Black Holes Addon (Bug Fixes and Small Changes!)

Black Holes are the most extreme things in the universe, capable of ripping planets apart and trapping light with no way to escape. If you are anything like me, you are probably endlessly fascinated by the way Black Holes work, and now you can have them in Minecraft Bedrock Edition too! Let's get you started with the basics.

Select version for changelog:

Changelog
  • Fixed bugs!

Destroying White Holes no longer occasionally plays the player death sound.

Particles and Antiparticles should (?) now reliably drop from TNT explosions.

The collision boxes of Black Holes now match their visible boundary.

"Schwarzschild" is now spelt correctly in the guide.

  • Changed some back-end stuff to help me out!

Removed unused files for simplification.

How do i place it?

Please make the black hole suck players in more and allow it to grow and consume blocks please. Thank you! Keep up the Great work!

Forgot to rate.

Could you also make it possible to escape the black hole's pull?

Great..! NICE Butt Hole Addon

*Black Hole sorry. 🙏🏼 Typo error

Why cant i craft the black hole

Make sure you have all experimental features enabled on the world, you have both the behaviour pack AND the resource pack applied, and that you are crafting with 1 nether star and 8 iron blocks in the crafting table, not the inventory. The iron blocks must be separated in the grid, not together in a stack.

Ooooooooh I really love all the educational stuff with this one. I'd love to see more hypotheticals like strange matter, anti-matter galaxies, and my personal favorite, "baby universes". This would fit with the whole black hole thing, and if you haven't heard of it (though I suspect you have) it basically suggests that super dense matter in the middle of a black hole kind of bounces back and makes a new universe with slightly different laws of physics. If you could do like a new dimension or something and make it give constant movement-altering effects, that'd be dope. Then again, the coding for any of the things I listed would be monstrous, so maybe keep on doing what you do best.

Oh, and props to you for making the most balanced teleportation system on mcpedl, even if it just started as a cool concept.
1
Thank you very much! Entities are a lifesaver, especially with the tick_world component!
1
All of those things will probably be very difficult, but I’ll give them some thought. Next update will be a bug fix update probably.

Whoops, missed half a sentence in the changelog lmao. What an idiot!

Thanks for replying on my comment!

I love this addon, I think you did really great and I enjoy using it for stupid ideas I get in creative words, I do have a couple suggestions tho such as being able to use the blackhole as a power source or it being able to speed up stuff around it like furnace or crop growth speed
1
I don't think that last one is possible, but I'll see if I can make it power things in a future update. It's not very high up on my priority list at the moment though :)
1
You should try to make a space map or addon that adds a new dimension which would be space and have all the planets and maybe it could be like a simulator
1
I would love to, except you can’t add new dimensions in just yet. I plan to make the End the home for the black holes.
1
Thanks for the kind words, folks! Please note that I will be frequently developing this with the intent of adding many of the features suggested in the wonderful comments, including many different sizes which can slowly progress to the next size up as they swallow more entities!
1
The mod is very good but you can make the black hole absorb everything that is around it such as blocks, mobs, items and that it grows little by little and increases its strength
1
That is something I plan to do in the future, but it won't be soon. I also want to maintain a balance between vanilla-style and accurate, which might render that sort of thing too complicated to worry about.
1
The fact that you tried to keep it as close to the real science as possible and even wrote that big description is very appealing to me. Good luck with your future projects!
1
This is kind of similar to the Black Hole I made for my magic addon (public release isn't done yet)

Your current gravitation system is decent, and I love the way this works mechanically, but I am curious if you would be interested in collaborating on this sort of thing?
My current system is.. uh... a bit more aggressive, to say the least.

If you are interested in trying to collab, let me know
1
I am very busy, but I'm flattered you asked! Please message me on Discord: voidredstone#3664.

This addon is great! But can you make it suck in blocks and slowly pull you in and if your closer to it it will pull you in faster and do that with items and mobs and make it grow when it sucks in something please? :)
1
I plan to do all of those things eventually! The only downside is that for smooth gravitational movement it will probably require either entities or scripting, neither of which I am very confident with.
1
i love Minecraft, and I love space! I will admit that I may be semi-young but I was intrigued in how you explained black holes, which I have always been fascinated by and I honestly cant wait to try this addon! :3

I'm glad you are as passionate about them as I am!
