The TNT mod for Minecraft allows you to play and work with several new variant types of TNT explosives. Each version has its own special characteristics and eccentricities, covered in detail below:
When your demolition plans entail the utilization of fiery lava, the Napalm item is just the tool. When Napalm (made with 8 Lava Buckets and a block of TNT in the center) is detonated with a Redstone fuse, the explosion is converted into molten lava instead of blowing up terrain and is quite an excellent way of clearing a path, or setting up an Obsidian production.
When your demolition plans involve controlled burns or some other sort of sizable fire, you might consider the Firebomb (made with Redstone, a Lava Bucket, and Redstone along the top and bottom rows with a Lava Bucket, TNT, and a Lava Bucket in the middle). Firebombs explode in the same pattern and size as TNT, but they also set everything they hit on fire.
If you enjoy the benefits of TNT, but want to preserve everything that’s blasted, then you should definitely consider Miner TNT (made similar to Firebombs, but replace the Lava Buckets with Wood and the Redstone with Iron Ingots). While TNT only leaves 30% of anything you can get from a block, including diamonds, Miner’s TNT ensures that nothing of value is lost during your demolition activities. Users are warned that if they have a low-end processor using a few blocks of Miner TNT may produce considerable lag until the rubble and goodies are cleared.
The Nuke (made with TNT in the center and corners, and Gunpowder in the empty spaces) variant of TNT is only useful for causing massive shifts in the landscape. Stacking several blocks of Nuke together will radically and enjoyably alter a sizable chunk of your game’s world (and likely damage you a bit if you lack protection and didn’t make the fuse a decent length farther than the usual Redstone fuse for TNT). The blast radius is considerable to ten or twenty times the potency of a normal block of TNT and can cut quite deeply into mountains and other terrain.
