If you think that Minecraft’s vanilla villages are too rare for something that is so boring, well this mod might just be the one for you.
Created by username Pigs_FTW, Mo’ Villages is a mod based upon the “More Village Biomes” mod that was once created for 1.6.2 and then was discontinued.
The Mo’ Villages mod will make vanilla villages be available to all 1.7 biomes all with their own custom looks.
By changing blocks to their appropriate biome-related blocks, better looking NPC villages are born. There is also a config to make them more common.
In comparison to the vanilla minecraft, the default option of this mod will make villages spawn 2 to 3 times greater than normal.
Do note that village spawning will only spawn on new chunks – so it is recommended to explore further out or create a new save game altogether.
Villages will still have the same building outline and design to the vanilla one, but only uses blocks that are related to their current biome – resulting in a different looking village.
Extreme Hills villages uses bricks as their road and stone bricks as their roof, while ice plains and ice mountain villages uses snow as their main building material and ice as their road.
Similarly, villages on Savannah, jungle, and taiga biomes uses wood that are based on the local trees and flora.
My favorite village generation is the one that generates on the mushroom biome as they have houses made out of mushrooms that look very unique and cute.
Roofed Forest villages also look particularly good as their landscape are pretty unique. Just be careful on blacksmith buildings as they may burn nearby wood blocks.
Overall, the mod is great and makes for a nice upgrade for the vanilla village, but some village type is a bit weird – especially the mesa biome village. But, to each his own,
