Portal Gun (Item)
(Redirected from Portal gun)
|Source Mod||Portal Gun|
The Portal Gun is an item which replicates the behavior of the Portal Gun from the Valve game series Portal. It connects two different points in space, allowing for instant transportation between them.
The Portal Gun item works in the same way as it does in the Portal game series. Left-click and right-click will produce an aperture of the corresponding color, and pressing R will close all apertures. The basic Portal Gun fires a blue and an orange aperture.
An aperture is 2 blocks tall by 1 block wide. It can be placed on any non-transparent surface so long as there is space for it. The outline of the aperture can be seen through blocks when the portal gun is held in-hand.
All same-type Portal Guns share the same two apertures. One Portal Gun can change the position of an aperture fired by another Portal Gun.
The Portal Gun can pick up any solid block or mob by pointing at it and pressing G. The thing being picked up becomes an entity. Pressing G again will place the thing down. This includes spawners, beehives, and rubber tree (including the sap hole); blocks which otherwise cannot be moved. This does not include most machines, warded glass, and non-solid blocks such as torches and flowers.
Entities can move freely through portals, including entities being picked up by the Portal Gun.
The Portal Gun can be fired at the moon. If so, the other end of the portal will suck in all blocks, entities, mobs and players within an 8-block sphere centered on the portal. Anything sucked through is destroyed and/or killed. However, flowers do not seem to be affected by this unless the block they are planted on is sucked in.
On the day after your date of birth (as you indicated when you registered your minecraft account), a cake with a torch (candle) on it will appear in front of all portals, however they are only graphically there, they cannot be interacted with, and you move right through them.
Rarely, a Portal Gun may be found in Dungeon chests.

 Portal Gun variants
There are a number of variants of the Portal Gun. Each needs to be crafted using the basic Portal Gun.
Any Portal Gun variant may be found in Dungeon chests.
 Atlas' Portal Gun
Atlas' Portal Gun fires a light blue and a purple aperture. These two apertures are shared by all Atlas' Portal Guns in the game.
 P-Body's Portal Gun
P-Body's Portal Gun fires a yellow and a red aperture. These two apertures are shared by all P-Body's Portal Guns in the game.
 Bacon Gun
A Bacon Gun's apertures are unique to that Bacon Gun, and cannot be altered by using any other Portal Gun (even another Bacon Gun). This makes it very useful for multiplayer.
The Bacon Gun's aperture colors can be customised by editing the Portal Gun mod's settings file.
 Potato Gun
A Potato Gun's apertures are unique to that Potato Gun, and cannot be altered by using any other Portal Gun (even another Potato Gun). This makes it very useful for multiplayer.
The Potato Gun's aperture colors can be customised by editing the Portal Gun mod's settings file.
 Single Colored Portal Gun
The Single Colored Portal Gun can only fire one aperture rather than two. It is produced by smelting a default Portal Gun in any furnace; the color aperture it will fire is the color of the Portal Gun when it was smelted.
Two Single Colored Portal Guns of different colors can be crafted together to create a default Portal Gun (which fires both apertures).
