Waila Harvestability Mod Review
Waila Harvestability Mod is a simple but extremely useful mod to have around. It is a client side add-on of the Waila Mod or Hwyla Mod. So, if you have ever used Waila, then you already have an idea of how this add-on mod works. Waila stands for What Am I Looking At. Based on its name, it is easy to determine what you can expect from having this mod installed. Waila Harvestability Mod makes harvesting resources a lot easier. Where the original mod provided block information, the add-on focuses on details that will help you harvest more efficiently.
One of the challenges of harvesting is the trial and error process when it comes to finding the right tool. With numerous other mods installed, your game probably has a multitude of blocks or resources you would like to mine. Deciding what tool to use would not be so tedious if there were not so many types of each tool. And to add to this dilemma, certain blocks can only be mined or harvested by a specific type of tool. For example, pickaxes are the best tools to use for mining. However, certain types of blocks can only be mined if the pickaxe is made from a specific element.
While holding an Iron Pickaxe (with default settings):
Waila Harvestability takes the guesswork out of choosing the right tool. It shows a tooltip display that gives you all the information you need. This includes the tool type, the material the tool should be made of and the mod that implements that particular block. For example, to mine a Diamond Ore, you would need to use a pickaxe with a Redstone level. Diamond is an element or resource delivered by vanilla or by default. If you want to mine an Obsidian block, you need to use a pickaxe that has an obsidian harvest level. So, if you have a lower or different type of pickaxe, the obsidian block cannot be harvested.
The tooltip display also shows other elements such as plants and bushes. Instead of showing the harvest level, an icon will show whether the block can be sheared or harvested by hand.
Silk Touchability and Shearability:
One feature of Waila Harvestability Mod that players find very convenient is its customizing function. You may not need all the details on the tooltip especially if you do not have a lot of mods implemented. You can easily change the mod’s configuration so you only see what you want to see. You can choose not to show the harvest level or the effective tool needed. Perhaps, you would only want to see details of ores and nothing else. Whatever you want can certainly be customized.
Waila configuration screen:
To use this mod, you need to make sure that you have the Waila Mod and Minecraft Forge installed as the Waila Harvestability requires them for the build. So, if you have ever struggled with figuring out how a certain block can be harvested, this is the perfect mod for you. And with its highly customizable options, you can make adjustments as you get more familiar with the blocks available in your world.
Note: This mod is mostly intended for use with Tinkers’ Construct, but the information is still applicable without it.
