Better Builders Wands by PortableJim

Description

I have found that Better Builder’s Wands is a great mod to have in your pack. The wands are craftable and have durability which means they can’t be abused unless someone pulls in a creative version of the wands.

The wands really shine in Sky block maps and packs because with them you no longer have to risk falling into the void while you lay row upon row of monotonous slabs and blocks to expand your platform. This same thing is also great if you just building a sweet home or castle on top of a rocky crag and need to build out over the ledge.

I’ve also found the wands allow me to build towers quiet easily and build to great heights as well. In a short bit of time you can find yourself building monster generator tower in the clouds or the home of the giant in the “Jack in the Bean Stalk” story.

Better Builder’s Wands by PortableJim is a must have for any pack.

Mod compatibility

with Extra Utilities installed:

  • In order to get the unbreakable wand, instead of a nether star, you need to use an Extra Utilities Builder’s Wand.
  • If you use the normal Builder’s Wand in the recipe your wand will only do 64 blocks at a time. You can double that by crafting 2 wands together.
  • If you use the Super Builder’s Wand in the recipe, your wand will be able to do the full number of blocks.

Modpack permission:

Ask and don’t receive – If you ask for permission to use this mod in any pack, you are not allowed to use it in any pack for 1 month. (Telling me that you are using it a pack is ok, but don’t make it a question).
