Download Rival Rebels 1.4.7

Rival Rebels (Plasma cannon update) for Minecraft 1.4.7 and 1.4.6.


The new Plasma Cannon, a non-griefing weapon that bursts fusion energy to disperse mobs and players. It is powered by hydrogen rods. Perfect to defend your base, tossing your enemies away!

This weapon needs a skilled user, aiming is not straight forward and the firing distance should be medium to long-range to avoid being pushed back by the bubble.
(Perfect for rocket jumping though :))
This weapon is a ton of fun!

The Rod-Disk
Obi-Wan's quote: "Your father's Rod Disk. This is the weapon of a Rebel Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a plasma cannon; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Before the dark times..."




Well, thank you Obi-Wan...  The Rod disk (obviously similar to the Tron disk, (you don't say...)) is a melee mid-range weapon, just for the very skilled user. Throwing the disk effectively and catching it again is very hard for a novice.
On the Regular rank or default (white when thrown) is not deadly against other players, and anyone can catch it back. But when unlocked through the command "/rr  " plus the password, it becomes deadly for everybody but it's master.
The upper-ranks Rod disks fly farther, kill faster and bounce harder, so they are also harder to manage. When used in tight spaces, the disk will keep on hurting everybody but its owner...




I also fixed a ton of glitches, cleaned up the code and added new and very drastic changes.
For example: I eliminated the name tags in game, so you are no longer spotted behind solids, meaning you can hide underground or behind a tree. I know this is a very strong measure because when RR mod is running, there will be no name tags whatsoever and no configuration way to turn them on. The problem is that I can not let the server turn tags on-off independently from the client because Forge is universal, and it doesn't synchronize the client to the server specs. So if I put a config method to do so, the client could turn tags on and see everybody's tag without showing his. (an exploit).

Another change is the 'keep inventory after death'. When the Spawn Dome is placed the command is set to enable automatically. (If you don't want this feature you can turn it off with /gamerules keepInventory false).




Yes, hand-held 3D items! and yes, eventually I will make all weapons 3D, please be patient, I'm only one guy doing the coding and the 3D modeling! I'm in middle school and I need time to finish my Science fair project, btw I'm using an Arduino microcontroller for the project, they are really cool.

  1. The new Rod disk looks awesome! Will you be able to put the Rod disk on your back like Tron in a future update?

    1. I would love to do that, but i do not think there is a way to implement it. I dont think that armor has a render hook.

    2. Have you tried using Player API? It can be used to create a second armor slot, but it will only have one spot so that you can carry your weapon, or your Rod disk, onto your back.

    3. To do that I'll need to make RR dependent on another mod besides Forge. It will make RR harder to install too.

    2. So after skiping the adfly ad using the top corner button, does it give you the message? Or when you click the the 'here' link? Anyway try firefox or any other browser because I checked just now and the link is fine. 500 downloads today so far.
