Minecraft is a remarkably open-ended game on its own, but mods are where the game stands out. As the most popular game that has ever existed, there are a lot of great mods out there which you can try experimenting with.
Some of the best Minecraft mods have stopped being updated, moved locations, or changed hands to new creators, and there’s no guarantee that they will be compatible with the latest version of Minecraft. Some of them require the installation of legacy versions of Forge to work. But, thankfully, installing older mods isn’t too tricky, most mods come with instructions.
The Millénaire Mod
How often have you explored a world only to find nothing but emptiness? The Millénaire mod fixes that by adding new content into spaces where there’d usually be nothing. The Villagers are replaced by human men, women, and children, instead of the standard bog villager. The villages have also had a makeover to incorporate 11th-century Norman, North Indian and Mayan themes.
The Fossils and Archeology Revival Mod
Dinosaurs, who wouldn’t want to ditch creepers to ride around on a T-Rex? Apart from being able to spawn dinosaurs, the player can also hunt down fossils and bring these beasts back to life.
The Jurassicraft Mod
The JurrasiCraft mod lets you create your prehistoric world by extracting DNA from fossils or amber that you can find. This mod even includes vehicles to help you make your way around. You can bring back some prehistoric plants too. Just remember that dinosaurs are much bigger than you and usually hungry.
The Mystcraft Mod
Summon a new dimension with the Mystcraft mod, it lets you create ‘Linking Books’ that allow you to travel around the multiverse with the contents of the book illustrating the different worlds you will discover. You might find an endless ocean with giant trees sprouting from the water or a series of snow-covered floating islands. But, remember some of the new dimensions could be unstable, falling apart around you.
The Aether II Mod
The Aether pronounced as “ee-ther” is the opposite of the Nether. The Nether is the Minecraft’s equivalent of hell, and the Aether is a heavenly realm. Once teleported via a portal, you’ll find yourself above the clouds surrounded by gorgeous, newly-designed floating islands.
The Lost Cities Mod
Life as we know it has mysteriously ended. Buildings are in ruins, and everyone has vanished. The Lost Cities, as the name indicates, spawns you into a city lost in time. The goal is to see how long you can survive in this post-apocalyptic wasteland without succumbing to death.
The Project Red Mod
Those of you frequently working with Redstone will understand what a task it can sometimes be. The Project Red Mod changes that, adding enhanced control over what you’re doing and allowing you to make your circuits more compact. It also adds integrated logic gates, enabling automated tasks to run more smoothly.
The Biospheres Mod
Creating a biosphere of a decent size takes around eight-hours, give or take. Making something spherical rather than a rough diamond isn’t that easy. The Biospheres mod removes all the irritating obstacles and spawns you into a world where the sky is swarmed with several hovering biomes.
