The mods that I use:
Single Player Commands (With World Edit!)
Damage Indicators Mod
Cyberfuch's More Ores+Coins Mod
Jammy Furniture Mod (To make a more homely hideaway!)
Hope this helped!
I'd recommend... Eh, really depends on what you want out of it. DivineRPG is good, but transforms the game completely into an RPG... I personally just use FTB, although that is still not updated to 1.5.
I want to spice Minecraft up a bit, we all know vanilla Minecraft is great, but adding new mods will keep the game fresh and provide more hours of entertainment.
I enjoy mods which add challenges to the game, and mods that add a lot of features, so if you know any please suggest them! I would be very grateful .
1. Mo'creatures 1.5.1 v5.0.4 -this adds a WHOLE LOT of animals and mobs too.. lots of fun
- to use mod you will also need:
1.custom mob spawner 1.12.2
2.GuiApi-0.15.4-1.5.1 (this is for single player-client only .. do not add this if for server)
Install is easy just put the Gui in coremods folder and then put custom mob spawner and mo'creatures in the mods folder. For best results start a new world if not a fresh jar so everything spawns correctly.
2.DungeonPack 1.5.1 v1 universal- this will add HUGE dugeons all over the world for you with lots of spawners and goodies(alot are under shallow water surfaces)
-install dugeonpack: just drag or copy zip download to your mods folder
3.Ruins_1.5.1- This adds different old ruins, left ships, hot air balloons, etc. usually with spawners and chest left inside (except ballons)
install ruins: click on zip file download then click on setup, then click on the mods folder. copy or drag ALL 3 folders(including resources) into your mods folder.
4. twilightforest 1.17.1- this one adds a whole new dimension to the game with forest mazes, giant trees(hollow with vines inside to climb up), and mob bosses in giant castles to fight(if you can find them) Lots of mobs and fun.
install twilightforest: just copy or drag downloaded zip file right into your mods folder.
ps. to make a portal dig a 2x2 square in ground(only 1 block deep) and fill with water until it is still water(usually 5 buckets) then surround every square with flowers(don't matter what kind red or yellow) 10 in all around water, then throw 1 diamond into the water.
these are 4 of my favorites i have, i hope you try them out. they make everything pretty interesting. they all require forge to install so make sure you have the latest one, other then that they are super easy to install. Enjoy
You may not like my suggestion... But, at least try Mine Little Pony? It's an awesome mod and the animations are epic too! I'm pretty sure Verdana, (like all other mod creators) put a lot of work into it, and it wouldn't kill you to try it. I tried it, I became brony.
If you're looking for mods who won't really change the vanilla minecraft, just improve it, you might want to take a look at:
-Optifine. Zoom function, full control about every graphical setting, and better perfomance.
-InvTweaks. Automaticly organizes your chests, and organizes your inventory when you press R. All fully Customizable.
-SOPHwolfs. wolfs have smarter movement( won't run into fire, run away from creepers), have different skin according to their spanwbiome, can be named, and will stop attacking if you hold shift+control.
-Timbermod. If you chop the bottom log of a tree with an axe, all the logs will drop.
-Squirrels. adds squirrels, just like bats, who won't drop xp or drops.
