Basic Shields Mod for Minecraft 1.20.2, 1.20.1, 1.19.2 and 1.18.2, incorporates new shields that can be crafted using other pre-determined ores. In fact, it is compatible with other mineral mods, which will make the number of shields even higher.
For example, players will have the possibility to use a Netherite shield, which will obviously look similar to the mineral. Similarly, some features of these shields may also change, such as the waiting time before the shield can be used (in this case, four seconds).
By default, and without the use of any other add-on or mod that adds minerals, the creator has taken it upon himself to add shields of gold, iron, diamonds, netherite or even bronze. All of these combine perfectly with the armour pieces of the same mineral.
Apart from the cooling or waiting time, the durability of these shields will also depend on the ore allocated at the time of manufacture. For example, diamond and Netherite shields will have a much higher durability compared to bronze or gold shields.
The creator’s aim is none other than to expand the variety of shields in the games, while maintaining the essence of the default ones. For example, add gold, diamond, bronze, bronze, iron or Netherite shields.
