Shard of Laputa


The Shard of Laputa is an item added by Botania. When used on a block, it will start lifting the nearby ground 42 blocks up, slowly creating a floating island. There are 20 varieties of the shard, each with higher Shard Power, up to Shard Power XX.

An island created by the level I shard has a radius of 14 blocks. Each additional level of Shard Power increases the radius by 1 block, up to a maximum of a radius of 33 blocks.

In terms of the dimensions the lifted island would take up, a level I shard will lift a sphere of dimensions 27x27x27 blocks, while a level XX shard will produce a sphere of dimensions 65x65x65.
