The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I made this mod awhile ago so I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but I thought it would be a good gesture to release it to the public now. It's my greatest accomplishment in minecraft modding so far, and I thought that some of the ideas would help other modders enjoy the game more. Without further ado, I'll dive right into the meaty parts.
The handheld features:
First off, there are 3 additions to the game of blocks already in minecraft that can now he handheld items. They are:
1. The Handheld Crafting Table
It's the simplest by far, and for good reason. It's not like there's much to explain here. It does what you'd expect it to do. Here's the crafting recipe:
2. The Handheld Furnace
A little bit more complicated, but not by much. It works when you're inside the gui, but once you close the gui, all the items pop out. To be honest I guess it's not very helpful, but it's better to be underpowered than overpowered. Here's the crafting recipe:
3. The Handheld Enchantment Table
The most complicated. It's advantage is two-fold, as it helps you to both enchant items. but also saves tons of space with that whole ridiculous setup you may already have going. Here's the crafting recipe:
When you make the handheld enchantment table, notice that it has 0 bookshelves infused. It will act just like a normal enchantment table. However, you can add bookshelves by crafting them together with the HET like this:
Notice the difference between the two when you open the gui. With one that has bookshelves infused, the bookshelves on the side light up.
Now, on to the good stuff. First, we have the essence collector and the essence converter. Let's start off with the collector. Here's the recipe:
It's pretty expensive, but don't worry, the price will pay off. What does it do, you ask? Well, if any living entity is killed within a 5 block radius (don't quote me on that, and yes, I realize I have the source code), 1 buckets worth of blood is added to the collector. You can either put this into a bucket and place it on the ground, or, if your heart desires, place an essence converter within a 5 block radius (again, don't quote me), and the liquid will be magically transferred over to the converter. Here's the recipe for the converter:
I know it's not very expensive, but it's kind of useless without the collector, and the collector costs enough for the both of them. What the converter does is, when sufficient blood is in the tank (check the list later in the article) and a redstone signal is applied, it will churn the blood into a mob drop. Watch it work:
Neat, huh! Here's the list of costs for each drop:
String: 500 mB
Gunpowder: 750 mB
Bone: 1000 mB
Rotten Flesh: 750 mB
Ender Pearl: 5000 mB
Blaze Rod: 2500 mB
Ghast Tear: 7500 mB
Magma Cream: 10000 mB
Note: DO NOT TRY TO HOOK UP EITHER THE COLLECTOR OR THE CONVERTER WITH PIPES FROM ANY MODS! THEY ARE NOT SET UP TO DO SO, AND MAY CRASH YOUR WORLD! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CORRUPTION OF ONE OF YOUR WORLDS!
Now, on to the teleporter. Here's the recipe:
Yeah, it costs 6 enderpearls and some iron and diamonds, but it doesn't really seem like that much, does it? Well, that's because teleporting itself costs a currency. However much fuel you provide is however many blocks you can travel in any which way you desire. There are two different settings, which are the global and relative settings. Global (indicated by the globe being highlighted), will teleport you to a specific location based on the coordinates you provide. The relative setting (indicated by the globe not being highlighted) will teleport you relative to the location at which you are currently standing. You can give fuel in emeralds (256 blocks), diamonds (128 blocks), gold (32 blocks), or iron (8 blocks). Then, once you are ready to travel, press the big green check mark. Here's an example:
And last of all, we have the bags. A simple white bag can be made just like this:
However, if you want a different colored bag, let's say cyan, for example, you surround any bag in the respective color dye, like this:
The bag adds the inventory of a chest, which can be closed an opened and contain the same contents. However, remember that when you switch the color of the bag, all of the contents will be erased. Here's the gui:
And that's it! Hope you enjoy my mod! Feel free to provide suggestions and give feedback in the comments below!
