Guide-API Village Mod and Pillage Mod (1.19.2, 1.18.18) is a fork from the original mod guide-api by TehNut & Tombenpotter. It uses a different package (guideapi-vp) and a different mod ID.

  • This allows you to easily create a guidebook for your mod.
  • Guide-API is responsible for most books maintenance (it registers them and puts them in its own creative tab).


The guide book is created mostly in code whereas e.g. Patchouli is mostly JSON based. This means:

  • Add or change content based on the configuration of your mod.
  • Wrap lines and pages based automatically, so localized strings don’t overflow.
  • Refer to the set keybindings.
  • Refer to internal constants, balancing values, etc so they are automatically changed in the book if you change them in the mod.
  • Add custom page types, recipe types, etc.
  • Use helper methods to generate parts of the book automatically.

Mods using this:


Example Home Screen: You can have different categories. The background image or color can be adjusted easily.

Example Crafting Recipes: Easily add crafting recipes by just specifying their recipe id.

Example Image Page: You can combine images with text. Text can be localized if desired.

Example Item and Block Pages: Add pages to describe individual items or blocks. Also, you can choose to automatically generate as many pages as necessary to display localized strings. Strings are automatically wrapped and can be manually formatted using TextFormatting.

Example Vampirism I: Item overview.

Example Vampirism II: Easily add custom recipe types or customize the book. Vampirism e.g. introduces page links.
