Mystcraft is a great answer for players who want to travel between their current world, and new worlds. This mod adds a feature called ‘Linking Books’ that allows them to create, and travel to new dimensions, including the vanilla dimensions Minecraft already has.

These dimensions can be simple, and similar to the one you’re already in, or they can be dangerous, unstable maps made of floating islands and crumbling ruins.

This modpack adds the spice players crave to those pesky long-established Minecraft worlds.

This modpack rebalances the food while adding new ways of using it, and growing it. To be exact, this modpack adds 80 new crops, 6 garden bushes, 50 new fruit or item bearing trees, 19 new fish, a simplified Beekeeping, and over 1400 new items and foods. 

It is extensive, and very much worth your time if farming is something you enjoy.
