Mine & Blade: Battlegear 2 Mod for Minecraft 1.5.2 is nothing but a reformation of the widely held combat mod for minecraft presently in development. The mod focuses on
- Providing players with interesting and balanced combat features, including:
- New weapons
- Dual wielding of weapons
- A shielding mechanic
- An extremally high level of customisation for a select number of items
- Opensource, meaning anyone is free to add to the code base
Mine & Blade: Battlegear 2 introduces a unique heraldry system, allowing the player a great deal of customization of select items. The Heraldic Items are designed and created in a new GUI. When placed in a crafting grid with a compatible item, the item will take on aspects of the heraldic item. This may range from taking one or two colours to elaborate designs.
The GUI is currently bound to the ‘P’ Key. Below is an image of the GUI screen
Currently only the 5 default swords and the knight’s armour can be customised. Below is an image of a small selection of the many customised swords.
Although the waraxe does less damage to unarmoured foes than the sword, it is more able to penatrate armoured foes.
Mine & Blade: Battlegear 2 introduces a new way of obtaining chainmail armour. 3 chain links can be obtained by placing 2 iron ingots in a vertical arrangement in a crafting grid. Chain links can then be used to make chainmail armour
Knight’s Armour is a new customisable armour (using the heraldry system). It offers slightly less protection than diamond armour but has a higher enchantability.
Knight’s Armour is created by placing a piece of chainmail and iron armour in a crafting grid. The resulting Kanigh’s Armour piece will have the enchantments of the iron armour (if any) and take its damage value from a combination of the chainmail and iron armours used.
Knight’s Armour can be customised using the heraldry system. Below is a small selection of the billions* of combinations available
This is not an over exaggeration, there are actually over 4 billion combinations for the chest piece alone.
