    posted a message on Matchlock Guns [1.12.2] [WIP] - Matchlocks, Flintlocks, Wheellocks, Cannons and more

    Its made by me, though its one of my first mods, so a lot of tutorials, guides and other resources have been used.

    This one is a good one to start with I think:

    though there are plenty of tutorials for modding.

    It will probably be way easier if you have some prior coding or especially java experience before. I had done a bit of other programming languages before but not much java, so it took a while to get used to.

    This series is also very good:

    Maybe, though for now il probably stick to pixel art, since it makes it easier to add more content.

    Quote from Ghiojo»

    This is an interesting mod!
    I think adding Wheel locks would be an interesting combination, they would be easier to shoot but they can get ruined much easier, perhaps if not properly cleaned it could break! Also a gun jamming or ruining system would be good, and I think that flintlocks should be a tad more expensive, same for revolvers, things like those just massively overtook and went over wheel locks and cinder/Matchlocks when they appeared, and are much more of a reliable system, but since they were invented in the 18th century it'd make sense they should be more expensive. Perhaps the ability to aim or hold fire by holding right click would also be nice, be able to line up your shot, hipfiring is always something I find uncomfortable.

    Also you could probably try adding a simpler weapon like a hand cannon, the first types of weapons, which could be quite cheap, that you can load, but it has much more chances of blowing up on you! The possibilities are endless!

    I like this mod and I hope you keep updating it, a good old guns plugin is something I always like to see! Cheers!


    A gun jamming system is already in the mod (In 1.12.2-1c and after) though I think it could use some work.

    I am currently in the process of improving the gun recipes, so the flintlocks and revolvers will be more expensive.

    Il look into adding wheel locks.

    Also, durabillity is probably something that will be added later, so that could also play into things like flintlocks, revolvers and wheellocks.

    A gun mod about early gun technology.

    In this mod, you reload your guns by crafting them with gunpowder and rounds (Legacy system). There are also cannons.


    -Matchlock Arquebus

    -Matchlock Pistol

    -Matchlock Pepperbox

    -Matchlock Blunderbuss (Not yet in the newest version)

    -Flintlock Pistol

    -Flintlock Musket

    -Flintlock Revolver

    -Flintlock Revolver Musket

    -Flintlock Rifle

    -Double Barreled Flintlock Rifle

    -Volley gun

    -Wheellock Pistol

    -Wheellock Musket

    -Wheellock Repeater

    -Blunt Gun (Not yet in the newest version)

    -Breechloaded Caplock Rifle


    For up to guaranteed up to date recipes and info, please refer to the wiki - Note that the reloading system has changed since update 5a, guides can be found in the combat tab in creative.


    Most guns are a simple right click to fire (Note that the revolvers have a cooldown)

    The matchlock guns however require you to first right click with a flint and steel in your offhand, then de-equip that flint and steel, and then right click with the gun again to fire



    Metal Rod:


    Smooth barrel:

    -See lathe recipes

    Rifled barrel:

    -See lathe recipes


    Revolver mechanism:





    Hardened Chisel:


    Mechanical Parts:

    Smooth Barrel

    -Made with a metal rod using the normal chisel

    Rifled Barrel:

    -Made with a metal rod using the hardened chisel

    GUN RECIPES [Ones that arent listed are the same as legacy recipes, and reloading is the same as legacy for all guns]:


    2xMetal rod, 1xMatchlock, 1xGrip

    Matchlock Pistol:

    -Uses small amounts of gunpowder, and is cheap to craft

    -Reloaded the same as the flintlock pistol

    1xMetal rod, 1xMatchlock, 1xGrip


    1xMetal rod, 1xIron ingot, 1xMatchlock, 1xGrip

    Double Barreled Rifle:

    3xRifled barrel, 1xUltra precision mechanical parts, 1xFlintlock, 1xGrip

    Volley Gun:

    3xSmooth barrel, 2xRevolver mechanism, 1xFlintlock mechanism, 1xUltra precision mechanical parts, 2xGrip

    RECIPES [SOME ARE [LEGACY]; Only works before 1.12.2-2a]:

    Basic ingredients:
