A new build utilities is a plugin or tool that extends your Minecraft experience by adding systems, tools, or objects that will help you in your phase of building. To some people, they might seem pointless, but it can be worthwhile to download a few before you start building your projects, and wish you had them sooner instead of having to worry about them later.
Why Build Utilities?
The main reason for building utilities is that they will allow you to give a project a little more precision and make the construction process easier, especially if you are in a hurry and don’t want to waste your time searching through your inventory for blocks or can’t find what you need. Some build utilities also include structures that help you be more efficient by not only adding the blocks you need but also placing them correctly so they can be built on with other blocks without having to worry about their orientation.
For example, you might download a build utility that has a structure that builds corner fences for you. If you want to create something like this, then instead of having to place the fence blocks and then being able to add some blocks or torches on it without having to worry about their orientation of them, all you have to do is place the structure down and they will automatically be placed in the right position. This structure is also compatible in other ways, such as with world editors, so you can build your world with these structures instead of having to build them by hand.
How to Build Utilities
You want to download a Minecraft build utility, or at least try out the ones that are available on the internet, and then you want to try copying and pasting them into your plugins folder as they usually have an example showing how they can be used in Minecraft. This way you can see how the actual utility works and how it functions with other plugins, and check for any errors or problems that you may encounter.
Depending on the type of utility that you have installed, you may be able to use it right away without any modification being required. However, if you have used other utilities in Minecraft before, then you will want to do a few simple steps first.
This mostly involves modifying the plugin to work with Minecraft and properly displaying whatever it is that it’s supposed to show. To do this, you need to create an instance of the utility and change the method or functions that it will use so that they fit your needs.
Installing Build Utilities
To install a build utility, the first thing you want to do is find one that you like online. Then you just have to follow the instructions on how you can download it to your computer and then place it in your plugins folder. Some might be easier to install than others, so you might not have to follow these steps to the letter.
You will also want to make sure that the build utility works with your version of Minecraft, whether it’s a single-player or a multiplayer game. If you download one that doesn’t work in multiplayer, and you would rather play with it than go back and find another one, then you could try and modify it yourself so that it will work on Minecraft servers and clients.
Build utilities usually contain scripts created by the programmer of the utility that allow it to do something or include functions that run automatically when you place down the structure or use them in other plugins. They can range from simple things such as placing blocks perfectly, to more complicated functions such as automatically entering player names and giving them extra permissions. It’s best if you try out a few before you build your project, just so you can see what they are capable of and what they can do for your efforts.
