Why use Custom Farm Loader?

Custom Farm Loader makes farm creation easy and is a great way to get into making your own custom farm.
It offers a lot of extensive functionality to bring life and joy into your abode.
The mods goal is to remove a lot of the bloat that comes from having to find custom farm creation related guides in a dozen different places and general purpose mods. Let's focus on what is important: Creating the farm of your dreams for people to enjoy.

  • Adheres to the 1.5.5+ custom farm type standard, making it compatible with many other farms
  • Spawns resources using either a preset or using your own custom rules
  • Organizes relevant map properties. Have them all in one spot and change them on the fly.
  • Spawns working TVs and Beds, no need for an additional mod to fix furniture
  • No need to tell users to turn off monster spawns, CFL has them off by default and allows you to toggle it on 
  • Easily add vanilla icons and world map overlays using simple keywords
  • Have all your configs in one easily configurable config minus all the bloat
  • Improve your users UI experience with a new and improved gamepad friendly farm selection GUI
  • Change fishing and crab pot catches dynamically using a vast set of conditions and toggle fish bubbles
  • Invest into an upcoming Framework and benefit from its growth by making feature requests and bug reports
