So, the opposite day, a streamer I watch and adore named KingArgaroth (Twitch/Twitter) opened up a Minecraft Server for his Twitch Group – and due to that, I bought again into Minecraft! It’s been lots of enjoyable and because of the mods and the neighborhood, I’ve been having a blast with my time on this blocky insanity… Right this moment, I needed to speak a bit about my expertise with that!
Be aware: The screenshots listed below are simply there to be fairly they usually don’t correlate to what I’m speaking about… principally. I didn’t actually take into consideration taking screenshots as we had been doing sure issues, so I simply took some right here and there as time went on. Additionally, a few of these had been taken with totally different shaders from others. Therefore, there could also be some variations right here and there when it comes to lighting high quality and whatnot.
The server is working model 1.19 of Minecraft however with mods. Whereas I’ve been considerably enthusiastic about 1.19 and whereas I’ve been wanting ahead to taking part in it myself, I haven’t actually managed to get into it in any case. I attempted to play it right here and there, however none of my makes an attempt to get into it succeeded. I used to be at a little bit of a loss. Had I already grown uninterested in Minecraft regardless of not having performed it in years?
Anyhow, quick ahead to now, and I’m actually having fun with it. I consider that the truth that I can play it with individuals I do know and associates I made alongside the voxel-based means actually added to my enjoyment of the sport. Taking part in it alone or having to discover independently is type of boring – at instances, even irritating.
As at all times, I spent hours looking for iron (of all issues) however to no avail. The best way it generates now’s considerably irritating if you happen to can’t discover any mountains. However due to associates, I bought to get some iron instruments early, discover my very own stash, and mainly pay them again for no matter they gave me (and a few additional).
We assist one another out at instances and provides recommendation. Some individuals I hang around with have performed lots of it already prior to now, similar to me. Others are fully new to it, so I kinda really feel obligated to maintain them. I bought an infinity bow for one of many newbies in addition to a spyglass. Isn’t that fancy?
And effectively, there’s the mods as effectively that we’re taking part in, I suppose, that not solely make it extra enjoyable and thrilling to exit into the world and discover all the brand new biomes and constructions… however it additionally provides a bunch of high quality of life options that I might like to see in Vanilla Minecraft.
“Higher MC” is a mod pack that principally provides high quality of life stuff… and in addition new mobs, gadgets, blocks, furnishings, biomes, constructions, and 5 entire dimensions. What’s extra is that the Finish and the Nether are each overhauled, that includes loads of nice new gadgets that make exploring these locations all of the extra thrilling – and harmful!
After Mojang scrapped the Birch Forests and the Fireflies due to some foolish causes, I used to be amazed at how a lot these additions added to the environment of the sport. There are particles within the air that make the sport really feel far more alive (leaves falling down, waterfalls creating foamy particles on the water floor, mushrooms releasing spores, and so forth.). On prime of that, foliage piles will be discovered sitting beneath timber which is extremely cute! There are additionally twigs and rocks on the bottom which you can merely decide up and use in crafting… fairly nice!
One factor we did the opposite day was this kind of “temple” or pagoda that was crammed with enemies that will crawl on the ceiling or spawn en masse, placing us into some extremely precarious conditions, even. These enemies paired with the growing problem of every ground posed as an actual problem however after a number of hours of going at it as a crew of 4, we finally managed to not solely gentle up the entire place however to additionally take off with lots of fairly darn nice loot!
There are different locations on the earth that I needed to problem however for now, I really feel like I had sufficient of “raids” and fight, haha.
After that night time, I attempted to simply dedicate myself to my base of operations (positioned on this kind of dome-looking constructing that was generated into the world solely to then get modified by the likes of me) and a few extra buildings. A buddy settled down into the Cherry Blossom Forest within the valley beside my mountain, so I spent about seven or eight hours build up this kind of “means”/staircase right down to her. It’s not solely there to attach the 2 of us (particularly because the “waystones” make it fairly simple to maneuver between her base and mine) but in addition for the sake of immersion. How do individuals hike up there? Wouldn’t it’s pure for individuals to construct a staircase into the mountain? Possibly wooden is much less pure however nonetheless!
As soon as carried out, I began to develop my storage because the few barrels I’ve are considerably limiting. I dug beneath the bottom, adorned the partitions, and began to put down chests and whatnot. Since I now have a little bit of a basement, I used to be additionally interested by presumably getting a bee setup within the glass dome upstairs and dealing on some smaller initiatives, like a tower or whatnot to develop upwards…
All of the whereas, I may construct up small semi-automatic and even automated farms within the basement to generate moss, bamboo, sugar cane, cactus, or different gadgets corresponding to bonemeal. I consider that that might be fairly enjoyable and I’m wanting ahead to engaged on some methods down beneath.
Given the variety of newbies we’ve got on the server, although, we are able to’t simply storm into the Finish and Nether and automate every thing, so I ought to in all probability additionally maintain off on Villager Buying and selling and Iron Farms (in addition to different overpowered mechanics) as these may destroy the expertise for these new to the sport…
However total, I’m glad I can mainly construct one thing up and type of stay out my imaginative and prescient of this place right here. I’ve lots of plans for my mountain and because of the abundance of assets and wooden varieties (in addition to different blocks!), I’m capable of construct up some comparatively fairly constructions, which has felt fairly nice and lots much less demotivating.
Should you wanna take a look at the mod your self, I like to recommend grabbing the “CurseForge” Modlauncher. It makes it lots simpler to get mods put in and whatnot… There you’ll be able to merely seek for a mod pack named “Higher MC” by SHXRKIE. Should you play it multiplayer, chances are you’ll have to inquire about what model it’s. Both means, it’s fairly easy and simple to make use of. With how lacklustre the “Wild Replace” has been, I’m actually very happy about the truth that “Higher MC” exists.
This put up was first revealed on Indiecator by Dan Indiecator aka MagiWasTaken. Should you like what you see right here and wish to see extra, you’ll be able to test me out on Twitch and YouTube as effectively.
