The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hello guys and girls, I want to present you a new mod that is called "ObsiCraft" or "Obsidian Craft"! Don't rush to close this theme, it's not one more mod adding only usual, boring tools. When I was making it, my first aim was to create an interesting mod. And here it is!
This mod adds some new blocks, including decoration blocks and blocks with functional. It also adds charms for making game funnier. Then, there's fuel, that smelts 1 stack of material, stacking cure for Wither battle(I hate when my inventory is full of milk), an upgrade for stone sword(that is not connected to obsidian) and other stuff. It adds new phase of development, after Nether but before End. I am planning to add a use for dragon egg though.
This mod adds 4 decoration blocks:
The next one is Obsidian Glass:
(you will get 5 glasses)
We are coming to the Glowing Obsidian Brick, also known as Obsidian Glowbrick! Yes, it's Obsidian Brick with the glowstone blotches.
And the last one is Theurgic Block. It's the only one decorative block that is used in crafting.
Obsidian Brick, Obsidian Glass, Obsidian Glowbrick and Theurgic Block:
That's all decoration blocks. And we have come to the most interesting part!
The first block is Obsidian Restorer. This machine allows you to repair your tools and more for energy. No, it doesn't use IC2 or BC3 energy, it only uses core energy, that can be acquired from Obsidian Shards, that I will show you later. So, the block:
The lower 3 items in crafting grid are Obsidian Shards, the most useful ingredient for this mod.
Obsidian Restorer also has its own GUI:
1: Slot for fuel;
2: Slot for crystal if you want to take energy from this device;
3: Tools that will be restored;
4: Player inventory;
5: Amount of Core Energy that is in Restorer now
Interface is very simple and it shouldn't be hard to understand it.
Repairing tools costs energy, standard value is 2 CEU per 1 damage point. This value can be changed in config file.
The next block is Obsidian Healer. On right click it completely heals player and even removes fire from him. Also, the Strange Bottle can be acquired using this crystal.
The next block is Obsidian Spikes. This one slows mobs and animals down and hurt them for 0.5 heart per half a second. Spikes has no effect for player or drop so they are very useful for farms. And, as a little bonus, spikes are completely invisible for any mobs!
Cactus Spikes, Obsidian Shard.
And the last, but not the least, is Obsidian Mine. It explodes when any mob or animal touches it, but it doesn't destroy any blocks. It kills the mob though and can't be activated by player. Explosion power and possibility of player activation can be edited in config file. Default explosion power is 1,5 standard TNT.
The item in the center of the crafting grid is charged obsidian shard, will be described later.
And the next is Obsidian Combiner! This device magically combines 2 items into one. Combining costs energy - 5 CEU per tick(1 second = 20 ticks) and lasts for 7 seconds. So, it costs 700 CEU per combining.
1 - slot for fuel;
2,3 - slots for ingredients;
4 - progress displaying(fire burns upside down )
5 - result slot;
6 - slot for crystal in case you want to take energy from this device;
7 - player inventory;
8 - CEU that is contained in combiner at the moment.
Since the charms started to break, our greatest minds invented a new machine that allows to repair them as they can't be restored because of their magical potential. It uses core energy as well, rather 5 CEU per 1 damage point.
1: Slot for fuel;
2: Slot for charm that is to be repaired;
3: Slot for crystal to take energy from charger;
4: Player inventory;
5: Core energy that is contained in charger at the moment.
And the next one is Crystal Charger. This magical device fills crystals with energy it gets out of obsidian shards.
-Why should we use it? - you will ask me, - We can charge our crystals using other devices as well.
I shall answer. When you burn your obsidian shards in this device, it has 10% chance to produce 10 CEU more than usual.
This recipe can use silver from other mods if they support forge's ore dictionary.
1: Slot for fuel;
2: Slot for crystal to be charged;
3: Player inventory;
4: Amount of core energy this device contains at the moment.
Obsidian Obelisc. This is a machine that transmits energy to another devices in a radius. It can be 1-3 blocks tall; Each block increases the transmitting radius. If there is an Energy Keeper beneath the Obelisc, Obelisc will transmit Keeper's energy and give the unused energy to it.
Blocks - radius:
1 - 3;
2 - 7;
3 - 12.
1 - Shows the obelisc level(1, 2 or 3)
2 - Slot for fuel.
3 - Slot for energy container if you want to take energy away.
Energy Keeper. If you want to store your energy, this is the best way to do it. At the start it has 100.000 maximum CEU; But you can improve it using Energy Enhancers. Every Energy Enhancer placed at the side of the keeper increases its maximum by 90.000 CEU. Oh, and one more thing. One Enhancer can enhance more than 1 keeper. Enjoy~
You've probably noticed teleporting properties of Ender Pearls, didn't you? Now, with this mod, you can concentrate them all in one block! It can teleport almost anything that touches its top: loot, you, your friends, mobs, even the particles! If it's powered by redstone, it teleports 25 blocks forward. Otherwise its power is 2 blocks.
Video with it:
The enderpearl block is still not perfect as it can move objects only horizontally and hard to configure. So, we have found a way to make a better one - teleporter! Here's an interface:
This is what we have there:
-input field where you can enter a teleportation distance;
-apply distance button;
-a button that changes direction of the teleport. This block already can teleport things vertically;
-Action string that shows you the latest action you've done with this block.
The max number of blocks it can teleport is 20.
I have shown you good and nice features of the mod. And now we have tome to... To its darker side. Quite so, there are grim and dark things. One of them is blood magic. Even though it's evil you can use it to make something really powerful.
So, the question is - how do we use it? First of all we need to craft Blood Altar and 8 Blood Frames:
Then place Altar on the ground and surround it by Frames:
We are almost done! You will need this construction to get Blood Gems which are usable in crafting. To get them, just trap some mob on Altar(don't worry, it won't escape) and kill it via Sacrificial Knife(described later). If you've done everything right, mob will die by 1 hit and drop 1-2 Blood Gems.
Also, don't place any blocks above altar or frames. You were warned.
Materials are items which are used in craft. So, the list:
Obsidian Shape is the first thing you must make in this mod.
Obsidian Shard is the second thing and the most important material. It gives 100 CEU(Core Energy Unit) in devices.
Flaming Charged Coal is a fuel that can smelt one stack of material in furnace(burns for 640 seconds).
Charged Obsidian Shard gives 800 CEU in devices.
Impacted Obsidian Shard gives 150 CEU in devices.
Small Obsidian Shards are now used as a fuel for the Sun Fury, but they stack up only by 16, so you can't take more than 576(36x16) of them.
Silver Stabilizators can deal 20 hearts of damage per hit, but they have only 1 use. They can stack up to 16.
Obsidian Amplifier is used to craft tools. I can almost hear you thinking:
"Aww, tools! I thought this mod was original... ", but don't you worry! These tools are the unusual ones. See their description to be amazed.
Blood Gem. Used to craft weapons.
Lava Charm is used like an infinite lava bucket.
You will get your buckets back.
Water Charm works like Lava Charm but with water. They both have 512 uses.
You will get your buckets back.
They like telling about one charm, the recipe of which was lost in ages... They say it improves the possibilities of the one who uses it. They say he becomes something more that a usual human... But for a few seconds. Then he becomes a human again, but he'll never be able to forget how it feels...
Anyway, some of us discovered the recipe. The charm discharges by 1% upon use. It also gives player the following effects for 20 seconds:
There is another version of this charm; already known one. It's called "Miner's power". It discharges by 1% upon use and gives player the following buffs for 5 minutes:
As you already know, this mod adds a healing crystal. But it's so uncomfortable - you must place it before using! That's why I added Compact Healer. It can be used very fast and heals player + removes all effects when used, but it costs 1 obsidian shard per use and has only 128 uses.
Do you believe the ghost stories? Our scientists do, every one of them, isn't that strange? Anyway, they've made this charm learning the ghost nature. You can become a ghost with it for a limited time. Every time you use it it will discharge by 25% and will give player the following effects for 30 seconds:
Tools and Weapons
Sun Fury! This is an unbreaking weapon that deals 7 hearts of fire damage to mobs and animals. Fire damage means that mob is killed by fire, and, therefore, animals will drop cooked meat. But it takes 1 small obsidian shard per hit.
Also mod adds an upgrade for stone sword - now it deals 3 hearts damage and has 150 uses.
Silver Sword. Now it only deals 2.5 hearts of damage and has 1024 uses and has "Smite V" enchantment, but I'll add it a great use in the future.
It is a scepter; which means it needs to be charged before shooting. The longer you charge, the bigger explosion you will make. The maximum is 2 seconds(you can charge it longer, but it won't give any effect) - the explosion of standard TNT. Oh, yes, it makes explosion at the block you're looking at. Won't work on entities, only blocks. Uses 1 small obsidian shard per shot.
Lightning Fury a.k.a Mjollnir.
It's also a scepter; it creates a lightning at the place you're looking at when you release the charge. It also consumes 1 small obsidian shard per shot, but it must be charged at least 2 seconds before shooting. Don't worry, it won't eat your shards if you charge it less than 2 seconds. That lightning doesn't spawn fire nearby, but it can still burn mobs and turn pigs into pigzombies and charge creepers. But don't charge too many creepers. Seriously, this won't be fun.
If you've read the "Materials" part properly then you're ready to be amazed. Otherwise prepare yourself. Now.
There are 12 tools - 4 pickaxes, 4 axes and 4 shovels. Each is acquired by combining Obsidian Amplifier with wooden\stone\iron\diamond tool. Tools have same properties as their components, but you can right-click when holding a tool to use it. Each use consumes 1 small obsidian shard. Now, list of tools:
Wooden - Pickaxe of Fire Fish: applies the "Water Breathing" and "Fire Immunity" buffs on player.
Stone - Pickaxe of Mass Destruction: exterminates all stone in a 9x9x9 cube.
Iron - Pickaxe of Enlightenment: turns stone into Shining Stone that emits light as glowstone and drops smooth stone.
Diamond - Pickaxe of Teleportation: teleports player at the block he's looking at. Careful: if you're looking at a wall, you'll be teleported into it.
Wooden - Shovel of the Farmer: plows dirt, sand and gravel.
Stone - Shovel of the Explosion: not exactly explodes, just mines all the dirt in 9x9x9 radius.
Iron - Shovel of the Sand King: turns dirt and gravel into sand.
Diamond - Shovel of the transmutation: turns: dirt=>sand=>gravel=>mycelium=>dirt.
Wooden - Axe of Food: you can literally eat it to fully restore hunger and get some regeneration effect.
Stone - Axe of Transmutation: transmutes the tree blocks to other types(like oak to birch).
Iron - Axe of Growth: works like Bone Meal.
Diamond - Axe of Repairment: repairs itself for 5 points.
Not quite disappointed, eh? =)
Do you remember Blood Altar construction? Now you can use Blood Gems to craft awesome weapons.
Sword of the Sacrifice: instantly kills enemy(doesn't work on bosses) but returns dealt damage to you. The damage can be blocked by armour.
Vampire Sword: heals player at a percentage of damage dealt when he strikes an enemy.
Blood Blade: heals player at a percentage of mob's maximum hp when he kills it.
Energy Vampire: charges Obsidian Soul at full damage dealt to an enemy. If it doesn't work, try putting OS into active bar.
When a simple glass bottle touches an Obsidian Healer crystal, it starts getting filled with some kind of liquid. You suppose it can remove fire and any potion effects.
Crystals can contain some amount of energy.
There are three types of crystals - Energy Crystal, Energy Orbital and Obsidian Soul.
They can contain 5k, 15k and 25k CEU accordingly.
There is food in this mod. At first, you need to make Clay Bowl:
Then - to bake it:
At the next stage you already can make a soup(restores like standard one, but stacks):
Or you can fill it with water to make cactus soup(restores 1 chicken leg):
You can also make cactus soup in the wooden bowl, but it will restore only half the hunger.

1. Download and install Minecraft Forge.2. Start and close minecraft.3. Download this mod(links are below).4. Place archive with this mod in the %appdata%/.minecraft/mods/ folder(if Windows).5 Have fun!
This looks neat, and I really like some of the aspects, but I, as well, object to the total OPness of some of the items, like the obsidian receiver, and pretty much all of the weapons.
I REALLY like the restorer though.
I currently use a mod that has an anvil that simply repairs tools with no cost (although it costs 19 BLOCKS of iron, 4 diamonds, and 4 eyes of ender to craft. it seems like a lot, but it's sort of obnoxiously overpowered. I actually stopped using it in my new 1.4 world)
I like the idea of needing fuel to repair tools...
I'll keep my eye on this mod.
is there any way you could put in a config to disable all tools, and the obsidian receiver? I already have an obsidian tools/armor mod that is much more balanced.
making things easier is nice, but there's a point where you have to stop to keep the game fun.
I like working for my resources.

Cool video, I'll add it to the main post. But.. Ingot needs impacted obsidian shard instead of usual and Sun Fury uses obsidian stick.
I'll add an option that disables weapons and tools to config in the next version. It will be released as soon as I make something interesting, nearly Saturday-Sunday. If I'm lucky it will happen tomorrow.
Hey Jeaciaz, your mod looks absolutely LOVELY. I'm thinking of making a mod spotlight on it as soon as I can, which will be tomorrow probably. Check out my channel if you want to see the video quality, and tell me if you want me to do something special.
Also, have an Internet, on me.

So, FINALLY, I remembered to try the mod after so many weeks!
I still haven't got to try the machines but I can already say that the silver ingots need more uses!
Smite isn't that hard to get, but the Silver Sword is probably the most balanced one of all the tools/swords so far!:P
I'm........dissapointed....very much so!
The mod has huge balance issues!
1: The Compacts Healers and the Charms of Fast Digging are horrendously overpowered, especially the upgraded versions!
Not only the Strong Compact Healer can heal you completely for little cost but it also adds a shield that absorbs damage!(we already said that getting blaze rods isn't as difficult as some people think)
Using it takes way too little time!
One click was enough to use 3-4 obsidian shards at once.....Jesus...
The Charm of Very Fast Digging has unlimited uses.....nuff said!
2: Getting Looting and Fortune so easily, I personally find it a bad idea!
Silk Touch and Knockback don't really matter!
3: I insist that the Obsidian Receiver needs to go, or else expect people to pass more than half their time with the mod on Blaze Spawners!
4: The Sun Fury is atrocious!
Unbreaking tools/weapons with such high power are ALWAYS a bad idea!
It doesn't matter if it takes 1 million gazillion diamonds to craft them!
With all that being said, I still might use the mod anyway, since there are a few things that interest me!
But the mod needs re-balancing!
Already half the mod goes down the trash can......which means I won't use those certain features!
