You know how in Minecraft you have to stack half blocks up the sides of hills, or make a staircase from wood or a type of stone if you want to climb a hill without spamming the jump button? It’s annoying enough, but sometimes you get caught on the little edge of a cliff while trying to climb and that’s all it takes for a skeleton’s arrow to hit you in the back of the head and kill you. The Repose mod makes it much easier to climb some hills by adding natural slopes to them, but it does a few other unexpected things to change up the game too.
It’s a little technical, but the Repose mod works by taking “granular” blocks such as dirt, grass, clay, farmland and sand and then making them act as stairs. The shape of said stairs is figured based on the height and elevation levels of surrounding blocks. They look the exact same as they normally do, but under certain conditions, like when only stepping up a single block onto another “granular” block, you can simply climb without pressing space to jump. Beware; monsters will also be able to make use of the modified terrain to more quickly chase you up a cliffside too.
As far as terrain mods go, Repose is pretty light on the level of modification it applies to Minecraft. You don’t get any new blocks or anything like that – it just makes a handful of the existing ones easier to walk over without jumping regularly. If you’re looking for something more complicated than that, you’ll want to head elsewhere. For anyone who just wants to move around in Minecraft without wearing out the space button on their keyboard though, this mod is fantastic. On a related note, this mod works wonderfully when combined with the No Cubes Mod.
