What is a Minecraft mod?

In Minecraft, mods are changes to the game that more or less drastically change the way you play. They can totally disrupt your game by modifying its gameplay, adding creatures or new mechanics.

Via our page which references many mods , you will be able to discover all kinds of them, some of which can help you to retain crafts ( Just Enough Items ), to immerse yourself in a fantastic universe (The Middle Chunk), to teach you the art of magic ( Blood Magic ), and more.

If the purists prefer Minecraft Vanilla (that is to say without mod) or weakly modded, others, on the contrary, swear by an adventure embellished by the presence of many huge mods, adding dimensions, new adventures, even systems to automate the most thankless tasks on an industrial scale. So much so that Minecraft, more than a game, then becomes a malleable medium from which great things can emerge.
