Lucky Block is out for Minecraft 1.12!

Technical Changes
Spoiler - click to reveal

1.10.2 & 1.9.4
Minor bug fixes

1.9 Update

Added updated 1.9 AddonGenerator to to fix model changes in 1.9

Added #chestLootTable() for specifying a chest loot table, e.g. type=block,ID=chest,tileEntity=(Items=#chestLootTable("chests/simple_dungeon"))

Added #randPotion and #randSpawnEgg, which give a random potion/entity name, replacing the #randPotionDamage and #randSpawnEggDamage random ID (since these are no longer used by the game)

Combat Update (1.8-1.9)
Potion particles now use the name of the potion with the 'potion' property (e.g. type=particle,ID=splashpotion,potion="poison")
Added support for Lucky Items in Add-ons
Added Add-on Generator for easier Add-on file generation (See below)
Added support for single int/byte arrays (Syntax: array=23:)

Added #ePos and #eExactPos

Added structure blockMode=air
Hash variables in NBT drop tags are now automatically cancelled ('#'), no need to do this manually, and [#] can be used to prevent auto-cancel.
Added #pUUID
Bug fixes

What is the Lucky Block?

The Lucky Block mod adds just one block, yet over one hundred possibilities to Minecraft! Just mine the Lucky Block, cross your fingers, and hope it will drop the items you need. But now, with this new version, you can expect more than just items; The Lucky block can spawn animals, monsters, other entities and even structures!

From giants to fireworks, sticks to diamonds, the Lucky Block will give you an exciting experience every time you mine it.
What can it do?
Drop a huge variety of items

Spawn mobs

(But no Ender Dragons for sure!)

Spawn other entities (Like fireworks)

Make structures (What could possibly be above you?)


Gold. Think about it, there isn't much use for it really. There's no point wasting your gold on tools, swords and armor. How many clocks do you need when you can just look at the sun. And if you need gold nuggets to make potions, all it takes is one gold ingot and you already have nine.

Do you wish there were better things to do with your gold? Or maybe if you could exchange it for something else?

Now there's a block that makes gold worth mining. It's called the Lucky Block, and can be crafted with 8 gold ingots and a dropper, and can also be found naturally in your world. When you mine this block it will have an equal chance of dropping items, spawning entities or structures.

WARNING: If luck is not on your side, this block may have devastating effects on you or your world. It is recommended that you backup your world, use a not important world or go hardcore and take the risk.

Regular crafting:

Downloading and Installing

Download button is at the top on the right. Requires Minecraft Forge. Simply download with the button above and put the .jar file (without extracting) into your mods folder. Download Minecraft Forge here (I reccomend the installer): http://files.minecraftforge.net/

Download the Lucky Block from the official website using the download button in the top-right.


Add-ons are user-made additions to the Lucky Block. They add new types of Lucky Blocks with different features. The latest version fully supports add-ons, and provides a Lucky Block add-on folder in .minecraft/addons/lucky_block. If the add-on supports the latest version, simply place it in that folder.
If you are an add-on creator, refer to the documentation for information on creating a custom add-on. You are also reminded to not post your add-on on Planet Minecraft. Below is an example of a custom add-on. This is only a template.
Template add-on: Download here

Add-on Generator
This program will automatically generate all of the required Add-on files. Make sure to extract the program from the .zip file before running. Refer to the documentation for information.
Add-on Generator (1.9): Download Here

The Lucky Block can be configured using the files in .minecraft/config/lucky_block/version-X-X-X. Refer to the documentation for configuration instructions.

Everything you need to know about the Lucky Block configuration system can be found in the documentation. This can be viewed on the official website. Please report any errors in the documentation.

I'm on Linux (ubuntu 17.10)

No matter what version of minecraft and forge I use, I always get

net.minecraftforge.fml.common.LoaderExceptionModCrash: Caught exception from Lucky Block (lucky)
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

I've used 2 different PCs and minecrafts from 1.12.2 down to 1.10.2, all with correct version of forge - no other mods.

Is this mod Windows only?

You Are Allowed TO Create And Upload Your Own LuckyBlock
Just Not on PMC

BTW you have 5 drops :/
now that download is old, I got A LOT of drops now xD
For anyone who has a Mac and does not know how to convert a Zip file into a Jar, click on the zip file (DO NOT DOUBLE CLICK) and press enter. Go to the zip text and rewrite it as Jar. It will automatically convert it, then you can place it in the mods folder. Hope this helped!
THANK GOD you put this on planet minecraft!

Hey I made a Lucky Block Add-On Tutorial ^
when i load up my minecraft in forge 1.10 it always crashes, can please someone tell me what to do?
Well maybe your PC can't handle mods with 1.10 and minecraft then decides to crash. That may be the problem why it crashes(Mine is laggy with 1.10 forge).

1 7 10 Download doesn't work for me
It works perfectly fine for me. Maybe your forge is glitched? Or you download the mod off a different website?
is there on for 1.7.10?
Yes there is a download.
If im in peaceful mode will mobs still spawn with this???????
How do I download the mod as .jar file because whenever I download it it is a .zip file not a .jar file
How do I turn a .zip file into a .jar?
Are You Linux, Windows Or Mac?
Windows: Change The .zip To .jar When Renaming It.
Linux: Right Click It And Press Export Here And Then Compress It Into A .jar By Pressing Compress
Mac: I Honestly Don`t Know.

Is the lucky bow, sword, and potion only available from lucky blocks, or is there a crafting recipe? If so, what is it? Please answer as soon as you can I need it for a YouTube video.
Im guessing I am really late but with what I know, you can't craft the lucky bow, sword, and potion.
When making an add on for it how do I make the drops have sounds, making it for 1.9. I want sounds like kehaan has for ssundee and crainers vids.
can you make it for 1.7.10?? plssss
There already is one ;D
