Minecraft Piston Mod | Pistons, Traps and Lava Bridges

Mod: Add Working Pistons to Minecraft

An exciting new mod, the Minecraft piston mod adds moving, working pistons to the game. They’re not Steampunk pretty (yet) but they work. How do they work? Well pretty much as one might expect them to. They lift and push using the power of steam, or in the case of Minecraft, redstone. Especially useful is the fact that pistons operate on both the horizontal and vertical planes. They can also act as launchers. If you place a block like sand above the piston, it will be hurled into the air when the piston is activated. Fun and games for all the family!

The piston mod makes it possible to create bridges, and potentially even mob traps. When combined with lava, this is an especially dangerous device, though it should be acknowledged that it is possibly more dangerous to the creator during construction than to anything else at any other time. Imagine a series of these connected to one another. When triggered, perhaps by a pressure plate they suddenly push burning lava up through what previously looked like nothing more than a peaceful green field or refined corridor. Possible defensive applications in PvP are worth considering, though it is doubtful that this mod will work in SMP, where it could be very useful indeed.

This is an important mod for many reasons. For a long time, people have been looking for action blocks, and aside from levers and buttons there haven’t really been any. Imagine the additional possibilities if other moving blocks, like pulleys and gears were integrated into the game. Moving platforms, elevators and automated cities would be within our blocky little grasps.

There are a multitude of possible applications for a mechanical addition like this, one such example is a lava bridge, built to demonstrate the excellence of the mod. That’s right, flaming blocks of sand launched into the air leaving behind only molten lava. How’s that for a home protection system you can believe in?

How To Install Minecraft Piston Mod

Installation is simple, if you’re already using Mod Loader v5, you can simply drop the .class files into your Minecraft .jar. If you’re not using Mod Loader v5, install it. If you’re sticking to Mod Loader v4 out of an anachronistic sense of loyalty, then you have a decision to make. Upgrade and unlock the power of pistons, or cling to an increasingly distant past?

Glitch Notes:

I have been testing this mod and I note that if you place a vertical piston, then put a glass block on top of it and attempt to activate it, it will transform the vertical piston into a horizontal piston and push through solid blocks.

Mod: Edit Your Inventory in Game with TooManyItems

This mod is a lot like Invedit or Invgrid, except it is in game. This means that you can spawn items or edit your inventory without closing out of Minecraft. This works on the newest version of Minecraft, 1.4. To install this mod, first download the required files TooManyItems. Once you have downloaded the files, install this mod like you would any other. If you don’t know how to do this, follow these easy steps:

    Find your minecraft.jar file. On Windows, this can be found by going to %APPDATA%/.minecraft/bin.
    Backup your minecraft.jar
    Open minecraft.jar in a program such as WinRar or 7-Zip
    Move the files from the download into your minecraft.jar file
    Close minecraft.jar, and run Minecraft

Once you’ve installed the mod, use these tips:

    When your inventory screen is open, left-click on the items on the right to add a full stack, or right-click to add 1 at a time. To turn TMI on or off, press “O”. Your preferences will be saved for both single player and multiplayer.Craft Fast: Right-click on the output square when crafting to craft the maximum possible amount.

    Fast transfer: Hold shift while placing an item into a chest, or into your inventory from a chest, to transfer all items of the same type and combine stacks. (Works while the inventory overlay is disabled).

Troubleshooting: If something goes wrong, try these steps:

1. Make sure that you have deleted META-INF from Minecraft. This must be done everything the game updates.
2. TMI may be incompatible with other mods. Does any other mod include the same game class file? (gp.class as of 1.4)
3. Two other mods may be incompatible. Nothing can be done about this.
4. One or more mods may be for the wrong version of Minecraft.

Update: Sorry, I accidentally posted the wrong version for 1.4. I have updated the download link. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Mod: You Are the Creeper with this fun add on

This mod is a very fun, unique hack. This mod turns you into a fully controllable, exploding Creeper! You can explode, control mobs, fight humans, and more! This version works with the newest version of Minecraft, beta 1.4_01. In order to run this mod, you need Modloader and “You are the Creeper“.

Once you have downloaded all of the files, install them like you would any other mod using these steps:

    If you haven’t already, delete the META-INF folder
    Drag all of the files from the unzipped files you downloaded into your Minecraft.har

Remember, it’s a good idea to backup your original Minecraft.jar file in case something goes wrong or you’d like to start fresh.

To make your creeper explode, hold “E” for a few seconds.
