Meanwhile, here are the top three "Minecraft" mods for the week, which feature a number of cool items for you to try out.
The Teleportation Mod, which takes you through a dimension, can be made with a nether wand. This wand will be used to either generate a portal or take you to a nearby one. Another wand will be a sort of memory wand that remembers the location of your last teleportation.

In 9Minecraft, there are a number of recipes that you can create for wands. All in all, the mod will give you obsidian sticks, ender wand, a nether Wand, a trether ore, a teleporting ore, teleportation fragments, trether fragments, flint and diamonds, trether block, teleportation dirt and teleportation grass.
The mod, which has been optimised for "Minecraft 1.6.4," lets you add new blocks into the game, including the vending blocks, makes trading items a lot easier and lets you customise your vending block depending on the recipes that you follow to create the mechanism.
You can download the Vending Machine Block mod at MinecraftDL. To use the device, you should simply build the block and right click it to place the items inside. The new GUI for this block is very straight forward and very easy to use, and can also be used on a server.
Gravity Gun Mod
In anticipation of the still unconfirmed "Half-Life 3" that Valve has been touting the past few weeks, here is a mod that features the Gravity Gun from "Half-Life 2" now transported and translated to "Minecraft."
There are two main buttons on the gun. The primary button lets you throw back items, and those that collide with the thrown things will get hurt. The secondary button does the opposite and will pull on the entities if they are close enough.
According to SkyDaz, this creation from iChun allows you to lift and push blocks and mobs. This mod requires Forge for it to work and has been optimised for "Minecraft 1.6.4."
