Improved Villagers is a pretty clever mod that’s been designed to make the world of Minecraft feel more realistic for the adventurous players that are constantly wandering around it. The NPCs of any game play a huge role in how enjoyable the game actually is because, even though they aren’t actually playable and won’t go with you on most adventures, they’re still part of the game world and, if they’re properly designed, they can make the experience a lot more immersive on their own. Unfortunately, the villager AI of vanilla Minecraft isn’t all that revolutionary but, thankfully, this can be changed with the Improved Villagers mod.
As you can tell by the name, the Improved Villagers mod has been designed to improve the villagers of Minecraft and make them feel more lively and realistic. The mod combines together elements from other mods in order to make for one complete package that functions quite nicely. The mod makes the villager AI work a lot better and it even improves the village generation so the game world feels a lot more realistic with it applied. The mod also adds meat and bone drops to each of the villagers so, if you ever feel like going on a killing spree, you’ll get the proper drops for it.
Other than the aforementioned stuff, the Improved Villagers also makes changes like giving villagers the ability to panic when hurt as well as a bunch of other stuff. The mod also comes with a configuration file through which players can make various changes to the core functionality and customize the overall experience according to their preferences. All said and done, Improved Villagers is a great mod that does a spectacular job of improving the AI and functionality of the villagers in the world of Minecraft.
