A new in-game mod by the name of Datapack Compass is now available. This modifies the vanilla MineCraft game and adds a ton of content. It brings the best aspects of the vanilla game into an Minecraft package and makes it much more fun to play. I will go through some of the features of this mod so that you can decide for yourself if it’s for you or not. Here they are:
–You can now craft all kinds of equipments and tools with the help of a Compass Tracker. This is a good mod if you like to collect resources and build up your mining equipment as well. You can even find all kinds of rare items and blocks in the form of tools and recipes that are required for the man hunt, which I think is pretty cool.
–You can now get special mounts from the mod. These mounts can be used by both the player and the mobs. The only downside is that it has been reported that sometimes the mod can cause server crashing due to too many players at one place. However, this is a very minor problem and is very easy to solve. I have also read reviews saying that players are enjoying the new mounts so much, they’ve decided to stick with it.
–You can now get special repeaters to detect enemy player’s signals. This can be used by either sneaking up on an enemy or sending out a signal yourself. You can see if an enemy is sneaking up on you and then send back your own signal to warn them off. These can also be upgraded to deal with stronger enemies. Some players seem to prefer using the simple repeater and then going solo with another tool, but it really depends on the player.
–You no longer need any weapons or other items to play the game anymore. The mod adds in an enchanted backpack that automatically provides you with an iron sword, diamond ring and some food. With these, you’ll not even need to go out and do any quests. It’s more of a role-playing game in my opinion.
I believe the Manhunt Minecraft Modpack adds more fun to the game that what its predecessor had. I haven’t had the chance to try the updated version yet but from what I read on the downloads site, it looks like its pretty stable. I hope the Compass Tracker DATAPacked version will stay the same as the earlier versions. The DATAPacked mod doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of popularity, but it still could use some love.
