If you have fond memories of The Lion King movie by Disney, then you’ll appreciate The Lion King Mod for Minecraft. This mod aims to combine two beloved worlds together to create something totally unique.
The Lion King Mod liberally borrows content from the movie. In order to access that content, players need to find special Ticket Booths that spawn throughout their world. After installing the mod, these special ticket booths will appear in any new worlds that players create, as well as on new chunks of land in existing worlds.
Once players encounter a Ticket Booth, they can talk to the lion inside to exchange a gold ingot for a ticket to the Lion King world. After buying their ticket, players walk inside the theatre and enter a portal to the Pride Lands.
The Pride Lands is a totally new and unique Minecraft realm where players will encounter new animals, trees, flowers, ores, and items. There are also several different kinds of biomes within the Pride Lands, and each biome reflects a different setting from the movie.
As players explore the Pride Lands, they’ll encounter popular characters like Timon and Pumbaa as well as Simba, Jafar, and Rafiki.
Rafiki actually plays a central role in the Pride Lands, just as he does in the movie itself. Rafiki is found at the center of the Pride Lands world in an enormous tree. When players talk to Rafiki, he will entrust them with an important quest. As players complete that quest, they’ll gain access to special items (like Rafiki’s stick) as well as access to a new dimension called the Outlands.
But one of the best quest rewards in The Lion King Mod is something called the Star Altar. Players can use the Star Altar to summon companion Simbas which will fight beside them. These Simbas can also be used to carry items.
The highlights of this mod are the unique Pride Lands biomes and the characters. If players don’t want to start the Rafiki quest line right away, they can look for Timon and Pumbaa and feed them to earn access to special items.
Exploring the Pride Lands is a joy in itself. The Pride Lands includes unique biomes like the yellow, acacia tree-spotted fields of the Savannah as well as the dense and tropical Rainforest. There’s also the Mountains biome, which offer spectacular views of the surrounding environment and the parched grass of the Arid Savannah.
Although the surface of the Pride Lands is something to behold, there are also new sights to see underground. Players will find Silver Ore when mining underground, for example. And Dungeons are filled with dangerous hyenas that guard valuable loot.
And we’ve just hinted at all the features included in The Lion King Mod. Here are some of the other popular features:
-New animals like lions, zebras, rhinos, Gemsbok, Zazus, and hyenas
-New weapons like the Dart Shooter which fires a number of customizable darts
-New realms like The Outlands and the Upendi Realm
-And so much more
