The Minecraft Modpack, created by Pocket edition, is a faithful recreation of the game as seen through the eyes of a survival gamer. Unlike many of the mods available, which are created for the Pocket Edition alone, the Progressive Modpack for Pocket edition takes on an additional goal – that of “ending boss battles”, as they state in the title. When I first saw this, I was quite under the impression that such a feature wouldn’t be possible, and it was quite the contrary. However, after further inspection, I found out that this is the very feature that makes the mod so popular. I will go into details of how the mod works, and how you can get started creating your very own boss battles with it.
The primary goal of the mod is to replicate the game experience as closely as possible. This means that all mobs, players, and decorations are resizing to fit the scale of the screen, and that textures are replaced to fit the new version of the game. As a result, the game is as much a work of art as it is a game adapted to the Pocket Edition’s unique features. Some of the more popular additions include boss portraits, which are made to look as though they were designed by a professional artist, as well as custom music played during game play. Another very important addition is that the game now includes an overhauled inventory system that will allow players to hold up to 5 thousand items.
Boss battles are the most unique aspect of the mod. Players are spawned into a certain area, surrounded by a variety of obstacles. Once the player comes out of the block, a certain amount of “health” is depleted, and a boss is spawned. Bosses do not die instantly like normal monsters – they simply stand still and can be targeted by other players. The only way to defeat a boss is to kill all of its allies.
Due to the nature of the game, only one player is allowed to control a mob at any given time. This is why there is no form of “moderation” used in the game. It is up to the player to decide which moves to make and which to avoid. The only two rules that the mod puts into place are: you can only pick up an item while using it and you can block an enemy from moving. These two rules, along with the hundreds of ones that players come up with on their own, provide for an incredibly exciting game to play.
One thing that the Minecraft mod has that most other similar games don’t be a World Map. If you want to get lost, you can just follow the walls and find your way. You’ll also find a lot of different biomes and caves to explore. The World Map itself is drawn in a style inspired by OS X’s desktop environment – it looks like something out of a fantasy cartoon. It’s an excellent way to learn about the game without having to spend hours trying to figure out how to get past one particular part of the level.
Despite its simplicity, the Minecraft mod is one of the best-designed mods on any computer these days. The code has been strictly maintained since its conception, so you know that every time you load up the game you will be playing it like a boss. And that’s good, because the bosses of this game are some of the hardest enemies in the game. They can kill you in a matter of seconds. It’s a great feeling knowing that the person who programmed the game thinks of his or her enemies as real people, all with their own thoughts and attitudes.
