The best part about this mod is that you can easily break your shelves and place them in a different location with all your items intact.
Voyager Shader Mod
No Minecraft mod list would be complete without at least one shader mod. The Voyager mod is the latest datapack based on Optifine textures that brings vibrance to all vanilla biomes.
If you have a powerful PC, then your worlds will look incredible, especially at night, when the play of light and shadow looks absolutely stunning.
If you've never tried a shader mod before, then be sure to downalod and install the Voyager mod.
If you're tired of fighting the same mobs over and over again, then you can easily diversify the pool of Minecraft enemies with the help of the Creatures+ mod.
It adds 24 brand new models of hostile mods, which you have never seen before. More than that, each class of mobs spawns in a specific biome and has its own unique abilities.
Lastly, when you kill mobs they will drop either their weapon or a part of their gear, which makes things so much more fun.
