Based on an older mod by d00dv4d3r, the Ruins mod adds a huge sense of adventure to Minecraft by putting in tons of randomly generated structures like houses, temples, and even castles in the sky.

Ruins (4)

The sheer amount of ruins available with this mod is incredible and will never leave you bored. Every structure is detailed and has many different elements for you to explore.

Ruins (7)

Ruins (6)

Some ruins can be dangerous or seemingly random…handle wisely!

Ruins (9)

The coolest part about this mod? With a little extra work (information can be found on the forum page) you can implement your own random structures, or import other people’s structures into Minecraft.

    • If you go into world settings, it shows texture and behavior packs. All you have to do is tap on it, and press add. Make sure all of the required files are in the correct folders. To learn how to install mods, please refer to the installation guide.
