Level 60 : High Grandmaster Modder
Say goodbye to those annoying and ugly Testificates! Minecraft Comes Alive (MCA) aims to give Minecraft's villagers an actual use within the game.
  • Villagers are no longer derpy Caveman Squidwards. MCA replaces them with male or female humans with many unique skins.
  • Villagers can be interacted with. You can talk to them, ask them to follow you, set their home, give them gifts, etc.
  • Interacting with villagers builds relationships. Get your relationship high enough and you will be able to marry a villager.
  • You will be able to have children with the villager you marry.
  • Children will grow over time and do chores for you. They will eventually grow into adults who can get married and have children of their own.
  • Playing in Hardcore mode opens a small secret feature.
  • You can marry other players and have children in SMP and LAN.
  • Translated to over 20 different languages.
Much more detailed information can be found on the mod's page on the Minecraft Forums. You do not need an account to download. Listed download only links to this forum page: MCA on the Minecraft Forums

MCA also has a website that hosts downloads, an FAQ, how to play, recipes, everything you'd need to know: MCA Website

Installing mods are truly easy. just install forge, run the forge.jar and a little pop up will come up. Let it complete then go to your %appdata% folder go into .minecraft if there's not a mods folder make 1. (just make a new file called mods) Drag all of your mods into there! Then go to your minecraft launcher, make a new profile (or edit 1) and change the version to the forge version. (it'll be at the bottom of the versions list)

Any way to edit the villagers trading inventory? I'd like to be able to use this on a server, but the server has villager shops and these villagers override them. If there isn't a way, do you plan on making it a feature? It'd be very useful to have it in the villager editor tool

but when he went back into the game everything he was holding including his baby
was gone (his house and everything in it was still there).  Now it says he
already has a baby but the baby disappeared.  Is there anyway to get rid of the
baby that disappeared to have another baby/adopt?  Thanks!
