Water Strainer is a mod that will allow us to manufacture fishing nets to obtain, comfortably and autonomously, food, objects and resources from the currents of rivers, lakes and the seas of Minecraft. These nets, once placed in the water, will be responsible for catching fish, as well as sticks, gravel, sand, stone, iron and gold nuggets, etc., without having to intervene in the process, beyond collecting all that That has been captured.
Operation is as simple as manufacturing any type of network, as there are several types of capture networks. Once manufactured, we will place it in the water, taking into account that the water covers the network. Under the net we will have to place the strainer block, which will be in charge of storing everything that the networks capture.
How to start:
(1) Craft a strainer base.
(2) Craft any type of strainer.
(3) Place the strainer base inside a pool of water (the base needs water on top).
(4) Put your strainer into the base
The strainer will now filter the water for items. The list of items depends on the strainer type.
Items can be inserted and extracted from the bottom part of the Strainer Base.
There are currently three different types of strainer:
Fisherman’s Strainer: Collects all kinds of fish, junk and treasures (Requires Bait)
Survivalist’s Strainer: Collects general items such as Stone, Sticks, Clay, Planks
Survivalist’s Strainer (Dense): Collects general small-sized items such as Sand, Gravel, Dirt, Nuggets
Idle Time & Durability:
The Strainer Base will attempt to catch an item every 25-35 seconds (by default).
Depending on the efficiency (section below) the idle time will increase or decrease.
Catching an item will damage the Strainer and use up 1 durability.
A higher tier strainer does not have a higher chance to catch something, it will just last longer.
Better ones also receive additional bonuses like efficiency or enchantability
Your strainer’s efficiency is based on its placement and increases/decreases the idle time (if enabled).
You can craft an Efficiency Meter to measure the exact percentage. The strainer is currently influenced by:
Still water / flowing water:
Still water (a water source block) will give you no bonus.
Flowing water on the other hand is more efficient and will increase the efficiency by 10%.
A lower water level means less efficiency.
If your Strainer Base is more than 1 block away from a water source block, the efficiency will drop by 3% for each block. Which means if your Strainer is at the very end of a water stream (8th block) it will lose 6*3% = 18% efficiency.
So make sure your strainer is as close to the water source as possible, but not directly on the source to benefit from the flowing water bonus.
Adjacent Strainer Bases:
Every Strainer Base in the adjacent 8 Blocks will lower the efficiency by 15%.
So if you plan to make a “farm” make sure to leave 1 block free between each Strainer Base.
If you build your Strainer Base in a specific biome the efficiency may differ.
The Strainer Base itself needs to be in that biome, not the water. Biomes that matter are:
+10% Bonus – (Deep) Ocean
+15% Bonus – Beach
+20% Bonus – River
