NOTE: In case I am no longer able to log in here after Twitch's forced account merging over at the MinecraftForums, updates to and discussion of this mod will continue on PlanetMinecraft.

Prepare yourself for THE ultimate Zelda mod for Minecraft! Including nearly every Zelda item, fully functional just like in the games, sword skills such as Link's Spin Attack, mobs, dungeons, several quests, and more. If you ever enjoyed a Zelda game, then you will certainly love this mod. If, on the other hand, you simply want to add some extra spice to Minecraft's combat system without adding tons of items and other things, I recommend you check out my standalone combat enhancement mod, Dynamic Sword Skills.

Be sure to check out AntiqueAtlas by Hunternif for more Quest-related sneak-peeks, as well as to use alongside ZSS to view Boss Dungeon locations on your Antique Map!

Also make sure to check out the Official ZSS Addon by TheRedMajora! The addon aims to add in everything from Zelda that didn't make it into the main mod, such as every single sword ever appearing in Zelda!

MOD INFORMATION

This section has moved! All item, block, mob, and skill descriptions, along with everything else (configuration settings, secrets, etc.) have been bundled into a much more presentable and, most importantly, not space-limited PDF.

Get the Official ZSS Manual now! The manual will be updated regularly and stamped with a new date - be sure to check the change log to see if anything has changed in the manual.

 F.A.Q. - Please read me before asking questions!

Q: Help, your mod crashed my game!
A: Oops! First, READ the mod description carefully, and then answer the following questions:

1. Did you install the correct version of the mod?
2. Did you install the correct version of Forge?
3. Did you install the correct versions of OTHER mods?

If you can answer YES to all three questions, then please kindly post your full crash report inside of [ spoiler ] tags, along with a detailed description of what you were doing when the game crashed. The more information you can give me, the more likely I will be able to fix your problem.

Q: Your mod crashes with Battlegear2!!!
A: No, it doesn't - you forgot to install the correct versions of both mods. Please read the download description and change log carefully.

 

Q: Why can't I use skills with Tinker's Construct (or other mod) weapons!
A: You can, but you may need to add them to the Weapon Registry. Please see the section on Commands in the ZSS Manual.

 

Q: Why aren't the villager trades working with Minecraft Comes Alive (MCA) ?
A: In order to do what they do, MCA replaces all vanilla villagers with their own class, but this means that other mods which rely on the vanilla class to do things (such as trade) have a high chance of not working. This is one of those cases.


Q: Will you add [x] sword?
A: No. The swords currently available have a nice progression from weak to strong, and I am not interested in adding another sword that has basically the same stats as one that already exists just for the sake of variety. The Official ZSS Addon, however, adds nearly all of the swords not included in the main mod.


Q: Can you please add { insert whatever } ?
A:
a. Is {whatever} in a Zelda game? I have already considered it.
b. Is {whatever} NOT in a Zelda game? Then no, I won't add it.

If you answered 'a' and still want to ask, either provide details about HOW and WHY it should be implemented, otherwise I will ignore you.

 

Q: The transformation masks (e.g. Deku Mask) are supposed to change the player model!!!
A: I know, but it is much more difficult than one would think, not to mention it would likely conflict with every other mod that wants to do something with the player model. At best, I may be able to manage a skin change, but it's not a high priority for me.


Q: Will you ever add more elaborate dungeons?
A: No. However, I encourage people to use the mod in Adventure Maps, where it is quite feasible to replicate not only the form of Zelda dungeons, but also to add the many intricate puzzles and quests that should accompany each dungeon.

Q: But you can just use schematics to add dungeons, will you do that?
A: No. Unless playing an Adventure Map, I prefer the dungeons to be slightly randomized to better fit the randomness of the Minecraft world; schematics cannot be randomized when added without converting them to Java, which can add tens of thousands of lines of code that I would rather not deal with, plus I just do not like working with schematics in general.

Q: What about adding dimensions?
A: Sorry, I do not have any plans at this time to add new dimensions.

Q: BOSSES!!! When will you be adding proper Zelda bosses?!?!?!
A: There are currently only two, but I'm working on more, please be patient.

Q: Your textures suck, can you make better ones?
A: Sorry, I'm not an artist. If you can do better, please submit your textures via private message and I will consider replacing the current texture with yours, but only if yours are good ;P

Q: My bombs are not blowing up the secret rooms, what is going on?!?!
A: Congratulations, you have found a secret room that requires a special item to enter! Excavate around the secret room until you find either a pair of Barrier Blocks or some kind of Peg, then use the appropriate item to open it up so you can get that treasure chest!

Q: My question was not answered here, now what?
A: Please download and read the Official ZSS Manual before asking questions about content in the mod.

RECOMMENDED MODS

The following are mods that provide features I consider complementary and should enhance your experience.

If you experience issues, try using the latest version or rolling back to a previous version depending on your situation.

Antique Atlas by Hunternif - Keep track of boss dungeons on an old-school rpg map!
Battlegear2 by GotoLink, NerdBoy, et al. - Dual-wielding, shields, awesome.
    NOTE: BG2 v1.0.10.0 adds a config option to re-enable item blocking - you MUST enable this for many ZSS items to function correctly if you play with BG2 installed.

Version Checker by Dynious - Check for the latest ZSS version right from the main menu of Minecraft!
