Custom Arrow Crafting

From GiBcraft Adult Minecraft Server Wiki



Arrow Crafting will allow you to take an arrow (or a stack!), and combine them with items found in the game to create new and more powerful arrows to use against your enemies, and help you in your building activities.

Getting Started

You will need to follow some steps before you're loosing arrows at baddies. Lets take a look at what is required.

Arrow Crafting Station

  1. Place a Trapped Chest on the ground
  2. While holding a Nether Star, hold SHIFT and RIGHT-CLICK on the trapped chest
  3. Once this has been done, you should see a message at the bottom of the screen confirming the creation of your new Arrow Crafting Station! You will lose your Nether Star in the process.
  4. You may want to place a sign above the chest to remind you what it is, as the chest will still maintain the look of a vanilla Trapped Chest.

Things to know!

These crafted arrows exist outside of traditional arrows and will not respect the infinity enchantment on your bow.

You cannot use another player's arrow crafting station to craft arrows. Your custom arrows can only be created by you in your own arrow crafting station.

Arrow Recipes

To craft arrows, place the required items into the chest, and then close the chest and reopen it. The crafted arrows will be added to your arrow inventory and you may remove the physical arrows that you placed into the chest when the crafting is complete.

Using the Arrow Inventory will be explained at the end of this guide.

Here are the recipes for the arrows that are currently craftable and their effects.

Using Crafted Arrows

Now that you've crafted a few arrows to play with, you can cycle through and select them by doing the following:

With a bow in your hand, hold SHIFT and Left-Click with the mouse.

Each Left-Click will select a different type of arrow, as well as tell you how many you have left. The last arrow type that showed up on the screen is the one you are currently using. Some arrows will deplete only when a target is struck (so missing a shot won't lose you an arrow) and some will deplete upon firing.
