Mandala

From Gamemode 4
Jump to: navigation, search

The Mandala and dimension travel in Gamemode 4D is made possible by a plugin created by MatrixTunnel with the help of SpiderRobotMan.

Details[edit | edit source]

When first joining the Gamemode 4D server, players will have a book titled "Dearest Audrey." In this book, the author explains to Audrey that he has discovered a "a new method of traveling that will take us far from home." The last page of the book is a mysterious note with the crafting recipe of the Mandala.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The Mandala is crafted in a normal crafting table with 6 pieces of flint and any dye in the center.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Mandala is used to travel across dimensions in Gamemode 4D. To use it, there are specific places that allow teleportation to specific dimensions. These teleport locations are called links. When players are at a Link Location, colored smoke particles will appear. A yellow message will appear in the action bar: "Right click to teleport". Sometimes there is more than one link available at a location. In that case, the player must click the particle with the correct corresponding color to teleport to the desired dimension.

Technical Information[edit | edit source]

Teleporting via the Mandala is 1:1 in the x and z directions. That means players will be teleported to the same coordinates when they cross dimensions. The Mandala will place players in a viable spot, adjusting the Y value of the teleport if needed. If the Mandala cannot find a viable spot, you will be teleported to a nearby area.

Discovering links can be done usually by going to extreme Y values. Once a player has discovered a link, the travel conditions change to be less extreme. e.g. when unlocking the link to Upper Caves, a player has to go to the very bottom of the Overworld at Y=40, but after that, they only need to go below Y=50.

Teleportation Limitations[edit | edit source]

The player will not be placed on top of blocks which can potentially damage them. The list of blacklisted blocks include:

  • Air
  • Buttons
  • Cactus
  • Fences
  • Fence gates
  • Fire
  • Ladders
  • Lava
  • Magma Blocks
  • Pressure plates
  • Signs
  • String
  • Torches
  • Trapdoors
  • Water
