The Saber Mod for Minecraft 1.5.2 and 1.6 is a relatively new mod released for Minecraft 1.5.2 by developer Briggy_Bros. Briggy_Bros has been working for the Saber Mod for around fourteen months now, he claims that he wished to release it as part of a much larger mod pack entitled: ‘Willow’, but after its failure he strived to re-code the Saber mod and built in FORGE independencies. This mod is a great addition to a Minecraft mod collection and it works very well with the Star Wars mod, but operates independently very well too. This mod is a MUST-HAVE for all fans of the Star Wars franchise.
Saber Mod for Minecraft 1.5.2 and 1.6 Main Features
- The ores in this mod include: Amethyst, Ruby, Amber, Onyx, Jade, Iolite, Sapphire and Topaz.
- With these ores, you can make the obvious: Tool sets, weapon sets and armour.
- Combining three glass in a crafting table will you give you a three lens’, you can then combine this lens with a ‘Power Crystal’ and an ore of your choice to give you the main feature of the mod!
- Iron ingots, 3 lens, a single power crystal and one diamond will you give you a blue lightsaber! The same combination of items with a ruby will output red, etc.
- You can combine iron ingots with a diamond and a power crystal to give you a Star Wars gun!
Saber Mod for Minecraft 1.5.2 and 1.6 Pros and Cons
POSITIVES: This mod provides an overall fantastic Minecraft experience. I recommend combining this mod with the Star Wars mod for the best results! The textures of the added items are very professionally made and the mod features a simple and easy install. The mod can be installed for both client and server and is forge compatible.
NEGATIVES: I can’t pick a fault with the Saber mod, it is small yet compact, and overall is a great addition to the game.
