Immersion is half the fun when it comes to PC games.

And if we’re looking for some kooky games to jostle with on PC, I’d say Minecraft is well near the top of that list.

Let’s look at some fantastic Minecraft mods that will help you get more immersed into your game world.

Whether it’s by improving the game’s performance itself, or by adding new stuff that is sure to make the game feel much better and realistic.

There’s a little something here to help everyone immerse themselves.

8. Realistic Pain

Realistic Pain mod

Check Out This Mod

This mod makes the damage in the game feel more realistic.

You will get splats of blood on your screen whenever you take a strong hit, representing the damage it did. Neat!

You will also get dust in your eyes if you happen to be in range of an explosion, and your character will bleed when stroke. When it happens this is maybe so neat… but still really cool!


7. Dynamic Lighting

Dynamic Lighting mod

Check Out This Mod

Dynamic lighting requires you to have a strong computer to run it, as it basically makes the lighting interact with the environment on a constant basis.

But for sure, this is a fantastic mod that allows you to carry a torch and illuminate your way without placing it. Since the lighting constantly updates you don’t have to worry about it.

You should also install this mod if your computer is powerful enough to run shaders, as those will look even better with DL installed.


6. NotEnoughItems

NotEnoughItems mod

Check Out This Mod

NotEnoughItems helps you out if you play in creative.

But if you’re on regular survival, you will be able to see the crafting recipes of all items while in-game.

You won’t have to tab to a different screen if you want to see what’s required to craft an item; simply open your inventory and look for the item on the search bar.

How convenient is that?


5. Optifine

Optifine Minecraft mod

Check Out This Mod

Optifine is a must-have.

This mod improves the FPS of your game by a noticeable degree, as it lets you customize many of the graphic features of Minecraft on your side (which means that it works on servers and realms).

It’s one of the most popular Minecraft mods in the world and one that I’ve been using for years to make my game run better.


4. Presence Footsteps

Presence Footsteps mod

Check Out This Mod

Presence Footstep completely changes the way footstep sounds work in Minecraft.

You won’t ever have to listen to the same sound when walking on top of two different types of blocks. Small detail yes, but very pleasant too.

Install this mod and listen to realistic footsteps like never before.

Pro Tip: I really recommend using this one with your headphones on.


3. Better Foliage

Better Foliage mod

Check Out This Mod

Better Foliage works to improve the clunky shapes of Minecraft trees.

It makes vegetation look more realistic overall, and enhances the block placement of all plant blocks in the game.

Combine this mod with dynamic lighting, a good texture pack, and a quality shader, and you’re good to go.


2. Minecraft Mineralogy

Minecraft Mineralogy mod

Check Out This Mod

This bad boy adds a whole new bunch of block types to the game, which work like regular stone blocks.

It also adds underground biomes to make the game feel more like the real world.

Igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are not only meant to be found in ultra-realistic modpacks, are they?

It’s time for you to enjoy them as close to vanilla as possible with this amazing mod!


1. Mo’ Creatures

Mo’ Creatures mod

Check Out This Mod

Mo’ Creatures, as its name suggests, adds dozens of new species to the game!

Ranging from Wyverns to Moles, this fantastic mod is going to help you rediscover Minecraft nature by adding new mobs that drop new and unique items when you kill them.

I really think immersion comes from the level of detail and realism we find in-game.

And what’s more realistic than bumping into weird Minecraft moles?
