Addons come down to personal preference at the end of the day, but there are a few options to consider when new players begin their Minecraft adventures. Players can find the best plugins for beginners as of version 1.19.1 listed in the article below.


Minecraft: Beginner Survival Addons for New Players

10) Ty-el Configuration Overlay UI Pack

This addon for Minecraft: Pocket Edition allows players to access a set of features from a settings overlay at the top of the screen. Players can do the following with this plugin:

  • Change your camera perspective
  • Access your world and game settings.
  • Hide the overlay completely. To reactivate it, players can access its pause menu.

For new Minecraft players who want to tweak their settings to their liking, this makes the process very convenient.


9) Add more tools

Although Minecraft already has a comprehensive collection of tools, this add-on further expands the selection. With More Tools, players can create approximately 40 new tools based on seven new types of materials. Players can make tools from the following existing materials:

They can also make tools from new blocks like:

  • enderite
  • glowing quartz
  • lapis lazuli quartz

These tools have a distinct effectiveness, balancing them well among other types of existing tools. Adding accessibility by creating new tools should help players diversify their approach to work and combat.

8) True Backpack

Inventory management is a big part of Minecraft. Despite this, players can quickly fill up their inventory slots without even realizing it. This can be terribly inconvenient, forcing players to drop and discard items and blocks to make room.

With True Backpack, players can create backpacks with a large amount of inventory space. Even better, players can place their tools on the sides of their backpack in their own separate slots, freeing up space on their hotbar. It’s even possible to place items like lava cubes in these slots, providing light as players travel.


7) Waypoints Addon

For new Minecraft players, it can be easy to get lost in the almost endless world. Without a map or knowledge of game coordinates, it’s not hard to get lost.

However, this is where the Waypoints plugin helps. By creating a waypoint with a compass, an ender pearl, and two empty maps, one can place the block in the world.

Players can name and customize each landmark and use it to teleport back and forth from other landmarks. Players can create an entire network based on waypoints to travel in the blink of an eye.

6) Dynamic Lighting

Lighting in Minecraft has certainly improved over the years, and is currently as effective as ever at preventing hostile mobs from spawning. However, players still need light sources to investigate dark places like caves or the new deep dark biome. This addon improves the lighting a bit by making it dynamic, similar to the Optifine mod in Minecraft: Java Edition.

The light provided by torches, lanterns, and other light sources is now more realistic, allowing players to distinguish objects at greater distances. This won’t change the lighting mechanic itself when it comes to spawning mobs, but it should certainly help players in their exploration.


5) Stone tombs

Players new to Minecraft are likely to die a few times while learning the ropes. Without certain cheats, that means losing your items upon death. However, StoneTombs is a great addon to help players recover their lost loot without any hassle.

After dying, players will leave a tombstone at the place of death. Once they respawn, they will receive a key that will teleport them to their death coordinates. The key can then unlock the tombstone, allowing Minecraft players to safely and efficiently retrieve their gear and other items without tracking down the location of their death on their own.

4) Food Plus 2

Surviving in Minecraft means having a healthy supply of food, but the game isn’t exactly known for having a wide variety of food. This is addressed with the Foods Plus 2 add-on, which adds crops and other foods to the game.

Players can acquire new seeds through fishing. The plugin also adds new trees such as palm trees, cherry blossoms, and maples. As a bonus, players can find new mobs of butterflies wandering through the new plant and animal life in the game.


3) Hammers

Minecraft certainly has a solid variety of tools to choose from, but they all lack one particular trait: multi-block coverage. Players can break blocks one at a time using the basic tools in the game. However, the Hammers addon introduces a new hammer tool that breaks blocks in a 3×3 area, making them great digging and land clearing tools.

They can be crafted not only from traditional game materials, but also from the following:

  • Red stone
  • Coal
  • Copper
  • Quartz
  • Emerald
  • lapis lazuli
  • Amethyst
  • Obsidian

This ensures that players have plenty of options in terms of material availability and enhanced durability.

2) True Weapons

Minecraft’s vanilla weapon selection isn’t ideal, with players choosing between melee and ranged weapons. The True Weapons add-on certainly complements the list of weapons. The add-on introduces the following class of weapons through its new blacksmithing and advanced crafting table blocks:

  • modern weapons
  • japanese weapons
  • anglo saxon weapons
  • germanic weapons
  • classic weapons

These weapons follow the same material qualities as conventional weapons, starting with wood and progressing to netherite. If Minecraft players need a new approach to combat on their first adventures, this addon is the perfect choice.


1) What am I looking at?

For new Minecraft players who may not know much about the game world, what am I looking at? It is an excellent complement. If you hover your crosshairs over a block or mob, a small tooltip will appear detailing the target. When players enter stealth mode, they can get even more detailed information from the plugin by hovering over a block or mob.

The plugin also comes with some useful commands/functions in the cheat console that can enable players to the plugin itself. If new players are making their way into a Minecraft world, this is an incredibly useful source of information until they learn more about blocks and entities.
