For Minecraft fans who love building diverse structures with unique design elements, the limited number of blocks and textures they get to work with can be kind of underwhelming. Sure, there are hundreds of different blocks to choose from, and some of them are even good for more than just aesthetic appeal, like Redstone blocks which can be used to run circuits throughout a house or other structure. The Chisel 2 mod gives artistically inclined players several dozen new, static blocks along with unique designs and patterns which can be etched onto those blocks by using the chisel from the mod.
It’s something you really have to see for yourself to understand. Essentially, the Chisel 2 mod takes the “random blocks” option from Minecraft’s menus and jacks it up to the extreme. This gives the user a dozen different designs for the same block rather than just one or two, plus those same players can use whatever specific design they want when building something. You don’t actually have 12 different stone blocks, for instance – what you have are 12 different designs you can etch into the face of the single, standard stone block. This means you can use any design, any time you like.
Once you’ve crafted a chisel using some iron and a stick, you can right-click it to open the special chisel GUI. This is the menu where you actually do your block carving, so you’re going to become familiar with it pretty quickly if you use the Chisel 2 mod for more than just a few minutes. All you have to do is place your starting block in the middle of the new window and the mod will take care of the rest. The mod adds a couple other utility items as well, like the Cloud in a Bottle which allows for higher jumping.
