While Pokemon was always the most popular monster universe, Digimon also had a dedicated following of fans. Today, one modder seeks to bring Digimon into the Minecraft world with a number of different tweaks and additions. This mod is called Digimobs, and it will delight any fans of Digimon.
After installing Digimobs, players can start to explore a new world filled with Digimon, which are monsters from the digital world (i.e. digital monsters). All of the popular Digimon have been added to the game, and each monster has its own unique animations and character models. For a full list of all the Digimon that have been added into the game, check out the official forum thread.
The mechanics of the Digimobs mod will be familiar to anyone familiar with the Digimon universe. Digimon are hatched from eggs using data chips (each egg requires 10 chips in order to hatch). An egg will produce a rookie-level Digimon from a particular Digimon family.
After being hatched, baby Digimon are very weak and require constant protection before they become more powerful. Players will need to tend to their baby Digimon constantly by feeding them and fighting off enemies.
Eventually, Digimon evolve from baby Digimon into rookie Digimon, and then from rookie Digimon into champion Digimon, ultimate Digimon, and mega Digimon.
Digimon will evolve through the use of a Digivice. As Digimon evolve, they get stronger and stronger, and mega Digimon (the highest level of evolution) can be difficult for players to defeat.
Along with a Digivice, there are a number of other unique items that players can craft in the Digimon world, including a DigiCage that can be used to trap, tame, and train wild Digimon. There’s also a DigiRope which can be used to train Digimon, although it’s less effective than the DigiCage and the taming effects will be less permanent.
There are also acorns, chips, cards, tags, crests, and more, all of which help Digimon level and train in different ways. For players unfamiliar with the Digimon universe, there might be a steep learning curve when using these items, but for everyone else, their use will be fairly self-explanatory.
Whether you had fond memories of Digimon growing up or you just want to add a whole new universe into the Minecraft world, the Digimobs 1.3.1 mod can help add a wide range of new and exciting creatures into the game.
