Recent Update: I have disabled this mod – we had a big crash and could not reload our world file (made a 3 hour rollback). I will investigate if this new mod caused this, before reactivating again.
Ok tonight I updated the server with the newly developed (early stage) mod from SuperLlama – a way to make runes with blocks and activate certain things.
You can make things like:
and several more abilities.
This is what SuperLlama writes about the mod:
This is a thread for my magic mod, currently known as “Runecraft,” for SMP based on the concept of pattern building and enchantable gold. Since it’s still in its alpha stage, there might be some bugs, and I’m still open to your ideas.
There are two kinds of “spells:” World spells and Tool spells. All spells are created as structures, or Runes. Basically, you arrange a pattern of blocks, then you activate the rune by right-clicking the center with a tool. Smooth stone and grass are treated like air in the rune pattern. The dimensions of a rune must be odd, so that a clear center is defined. If the center is made of air, right-click the ground directly under it.
Here is a couple of examples on the usage. First video shows Greenthumb – a way to make dirt into grass quick.
Or how about the Firepick – a way to turn ore into bars right away (like an auto furnace)

I will update the files when SuperLlama releases updates to it – seems he is pretty active *thumbs up*
This is just a test for now – if I find it causes to many problems or introduces grief methods, I might remove again.. But for now – have fun runecrafting
