Portal Gun Mod – Minecraft 1.9, 1.8, and 1.7.2

Portal Gun Mod – With this mod, you can now use portals (Just like in Portal) in Minecraft!

Overview of this Mod

The Portal Gun mod is a mod that adds “Portal” style portals into Minecraft. You know, you shoot an orange portal here, and a blue portal over there. Afterwards, you can jump into the orange portal and teleport to the blue portal. Essentially, this mod allows you to get from point A to point B quickly by teleporting, but allows you to do so in style. However, there are a few other things this mod has to offer, allowing you to make some pretty nice puzzles that make you think! Let’s get into the few other additions this mod has in store.

Items this Mod Adds

Here’s the list of items this mod adds into the game:

Default Portal Gun:

Mixing Lapis Lazuli and Redstone produces the substance below:

With the portal gun, you can:

  • Use portals to travel the Minecraft world.
  • Press “G” to change the color of the portal being fired.
  • Press “R” to erase all the portals you placed.

Single Colored Portal Guns

Changing the crafting recipe for the substance by adding one more redstone or lapiz lazuli can determine the color of the Portal Gun:

With a single colored gun, you can:

  • Make more challenging puzzles if you are a map maker.
  • Grab the other version of the single colored portal gun and merge it into a single default portal gun.

Co-op Portal Guns

With the co-op portal guns, you can now make puzzles that require two people to finish the puzzle!

With the Co-op Portal Guns, you can:

  • Add dye to the default portal gun to turn it into a Co-op gun.
  • Play on puzzles with your friend.
  • Re-enact the “Portal 2″ co-op maps.

Not much to say here, but it allows you to have a separate set of portals:

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
