Today I bring to you guys a Minecraft mod called Elf's Magic Mod. This mod introduces magical items into Minecraft. I'm not just talking a few magic wands, and potions. This mod adds items and features not seen before in Minecraft. This includes items such as Haste Gloves, Blast Gems, Mana Berries, and more! As the title says, this mod is still in very early development. Most (all) items don't yet have textures. If you'd like to create textures for the mod, please PM me.
Since this mod is still in very early development, I'm fully open to suggestions, and changes you guys think I should make. Anything from recipe changes, to total item changes.
In EMM, experience points are treated as "Mana". Several items in the mod require Mana to be used. Mana Berries are a quick way to gain a few Mana Points. Consuming a Mana Berry gives the player 5 additional MP, and restores half a hunger point. Mana Berries can also be planted to create a Mana Berry Bush.
Mana Berry Bushes
Mana Berry Bushes work much like wheat. They have several stages of growth. Each stage yields a specific amount of Mana Berries when harvested. A fully grown Mana Berry Bush yields 3 Mana Berries. Unlike wheat, Mana Berry Bushes can be planted on grass, or dirt (unlike wheat which must be planted on farm land).
This item is crafted using four obsidian, four redstone, and a diamond. When the player takes damage from an explosion, the damage will be absorbed by the Blast Gem if it is in the players inventory. In turn, the Blast Gem will be destroyed. Screenshots will come when the recipe is finalized.
This is something that's a little tricky to come up with a recipe for. If anybody has any better suggestions, I'm all for it! The recipe contains two wool and two diamonds. Gloves don't do anything on their own, but are used to create different types of gloves that give the player various abilities while the player is holding it. Screenshots will come when the recipe is finalized.
Gloves of Haste
These Gloves of Haste give the player a speed boost while being held, at the cost of MP. The current MP cost is 10 MP every 40 ticks (2 seconds). The Gloves of Haste are crafted using a glove surrounded by 8 sugar. There is currently a bug with removing Mana that I'm trying to fix. Screenshots will come when the recipe is finalized.
Gloves of Mana
Work in progress. This glove is crafted using a pair of gloves surrounded with Mana Berries. While the glove is held, the player will receive 5 MP every 25 seconds, damaging the glove. The glove can be used 10 times making it more efficient than Mana Berries on their own. Additionally, hunger isn't required to gain MP using a Mana Glove.
Again, this mod is still a very early work in progress. Most of the items listed are finished, or closed to finished, however, I'm still fully open to any suggestions. I really like to hear feedback!
