The Lucky Blocks mod 1.19, 1.18.2 → 1.18 is especially popular in YouTube videos. This is because the lucky block has a lot of surprises hidden in it. So it can happen that it has devastating effects on your Minecraft world. Therefore, luck should always be on your side so that you only get positive effects. It’s best to try out the mod in a new world first. It would be really frustrating if your buildings would be destroyed. But this is not the only possibility for a test run. There are numerous Lucky Blocks servers, such as “blocksmc.com” or “play.lucksb.org”. These servers make it easy for you to have a battle with your friends. By the way, there are over 100 possible outcomes. They influence the gameplay and every time it’s a thrill because it’s like opening a loot box. For example, items, chests, mobs, potions and enchantments are covered.
How to use Lucky Blocks Mod
At first, the Lucky Blocks mod looks very unimpressive. However, you will soon notice that the project is incredibly complex. First, you need the lucky block that is always being mentioned. Nothing works without it. The Lucky Block can have a luck level between 100 and -100. The higher the value, the better the reward. Besides, you only get the rewards if you break down the block. This term is not appropriate for a negative result, because then you are punished and not rewarded.
The block is generated in all Minecraft dimensions, and the other blocks in the surrounding area show you how positive the result will be. A fancy temple made of quartz is of course more advantageous in the environment than just a ruin. The luck level in temples is between 50 and 100, which is why you should always hope for this building.
In contrast, the luck for ruins is between -50 and -100. It is not advisable to mine the Lucky Blocks there because you will get a bad outcome anyway. Also, there is a small chance that a Lucky Block will be generated right next to your spawn point. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Furthermore, there are three more variants in creative mode that can have a luck of 80, 0 and -80. You can get them from the inventory.
How to get a Lucky Block
However, it is quite difficult to find a Lucky Block, which is why you can also make one yourself. On average, you have to walk over 1000 blocks for one Lucky Block. Craft them is simple and does not involve any major difficulties. First, you have to search for gold in a cave and melt it into gold ingots. You also need a dispenser. You make it with a bow, a redstone dust and seven cobblestones. Now go to your crafting table and place the items as follows: In the middle is the dispenser and in the remaining fields are the gold ingots. The crafted Lucky Block has a default luck level.
Modify the luck level
You can increase luck by using more precious ores for crafting. Diamonds and emeralds can increase luck fivefold. Of course, this also works in the other direction. For example, you can put fermented spider eyes or puffer fish in the crafting table. As a result, the probability of a negative outcome is significantly increased. This makes little sense for you, but you can troll a friend on servers and realms.
Overall, there are over 15 items that affect the luck level. You use the following if you want to add a higher level. The increase in luck is written in brackets.
- Diamond block (100)
- Enchanted gold apple (100)
- Nether star (100)
- Emerald block (80)
- Gold block (60)
- Golden apple (40)
- Iron block (30)
- Diamond (12)
- Emerald (8)
- Gold ingot (6)
- Iron ingot (3)
The things from the list are not generated so often in your game world. As a result, it takes a long time until you have found a sufficient number of everything. The X-Ray mod, which immediately shows you all ores and dungeons, can help here. X-Ray will make the mining of ores at least twice as fast. Nevertheless, there are also items that lower your luck level:
- Fermented spider eye (-20)
- Pufferfish (-20)
- Poisonous Potato (-10)
- Normal spider eye (-10)
- Rotten flesh (-5)
Lucky Blocks Add-ons
Additionally, to the normal version, there are many add-ons that add new features. Altogether they have several million downloads and have even made it to their own category on Curseforge. The most popular are the packs by Tmtravlr, KristenStuffs and Crunchyqrc. Nonetheless, there is one big problem, because these add-ons are rarely updated. Fortunately, this does not affect the main project.
All in all, there are a lot of Lucky Blocks add-ons that make all kinds of enhancements. They are only optional and do not have to be installed. The classic basic version is also very extensive, which is why we personally have only played with this for years.
If you like programming yourself, you can take a look at the Lucky Blocks Docs. These documents contain all the important information you need to create your own add-on. However, this is something for advanced programmers. Beginners should first try to customize a Lucky Block with the help of a command block.
