When the solar apocalypse occurs, we’re all in trouble. What is the solar apocalypse, you might ask? Well, it depends on who you ask, but in general, the solar apocalypse is a catastrophic event where the earth moves closer to the sun, resulting in blistering hot conditions on the surface of our planet.
The joy of a solar apocalypse has been brought to Minecraft thanks to the Solar Apocalypse mod. This mod is a survival game which makes Minecraft harder than ever before by:
-Destroying all plant life
-And all animal life
-Over the span of four days
Once those four days are up, players will need to survive completely underground without visiting the surface. If you visit the surface, you and your items will slowly burn into dust.
It’s a challenging but fun game to play. When the rotation of the earth slows down, the days and nights both become longer, which means that the sun turns the earth into a burning inferno during the day and the surface of our planet becomes a snowy, frozen waste land at night. It’s deadly up on the surface, and the safest place to be is underground.
To make things interesting for players, the Solar Apocalypse Mod also adds a number of new blocks into the game, including:
-Obsidian Glass (temporarily holds out the sun’s heat but also attracts deadly lightning strikes)
-Reinforced Obsidian Glass
Opening Pandora’s Chest activates the solar apocalypse event, which consists of three stages. In the first stage, everything stays the same and players are free to gather resources. In the second stage, ice and snow begins to melt and grass and plant life will die. In the third stage, the stage two effects increase, water disappears, and items, people, and animals burn in sunlight. To cap it all off, fire rains down from the sky.
Surviving an IRL apocalypse doesn’t sound like fun, but thanks to the Solar Apocalypse Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5, you can experience the trials and tribulations of a catastrophic solar event from the comfort of your computer office chair.
