CurseForge is one of the best modding resources online, especially for Minecraft. It even has its own app, which makes installing and changing mods around simple. What’s more, the site often has its own easier-to-install versions of Minecraft’s most-popular mods. But with a wide variety of mods on the site, it can be overwhelming to pick out the best. 

But have no fear, as we’ve broken down the best Minecraft CurseForge mods with links to get them below.

Better Minecraft (Forge Edition)

Ever wish Minecraft had its updates earlier, a dozen new biomes, more dimensions like The End and The Nether, quests, dragon breeding, and was well, just better? Well, Better Minecraft is for you.

Mods that add new elements to Minecraft are pretty standard. Still, it’s pretty rare that a mod takes elements from upcoming official content and adds them before Mojang can. So perhaps that’s why Better Minecraft feels more like an official expansion than an out their mod. And thanks to CurseForge, this pack which contains over a dozen individual mods, is conveniently packaged.

There’s plenty of “real life” mods for Minecraft, but RLCraft overshadows them with just how insane it is. For example, in RLCraft, you can’t punch trees to get wood to make tools. Instead, you have to find sticks on the ground, find flint in gravel, craft flint tools, and then chop down a tree.

But this is combined with additional new mobs and monsters to the game. You can tame almost every creature in the game, which makes this mod feel like a combination of ARK: Survival Evolved and Minecraft.

Pixelmon Reforged

If there’s one game that can match Minecraft’s universal appeal, then it’s Pokémon. So combining the two seems like a natural progression, and Pixelmon does that. This transforms Minecraft from a survival game to an open-world Pokémon game. 

Travel the wilderness finding Pixelmon, capture them using Poké Balls, and journey around towns. The battle system in Pixelmon is very similar to the Pokémon, but some added flavor. There are boss battles, deep exploration, and randomly spawning landmarks. A perfect fusion of two fantastic games

SkyFactory 4

SkyBlock is one of the most popular types of Minecraft maps of all time. So when you have a mod that changes SkyBlock into practically its own game, it’s a recipe for success. SkyFactory, now in its fourth release, has grown from a simple mod that allowed you to automate things into a fully-fledged experience in its own right.

SevTech Ages

The advancements system in Minecraft is nice, but it’s more of a rough guide than a full-on progression system. That’s where SevTech Ages comes in. SevTech Ages guides you through the advancement tree, only to upgrade to a new “Age,” unlocking new mods as the game progresses.

This means that as you go deeper into Minecraft, more blocks, materials, and gadgets are unlocked. It makes the Vanilla Minecraft experience far more engaging, as there’s always something to look forward to on the horizon!
