When it comes down to it, Minecraft is more or less a mining and farming simulator with a little bit of combat tossed in to keep things interesting. With that in mind, Industrial Craft is the perfect mod for people who enjoy both mining and farming, since it adds a slew of new blocks to the game. Some of these are simple and cosmetic, meant for construction and little else; other blocks are completely new items with new features, like teleporters. IndustrialCraft mod adds a whopping amount of content to a game which was never lacking for that in the first place, so most players find the mod quite enjoyable.
There are solar, wind and hydroelectric generators, all of which produce energy much like redstone sources. There are different ore types as well. The addition of tin and copper ore makes mining a little more fresh and these new ore types are used to make many of the machines introduced in IndustrialCraft Mod. Copper wire makes lots of these new blocks function, so players are going to want to hold onto any copper chunks they find while playing with this mod installed. As for the installation itself, that’s a very easy job with the right modloader.
Risugami’s ModLoader will make installing IndustrialCraft Mod easy, but it’s not the only modloader which supports this particular mod. Also be on the looking for Flan’s ModLoaderMP, another program which pretty much does the same thing as Risugami’s program – the differences between the two come down to style and aesthetics. Please keep in mind that any existing worlds which are loaded once Industrial Craft is installed will never work normally without IndustrialCraft Mod again, so be sure to make some backups if you plan on testing this mod on a world in which you’ve already invested much time and effort.
