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 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!


You can build relationships (either good or bad) with villagers. Your character will develop his or her role in the village depending on how you choose to have them act.


You can marry villagers if you get your relationship high enough. Married couples can have children who will do many chores for you. In single player and LAN, you can marry other players and have children with them too!

Be careful how you deal with villagers though…wouldn’t want to mess up your chances of a healthy relationship!


Hardcore mode 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 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 requires an additional API found here.

    • And Radix-core

      December 15, 2014
    • I know i don’t understand how to install it

  17. this mod is so coooooooooooooooooooooooool

    September 21, 2014
  18. 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
    • Me too i decided to downoad but my minecraft was updated

      November 2, 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
  19. Awsome

    October 18, 2014
  20. 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
  21. if u go to the profile icon the u can choose the version u want to play minecraft on

    December 7, 2014
  22. 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
    • yeah I’m with u. They can’t even get through A DOOR

      February 13, 2015
  23. This no longer applies.

    January 25, 2015

  26. the secret feature is to be king or queen of the world you’re in

      April 4, 2015

  35. I Think This is Just Weird, But In Some Of the Minecraft Comes Alive Videos I Watched, Villagers Could Write Notes and Break Blocks and Do Stuff and Even Try to Do Things to You! Is This Actually Possible Or Were They Just Faking it?!

    September 5, 2015
    • They could do that because of the Costom NPCs mod

  48. 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

  55. 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
  56. I couldn’t divorce my husband, but when he died, I couldn’t marry someone else. Help?

    October 1, 2018
  57. Can you use name tags on the villagers?

    October 9, 2018
  58. 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
  59. 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
  60. How do you get married?

    December 10, 2018
    • 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!
