Players who have been modding for a while in Minecraft already know about Forge, Magic Launcher, and other mod handlers which keep track of installed, active and inactive mods – kind of like a library. The LLIbrary mod seeks to elbow its way into the mix and become the new standard for players looking to develop mods of their own, as well as those seeking to better monitor their installed mods and make installing and accessing them simpler. LLibrary isn’t exactly new, but it’s still getting regular updates from the original author, and that’s saying a lot since Forge is so popular these days.
One cool feature the LLIbrary mod has which similar mods do not is a built in animation tool. If you make some custom mobs, items or other things you have to properly animate them, right? Well, not always. Sometimes you can get away with just reusing animations that already exist in Minecraft. If you’ve done something completely new and unique, though, LLIbrary’s animation tool will help you bring your still object to life. There is also a weapon dictionary which is pretty neat – it keeps track of any new weapons added by mods and then updates other mods accordingly and if applicable.
Another special feature is the hitbox creation tool, which works well alongside the animation tool. If you spend a lot of time creating some detailed enemy, you don’t want people to be able to hit it with arrows or weapons by attacking the air around it, right? That’s just not professional. The hitbox tool allows you to create unique hitboxes for entities, even in irregular shapes in the event your monster is an irregular shape. The LLibrary mod is actually pretty useful for those players looking to design and create their own mobs, whether friendly or hostile. If you do a lot of modding, it’s worth a look.
