Magical Fruits Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5

Food in vanilla Minecraft has limited application beyond staving off hunger and the occasional golden apple.  With 314owen’s Magical Fruits Mod, lunchtime becomes a little more interesting.  This mod adds various fruits that provide utility-based enchantments for the player.

 

The basic element used to craft magical fruit is called “pure magic”.  This is obtained by smelting magical ore, which can be found throughout the world.  They are broken just as easily with any tool as they are with a fist, so mining them is pretty easy.  Simple crafting recipes using dyes, fruits, vegetables, pure magic and the occasional cactus are used to create the new items.

 

Each fruit yields a different benefit.  All of them are time limited:

 

  • Charmed strawberry – this fruit provides a full 15 seconds of instant health restoration (a similar effect to that experienced in Peaceful difficulty).

  • Enchanted kiwi – the most awesome fruit in the world provides a significant jump boost for one minute.

  • Magical banana – a slower regeneration than the charmed strawberry is provided by this, though it lasts for an entire minute instead of just 15 seconds.  Better for prolonged battles.

  • Runed melon – this one is pretty awesome – it provides you with night vision for 20 minutes!

  • Special orange – another awesome one, eating this orange allows players to breath underwater for three minutes.  Time to build an underwater cave?

  • Superstitious coconut – does the name mean that the coconut itself is superstitious?  Either way, it yields two minutes of fire resistance.

  • Voodoo pear – two minutes of complete invisibility.  Good for running for your life…  Or sneaking up on an unsuspecting friend.

  • Witchcrafted pineapple – an inferior version of the runed melon – nightvision for five minutes.

  • Wizarding grapes – run like the wind for 60 seconds!

  • Wizard’s cherry – possibly one of the most useful fruits, this cherry gives you the haste enchantment – faster mining for an entire minute.

  • Fruit bowl – finally, this fruit bowl is created by combining various other magical fruits.  It yields a more powerful version of the magical banana and for a much longer time.  The regeneration is equivalent to the Regeneration IV enchantment and lasts for three entire minutes.  Might as well be invincibility!

 

So, there’s just one small detail – each fruit has a 20% chance to do nothing.  This is intended behavior and not a bug.  Still, not a bad trade for these potion substitutes.
