Twilight Forest – Venture off into a distant realm with sky high trees, fight new mobs, and have awesome boss battles, all in Minecraft, thanks to this mod!
Overview of this Mod
The Twilight Forest mod is a mod for Minecraft that adds a new dimension into Minecraft, dubbed the “Twilight Forest”. As the name of the mod suggests, the new dimension added will have trees everywhere. However, these are not normal trees. The trees you will commonly find in this mod are slightly larger than the trees in normal Minecraft, but you can occasionally find huge trees that extend all the way to the clouds! But that’s not all this mod adds. Let’s get into those now, shall we?
Features of this Mod
The Twilight Forest Mod adds the following features:
Flatter and Lower World
- To compensate for the size of the trees, the whole world itself has been lowered
- 7 new biomes have been added. It’s up to you to find them all!
- There will be a lot of normal Minecraft trees in the forest, but at the same time, there will be quite a bit of new ones too.
The Hollow Hills
- This is a very notable feature of the mod. These are essentially ravines, but they add all kinds of ores, which are lit by glowstone most of the time.
New Dangers (Mobs, Mazes, and Boss Battles)
- These are probably the flagship features of the mod.
- You will typically find a new type of skeleton mob roaming the land.
- When you go to a hedge maze, you will find a different type of spider guarding it.
- The boss “Naga” can be found in a courtyard deep in the forest. It is said that he is nearly impossible to kill without diamond armor.
- You need to make this portal in order to get to the Twilight Forest.
- To make the portal, you need to do the following:
- 1. Make a 2×2 water pool (You know, those pools you make for an infinite amount of water.)
- 2. Surround the pool with flowers and mushrooms.
- 3. Throw a diamond in the pool (Press “Q” when the diamond is in your hand.)
- 4. Jump in!
- The portal should look like this:
There might be more features that have been added. I would recommend to check out the official forums post (link below) to find more features that have been added.
