Some people complain that Minecraft is just too easy. Being able to carry hundreds of blocks worth of goods, all without any kind of backpack or other bags just doesn’t make sense. If this sounds like you then you’re going to love the Trophy Slots mod. This mod actually disables the majority of your inventory, leaving you with very little carrying capacity and, therefore, a significantly reduced ability to farm, build, hunt, and mine on the fly. These grayed-out slots can be restored by completing achievements added by this mod, or through the use of specialty items, also implemented by the mod.
This is an interesting take on Minecraft and to be honest, one of the few (if not the only) mod of its kind today. While so many mods focus on making Minecraft easier, automating tasks, or simplifying procedures, the Trophy Slots actually make Minecraft harder. It’s a great spike in difficulty the first time you play through a world with it installed, but you’ll soon learn which achievements are the easiest to get and that will make getting your carrying capacity back much faster and easier on subsequent plays. All that said, there’s nothing bad to say about this mod.
The Trophy Slots mod does what it says it will do and it doesn’t bug out, so it should be compatible with other mods you might be using. Also, since it only adds a small number of new recipes to the game, you don’t need to worry about learning all kinds of new items, recipes, and other information to really enjoy the mod. So, if you’re looking for a truly hardcore experience the next time you create a Hardcore world on Minecraft, you’ll want to have this mod handy somewhere. It’s perfect for that, but it can be useful and fun in other situations as well.
