SevTech: Ages Minecraft Mod is a modification for the original Age of Empires game. The mod adds new civilizations, units, buildings and technologies to the game, in an attempt to make the gameplay more interesting. While some might find this a bit of an exaggeration or an unjustified step, others will probably see this as a valid innovation that lifts the experience of playing an Age of Empires game to a new level.
So what makes this mod so different? For one, it implements a resource system that rewards players for collecting resources and building up their cities. One can gather more resources by having more people work on mining, creating factories and researching new technologies. Players can also get bonuses for trading with other civilizations. Overall, this means that one will be able to amass a bigger wealth within a shorter period of time, allowing them to build up their cities faster and spend that money on technology rather than spending it on units.
Of course, one might argue that there are enough resource packs available for Age of Empires II that such elements are redundant. Such a point is, however, debatable. Age of Empires players can easily collect all the resources they need, even without spending any money. Moreover, such elements make the game much more challenging, something that most players do not want to do. Hence, SevTech: Ages Minecraft Mod introduces a balancing act between realistic objectives and challenges while still providing players with enough content and replay value to satisfy any modding community.
Another thing that makes this mod interesting is the interface. Unlike most mod tools, this one presents a nice interface that does not unnecessarily complicate the player. It is also very easy to install and use. What’s more, it comes with various cheat codes that allow players to change strategies, units and buildings for a more personalized experience. All these things combine to make this a very convenient to use and enjoyable to play mod.
One of the greatest things about this mod is its ability to introduce new players to the age-old competitive mode without being too competitive itself. Instead, it introduces a more tactical turn-based style of play where each player competes to earn money by building villages and earning various resources. The money, however, comes from the player’s efforts rather than the actions of other players.
Each player starts with a couple of building recipes that can be used for structures such as farms and cities. They can also expand their empires by researching new technologies. They can also get special items that can transform their empires into more advanced ones. And, of course, players can trade with each other using special trading posts.
