Special Features

  • Tool Fire - Lights flammable nodes on fire when rightclicked. If node has set on_ignite then that function will be run instead of the fire being placed

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Good mod and API!

    Makes it very useful if you don't want to use the furnace as well as mining faster.
    The API looks very well-built and documented as well.

  • A nice mod if you need more uses for lava

    The lava ingots can be used for all sorts of recipes in other mods, providing a great use for lava; as noted, stuff dug with lava tools is put in your inventory as the smelted item (digging cobble, for example, yields stone), and lava tools can light players/nodes on fire (seems a little OP, but definitely realistic :)), so the tools actually serve a purpose!

    I have experimented with setups to farm lava ingots the fastest and have settled on one that uses pipeworks: 4 advanced vacuuming tube segments with max range (8) are put on the sides of an autocrafter which is configured to craft lava orbs and is sitting in a lava lake. You will only need to fill the autocrafter with maybe a few stacks of mese crystals, and then fill your inventory with random items. The trick is to have your inventory full, so the buckets drop after collecting the lava, which are then vacuumed and processed by the autocrafter. The empty buckets are then found in the output slots of the autocrafter, so you can do it over again. After you've gathered all the lava you can in that spot, you can move to a new lava lake.

  • Nice

    Nice. The lava stuff is cool honnestly. Lot of languages supports, game support, that's great.

    Good API too.

    I recommend.

  • The lavastuff's as better cool armor and tools to handle rather diamonds or mitril

    For most players.. the best (due is most common on all minetest forks and related games) armor is the Diamond one...

    The lavastuff mod does not provide a "most powerfully" or "best hard to break" one, it just added two simple but great things:

    1. Lava armors, tools and stuffs one each action will cook, or fired the target! quick and very helpfull!
    2. Lava armos, tools and stuffs are almost as so durable as Diamond ones.. but with nice red coloring

    This two reasons are enought for! no more lines to said!


    NOTE and also i recently send backguard compatibility for all minetest version since 0.4.15 so it's a great mod to use!

  • Fantastic mod, 10/10 would recommend as an unbiased user

    Also supports more than just MTG
