There are numerous Minecraft enthusiasts who are constructing fantastic structures, while this YouTuber plays with enchanted items.
Over the course of the last decade or so, one thing has remained relatively constant: Minecraft’s popularity. Despite its age, it has been one of the best-selling games of 2022 so far, and despite its ups and downs, it continues to be a winning formula in the industry. Its success can be attributed to the fact that players can essentially do whatever they want in the game. Sometimes, this creativity can extend beyond the creation of physical objects.
Consider Mysticat, a YouTuber. In their most recent Minecraft video, they decided to tinker with coding in order to create enchanted items. The outcome is some fairly intriguing items. One of the enchantments they were able to perform was to transform a sword into a helicopter. In essence, whenever it is swung, it spins and propels the player upwards. They also created a bow and arrow that creates a vortex and draws in any nearby life form. In addition, there was the axe that can cause a server to crash because it can remove all dirt blocks at once.
In Minecraft’s original state, enchanted items can be quite useful. Players can gain an advantage over hostile foes by granting a sword the ability to “smite” with ease or the ability to push back a mob. It certainly adds a lot more depth to the game’s tools and weapons, and what Mysticat has done takes this concept even further, perhaps into sillier territory, though even the enchanted items they code themselves, such as the auto-aiming arrow, have some practical applications.
Anyone who is familiar with this YouTuber knows that they are capable of creating some intriguing projects within the sandbox game developed by Mojang. Previously, it was possible to create a fully-drivable tank in Minecraft. In addition, they’ve created a giant version of Frogger/Crossy Road and used artificial intelligence to create some fairly disturbing textures for the game.
Despite all this silliness and the game’s generally simple visuals, Minecraft has a surprisingly rich lore, though fans don’t really return for the story. The game’s near-infinite replayability is what makes it so popular, and the fact that it can be modified and customized in so many ways only sweetens the deal.
