Essence Powder Mod for Minecraft 1.11/1.10.2/1.9.4

To put things simply, the Essence Powder Mod allows you to use the implemented essence powder to create copies or clones of existing ores. By duplicating your ores with this powder, you can create more resources even when you’ve already run out of places to go mining. Though this shouldn’t normally happen in Minecraft, it’s a distinct possibility when playing on survival islands or skyblocks, so don’t scoff at this mod just yet. On an interesting note, the Essence Powder Mod comes with language support for German as well as English, so any Deutsch out there should be able to use it with ease.


The first thing you’ll need is a mortar and pestle to start grinding up agents for powders. You can reduce coal, iron, gold, even diamonds and other non-ore resources like leather into a basic, powdery form. Four powders of the same type will make a powder block of the corresponding type, like using coal powder to make coal powder blocks. Smelting a powder block will yield an actual resource block – like you could smelt an iron powder block, made from four iron ores, to get an iron block, yielding 9 iron ingots and definitely getting more out than you put into the process.

In this way, the Essence Powder Mod is actually kind of broken. It allows you to create a near infinite supply of resources, but only if you can find the ores to break down into powder in the first place. Some players would probably call it cheating if you used this mod, and you’ll have a hard time finding any online servers with this mod implemented. But that’s not stopping anyone from using the Essence Powder Mod during solo play when they are alone. It’s a very useful mod, but it has the potential to be a very broken mod too.

  1. This mod bricked my game.

    I’m not sure exactly what happened, but even now that I’ve deleted the mod, I still can’t play.

    I downloaded and tested out the mod on an adventure map I was working on. I closed the game and uninstalled it when I couldn’t convert the powder back into it’s respective ore, then looked over the description again, and reinstalled after realizing it was the -blocks- that need to be smelted.

    So I deleted the mod, then re-added it before I had the chance to re-launch the game.
    Then, when I finally got back into the game, I tried loading my adventure map back up.

    The game froze permanently when it got to the point in loading when it shows the % loaded, stuck ad 0%.

    I waited quite some time and it never responded.

    I used task manager to force-close the game and launched it again, this time, trying to make a new world to see if it was just that world that no longer was working, so I generated am overworld superflat.
    Same problem. Got to 0% loading progress then permanently locked up.

    I entirely removed the mod, and launched the game yet again, testing by making another new world. Same, thing.

    I don’t know what happened, but even after deleting this mod, I can no longer load worlds, nor even make new ones.

    • I managed to forget while typing, that looking at task manager, Minecraft also started taking up -all- memory and CPU usage while before it got nowhere near the numbers I was seeing.
      Out of likely unfounded paranoia, i’m going to also conduct an emergency anti-rootkit and virus scan on my machine for the strangely high memory it randomly only started eating after this started.

      The reason apart from me thinking it wasn’t working that I removed it, was sudden, frequent unexplainable lag spikes I started getting after installation, when it was working.

      • Somehow, trying one last time, days later to re-add the mod and start it made at least a void flatland load.

        Odd.. no idea what the issue was before.

    • I didn’t honestly think someone would come to a modding site to ask for a free copy of the game.

      The only way you’re going to get it, is buying it yourself.
      Only way you might get it for ‘free’, is either someone else buying it for you, or, (and I ain’t encouraging, here..) to pirate it.

      There used to be a free version of Minecraft, from way back when, in it’s early days, but they removed it a few years ago so, now you’ll need to own it to play.
