#2. Simple Voice Chat
The name of this mod says it all since in vanilla Minecraft, what you can do is chat with your friends using the “T” button. But to talk, you must use a 3rd-party software like Discord.
And that’s where Simple Voice Chat proves its feature by introducing the voice chat system right in your game!
With a lot of features and a user-friendly GUI, Simple Voice Chat got over 3 million downloads just in a few years! The setting is also very convenient and self-explain.
You press V to open the main GUI, in which you can change the settings, hotkeys, group chats, mute yourself, deafen yourself, hide the icons, and even record the conversation!
It’s insane that Simple Voice Chat provides a fully customizable setting just like any other sound software.
You can amplify the volume, change the noise suppression, change the activation type, voice activation threshold, and a lot more! If you’re looking for a Minecraft mod to play with your friends, this is definitely the best choice!
#3. Xaero’s Minimap
Need a visualize Minecraft mod that can track all of the entities around you (even your friends) and even the terrain or caves? Xaero’s Minimap is the mod for you!
With over 34 million downloads, Xaero’s Minimap mod provides many features such as customized maps, freely configure your maps so they suit your playstyle the best, or even use the map to spy on your friends!
First of all, you can choose the style of the map hud on your screen to be either square or circle. The map also displays your coordinate so F3 is no longer needed.
You can even rotate your map, or do a little configuration so the map only shows passive mobs, hostile mobs, slime chunks, and players,… You get the idea!
You can also open the big map and create waypoints, which will be visible on both the map and the world to create a light beam just like the beacon to keep you on track.
In some versions, you can even instantly teleport to the waypoint you just created or to your friends’ waypoint.
Emojiful is a cool mod that allows you and your friends to use pretty much common emojis within Minecraft. You can simply type in the emoji symbol you use on other chat platforms. Or even use the same emoji you see on Discord in the chat panel.
Emojiful does have an autocomplete function like you’re using commands in Minecraft. This way, it will help you find your emoji faster to chat in the correct situation.
And did you know that you can even write your own emoji on a sign in Minecraft?
Finally, this mod also provides a cool GUI in-game to allow you to see all the emojis that have been added to it. You can also search for an emoji here if you can’t find it visually, pretty cool, right?
#5. Biomes O’ Plenty
So you have friends to try all of the mods above with you, but all of you are tired of the normal Minecraft. So why not try Biomes O’ Plenty? This mod adds hundreds of new biomes, either created by vanilla blocks or new blocks in the mod itself.
Compared to a normal biome in Minecraft, biomes in this mod are much more alive and colorful. Some also look realistic and some are inspired by real-world terrain.
