Little Helpers Mod is an automation mod that navybofus has put my own “spin” on. The “spin” is that if a vanilla task in Minecraft requires items, then so will this mod’s automation process. Further, this means that if a tool is required for the mod’s “LittleHelper” to function, the tool is also damaged as it would if you were to actually carry out the task manually. So, what is the purpose of this “spin”? He finds that adding a diamond tool to the recipe of an automation block, over time, adds a cheating aspect to the game. Mods are what they are and some, even a few of my own, do add cheating characteristics. This mod tries to add automation by cutting out the time required to do a task, but does not cut out any materials that would be consumed.
Note: By itself, this mod cannot create full-time automation without the player’s occasional input. This is on purpose. Also, if a mod task requires an item that isn’t normally required by vanilla Minecraft, it is intentional for balance.
Visit the original mod thread here for all info.
So far, this mod adds automation to crop farming including Wheat, Carrots, Potatoes, Netherwart, Pumpkins, and Melons. The mod added tree farming that will collect all vanilla tree logs and their saplings. The last addition is animal breeding. The mod can breed Sheep, Cows, Mooshroom, Pigs and Chickens.
These are the blocks that do the tasks while you’re out an about. A tool and item requirement table will be provided below for easy reference.
Like all the mod’s blocks, the name hints to the task the block will carry out. In this instance the Fisher will fish for the player. However, this block differs from the rest as it will produce fish faster depending on the number of two-deep pools of water in it’s immediate area (maximum of 9)
This block will plant and harvest the vanilla “small” crops like Wheat, Carrots, Potatoes and Nether Wart.
This block will plant and harvest the vanilla “big” crops like Pumpkins and Melons.
This block plants Saplings. Yep, that’s it.
Ah, a reason for the Sapling Planter. This block will detect trees in a 9×9 area of which it’s “pointing” to harvest.
This block detects a pair of eligible (see mod description above) Animals in a 5×5 area of which it’s pointing to feed and subsequently breed.
