Hexxit Wiki

The Twilight Forest is an endlessly generating dimension covered almost entirely in dense forest. It has more of an enchanted, fairy tale, and mythological theme than Minecraft's Overworld.

The sky, perpetually deep blue and filled with stars, lends a somewhat mystical cast to the world below. Tall trees create a canopy that covers most of the world, dotted with small clearings and massive trees that rise to the ceiling of the world. The terrain, with the exception of the Highlands biome, is flatter and lower than the Overworld with a water level at 32 instead of the 62 found in the Overworld. Various dungeons, bosses, structures, trees, and rare items fill this unique realm.

Note that the Treecapitator mod will work on all Twilight Forest trees.

Some content on this page includes content that is only featured in newer updates of the Twilight Forest, and is not included in the version included in Hexxit.


The Twilight Forest can only be accessed by creating a special portal in the Overworld.

Make the portal by digging a 2x2 hole, fill it with water, and surround the pool with natural items from Vanilla or Hexxit's mods such as flowers, plants, or mushrooms. Throw a Diamond into the pool and lightning will strike the water, magically transforming it into a portal to the Twilight Forest. A portal back to the Overworld will be created when a player enters the Twilight Forest..

When first entering the Twilight Forest portal, it is recommended to patiently wait for the dimension to generate. The Twilight Forest is intricate and has many different types of dungeons, so its generation may take awhile. It is also recommended that the portal's location be marked on the minimap before venturing out, as the adventurer can easily become lost in the huge dimension, even with the minimap's overhead view. If one happens to get lost and can't find their original portal, another portal can be created through the same means that got them there.

Technical Blocks[]


  • When entering the Twilight Forest portal in SMP for the first time, it may freeze the whole server until the world is generated completely.


  • It has been reported that upon exiting Twilight Forest, player's structures are gone. It is possibly caused by chunk errors, so making backup before entering Twilight Forest is recommended.
  • If NEI's block tooltip is on, most plants from this mod (and some other mod) will disappear if looked at. Disabling the block tooltip will stop the bug from occurring.
