Have you ever wanted to be a mad scientist? Now’s your chance thanks to the Mad Science Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5.
Mad Science adds new machines, items, and mods to the game. All of these items revolve around the idea of creating your own crazy laboratory.
In the words of the mod’s development team:
“Our scientists have worked hard to bring you some of the finest equipment for genetic research Minecraft has to offer. These custom built machines fit into one of three separate categories. The categories represent the different stages of the game in which you will encounter them, and also will be expected to craft at that tier of the game.”
What does that mean? Here are a few of the features and tools added to the game through the Mad Science Mod:
-Computer Mainframe: Lets players manipulate DNA strands and ‘Genome Data Reels’ in order to create new forms of life. That’s right – you can create new mobs and creatures, including something called the Disgusting Meat Cube.
-Cryogenic Tube: The Cryogenic Tube can be placed in a village and is designed to harvest electrical power from the memories of Villagers. Cryogenic Tubes can also play back Memory Data Reels to enhance power output. So yes, if you need more power to your lab, you can literally harvest the energy of neighboring Villages. Nice!
-Genome Incubator: The Genome Incubator lets you create spawn eggs for all different types of mobs. That means you don’t have to launch crazy experiments using the Genome Data Reels if you don’t want to.
-Nether Quartz: Finally, the seemingly-useless item from vanilla Minecraft gets a use! Players can purify Nether Quartz to create Fused Quartz. When combined with a Thermosonic Bonder, Fused Quartz creates Silicon Wafers, CPUs, RAM, and plenty of other types of circuits.
The Mad Science Mod is also environmentally friendly. You can recycle all the components you created and used. That makes it easy to mess around with science stuff you don’t really understand without worrying about destroying valuable resources.
Minecraft is set up perfectly for mad scientists: you can build underground laboratories or blast apart an entire mountain with a well-placed bomb. With the Mad Science Mod, you can just make your laboratory look a little more official.
