There are a handful of different Minecraft moon mods available today, but MajikGuy’s Marvelous Moon Mod has the best support by far. With MajikGuy’s Marvelous Moon Mod, players can build a spaceship and fly to the moon.
The moon – just like in real life – is fairly barren. However, it does give players the ability to create unique buildings due to the low-gravity atmosphere. Building on the moon is completely different than building in vanilla Minecraft, and players will have to specially choose building materials that are strong enough to stand up to the dangers of a vacuum. Liquids, meanwhile, are frozen solid instantaneously.
Unfortunately for Minecraft players, your body will also explode if you travel to the moon without the proper space-suit. Space-suits must always be worn in the vacuum of space to prevent “explosive decompression.”
Fortunately, you can create a colony on the moon and design your own atmosphere thanks to the unique building tools available to you. New items include:
-Air Scrubber: Used to create artificial atmosphere conditions similar to those back on planet Minecraftia. Players simply place the scrubber in an airtight chamber and right click to scrub the area. This allows you to create a home on the moon where you can relax, take off your spacesuit, and enjoy the view.
-Cockpit Block: Cockpit blocks are one of the most important parts of the spaceship. Players create the spaceship around this block and right-click the cockpit to travel to the moon. Once on the moon, you can right click on your cockpit once more in order to return to Minecraftia.
–New blocks including the Framework Block, which looks like an iron block but uses way less iron, as well as a moonstone and star block.
The moon itself is a wonder to behold. The surface of the moon is pockmarked with craters, low mountains, and other features you would expect to see on the moon. Since you’re probably never going to visit the moon in your lifetime, visiting the Minecraft moon could be your one and only chance to explore Earth’s biggest satellite.
