SkRayfall is a great addition to the MineCraft series. The mod basically improves on the original mod by adding new features, customizing existing ones and overall making this one of the best mods for Minecraft out there. It also improves upon the current game in many ways. Some of these are detailed below.
One of the most noticeable differences with skRayfall is its skype integration. This feature enables you to chat with other players, just like you would in Skype. Basically, it is like talking to your friends on Skype while mining at the same time. Very cool stuff.
In addition, the mod now includes a whole new world map. There are three main biomes to explore, the Desert, the Rainforest and the Mountain. The biomes are well balanced, so there should be not too much of one and not too little of another. There are also many new things for the player to collect, cook and eat. There are also several challenges for players to do.
One of the coolest additions is skRayfall’s own custom story line. It is written in a very funny voice and carries a very light humor. It revolves around a mining accident where a bunny gets stuck underground. He soon realizes that he needs to use a device that makes him able to see above ground. He soon learns that his neighbors have also been stuck underground and are now trying to come to the surface to find help.
This add-on is great because it helps me learn more about the game while enjoying myself. I love using the various tools and earning the right to mine items that others have built earlier than I have. I especially love the way I accumulate materials to help me build structures such as houses and fences. I’m always amazed at how much easier the game becomes when I have more tools at my disposal.
It would be a good idea for skRayfall to add a couple more maps after launch, especially if they want to sustain the interest of their player base. Currently there is only one map, but I suspect there will be more added as the game grows. For now though, I’m satisfied with the mod. It’s user friendly and easy to start playing immediately after installation. The graphics are crisp and the game play is enjoyable.
