What is Limited Lives Mod 1.12.2?
The Limited Lives mod by iChun is a total game balancer for those who are fond of survival or hardcore mode. If you want to be a game master and control a fun gameplay for other players who joined your server, or just someone who likes to play with a little bit of mercy and just the right amount of thrill, then this mod is something you will want to check out.
Why Use This Mod
You can play Minecraft in either the survival mode or hardcore mode. The thing about these two game modes is that in the survival mode you will have unlimited lives. It’s good when you are trying to do something risky, and you want to be able to learn from that mistake. On the other hand, the hardcore mode pumps up your adrenaline by just giving you one life to live, and when you die, it’s over. That is why when playing in this game mode, one should be very careful and smart. So you’re left to work with these two extremes. Either you have one life or unlimited lives. This is where the Limited Lives mod comes to play.
How It Works
As the name suggests, the Limited Lives mod sets a limit to the lives of every player in the entire server. The default setting of this mod is, when a player dies, he or she will respawn with fivehit points (HP) less or half a heart on their health bar. The number of lives will also be reduced by 1. Once the player runs out of lives, he or she will be put on spectator mode or will be banned from the server for a certain amount of time. These configurations can be set by the server owner.
Before everyone can enjoy Minecraft with difficulty set midway using the Limited Lives Mod, the server owner has to read the instructions carefully and learn how to modify the settings of the mod. For example, when a player dies, and you as the server owner want to revive that player, you will need to learn how to reset or add lives first. Also, the server owner cannot be banned from his or her server.
As for the players, they don’t need to do all the techy configuring. They just have to enter !ll or !limitedlives to view the number of lives they have left. This way, they will be able to come up with a strategy on how they can be on an advantage in the game. This is one of the greatest perks of using the Limited Lives.
Another thing that you as a player must be careful of is when you run out of lives, you will either be put on spectator mode, which leaves your things unguarded and may give opponents the chance to take everything from you. This makes the game more exciting because instead of just items and EXP, now the number of lives also plays a big role in the game.
