While default Minecraft is an incredible experience, players who have been playing a long time might be getting bored waiting for the 1.17 new update.
Luckily, there’s an extensive number of well-made Minecraft Mods for you to spice up your gameplay.
But which ones are best? Here’s our list of mods for May 2021.
7. Pixelmon Generations
Not the first Pokémon Mod to be made on Minecraft, but certainly a great one for Pokémon fans and people looking to add more richness to Minecraft's already giant world.
This modpack changes the game entirely, adding new mechanics, features, NPCs, and (of course) Pokémon. It's a must-play for any Pokemon fans.
Find it here.
6. Biomes O’ Plenty
Biomes O’ Plenty is the answer for any gamer a little tired of the standard Biome diversity in Minecraft.
This mod adds a significant 75 new biomes to explore, use, and, most importantly, destroy.
Biomes O’ Plenty adds enough to diversity to make sure you won’t be in the same place for too long.
5. Crafting Dead
Crafting Dead is another game overhaul, but instead of catching Pokemon, you’re fighting zombies.
This multiplayer mod takes survival in Minecraft to the next level, adding features like character customisation, new items, and even guns.
If you’re looking for a thrilling experience to play alone, or with friends, this mod might just be perfect.
Mystcraft is a great answer for players who want to travel between their current world, and new worlds. This mod adds a feature called ‘Linking Books’ that allows them to create, and travel to new dimensions, including the vanilla dimensions Minecraft already has.
These dimensions can be simple, and similar to the one you’re already in, or they can be dangerous, unstable maps made of floating islands and crumbling ruins.
This modpack adds the spice players crave to those pesky long-established Minecraft worlds.
3. Pam’s HarvestCraft
Pam’s HarvestCraft modpack overhauls the food and farming mechanics already present in Vanilla Minecraft.
This modpack rebalances the food while adding new ways of using it, and growing it. To be exact, this modpack adds 80 new crops, 6 garden bushes, 50 new fruit or item bearing trees, 19 new fish, a simplified Beekeeping, and over 1400 new items and foods.
It is extensive, and very much worth your time if farming is something you enjoy.
2. The Aether II
The Aether II modpack adds a whole new world made of floating islands. The aesthetic isn’t the only thing that’s changed though, this mod also adds new NPCs, structures, dungeons, and even NPC settlements.
At its heart, it’s an interesting change to the core gameplay Minecraft provides and adds hours of fun.
A minor, but well-needed addition to your Minecraft playthrough. Waystones adds the ability to teleport to different areas instantly. You can travel to them from other Waystones, or even travel to them via one-use scrolls and Warpstones.
Good for survival and adventure playthroughs.
And there it is. Some of these mods significantly change the game, while others just add little quality-of-life changes we all didn’t know we needed.
