Colorful Tools Mod – If you’ve been playing Minecraft for a relatively large period of time then the thought of having colored weapons and equipment in your inventory has probably crossed your mind once or twice. While it might sound silly and rather useless at first sight, having the ability to dye you’re the tools in your inventory can actually have multitudes of great uses.
One of the key reasons this mod would be so useful the fact that it makes creating teams in multiplayer modes much more convenient since each team can be designated a color of equipment that they have to carry which will allow everyone to easily distinguish who’s who. Another reason you’d like to be able to apply colors is if to make your equipment like swords and armor look according to your preferences.
The Colorful Tools Mod is here to make all the aforementioned things a reality. The mod basically does exactly what the name would have you believe. It implements items into the game known as dye tools which you can then use to dye your weapons tools or whatever else to the color of your preference. Perhaps the biggest highlight of this mod is how it doesn’t just overwrite colors if you dye a tool that already has a color applied to it. Instead, it combines those two colors and the end result is pretty impressive.
For example if you have a blue colored tool and apply a yellow dye sample to it then you’ll end up with a green colored tool which is exactly how colors work in reality. This shows that a lot of work and thought went into designing this mod and makes it well worth installing onto your client.
To color something in Minecraft you must have that certain object in your inventory as well as the dye sample of the color that you’re hoping to achieve. Once you have both these things simply combine them together and the color of the dye sample will be applied to whatever item it was combined with. The process is fairly straightforward and easy to follow so pretty much everyone will be able to do it without running into difficulties or issues.
Something worth keeping in mind about this Minecraft Mod is that while the name of it might imply that it can only color tools but that isn’t necessarily the case. The dye samples can be used for pretty much all objects you can think of like swords, armor and such.
The Colorful Tools Mod for Minecraft has been designed by Torqueblot and is available for download and both Minecraft 1.9/1.8 and 1.7.10
