SiegeCraft Addon For Minecraft BE 1.19+Published Aug 1, 2022
SiegeCraft addon adds several new medieval stationary armaments that can be used for defense yourself or offense others; firstly, there's the Fort Cannon which is a mainly defensive Cannon and prioritizes protection over offense. The fort cannon is heavily armed; as a result, it is tough to tear down once placed. You can nudge it, however. That way, you can get its position just right after placing. This cannon is designed to defend your base during raids or previously fortified areas. It can be moved by boat. Next up, there's the Field Cannon, which on the other hand, prioritizes mobility and flexibility. You can drag it around with a lead to quickly reposition the cannon. It can withstand some damage but is mainly meant to be used offensively, not defensively. For example, it would be great to use to attack a nether fortress or an end city.
And lastly, we've got the Siege Workshop, it is used to craft any item you see in this addon, and you can easily see all the crafting recipes without having to look them up!
There are plenty of types of ammo you can use, each with its unique effect and ability; here are the ammo types the addon currently features:
The most basic ammo type is cannon balls. They are very cheap and reliable and will probably be the rounds you use the most. They deal respectable splash damage and do severe damage with direct hits, high enough to kill a ravager in just three shots.
This ammunition type is no joke, and it does comparable damage to ordinary cannon balls but with much more significant splash damage. It can easily take out groups of enemies in a single hit.
This is a relatively cheap type of ammunition and very easy to hit. It is two cannon balls attached by a chain and will spin wildly, giving it a much greater chance to hit. It's not the most damaging shot in the game, but it is effective against hard-to-hit targets.
Another option for hitting fast or small targets is the Canister Shot. It turns the cannon into essentially a giant shotgun and fires dozens of pellets all at the same time. Each one only does minor damage by itself, but it can deal massive damage close up. It's also just enjoyable to fire...
This shot is essentially just a hot cannonball designed to set things on fire. You can add this one to your arsenal to spice things up.
This shot is another type of explosive round with the added benefit of detonating when in the proximity of an enemy. This can be helpful when shooting at phantoms. However, I need to let you know of a technical limitation. For some reason, Minecraft has disabled explosive damage, potion effects, and even damage commands from working on any boss monsters. So that means that, no matter what I did, I couldn't make this round usable against either the dragon or the wither. Apparently, this is intended behavior for boss monsters, so there's nothing I can do about it. I have no idea why Mojang would design it this way, but what can you do...
The wither shot is essentially a superpowered version of the skulls that the wither shoots. It has a massive blast radius and will inflict the wither effect on everything it touches. It's the hardest ammunition to craft, requiring wither skulls, but it is the most deadly...
Glowing Goo Shell
If you have the Cave Update Remastered installed, you can also craft the glowing goo shell. Due to even more technical limitations, they will need to be made at a crafting table and are made with this recipe. They are perfect for lighting up large areas very quickly, and it's kind of like a giant goo shotgun... Never mind, that sounds a little weird...
