Five Minecraft Mods That Add a Ton of Features.

Minecraft took the game world by storm when it came out. In fact, it's easily one of the most popular games in the world now, even almost a decade after its initial release. Its gameplay loop, creative potential, and most importantly, its modularity, makes it one of the most popular targets for modding in gaming history. Many of these mods add more mechanics or straight up change its genre, but here are a couple of mods that simply augment the base game.
5. Pam’s HarvestCraft 2 – Trees
Trees in vanilla Minecraft are rather plain. The list of things you can actually use them for is tiny, and you pretty much grow them for the wood. HarvestCraft 2 aims to change that by giving you 49 new trees, all of which grow in their own biomes and all having new things for you to harvest. Some of these are just old items, like apples, but others are unique, such as oranges, cherries, peaches, and even bananas. This mod will also add brand new food items that you get from cooking all these new items.
4. Sophisticated Storage
Out of all the blocks in Minecraft, the storage chest is one of the most important. However, they're also rather basic. They just hold stuff for you, and that's that. However, Sophisticated Storage aims to improve their space saving capabilities. There are a couple of versions of chests that you can tell apart by their coloration. To make each chest, you need to craft the base level and then level them up with a special material. On top of that, you can install an automatic smelter and automatic smoker in them. The quality of life this provides is immense.
3. Blockling Collection
Mobs are added once in a blue moon in official Minecraft, and a ton of mods aim to change that. Blockling Collection is no different, adding a ton of little block shaped animals to the world to be your friend. The usual Blockling only needs a simple apple to be tamed, and once they're tamed, they will follow you around and attack anything that attacks you.
There isn't a cap to how many Blocklings you can have tamed at once, so you can also tether them to posts to keep them under control. And best of all? There are over 700 different Blocklings, and not all of them are tamed via apple. Some of them only eat iron, and some even only eat bluestone. The richness provided by this mod is outstanding.
2. Furnace Mk2
Similar to the storage chest, the furnace is also one of the most important blocks you can craft. However, if you're tired of making a giant super-furnace network, then you should take a look at Furnace Mk2, which will expand the functions of the base furnace. Once you right click on them, you'll quickly notice that there are a bunch of extra slots on the side, which you can slot various upgrades in. To help you get acclimated, the mod comes with a recipe book that tells you all the information you'd possibly need, such as which items can be smelted, how many of them you can smelt per fuel source, how much XP you get from them, and more.
1. Villager Recruits
Villagers are the only friendly NPCs available to you, but they're pretty useless on their own. They're very much there to be protected by you. Villager Recruits aims to change that by providing different combat professions for the villagers, giving them the ability to defend themselves and you. You can also command them to go out and raid a certain location or focus down a specific enemy on top of just defending your home. This upgrades villager use to a massive extent and you can now use them whenever you need to.
