So Minecraft 1.5 finally made it so that snow can stack up …… but the guys at Mojang seem to have missed something. The snow doesn’t pile up on it’s own! Well, this mod fixes that. When it’s snowing, any snow blocks that have a view of the sky will randomly grow one layer higher every once in a while. Also, when snow blocks melt, they don’t melt all at once, but instead one layer at a time. Snow will never pile up more than one block.
Snow shovels are special tools that only work on snow. When used on layered snow, they drop the layers rather than snow balls, and when used on block snow they drop the block and not snow balls. Because snow is such a soft material, snow shovels will last five times longer than regular shovels.
There are several different varieties of snow shovel, wood, stone, iron, gold, diamond, bronze and steel if you have mods that add those metals.
All recipes are as follows, just substitute whatever materials for the iron in this pic.
There is also an alternative recipe for Show shovels if this one is causing compatibility issues. This recipe is the same but replace the stick in the middle with a wooden shovel. This alternative recipe can be enabled from the config.
I also added a crafting recipe for snow golems, but only if you have NEI installed. (The egg would be useless without it.)
There is also a recipe to turn four snow layers into one snow block. Just put them in a square like you would with snow balls.
These can all be disabled in the config file, and the snow shovel id’s can be changed too.
Snow is now allowed to land on any block with a solid top surface, including Glass and Ice. Watch your frozen lakes get covered in snow.
Internet Explorer users:
When downloading the .exe version of the installer, save the installer to a location like desktop, then run it. Do not run it straight from the browser, if you do you might get the “Skydaz Addons has stopped working”.
Mod Version: v2.2.1 for Minecraft 1.7.10
Mod Prerequisite: Forge
Mod Uninstall Option: Yes
Default Mod Profile: Forge
This mod uses Forge. The default setting will install mod and if not present, Forge to Forge profile. If you want the mod installed to another profile select the version using the installer and then install.
PLEASE CREATE A BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING ANY MODS – START WITH CLEAN MINECRAFT AND YOU WONT HAVE ANY ISSUES!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MESSED UP MINECRAFT. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
All installers require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 to work. Most PC’s already come with it installed.
If you get an error when starting installer then download the framework from here: NET 4.0
1. Download a mod installer for the mod that you would like to install.
Make sure that the mod is for the version of Minecraft you want to use. If the mod is for Minecraft 1.7.10 then all other subsequent mods should all be for the same version of Minecraft. Mixing different versions of Minecraft mods will usually cause conflicts/crashes. Most always the crashes are caused by conflicting mods. Some mods cannot be installed at the same time. The crash log usually tells us what mods are conflicting etc..
2. Run the downloaded installer and click on “Options” tab. Then click “Clear Mods” and “Clear Config”.
This should only be done once per version or if you have a crash that you do not know how to fix! This will remove any old mods and outdated files, this way they do not cause the new mods to crash. This should be done every time you want to switch the version of Minecraft. Say, if Minecraft updates to 1.9 version and new mods come out for that version then you would have to remove the old mods and config files in order to add the new mods.
3. Now go back to the “Install” tab and click “Install Mod”.
This will install the mod and also create the “Profile” where the mod will be installed. If the mod uses the Forge loader then usually the profile will be called “Forge” and so on. The installer shows what profile it is installing the mod to.
4. Play Minecraft. Make sure you use the profile “Forge” to play.
If the profile is not setup then you can follow these instructions on setting up the profile. Make sure to use the profile the mod is installed to, otherwise the mod will not work!
Installing mods is simple using the installers.
Simply download either the .exe or .zip version of the installer from the “Downloads” section. (Both are same, you just have to extract .exe file from zip folder and sometimes zip works without any issues)
After downloading the installer, run it and click “Install Mod”. That’s it!
Your mod is now installed and ready to use. Please refer to the “Installer Instructions” page should you need more information or if you have issues installing the mod.
