Caterpillar Mod for Minecraft 1.8.9/1.8


The Caterpillar mod is definitely one that you should consider installing if you find yourself mining frequently. The process of mining is a very rewarding one but at the same time, it has a lot of tedious and repetitive aspects as well that make it slightly less enjoyable and a bit more time consuming than it needs to be. This mod has been designed specifically to reduce the amount of tediousness that players face when mining and thanks to this the players can then focus solely on the fun parts of mining like acquiring rare materials and minerals from under the earth’s surface.


The Caterpillar adds to Minecraft a drill that can easily make 3×3 mineshafts for you whenever you want. Thanks to this drill you can create mineshafts really quickly and can then mine for resources efficiently since you won’t need to spend an absurd amount of time making the mineshaft. All you have to do is provide the drill with the necessary items needed to create a proper shaft like rails, torches and wood planks and the drill will take care of the rest for you. The great thing about this mod’s drill is that it can actually be customized as well. You can add various components to it like the item collector that keeps picking up blocks as it moves forward and even a drill storage that’ll greatly increase the amount of blocks that the drill can hold.


It’s worth remembering that the drill of the Caterpillar functions on coal as its main fuel source, so you need to have an appropriate supply of it to make sure that the drill doesn’t end up faltering halfway through its job. Ultimately, Caterpillar is a superb mod that allows players to automate one of the most tedious and repetitive mining tasks in Minecraft.
