Minecraft Comes Alive

Minecraft is in no way a soap opera in which you are the main character. But wouldn’t it be cool if it could be? Minecraft Comes Alive is a hugely detailed mod that turns your Minecraft experience, both single and multiplayer, into an RPG in which you can interact with villagers in a whole new way. Villagers take on personas and have interactive dialogue to make the world seem a bit more personable and less like you’re visiting a foreign land and don’t understand the language. The villagers now have their own unique looks that often match with their jobs and duties within the village and they make the world seem a bit more diverse than before.



Villagers are either males or females who look and act like humans. You can interact with them in a lot of different ways, like chatting, asking them to follow you, asking favors, and trying to be romantic! When you right click on them, you’ll be given a set of prompts to choose from. You’ll also notice some extra details about them like what their name is, how much health they currently have, what their mood is, and what sort of traits they have. These can be helpful in improving relationships with them or to let you know if you’re actually ruining those relationships.


And with this mod you can use those features to set what kind of relationships you want to establish with the villagers. This is where you can insert your own personality into the world around in and some players might like to to be helpful and others simply want to watch the world burn. Your character will develop his or her role in the village depending on how you choose to have them act. This is similar to how villagers currently act when you help or hinder their community but with this mod you’ll have a wider range of personalities to interact with.


You can marry villagers if you get your relationship high enough as well. Married couples can have children who will do many chores for you. This can be a great way to automate some of your daily tasks but by giving responsibilities to your own family and not simply relying on complex machinery. Your children can help plant as well as harvest crops for you and they can even join you in the mines to help you mine for items. They can even hunt down and locate ores for you so they would be very handy in strategic mining operations! In single player as well as in multiplayer servers, you can marry other players and have children with them too!

But most importantly be careful how you deal with villagers if you want to eventually court them. You wouldn’t want to mess up your chances of a healthy relationship! If you’re looking for positive relationships and to not be the enemy of the village, help these villagers out and build stronger communities. They will benefit you much more in the long run if you do and of course on the opposite end of the spectrum they will certainly remember the last time you took a swing at one of them.


And with this mod there’s even a hardcore mode that gives you a top-secret feature. Play the mod and find out what it is! You should install this mod if you are a fan of games like the SIMS and other life simulators, or just really like developing relationships with people. And the best part? You can still interact with villagers as you could in unmodded Minecraft! Trades and other interactions still work normally.

This mod does require an additional API installed found here.

  1. This mod really makes minecraft come alive!

    August 13, 2014
    • The secret is that you can be one of your kids I think!

      December 29, 2014
      • If you die you become your child

        November 21, 2015
        • Oh I Did not know that about this mod!

          July 3, 2020
    • Is there gonna be babies?

      April 29, 2015
      • Of course there will be. The other versions have the option to make kids, so they will definitely add kids in MCA.

        May 16, 2015
        • Yes did you read the thing?

          July 3, 2020
      • Yes

        September 26, 2016
    • I Know Its Good But Were Do You Find The Villigers I Came Across Just Normal Villergers The Minecraft Ones

      August 9, 2017
    • Thank you so much. I’m going to ask for permission to download this mod to play Minecraft and make it more fun! (P.S., my sister wants it too!)

      June 23, 2018
  2. it will not let me install it i installed other mods but this one wont let me. but i heard it is a good mod

    September 14, 2014
    • it might not work with the other mods

      July 7, 2015
  3. Any news on when it will be available for 1.8? I fell in love with this the moment I saw it, unfortunately I was already updated to 1.8.0 when I did

    October 12, 2014
    • You can always change to a later version of minecraft. When you open minecraft at the bottom left corner it should show a drop bar click it and from there click edit and change the version from 1.8 to like 1.7. Let me know if it worked for you <3

      December 20, 2014
      • But what if you have built everything in 1.8 and once you change it from 1.7 to 1.8 all over again, won’t it reset?

        May 16, 2015
        • Nope. Your worlds transfer over even when you change versions.

          August 17, 2015
        • No, but if you have blocks or items that don’t exist when you go to a previous version, you lose the item(s). I found that out when I reverted from the combat beta and lost my shield.

          September 3, 2016
  4. My Child is always mad and runs away. Also, Wife will not attack aything except zombies. Sometimes she will use sword sometimes not. Very glitchy over all

    December 1, 2014
  5. This mod rocks. If only there was a better API for the female characters. And i would suggest that you make the NPCs a tad bit smarter. Hope to see more updates on this mod. Happy coding.

    December 24, 2014

    July 8, 2015

      January 23, 2016

    September 13, 2015

  21. hi! i was just wondering is there a way for villagers to marry each other? love the mod btw!

    May 29, 2017
    • Yes there is. With the arrangers ring. You get two villagers next to each other and then gift the two arrangers rings to one of them. (You need 2 arrangers rings) and how to make 1 arrangers ring is like a chest but with iron ingots.

      July 25, 2017
  22. I checked this out and strangely, even though i achieved 5 golden hearts and tried to get engaged, they all said this: “….I see that ring on your finger!” even though I was not married! What’s up with that?

    April 17, 2018
  23. I couldn’t divorce my husband, but when he died, I couldn’t marry someone else. Help?

    October 1, 2018
  24. i’m trying to build a large village for them but they won’t move into the houses, what do i require per house or what do i need to do to help them make themselves at home.

    December 7, 2018
  25. If used alongside other village mods and the Village and Pillage Update, villages will be perfect. Wonder why Mojang hasn´t thought of adding something like this yet…

    December 10, 2018
  26. You Need To Get A Villagers Hearts Up To 5 (Gold) And Then Gift Them An Engagement Ring. After That, Gift Them A Wedding Ring. You Will Also Receive Gifts From Other Villagers. Hope This Helps!

    January 27, 2019
  27. my kids keeping calling me mom and my wife dad how do I fix this?

    March 11, 2020
  28. I can’t figure out how to get/make an engagement ring. Can someone please help me with this?
