Not Enough Items by ChickenBones, mitchej123
NEI is a successor to both Too Many Items and Recipe Book. It arose around the same time as Craft Guide when Alexandria and a few others on the IRC suggested that I merge both Too Many Items and Recipe Book to remove their greatest flaws, ironically too many items, or in the case of recipe book, too many recipies. Too Many Items was great, but the one thing it lacked was an easy way to search and sort your items. When you had a mod like Red Power coming along with 10000 items both TMI and Recipe Book were racking up the pages. Even if you don't want to use NEI for cheating in items, you will likely feel right at home with the Recipe component of the mod.
ObsidiPlates by Myrathi
New pressure plates made from blocks of obsidian (that only work when players step on them) or mossy cobble (that only work when NPCs step on them). You can craft one of these over a block of wool to make silent versions (that don't make clicking sounds). You can craft any of those four variants in the middle of alternating nether quartz and glowstone dust to make shrouded (see-through) versions. Smelting a silent or hidden plate will return a noisy, visible one.

Ping by dmillerw
Anyone who's played Portal 2 with others has encountered the Ping tool at least once. For those who haven't, it provides a simple way to point out something to the surrounding players, instead of gesturing vaguely in its direction.

This mod attempts to replicate that feature in a useful way, but ensure it actually has use in the Minecraft world.
Progressive Automation by Vanhal
