Thought I'd make a thread to collect & share some little tweaks I've been making for myself while sifting thru the decompiled single-player sources. Here they are!
Installation, as always, involves copying the provided .class files into the root of the minecraft.jar and then deleting the MOJANG_C files from the META-INF directory. See my AUTOCART page for a more detailed example.
Drastically lowers gravity for all living things (players & mobs) and removes fall damage. Watch cows and pigs bouncing 20m high. Or better yet, try getting in a fight with a skeleton in mid-air: turns out, arrows knock the afflicted up in the air a little. So, with LowGrav & good aim, the usual ducking & dodging is transformed to a levatated ballet of missiles. Overall, dumb fun. Back up the original ge.class first (or your whole minecraft.jar), though, for when you want to come back down to earth.
Just what it sounds like. Lets you place torches underwater. (Technically, lets torch-blocks displace water, like ladders). If you're worried this makes underwater work too easy, don't be: sunlight doesn't reach the ocean floor, so you'd need torches every few blocks to make it like day down there. The depths are still dang scary.
I was just thinking that the Mooncraft mod and this low-grav mod would be perfect when used together - and they are. :biggrin.gif: I've just tried it and it's a brilliant combination. Totally new slant to the game!

SsssssssssssssssssssssssssSURPRISE! "What the FUUUU..." BOOM
Birdcloud, In your free moments of genius, do you think you might be able to look at enabling torches being able to be fixed to glass! http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=55442. Just a minor annoyance in some of my builds, but I'm all for anything that extends Minecraft's flexibility.
You've done a great job with these mods and you come highly reccomended!
Also, just to say, I love the title of this thread. It sounds like just the sort of shop I'd like to pop into from time to time! :biggrin.gif:
here you go!
This is the same idea as the autocart for mac tutorial
I recommend that you duplicate your current minecraft, so that you can keep any mods you might already have, or just have a back up.
I have snow leopard 10.6.4 (for clarification)
Step 1: Put the minecraft you want to modify into your applications folder.
Step 2: Go download the above file (LowGrav.zip)
Step 3: un-zip it, and move the folder to your downloads folder. keep it there, this is important.
Step 4: make sure minecraft is un-zipped, and in the Applications folder. (Important)
Step 5: Open terminal. just copy and then paste the following code into the terminal box:
jar xf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar
cp ~/Downloads/LowGrav/*.class ./
jar cMf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./
rm -rf mctmp
note: if you want the torches on glass or waterproof torches, just follow the steps the same way, but download the appropriate file and once you un-zip it and put it in your downloads folder, replace the red text above (in the code) with the name of the un-zipped folder.
Step 6: Let terminal do its thing. it should be done in about 3 seconds. once that is done,
Step 7: Open Minecraft and test by jumping.
Possible reasons for failure:
1. you may have minecraft elsewhere than the Applications folder
2. Lowgrav might not be in the downloads folder
3. Either Minecraft or Lowgrav might still be zipped.
4. you didn't copy the code as it appears here (it is different by 3 characters than the one in the Autocart folder.
If your problem is something else, contact me or just reply to this post and someone will help you.
Thanks BirdCloud for this mod also, i can jump higher.
