Vanilla Traps (v. 2.1)

This add-on is inspired by the mod Trapcraft for Minecraft Java.

Vanilla Traps is an add-on that adds new items and blocks for the elaboration of more advanced traps within the world of Minecraft. These traps can be used to catch mobs and players.

This Add-on adds the following items:

Fake grass

(3 tall grass, 3 sticks)

  1. The fake grass has the characteristic that, upon detecting a mob, player or item above it, the block will break
  2. If there is nothing underneath the block, what is above may be damaged by falling
  3. By crafting the block you will have 3 of these

Igniter block

(5 cobblestone, 3 netherrack, 1 redstone)

  1. This block has the characteristic that, when a mob, entity or object falls on top of the block, a fire will appear that will not go out until there is nothing above

Soul igniter

(5 cobblestone, 3 soul soil, 1 redstone)

  1. This block is similar to the igniter. When a mob, player, or item is on top of the block, this block will create the new soul fire, which deals twice as much damage as normal fire. 

Fan block

(4 planks, 4 cobblestone, 1 redstone)

  1. This block has the characteristic that, when a mob or player stands on the block, they will begin to levitate until they move away from the block.
  2. A characteristic of this block is that, depending on the height you are in, the levitation effect will be affected (This only covers up to 5 blocks tall).


(4 iron ingots, 4 sticks, 1 redstone)

  1. The Holo-Spikes are an item that will allow you to place the normal spikes. To place these holo-spikes what you have to do is use the item (as if you were consuming it), this will make spikes appear 

  2. When these spikes are placed you will have other different colored spikes in the inventory, all you have to do is give the Place option (in win10 is left click) and will place the spikes

Features of the Spikes:

  • Make 4 damage
  • withstands 10 blows with the normal hand
  • Can't be moved

This addon is impressive!, tried using this on a village raid, it seems to fend them off and gives more villagers time to escape, good job on making this Addon!
