The Meteor Crash Detector is a compass-like tool added by the Falling Meteors mod. Similar in function to the Meteor Proximity Detector and the Meteor Time Detector, it aids the Player in tracking down Meteor crash sites.
Like a Compass, the Meteor Crash Detector will point the Player to a specific area. Rather than pointing to the world's spawn however, it will instead lead them to the location of the latest Meteor Crash site.
The Detector only tracks naturally occurring Meteors, and is not affected by Players using Meteor Summoners.
If the Detector does not detect a latest crash site, or if the Player is in any Dimension other than the Overworld, it will instead spin around randomly, similar to a compass if used in the Nether or The End.
When used in conjunction with a Meteor Timer, the Player can consistently predict when and locate Meteors as they fall.
- Like the Clock and Compass, the Meteor Crash Detector functions normally in the NEI or crafting area without actually needing to be crafted, making it unnecessary to craft if you don't need it to be portable.
- While it may look like the Detector works inside of an Item Frame, it will fail to function as expected. It will update the display to match the item in hand but will not show where it is from the frames location. A room would be necessary to make use of this to have a more pinpointed location off of item frames.
- The Meteor Crash Detector can be used to passively locate Meteor crash sites, since it only requires that that Player knows that a meteor has landed.
