Ever had a time where you wish you could use an elevator instead of stairs? Pistons too complicated? Well, this mod is for you then!
Elevator Mod – What is it?
As the name states, this mod is a mod that adds elevators in Minecraft. This mod is pretty useful if you don’t feel like climbing up stairs, or if you want to make your house fancy. The best part is, you don’t need to know much about redstone, unlike making a piston elevator, like below:
Also, as seen in the video, piston elevators are bulky and huge. With this mod, you can cut the size of making elevators drastically.
Features of the Elevator Mod
Here are some features this mod has to offer:
- Compact, only requires a small amount of space.
- No redstone knowledge required.
- Compatible with most mods.
- With a small amount of redstone knowledge, you can “call” the elevator, meaning you can make the elevator come to your floor.
- Right click the top to make the elevator go up.
- Right click the bottom to make the elevator go down.
- Right click the same direction the elevator is going to make it stop.
That’s most of the features this mod has!
