IQAndreas MineCraft Fixes

A collection if my favorite fixes to MineCraft.

  • Insta-break items (such as torches and redstone) don’t damage tools.
  • Using a lava bucket in a furnace does not consume the bucket.
  • Endermen drop the blocks they are holding (such as grass and melons) when killed. This is a great way to get grass blocks without the Silk Touch enchantment.
  • Pumpkins don’t require a solid block beneath them when placed and can therefore be placed on ceilings and walls.

  • The following recepies have become shapeless:

    • Flint and steel
    • Jack-o-lanterns
    • Sticky pistons
    • Storage minecarts
    • Powered minecarts

This is a Patch, not a Mod

It will not affect your world save
No new items or blocks will be added to your maps. This means the mod can be uninstalled, reinstalled, or MineCraft upgraded (causing the patch to automatically uninstall) without any issues.

It does not require any mod APIs
This patch modifies base classes in the MineCraft source code. No mod APIs are required to use it, nor can it be modified to use a mod API rather than modifying base classes (hooks just won’t cut it!).
