Top 10 Best Minecraft Mods
5. OptiFine HD_B
This mod adds HD texture support, as well as other options that improve visuals and performance. It features FPS boosts, smooth lighting, VSync, fog control, mipmaps, increased view distance, and more.
You can never have too many items. Maintaining its #4 spot since the original list, this mod allows you to create items in-game, save and load entire inventories, create unlimited stacks and tools, and more.
3. Mo’ Creatures
As this video of the Yogscast playing this mod demonstrates, Mo’ Creatures adds more creatures to the game. Kitties, mice, rats, deer, “big cats,” “lil’ fish,” dolphins, sharks, werewolves, bears, wolves, ogres, ducks, boars, bunnies, birds, foxes, horses, and more. Dropping one spot since our first list, this mod remains a classic.
2. Single Player Commands
This mod is evergreen, rising a spot on our list. It adds dozens of commands you can enter into a singleplayer game to do such things as turn player damage on/off, set the speed at which you move, or teleport to the spawn point. The video above demonstrates many of the available commands.
