The configuration file for the mod is located in .minecraft/config/HardcoreEnderExpansion.cfg (servers have the config folder in the same directory as the executable).

Configuration consists of 3 parts - block, item and general. In the block and item areas, you can modify the IDs (only in Minecraft 1.6.4 or older) to not conflict with other mods, but the main topic of this article is the general configuration. In the table, there is a list of all settings, values and meaning. If you cannot see a certain option in your configuration file, you have an outdated version of the mod.

Client and server settings Edit

Setting name Type Default Meaning
achievementStartId number 3500 Starting ID to use for Achievements. Change this around, if you experience achievement incompatibility between mods.

decompositionBlacklist text (empty)

List of items (and blocks) to disable decomposing mechanic for. Blacklisted items cannot be decomposed, and they will also not be returned as an ingredient for decomposed item. Only in MC 1.7.2 or newer. The list is separated by commas, each entry is case-sensitive block/item name and optional damage values. There are also some special cases, listed in the examples.


  • minecraft:diamond_sword - Diamond Sword of any damage value
  • minecraft:stonebrick/3 - Chiseled Stone Brick
  • minecraft:dye/1+11 - Red and Yellow Dyes

Special cases:

  • dispenser - Dispenser - vanilla blocks and items do not need the minecraft: prefix
  • minecraft:* - All vanilla blocks & items - * is a wildcard that blacklists entire mod
