When you play Minecraft, it’s pretty obvious that you’re playing a video game. But what if you wanted to make Minecraft a little more like real life? Well, thanks to the Real Life Mod, that’s now a legitimate possibility.
The Real Life Mod adds a number of ‘realistic’ items into the game. And by realistic, we mean items that are commonly found around the home. The items are broadly separated into three groups: food, crafting items, and useless items.
Each item comes with its own unique recipe. Players can craft everything from soft drinks to hamburgers. Some of the food recipes are fairly simple, while others require complex patterns in all 9 grids of a 3×3 crafting square.
There are also a range of crafting items that can be used to build things around the house. Those items include household decorations, furniture, and basic food ingredients, among other things.
The Real Life Mod also adds six new blocks into the game. Although these blocks are meant to represent TVs, computers, and other household items, they’re only decorative. You can’t use them (yet).
This mod is still a work in progress, so don’t expect anything too revolutionary. However, the ultimate goal is to give Minecraft players the ability to build, live, and play inside a realistic looking home. With TV blocks and realistic food already included in the game, you might have trouble distinguishing the Minecraft world from the real world.
