Developed by Shivaxi, RLCraft is a free modpack that transforms Minecraft into a survival game. RLCraft adds mods such as Dynamic Surroundings for immersive gameplay, Hardcore Wither, which makes Wither battles much more challenging, and Tough As Nails which makes the game much more difficult.
You'll also find vast dungeons, massive villages, and impressive structures which you can visit and explore! In addition, this pack is available in multiplayer, where players will be able to work together or compete against each other in PVP.
Features over 169 separate mods
RLCraft has over 169 separate mods that are all integrated into the pack—ranging from simple blocks like potatoes and sugarcane to complicated mods like Hardcore Wither and Dynamic Surroundings. There are lots to keep you entertained and busy with the amount of content.
Tons of dungeons to find and explore
There are over 25 different dungeons that you can discover, containing rare items and unique mobs. Each dungeon has its own biome, so be on the lookout for snowy tundras or jungles with stone temples. At night these dungeons become more dangerous to give players a greater challenge.
Massive villages to visit
Ranging from small to large villages, there are 5 different village types with unique structures and buildings. Visit the peaceful plains village or venture into the nether for a massive fortress. There's also a farm plot to grow your crops.
Don't let the sun fool you
At first glance, Minecraft may seem like a bright and happy game, but at night monsters can appear. At any time, there could be a powerful zombie or skeleton lurking in the darkness, so be sure to get your shelter sorted before nightfall.
Packed with unique designs and styles
RLCraft aims to keep everything as exciting and engaging as possible. As a result, there are many new builds which you've never seen before, with a completely unique atmosphere and feeling.
Brand new progression experience
RLCraft has a new type of modpack progression system, one that is very different from vanilla or other modpacks. You'll have to complete specific quests before being able to get into certain tiers, which means you won't be going straight from iron armour to quantum armour.
This modpack also has a Redstone economy, meaning different recipes will require specific items to craft. Emeralds are used as a currency and can be found deep underground or created using emerald blocks and an ore generator. Find chests throughout the world that contain emeralds. RLCraft also adds a lot of technology mods, making logistics much more manageable.
Tons of fun with friends
As if all the above wasn't enough, RLCraft is available in multiplayer to play with your friends. You'll find that this modpack has something for everyone, head into the deep dark for a dangerous cave exploration or go exploring one of the many biomes.
What game modes does RLCraft have?
RLCraft has two game modes – a creative mode to build whatever you want or a survival mode where you have to manage your hunger, health and other resources.
In creative mode, you will have an unlimited supply of resources and items at your disposal. This means that you'll be able to build whatever you want with ease.
When in survival mode, all blocks and items must be collected or crafted. Your hunger bar must also be managed as well as your health. Find food such as apples and beef to keep yourself from starving, and be careful of mobs such as zombies that seek to take a bite out of you!
