Nether Essence Mod 1.12.2, 1.11.2 adds Nether Essence, which is a new way to make gunpowder, a new fuel source, and make blocks that can be used for light. It also adds a way for you to recover items that have despawned.
This mod adds the ability to craft gunpowder. With six pieces of Netherrack, two Soulsand and one bucket of water you’ll get four pieces of the Essence. Combine that with Redstone and Coal and you’ll get gunpowder.
It’s definitely a safer method for obtaining gunpowder than via Creepers, especially if you already have a surplus of Nether items. But the Essence has a few other abilities as well. You can make a new light source with it. It isn’t incredibly bright but if you add a piece of glowstone dust to it you’ll have a brighter option that is also waterproof. Both are neat additions both functionally and aesthetically in terms of lighting.
The Nether Essence Mod adds a new item and 2 new blocks. The item, Nether Essence, is the main point of the mod and its primary purpose is to craft gunpowder.
Nether Essence is crafted with 6 Netherrack, 2 Soul Sand and 1 Magma Block.
4 Nether Essence can then be crafted with 4 Redstone dust and 1 piece of coal to make gunpowder.
8 Nether Essence can also be crafted together to make a Nether Essence block, which acts as a source of light, although it is not as bright as Glowstone or torches it is still waterproof.
For a stronger source of light, you can make a Radiant Nether Essence Block by adding a glowstone surrounded by nether essence.
Alternatively both Nether Essence and Nether Essence Blocks can be used as a nether-found fuel source. Nether Essence can smelt 4 blocks and Nether Essence Blocks can smelt 32 blocks.
