Note: There is a bug in the 7.3 versions of the mod which causes Academies to not spawn. This will be fixed in the mod's 1.12 port.
Academies are ancient, naturally spawning structures that spawn above-ground in the overworld. Academy spawns are quite rare, so be prepared to search for a while.
Academies can be found in deserts, jungles, swamps, plains, taiga, and mushroom biomes. They are always found in a damaged state, however the player can attempt to repair them.
Academies can be made of stone bricks, ancient wood, or sandstone. They are one of the best sources of rare blocks such as ancient stone bricks and ancient wood. They also contain at least one of rare blocks such as culture vats, diamond blocks, enchanting tables, gold blocks, jukeboxes, glowstone, and netherrack, which may be difficult to find otherwise.
Chests in academies can contain:
- Skull Stick
- Relic Scrap
- Pottery Shard
- Plant Fossil
- Ancient Wood
- Book and Quil
- Empty Map
