ANALYST

Minecraft mods are a great way to diversify a player's experience. There are mods that can change almost any aspect of the game. Some of them can even make everything circular instead of square.

There are mods that let players play as mobs. Almost anything is possible in Minecraft with these creative additions. Unfortunately for Bedrock players, this nifty feature won't be available to them.

Mods are available across the internet, but CurseForge is one of the top sources to download them. There are plenty of mods here for players to enjoy.

CurseForge currently has over 84,000 mods available for Minecraft. All of these can be found here. There are zombie apocalypse mods, MineShafts and Monsters, Parasites and more. Players can have their pick from this almost boundless repository of Minecraft mods.
