For Minetest 5.0 and above

How do I install this?

Smoke Signals

Signal your friends, or warn your enemies!

Colors Included

Every wool makes a different colored smoke!


This is a simple mod, that adds a craftable "Smoke Fire", with the following crafting recipe:

stick torch stick
cobble stick cobble

How to use

Once placed, simply hit the fire with any color wool and... poof, a burst of smoke emerges and rises.

Why wool?

Well, original smoke signals were done with a blanket covering the fire...

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Brilliant!

    Cool mechanic, awesome to build with. Works well in a RPG style map, and just having fun with friends. But I would like to make a recommendation: Make it also change colour if you place a wool block on top, so it can work with mesecons_piston (cool for map-making). Apart from that, amazing mod and cool mechanic!
