This module is a Reliant Module. It requires Custom Crafting Base to do some/all of its functions.

This module allows you to attract a lightning bolt from the blue using a specially crafted lightning attractor.

Details Edit

Throwing a lightning rod on the ground will initiate a countdown of approximately 3 seconds. The time until the rod attracts lightning is displayed above it and particles are emitted. During this time, the rod can be picked up again to cancel the countdown. Once the countdown has reached zero, a bolt of lightning is summoned at it's location and the item is destroyed. This can be useful for manufacturing Charged Creepers or summoning lightning on cue for dramatic effect or as part of a trap. The rod will only start counting down once it touches the floor. Multiple rods stacked together will not count down.

Lightning Rod Stick, Blaze Powder

Additional Features (1.8)Edit

Lightning Rods will turn a Creeper Spawner into a Charged Creeper Spawner if dropped directly onto the spawner. Creeper spawners cannot be found in normal Minecraft, and an additional module like Soul Probes is required to create one.

1.9+ VersionEdit

The module update for Minecraft 1.9 and higher adds the ability to create shulkers by dropping a lightning rod onto a purpur block. This makes lightning rods great if you want to get shulkers to the overworld, get lots of shulker boxes or even use shulkers for levitation elevators. The addition was suggested by Judge2020.

Achievements (1.9+)Edit

Creating a shulker using lightning rods will unlock the Dr. Frankenstein achievement.
