Spawn Crystals Mod 1.6.4 enables you to craft and edit the properties of mob spawners in survival. This mod allows you to craft and upgrade mob spawners for some of the mobs in Minecraft.
First off you are going to need to find a vanilla spawner
Then you are going to need to break it to get the first new item added, The Dark Energy Source
The Dark Energy Source is used in both crafting the Crystal Cage and crafting the upgrade items.To craft a Crystal Cage, surround a Dark Energy Source with some iron bars, like so:
This block can be placed in the world.Once you have this block you are going to need to make yourself the Spawn Crystal for the mob you want, this requires a little mining.This mod does add 1 new ore to the game:
Once you have 8 shards, craft em around an emerald like so:
This gives you a Dark Spawn Crystal, craft this with the mob drop of the mob you want like so:
The mobs drops are:
- RottenFlesh = Zombie
- Bone = Skeleton
- SpiderEye = Spider
- String = CaveSpider
- EnderPearl = Enderman
- GhastTear = Ghast
- BlazeRod = Blaze
- PoisonousPotato = Witch
- MagmaCream = MagmaCube
- Slimeball = Slime
- GoldNugget = ZombiePigman
- Gunpowder = creeper
- WitherSkull = WitherSkeleton
Now you Just right click the CrystalCage with the Spawn Crystal and Voila you have a spawner. Some things to note about these spawners, they will automatically respond to redstone:
And if you break them they will ONLY drop the Mob Spawn Crystal, any upgrades you have added will be lost. Other than that they behave like vanilla spawners, to change this you are going to need some upgrades, upgrades require a Dark Spawn Crystal, an Dark Energy Source and an item/block, all recipes are shapeless:
The Dark Crystal of Dominion allows the spawner to work up to 500 blocks from a player. Pretty sure chunks will need to be loaded though…. (default 16 blocks)
The Dark Crystal of Eminence allows the mobs to spawn 10 blocks from the spawner (default 4)
The Dark Crystal of Fury allows the spawner to run 2x faster than normal. (between 100-400 ticks, default 200-800)
The Dark Crystal of Frenzy allows the spawner to run 3x faster than normal. (between 50-200 ticks, default 200-800)
The Dark Crystal of Malice allows the spawner to have 10 mobs around it before stopping (default 6)
The Dark Crystal of Oblivion allows the spawner to spawn mobs in all light levels, mobs however will not catch fire in sunlight.
Just right click the mob spawner with item in hand to apply, it’ll notify you in chat.
