Minecraft remains one of the most popular games of all time. The pixelated block mining game allows you to build your own world in a map that is four-times the size of the earth. What makes Minecraft really special is that while the vanilla version is still wildly popular, the game is still very open to mods. More than this, it works extremely well with them, without taking away from the original’s greatness.
Mods allow the player to build upon the existing fun of Minecraft PE, opening up whole new routes of gameplay. There are no typical Minecraft mods. Due to the open nature of the game, mods can take on practically any form. Some add small additional features, like the portal gun mod, while others completely change the dynamic, such as the Too Many Items mod.
The thing is, to install mods on Minecraft PE, you’ll need to first install the BlockLauncher app from the Google Play Store. This app isn’t available on iOS – in fact, modding Minecraft PE is very difficult on iOS altogether, so hopefully you have an Android!
What is BlockLauncher?
BlockLauncher is an app that allows you to install mods on Minecraft PE. You cannot install mods on the original version of Minecraft PE, although you will need that installed on your device in order to use BlockLauncher.
Think of BlockLauncher as a middle-man who allows you to get to the mods that you want to use when playing Minecraft PE. In itself, the app isn’t very interesting, but without it those mods are unreachable.
While you can find the BlockLauncher app on the Google Play Store, you cannot install it on all devices. Some Samsung devices struggle to install the app and anything above Android Jelly Bean will require a root on your device.
This is a problem for some users. Not everyone wants to root their device or go back before Android 4.0 to download an app that allows you to mod a game. That being said, there are many devices that will install the app without any issue, so don’t worry too much about this – as long as you’re using a version of Android before Jelly Bean.
It’s important to note that BlockLauncher isn’t an official product of Mojang, it’s an independently developed app.
What can you do with BlockLauncher?
Once you’ve installed BlockLauncher, you can select mods to add-on to Minecraft PE from the list. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
Too Many Items Mod:
This mod allows you to gain access to infinite resources and items without having to go out and restock. This means that you can build anything and get access to any item without having to go to all the hassle of searching for the resources, crafting the item, and then repeating the process.
This is essentially a cheat mod that removes a fair amount of the challenge from the gameplay. If you’re looking for a more authentic Minecraft experience, then we don’t recommend this, but if you simply want to have some fun and not have to wait around, then try it out!
Minecraft lets you build a whole world of your own. Of course, somewhere in that world you’ll want a little place that you can call home. That being said, the game doesn’t exactly allow you to make a house a home.
With the Furniture Mod for Minecraft, you can decorate your home the way you always wanted it. This gives you a lot more freedom to make your house something that you recognize as home.
Gun Mod for Minecraft:
This is a really cool mod that allows you to gain access to a wide selection of firearms, including pistols, shotguns, rifles, and more. The mod will make you a mob killing machine.
If you’ve ever wanted to shift Minecraft up a notch and turn it into a first-person shooter, then this is the mod for you.
This upgrades the graphics to give you a more exciting Minecraft gaming experience.
