5 FUN MINECRAFT MODS! – Top Minecraft Mods for 1.12 (#2)
Hey there! What’s going on guys?! So, last week I created a video called 5 USEFUL MODS for Minecraft 1.12! I mentioned in the video that I want to create more videos like that one in the future, maybe like every week. So I’ve decided for now, unless I come up with some other ideas, to alternate between useful mods and just fun mods. I’ve already created one 5 Fun Minecraft Mods for 1.12, when this version first came out. There wasn’t many mods out at that point but today, I’ve compiled 5 more fun mods for you to try out and maybe add to a modpack or something like that! I hope you enjoy this video! Let’s get started! *Music* The first fun mod I’m showing you today is the Bird Nests mod. Bird Nests is a simple mod that adds a reward for chopping down trees. It is very similar to things like chance cubes in the aspect that you get a random reward each time you use one of them.
However, unlike chance cubes or lucky blocks, this one is a more realistic mod in that, well, the things you will find inside of a nest are some things you may expect to see from an actual nest… and obviously some other random things. You’ll be able to get a nest from any type of generated leaf block.. vanilla or modded and the mod allows you to configure the drop rate! If you were wondering, some of the things you may find in a nest are feathers, sticks, an egg, redston, a diamond, an emerald, some glowstone.. and many other things. I really like this mod because it adds in a perk to cutting down trees and makes that aspect of Minecraft a bit more interesting. And it’s a bit more of a realistic take on things like lucky blocks or chance cubes in that it makes you do something and it’s sort of something that would happen in real life if you were to cut down a tree.
The next mod I have for you today is Roguelike Dungeons. Roguelike Dungeons generates large underground dungeon structures that have a structured layout and, of course, plenty of loot. Originally released in Minecraft version 1.6.4, the creator of this mod, Greymerk, was inspired to create this mod by the super-hostile maps and roguelike dungeon crawlers. The mod adds a number of different types of towers including a jungle tower, and a mountain tower and a number of different rooms including a blacksmith, the mossy level, and more. The multi-tier dungeons add another aspect of MInecraft to explore and a new place to get some loot from.
Personally, when I’m playing with modpacks, these are the types of mods I love to add in. To be able to go and explore a huge dungeon is exciting. It’s just a fun challenge to attempt and that’s really what modpacks are all about, for me at least. In this video you see the desert tower and of course, I go down to the dungeon. You see that there are many stronger mobs like zombies and skeletons. It goes down in tiers with different levels. The mobs drop some decent loot to go along with the generated loot in the chests. You see that my main focus to start is to destroy the spawners to help you my exploration. Next up, we have the Waddles Mod. Now, this isn’t necessarily a fun mod but more-so just a cute and radom mod.
But to me, it’s fun, so you’re just going to have to live with it because I love penguins and I really wanted to show it. Anyways, yeah… The Waddles mod adds in some penguins that waddle around Minecraft. Specifically, they add the Adelie penguins. I probably pronounced that wrong but that’s alright. The mod has realistic sounds and overall just provides a great atmosphere to icy biomes in Minecraft. You may find penguins in the Ice Plains, Cold Beach, Frozen Ocean, Frozen River biomes.. and more! Polar bears were added into Minecraft and give a mob to the icy type biomes that was definitely needed. Now that we have parrots.. I think we need penguins too. This mod gives me those penguins and for me.. That’s fun! Plus the penguin models are very adorable. Especially the babies. Pandora’s Box has been around for a long time. It’s been around since at least 2014, with a 1.mod release back then.
That was the earliest I could find the mod in my quick research of it. It may have been out prior to then but on PopularMMO’s website that’s what I saw. The earliest download on Curse has it for 1.from July of 2014. Anyways, the point I’m getting to is that people have been using this mod for a long time, and well, they’ve been having fun with it for a long time. Whether you already know about this mod or not, I still recommend checking this mod out. The simple-crafting Pandora’s box can be incredibly interesting and, well, destructive. The endless amounts of generated outcomes from the Pandora’s Box will leave you curious as to what’s to come. The suspense is of what this mod will generate is all the fun of it. You just better hope that whatever it generates doesn’t kill you. And maybe you’ll get like a rainbow and lollipop generation. That shouldn’t kill you but it definitely messes up terrain. I need to end off talking about this mod by mentioning that I personally have really enjoyed using this mod for a long time. In fact, back in 2015, I created a video similar to this one for 1.8.
Well, guess what was featured in that video. You guessed it. Pandora’s Box. That wasn’t really a tricky question. But yeah, that just goes to show how long this mod has been around and how fun it can be. We’re gonna end off with some Stupid Things. That’s actually the name of the mod. Stupid Things adds a ton of different items into Minecraft. There is an item catalog that you can craft that will show all the current items in Stupid Things. It can be crafted by combining a book and a block of dirt. So a very easy crafting recipe. Some of the Stupid Things you’ll find in this mod are a block bomb launcher which launches block bombs that spawn clusters of blocks, reverse TNT which pulls in nearby blocks and entities, explosive rails which explode when a minecart passed over it while it is powered, smoke bombs, balloons, water balloons, lava balloons, and deflated balloons, a pet rock, a mine turtle, upside down goggles, a firing can, the world’s smallest violin…
And that’s just to name some of them. Yeah, there’s a lot of Stupid Things in the Stupid Things mod but these Stupid Things are really fun to use in your modded Minecraft world… and well, some of them may not even be that stupid to be honest. Like the improved hoes are actually quite useful.. which really contradicts it being a stupid thing. But yeah this is the Stupid Things mod and it adds SOME stupid things.
Like those upside down goggles… those just give me a headache. What the heck. I mean seriously, why would you even want to use those upside down goggles? They just give me a massive headache. I could just go on and on about why these goggles just give me a headache but I’m not going to do that. They’re just another stupid thing in the stupid things mod.. but that’s what makes this mod fun. What do you think should be added into the stupid things mod? That’s an interesting question. Tons of stupid things out there could be added. Also, how many times have I said stupid things in this video? Somebody should could that. I’m actually really curious. So that’s going to do it for this one guys! Thank you all so much for watching! If you enjoyed, please feel free to check out some of my other mod videos too! Perhaps some day, somebody will end up creating a modpack with the mods I’ve showcased.
That’d be pretty cool. Also, there are plenty of other videos on my channel too, if interested. Obviously, I’m not forcing you to check them out… but please I’m begging. No but really, I hope you found a mod that you think is fun in this video.. If you didn’t, well, stayed tuned for future videos featuring more! Or send me in some mods that you think I should showcase! If you have created your own mod, feel free to send it to me too! Alrighty guys, once again, thank you very much for watching this video! I hope you enjoyed! I’m outta here! See ya!.
