Litematica is a mod allowing the management of schematics (kind of hologram of structures) in Minecraft. It was developed to take over from the very famous Schematica, the one that has not been updated since 2018, and to work with the latest versions of Minecraft. For this, the author takes advantage of the Fabric API and the MaLiLib library, which allows him to update the mod quickly and is already available for versions 1.13.2, 1.14.4, and 1.15. Minecraft 2, 1.16.5, and 1.17.
- The main feature of a schematic mod is to display a “hologram” version of a structure, which helps in building it and on where to place the blocks. It also includes an overlay function (configurable) to highlight missing, extra or misplaced blocks.
- Litematica also includes a large list of materials, including a list of HUD materials, to help you collect the materials needed to build a structure.
- There is also a function schematic verification ( Schematic Verifier ) comprising an overlay that you can use to scan the entire schematic area and look for potential errors. This can be extremely useful, especially with technical builds or with redstone, where a small mistake can break everything.
- There are also several helper features in Creative-only mode, such as Fill, Replace, Delete and also a Paste mode for ‘pasting’ patterns in the world (immediate / direct in single player, using the / setblock commands in multiplayer) .
Use and Controls
First, the main menu of Litematica opens by default with the key
,(comma) and the configuration GUI opens with
, + C(unless you are for example on the QWERTY keyboard layout, then
,will be replaced by
, + Cwill become ). There is also a button to open the configuration GUI in the main menu.
M + C
To create a new diagram:
- Start with the Area Selection mode first , as this will make things easier / faster.
- You can change the mode either with the button at the bottom left in the main menu of Litematica, or by holding the Ctrl key and scrolling with the mouse wheel while you hold the “tool piece”, which by default is a stick (it can be changed on the Generic Configuration GUI Tab ).
- Now, if you only need one box, you can switch to Simple zone selection mode in the Litematica menu (it defaults to Normal mode ).
- If you need multiple boxes (sub-regions), stay in Normal mode and create a new selection in the Area Selection Browser and make sure it is selected (highlighted in white) . It’s automatically selected when you create it, so don’t click it (once) or you deselect it.
- Once you have the selection to use, you can left and right click while holding the “tool” to select the first and second corners respectively. You can sneak around by clicking to place the corner next to the block you’re pointing at, instead of the inside.
- You can middle click to select a corner or sub-region area to work with in Normal mode. You can Alt + Scroll to move the currently selected corner or box.
- It is often easier / faster to use Expand mode instead of Corners mode . You can switch between them with Ctrl + M or on the Generic Configuration tab . In Expand mode , you first right-click to move and reset the selection on the clicked block, then left-click on a block on the edges of your build, to expand the selection area around all these positions clicked.
- In Normal mode , you can create and rename as many sub-region areas as you want in the Area Editor GUI (default keyboard shortcut to open which should be multiply by numeric keypad, or use the button in the main menu).
- Once your selection is complete, you can use a keyboard shortcut to save it as a diagram, or use the button in the Area Editor GUI .
To work with loaded schemas:
- To use the saved schema, you need to go to the main menu -> Load Schematics , leave the Create Placement checkbox enabled, select your schema and click Load .
- It is useful to switch to Schematic Placement tool mode when working with the loaded diagram, as you can then use the “tool” to move and position the placement, by clicking or Alt + scroll .
- To rotate or mirror it, you can go through the main menu -> Schematic Placement -> Configure , or use the numeric keyboard shortcut minus to open this placement configuration GUI.
- Once the placement is in the right position, I recommend locking it to the placement configuration GUI so that you don’t accidentally move it.
- So one thing to note here is that you can load a schema once and create any number of locations out of it (from the Load Schematics -> Create Placement menu ). So the placement is basically the data of position, rotation, etc. for a given “visible schematic copy”.
- For example, to render only one layer at a time, you can change the rendering settings in the Render Layers configuration tab . There are also keyboard shortcuts to cycle through mode, move layer to player position, and move layer. By default, cycle keys are M + Page Up / Down , to move layer is M + Home and to move layer is Page Up / Down .
