This mod was developed as a little side project of mine. I had seen previous Meteor mods before with some of the features I have here, but they have all been discontinued or missing. After many hours of coding I have completed my goal and come out with an awesome mod. This mod includes many excellent features that make it stand out from the rest of the old Meteor mods. The features of this mod are listed below.
- Meteors fall to the ground and explode, creating Meteorite Ore and sometimes bringing some extraterrestrial mobs with it. Maybe this explains where creepers came from? Be quick and get to those Meteor blocks because once they are cooled, no meteor chips for you.
- Meteorite Tools with Magnetic properties. No need to go grab a block when it comes to you!
- Meteorite Armor also with Magnetic properties. With all the armor on, it protects you from fire!
- Meteor blocks start cooling once they hit the ground, limiting the number of meteor chips you can earn based on how cool it is. They will also burn you if you touch them while they are hot.
- A Meteor Shield Block that protects your land from Meteors crashing down upon it. Make a Meteor Shield even more powerful by adding a red Meteor gem to it.
- Test land to see if it safe with a Meteor Shield Testing torch! (Beware, a torch can only be used once)
- Small, Medium, and Large Meteors.
- Slight hint for you to know where a meteor crashes when it falls.
- Cooled Meteor blocks can also be found while mining. This was added so you could possibly protect your land before a Meteor falls.
- Properties file for deciding how rare it is for a meteor to crash plus many other properties.
- Summon meteors with a Meteor Summoner crafted from rare Meteor Gems.
