What exactly is Minecraft Modding? Simply put, it is a modpack which converts an existing mod pack to use in-game. The best way to describe it is “modding” because it completely changes the game, although it’s very simple and easy. In a way, I believe that it makes the game more fun as well as more diverse because you’re not just using one type of content and setting.
This is a perfect example of how creative people can actually come up with some of the best games on the market today. It all started when one person actually realized that the game needs some improvement. After creating a few changes to the game’s code, they realized that they could add new things to it. The next logical step is, “What other types of content can I add?” That’s where you get into the Minecraft Modding topic.
You might be wondering what types of things are added with this mod. First off, ore can be found almost everywhere in the game. So, instead of using pickaxes to gather the raw material, you actually have to use a shovel to gather it. If you happen to run out of trees and mine really fast, then you need to make sure that you find a vein of iron, since most players will burn through an entire stack in just a few minutes. The problem is, if you don’t know where to find that iron vein, then you might never have enough ore to continue playing.
Now, we’ve discussed what ore is used for. However, the next thing that you might want to learn about is what can be eaten with those precious ores! Grinding, smelting and welding are the three primary methods of creating items, along with the addition of books and paintings. But, what if you want to create something cool, unique and not found in the game? Well, you can, and this is the whole ‘modding’ thing, creating items not found anywhere else on the map!
To do this, you should head over to MCM’s forge. The forge is where you go to create custom items and recipes, instead of using a loot generator or the default crafting system from MCM. Since the forge is where you’ll create custom recipes for your world, it also contains all the ores and minerals that are drop-able. You can literally craft the items you want!
But wait, there’s more! There are also several special recipes for food and drink that only can be created with specific ores. There are also several recipes that can only be gotten by visiting a specific town or city. And, on top of all that, there are also several achievements within the game that only are available for players who eat ores! You really can’t ask for more in a game that is so very fun and well-designed. With a game like this, you really can’t lose!
