Version: 1.3 - multiplayer support added!


Check out this video I made to see what just got added to E-Tools:

Be sure to watch my youtube video if you are lost Posted Imagehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz6FGnF7g8c

Are your chests full of redstone again? Do you want tools better than diamond tools without getting a huge mod?
Well, my friend E-Tools (Energy Tools) are the tools for you! This small minecraft mod features a brand new tool, weapon, and armor set with special abilities that can burn off that redstone.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Well Done Spotlight by BeckBroJack:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By default, all E-Tools have the same effectiveness and durability as diamond tools. When they run out of durability, they become defective (same stats as iron, but with infinite durability) instead of breaking. Defective tools can be upgraded back into E-Tools by using a repair recipe. Depending on the settings you have assigned the tools using the ETData.txt config file, the recipe may be either a single redstone block or eight redstone blocks. Furthermore, depending on the same setting, tools may be repairable on an anvil with either redstone dust or a redstone block.
The StandardToolRecipes.png file shows all of the tool recipes when the settings are set to inexpensive (default)
The ExpensiveToolRecipes.png file shows the recipes for if the tool settings are set to expensive (configurable)



The recently-added Energy Armor is 20% more protective than diamond armor and is, by default, just as durable as iron armor.


Also, they have the following abilities that use redstone dust (right click to use):

- Energy Blade (sword): sets ground on fire - uses 1 red stone; sets enemies on fire on attack - uses no red stone

- Air Blaster (shovel): destroys a 3x3x3 cube of dirt, sand, or gravel - uses 2 red stone

- Drill (pickaxe): Instantly destroys a single block of rock material (stone, ore, etc.) or dirt/sand/gravel - uses 1 red stone (can destroy bedrock)

- Chainsaw(axe): instantly destroys a single block of wooden material; destroys log blocks above a destroyed log block (cuts down trees) - 1 redstone

- Tiller (hoe): fertilizes/tills a 3x3 area of dirt/grass - 0 redstone; destroys a 3x3x3 cube of leaves/plants/vines - 1 redstone

- Repeater (bow): instantly fires a fully charged arrow - 1 redstone

Installation (Typical Minecraft Forge Install):
- download latest version of Minecraft Forge (install) from: http://www.minecraft.../board,3.0.html
- run Forge installer with Java SE Binary
- download mod_EnergyTools.zip from top of page or from CurseForge at: http://minecraft.cur...-powered-tools/
- extract all files from mod_EnergyTools.zip into .minecraft/versions/(forge_version)/(forge_version).jar

To use ETToolData.txt:
1. If ETToolData.txt does not exist, start Minecraft to create ETToolData.txt
2. Alter specified data values within ETToolData.txt (in .minecraft/config folder) as you would like
3. restart minecraft

Unfortunately, modloader is dying and minecraft forge is taking its place. I am probably going to make all of my future mods using forge because it is a more advanced and easier to use API, ultimately allowing better mod content and compatibility. Also, forge enables multiplayer support.

great looking mod! i have a question and a suggestion, though... is there a config option for utilizing straight diamonds (not diamond blocks) for some crafting recipes? if not a cool thing to add would be an even cheaper version of some of the items utilizing only diamonds and or redstone blocks, anyways, i digress, diamond for you :D

I found another bug. for some reason my drill will not mine any ore. it breaks and then reappears. I'm not sure why it happens but the only way to get ore is to right-click the block. any other block works fine but strangely the ores are the only affected blocks.

EDIT
I found out that if you have this mod installed you cannot have the Katana forge MMO Mod installed something about it conflicts with the drill and prevents it from being able to mine ore blocks.

Level 50
Grandmaster Modder
June 30, 2013, 7:53 am

Hey! I'm back!

So, what's happening is probably because the katanaà à forge MMO mod is a pretty big mod. By that, I mean, it modifies original source code in minecraft. Since it modifiesà à the same files used by the E-Tools mod, strange things can happen, like that. There is not much I can do about it, sorry, though :/.

Also, I was thinking about the gun idea while I was away, and it started to seem a little op to start with. I am trying not to add extra items, like bullets to this mod,Ã Ã so I had this idea:

The repeater, like the ones in terraria (http://terraria.gamepedia.com/Repeaters)

The one in this mod willà à work just like normal bows when you hold the right MB down, but, when you tap the RMB, an arrow will be fired at full force at the cost of one redstone.

PS: do you know when minecraft is going to update?

EDIT: oh, never mind, tomorrow, I think

Like I said earlier, I am leaving for a week starting tomarow. When I get back, I plan on adding an energy pulser (sci-fi handgun kind of thing). While I'm away, any ideas on how it should operate?

Should it have rapid fire? What crafting recipe? How should it consume redstone? What should it fire?

thanks!

The gun should be rapid fire with right click. sort of a toggle. it uses 5 redstone and you rapid fire until you release the r-mouse button. a downside could be that you have the bow slowness effect while in rapid fire mod. It should work like a gun in a fps game, left click shoots the projectile. In my opinion, i think some sort of redstone bullets should be used as ammo. this could also make the gun less op, since you have to watch your ammo. crafting recipe ideas. http://imgur.com/a/jSgSM

I have a question, do you guys think it would be good if the drill entered an "insta-break" mode when you right click (requires 2 redstone per second or so)? This way, you won't expend a ton of redstone and you will still be spending redstone.

Tippyfoo here with the news on E-Tools:

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their support for this mod!

I also want to put this out there: I will not be here next week :(. This is probably the worst week to be away because of the 1.6 update. This means you guys, unfortunately may have to wait a week after the update to get the 1.6 version of the mod. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I will try to get the mod updated as soon as I get back :).

I also have been working on another mod, my magnum opus of mods (so far). There is this one tricky bug that I have to hammer out. Hopefully, I can post that after I get back from my trip.

I can mine obsidian with one r-click and it just pops into my inventory! Its one of the most handy mods I've seen for a while. I didnt really like how if i wanted nonbreaking tools I had to install IC2. this is a great substitute that keeps the vanilla feel a lot.

OR a rapid fire mod where it fires bullets that do 1 - 3 damage each. AKA .5 - 1.5 hearts each. It'd look cooler to see a ton of bullets get shot rather than just one that kills everything.

This mod is actually pretty cool. I almost prefer the defective sword over the actual one just because of the looks XD the mod is very great and the only overpowered thing in my opinion is that the defective tools work as iron. A bug i found is that the tools can not be turned back into e-tools after they've become defective and the tiller cannot be repaired

June 14, 2013, 5:26 pm

Hmmm... What recipe are you using for repairing the tools?

Also, would you think having the stats of stone tools for defective tools would be better?

June 14, 2013, 5:34 pm

the 8 redstone blocks. I actually don't mind it being iron because if i get a sword defective im going to keep it like that XD its really awesome. I just have one concern, if, on a singleplayer world, you enchant an e-tool and when it becomes defective, wouldnt it lose the enchant? or is it a seperate data value of the e-tool with a different name? I'm not quite sure. The nerf making the items cost much more, makes it an actual goal to work for in minecraft thanks for the hard work and quick reply

tippyfoo

Grandmaster Modder
June 14, 2013, 5:45 pm

For the repair recipe: Make sure expensiveToolRecipes in ETToolData.txt is set to true and make sure to save the .txt file.

For enchantments: As of now, tools will lose their enchantments when they become defective and won't get them back. I may change this in a future update, since I've been asked this before :)

Thanks for the feedback; I'm glad you like the mod!

I think that if you let the tool break, then you should lose the enchants. Gives more incentive to repair it, and makes it so that you need to fork over additional levels to keep the enchants, instead of just waiting for its power to run out.

Also, the defective tools shouldn't even work as tools. I mean, if I have a battery powered drill and it runs out of juice, then it won't drill until I recharge it, right? Maybe for the sword, it can do stone damage while defective, but the tools seem like they would require energy just to function.

Grandmaster Modder
June 15, 2013, 11:20 am

I do agree with losing the enchantments. That was my first perspective on it, so that will be the default setting for the tools

For defective tools, I think what I'll do is make an option to change how the defective tools function in the .txt file, that way everyone's happy :)
