Falling Meteors Mod 1.7.10 adds different types of meteors that will randomly fall from the sky, including various resources with them. Resources that can be used to craft new tools, armor, and blocks that have their own unique uses.

Falling Meteors Mod

This mod adds meteors that fall down from the sky. With these meteors come various types of minerals and ores to create new weapons, tools, and armor from. Also adds new tools for tracking down meteors as well as blocking them from falling on to your creations.

Features:

  • Meteors Fall to the ground and explode, forming craters that house various minerals from space.
  • New Tools that give different properties: Magnetization, slowing enemies, burning enemies, mining underwater faster, etc.
  • New Armor Sets that give you different abilities: Magnetization, walking on water, immunity to fire, etc.
  • Mine all the minerals from the craters as quick as possible because the debris from the crash will cool, giving less minerals.
  • Protect your precious creations with Meteor Shields that can be fully upgraded to protect a huge area of land.
  • Varying sizes and types of Meteors.
  • Craft Detectors to find out WHERE a meteor is going to land.
  • Craft a Meteor Timer to determine WHEN a meteor is going to land.
  • Freeze blocks using the Freezer as well as craft ice, packed ice, and more.
  • Summon meteors down onto your friends with Meteor Summoners.
  • Obtain an adorable Comet Kitty as a pet.
  • Configure the mod to your liking with many configuration options.
  • Fully SMP compatible.
  • Multilingual.

Falling Meteors:

  • Based upon how you have configured the mod, Meteors will fall randomly from the sky. Based on default configuration, it will take about 3 to 5 days for a meteor to fall. Meteors, however, will not fall too far away from you. When a meteor’s fall location is determined it is based off of a player’s location (on a server, it picks a random player to base this off of). By default, it will fall anywhere between 0 and 250 blocks away from the player’s position.
  • Once a Meteor has fallen, it is in your player’s best interest to go after that meteor wherever it may have fallen. If the meteor was close enough to where the chunk was loaded, the meteor will hit the ground and begin cooling. The cooler the blocks get at the crash site, the less materials you get from them.
  • You can use the Meteor Detectors to help track these meteors so you don’t miss an opportunity to get resources from the crash sites:
    • Meteor Proximity Detector
    • Meteor Time Detector
    • Meteor Crash Detector
  • You can also use a Meteor Timer block to know when a meteor is about to fall.

Falling Meteors Mod Features 1

Meteorite Meteor:

  • The Meteorite Meteor is the most common kind of meteor that you will come across. The crash site will be filled mostly with Meteorite Meteor blocks, but the crash site can also be accompanied by an Alien Creeper or two.
  • NOTE: Alien Creepers can spawn from the meteor blocks on a rare occassion so don’t think you are safe once all the Alien Creepers around the site have been killed.
  • The most abundant resources you will gather from the crash site are meteor chips. Meteor chips are what allow you to craft the Meteorite Armor. Meteor Chips can also be dropped when the Meteor blocks are cool. You only get them about half the time though so it is not as good as mining them when they are hot.
  • The second resource you can gather from this crash site is Red Meteor Gems. They are dropped by the Alien Creepers and can be found in a Meteor Block on a rare occassion. Note that you must mine the block when it is hot in order to get the Red Meteor Gem(s) from the block or else you’ll get nothing.

Falling Meteors Mod Features 2

Frezarite Meteor:

  • The Frezarite Meteor is the second most common meteor you will encounter. The crash site will have frezarite ore scattered about along with ice and some water. There will not be any mobs that hang around this crash site.
  • The Frezarite meteor is considered the worst griefing meteor of them all due to how the frezarite blocks will actually melt and cause water to flow everywhere! This can be remedied by living in a cold biome which would keep the frezarite blocks and ice from melting.
  • All you will be able to gather from this meteor will be the Frezarite Crystals. Frezarite Crystals are used to craft an armor set and tools that are especially designed to help when dealing with water. The tools allow you to break blocks quicker underwater and the armor enables the ability to walk on water with the Cold Touch enchantment which freezes the water underneath your feet as you walk.

Falling Meteors Mod Features 3

Kreknorite Meteor:

  • The Kreknorite Meteor is an uncommon meteor that is extremely devastating to your land if not destroyed quickly. This meteor is rarer than the Frezarite Meteor which is rarer than the Meteorite Meteor. Blazes will occassionally spawn with this meteor. When the meteor is medium or large sized (by default), a portal to the nether will form above the crash site. The portal structure will include some nether brick blocks and some glowstone on its ceiling.
  • When the kreknorite ore in the crash site cools, it turns into obsidian which is the reason why this meteor can be extremely devastating to your environment.
  • Kreknorite ore is your primary resource to be gathered at the crash site. The Kreknorite Chips can be used to craft a very strong set of armor that grants you complete immunity to fire/lava when wearing the complete set. You can also craft a decently strong sword with Fire Aspect.
  • The crash site could also be used to gather glowstone and nether brick without going to the nether. It also allows you to travel to the nether without getting a diamond pick for obsidian gathering.

Falling Meteors Mod Features 4

Unknown Meteor:

  • The Unknown Meteor is the rarest meteor in the mod. This is mostly due to the wealth of resources it provides. It may seem small at first, but it holds so much more to be seen. The shell of the meteor is comprised of ores from the main three meteors (Meteorite, Frezarite, and Kreknorite). On the center edges, there are glowstone blocks. The real amazing part is in the center. In the center of the meteor holds a chest which holds various rare (and some common) items. You can get any thing from Meteorite Armor to Diamonds!
  • Note that when blocked by a meteor shield, it still has a chance to give one or two items from its chest.

Falling Meteors Mod Features 5

Kitty Comet:

  • Kitty Comets can be extremely rare in earlier versions of the mod, but with the introduction of Comets they are slightly more frequent (at least when they are by themselves). There is a one percent chance (default setting) that hundreds of Kitty Comets can come down at once. Be sure to have a Meteor Shield setup to prevent them from damaging your environment when that happens.
  • Kitty Comets leave behind a Comet Kitty, which are adorable little things with space helmets on their heads. They are stronger than ocelots, keep away alien creepers, and are immune to fire. They can also breed with ocelots and their own kind to birth more Comet Kitties.

Meteor Shield

  • The Meteor Shield is quite possibly the most important block from this mod. Not only does it protect your land from a meteor crashing down on it, it also collects some of the materials from the meteor it destroyed. It also is used to help track the appearance of comets in the atmosphere.
  • The strength of your Meteor Shield is determined by its power level. The highest power level you can have is 5. To increase your power level, you must insert Red Meteor Gems into the shield. The higher the power level, the more land the shield protects. Power level does not determine if a meteor can be blocked or not. All types of meteors at any size will be blocked by the shield no matter the power level.
  • You can test your land for protection with a Protected Land Test Torch.

Freezer

  • The Freezer is a machine block that will freeze certain items. Its main function is to craft Frozen Iron, but that’s only the start of its functionality. It can create ice, packed ice, obsidian, and Slippery Blocks. It requires Frezarite Crystals (Ice and Packed Ice also works) as fuel. The Freezer can hold any liquid (including other mods’ liquids). It will hold up to 10 buckets worth.

Meteor Timer

The purpose of this block is to tell you when a meteor is going to crash. It does not tell you where, but it will tell you when. It conveys this information through redstone using two different modes:

  • Power Mode
  • Quick Mode

You can tell which mode a Meteor Timer is set on by either right-clicking on the block or by simply looking at the block. Right-clicking on the block will change the mode.

  • Power Mode: Power mode will output a redstone signal with a strength based on how soon a meteor is to crash into the world. The sooner a meteor is to crash, the stronger the signal. The max length of the signal is 15 blocks (normal max length of a redstone signal). A practical use of this mode would be to setup an array of redstone lamps. Once all lamps are lit, then you know a meteor is about to crash. A quick example of this is in the video on the right.
  • Quick Mode: Quick mode will simply output a redstone signal when a meteor is just about to crash.

Meteorite ore

  • Meteorite ore is a ore that you can find in your minecraft world if you can’t find any Meteorite Crash Sites. When you mine the meteorite ore, unlike when you mine a meteorite block you will not have a chance to find any Alien Creepers inside the meteorite ore.
  • The meteorite ore drops a Meteorite Chip, amount dropped increased by the Fortune enchantment.

Protected Land Tester

  • The Protected Land Tester is a ‘Green Torch’ that acts as an indicator light, similar to a redstone torch but not putting out any redstone power. If the Protected Land Tester is placed within the protective radius of a Meteor Shield, it will light up. If it is not within a shield’s protective radius, it will not light up. The Protected Land Tester cannot be re-used as it is a one-time use, so when you break it, nothing will be dropped.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 9

Frozen Iron Block

  • The Frozen Iron Block is created by placing 9 Frozen Iron in a crafting table.
  • The only useful things a Frozen Iron Block can do is either keep Frozen Iron in a compact block or you can use it as a decoration. It can also be used to build beacon bases.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 10

Block of Red Meteor Gem

  • The Block of Red Meteor Gem is a block that is crafted by placing 9 Red Meteor Gem in a crafting table. The Block of Red Meteor Gem has the same pattern as an Emerald Block but it is red.
  • It can be used for decoration or simply it can be used to keep Red Meteor Gems in a compact block. It can also be used to build beacon bases (although it would be very expensive to do so).

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 11

Kreknorite Block

  • The Kreknorite Block is a block that is crafted by placing 9 Kreknorite Ingots in a crafting table. The Kreknorite block is red in colour and is a different design to any of the vanilla items (unmodded minecraft items).
  • The only things that a Kreknorite Block are useful for are storing Kreknorite Ingots and as a decoration block. It can also be used to build beacon bases.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 12

Meteorite Block

  • The Meteorite Block is simply a decorative/storage block. It is also used in crafting Meteor Summoners and the Meteor Timer. It can also be used to build bases for beacons.

Meteorite Ingot

  • This ingot is used in a lot of the crafting recipes in this mod. Gather the necessary Meteorite Chips from Meteorite Meteors.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 14

Meteorite Armor

  • Meteorite Armor is perhaps the easiest armor to craft from the mod. The armor is crafted from Meteorite Ingots.
  • Each piece of armor comes pre-enchanted with Magnetization 1. The enchantment level does not stack with each piece of armor. The effect takes the highest enchantment level available from any piece of armor. So wearing multiple pieces of Magnetized armor does not increase the power of the Magnetization. (Friendly Tip: Craft two pieces of armor for the enchantment. Then use an anvil to combine the pieces of armor for a higher enchantment level.)

Magnetization Controller

  • The Magnetization Controller is a belt that you can wear that gives you the ability to toggle the Magnetization effect. Once equipped in the Baubles UI belt slot, you can press the toggle key (default is the ‘y’ key) to toggle the ability. This item is useful for when your inventory is full and you have items floating all around you. You simply press the toggle key and they drop to the ground like normal.
  • The controller comes pre-enchanted with Magnetization 3 so you don’t need any other Magnetized tools or armor to still have the Magnetization effect.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 19

Meteorite Tools

Meteorite Tools are the easiest tools to create in this mod. The only special ability of these tools is that they come pre-enchanted with Magnetization 1. The Magnetization effect only works while the tool is in your hand.

Meteorite Chip

  • This essential material is from a Meteorite Meteor. You can use this chip to make Meteorite Ingots.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 23

Magnetic Field Disruptor

  • This item is simply used to craft the Magnetization Controller. It helps balance the cost of crafting the controller for how powerful it is.

Usage

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 25

Frozen Iron

  • Frozen Iron is created by the Freezer. It is used to craft all the Frezarite Armor and Tools.

Falling Meteors Mod Crafting Recipes 26

Frezarite Armor

  • Frezarite Armor is possibly the coolest armor in the mod (pun intended). The primary focus of this armor set is to give the player control over water. With the various abilities of the armor, you can work faster underwater, hold your breath longer, and walk on water.
  • The Helmet comes pre-enchanted with Respiration 3, allowing the player to hold their breath longer while under water.
  • The Chest comes pre-enchanted with Aqua Affinity 1, making your tools work faster under water.
  • The Leggings and Boots come pre-enchanted with Cold Touch 1. This is the ability that lets the player walk on water by freezing the water beneath him/her while walking. The ability does not work while under water. Note that the enchantment level stacks with your other armor. So having both the boots and leggings gives you Cold Touch 2.

Frezarite Crystal

  • The Frezarite Crystal is obtained from a Frezarite Meteor crash site. It is used to both craft the Freezer and fuel it. One Frezarite Crystal will provide enough fuel to craft 8 items in the Freezer (similar to coal in a vanilla furnace). Note that it is not the only kind of fuel available for the Freezer though.
