1.9 ModulesCurrently in Progress
This page was featured as it is an Outstanding Article.

The Minecraft 1.9 snapshot 15w34a saw the addition of two new command block types, chain and repeating, among the existing impulse command blocks. Due to this change, Sparks plans to optimise all of the current and upcoming Gamemode 4 Modules for this change, to reduce both lag and size.

Snapshot 15w35a added new "needs redstone" setting on command blocks, increasing compactification even further.

Please Note: Updates will likely only be released for 1.9 official update. 1.8 modules will still exist; their pages will likely be moved to a subpage.

Identifier Edit

An identifier armour stand will be added to all modules to make sure that the module has successfully been installed. This will help with troubleshooting and most of the 1.9 modules currently include this.

Achievements Edit

Another new feature added to Gamemode 4 modules in 1.9 are achievements, which players can earn by doing specific tasks which usually have to do something with the module.
