The 25 best Minecraft mods - updated! Now 1.3.2 compatible
Okay, this is just showing off. ComputerCraft adds programmable computers to the game. Using the Lua scripting language, they can automate processes, password protect doors and, bizarrely, play a little Minecraft text adventure. Even cleverer are the robots added in the last update. Give 'em a pickaxe and you can send them to work on your newest construction project. Just try not to program in self-awareness. That never goes well. Download ComputerCraft here.
12. Finite Liquid
Finite Liquid really shows how a mod can evolve and change in scope over time. It started with a simple idea: to replace Minecraft’s unusual water physics with a more realistic system, but more and more features have been added. Now you can pump water, boil water, mine for oil and even construct a scuba outfit for undersea exploration. Download Finite Liquid here
13. Trains and Zeppelin
If there's a type of hobbyist more obsessive than Minecraft fans, it's trainspotters, so Trains and Zeppelin is a potentially dangerous mod. It swaps out the boring old mine carts for a whole bunch of different train types. If you're not convinced by the thrills of running your own transpennine express route, there are also Zeppelins. Something for everyone then. Download Trains and Zeppelin here.
Kaevator stopped supporting his magical diagonal line adding Slopes mod a few versions ago, but it's since been resurrected by the modder MetaDark as SuperSlopes. It's the same deal as before, letting you build sloped roofs and pyramids, but now supports the creative mode's block inventory. Download SuperSlopes here.
15. TNT mod
For when you need to mine on a truly industrial scale, the TNT mod adds a variety of high powered explosives in to the game. Perfect for mining, large scale landscaping or just setting great swathes of the area on fire. I particularly like the way the nuke turns sand into glass. Download TNT mod here.
