Required Experiments for Tough as Bedrock Addon

Addon Main Features:

This addon brings to your game a whole new experience, with its main additions being thirsty and temperature, both of these are enabled by default, but you can also enable stamina, which will make the game even more challenging.

Cold Biome and Ice Resistance Effect


The thirst bar is located above the hunger bar. The thirst bar empties over time and when you do activities such as sprinting or jumping. The thirst bar also empties when you are subject to extreme temperatures or when the environment you are in is arid.

Thirst Feature

If you are too thirsty, you will be slowed, and when your thirst bar reaches zero you will slowly start to die.

To avoid this, you will have to hydrate yourself, there are several ways to do it.

The best way to fill your thirst bar will therefore be to purify water. You can boil some in a furnace or over a fire, use filters, Ghast tears and some talent in potions making, or even collect rainwater, which is much less toxic.


Stamina is an optional feature that can be activated with a command. The stamina bar is above the thirst bar and empties as you perform tiring activities.

Stamina Feature

When you have low stamina, your actions will be hampered and you will die over time. The stamina bar fills up over time, and it fills up faster when the player is not active.


The temperature meter is located above your level. When you spawn in your world, you are immune for 5 mins to extreme temperatures.

Temperature Immunity Icon

Be careful, though, as once those 5 minutes are up you will be at the mercy of the environment. The temperature meter represents your body temperature. When it's gray, your body temperature is balanced, you don't need to worry.

Balanced Temperature Icon

If the meter starts to turn blue, you're cooling down, but be careful not to get too cold, or you'll freeze to death.

The Player Feels Cold

If, on the other hand, your temperature meter goes towards red, then you are warming up. Also, if you get too hot, you will die. Be careful when exploring the hottest biomes like the nether!

The Player Feels Hot

How to survive?

  • You can protect yourself from extreme temperatures by wearing clothing, Volcano Armor for warmth and Winter Armor for cold.
  • You can also drink an ice resistance potion or a fire resistance potion that will make you immune to extreme temperatures for a set amount of time.
  • Eating ice cubes can also cool you down, maybe it could prove useful.
  • You can use blocks such as coils and campfires to affect the temperature in an area.

Finally, there is an artifact (Thermal Rune) that makes you immune to extreme temperatures, it can be found in a guarded location underground, or in certain structures in the deserts.

There are plenty of ways to play around these new restrictions and I haven't said everything, I'll let you have fun and discover what this addon can bring to your Minecraft experience.

You can find Thirst, Temperature and Stamina info in the HUD section of the How to Play menu, when you're in-game, or when the resource pack is applied globally.

A more versatile and effective way is the Rain Collector.

Water Purification

If you decide to drink water in the wild, your thirst bar will fill up, but you will get a thirst effect, you also risk getting infected with parasites.

To drink dirty water from a river or lake, go to the water, sneak and hit it.

Thirst and Parasites Debuffs

There are several ways to purify water.

The easiest way is to warm up dirty water with a furnace:

Purifying Dirty Water in the Furnace

This is not a very effective way because you are wasting many resources and time. So, you can craft a Canteen to use it multiple times.

But this is not the most universal way because there is a Rain Collector! During the rain, it collects purified water.

Addon Commands:

  • /function start: Starts the addon
  • /function stop: Stops the addon
  • /function cleanworld: In case the addon stopped, try this
  • /function settings: Opens the settings menu, allowing you to enable/disable stamina or drink punching

Functions Start and Restart


Player.entity.json is a minecraft file that contains parts of the player code (resource). By modifying this file, add-on creators gain access to otherwise unavailable functionalities. But this file can only be modified by one addon on each world, that's why it has compatibility issues. If you're using an addon on your world that uses player.entity.json, it will be incompatible with tough as bedrock. I can't find a work around like I did with player.json, the player.entity.json file is mandatory to have the custom bars. This file is often used by addons that modify the player model/animations or addons that have custom 3D items.

There is an addon compatible with tough as bedrock which can help you counter temperature by adding new equipment, it is Furing Fabrick I recommend you to try it alongside tough as bedrock!
