Dark Utilities by Darkhax

Description

Disclaimer: Contrary to the  reddit post that may have brought you here, this is not the website of the author of this mod. It was at the time a very zealous link back page because I use his mods in many of my packs. –Kreezxil (Aug 14, 2017)

Why?: Because his page at CurseForge and his attempt at a wiki was less than desirable. In the various places he has put out information about the mod he has done so in bits and bobs. He even rotates the content he exposes to the world. I decided to coagulate as much of it as possible into this page. –Kreezxil (Aug 14, 2017)

Dark Utilities is a utility mod which adds many new items and blocks which can be useful in a lot of circumstances. While the usefulness of some things may not be obvious, everything in the mod has its place. Please keep in mind that this mod requires Bookshelf as a dependency. Due to the large amount of content in the mod, it can be difficult to document everything in an easy to read and up to date way. If you use this mod, I would highly recommend Just Enough Items as well. Everything in Dark Utilities is given a description if you look through it’s uses in JEI. 

To give you a taste of what this mod has to offer, bellow are some spotlights of items and blocks in the mod. I will change them periodically to draw attention to new content. 

Blocks

Traps

  • Damage Trap – Causes instant damage to mobs that walk on it.
  • Flame Trap – Causes fire damage to mobs that walk on it.
  • Poison Trap – Causes poison damage to mobs that walk on it.
  • Slowness Trap – Causes slowness to mobs that walk on it.
  • Weakness Trap – Causes weakness effect to mobs that walk on it.
  • Wither Trap – Causes wither damage to mobs that walk on it.

Sneaky

  • Sneaky Block – A standard camouflage block. Has hardness and blast resistance of cobble. Mobs can’t spawn on it.
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    These blocks are based on existing blocks in minecraft. The key difference is that they can be changed to look like any other block. For example, a sneaky lever will act like a lever, but you can disguise it as another block.
  • Sneaky False Block – A standard camouflage block that allows mobs to move/fall through it.
  • Sneaky Level – A standard camouflage block that doubles as a lever block.
  • Sneaky  Torch – A standard camouflage block that doubles as a torch.

Other

  • Anti-Slime Block – Prevents Slimes from spawning in the same chunk as the block.
  • Block Update Detector – Produces a redstone pulse when a block update happens next to it. 
  • Ender Hopper – Sucks nearby items into the attached inventory
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    This is an upgrade to a normal hopper. When placed on an item container such as a chest, the hopper will teleport nearby items into the chest. This is very similar to the Vacuum Hoppers of old, but is much more server efficient, as it does not move items around.
  • Ender Tether – Redirects all ender teleportation within 32 blocks to the tether block.
  • Item Grate – Allows only Items to fall through the block. 
  • Mob Filter – Special filter block(s) which allow certain mobs to move through them.
  • Timer – Produces a redstone pulse on a scheduled amount of time. Amount of time can be changed via GUI.
  • Vector Plate – Pushes mobs that step on it in the direction the pad faces.
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    A basic conveyor belt which works as one might expect. When you place it down, it will have an arrow which points in the direction you are looking. When a mob steps on the plate it will be pushed in that direction. If a mob is sneaking, they will not be pushed.

Items

Potions

  • Mysterious Potion: cure – A strong saturation potion. Can also cure zombie villagers!
  • Mysterious Potion: disease – A strong hunger potion. Can also infect villagers with zombie virus.

Rings

Note: Multiple rings can be used, however two of the same type will not stack.

  • Angler Ring – Gives the player an extra Lure level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Bandit Ring – Gives the player an extra Looting level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Enchanted Ring – Increases the enchantment on player held items
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    These rings can be found in nether chests as a rare loot item. When in the offhand slot, or a baubles ring slot, they will increase the player’s level for the enchantment listed on the tooltip. For example, if you have a fire aspect ring, and a weapon with fire aspect 2, that weapon will act like it has fire aspect 3.
  • Prospector Ring – Gives the player an extra Efficiency level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Pyromancer Ring – Gives the player an extra Fire Aspect level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Ring of Fortunes – Gives the player an extra Fortune level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Ring of the Sea – Gives the player an extra Luck of the Sea level as long as it is in the inventory.
  • Titan Ring – Gives the player an additional knock back level as long as it is in the inventory.

Other 

  • Dwindle Cream – Basic Crafting ingredient.
  • Focus Sash – Prevents players from being insta-killed!
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    This item prevents 1 hit KOs. If you have full health, and are hit with an attack that would kill you, you will survive with half a heart remaining. This allows the player to survive very high drops, or give a second chance when fighting powerful mobs.
  • Null Charm – Define what gets destroyed when it is picked up
    Spoiler for xplanation default false
    Right clicking with the charm will open up a filter GUI. When you pick up any items, if they are in the filter list they will be destroyed instead of picked up. This is very useful for mining, as you can just get destroy all that extra cobble.
  • Unstable Ender Pearl – Basic crafting ingredient.
  • Wither Dust – Basic crafting ingredient. Can also be used to brew potions of decay.
