Soul Magic

Do you ever think it's silly that mob spawners and spawn eggs exist in the game, but are not obtainable in survival mode? Or do you get annoyed that mods that make them craftable usually make them really easy to make? I think it's time that changes. Soul Magic adds some difficult, but not impossible methods of getting spawn eggs and mob spawners in survival mode.

This mod starts off with Soul Silver, a new ore found in the Nether. Once you have a bunch of it, you can craft it into the Soul Infuser.

Soul Infuser

The Soul Infuser is the main thing in this mod. It's a multiblock structure, made up of a Soul Infuser Core, and four Pedestals (recipes are in the recipe book)

Once you have a Soul Infuser, make some Soul Jars. To make them, right-click/interact on the Soul Infuser Core using a Glass Bottle, and then a Soul Silver Ingot. This will give you an empty Soul Jar.

Souls

If you venture out into a Soul Sand Valley in the Nether, you will find one of these flying creatures, which you can catch in your Soul Jar by right-clicking/interacting on them. They are used as the basis for creating spawn eggs.

To make a spawn egg, place a Soul Spark on each Pedestal on the Soul Infuser. Soul Sparks are rare drops from most hostile mobs. Right-click/interact on the Soul Infuser Core with the Soul Jar, and then right-click/interact using a matching amber (a new ore) or mandrake (a new plant). If you did it correctly, you will get a random spawn egg.

This is just the beginning for this mod, for all the features, check out my new website.

They can be found in nether fortress or end city loot chests.

The cool thing would be to be able to run around the world to find the spawner and with its complement and be able to collect them and place them wherever you want, and with the items to collect souls we can mutate the monster generator, I think that would make this addons perfect.

That's not really possible in bedrock edition right now, but it would be neat.

Cool mod but the soul meal is functioning as the random spawn egg. When used on the ground a random mob is spawned. The actual random spawn egg does not function. Rad ideas and nice execution other than that.

That's the intended behavior. The "Random Spawn Egg" item is a placeholder item that is not actually used in game and doesn't do anything. Soul Meal is supposed to spawn random mobs.
