The Vending Block for Minecraft is a very well thought out mod that makes the whole process of buying and selling in-game items much simpler, straightforward and, of course, convenient. The Vending Block comes with a full-fledged GUI to make sure that players don’t have any difficulty getting the hang of it, and it doesn’t have any technical problems either so you won’t run into any issues while using it that might hinder the experience for you. The mod’s been out for roughly a year now. It’s currently on version 1.4.3, and the developer has done an excellent job of maintaining it.
Before using the Vending Block, you’ll first need to craft the Vending Block itself with the help of the recipe provided by it. It’s worth remembering that there isn’t one specific kind of vending block so you can craft various different kinds of them depending on the materials you use in your recipe. The materials you can use in your recipe are stones, ingots or various other materials that fall in a similar category. Perhaps the best part about this block is that there aren’t any restrictions as to what items you can sell. As long as they can be a part of your inventory then you can sell them.
There’s also a multiple vending block that can be crafted if you use a dispenser instead of a Redstone in your recipe. There’s also an advanced vending block that’s crafted by using a Redstone repeater instead of the standard Redstone. The GUI of the advanced block is slightly different from the usual, and it’s different in terms of its functionality as well. The most important thing to remember about the second vending block is that you can’t put any items into its buying slot. If you want to edit the settings of a block then simply right-click it and adjust them according to your preferences.
