Tired of communicating with your friends using dumb old texts? Wishing you could express your self using other means? Then Emotes mod might just be your thing.
Created by username Vazkii, emotes is a fun mod that enhances player interaction in minecraft by adding funny animations such as dancing, waving, facepalm(ing), and a lot more.
Currently, the mod has 20 emotes that you and your friends can use. To use them, all you need to do is type in “/emote list” and press the emote you want to do, or you may just use the command /emote [action].
The mod is both for multiplayer and singleplayer, although that it is obviously meant for the former.
What I love about this mod is the simple animations like waving to say hi, cheering, clapping, pointing, saying yes and no (without words), and other animations that are crucial for interacting with the community.
Hilarious animations like doing air guitar solo, dancing Gangnam Style, and playing like a zombie are also present.
Sadly, due to Minecraft’s current limitations, the mod’s animations will not work if you have other mods that alter animations.
The Emotes mod is fairly new, and it does have plenty of room for improvements. For one, hot keys or a graphical user interface would be helpful.
Although you may not stop or cancel an animation mid-way, you may still be able to move or perform vanilla actions without any problem.
The mod is also tagged as “open-source”, this means that the community can take part in the mod’s progress either directly or by other means.
Overall, Emotes is a fun mod to mess around with in multiplayer and it does add a lot of value in immersion and multiplayer interaction, but the mod is almost useless in singleplayer. Nonetheless, this mod is a must-try. I am personally looking forward to the mod’s growth.
