The Tinkers' Construct mod focuses on weapon and tool manufacturing. It introduces different ways of crafting better, faster and stronger equipment. The mod adds patterns for tool and weapon parts that allow the player to create hundreds of combinations; each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and effects. After the tool or weapon is created, additional materials may be installed to boost the item's abilities, or to simulate vanilla enchantments.
It introduces a multi-block structure called the Smeltery, which is used to craft metal tools and parts and some decorative blocks, as well as providing a method of doubling ore output; as well as the Armor Tab that provides equipment slots for various apparel, such as the Knapsack and Traveller's Belt.
When the player creates a new world, the character spawns with a book in hand called Materials and You, by Skyla. As the player progresses, other books pop into existence at certain milestones. These books can also be crafted in case they are lost.
Materials and You, by Skyla. This volume contains initial instructions as well as 20 recipes (basic, advanced, books, Smeltery).
- Blank Pattern; this is the starting point of the mod. It is a material for the crafting tables, and can be written into one of 25 different patterns.
- Stencil Table; creates patterns for tool and weapon parts.
- Part Builder; creates the tool and weapon parts. The pattern is not consumed. Metal parts cannot be made in this table.
- Tool Station; combines tool or weapon parts and also adds modifiers to them.
- Pattern Chest; holds patterns. place near the Part Builder and the patterns inside the chest will be shown.
- Tool Forge; upgraded Tool Station, enables more type of tools and weapons to be built.
- Materials and You, by Skyla, Volume I; tan cover, spawned at world creation or crafted from a Paper and a Blank Pattern.
- Materials and You, by Skyla, Volume II; red cover, obtained from crafting a Stencil Table or by crafting Volume I.
- Mighty Smelting, by Thruul M'gon; black cover, obtained from crafting a block of the Smeltery or by crafting Volume II.

The remainder of the recipes are parts for the Smeltery.

A somewhat hidden feature bundled of this mod is hunger preservation when a player dies. In a normal game, once the player dies, the hunger resets and player starts with full hunger bar. But with this mod, upon player's death, the hunger bar remains the same as moments before death.
This can be toggled in the TinkersWorkshop.cfg file under the following line;
B:"Keep hunger on death"=true/ false
