You may notice (besides a couple of anomalies) a theme. And also that the lad is a bit of a Brony.
The "mods" are add-ons for the Minecraft computer game Eme has basically grown up on and continues to be obsessed with. He knows more about Minecraft mods than I do, from watching fan-made videos. But, alas, he is not able yet to install them himself. In fact they are generally a pain to install, and extremely tedious to maintain, even for me. They are free creations made by Minecraft players (which is convenient and nice), but as such, they are often incompatible with current versions of Minecraft, have conflicts with other mods, and sometimes make the game unstable. Also, while curious and fun for a bit, they tend to completely unbalance the game/simulation as it is played in normally (and so I can't very well install them in our regular game world without destroying it).
Emeth's Christmas list from last Christmas was fairly similar to the above list, but just with different mods. For Christmas he desperately wanted "Creeps and Weirdos mod", and "PortalCraft mod". Istra additionally most wanted "Shapeshifter mod" (which lets you turn into animals and other creatures). So I finally buckled down back then and figured out ways to hunt down and install different needed versions of Minecraft in their own little sandboxes, and get the desired mods working in individual environments. It worked well, though it hasn't been without headaches. It looks like I'll be making a bunch more of these modded worlds in the coming days...
While everyone else continues to scratch their head and ponder what in the world he actually wants for his birthday. Just get him socks.
|Emeth's redstone madness|
He also desperately wants to program his own mods. But that's a whole other story...
Maybe when he's seven years old...?!
