Minecraft Crafting Clay Soldier MOD V2
Here’s how it operates: A clay soldier is an item you are able to hold in your hand. It’s crafted using a clay block (for substance) and soulsand (for sustaining intelligent life). Specifically, one block of clay and one block of soulsand can be used to create four soldiers. After you have a pleasant little pile in your hands (up to 16), right-click to put them all at once. They’ll quickly spread out and begin to roam the landscape. They walk slow and do not jump high, but they have enough arm strength to climb up just one block. Unfortunately, since they lack a good skeletal support structure (as well as skin, for instance), their delicate figures could be horribly mutilated by even the weakest of blows. A player can cripple a clay soldier in just a single punch. So naturally, they are not hostile towards anything larger than themselves. So, what in the world could they be qualified to fight against? …Other clay soldiers, of course!
Clay soldiers possess a team-based mentality. They respect similar colors of the race, and treat their identical equals as brothers. But when colors other than grey come up, things start to get a little bit more exciting! You can use red dye, blue dye, green dye or yellow dye to change the color of the soldiers, after which set them loose to start a fight! Grey soldiers are peaceful unless attacked, but other colors will rush in for the kill without mercy! Their natural hatred towards members of another spectrum enables a lot of exciting events to take place in your Minecraft world. Build giant battlefields, arm your fortresses towards the teeth, and allow your soldiers transform our planet into a sea of crumbled clay!
…But then again, it is simply a lot of identical clay men, right? And there is nothing interesting about this, can there be? If only there have been a way to create things more interesting… OH WAIT, there is!
Obviously it’s not just clay! there’s A lot more you can do with your miniature armies! Choose from a variety of equipment, arm your men towards the teeth, this will let you showdown to see which kind of there’s help more beneficial to survival! All that you should do is press q to drop a product on the floor for them. You can even drop a sizable pile, and also the clay men will split it amongst themselves.
Since clay soldiers are so small, most conventional weapons for example swords and bows become unwieldy. So the most apparent thing to do is to begin with the basics. An easy stick can easily be held by a clay soldier, and is their fundamental source of offensive power. It will randomly improve their attack by half a heart, or perhaps a full heart for 15 uses before it breaks.
One more thing to be worried about is protection. Because they’re so small, how could any type of armor fit onto them? Well, apparently , only one piece of leather can be easily folded right into a handy chestplate, reducing every blow from the fellow soldier by 50% for 15 hits in total. Simple and classy.
When it comes to issue of health recovery, clay soldiers possess the intrinsic ability to digest and falter the atoms within carbon-based foods to produce raw element compunds that can repair their weakened molecular bonds. In short, they are able to consume food to achieve health. Since one bit of meals are too much for them, they will divide it into four meals and eat them correspondingly when their health gets low. Combining all four meals, any food item is enough to recover all of their health bar. This will work for just about any item of food (and for mushroom stew, they’ll even eat the bowl). The only exception is cake – it’s far too large for a clay soldier to transport all at one time, so that they won’t accept it.
Moving onto more interesting things, clay soldiers appear to have the ability to recognize a monarch among their ranks. Gold is a symbol of power, so utilizing their incredible metalsmithing skills they’ll craft a gold ingot right into a crown and put it on. Each team will only have one king, unless the kings are extremely a long way away from each other that they can be considered as rulers of various regions. When one clay man becomes a king, all of those other nearby associates follows it diligently and stay very close. Some may wander because of the fact they technically don’t have any eyes and can’t see their leader, as well as the greater degree, they be a very tightly-knit society.
Everybody knows that anything can be made a minimum of Five times cooler if it glows at nighttime. With lightstone dust, you are able to turn your soldiers into living glowsticks, and then any night time battlefield into a raving disco party area! Keep track of your troops by utilizing lightstone dust at night. On top of that, it lasts forever, much like our current torches
As if a gigantic clay war wasn’t awesome enough, now you can add explosions into the mix! A clay man will instinctively incorporate sulfur into their basic body composition to make themselves appear “creepier” for their opponents. But those black specks aren’t only for show! Whenever a besulfured clay soldier meets his demise, a small explosion will bring his enemies along for that ride. It will also destroy three or four adjacent dirt blocks, but it is absolutely nothing to worry about.
For which they don’t have any cake-consuming ability, they make up for within their capability to eat sugar. Just one lump from it will send any soldier right into a frenzied craze for any whole minute, making them more agile and greatly increasing their walking speed. They tend to be responsible though, plus they won’t eat another lump of sugar prior to the effect wears off.
In times of great despair, teammates fall and great armies die, leaving the tired souls of every individual fighter with nothing to do but rest for eternity. Measuring only the situation for humans, though! Clay soldiers only become incapacitated when their bodies are extremely mangled to even bend a single joint. With a simple lump of clay, any soldier can repair a fallen comrade’s wounds and send him back towards the battlefield, effectively causing a full revival. One clay lump is enough to revive four fallen soldiers. Just don’t expect any ressurecting to occur in the middle of a fierce battle.
Well, that information was all good. But something just doesn’t seem right… don’t some soldiers ride mounts onto the battlefield to enable them to really obtain the drop onto opponents? I mean, no army can truly be threatening unless it’s a chance to harness the raw power and of one of nature’s finest beasts. And well… oh, never mind. This mod does have mounts after all.
Indeed it is true, any clay soldier can be given the ultimate gift in times of war: something to sit down on. Using dirt and soulsand, you can craft several horses for use on your armies to use and enjoy. Horses don’t have any team alleigance, so any soldier can use any horse. While a soldier rides a horse, he will experience greatly increased speed. Also, 50% of all incoming attacks directed at the soldier will instead affect the horse. The horse has 50% more health than the soldier, so generally, the horse is going to be taken like a prize for winning your dream.
When a clay soldier dies, his body will be dropped on the floor as a doll, to help you ressurect him again immediately if you just pick him up. You may never lose a single soldier (unless you’ve given him gunpowder and that he explodes), so you can keep the battles opting for as long as you want! Make videos, post pictures, inform your friends, and heck, go outside and make some real clay soldiers or something. Just don’t forget to download the mod, because you will be missing out on among the best stuff that ever got dug out of the sand!
~ Version 5 Additions and Changes ~
For all those seeking to make even tougher soldiers, look no further than your nearest crafts and arts store. With simple materials like flint and cloth, your soldiers can boost the equipment they have! If your soldier has a stick and there’s a bit of flint nearby, he’ll use the flint to sharpen his stick for additional attack power! And when there’s a block of wool nearby, an armored soldier can grab a few and make some padding to lessen damage even more. The flint and cloth will not be consumed in the process, so they can be used infinitely! Remember, a cozier soldier with a sharper stick is a happier soldier.
As if sharper sticks wasn’t enough, now there’s a level better method to fight dirty! Redstone dust will work for mainly two things – nerding your Minecraft world, and making people’s eyes sting worse than a snail in a salt factory. If you give your soldiers a handful of redstone dust, they’ll throw it in their opponents eyes to temporarily blind them. And while blind, a soldier is completely defenseless and not able to attack! It really works for up to 2 uses, but when I were you, I’d bring a pair of goggles in case any dust gets thrown astray.
For all those stubborn opponents just who walk around everywhere when all that’s necessary these phones do is stand still, there’s slime. If you give your soldiers a slime ball, they’ll make like Dr. Scholls and apply that green goo straight to feet of the opponents. One slime ball is sufficient for two counts of adhesive. While a soldier’s feet are stuck, they cannot move an inch. They can’t be pushed or knocked back, and will only get free after about five seconds – or when the block underneath them is destroyed. For now, they’re just sitting ducks, so you may too escape the bread crumbs.
You’ll discover as you experiment with the clay soldiers it’s unfortunately very easy to get carried away. If you spawn diet program the soldiers, they have a propensity to find their way to avoid it of the battle arenas and into just about every nook and cranny inside your world. When worse turns to worst, there is the Clay Disruptor. An opportune little device made of 2/3 clay, 1/6 redstone and 1/6 stick, it’s incredibly powerful much more the best hands. Pressing the shiny red button on the front causes the device to emit incredibly powerful radioactive waves which are capable of instantly killing nearby clay soldiers and causing cancer in small butterflies. Each time you use it, all soldiers inside a 16 block radius are just like toast. It lasts for 16 uses before it implodes upon itself and ceases to appear in our universe. And for some mysterious reason, it appears to work on dirt horses too. And if you’re looking to cause some clay genocide, this is the right tool for the job.
