Extend-A-Hand Mod 1.10.2, 1.9.4, 1.9 is a mod with the intent of extending the ‘hand’ of the player in building. So far, this mod mainly focuses on allowing for distant block placement, and the creation of lines from distant points to the player’s position, simply pulling from the player’s inventory.
Items So Far
The items used for building are called extendos. All extendos are able to select blocks in the world as their building resource by shift-clicking on them, and the building resource can be unselected by shift-clicking again on the same resource. If a resource is selected, the extendo will attempt to find it in your inventory and use it to build with, and if no resource is selected it will instead try to use whatever block your selection is touching when you right click. Additionally, in creative mode the extendos do not use inventory items and are simply free-build tools.
Builds single blocks, but allows placement much further away than normal building.
Much like the handy extendo, can build to distances very far away. The huge advantage of this extendo is that it will also build a straight line of blocks from the selected point in the distance, all the way to the player’s positions, allowing for quick construction of large areas.
Currently the most powerful extendo. Allows for hollow box creation between two selected points. Useful for quickly creating entire rectangular rooms, but can also be used to create 2D planes or even just straight lines between two spots. Simply select two points, then hold shift and click one of the selected two points again to build the box.
The potion seen in this recipe is a regular Potion of Leaping.
Each type of extendo can be seperately configured with the following options in the mod config file.
- Maximum Amount of Blocks Built Per Use
- Maximum Distance Reachable
- Item Damage/Durability Toggle and Amount
- Item Cooldown Time
- Creative Only Toggle
Additionally, the planar tool can have a maximum single axis length set as well.
