Lucky Block Mod

The lucky block mod is an interesting but potentially devastating add-on to Minecraft. It adds a Question mark printed block to the game and once broken has a chance of spawning something good or something awful.

The block has a chance of spawning something great like a bevy of food and sweets or even a fully tamed and armor-clad horse:

Or something devastating like a block of lava and fire:

Or an armored zombie named Bob with an enchanted sword:

You may luck out with a super lucky block that spits out lucky potions that can also vary in the good or bad luck bestowed upon breaking them.

The point of this mod is to give new usage to gold ingots. If you find yourself always stocked with gold but don’t ever use it, this mod is for you. You can now turn that weak metal into Lucky Blocks and let fate decide what comes out.

It’s a neat mod for multiplayer servers or for making game maps but with how random the blocks behave it can be a dangerous mod for your regular map. It’s recommended to either back up your map or create one specifically for this mod lest you risk wreaking unwanted havoc on your favorite world.

    October 19, 2014
    • Get it from creative or get the materials for it in survival and craft it.

      November 10, 2014
    • crafted with 4 gold ingots and a dropper, and can also be found naturally in your world

      December 17, 2014
      • no its 8 gold ingots and a dropper

        January 11, 2016
    • Craft a crafting table and find 8 golden ingots and make a dropper then put the golden ingots round the edge and the dropper in the middle.

    • 1. Install forge.
      2.Find it in the downloads folder.
      3. Drag it to the folder that is %appdata%>.minecraft>mods (If there is not one, you have not suceesfully installed forger and ran it.)
      4. Enjoy sir!

      April 16, 2015
    • Download technic launcher. It has a ton of mods and modpacks to play on. You need Java (45th update ) and it’s easy to install the Java update. Go to your library and search technic Launcher. Creat a shortcut, and then u can play the mods

      May 20, 2015
    • you need to download forge and then type into your windows search %appdata% and then either make a folder in the .minecraft that folder needs to be named mods then drag the mod from google chrome to the mod folder then exit out of that and start up minecraft you will see the thing in the bottom left when it first opens click new user name the user and the click version option and scroll down to forge version and say save and then change the user to that user and hit play.

      August 24, 2015
    • you need to download the minecraft forge file, open it, open a second file folder and in the top bar type %appdata%, click .minecraft then versions and drag the forge installer file into the versions folder and it will bring up a mini forge thing then just click ok, and it will say successfully moved forge into minecraft launcher or something, then open ur minecraft launcher, click edit profile, then scroll all the way down and it should say forge installer or something then click it and click done, then click play

      November 28, 2015
    • download it then go to the windows search and enter %appdata% then open up your minecraft folder make a new folder called mods and drag the mod from chrome into the folder. Make sure you downloaded the desired forge and make sure it is selected on your profile when you open the game.

      December 10, 2015
    • you need to open the minecraft menu. then click edit profile. then open game dir, after that create a folder named mods. then place the mod file in it. and there you go!

      February 24, 2016
    • First you need to install Forge
      then install the mod.
      To install the mod, go onto This PC, click your computer/Os (it’ll be the main thing there)
      go onto users, the appdata, then Roaming, the minecraft. Start up minecraft and change option to “forge”
      close it after its finished, then move all of the folders from the mod into a folder called “mods” inside the minecraft folder. There you go!

      April 12, 2017
    • you download the file from the orange download link provided above, and you place the UNZIPPED file (do not extract the files, the unextracted icon has like a little zipper on a folder) in the ‘mod’ folder, a few other comments have explained where the ‘mod’ folder is 😉

      June 11, 2017
    • if its not an archive file/folder, you have to right click the file with the mouse then click get info, then change the end to .jar and put it in the mods folder

      February 16, 2019
    • 1. Install Minecraft (if you haven’t already!)
      2. Install Minecraft forge at but you have to make sure that you install the correct version according to the version of Minecraft you are currently at
      3. Click the download button and put the mod in the mods folder (Accessed by searching %appdata% then going to the Roaming folder and going to the .minecraft folder)
      4. Run Minecraft
      5. Enjoy the mod

  8. I’ve installed the lucky mod but in creative mode, I make the lucky block, place it then mine it and nothing happens. Is it for survival only? Thanks heap if you reply.

    October 25, 2014
    • yeah it only works in survival

      November 2, 2014
      • no it can work in creative as well as survivel use redstone torch

        March 21, 2016
    • its only for survival

      December 14, 2014
      • I wish it was for creative too that would be awesome!!!

        December 18, 2014
        • My 6 year old daughter just informed me that you can open them in creative mode by using redstone and a redstone torch.

          January 2, 2015
        • you can configure it to run when broken in creative. Go to the Lucky Block download page, it tells you how.

          July 25, 2015
    • no you can use red stone!

      January 2, 2015
    • It can work with redstone in creative

      August 2, 2015
    • yes you can only break it in survival

      December 31, 2015
    • you use a redstone torch in creative

      January 11, 2016
    • place a red stone torch down in creative then place lucky block then it will work

      March 6, 2016
    • It is only for survival but if you change the value of DoDropsOnCreativeMode in the config file to true it will work on creative also

      October 9, 2020
  9. If you mix the Lucky Block mod with another mod, does it affect the outcome of it?

    November 9, 2014

  52. If you need help making the mod work then make sure you have done the following :

    -have downloaded the mod successfully
    -have downloaded Minecraft Forge successfully and picked the second option when opened
    -the mod is in the ‘mods’ folder (%appdata%/.minecraft/mods)
    -minecraft forge is in the ‘mods’ folder
    -you have the correct game version (go to ‘Edit profile then click on the versions list and scroll down untill you find a forge version)

    I hope i helped. If you have a different problem just tweet me on twitter @David Dzo
