Usage

Beacon

The Beacon GUI

Beacons mainly have two functional uses:
  • As a Light Source, providing a light level of 15.
  • A source of Status Effects, provided to Players within a certain range.

Activation

Beacon Arrangements

Various Beacon pyramid arrangements

Beacons can be activated by placing them on a 9, 34, 83, or 164 Block pyramid of Blocks of IronGoldDiamond or Emerald and giving them an open view to the sky. The Player also needs to activate it with an Iron Ingot, Gold Ingot, Diamond or Emerald. The Beacon will then activate and give off a beam of light. 

Powers

A Beacon can give the Player Status Effects when given one mineral.

Primary Powers

  • Speed I
  • Haste I
  • Resistance I (2-Level Pyramid)
  • Jump Boost I (2-Level Pyramid)
  • Strength I (3-Level Pyramid)

Secondary Powers

  • Regeneration I
  • All Primary Powers increased to Level II

Trivia

  • Like all light sources, Beacons melt Ice and Snow.
  • The Player can place a non-solid block, such as Ice, on top of the Beacon without disturbing the beam of light the Beacon projects.
  • The range of the Beacon to give status effects depends on the size and the quality of the pyramid.
  • After Update 1.2 it will be possible to change the color of the Beacon's beam using Stained Glass.
