Better Muffling adds one block, the Muffling Block. This block muffles sounds nearby.

    • Except for the Master and Music category
  • Set the range to specify how big the sphere shaped area should be.
    • Minimum: 2 Blocks, Maximum default: 16 Blocks
    • The maximum block range can be specified in the config file (1.12: bettermuffling.cfg|1.14+: bettermuffling-common.toml)
  • With the private mode, only the placer of the muffling block can adjust the values and break the block.
    • Block breaking prevention only in 1.14+
  • Indicator that shows if you are in a muffled area or not.
    • Can be disabled in the config file (1.12: bettermuffling.cfg|1.14+: bettermuffling-client.toml)
  • All the sound levels as well as the range and the private mode setting will be saved on the block on breaking it.
    • To remove the saved data on the block just put it in a crafting table.
  • Advanced Muffle Block can mute or exclude specific sounds of a sound category.
  • The listen button enables the listening for specific sounds to add these to the white or black list of the advanced muffle block.
