If you own a tablet or smartphone, then you’ve probably grown attached to that device over the years. When you play Minecraft, it seems awkward that your character doesn’t have a tablet or smartphone of his own.
That’s a problem that the HoonPad Mod seeks to solve. The HoonPad mod adds a real working tablet to your Minecraft world. You can pull up the tablet at any time and access a number of settings, games, apps, maps, and more. It’s not quite as powerful as a real tablet, but it’s the closest you’re going to get to a working tablet inside Minecraft.
The tablet itself is called the hoonPad. I don’t know why the ‘h’ is in lower case, but that’s how the mod’s creator wants it. After installing the app, you access the hoonPad by right clicking on the item in your inventory. That takes you to a GUI screen where you can access all of the following functions:
-Brain Teaser app
Some of these functions are designed to make the game easier to play – you can use the instant house app to instantly build a house, for example, as long as you have the correct materials. Other functions are designed just to kill time, like the Brain Teaser app, which spawns a brain teaser in front of the player. And some apps break core gameplay mechanics – the XP app, for example, allows players to easily add or subtract XP from their character.
You can customize the color and appearance of your tablet using the hoonPad’s ‘customize’ app. The world app allows you to change the time of day or night to whenever you want, while the creeper app causes you to blow up on the spot and adjust the explosion size.
New ideas continue to be added to the mod over time, and a lot of the mod’s features are works in progress. Whether you use your new tablet powers for good or evil is completely up to you. Download the HoonPad mod today to check it out for yourself.
