Minecraft Modding, by gamers just like you and me, is a fun and exciting way of creating the ultimate role playing game. This game can be played by almost anyone with an internet connection. Players create their own world and go about building their very own home there. All of this sounds great, right? Well, not so fast!
The Minecraft Mod is actually more than just a “mod.” It is actually a series of add-ons, or rather mods. This means that if you want to get involved in the Minecraft community, you will need to purchase a certain amount of mod-packs from the official team or the creator of the mod. These pack costs are usually very reasonable and you will find that after you have made your first purchase, you will want to get involved in a few different things that help the game and add to it.
Let’s take a look at one of these add-ons, the scoreboard. Scoreboard stats will show the player the direction of all the blocks. This is great because it is a very big part of the learning curve when getting into creative mode. After all, without knowing which blocks you are using to build your home, you won’t know where to go or what to do to make things better.
The scoreboard stats also tell the player how many times they have completed each block. This is great because it helps players determine how much of a challenge they are really facing when they are building their homes. As I mentioned before, when you build in a creative mode, you don’t really see which blocks you need to place, so it is a good idea to track your progress. You will also be able to build faster when you know exactly what you need to do to make your home run smoothly. Knowing exactly what you have to do when you build allows you to complete more of the task at hand, which in turn makes your overall experience more fun and successful.
I mentioned above about how the scoreboard stats work, but there is actually much more information on them. There is a world map within the Minecraft mod that shows how many levels you have completed as well as a time graphic that shows you the time it took you to complete all of those levels. There is also an armor durability indicator that gives players a good idea of how many times their character has been damaged. There are also some blocks that only have one use. These include fences and furnaces that have no replacement value and are simply there for decoration purposes.
With all of this information at hand, I encourage all users of the Minecraft Mod to take full advantage of it. Try setting up the scoreboard stats to display whatever information you think would benefit your game the most. I know that I try to do this whenever I build something new, and it really helps me to get an overview of how well I am doing. You should definitely give the scoreboard an extra thought as well when you start to play with it in build mode. Just wait until you feel that build mode is working well for you before you change anything in the build mode portion of the software.
