I started this mod on a simple idea that came to me when playing on a modded server, I wanted to create a mod like the nether. So I started modding this mod : the "Eternal Frost". This mod is a "dimension" mod, so it adds the ability to teleport to another dimension which is have called the "Eternal Frost" (Old name is the "Freezer"). In order to teleport there, nothing more simple, just craft "The flint and diamond" and create a normal nether portal but filled with ice obsidian instead of obsidian. Then use the flint and diamond to make the portal appear. In the Eternal Frost, you'll end up either underground or overworld in a beautiful world made of various blocks going from deeply frozen stone to freezing water that'll hurt you on touch.
What Does the mod actually add:
83 Blocks (Without the metadata) : Every blocks is different and some are totally awesome !
127 Items : From simple stick to epic dungeon drops.
5 Complete Toolsets : Arctite Tools, Snowbark Tools ,Crystal Tools, Frozen Cobblestone Tools and Coldsteel Tools
19 new mobs (Fury boar, Glace, Ice Cube, Ice Pig Zombie, Cold Creeper, Frostbite Spider, Scarab, Snow owl, Goat, Horned Goat, Woolly Mammoth, Yeti, 2 bosses (And one boss minion), Saber Tiger, Arctic Fox, Polar Bear, Villagers)
1 Dimension : The Eternal Frost, with a totally epic generation who goes up to layer 256 !
2 Furnaces : Ice Oven which can freeze things into Eternal Frost items, Frozen furnace which can reheat them.
Structures : Villages, 2 Epic Dungeons to conquer (With two mores to come soon), the caverns have been reworked to fit the mod.
Many generations (Icicles, Trees, Lakes, Rivers, ...)
Epic items and armors to obtain in dungeon, totally unique.
An hypothermia mechanics : Don't let your hearth grow cold.
25 new sounds and 4 new musics.
14 achievements : To make this mod challenging.
8 Biomes, on surface for an epic generation : You'll have to discover them yourself.
Some secrets to discover.
Lot of things aren't in this list ... (A humonguous list trust me, pretty impossible to write every add-ons)
Read this before playing:
As you may know, there is a new mechanic : The Hypothermia. How does it work ? Simply as the hunger one, but to replenish it STAND NEAR HEAT SOURCE (Like Fire, Torch, Heatstone).
In order to find the biomes on the screenshots, you just have to climb up to layer 180+. There is a surface ! And that's an important part of the mod.
Other mechanics :
You can find mobs more often depending on your height : More you dig down, more you'll encounter aggressive mobs. Surface is for passive mobs.
In order to be able to challenge a dungeon, you'll have to find a "dungeon block". They're not spawning naturally for lagging reason.
It's lagging !
The first time you'll enter the world (If you create a server), it'll lag for 1 or 2 minutes : That's totally normal and it won't last long ! I won't change Minecraft base class to change the entire generation logic of Minecraft and therefore the generation part is laggy.
What block, what tool?
What block (Just the stuff you use your Pick for) is succesfully mineable with what tool ? I made it here.
Every Pickaxe :
At least Frozen cobble
Frozen brick things
Frostbite spider spawner and all spawners yet to come in the Eternal frost
At least Arctite
Block of Crystal
At least Crystal
If you mine these blocks with another tool, it won't succefully drop. (But if you use Crystal tool on any blocks that need at least a frozen cobble pickaxe it'll work).
