Vanilla Hammers is a 1.14 mod for Fabric. It 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?
External mod compatibility:
To repair a hammer, place it in an anvil with its respective material type. You can also enchant them! 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. Prismarine & Fiery have special particles!
Install DynaGear to get a ton of hammers based on Cotton Resources (& others if you want to make your own!).
Vanilla Hammers requires the Fabric Loader and Fabric API to run. I do not plan on porting to Forge. Have fun!
