Clone this repository into the worldmods subfolder of the folder that contains your world. If it doesn't exist, then you'll need to create it.


This mod adds two items:

  1. A floating anchor node
  2. A floating anchor item

As indicated by the description, the node is not the one you should use. For general use, it's the item you want. If you try and place the item like a node (even if you're not pointing at anything), the node form will be placed at your current position.

Upon breaking, the node form will drop the item form again for you to re-use use. If you somehow end up with the node form in your inventory, simply place it normally and break it again to turn it back into the more useful item form.


In survival mode, a crafting recipe is available:

The survival recipe for crafting a floating anchor. A textual representation is detailed below.

Feedback on the balance of this recipe is appreciated, as the author does not play survival very often.
