The NiftyBlocks mod is quite a useful mod that consists of tons upon tons of useful tools that you’ll absolutely love using as you make your way through the world of Minecraft. The mod isn’t like one of those must have mods that elevate the experience to new heights but, even so, it’s a mod that’s sure to have a pretty big impact on how your Minecraft gameplay functions if you choose to install it. The best thing of course about Minecraft mods like this one is that they seem to have absolutely no impact on the game’s performance so players with low-end PCs can use them without any trouble.
Onto the specific details, the NiftyBlocks mod basically has a whole bunch of decorative and functional blocks that have been designed to make things more enjoyable and easier for the players. You’ll find blocks that’ll help you with day to day tasks like cooking and construction and, alongside these, you’ll also find special blocks that are there purely for the sake of decoration and visual flare. The decorative blocks of this mod are definitely a great feature because there aren’t many mods out there that focus on adding blocks of this sort into the game.
The NiftyBlocks mod has been around for just over two years and it’s seen quite a lot of updates over time that have added more useful blocks to it. One rather peculiar thing about this mod is that it’s sitting at below 2000 downloads which is a rather subpar amount considering how long the mod’s been out. Nonetheless, you shouldn’t let the small amount of downloads fool you because this is a very well designed mod that’ll add quite a bit of depth and flavor to your Minecraft experience if you ever choose to try it out.
