Update 1.19 for Minecraft was released earlier this week, and it introduced many new features like Deep Dark, Mangrove Swamp, Allays, Wardens, Frogs, Mud and much more to the game. The game has received some significant changes with the update.
However, the one thing the update didn’t change much was the gameplay. Players returning to Minecraft after a long hiatus may be confused by all the new stuff, but they won’t have forgotten how to play. Now the only way to change the gameplay is through mods.
In Java Edition, modifications are quite common. Most players have at least one mod of some kind installed to do certain things in the game. Minecraft has several mods that can completely change the game. Here are some good ones that players can use in version 1.19.
Mods to try in Minecraft version 1.19
5) Biomes Galore
Biomes O’Plenty has been one of the top mods in Minecraft for a long time. One of the main complaints about the game is that it doesn’t have enough biomes. Even with the 1.19 update adding two main biomes, Deep Dark and Mangrove Swamp, there is always room for more biomes in the game, and Biomes O’Plenty does exactly that.
Biomes O’Plenty is always being updated to give players the highest quality biomes to enjoy in-game. The developers of the mod recently updated to 1.19 so that everyone can access the mod and experience all the cool new biomes it has in store.
4) Xaero Minimap
For any Minecraft player, maps are vital. However, physical maps can be easily lost in the game. This mod allows players to have a minimap on their screen at all times, making adventures much easier and safer.
Also, the mode is highly customizable. Players can set it to track certain points of interest, like the mobs shown on the circular map above. It can also give a closer look at certain areas, so players always know what’s around them.
3) Simply Light
Another feature that many Minecraft players feel might be missing from the game is lighting options. While many blocks do emit light, not many of them measure up. Although update 1.19 introduced Froglight, those blocks are quite difficult to acquire in the game. Other than these, the light sources mainly include torches, lanterns, and perhaps redstone lamps.
The Simply Light mod fixes that by adding new light blocks and improving existing ones. Hostile mobs have no chance to spawn with this mod.
2) You are in serious danger
Dying in Minecraft can be frustrating for a number of reasons, chief among them being the fact that players generally lose all of their stuff after dying. As a result, players may end up losing some valuable items that they collected in the game, such as diamond pickaxe, diamond sword, etc.
This mod gives players a tombstone at their death location that contains all of their items, which players can collect after respawning. With this mod, players have no reason to fear death and can also get their items back after dying in the game.
1) Additional Alchemy
Potions are extremely important in Minecraft, especially those that allow healing. Night vision is also a crucial feature that can be obtained through certain potions. This is especially true in 1.19, as Minecraft players now have to deal with Deep Dark. In that biome the darkness effect will be applied, and you will have to face the Warden, which may be the most difficult mob in the game.
Extra Alchemy adds potion bags, vials, and potion rings. This makes potions much more accessible and useful in the game. This mod is a must have for Minecraft version 1.19.
