Minecraft Modding is a very fun activity. The concept of having a “mod” is to add new content into the game. When I first started out I wanted something that added more to the game, I wanted to craft blocks, I wanted to dye my clothes, and I even wanted to put a music track on my computer! I didn’t know what to do at first, but after a few failed attempts I started to feel frustrated with my lack of progress. Then I stumbled across the Persistence Mod.
This is a new version of Minecraft which adds many blocks and items to the game along with many new features. For example, I was able to make a bed with a sleeping bag, so now when I sleep at night I can have a nice warm bed to sleep on instead of just a blanket. Now the blocks are all in their right place, they now look the way they should and the levels have been adjusted so that I am not being swamped by trying to figure out how to make the block type drop. This makes things much more enjoyable to do.
When I started playing this game, I only had a few blocks and no furnaces, it was quite simple because I was only using a pickax. After using the vanilla game for awhile, I wanted to make something more substantial, I thought about getting an oak wood furnace but after researching that I realized that the block would still be too small and not strong enough to push over a horse. After looking around for other types of blocks, I finally found the resource needed to make a chest.
Now I can craft almost every block in the game, so now I can craft more chests and weapons, and even recipes for those blocks! With this perk I can craft almost any block type that is in the game. That is why I love playing the mod, I have so much to do with it.
Another great thing about this game is that you can change the color of your block by using a dye. If you want to get something darker or lighter, all you have to do is dye your block, and in seconds the block will be exactly the color you want. Now I can change my character’s clothing by dyeing my block, because I want to go on a mission, I wouldn’t want to wear a brown shirt because I play a sniper, so I just do the other way.
Overall I love the fact that this mod adds so much to the game, and that I can do so much with the blocks. This game is fun and relaxing, no need to stress out if you just want to relax, this game is perfect for that. This is much better than the first version of the game where you can only dye wool and not anything else, it is fun and I am having a lot of fun playing this version. This mod really expands what you can do in the game. Now I just need to wait for the update to finish and I will have more creative things to do with my world.
