If you’re like me, then you absolutely hate the vanilla minecraft mod. It’s so bland and has way too much clutter. That is until I stumbled upon the new default style. It was so much better, and I have to say, the difference was immediate. So, if you’re stuck with vanilla, try the new default style, I guarantee you’ll love it.
This is the pack that I downloaded, and honestly I have to say, it is by far the best. I mean, look at all the different rooms, items, decorations, etc. Everything just looks so nice! Just like the real thing. I know I didn’t like vanilla when I first installed mine, but after messing around with the default, I have to say that I like it a lot.
The one downside to this new default style for Christmas is that there aren’t many updates. But that’s not really a big deal, because the mod is superb. If I had to choose between the two, I would definitely choose the new default style. It’s just that I don’t think there are as many people that like the vanilla as I do.
I like the fact that this mod provides a list of all the ingredients in the game. It also shows you where they can be gathered. It tells you what they are, and sometimes what to do with them. For example, you should collect all the gold nuggets in the world and then combine them into golden nuggets.
I especially like the fact that you will receive a Christmas message when you’ve crafted something. And if you don’t have enough wood for your craft, you get the “too many trees” message. I also really like the way the cooking skill gets modified by the amount of food you’re putting into your cauldron. Food in the cauldron gets more expensive.
I don’t think anyone has ever complained about the fact that they had to grind coal before they could cook it. This mod improves on that. Also, I really like the fact that the default food has a much better taste than the food you get if you grind coal. The only thing is that sometimes you have to get rid of some coal.
One major thing I like is that you no longer have to pick up your sword when you’re mining. You have to put it on your back, and this makes it harder to aim when you’re sneaking around. The mod gives you a one-handed sword, so you can pick up your sword and sneak at the same time. Very cool!
All in all, this is a very nice mod. The biggest thing is that I think you need to add the textures to make them look more realistic. Otherwise it looks very “cartoonish”.
