More Upgrade Packs

Upgrade your upgrade packs so you can have even higher stats!

Upgrade your upgrade packs so you can have even higher stats!
Affected stats are health and breath.

Higher stats, whaaaa?

The original upgrade_packs mod by Krock added four slots to the players inventory which they were able to fill with either +10 Health or +5 Breath each.
Using only that mod a player could have up to +40HP or +20 Breath.
I however thought that this wouldn't be enough for some reason.

So I've added more packs.

Introducing:

+20HP

+30HP

+40HP

+50HP

as well as

+10 Breath

+15 Breath

+20 Breath

That's all fine and dandy but how do you even craft them?

In order to craft one of these packs you take the previous level and surround it with the right items in order to upgrade the upgrade pack.

+10HP (from the original upgrade_packs mod by Krock)

To craft a +10HP upgrade pack, you'll need:
4 copper ingots
4 mese crystals
1 glass bottle

Arrange it like this:

Put copper ingots into the four corners of the crafting grid. Put an empty glass bottle into the middle spot. Fill in the rest with mese crystals.

Last but not least: Installation and dependencies

Installation of a mod must not be hard. Simply head into your minetest 5.0+ game and go to the Content tab. Tap on browse online content and wait for it to load up the available mod list. Using the search bar you have to make sure to install these mods:

upgrade_packs

the base that brings the core functionality. Must-have for this mod.

mtg_plus

optionally used for the +50HP upgrade pack to make it harder to craft.

awards

if you'd like to be rewarded by a popup for your efforts.

more_up_packs

this mod.

Make sure the mods are enabled on your world! Otherwise they won't do anything but sit around unused.

Alternatively download the individual mods from their respective pages, extract their .zip files, maybe rename them accordingly, and move them to your mods folder.

Thank you for showing interest in my silly little mod

Yours sincerely,
