Note: I am now back in school, which means my available free time for modding has been significantly decreased. I will not port my mods to Forge, but my mod licenses are open, which allows you to do it yourself without permission. Please keep this in mind when asking for version updates. If you have issues, post them on this project's GitHub issue tracker. Thanks!
Vanilla Hammers adds in a ton of new Hammer items, which mine out a 3x3 area in front of the player. Very useful for large-scale excavation and mining!
Each Vanilla Hammer item is based on a vanilla material; the stats of the hammer grow as the material gets rarer. Each hammer has the same mining level as the vanilla tool counterpart, but it has more durability and is slower to use. Why use a diamond pickaxe when you can use an awesome hammer?
Make sure to explore all the fun advancements available (and the secret ones as well!). Craft a Wooden Pickaxe to unlock the tab.
To repair a hammer, place it in an anvil with its respective material type. There are config options to disable certain materials, for those who want a true vanilla experience. You can also configure how the 3x3 hitbox looks.
Vanilla Hammers requires the Fabric Loader and Fabric API to run. For a Forge variant, check out MelanX's port here. Recipes can be found in the images tab of this page. Have fun!
