Wondering what the best Minecraft mods to use are? We’re here to help! Here’s a top 10 list of our favorite mods for Minecraft.
Minecraft is an extremely popular game that has been going strong for a long time. It offers the players freedom to do whatever they want and their creativity is the limit. Since the game offers almost an unlimited amount of customizability, the modding community has gone ahead and made mods that enhance the gameplay.
These mods have been going strong since the game was first released. That is why this guide will showcase the top 10 mods for Minecraft.
Best Minecraft Mods
The best mods for Minecraft that will enhance your gameplay experience are:
- Awesome Dungeons (End Edition)
- Not Enough Animations
- MCA Reborn
The mods mentioned above are just some of the best mods for Minecraft. If you want to know about more or why these mods are considered to be the best, continue reading to find out. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 10 mods for Minecraft.
Starting off with the best mod for Minecraft, OptiFine. This is essentially a software that allows you to install various mods and shader packs. However, that is not the reason why this is the best Minecraft mod. The main reason for that is because it optimizes your game to run smoothly on your PC. It allows you to boost your FPS by either removing some of the taxing things or optimizing your game.
On top of that, it also allows you to install HD textures to your game so that it can look great. If you have beefy hardware, you will want to install HD textures or shader packs to Minecraft and OptiFine is perfect for that.
WAILA – or What Am I Looking At – is a mod that allows you to see the name of the blocks that you have your crosshair on. If you are new to the game or just want this for convenience, this mod will help you out a lot. Not only that but you can also look at some of the newer blocks and see how much charge is left in a battery or how full is a water tank. The best part is that it also works with other mods so you can even look at them and find out what they are.
Many players feel that Minecraft was missing a proper map that is not only interactive but also provides useful information. Luckily, the JourneyMap mod does just that and more. You can use this mod to display a minimap on your screen so that you never get lost. If you want, you can get a full screen map as well to make it easier to see the larger picture.
On top of that, you can see various biomes, villages, NPCs, and other useful information on this map so that you know where everything is located. You no longer have to note down coordinates of areas and remember them thanks to this mod. Also, you can even open up the map like a browser so that you get a larger display of it while still playing the game.
4. Awesome Dungeons (End Edition)
Just like the Awesome Dungeons (Nether Edition), this mod is by the same developer and it introduces a bunch of awesome dungeons for The End – excuse me for the pun. It adds new dungeons such as the Castle Evoker, Palace, Pyramid, Hard Castle, and Pill. Each of these dungeons has various mobs and challenges that you must overcome to conquer it.
The best part is that there are tons of resources and rare loot in each of these dungeons so they are definitely worth exploring if you are in The End.
5. Not Enough Animations
I’ve heard most people say that there aren’t enough animations in Minecraft. If you have played the game for a long time, you’ll start to get tired of the same old animations. However, this mod adds some much-needed new animations for your characters.
For example, if you are holding a map, your character will visibly hold it now in the third person. Plus, there are tons of subtle animations as well that changes the game when you look at it from the third-person perspective.
This mod is ideal for all the content creators out there. Plus, if you wish to take a look at your lovely creations, you can use this mod to do so. It essentially gives you a spectator view by pressing X. You can phase your camera through walls and other blocks to see what is on the other side or get a better view. This mod has tons of uses and it depends on what you want to use it for.
However, be extremely careful since your body can still be attacked by mobs. To leave the FreeCam view, you can press the X key again and you’ll return to your original position.
If you have the Minecraft Bedrock Edition, you’ll already have this feature in your game. However, if you have the Java Edition, you’ll notice that the mannequins are missing from your game. Worry not because with this mod, you’ll have the mannequins in your Java version without any issues.
If you do not know what they do, mannequins essentially serve two purposes. The first one is to display your armor and weapons to make it easy to customize them. Secondly, they can be used as great target dummies. You can set them up and use your arrows to hit them from a distance to see how good of a shot you are.
Plus, you do not have to worry about breaking the mannequins since they are indestructible. However, if you want to remove or replace it, hold down the shift button, and then you’ll be able to remove it.
If you are a fan of RPG games, this mod will be one of your favorites. It introduces various classes to Minecraft that you can choose before starting your adventure. Each class has different perks, weaknesses, and strengths. If you count the human class, then there are a total of 10 classes (or Origins as the developer calls them).
This adds a fun twist to the game as you now have the ability to choose your favorite origin and have an easier time at what that class excels at. Plus, it also fulfills your RPG needs, so there’s that.
9. MCA Reborn
Speaking of role-playing and RPG elements in Minecraft, this mod allows you to make it a full-out RPG. You can have relationships with various villagers according to how you treat them. Plus, you can even find your potential spouse if you play your cards correctly. One thing you’ll notice is that all villagers are replaced by humans that you can interact with. Plus, you can even start a family with them if you find your spouse.
That’s not all though. You can even increase your reputation in a certain village and become its ruler. The villagers will obey your commands and you will be the king of that area.
This mod does exactly what the official “The Wild” update did for Minecraft. It adds new biomes and makes various changes to the already present ones. However, I feel like this mod does a better job than the official update as it makes the biomes more unique and exciting.
It not only adds new mobs and animals to the game but also introduces various new structures that you can use and explore. It will certainly spice up your Minecraft world if you decide to give it a go.
And that was our guide to the best Minecraft mods! Hopefully, you’ve now got an idea of which mods to choose when modding the game.
