For those who love medieval houses or farms
If you want to build timber framed houses or farmes, this is a very good mod. Imitating the frames with full blocks is much more tricky and less satisfying. With this mod, you can build in a more realistic size.
Limited fly priv for builders
At first I wasn't aware what this mod does. Apart from adding cranes which may be a worthy decoration on their own in some places, it allows players to fly withhin the range of the tower crane. This makes building a lot easier without having to hand out fly privs to all players. Very useful mod!
Simple mod that adds a great building material
Allows to build houses and other things in decorative colors that make them look more realistic and impressive. Particulary great in combination with the windows and doors from homedecor.
Simple protection system with limits
This is very simple: Craft and place a block, and your area is protected. Most players can understand and use that easily. Drawbacks are that you may need a lot of these protection blocks - in places given by the mod and not by the demands of your building - and that there may be places on your server where nobody can protect the land due to overlapping protection. Use this if you run a server with inexperienced players and/or players who don't plan anything too complex.
More than just stairs - makes builders happy
Adds a lot of useful shapes (diffrent stairs, slabs, panels, ..) and some decorative blocks which carry building to a new level. Excellent and very useful mod. Allows to build thinner walls, statues etc. and can be an indigrent in quite a lot of intresting, creative structures.
Basic, decorative furniture
Adds decorative nodes that fit well together regarding their textures. An alternative if you can't afford full homedecor.
Must-have for builders - make your homes nicer!
This mod adds a lot of blocks that make your house and garden a lot nicer. It includes a complete bathroom set - no need to use a stair as a toilet anymore!, big fridges to keep your food (and ores :-)) cold, chairs, tables, sofas, TVs and a huge amount of other decorations, down to a wall calendar.
The doors alone are great already and make your house look much better than the boring standard wooden door. Fences and tables can be used in diffrent ways. Realistic shingles make your roofs stand out and shine. There's even a fish tank can be illuminated! And the garden benches make your parks and roads much more inviting.
The only drawbacks may be that some of the blocks are rather specialized and are not as universally usable as e.g. a wooden stair - and that there are a lot of blocks included.
I've seen many players who immensely enjoyed making their homes nice with this modpack. For me, personally, if a server doesn't have this mod installed then there's something important missing.
