticed a bug, at lest on my iphone SE 2. If I got into the help menu for the mod, I have no ability to go back or to exit. The X that’s supposed to be there is cut off screen, so I was forced to completely close the Minecraft app.

      • Xenophire says:

        ui/how_to_play_screen.json: Child controls must have unique names:


        In the future this will be an error and this file won’t load.

  18. Atlas Boyyo says:

    You should create another mod upgrading oceans! (More sunken structures, sharks, whales, jellyfish, octopus, deep ocean biomes, underwater villagers, more treasure)

  19. rodrigofire14 says:

  20. Beam006 says:
