Packing Tape

Attention Fabric users: This is a Forge mod, it has always been and will always be. If I ever port it to Fabric, which I have no current plans to do, it will be as a fully separate project, and it will be clearly indicated.

Starting with v0.3.5, the following TEs are blacklisted by default:

  • Command Blocks: Security concern: moving command blocks may allow things to happen that shouldn't happen.
  • End Portal blocks: Security/gameplay concern: Moving end portal blocks could cause issues.
  • Mob Spawners: Balance concern: moving block spawners can be cheaty and should be reserved to hard-to-obtain methods.
  • Player Skulls: They don't have an ItemBlock form, and can be moved away easily regardless, so no point.
  • Banners, Comparators, Daylight sensors, Pistons, Note blocks, Beds, Enchantment Tables: No point packing them.
  • Signs: No point in packing them and it may also be a security concern.

How to Use

Craft the tape with string, paper and slime balls in any crafting grid (shapeless).

Right-click with the tape on a block with TileEntity (chests, machines, ...) to pack.

Harvest the box to carry it around, and place it in its target location.

Right-click on a packed block to unpack.

Note: Sneaking while placing the block will disable the rotation system while unboxing!

Allowing the tape to pack mob spawners

Add the mob spawner tile entity class to the whitelist section of the config file:

tileentities {
    S:blacklist <
    S:whitelist <

Can I use this in <X>?

Yes. Unless <X>'s license is incompatible with this mod's, which is unlikely.
