Big Onion's Seasonal Decorations (Holiday themed Blocks, Items, Mounts & More!)
By The Big Onion Institute
This add-on includes a slew of high-quality, vanilla-compatible holiday decorations, goods, and even flyable broomsticks! There are many of decorations to pick from, so whether you want to adorn a dingy crypt, build a crazy scientist's lab, or simply add flare to an existing build, these decorations can help. The add-on is now focused on Halloween, but additional holiday themes are on the way! Stay tuned for more information later this year!
Quick Video Overview
The Big Onion Institute's Seasonal Decorations is essentially what it sounds like. This add-on is aimed primarily at adding high-quality Holiday decorations with a distinct vanilla-friendly feel. All of these decorations are designed to fit with the base game, and can even look good outside of the holiday season. There are plenty to choose from, so whether you are looking to decorate a dank crypt, create a mad scientist's lab, or just add flair to an existing build, these decorations have you covered. Currently, Halloween is the focus of these decorations, I plan to incorporate other Holidays in the future, so be on the lookout for coming updates!
General Overview Shot
Everything in this add-on can be obtained in one of three ways. The first and easiest way is to use the "Spawn All items" item included in the creative inventory. This spawns two barrels that contain everything currently included. The next two methods are survival-friendly. You can Buy Them from a Seasonal Trader or Craft them from a Seasonal Crafting Table. Seasonal Traders are similar to wandering traders, except they only spawn at night and will disappear during the day. They are the only way of obtaining Seasonal Crafting tables that are needed to craft every decoration.
*These only work at a Seasonal Crafting Table
Broomsticks are rare flying mounts that can only be obtained from Seasonal Traders. They may be expensive, but they are well worth the price! You control them the way you control a horse, except, once you jump, they will fly up or down based on where you are looking. Punching them will break them back into their item form (think of how boats work). I can only imagine the types of fun games you can come up with involving these!
This add-on also comes with a new type of tree, the Autumn Tree. Their saplings can be bought from the Seasonal Traders and are fully functional! They are perfect for giving a fall feel to any build!
Effect Blocks and Sound Blocks:
New to this add-on are effect blocks and sound blocks. Effect Blocks and Sound blocks are togglable blocks that, as the name implies, create sounds and particle effects at their location. When you interact with them, you can cycle through their different states to achieve the desired effect. Both types of blocks are great for establishing a spooky mood for your builds. My personal favorites are the fog machines...
Last but not least is the Showcase World! It is a fully decorated Halloween town showing many different potential uses for the decorations included with this add-on. Special Thanks to my good friend Alex. He helped quite a bit with a lot of different builds featured in the world.
