Scanner Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 for Minecraft is programmed and designed to introduce two new blocks with fairly simple utilities. The main block known as Scanner allows players to create a random chunk with similar structures to chunks of the original Minecraft, which helps Sky Block players who are having troubles surviving with mineral extraction. They can use the new chunks and blocks to help with the difficult situations.

Sky Block is a well-known play style of Minecraft. In a Sky Block world, the player’s skill is pushed to the max, as they are provided with only a bare minimum amount of resources, turning their survival into a situation whereas just one mistake can make the player unable to develop and must restart from the beginning. New players with no survival experience will face many difficulties, but for longtime players, Sky Block is a very exciting and challenging game mode.

But there is a problem while playing Sky Block, is that sometimes players will need a type of resources that cannot be crafted; or there is no other way to find that types of resources for use in the world of Sky Block, which is when Scanner mod enters to help players. Also Scanner Mod also has a block that helps players to identify biomes if needed to help with survival and construction.
