[1.7.2] Repose - Walkable soil slopes. Give your spacebar a break!


Recommended Posts

Hello players,


this mod introduces walkable soil slopes and more to Minecraft. This means you can now walk up gentle slopes of grass, sand etc. without continually jumping. This works by making soil blocks* act as stairs, whose shape varies according to the elevation of neighboring blocks. Visually, the soil blocks are still the same cubes as before. A config option allows the same behavior for "natural" stone such as that found in caves.


Additionally, soil is affected by gravity (falls down when unsupported) and will spread sideways into piles when landing or freshly placed. This makes creating slopes easier, but it also makes early-game shelters more challenging. Fine-grained soils such as sand and gravel can also spread as a response to nearby block changes, and so hitting a sand wall can cause a significant collapse. Config options allow control over this falling/spreading behavior.


*Soil blocks are: Dirt, Grass, Mycelium, Farmland, Clay, Sand, Gravel, Sand, Soul Sand and Snow.



Please let me know what you think of this mod, and any bug reports or suggestions you may have. Enjoy!



This mod requires Minecraft 1.7.2 and Forge 10.12.1 (revision and newer). It was built with revision; use this specific version for maximum compatibility. Note: do NOT use revisions 1070-1072 as they can cause a crash.



[*]If you don't already have a compatible version of Forge, download the Forge installer (or if not using Windows, go to the Forge download page to get the jar archive). Then run the installer and choose "Install Client".

[*]Download repose-1.7.2-1.0.0.jar and place it in the "mods" subdirectory of the Minecraft install. (On Windows, that's %APPDATA%/.minecraft/mods)

[*]Run the Minecraft launcher and select the compatible Forge profile. Click "Play". To confirm that the mod was properly loaded, click Mods on the main Minecraft menu and look for it in the list.

The mod is also available on curse.com and has a Minecraft Forums thread.



To configure Repose, click Mods on the Minecraft main menu and scroll down to the "Repose" entry. Then click Config to access the mod options. Each option has a tooltip help.


All options are saved in config/repose.properties under the main Minecraft directory and can be edited there if needed, although the in-game menu already provides access to all options.
