About Silent Lib

1.12 updates are in the works! Newer builds may not be compatible with older version at first, but the plan is to allow compatibility between 1.10.2, 1.11.2, and 1.12. Please note that 1.12 made significant changes to the crafting system and updating some mods (most notably Silent's Gems) may take some time.


Contains shared classes used by several of my mods, to make them easier to update and maintain. This is for Minecraft 1.9 and up only.

Again, that's Minecraft 1.9+ only! There is no reason for this mod to be backported to 1.7/1.8. Before that, I was just copying shared classes between mods. Silent's Gems and my other mods for Minecraft 1.7/1.8 run just fine without any other mods installed.



Cross Compatibility

As of version 2.0, Silent Lib allows mods designed in 1.11/1.11.2 to run on 1.10.2. In theory, the opposite is also true, but has not been tested. This only works for Silent Lib mods, unfortunately.

Download the version of Silent Lib marked with your Minecraft version (either 1.10.2 or 1.11.x), then download the other mods marked "universal" or "1.11.x". Yes, I realize this is a bit confusing. I wish there was a better way. But if you are using the Curse client, the correct files should be downloaded automatically.

This feature is heavily inspired by McJty's CompatLayer. I borrowed ideals/code from there and modified it to fit my needs. Credit where credit is due.

Guide Books

Version 2.1 introduced a guide book system. Any mod is welcome to utilize it. The design is heavily inspired by the booklet from Actually Additions.


List of Silent Lib Mods 

Currently this mod is used by:

This mod is NOT required for (basically anything small that does not add blocks/items):


If you are crashing or one mod says it can't find Silent Lib, first make sure you have updated both Silent Lib and all mods that use it. Note the latest builds of mods using Silent Lib are compatible with both 1.10.2 and 1.11.x, but their are named with "universal" or "1.11.x".

Common Issues

  • A mod is looking for "SilentLib" (with capital letters) and can't find it: You are using a badly outdated version of the other mod.
  • A mod is looking for "silentlib" (all lowercase letters) and can't find it: You are using a badly outdated version of Silent Lib.

If updating does not resolve the issue, make a new issue on the issue tracker of the mod you believe is responsible based on the crash report. To get to the issue tracker, go to the page of the mod on CurseForge and click the "Issues" link at the top.
