Mods for Minecraft 1.8

Discover some of the wonderful mods for Minecraft version 1.8. These will make your Minecraft world even more fascinating to explore by adding a whole bunch of new functionalities, items, blocks and even new landscapes.

Tinkers construct

Tinkers Construct is a mod that adds a new progression system into the game and many new progression tiers of Minecraft tools and weapons. The mod offers a unique experience by creating custom and special tools from parts. The player can make those parts from different materials. Every material that can be used for crafting now has unique effects. Those effects vary from the durability of the finished tool to the effects which completely change how the tool works. The ability to combine multiple parts for your tools creates almost infinite possibilities. Every tool then can be upgraded to get similar effects like enchants from vanilla Minecraft. The mod offers a custom-created way of crafting those items. Your first steps will require you to create the first patterns, which allow the creation of basic and limited tools. The next milestone is the creation of a huge multi-block structure called smeltery. You can use it for smelting metallic ores into more advanced metal parts with better durability and many other effects. The mod offers a lot of customization in the config file and a lot of integration into other mods, which adds even more replayability and uniqueness.  Note: Mod requires Mantle to work!



Shatter is a mod for Minecraft which has a creative Death Animation when you kill a mob you get a slow animation of the mob fading out and floating and their body parts separating. The effects are quite different on each mob. The Blaze seems to have very good animation, but others such as the Zombie horse also have good animation. The mod is client-side only which means that you can play with it on a server without the mod installed and still get the effects (In fact it warns you if you try to run it on a server.). The mod is also compatible with OptiFine, putting it ahead of many other rendering mods which do not work with Optifine. The mod still works even if a mob is killed by another mob, the animation will still show up. The drops show up as normal and the mob just fades away and does not affect the game in any way that could make it incompatible with servers the mod also works on players meaning you can see your enemies fade away after they die while playing on a server (though the other players will not have the same animation and it is cosmetic only). This mod is for MC Forge 1.16.5 and requires iChunUtil (Don’t let that scare you away though, lots of other great mods use it). The animations do seem to have some drawbacks though, the animations are a little basic, sometimes the fading mob will just get pushed back and fade away with little moving of their body parts, and in general, the animation does not do much unless you like the animation a lot. The animation works on some modded mobs, but not all, such as it did not work on Chaos Awakens or Lycanites, and the mobs from these mods just instantly disappeared with not even the original vanilla death animation. It is likely mods need to manually integrate themselves with this mod. In the vanilla game, not all mobs seem to be fully affected by the animation (and just use the normal death animation), and baby mobs and bosses require you to enable the animations for them in the config, or else they also use the normal death animation. The death animation can also be a bit of a distraction in some cases. But if you like the death animation and want to play on 1.16.5 Forge it may be a good choice, especially if you have a ghost server. They also have 1.16.1, 1.15.2, 1.12.2, 1.10.2, 1.8, 1.7.x, and 1.6.4 versions if you want to play on older versions. This is a very good lightweight vanilla+ mod. The animations are quite similar to those in the Morph mod and the 2 mods are made by the same person, and Shatter has integration with the Morph Mod. If you get this mod you would probably also want to check out a few of ohaiiChun’s other mods, as they have lots of other good vanilla plus mods to enhance your game.
