Falling Meteors Mod

Posted on 28 March 2012

There’s a lot of meteor mods out there, but Falling Meteors by AlexDGr8r seems to have them all beat. Unlike other meteor mods, Falling Meteors gives the user a pretty high degree of control over the meteors. A big criticism of some other meteor mods was that people would often turn their backs and then find that their beloved Minecraft creations had been obliterated and transformed into smoldering craters. Falling Meteors enables you to craft Meteor Summoners which can be thrown like snowballs. Afterward, meteors will fall from the sky and crash down on the Meteor Summoner balls. The meteors leave huge craters and deposit one of three materials (meteorite ores, frezarite crystals, and kreknorite chips). These materials can be fashioned into tools and armor that might have special capabilities (meteorite armor, for instance, is magnetized and will attract certain items to you). Sometimes extraterrestrial mobs or rare gems will accompany the meteors. The mod creator is also working on improvements to the mod in order to cause random meteor storms. Don’t worry so much about your beautiful Minecraft home though, you can also build meteor shield blocks to surround the perimeter of whatever it is you want to protect. The mod also enables you to create meteor torches that you can place anywhere you like. The torches also provide an extra useful feature: if the torch is lit wherever you place it, it means that that spot is protected from meteors.

TrapCraft – Create traps in Minecraft!

Posted on 20 March 2012

Stewiecraft’s new version of TrapCraft introduces a couple of neat traps for every day use in Minecraft. The traps include dummies, bear traps, an ignition block, magnetic chests, spikes, false grass coverings, and fans. The dummies are just replications of the default player skin’s head. You can place the head on top of two wooden blocks and mobs will move towards the dummy as if it were an actual player. (It doesn’t seem as if creepers will explode on them though. The video makes it seem ambiguous as to whether or not the dummy goes that far.) Bear traps will trap any non-player character that comes into contact with it. NPC’s will be trapped in place and they’ll also slowly bleed out. Not very humane, but if you really want to catch something, these will be good for that. You can also combine false grass coverings with spikes to make spike pits. Ignition blocks are powered by redstone and will ignite in the same manner as any tool empowered by redstone. Magnetic chests don’t really seem like much, but they’re useful for those of us out there who are too lazy to open chests in order to drop things in them. With these magnetized chests, you can just drop stuff outside of the chest, and the chest will just automatically deposit the item into itself.

Better Enchanting 1.2.5 – Pick your Enchantments!

Posted on 15 March 2012

There’s always been a couple of knocks about Minecraft’s relatively-new enchanting system. For instance, leveling up to get high level enchantments is a tedious process. As exciting as it is to put fifty levels on a diamond pick, how many chickens and zombies do you have to kill to get to that stage? And then you have to stand there at the table alternatively placing the item on and taking it off of the table to get the option to even utilize a high amount of levels on the pick. Finally, the enchanted items are also permanently enchanted, so what if you don’t even like the item’s new powers? And if you do, so what, you can’t repair enchanted items and eventually, it’s going to break on you. Better Enchanting not only makes it so that you can take the item back to the table and repair it (at a third of the level cost of the original enchantment) but you can also disenchant items if you don’t like their current enchantments. The mod also shows exactly what enchantments are going to be imbued upon your weapon, so you’re not just clicking blindly and hoping for Unbreaking IV and Efficiency V.
