I’ve always been a (PC gaming) “mod” nerd. One of my favorite things about Minecraft has always been the vast amount of super fun and creative mods that the community has produced of the years. Anyhow for various reasons I recently I got a small itch to try my hand at making a Minecraft mod myself. It was part developer curiousity and part gamer need. Basically for whatever reason Minecraft has never let you actually EAT the eggs you get from chickens in the game – yet in survival mode your player can die from starvation by day 2 or 3 if you don’t find any food. So my mod concept was simply to make eggs edible. Just to be clear – this isn’t a new idea … others have made similar mods or mods that incorporated something around the same lines. However most if not all of those mods are outdated and no longer work.
Anyhow … after tinkering around with things and watching a few tutorial videos by the Minecraft mod genius Mr Crayfish I was able to create my first ever Minecraft mod which I decided to call … “Eat the Eggs!”. By the way Mr Crayfish’s mods and other projects are simply awesome – that guy is an all around genius.
Anyhow … after I got to a good stopping point I posted the mod for others to check out and as of this post ~650 people have downloaded it so far! That doesn’t speak to my mod’s awesomeness by the way it simply speaks to the crazy number of people who play Minecraft and who are also “mod” nerds like me. Either way – very cool! Some kind soul even made a 5 minute showcase video of it! Check it out.
I by no means claim to be any kind of Minecraft mod developer expert now – but I definitely had fun making it and may even try my hand at a 2nd mod soon … we will see.
