Pirates is a Minecraft mod that, as the name suggests, adds a variety of pirate themed content to the Minecraft world for players to enjoy. Given the insane amount of content of varying themes that exists for Minecraft, it’s rather surprising that we only rarely come across pirate themed content. That being said, though, Pirates is an extremely well designed mod that can certainly add a ton of depth to your Minecraft experience as it has a lot to offer in terms of content and definitely feels quite refreshing since there aren’t many mods like it.
Features and Functionality
The Pirates mod features full-fledged pirate mobs that’ll spawn on various occasions and are actually rather challenging to fight so you’ll certainly have to bring your best if you hope to take them down. There are the usual pirate mobs that spawn with a cutlass and dagger but you’ll also need to be vary of the captain pirates that spawn with their custom sword and shield and can sustain quite a beating before going down. The mod also features new items and blocks for players to make use of such as the telescope through which players can see far away things, a ship bell that plays a sound in a 32 block radius and, on top of all this, the mod even features rum that players can drink to give themselves additional health and absorption.
Compatibility and Technical Aspects
Since Pirates is simply a content focused mod that doesn’t actually alter the mechanics of Minecraft in any way, it’s unlikely that it’ll cause any technical issues that would surface to hinder your experience. The mod’s only available for Minecraft 1.12.2 so you’ll have to ensure that you’re on the correct version of the game before you start using it.
All said and done, Pirates is a top tier pirate themed Minecraft mod and we certainly hope to see more similar mods in the future as this particular theme hasn’t really been explored all that much.
