Player placed Block gravity. The anti sky base mod idea.
I had this idea about a way to prevent players from making sky bases in hardcore modpacks so they need to focus on building defenses in underground bases or over ground bases. Especially in packs that have features like random invasions and stuff where mobs can break into player bases and stuff.
So I was thinking if there was a mod that could make it so blocks placed by players are affected by gravity or at least certain listed blocks are it would make it harder to start a sky base from things like dirt planks or fences etc. So players would need to build creative bases over ground instead of one big long platform in the sky where mobs never ever can get to. So they would if they really want to make a sky base have to make it from the few blocks that aren’t on the list like hard to make machines or blocks that need to be gravity unaffected for certain structures etc.
And even building bases would be a bit more structural challenging like not being able to stack blocks to high ceilings and roofs need to be well thought out, or special roof blocks that can be used to make a roof out of but if you walk on it, it would break so not usable for floating platforms.
I know there where similar mods like that in 1.7.10 and back but sadly I didn’t find any good ones for that in 1.12.2
I think by keeping it to player placed blocks it’s a good way to still keep players to use natural structures or not get randomly caved in when block updating a wall in a cave or so.
I would really love to see such a mod. So if anyone needs an idea for a mod here you go.
