Brandon’s Core Mod is a complete overhaul of the Vanilla Minecraft Server. It provides players with over 100 brand new items, weapons and armor including crafting resources, recipes and enchantments, plus numerous features not found in vanilla. This is one of the most well thought out and comprehensive mods for Minecraft, if not the best.
I’ve always had trouble understanding and being successful in the Vanilla Minecraft game. I felt that there were so many simple things that got ignored and took forever to do. For example, I didn’t know how to make gold and buy my needed items in the game. Plus, I hated all the grinding, which I was doing way too much of. I needed a new approach to playing the game.
I started looking for other people who shared my same frustrations. Some of them suggested ideas that I eventually incorporated into my own game. Others just gave me the tools I needed to figure things out for myself. The two that changed it for me were Jaded and Necropolis. They showed me how to use the resources and items I already owned to do the job they told me.
They also pointed out some minor things that irritated me about the game but didn’t have any impact on me. For example, when you’re attacked by a mob, sometimes your only option is to back away and let it take your gear and gold. That’s fine, if you’re on level 10. But for others, that’s an annoying bug.
Another great thing I noticed after playing minecraft with Brandon’s Core Mod was that I no longer had trouble finding rare items. They were always scattered around the map, and it was so easy to get killed or find them. Now when I want one, it’s as easy as clicking on it in the world map. And speaking of maps, once I started using minecraft maps, I had a blast, especially since I was able to find rare items within the core areas of the maps without having to travel too far from my home.
All in all, I liked minecraft. It’s much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. But like any other game, there are going to be some people who don’t like it as much as others do. If you’re one of those people, I suggest you give minecraft a try. You never know, you might fall in love with it like I did.
