Vanilla Minecraft only has two states of matter: solids and liquids. In the real world, we have three (and sometimes four) states of matter, including one you breathe every day: gas.
Glenn’s Gases mod introduces that third state of matter to Minecraft. With Glenn’s Gases, players can enjoy all sorts of gas-related features in their world. This mod adds dangerous gases and helpful gases in order to make Minecraft a more challenging and interesting game.
Here are the basic features included in the Glenn’s Gases mod:
-Multiple types of flowing gases with different properties
-Automatically generated gas pockets that players will encounter while digging in caves
-Smoke and deadly steam
-Lanterns that are vital to your survival underground (torches will explode when exposed to some gases underground, while lanterns will not, which means lanterns are your new favorite light source)
-Gas pipes, pumps, collectors, filters, and other gas-related machinery
-Gas Furnace which can smelt an entire stack of coal into a diamond
One of the most important things to remember after installing Glenn’s Gases mod is not to light a torch underground after encountering a gas pocket. Otherwise, you’ll end up in a situation like this:
Instead of using torches all the time, it’s a better idea to use lanterns. Lanterns can be powered using torches (which are placed inside the lantern itself) or glowstone. Glowstone lanterns don’t expire, making them a valuable tool when spelunking.
Gas piping also plays a key role in your Minecraft adventure. First, you craft a Gas Collector. Then, you attach piping to that Gas Collector and pipe the gas wherever you need it to go. You will need to place Gas Pump blocks every 16th block in your pipeline in order to make it as efficient as possible.
At the end of your gas pipeline, you place a Gas Tank. Gas Tanks filter out air store pure gas. Right click on your Gas Tank with an empty glass bottle in order to fill it. You can use Gas Bottles to power lanterns. Different gases last different lengths of time.
However, the most important thing to do with collected gas is power a Gas Furnace. Gas Furnaces are unique new items that get hotter the more items you smelt. That means the furnace becomes more efficient when you put more items in.
Glenn’s Gases is a large mod that adds a well thought-out new mechanic to the game. It adds new challenges, new adventures, and new useful machinery to your game. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then download Glenn’s Gases using the instructions below!
