The Twilight Forest is a mod created by Benimatic that adds a new dimension, the Twilight Forest. This dimension is a heavily forested world filled with new mobs, trees, dungeons, and bosses. This dimension's ground level is very low, in response to the very tall trees. The dimension is locked at sunset time, making sleeping impossible. Mobs will not spawn on the surface of the Twilight Forest, but they will in dungeons and caves.
Entering the Twilight
Entering the Twilight Forest is achieved through the creation of a Twilight Forest Portal. A 2x2 pool of water only 1 block deep forms the basis for this portal; additionally it must be surrounded by "natural" vegetation including flowers, grass, saplings, and mushrooms. Once the pool is surrounded in this manner, the portal is completed by dropping a diamond (pressing Q by default) into the water. The water will turn purple (similar to a Nether Portal) and a bolt of lightning will strike the portal, inflicting minor damage to nearby players. Players may travel to the Twilight Forest by walking or jumping into the newly created portal. Once the portal is activated, it is possible to remove the flowers around it while keeping the portal intact.
The majority of the Twilight Forest is a peaceful biome. Despite the perpetually dim conditions, hostile mobs will not spawn on the surface in the Twilight Forest itself. Instead, progression through the mod is centered around landmarks that serve to advance the level of difficulty encountered through increasingly challenging enemies and bosses. Chest items and drops become correspondingly more rewarding with each new area. It should be noted that Twilight Forest Portals will not discriminate as to the area in which they appear; a newly created portal may bring the player to the interior of a Hollow Hill or even one of the various Twilight Forest boss lairs. As such, some degree of caution and preparation should be exercised when first passing through a Twilight Forest Portal.
