HIDWOODS is an addon that completely turns the Overworld in Minecraft into a whole new dimension, including custom biomes, mobs, blocks, items, and other features.

This addon is made by tomaxed44.

Hidwoods is an addon for Minecraft bedrock made by tomaxed44. This addon completely turns the overworld into a whole new dimension, including custom biomes, mobs, blocks, items, and other features.
In this new environment mostly made of dark green and purple colors, you will spawn near a landing pod and will find various different hostile and peaceful creatures. The world is made of two major biomes who are the plains and the forest. Small lakes are very common but are careful! they are full of aquatic creatures! 
The addon doesn’t have any content updates planned, however when the Bedrock engine will be even more complete, I may create a v2 with many more well designed and useful features and gameplay.
Also note that this project was started as a test addon where I learned how to make entities behaviors, models, animations, etc, this means some of the features don’t have a real utility.


  • A completely new overworld
  • A custom generation
  • Different earth creatures and aquatic creatures
  • New blocks
  • New items

Custom Generation

the world generation is composed of 3 new biomes, The Hidwoods forest, the Hidwoods plains, and the Hidwoods hills. You will spawn 90% of the time in one of those.
-The Hidwoods forest is composed of normal and giant taiga trees, small jungle trees, rocks and sometimes bamboo. The ground is made of Hidgrass, Dead hidgrass and hidwoods dirt.
-The hidwoods plains have a lighter biome color than the forest. The ground is very similar to the forest: Hidgrass, Dead hidgrass and hidwoods dirt. Rocks are very common
-The lakes are usually small and always have a hidwoods biome attached to them. The lakes are very common and not deep, you will find corals and mud at the bottom, and lilypads at the surface
-Swamp trees and occasionally giant mushrooms can be found on the edges of the lakes
-The hidwoods hills are the same as the vanilla Minecraft hills however, big trees can be found on them
-Warm and cold vanilla biomes are still available but don’t have anything special.


The majority of the entities are earth creatures that can be found on the surface at day or night. 
Vanilla entities such as zombies, cows, etc don’t naturally spawn, although they can be found on villages or mob spawners.

Diamond shard ore

  • Drop multiple diamond shards
  • Diamond shards can be combined to craft a single diamond (9 diamond shard = 1 diamond)


Hidgrass, Dead Hidgrass, and Hidwoods dirt are simply grass, coarse dirt, and dirt with a custom name.
However, the blocks do exist in the game but are not used because bedrock blocks feature are not fully complete yet


Most of the items are food or have no utilities
Almost all the raw foods have a chance of giving you poison or hunger for a few secs

Custom Trees (creative only)

The addon adds a bunch of custom trees that do not naturally spawn (sadly) but are available via spawn eggs
  • Place a tree spawn egg on the ground to create a custom tree
  • Be careful, most of them are huge
  • the spawned tree does not keep the previous blocks so be careful of where you place them!


The addon has 3 functions used to test the content
/function god
gives you infinite regeneration and saturation
/function spreadplayers
execute the spreadplayers command, spread everyone in a range of 10000 blocks
/function test
says test in the actionbar!

Tools used, credit:

  • I used Blockbench (by Jannisx11) for the models
  • I made the textures with Gimp 2
  • The whole behavior and resource pack has been made by myself


This addon is made for 1.13.

    Can u make it for 1.13.2??

  2. George pithyou says:

    While this may possibly be the best bedrock mod, I don’t like how it disables the spawning of vanilla mobs. Could you instead make hildawoods a separate dimension like the nether with it’s own portal?

  3. HanprogYt says:

    Best addon so far! Made a video about this:

  4. MillepedeDude says:

    Hey dude, this addon is really awesome, but all the aquatic animals are like they’re supposed to be land animals, they drowns, so it would be awesome if you would fix that
    And the original mobs, cows and sheep, doesn’t spawn anymore, I can’t make a bed if I play it on survival, so could you add them back?

  5. Someone says:

    Reminds me of the aether/betweenlands. I hope you work on this more. I might show this to the more advanced java people to show that we are making progress. Oh and can you make a alternate version of this where the vanilla stuff still spawns along with the addons stuff? I would like that.

  8. ToastMaster911 says:

    You should add a boss mob like a Midolin boss that has a soul mini-boss fly out of it upon defeating and/or a giant Acrilon boss that drops special items

  9. Blake says:

    Normal Mobs like sheep or cows do not spawn, could you add a mob similar to them in the game or just add them back? Everything else is great, I hope you consider overhauling the end or adding mini bosses. Truly does have the most potential.

  10. Creepakilla24O1 says:

    I noticed midolins spawning in the nether. Is this intended? I just thought I would mention it.

    love the mod it’s #1 on this site by far, very well done indeed.

    I like the addon but since you can’t find sheep unless you find a village it is hard to make a bed so you should be able to sheer the taurec to get taurec wool to make a bed

    Also, my English is really bad. Please ignore it 🙂

  35. UcopGamer says:

    I really loves this one! I like the texture, new mobs and the new biomes. Pretty hard to survive because of the Acrilon everywhere but still loves it!

  36. HirwrC says:

    This add-on is the best one I’ve ever played since add-ons came out. It has everything! New mobs, biomes, ores and blocks, simply everything what an adventurer like me needs for life. But there are some things that can be made better. For example we are missing crucial drop for game progress: the ender pearl. There momentally isn’t any way how to get it. My idea is, that midolins will drop an ender pearl shard rarely. From nine of these we can craft the ender pearl. Another items that are very hard to obtain are feathers and strings. Feather, as I know, is only dropped by chickens and there is no such a thing that would drop it. Strings are obtainable only in mineshafts and zombie villages, which are really rare, and sometimes in dungeons and temples, which are even rarer. We need some new mob to drop these or some way how to craft it. Speaking of crafting, some useless items, like the shell, can be used to craft something. The earlier mentioned shells can be crafted into bonemeal. They contain calcium, the same one which is inside of bones, so it makes perfect sense in my oppinion. The acrilon leg can be used for some boss item which is, in my oppinion, missing too. The boss can be a sort of giant bug or something in that sense. Maybe it can drop the important items that I mentioned earlier. Another thing that annoys me is high spawn rate of Plocytre hives. If I find something else that can be made better, I’ll write another review. Till then, good bye.
    PS: Keep it up man, you’re doing a great job here 🙂

    • tomaxed44 says:

      Thanks for the feedback!
      I have other plans for the midolin but I’ll surely add a way to get enderpearls more easily. For the feathers and string, I have a mob idea in my mind who would be perfect for that kind of drops. For the shell, the bone meal idea is super cool, this is a craft I’ll definitely add to the addon.
      I already found a craft that uses the acrilon legs, and I know a boss could be an important feature, I need to think about the perfect way to add one. For the hive I disagree, the fact that many bugs spawns forces the player to find a way how-to exploit this entity, for example using minecarts to move the hive in a safe area, or else. It add a bit of gameplay to the addon.
      Thanks for the ideas anyways, I noted some of these!

  42. Borgy says:

    the atmosphere of the addon feels so gloomy, and the difficulty change has forced me to change the way i had to play, mostly due to the fact that there are barely any exp drops and no wool. overall, its a great addon that you can play when you’re bored with vanilla minecraft

  46. Modded Survival Lover says:

    THIS MOD IS SO GOOD! It’s magnificent, this mod is the most java like mod on bedrock there is! ASAP gonna download this!

  47. Maverick says:

    Just the addon alone is good, but with the direct link…Your too good to be alive man!

  48. This is just downright AMAZING!
    I have a few suggestions.
    Also, you can make the new trees generate with the new generation feature or by making the entity that spawns the tree spawn in certain biomes.
    I have a suggestion to make the seas a bit more dangerous: The Leviathan. It’s like a huge snake thing with four legs (see monster hunter’s lagiacrus for inspiration) that swims in the ocean, but is also capable of going on land. In the water it attacks with electrical currents and chomps at you and is very fast.
    It can destroy boats.
    On land, it can shoot balls of electricity and does tailswipes and stuff.
    Maybe the babies are tameable?

    Giant turtle:
    It’s basicly a giant majestic sea turtle that flies through the sky. And when I say giant, I mean GIANT.
    They are rare, so seeing one flying above the landscape, causing a huge shadow would be very impressive to see. They’re not that fast, but that makes their movements more majestic.

    Suggestion: A mascot for your mod. Or well, add-on.
    This add-on is starting to look like a huge Java dimension mod.
    Huge Java dimension mods most of the time have a mascot mob (Aether’s Moa, NetherEx’s salamander).
    I propose this:
    A raptor-like creature that you can tame and ride, that lives in packs, with head feathers.

    Overhaul the end and the nether: New biomes, generation, mobs, tames, rideable mobs, plants, structures, a harder ender dragon, and more!

    This all is a bit to ask but it would add alot to your work.

    • Creator13Gaming says:

      This addon looks sick and I really like your ideas. The leviathan and giant turtle sound awesome but I don’t recall seeing mobs nearly that complex in any other addons before. Then again, this addon already seems to be breaking previously thought boundaries so we can hope 🙂

  49. And even a direct download link?!
    You’re going places, kid!

    • Orlando019 hj says:

      This made me cringe a lot not only for the “You’re going places, kid” which you didn’t need to put the coma but for being a person who can’t use their brain to pass adfly or those kinds of stuff. Sure this is a good Addon but please don’t be that person who rates 1 star to people who don’t give direct download link

  65. Brexit says:

    I love this addon, it’s honestly amazing even if it is simple, but could you possibly say why you can’t use the trees, is it because they’re entities and if they spawned naturally they would spawn in places like houses?

    Ok, wow… just wow. I was expecting this to be just some overcooked, infest of bugs, broken mod. But you totally exceeded my expectations by 10 fold. By far one of the best, most unique and ambitious mods I have seen to date. It’s fun and it just invokes that same energy of playing Minecraft for the first time. And especially it being on a platform that is not java whilst being this playable, is just one big mind-blower.

    No major bugs to fix, everything is unique and creative, and I can play this for multiple hours like I did when I first launched the game so many years ago. Splendid job and I hope to see more from you soon.
