Have you ever been wandering through Minecraft and then thought to yourself, “hey, I wonder what’s new on Twitter?”
If so, then you’ll like the Web Displays Mod for Minecraft. This mod gives users the ability to view a web browser in-game. Before you say, “You don’t need a mod to run a windowed version of Minecraft!”, read how this mod works:
-Players must craft ‘web screen’ blocks. When enough of these web screen blocks are placed together, players will be able to load up their browser in game.
-You can also create a mobile browser that can be taken with you. This is called the MinePad and it is a smaller version of the web browser (it’s one block).
-You can also craft other items like the keyboard and mouse in order to properly use the web browser. However, they’re not required in order to access basic browser functionality.
-You can change your browser’s URL bar using the keyboard and mouse.
Once you’ve created everything you need to display a website, you can access the entire internet from Minecraft. The Web Displays Mod features high definition textures and your browser is displayed in all its glory – no pixilation or any of that garbage.
Oh, and when I said you need to stack ‘enough’ of the web screen blocks together, I should have been more specific. You’ll need to stack 144 web display blocks together in a 16x9x1 surface shape. Once you right click on your stack of blocks, your web browser will show up.
You can watch YouTube videos from your favorite Minecraft streamers from within Minecraft. Or you could watch entire movies in-game. Some servers have also used this mod to display a constantly-updated webpage that features the server’s latest news.
If all of this sounds amazing to you, then you’re not alone. Yes, the Web Displays Mod sounds like a simple addition to the game but it opens up a realm of exciting possibilities. A group of Minecraft players have already formed a group called Virtual Barcraft where they sit around, drink virtual beer, and eat virtual food together while watching a stream.
Whether you’re watching instructional streams in your Minecraft world or just staying up-to-date on new video podcasts, the Web Displays Mod is undoubtedly one of the coolest and most unique Minecraft mods available today. It’s also ridiculously easy to install with Minecraft Forge.
