Minecraft is a huge game with a lot to offer, however, updates are yearly and it is possible to run out of content while playing. This is where mods come into play. Minecraft players can install various mods that add new content or even change how the game is played.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 7 Minecraft mods that overhaul the game.

1. Infernal Expansion

Infernal Expansion is a community-based mod for Minecraft that seeks to expand on the official Nether Update. It adds more to the existing content in the Nether, and various new contents. It introduces a brand new biome called the Glowstone Canyon, a brand new biome comprised of gigantic Glowstone Stalagmites and various environmental hazards.

Besides the new biome, the mod also adds new mobs, effects and weapons, structures, and nearly 100 new blocks! Overall, the mods manage to preserve and improve the vanilla experience instead of changing it too much.

2. Tough as Nails

Tough As Nails is a survival mod that adds various features to increase the game's difficulty, including a thirst and temperature system. Survival is going to be much more complicated now - players need to find food to fill up their hunger bar, water to fill their thirst bar and lit fire to fill up their temperature meter.

3. Chisels & Bits

Minecraft's decoration could definitely use some improvements. While there are hundreds of decorative blocks added to the game over the years, it would definitely be better if players are able to alter how individual blocks look... to create unique ones.

Chisel And Bits Mod
Chisels & Bits is a great way to create unique decors.

Chisels & Bits mod allows players to whittle away at blocks with a chisel. Players can shave down blocks to specifically modify them to whatever way they want. This feature should definitely be added to the main game, as it allows an even higher range of customization.

4. The Twilight Forest

The Twilight Forest is one of the most popular Minecraft structure mods ever created. To date, it has gathered an eye-watering 52 million downloads. Unlike other mods that only modify the Overworld here and there, the Twilight Forests mod adds a completely new dimension, filled with trees as far as the eye can see. There are breathtaking vistas and amazing discoveries await you around every corner. New mobs, blocks, and structures are also added, including the Lich Tower, a labyrinth full of undead creatures.

Besides structures, The Twilight Forest also adds new mobs.

Twilight Forest is also super invested. It comes with fully fledged dungeons, diverse boss battles with elaborate mechanics, items and loot with unique traits and functionality... and more. It is also pretty lore-friendly. To get started, you will need to create your own portal similar to a nether portal, using grass blocks and flowers.

5. Flytre's Gun mod

Flytre's gun mod adds over 15 guns into the game. They vary in features and purposes - the roster features classics like assault rifles, shotguns, and snipers alongside sci-fi weapons like volt gun or slime gun.

Flytre's Gun mod adds weapons with special functions.

Players can create a brand new workbench block to craft and upgrade guns. Furthermore, this mod also includes scopes and a custom HUD that tracks your ammo for you. The best part about Flytre's mod, however, is the particle effect when your bullet hits enemies. This makes the weapons much more immersive.

6. Galaticraft + Extra Planets

Galacticraft is a mod for Minecraft which introduces 5 new dimensions that are based on planets and satellites in the Solar System. These include the Moon, Mars, Venus, Asteroids and a Space Station built by the space Explorer (aka the Player).

To travel to other planets, players need to build a rocket using the NASA workbench. Each tier of Rocket will fly to a different planet - building and flying them requires fuel refined from oil.

Galaticraft completely changes everything about Minecraft by adding tons of new planets to explore.

Extra Planets is an add-on for the mod Galacticraft that adds more planets and improves the other features of Galaticraft. The space dimensions have different gravity, no oxygen, extreme temperatures, evolved mobs and other challenges for players. With this add on, Galacticraft becomes one of the biggest dimension mods for Minecraft.

7. Animania Cats & Dogs: Your Pet In Minecraft

If you like to have animals as pets, Animania Cats & Dogs is the ideal mob to have. It implements more realistic cats and dogs, with 13 dog breeds and 7 cat breeds added. Furthermore, you also get more realistic foxes, ocelots and wolves.

These modded pets do not spawn naturally and can only be bought from a Pet Merchant, a new type of villager that spawns naturally in villages. This would prevent the mod from breaking immersion. Furthermore, Animania Cats & Dogs also add some functional and decorative blocks, such as pet bowls, dog houses, cat and dog beds, litter boxes, and cat trees.
