The GUI, showing blocks and items available to the player

Not Enough Items (NEI) s a useful mod added to Hexxit that lists all the items in the game and their recipes, and provides the ability to spawn those items in if you wish. It also has many features such as changing gamemode and time of day.


Recipe Mode - Clicking on an item in the NEI interface will display a crafting recipe of that item (if craftable).

Utility Mode - Same as Recipe Mode. Adds Delete and Magnet modes.

Cheat Mode - Clicking on Items in the NEI interface will copy them to your inventory. The number below the list sets the quantity given; "0" gives the player a full stack. Shift-clicking an item will give the player an infinite amount of that item. Cheat Mode also adds 7 backup saves and all of the following features:

Delete Mode - Clicking on an item/stack will delete that item/stack from your inventory. Shift-clicking an item will clear your inventory of that item.

Creative Mode - Sets the player to creative and survival mode. Creative+ gives the player extra inventory slots and moves the armor to the side of the inventory.

Toggle Rain - Changes rain from on to off. In snowy biomes this produces or gets rid of snow.

Magnet Mode - When on, all items in a 16 block radius will be pulled towards the player. (Like Meteorite armor or the Coin of Fortune)

Set Time - There are options to set the time to dawn, noon, dusk, and midnight.

Heal Player - Sets the player at full health and hunger when clicked.

Search Mode - (available in all modes) By double clicking the search bar you are able to search for an item. For example, if you searched "iron", all iron tools and anything containing the word "iron" would be singled out and anything in your inventory matching that criteria would be highlighted.

Key FunctionsEdit

Search Bar - Allows for the searching of any item or block in the game. Typing in the keyword of a block or item (i.e. "iron") will narrow down the list to items containing that word ("iron ingot", "iron sword", etc.). Double-clicking the search bar highlights possible items in the inventory matching the search criteria.

"R" Key - Gives the recipe for the selected block or item (if there is any)

Note: Default Keyboard Control layout uses the "R" Key to Sort Inventory.  Using the "R" Key or Selecting an item in Recipe mode will sort your inventory.

"U" Key - Shows the recipes that the selected block or item is used in (if there is any).

"O" Key - Enables and disables the NEI interface.


  • Certain methods of 'crafting' items (i.e. through the Tinkers' Construct tool station) are not recognized by and will not be listed in NEI.
  • Certain items, such as the Lumber Axe from Tinker's Construct, will be bugged when cheated from NEI. These can crash the game.
