Although the Instant Structures Mod (ISM) is a mod for Creative mode, you can easily use it in Survival mode. For this to work, ISM provides crafting recipes for all important items and blocks. But these have their price. Each of crafting recipes requires one to twelve diamonds.
This design decision was made because then structures with tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of blocks cannot simply be placed in Survival mode for free.
But now we come to the crafting recipes:
|Green Block||Green Wool + Diamond|
|Red Block||Red Wool + Diamond|
|Bounding Box||Green Block + Red Block|
|Bounding Box||Green Wool + Red Wool + Diamond|
|StrExplorer||Book + Block of Diamond|
|Place Structure||StrExplorer + Brick|
|Reposition Structure||StrExplorer + Diamond Shovel|
|Remove Structure||StrExplorer + Diamond Pickaxe|
|Place Shape||StrExplorer + Diamond Axe|
Overview of the items
But what do we need all these blocks and items for? For each item and each block now comes a little overview.
Red and Green Block
With these two blocks you can mark an area to scan it and save it as a structure. The Green and Red Blocks form the opposite corners of the bounding box. Click on one of these blocks to get to the view for saving the structure.
You also use the Item Bounding Box to scan structures. Compared to the Green and Red Block, it has a decisive advantage: It allows you to place the corner points in the air and thus you are much more flexible.
This item is the most important in ISM. Because it provides access to the wiki and from this you can call all important functions: placing, scanning, repositioning and removing structures.
With this item you come to the view to place structures. This makes it one of the most widely used items in ISM.
You have misplaced a structure? No problem, because with this item you can reposition structures.
With this item you can remove structures from your world.
This item has nothing to do with structures in the true sense. Because with it you can place shapes like cubes, balls, circles, cones and many more.
