Vanilla Minecraft is significantly lacking in terms of camping supplies. There are no tents, traps, or camp stoves to be found. And to make matters worse, you can’t even hunt deer.
Outdoor enthusiasts who want to experience the thrill of camping without ever leaving their office chair can do so with the CampCraft mod for Minecraft. This mod adds all sorts of camping-related features to the game, including:
-New mobs that are often found during real camping adventures, like rabbits, ants, flies, frogs, deer, and polar bears
The trap system is particularly cool. Players can camouflage their traps in the undergrowth. After installing camouflage traps, the ground tiles look completely normal. Once an animal or player walks on these traps, the camouflage disappears and they get caught in the trap. There are 17 different camouflage types in total, making it easy for tiles to blend into any environment.
The tent system also deserves to be mentioned. An Auto Tent can easily be placed by the player anywhere they wish to camp – just click to open or close it. There are 60 different tents in total. Some tents are designed to hold players, while others are designed to hold items and utilities. You can even install a bunk bed in your tent to make it larger.
Building and taking a down a tent isn’t as easy as just pressing a button (unless you’re losing the Auto Tent, in which case it’s exactly that easy). With most tents, players need to smash a special tent hammer around until the structure is complete. Medium and large tents will keep out mobs, but small tents are not completely safe. The mod’s creator recommends players “sleep with a fish to fight the mobs away.”
Meanwhile, smaller features – like the addition of flies – help players fully experience what it means to go camping. And with deer, polar bear, and other critters never far away, you’ll feel like you’re camping in no time at all.
