The 1.12.2 Pack: Perfectly Complex 1.16.5 Minecraft mod is by far one of the best-updated and complete packs this game has to offer. This version adds a brand new island, new things, recipes and also some more tweaks on the older content of the game. It is by far the best update that I have personally seen for this game.
When I first loaded up my new island I was immediately met with the beautiful blue sky. This sky had so much detail it really got to me. As I explored further into the game the caves I came across gave me the feeling that there was a lot more to the caves than I had first thought, which was right as I discovered a cave that was way deeper than the rest of them and had a very powerful water pump installed in it.
The mod also included a very cool-looking pirate ship that I quickly used to take down one of the more challenging battleships. After doing this and then taking on another ship that I found on the way back to my main island I felt that I had been given another level to play. The battleship that I fought was no pushover, it made some quick cannonballs with the buccaneer cannon that I had and then just sat there and fired at my island with its plasma shot. By the end of the battle my island had been completely destroyed.
I then decided that I wanted to be a pirate, I knew this because I had seen pictures of the finished ones and they looked very impressive. To go with my new look I chose the buccaneer costume. After putting on my helmet and preparing myself for a battle I headed out onto the water and prepared to face one of the more formidable opponents that Mother Nature gave me. Unfortunately, my opponent was not so evenly matched and I lost the combat and the Mother Nature gift.
The 1.12.2 Pack also includes the Island of Sodor, which is like a large island that you have to travel around in order to gain access to it. The mod also gives you access to the pirate base at Crichton Island which is also quite challenging. The island has some great looking fake trees, the fog is thick and the pirates hide behind trees and this makes it incredibly difficult to attack them from any direction. The island itself also offers some very nice looking items including the wrecked zeppelin, pirate ship and the crashed airplane that are reminiscent of the good old days when aviation was in its infancy.
The mod also provides players with the ability to buy new weapons and armor at a certain station. I got an awesome plasma cannon that comes with an extremely powerful laser. There are also plenty of enemy units to fight and a handful of power ups to use. The mod also provides for player achievements and you can get them by winning battles or capturing a certain number of islands. These points add up fast and are extremely crucial to winning the game.
