The Minecraft Comes Alive mod for minecraft 1.5.2, is a very unique mod in which is used to implement many interesting features that will change huge aspects of your everyday life in minecraft. Without an accessible server you are basically all alone in your worlds. Often minecraft can become boring simply because of the reason that you’re awfully alone. The mod idea is very unique, and very intelligent. By using such a complicated idea, the mod developer has inserted every planned feature into the mod, and has made it simple, easy to use and extremely efficient. Is not only fun, and interesting to use; but is also very productive and effective for many aspects of day-to-day life. The mod is based around the idea to interact with re-textured, npc villagers. You are able to gain a relationship with these NPC’s and if willing, start a family, Get married and have children.
MCA Main FeaturesEdit
Once this amazing mod has been installed onto your game, (installation instructions will be mentioned at the bottom of this review), you will be granted the ability to meet and begin a new friendship with a villager. Once interacting with the villagers, you will be able to see their name, job, and a few conversation or interaction selections. For example; Chat, gift, and follow are the basic interaction selections that you are given the opportunity to choose from.
When trying to gain a relationship, the mod has been designed to result you with a random outcome everytime. For example, often when you are trying to gain a relationship with a villager by simply chatting to him/her, they may or may not like whatever you have been “talking” about. Unfortunatley the mod is not smart enough to actually let you write your own conversations will an understanding AI. And so, depending on whether the npc enjoys your conversation or the gift that you have chosen to “give”, their relationship status will either increase or decrease. You can see your current relationship status with a npc by right clicking on a selected npc. This will bring up the interaction menu. Up the top of your screen, you will see Hearts: x, where the “x” is, is the number of relationship status. Hearts can range from -100+ to 100+. The Higher the hearts, the more likely you will be able to marry, have kids and enjoy an amusing relationship.
