A mod about gravestones might not seem like the most interesting or enticing mod in the world, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The Gravestone Mod adds gravestones to the game, so you can see where you, your friends, villagers, or your pets have died. But, that is far from all this mod adds.
This mod will also add cemeteries to some villages (creepy!), as well as a whole new stronghold-like structure called the Wither Catacombs. In these catacombs, you’ll find tons of loot, adventure and if you can survive to the end, a whole new Wither boss encounter!
There are several different kinds of gravestones, the first kind being the normal square ones. These can spawn in various materials and colors, and has a small chance of spawning zombies or skeletons at night, and in specific conditions, pig zombies and wither skeletons. The gravestones will also hold whatever you had in your inventory upon death, as well as information about your death.
Important: the Gravestone Mod required Minecraft Forge in order to function.
Gravestones can also be moved by breaking them, or the ground beneath them, and then placing them somewhere else. Make your own collection of your deaths!
Some gravestones can also hold loot which will drop when you destroy them, or right click them with a shovel. That is only for generated gravestones though, player made gravestones will only hold whatever was in their inventory upon their death.
If you have a sword in your inventory upon dying, there is a 25% chance that your gravestone will become a sword gravestone.
If a tamed dog dies, it will leave behind a dog gravestone, which has a chance of spawning zombie or skeleton dogs at night. The same happens when tamed cats die, except it looks like a cat and has a chance of spawning zombie and skeleton casts at night. Horses are similar, except nothing spawns out of horse gravestones.
New type of spawners can also appear in the world with this mod, skeleton spawners, zombie spawners, and wither spawners.
Skeleton spawners and zombie spawners work similar to vanilla spawners, except that they can spawn any type of skeleton or zombie (cat, dog, normal, wither).
Wither spawners are found at the end of the new catacombs, they will spawn Wither, and then destroy itself after having done that.
That’s only a very small part of all the features added by the mod, you will also see new blocks, items, statues, memorials, items, villagers, mobs, recipes, and more! So all in all, the Gravestone Mod is about much more than just gravestones. For a full list of features, check out the official forum post.
So if you’re looking to up the creep factor of Minecraft, and make it a bit darker and medieval, don’t miss out on the Gravestone Mod!
