Minecraft: Introduction to mods and textures
Minecraft is a game with little narrative and no set goals, developed by Markus Persson in 2009. Players are put in a randomly generated world with square tiles composed of different materials such as wood, dirt, stone, etc. Where these tiles meet new ones will generate depending on the material below them which can allow for interesting natural structures to be formed. These structures are procedurally generated, which means that they are formed based on rules stored into the game that determine how they are built.
These structures often have realistic foundations composed of stone, dirt or other materials found at ground level in real life. Dirt is one of the most commonly used materials because it’s available almost everywhere and is easy to work with.
Players can break and remove blocks they aren’t standing on and these blocks will disappear and drop anything they might contain. Tools, food and weapons can be crafted from raw materials like wood found in the environment. These tools allow for faster mining and better harvesting of resources when used correctly. It’s possible to play alone but it’s usually more fun to play with friends on multiplayer mode.
This game has no pre-defined goals or objectives, players decide how they want to play the game; do they want to build majestic castles, create new cities or discover hidden treasures? A lot of time can be spent mining underground looking for diamonds and other rare gems while avoiding enemies like zombies and Creepers. There is also an adventure mode where it’s possible to play without the need of any type of shelter but this game mode has enemies that will attack on sight.
Minecraft also features completely destructible environments, allowing players to dig through materials like stone and dirt just as easily as sand if they have the right tools. If not then they might need to find a different way around. There is also an option of breaking the surface and entering the underground world which is composed of more unique materials such as granite, dirt or ores like copper deposits.
Minecraft features an interesting setting which is depicted as having many “biomes” some of which reaches temperatures too excruciatingly hot for normal players to survive in from all the lava.
There are some interesting natural structures that can be found underground, a couple of which have proved a point of interest for players. One of these is a room inside a mountain with a large table and chairs made entirely out of stone bricks just as if they were crafted by human hands. This structure has been theorized as being a hidden room from the original developers who left a secret present for players to find.
Another one is a library filled with empty bookshelves found inside a deep cave, it’s possible that this was used as a test for lighting and environment generation but the result looked too cool not to share with players.
There are some really impressive things built since the release of this game back in 2009. One example is a 1:1 scale model of the Death Star from Star Wars, another one is a near perfect replica of Game of Thrones’ city “Kings Landing”.
The most recent was a huge recreation of the Legend of Zelda’s Hyrule.
Minecraft has sold over 20 million copies and is available on almost every gaming platform. The game has received great reviews from critics and fans, it manages to keep its massive player base entertained with constant updates adding new items, blocks and options for players to use in the game.
One of Minecraft’s most interesting features has been its cross-platform capability; it was announced at E3 2013 that Minecraft was coming to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
This game has just about everything you could want in a sandbox game, it’s really fun and can be played alone or with friends. It comes available on almost every major gaming platform so everyone gets to enjoy it no matter what system they use. If you haven’t tried this game yet, I highly recommend it.
I reccomend you get this game on PC so you can do alot more stuff with mods and texture packs. Here’s also a link that leads to a site on which you can find a list of minecraft servers: https://minebrowse.com/
