Here’s a mod which might seem kind of redundant to some players. The Web Displays mod allows players to literally surf the Internet while playing their favorite game, through the use of a brand new Web Screen Block, among other new entities. To surf the web, you will need a total of 144 of this new block, arranged in a 16x9x1 shape. This takes up a good bit of space in the world and you will need a large patch of perfectly flat land to get things started, but once you do, the sky is the limit, just like when you’re surfing the net outside of Minecraft.
That’s just the start though. The Web Displays mod requires you to make a Minepad (play on iPad) to actually interact with the screen, plus some other specialty items to make browsing easier once you’re actually set to start searching the Internet. It’s a nice enough mod, and it implements some pretty interesting elements like connectivity to the world outside of Minecraft, but there’s no doubt that watching videos on Youtube is a lot easier when you just open Firefox or your usual browser, rather than doing it through Minecraft. Very interesting, but complicated and messy, this mod is still fun to try.
