Fans of Portal will love this Minecraft mod. It adds support for a unique ‘Portal’ gun into the game, as well as many other features that Portal players will be familiar with. Here are the Portal Gun mod’s most popular features:
Features of the Portal Gun Mod for Minecraft 1.7.4/1.7.2/1.6.4
Teleport using portals: If you’ve never played Portal before, then the main feature of the game involves shooting a special gun at walls in order to create blue and orange portals. When you step into the blue portal, it takes you to the orange portal, and vice versa. This effectively gives Minecraft users the ability to teleport from one place to another, which is handy for both wide open areas and tight enclosed spaces. Just like in Portal, you can create the orange and blue portals by clicking your left and right mouse buttons.
Create turret guns: Another fun feature in Portal Gun Mod 1.6 is the ability to create turret guns. These guns shoot everything in sight except you and are very fun to play around with.
Energy ball turret: Shoot balls of energy from a launcher to a catcher using the energy ball turret. These energy pellets kill everything they come into contact with. They’re basically superpowered laser beams.
Weighted storage cube: Looking for healing and companionship? Portal Gun Mod 1.6 features a weighted storage cube that turns into a healing machine. When the cube is in your inventory, your character will be healed every five seconds.
Material emancipation grids: Just like in the full Portal game, you can craft material emancipation grids in the Minecraft mod. These grids can be configured in the mod’s properties file, but they are designed to destroy any material that passes through.
No more falling damage: If Portal players could be injured by falling damage, the game would be much more frustrating. Fortunately, in both Portal and the Portal Gun Minecraft mod, falling damage has been removed due to ‘advanced knee replacements’.
More achievements: Portal Gun Mod 1.6 also comes with its own unique achievements via Shockah’s achievement page. This is an optional feature, but it feels pretty good to unlock an achievement.
Many new items: The Portal Gun mod introduces a lot of new items into the Minecraft world. By incinerating your cube, for example, you will find a recorded message. Once you smelt that recorded message even further, you’ll change the recorded track. Other fun features, like the ability to craft a working radio or a defective turret, have also been added into the mod.
