Backstory / The Original Mod
Back in 2016 I made a mod for Minecraft called “Logical Drops” which tweaked some of the items that drop off animals in the game to make survival mode more realistic. For example, in vanilla Minecraft, you get 1 to 2 steaks of meat off a cow when you kill it … meaning two meals! My mod simply adjusted that to be 10-20 steaks so A) you didn’t have to kill so many cows, B) you appreciated it more when you had to and most importantly C) you won’t die so fast from starvation! Well the mod consisted of a handful of that kind of thing. So I shipped that off to mod land and it got a few downloads from other Minecraft players (40,000+). Maybe that was the same user downloading the file multiple times? Anyhow – here’s a “mod showcase” video someone did of the mod from back then:
Mod Update and New Name!
Well over the past few months I started playing Minecraft once in a while to kill time, etc and a few new ideas popped into my head on things I could add to the mod (some fan suggestions, others my own ideas). And even though I already had a couple weekend projects already going I couldn’t resist jumping back in to Minecraft mod work and tooling around w/updating my mod. Something about Minecraft mod work that is very hard to stop once you’ve started … at least for me.
Long story short this weekend I finally finished the updates – which included having to rename the mod to “LogicalCraft” since it doesn’t just adjust “drops” anymore – and I released the first build of it for other players to try – see links and few screens below. If/when anyone does a mod showcase video of it I’ll post it here.
