Ambience - Extras (Music Mod)

I have created this mod on top of the original Ambience mod from Vazkii because I really loved his mod but I felt that some things were missing in his mod and as he made the source code available on github I have added things to this mod just for fun and things that I found necessary for a mod that adds music to Minecraft, see below the extra blocks and the tool recipes and how to configure and use it.


Obs: This mod isn't an addon for the Ambience mod this is the entire Ambience mod with extra features, so you don't need to have the original Ambience mod in your game, and as this mod adds blocks and items to the game you have to install it in the CLIENT and SERVER sides!


This mod have all the events from original mod where you can read here and the new events below that you can add in the ambience.properties file:

Ok, Just give me the music pack:

(extract it in the root folder of you minecraft installation)


My personal music pack


For the Configurations see the wiki



To add a sound to a selected area first you need the Soundnizer tool:


Soundnizer Tool

With the Soundnizer tool you can select an area by left-clicking with the tool in your and in a block and right-clicking in another block to form a rectangular shape:


Select Area


After that enter inside the area look to the sky or get away of all other blocks and right click again to open the Creation Gui:


Create Area Screen


The name of the created area must be equal the name of the area that you have created in the ambience.properties file

Example: if in the configs you created a area.Shop=shop the name in the GUI will be: Shop.


To edif an area you have to just right click in the air with the Soundnizer tool in your hand to open the GUI

To clear the selection press Shift+Right-click


There are six blocks: 


The Song Switcher:


Song Switcher

This block changes the song being played in a region depending on the redstone signal strength, to make it work it's simple, create an region with the Soundnizer tool put the song switch anywhere inside that region and put some redstone signal to it to power the region with energy for it to play the different songs, so you can setup up to 15 diferent songs to be played in the region by setting the area redstone signal in the config file like that:




obs.: it's perfect for creating mini-games with themed musics 😁


The Alarm:



It's an Alarm that you can configure any sounds to be played on it and it blinks light when turned on, also it works with SEUS PTGI shader, you have only to edit the line of code bellow where it says "block.50=minecraft:torch" in the block.properties inside the shaderpack:


block.50=minecraft:torch ambience:alarm_lit_white ambience:alarm_lit_red ambience:alarm_lit_orange ambience:alarm_lit_yellow ambience:alarm_lit_lime ambience:alarm_lit_green ambience:alarm_lit_cyan ambience:alarm_lit_lightblue ambience:alarm_lit_blue ambience:alarm_lit_purple ambience:alarm_lit_magenta ambience:alarm_lit_pink ambience:alarm_lit_brown


The speaker




A block that plays a sound defined by you, to define a sound rightclick on it with the Soundnizer tool in your hand and to play it activate the speaker use a redstone signal.


How To add sounds to the Speaker:

You have to add the sounds as a resource pack in the minecraft folder, and edit the sounds.json to add your sound, and inside the game you have to go to ResourcePacks and add the AmbienceSounds as a resource as you would do with a normal texture pack

Here are the basic resource pack with a few sounds added as an example:


 Ambience Resource Pack

Note: You must extract it for it to work and is already included in the My personal music pack above) 


The Ocarina


The legend says that this ocarina was left forgotten on this world by a great hero and if played correctly it do powerful things, it can't be crafted only found in chests.

There are 7 know songs that you can play (the buttons for playing the songs can be configurated in the ambience.properties:




The Horn from the Gods


The horn is a very powerful item that causes fear in the hearts of your enemies and encourages your allies in the battle field.


Cinematic Transitions


Cinematic Transitions


You can create images to show up when you enter a structure or a custom created region, to do so you must put an image inside the AmbienceSounds.zip resource pack inside the "assets\ambience\textures\transitions" and the file name must be the same name of the structure or the createdarea all in lowercase.
