If you ever watched the TV show lost, then the name Smoke Monster brings back some painful and confusing memories.
The Smoke Monster in Lost was a creature that randomly attacked the characters. It ended up being a manifestation of the island’s power or something like that, but nobody really remembers because the ending of that show sucked.
Fortunately, the Smoke Monster mod for Minecraft wants to bring all of the good things about the Smoke Monster to Minecraft while leaving out all of the bad things.
Here’s how the Smoke Monster Mod for Minecraft works:
-A giant column of black smoke has been added to the game
-This column of black smoke, called the Smoke Monster, only lives in a specially-created biome called the Smoke Monster Biome, which looks a lot like the jungle biome
-The Smoke Monster cannot leave the Smoke Monster Biome
-There can be an infinite number of Smoke Monsters lying in wait in this biome
-When a Smoke Monster spawns, it creates a glowing stone called the Heart of the Island at its spawn point. The Smoke Monster will not be killed until its respective Heart of the Island is destroyed.
-Smoke Monsters drop ‘Darkness’, ‘Redness’, and ‘Whiteness’ items that can be used to make new weapons, tools, and armor
-When a Smoke Monster is chasing you, the only way to avoid its wrath is to hide in a new tree called a Banyan tree, at which point the Smoke Monster will give up the chase and begin searching for a new target.
The Pickaxe of Redness is particularly cool. It’s only as durable as a diamond pickaxe, but it has a number of other enchantments added on that make it even more powerful, including Efficiency, Fortune, and Unbreaking enchantments
Another food item called the Apple of Whiteness is also very powerful. The Apple of Whiteness provides 10 regeneration and 24 absorption for five whole minutes. The extra absorption provides a total of 50 extra hearts, making it a very powerful item to eat before a battle with, say, a Smoke Monster.
Whether you’re a fan of Lost or you’ve never watched it, the Smoke Monster Mod is a unique and fun mod that adds an entirely new challenge to the game. To experience the intensity of the Smoke Monster Biome and its dangerous inhabitants, follow the download instructions below.
