Our solar system is truly amazing. The Solar System Mod for Minecraft tries to bring some of the amazing features of our solar system to Minecraftia. To do that, the Solar System Mod adds the following features to the game:
-8 new planets, including Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (yes, you’re lucky this time, Pluto)
-Different planets have different features. On Mercury, you’ll find no living creatures, for example, and lava flows beneath cracks on the surface. Venus has a similar environment but it is more orange colored.
-Mars is cooler than Earth, which means players won’t find any lava or living creatures. The planet is red.
-Jupiter is similar to Mars, but features an orange-red hue
-Saturn is plain, boring, and golden colored
-Neptune is blue and has ice beneath the surface of the planet
-All planets feature their own unique types of ore. On Mars, you’ll be able to harvest Mars Rock by digging into the ground, for example.
To get to all of these planets, you’ll need to craft different portals. Getting to Mercury requires a Gold Block portal, for example, while getting to Jupiter requires a Brick portal.
Aliens have also been added to the game through this mod. Aliens are strong enemies that only spawn on difficulties of easier or higher. Like creepers, aliens come out at night. They’re surprisingly strong and deal major damage to players. After killing an alien, you can collect alien gems, which can then be crafted into alien swords.
Alien swords are a fun new weapon. They kill any animal with one hit and can be used for 1000 swipes. Since all enemy aliens hold alien swords, you can expect to have a difficult battle on your hands every time you encounter an alien.
Where do you find aliens? In their alien houses of course! Alien houses are generated only on the planet Mars and in an alien biome on your normal world. Just like in real life, alien houses are made out of distinctive green blocks called Alien Blocks. Unfortunately for players, Alien Blocks cannot be crafted. If you want to build your own alien house, you’ll need to go harvest the materials from an existing alien house on Mars.
To help give players a fighting chance against aliens and the harsh environments of other planets, the Solar System Mod adds a new type of armor called the Space Suit into the game. The Space Suit is “currently useless” according to the mod’s creator, although it does provide a decent defense stat. The next mod update aims to make planets hurt players when they travel there without wearing the suit.
