Power Pills Mod for Minecraft 1.8


Drugs are bad, m’kay? You should definitely stay away from them in real life. They can be fantastic items to boost your skills, speed and strength when you’re playing Minecraft though. The Power Pills mod adds a number of drug items to Minecraft, each of which can be used to augment the player character in some way. Everything starts by crafting an empty pill capsule. This is the ground item for every pill in the game and something you’ll need in the hundreds if you want to maintain a decent supply of power pills. As for the actual pills, their effects vary widely.

Not all of the effects are good either as the deadly pill demonstrates. This pill gives the wither 10 property when ingested and will quickly kill most players even with healing items like gapples working in their favor. Unlike potions which you can make into splash varieties and throw at people, these pills are only usable by the one holding them, so this pill is great if you want to suicide. Others include the nature pill which gives haste for a minute, water pill which gives water breathing, golden pill which provides health regeneration and others. The Power Pills mod has many pills indeed.


The only thing is that most of these pills produce effects which the player could already get normally using potions or item enchantments. While the Power Pills mod does allow you to get your hands on these effects much sooner than you would normally be able to, it also removes the need for you to go to the Nether to track down the items needed to make a brew stand and cook up potions. This can be a good thing if you hate the Nether anyhow, but mods which remove the need to go through half of the game are kind of OP.
