MAtmos atmosphere mod is one of the best gameplay- changing mods. Gameplay changing mods, unlike game changing mods, will not add blocks or items. Instead, they change visuals or audio. The MAtmos atmosphere will undoubtedly give you the best Minecraft audio experience that you’ve ever had.
MAtmos does more than just add sounds. It adds atmosphere. MAtmos constantly analyzes your location to provide you with the most fitting ambient noises available. When in a forest, you’ll hear birds chirping. On a high mountain, you’ll hear blowing wind. Diving underwater will immerse you in realistic underwater sounds. Underground, you may hear water dripping from cave walls.
Best of all, MAtmos doesn’t stop at the default nature sounds. Its author has created support for plug- ins. The most popular plugin is the Weapon Interactions plugin. This will play sword swinging sounds and bow string- pulling sounds. It makes the game’s combat a lot more immersive.
MAtmos is a must- have mod. It adds to the experience of the game without changing your gameplay. It works on singleplayer and clientside on all multiplayer servers. Download it at http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/379925-181-matmos-r6-environmental-sound-atmosphere-simulator/

Risugami is a famous modder who is most well known for Modloader. Modloader is currently the most downloaded mod, because nearly all other mods run off of it. However, being the java mastermind he is, Risugami did more than just make modloader. Risugami has made many mods, including the Elemental Arrows mod, which deserves a lot more attention than it has.
The Elemental Arrows mod fits in nicely with the vanilla game. The arrows which are overpowered are difficult to obtain, while some of the less powerful arrows will be easy to get. There are five types of elemental arrows:
The fire arrow is crafted like a normal arrow, but with coal instead of flint. The fire arrow will ignite mobs and blocks on contact.
This is crafted like a normal arrow, but using a snowball instead of flint. The ice arrow will freeze water, turn lava into obsidian, or put out fires. It has no slowing effects on mobs, unfortunately.
The egg arrow is crafted with an egg instead of flint. While it was originally a joke weapon, Risugami has added a secret feature to them. When you shoot the egg arrow at a block, it will spawn a chicken. However, the secret is that shooting a monster will transform that monster into a chicken! This means you can effectively get rid of enemies with a single arrow!
The explosive arrow is crafted like a normal arrow, but with gunpowder instead of flint. On impact with a block or mob, it will create a small explosion (about the size of a creeper blast).
The lightning arrow is undoubtedly the most fun arrow in the mod. It strikes lightning wherever it hits, as the title may suggest. Unfortunately, it uses a diamond in the recipe, making it difficult(and inefficient) to use.
This mod also adds the Homing Bow, which is crafted like a normal bow, but with 3 diamonds instead of 3 sticks. The Homing Bow, when shot, will shoot an arrow that will pathfind to the nearest mob (excluding the player, of course). The homing bow can fire any type of arrow.
The elemental arrows mod adds a lot of fun features to the game without overpowering the default combat style or taking away from the vanilla feel of the game. Be sure to download it!

Ever since sticky pistons were implemented, slimeballs have been in high demand. Unfortunately, slimes are extremely rare. This is because slimes only spawn in special “slime- spawning chunks”. Only 10% of chunks are slime spawning chunks, which makes it nearly impossible to find slimes. In the past, people have had to use external programs to map out the slime spawning chunks of their world.
Tools like these require you to exit the game and upload your world files; they completely stop the flow of gameplay. Fortunately, redditor Sir_Tiffy has created a mod that will help a lot of us out.
Crafting a slime compass is similar to crafting a normal compass, with the redstone dust in the middle replaced with an ender pearl (While slimeballs would have been a more logical recipe, the whole point of this mod is to help people who are unable to get slimeballs). The slime compass will point to the nearest slime- spawning chunk. If no slime- spawning chunks are within the render distance, it will spin randomly(such as the vanilla compass in the Nether). Once you are inside a slime- spawning chunk, the red light at the top- left of the compass will turn green. The mod’s author has created a video demonstrating this.
The slime compass mod is great for anyone who wants to craft sticky pistons. This mod is salvage from the currently unfair slime- spawning system. Sir_Tiffy has also created the Death Compass mod, which points to the place you last died. Both of these mods are great additions, and have potential to be implemented in vanilla Minecraft. To download the Slime Compass mod, visit http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/ljpv6/sure_ill_mod_that_for_you_slime_compass/

Since the 1.7 update, I’ve used a mod called “Custom Stuff”. It was created by a user that goes by the handle CubeX2, and it is by far my favorite mod. Customstuff aims to let the average Minecraft player to create their own mods. While Customstuff isn’t able to overhaul game features, create new mobs, or advanced things like that, it still provides a wide variety of features. You can create your own blocks, foods, weapons, tools, and various other items.
One mod I created in the past is called “Ores++”. This section of the article isn’t as much about promoting it as giving an example of all of the features of Custom Stuff. Customstuff lets you not only create blocks, but allow them to naturally generate, so you can create your own ores.
As well as creating blocks, you can also create items. These items can have the features of tools, foods, or weapons if you wish. The mod allows you to create custom crafting recipes and smelting recipes, so I was able to make craftable tools and ores which smelt into ingots. You have full control over all variables, including how fast tools mine and how much food will heal. You can also attach multiple actions to your items, such as changing time of day, spawning mobs, and explode. These actions are also applicable to custom blocks. You can have the actions take place when the block is placed, destroyed, or powered by redstone. One example of these functions being put to use is the “creeper larve” blocks in my Ores++ mod. When you mine one of these blocks, a creeper will take its place. Another block I created was made out of a radioactive material. Once powered by redstone, the block would explode with twice the power of TNT.
You can also create custom armors in Custom Stuff. As well as having the variables you would expect such as durability, there are also some special variables that you can modify which allow special properties, such as fire immunity, unlimited underwater breathing, and more.
While a mod like this only requires a short description, it’s still a huge canvas for anything you may think of. Download the mod and check out user- created mods on its Minecraft Forum Page. (Also, a short note about my Ores++ mod- It is not currently updated to work with Minecraft 1.8, so I won’t be providing a link. If anyone still using 1.7.3 would like to play my mod, please leave a comment and I will provide a link)
