Basic Elements mod is for those who like to create spells with command blocks and things of that nature. Or, on the other hand if you would just like some off-hand magical spells to go with your sword, that too. In this mod you will find 7 spell orbs. 6 in the “weapons” tab, 1 at the bottom of the “misc” tab. The Orbs feature the 4 basic Elements; Water, Earth, Fire, Air. There is also the Nether Orb and 2 creative only Orbs named Creative Orb and Invisible Orb. Each Orb can be thrown like a snowball. They are very accurate and have a smooth flight path.
Air Orb: Puts space between you and your enemy. Sprint towards an enemy, jump, then hit them in the face with one of these to perform a double jump over them.
Fire Orb: These have explosive and fire damage that affect entities but not blocks.
Earth Orb: Does standard base damage to things it hits.
Water Orb: Does a nice/fair amount of damage to the following:
- Magma Cube
Nether Orb: Travels through things, like walls, and entities. If you find yourself in a situation of needing crowd control or hitting something from the other side of the wall, this is it.
Invisible Orb: Does a base damage of 3 to entities, can be customized with textures, particles, and things like that to create your own spell to fling around. assets –> guru –> textures –> entity –> InvisibleOrb. png must be named InvisibleOrb (case sensitive).
Creative Orb: Supports the same NBT tags as Fireworks. Is also invisible. Will exist where the player initially threw it for a period of time when thrown. (Is stationary when thrown). This is more like a detonation device, a flash exist entity for execute commands, or maybe something for beefy arrow trails. Good for volcanoes too.
