I want to take a bit of space to go a little more in-depth about a mod for Minecraft that we’ve covered in the past. It seems MineColony isn’t getting the amount of attention that it rightfully deserves. So let’s review:
MineColony is like a game within a game. It doesn’t just populate your world with a bunch of bumbling idiots randomly walking about. No, MineColony turns your chaotic, treacherous world into a fully functioning society with one goal: production. You workers come in various types; lumberjack, miner, farmer, builder and deliveryman. The deliveryman’s job is to travel from worker to worker collecting what each of them has produced and then store the items in chests for you.
Different types and levels of tools impact the quality and efficiency of the work that your workers are able to do. When a tool wears out a worker will search his chest for the specific type of tool that he requires for his job. It’s your job to ensure that your workers have the right types of tools, and plenty of them. You can replace a workers tool simply by dropping it next to them.
While MineColony puts you, the player, very closely within range of becoming a full-fledged dictator; do note that your workers have rights and demands. One of those being that they won’t work at night (Though living in a Minecraft world, can you blame them?) and your workers will halt production whenever a problem arises. You worker will let you know the reason why he’s stopped working when you approach him. You’ll also need to make sure that you pay them regularly.
You’ll get a golden sceptor to point at people which will make them follow you. (With great power comes great responsibility) You’ll also establish a bank to print and convert money and a town hall where you can see some overall information about your colony, tips, balance and more.
With all of that said: Don’t skip over MineColony. It is by far and wide one of if not the coolest Minecraft mods we’ve seen yet.
