Metroid Cubed 3 is a mod that adds in many items and mechanics from the Metroid game series, most notably the Metroid Prime Trilogy. Suit up, and prepare to fight for galactic peace!

these refills are dropped when a mob is killed. how much is dropped depends on the health and strength of the mob.
wearing any powersuit helmet gives you infinite water breathing. Additionally, if Galacticraft is installed, wearing a powersuit helmet prevents damage from lack of oxygen.
wearing any pair of powersuit boots gives you a jump boost, as well as negates fall damage.
Energy tanks can be applied to powersuit chestplates. while a full set of armor is worn, damage taken is first applied to the energy stored in the armor, and then anything left over is taken from the player’s health. Conversion is 1/2 heart of damage = 5 energy units.
the XRay visor utilizes a shader to imitate the visor from Metroid Prime. When this visor is active, certain ores will be outlined by a color, similar to an x-ray mod.
pressing ‘V’ while looking at a mob causes you to ‘lock-on’ to that mob. This causes you to always face that mob, and seeking projectiles will first target that mob. You will lose the lock-on if the mob is too far away or moves out of sight e.g. behind a wall.
A player wearing the Phazon Suit can enter hypermode by entering a pool of liquid phazon, and a player wearing a PED suit with at least 1 energy tank can enter/exit hypermode by pressing ‘R’ to expend an energy tank. While in hypermode, the power beam becomes the powerful Hyper Beam, and rapid-fires phazon beams which normally deal out a whopping 10 hearts of damage. The world becomes black-and-white, except for phazon.
If using the PED suit for hypermode:
Hypermode will automatically end after 25 seconds via the auto-vent feature.
Phazon-based damage, and liquid phazon, will corrupt your hypermode.
the large bar, called the ‘Phazon Meter’, shows how much phazon you have left for hypermode. Using the hyper beam decreases the bar. If your hypermode becomes corrupt, it will slowly fill up, and if it reaches full, you automatically die.
the gravity effect, given by the gravity/phazon suits, negates the effects of water on movement. Additionally, if Galacticraft is installed, it negates the effects of planet-specific gravity.
pressing ‘B’ opens the logbook. the logbook holds useful information about suits and powerups – obtaining a suit or powerup will unlock it’s corresponding entry in the logbook.
when inside the gunship, the logbook is replaced with the ship GUI. clicking on a planet allows you to zoom in on it, and clicking the same planet again will attempt to take you to that planet.
when not wearing a varia-enabled suit (any suit other than the basic powersuit), you will take constant damage in the nether.
When inside dark aether, and not inside a safe zone or wearing the light suit, you take constant damage. Wearing the dark suit cuts the damage by 80%.
