In comparison with other open world games, Minecraft's world is rather devoid of structures. If the number of buildings in the base game is not enough for you to explore, installing mods is probably your best bet.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 8 Minecraft mods that add new structures.

1. 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.

2. Medieval Minecraft

Medieval Minecraft will bring your Minecraft experience back to the early ages of gaming with its medieval settings, including 6 new dimensions alongside new bosses. However, the most unique part is probably the new updated thirst and stamina system. This allows players to have a much more realistic experience.

Quest-wise, Medieval Minecraft is no slouch. This mod pack adds a variety of new quests that follows a storyline and guide players through it at the same time.

3. Valhesia Structures

Valhesia Structures is one of the newer mods on this list. Unlike Repurposed Structures, it adds completely new lore-friendly buildings onto the map instead. Explore the world of Minecraft all over again, this time with dungeons, abandoned buildings, castles, temples, ruins scattered all over the place for you to explore.

Valhesia Structures is one of the few Minecraft structure mods that add new buildings.

Players can certainly claim the existing structures and build around them to save time and effort.

4. Conquest Reforged

Conquest Reforged is an aesthetic Minecraft mod for players who wish to enhance their creative Minecraft experience and push their builds far beyond the limitations of the base game. This mod introduces hundreds of handmade 32x semi-realistic textures with full Optifine compatibility.

Furthermore, there are over 12k blocks with custom 3D models and themes. They are distributed across a wide range of ages and settings that follow a fantasy theme. The world generated using this mod will look very different than the normal Minecraft world.

5. The Twilight Forest

The Twilight Forest is a dimension exploration mod that's mostly geared toward adventure. You will be able to explore fully fledged dungeons, fight diverse boss battles with elaborate mechanics... and more. Meet strange creatures, trade and craft unique items to assist in your travel.

The best parts of this dimension mod are the beautifully haunting vistas that serve as the backdrop as you take down vicious bosses in your journey.

Unlike Better Minecraft, Roguelike Adventures and Dungeons does not focus on the vanilla content. It focuses on expanding the basic dungeon mechanics in Minecraft Classic. The is an array of new content added with this mod pack, including new structures, mobs, weapons, gear, and quests.

This mod is also upgraded very frequently, with the modder adding more and more new variants of vanilla styled structures.

8. Atum 2: Return to the Sands

Amongst dimension mods for Minecraft, Atum 2: Return to the Sands is probably the most unique. It expands on the desert biome. It adds a brand new dimension to explore, which is made up of 9 biomes. Each biome has new dungeons, ruins, and more to explore and clear.

However, the main feature of this mod is probably the new mobs. There are 11 new enemies for you to encounter and fight, 5 new animals to tame and hunt, alongside a powerful pharaoh boss with variants to defeat. To aid players in their journey, there are 35+ artifacts with special inbuilt abilities.
