The Footpaths Mod is a quite simplistic mod that makes footpaths appear on grass surfaces where you or animals regularly walk over, meaning that you can create naturally looking paths through forests, villages and more.
Grass will get gradually more and more trampled and worn, starting from a light wear and ending with plenty of rock and dirt being visible instead of grass.
Important: this mod requires Minecraft Forge in order to function.
It adds to the atmosphere and enhances the experience of Minecraft, without really changing a whole lot.
To make the footpaths appear, you might have to walk around a lot though, as they don’t just pop up because you walked over a patch of grass, it has to be repeatedly used.
The path details are overlayed onto the standard grass textures, so the footpaths will look natural in every biome.
There are 16 stages of decay, going from very light, to pretty much all stone, so much variations is to be found.
All in all, it is pretty nice to have footpaths appear naturally and dynamically, you won’t have to create paths as much, and it looks great.
