Castle Defenders Mod – Add more NPCs into your game in order to protect you from creepers and zombies! Create the most fortified base ever created in Minecraft!
Overview of this Mod
Mobs in Minecraft can get very annoying, especially after a long day of mining. On top of that, if you own a castle, coming home to an empty and undefended castle can also get quite annoying. If only there was a way to add NPCs to make your game less lonely and more fortified.
Well, thanks to the Castle Defenders Mod, this can now become a reality! The castle defenders mod is a mod that allows you to craft blocks that spawn NPC’s that will defend you at any cost. You can either craft the knight, which is a melee mob, or an archer, a ranged champion. Both of them combined will create the perfect base defense. In addition to that, the NPCs resemble medieval time people, adding to the atmosphere if you were to create a castle for them to defend.
Did you know that you can make a minigame too? Like a tower defense type of game. For example, you can create a huge castle with an open entrance so mobs can still come in. After that, place some villagers inside of the castle, trapped inside fences to prevent them from escaping. After that, place a couple of zombie spawners outside of spawn, and place archers on smaller towers around your base. The zombies will attempt to get in your base because of the villagers, but the archers will prevent them from going in however. Once they enter you base, you “lose”.
In conclusion, this mod is great, and is recommended for anyone desiring a better base defense, or would like to play a tower defense mini game in Minecraft.

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder. Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
