Blink Teleport mod for Minetest


Minetest 5.0.0+


Blink is a short distance teleport with a cooldown period, similar to a reuseable ender pearl. The further you blink, the longer the cooldown. You can also place a temporary marker that will display your destination if you were to blink. This will add a new dynamic to PvP and/or survival servers. If you blink into a player or a mob, you will find yourself directly behind them facing their back.

Right click or double tap to blink in the direction you are looking. Left click or tap and hold to show a glowing orb at the location you would blink to. If you do this twice in the same place, you will blink to that spot (see screenshots)

Blink Rune is limited uses (150 by default) and fairly easy to craft. Forever Rune is infinite uses and is more expensive to craft. Craft recipes vary depending on which game you are playing or which mods are installed.

Blink adds a few items for crafting purposes: Bone and Bone Shard. If Bonemeal is detected, that bone will be used instead. If Techpack is installed, a grinder recipe is added. If Bonemeal is not installed then there is a small chance of finding a bone when digging any type of soil.

Blink does not depend on MTG so it will work with any game including Mineclone.
