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.DownloadForumInstall Guide
