Hodge-Podge Mod II

Minecraft version: 

Spoiler: Highlight to view
NOTE: This mod still has some bugs, most noteably:

1.7.10 Version:

Portals will spawn Zombie Pigmen at an astounding rate. They WILL overrun the area in a matter of seconds. I would advise trapping your portals with a pitfall.

If you die in a dimension and try to go back after you respawn, the game will crash and the save will get corrupted. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS

1.11.2 Version

Armor item textures have missing textures. I don't think I can do anything about it. Rendered armor works fine thoough.

Staffs now spawn boss mobs 3 blocks away in the positive X and Z directions since the when right clicked oin block event does not work.


This mod is essentially the same as my original Hodge-Podge mod, but the sheer amount of revamp I did to it makes it worthy of its own page now (Kind of like RaolCraft)

In total, there are now over 250 elements, including 121 new blocks, 3 new fluids, 4 new types of armor, 7 dimensions, 74 items, and 45 new mobs.

While the primary goal of this mod is to introduce a myriad of blocks from pocket edition, newer versions of minecraft (that frankly, should have been in the game updates ago), and mostly my imagination, the structure of the mod has been redesigned to add more of an adventurous aspect. With 3 new bosses and another dimesion since the last version, as well as many new mobs, a progression system has been implemented. Now, in order to reach the other dimensions, staffs must be built using resources from the other dimensions you've gone to. These staffs will summon the next boss, but only when used in a certain dimension. Killing the boss rewards you with items, XP, and the igniter to the next dimension.

The bosses are fought in this order: Smoldering Knight>>Tainted Knight>>Sentry of the Great Tree>>Greatwood Borer>>Ender

In addition to the new bosses and mobs, there are now three full sets of armor, plus the darkworld helmet, which when worn, grants permanant night vision and water breathing. Tools (not hoes) can now be made with redstone crystals, and a new reddish-purple material called tyrianite.

Most of the crafting recipes. Armor and tools are not shown, but everything else is 

Planned Features (assuming I can actually get them to work correctly):

NOTE: If you know how to do these or would like to help make them, write a comment! I will gladly accept help, since I have never been able to get these to work right.

-Generated Structures to the world, including: Crystal Clusters,  glowing obsidian spikes, wanderer houses, and temples

-Get the nether reactor core to work like it did in pocket edition

-Block rotation for pillars, logs, and fancy floors

More information can be read in the progression walkthrough, which is found in the zip folder download.

Most recipes are  (in my mind) pretty easy to figure out. I will try to make a image with all of them in the future.
