TacticalBacon: Reloaded Plugin for Minecraft 1.7.8

Do you frequently relax in your glorious block home, sipping milk or mushroom stew, wishing that you could catapult explosive pigs or chickens at your enemies?  If you didn’t before, you will now.  Allow me to introduce PsichotlX’s (relatively) new mod, TacticalBacon: Reloaded.




So, allow me to reiterate: this mod gives you the power to launch explosive animals as weapons.  Essentially, when a pig is created through this mod, they will violently explode as soon as they take any sort of damage.  It also introduces the pigapult and hamahock, two new commands which are used to launch said animals (allowing them to take fall damage and thus explode).


As this mod is an update to another mod (with permission of the original author), it has a few new tricks up its sleeve.  Namely, you can now set almost any mob to be explosive – thus the chicken bombs mentioned earlier.


Now, about those commands I mentioned earlier – there are actually quite a few:


  • /hg – this drops a hamgrenade (an explosive version of whatever mob is selected in the file).  It can take fall damage and will explode as soon as it is hurt.  The hamgrenade can also be dropped as an item, which must be designated in the configuration file.

  • /pp – the pigapult, this launches an explosive mob in an arc away from you in the direction that you are looking.  Functions the same as a hamgrenade.

  • /hh name – replace name with the name of any player on the server and the hamahock will seek them out.  This functions like a hamgrenade as well, but also explodes when it comes in contact with the selected player.

  • /tb – display the TacticalBacon plugin version.

  • /tb reload – reloads plugin, thus updating any alterations made to permissions or the configuration file.

  • /tb exit – quits any mode you are engaged in.


Of course, permissions can be set with this mod, so if you only want a select group of players to hurl animals around, it may be so.  There is a permission for each command.


How to Install TacticalBacon: Reloaded for Minecraft 1.7.8


  1. Download the latest version of the TacticalBacon: Reloaded plugin.

  2. Place the .jar file from step 1 into your game or server’s plugins directory.

  3. Run the game or server and wait for it to fully load.

  4. Restart your Minecraft game or server, or login to your admin account and execute the /reload command.

  5. Run the server or enter a world again.  The plugin should be properly loaded.


This is a pretty fun mod, but I can’t help feeling like it could be more than what it is.  Can you think of any more ways to tactically deploy bacon justice?  Leave some ideas in the comments!
