Hello! I am KittyBlu_ and today I'm talking about mods.
As you may know mods are extensions for minecraft that adds more mobs or other stuff, But nobody uses them anymore.
Why? Well here are some of my reasons why.
  • Not enough original content:
If you look at the mods for 1.12 then you may know that most mods are fighting types. I'm not saying their bad but too much of the same genre is being spread, If there was more different genres then people would start using them again.
  • Outdated.
Look. If you go on a minecraft mods page for a modern version, You will see theirs barely any mods. Most mods on there are shaders or furniture.

Thanks for reading, Remember. This is my opinion, You can complain about it if you want.

Well having talked to modders I have found out that a significant change in minecraft's base code occurred from 1.7.10 to 1.8 onwards therefore many modders have found it quite difficult to update their mods without making changes that are short of rewriting the mod altogether as a result a lot of mods have become firmly stuck in 1.7.10

not only that but various modding resources modders used to rely on have also ended up falling out of date which only serves to make the updating process more difficult . As a result I use the profile system to play modded minecraft and up to date regular minecraft interchangeably.

Usually people complain why there aren't new mods for old versions, really.

I totally disagree, mods are awesome, there are some quality original content mods everywhere like quark, thinker's construct, biomes o plenty .........., not abusive content like orespawn, don't generalize your opinion (you said "everybody" right? ). don't look for mods in pmc, try searching in curse forge and you'll be amazed, the mods in this site are sometimes made by kids

also I'm working on a cool mod that revamps all minecraft without changing the gameplay, and I'm helping a friend on a mod that adds more quests to minecraft, instead of just the ender dragon, so quality mods are still releasing.

Just start a server and use spigot plugins. You can modify most everything you ever would want to with Spigot and there plugins or the api you can build your own. I believe Mods are being made less cause

not everyone wants to play a solo game with mods. They want to play with more people and have less

to install. That's why we create servers. So you can load up your world and have as many as you want

connect without having to go and install some extra's. You just login and start playing. Armor Stands and more are already being used as complex mobs and monsters for vanilla MC. So maybe it's not

that modding is dying but it has moved over to modding servers instead.

Well first of all as a modder can say one thing, there is not many mods for 1.12 at least because it's kinda hard to get hang of it and update from 1.11 or 1.10 not anyone has enough time to do it , also yeah you are right in one thing there isn't many original mods that would get some intrest and would be better then other mods.

Also it might be because sometimes latest versions might be unstable and most developers wait until stable version will be out.

Couldn't agree more, there's so many fighting mods. I always think I find good ones then realize that they include a lot of new mobs. Good work though :)

pmc isn't the best place to find mods, and the modding scene for 1.11 and 1.12 is actually very nice, and despite the recent arrival of functions, mods can do so much more than what the base game can do. the bottom line is simply that you shouldn't generalize on what you think is "prevalent"

Eh this is not true at all, your clearly not looking in the right places since just look at the Technic launcher, supports people making their own packs, also has several servers for these packs with literally hundreds of players on some servers
also, i think now with the edition of functions, people are making/playing more vanilla mods.

I think people still use mods, but in 1.7.10. Also pretty short blog, next time you should write a little more, but besides that good blog.

Okay, This is my first blog so most things are wrong.
The quality of mods started decreasing around 2014, when Microsoft bought minecraft...
I don't want to sound rude; however, Microsoft really doesn't have anything to do with Minecraft, besides the fact they bought it. They just help Mojang with getting more updates out, and at faster rates. Mojang is still the only one working on the game's updates, as far as I'm concerned.
Im just saying that the amount of good mods stared decreasing...
What the heck are you talking about? They only recently (2016) acquired Minecraft.
They bought minecraft in 2014...
We need more mods like: Orespawn, Twilight Forest, Aether, ect.

But it's not fair to not let us complain!

Also, pretty short.

it's fine, I trust you, maybe she saw your comment and changed it
I completely disagree as well. There are new mods being created and released every day you just have to know where to looks. Also mods are not outdated it take a long time for a developer to update their mods to the latest version of Minecraft, sometimes it can take up to a year.
I agree with you ;o

The title is a bit wrong, and the content is half accurate. Me, as a mod user, dis-agrees to your statements. First of all, I use mods. Alot of them. Most of them is client-side and mainly to help on multiplayer servers.(I use both forge and liteloader at the same client, plus optifine)

"Not enough original content" and "outdated"
I half agree to the first statement, but not the second one. Not every mod is like that. Most of the original mods I know is always up to date. Let's have an example: Optifine. This mod, as far as Im aware, is always updated. It'll take about 2 - 6 days after version release for it to have a compatible version. And yes, optifine is a mod since it changes minecraft.

There are also rumors about Mojang/Microsoft abandoning the "Java Edition" which we know as the original version of minecraft. If this is true. That means minecraft would be a "Comunity Edition". Which then means it'll be based on mods. This would just make 90% of clients be modded

I hope you get some info from my feedback.

Just a friendly review,

´╗┐´╗┐Here's a diamond for your blog
They are abandoning java edition!
I actually think this might change some things about java edition, in a good way!

Not really the "main". The reason why they bought minecraft is to make money from it. So they force players to Windows10 edition. Although minecraft "java edition" would still receive updates, it'll still be renamed to "java edition" and will rename windows10 and console's minecraft into "minecraft" which means it'll be the main focus
