How do I install this?

Crafting Guide Plus is a simple and intuitive crafting guide and auto-crafting mod for Minetest. CGP is compatible with Minetest Game and any other games that use sfinv. It was built mostly from the ground up, with some inspiration from jp's mod as well as Unified Inventory.


  • "Intelligent" auto-crafting, or rather, automatic craft staging. This feature can be disabled if it is not wanted.
  • Group support, including group search and support for craft recipes requiring items in multiple groups.
  • Shaped and shapeless crafting recipe previews of any size.
  • Fuel and cooking recipes, including fuel replacements and burning/cooking times.
  • Digging and digging by chance (item drop) previews.

Known issues:

  • The auto-crafting algorithm is not perfect. For craft recipes requiring items in a group, only the item with the greatest count from the player's inventory will be utilized.
  • Items in multiple groups will not always display correctly in craft view.



Do you recommend this mod?

  • Very useful

    This gives you a crafting guide and the ability to initiate one or more crafts after finding the recipe you want to use. If you're a survival player looking for an alternative to Unified Inventory this is a pretty good choice

  • If you don't like the crafting grid, this mod is for you

    This mod covers the lack of a craft guide for games that doesn't provide one, but it's a bit more than that. If you don't like picking all the materials one by one and remembering each goes where, click on the craft button from the guide and all the materials are already placed. Either for just one or the maximum amount you can craft. An apreciable feature to smooth the crafting process of complex items.
