Late yesterday, Mojang held a very important discussion on Ester IRC. Famous modders from the Minecraft community joined and discussed the API with the recently hired ex-Bukkit developers at Mojang. They discussed how it would work and what it would do, etc. This is great news for you, the ordinary user that likes mods, and I'm here to explain why without too much complicated coder talk.

DivineRPG is probably the biggest mod for Minecraft around. It adds magic, pets, bosses, over a 100 new mobs and most importantly 8 new dimensions and upgrades to the existing 3. Throughout this Dimensional Travel Guide we'll take a look at each dimension and what it's all about, starting with the upgraded vanilla dimensions.
Goblins are among those standard fantasy world monsters we see in so many games these days, however they have not made an appearance in Minecraft. Yet. Modder Sartharis took up this task and made the mod “Goblins!”. It adds a whole lot of stuff to the game, not just goblins as a mob, and it does so very well.
The Evil Minecraft mod has been in development for a long, long time. We've gotten teases for it and it's had preview releases with some features implemented before. But now the (in)famous 0.666 version is finally here, and it has one of the biggest feature lists we've ever seen. The mod updates certain graphical aspects, game mechanics, adds new mobs, items and blocks and much, much more.

Last week, Mojang released a couple of announcements, focusing on the Heartbleed bug that affected Minecraft (as well as most of the web) and the new 1.7.9 update that headlines the ability to change your in-game name while still not breaking server bans, inventories, etc. Read on for the details. If you are not aware, the Heartbleed bug was a bug in the security protocol most sites use that allowed someone to access a small amount of data from the server that could include sensitive information.
The famous Sonic Ether is at it again with a new update to his shader baby - Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders. This new update brings a few interesting additions. Fog has been added to remove that ugly border fix, an HDR effect has been implemented that deals with variable light exposure, or in other words, give the “eyes adjusting to light after exiting cave” effect.
Have you ever wanted to be a superhero and kick criminal behind? Well, with the Superheroes Unlimited mod, you can do so in Minecraft! Made by Tihyo, this mod currently adds 5 heroes you can become by crafting their armor and therefore gaining their powers. Let's have a (x-ray) look…The first hero we will be looking at is Batman , because Batman is the best superhero and everybody knows that except for apparently the creator of this mod.
Realistic textures packs often struggle to have their own unique style. They all try to imitate reality, and therefore look too much alike. Only rare pieces of art rise above this and manage to create their own unique style despite being realistic. I already covered one of these, the famous Misa's Texture Pack, and now I will now show you another - HerrSommer by DerSommer.
Mojang have been busy the past couple of weeks fixing tons of bugs and adding some nice new features to our favorite blocky game.

When you talk about texture packs, you're very likely that someone will mention JohnSmith's 32x pack. It's one of the most popular texture packs out there with a giant fanbase that adds support for various mods for the texture pack, and it has a very unique look to it that will stick to you if you're into that sort of thing.

The mod adds the new dimension of Middle-earth in which all of the content can be found.
The cubey world of Minecraft is dotted with flora. Leaves and grass (and others too) cover the surface. Modder Poersch decided that it could look better, and so the Better Grass & Leaves Mod came to be. The mod essentially adds a few pixels to some textures, making them less cubey and more lush. Let's take a look.
Random world generation has become one of the most iconic features of Minecraft, and one of its main selling points. The blocky landscape that is always familiar, yet never the same is truly one of the best features the game has to offer. Since the biomes were added in beta, Minecraft's world diversity has been stunningly beautiful.
