It took me a long time before I ever ventured into the world of modifications. Basically, I enjoyed Minecraft as it was, so why would I need to change anything? The truth is, I didn’t know what I was missing. The modifications are typically built by users and they have a love of the game at the heart of the changes. As opposed to modifications that just change how things work, mods can improve your experience and help you get to where you are going faster. Even better, you can expand your world that much more quickly and catch up with friends who have been playing longer than you.
My favorite part of modifications or mods is TOOLS! You can find recipes for tools you never would have imagined. These tools can make your mining experience go smoothly and you can accomplish your tasks in a more timely fashion. As much as I love to play, I find I often have limited time. Being able to get into the game, use the stronger tools and get farther faster is an added bonus every time I sit down to play Minecraft.
More Interesting Visuals
Modifications also include all types of interesting visuals. The addition of villages, recently, opened up a whole new world for the single player experience. You have the opportunity to feel like you are playing with others even when you are by yourself. You can complete tasks more quickly and even have an extra stash of materials when you need them. You can build tools and mine faster as well as build your energy stash. The villages even help protect your mines. All of these additions make the visual of Minecraft more appealing.
When you are away from your mine you don’t want it ravaged by a mob and the mods can give you new protections. The mobs can only be diverted by certain things, but as users start building other lights and more potent safety nets. This protects all areas of your map as long as you find the right mod additions. For people who have longer periods of time when they can’t play, this can keep the world from falling apart while you are away. You may even want to add some of the protection mods when you go away on vacation or if you know you are going to have limited play time.
