Minecraft mods tend to only cover one area of technology. Perhaps it includes electricity to power machines or space rockets for interstellar travel. But how about a modpack that starts from the beginning of technology and has you work your way up to the modern era…and beyond?
This is what SevTech Ages does. SevTech Ages contains six ages in total, ranging from the Stone Age all the way to the Futuristic Age.
The Stone Age acts as the tutorial for your adventures and allows you to progress to the Bronze Age once you’ve completed it. To advance through an age, you have to craft a specific item or achieve a specific feat that increases your technical skills to the next era of science.
One thing you’ll learn very quickly is that you can’t mine for iron or diamonds in the Bronze Age. This is because, much like the real-world bronze age, your character’s scientific prowess isn’t high enough to understand what iron and diamonds are, and how to use them.
As such, you’ll find yourself making do with the ores and metals you can use at that specific age. You use these resources to build toward the final goal of that age, and once you completed it, you advance to the next age and unlock certain ores and resources as a reward.
But don’t think you’re the only one advancing! As you get stronger and more knowledgeable about the world around you, so too do the monsters that inhabit your world. The more you advance, the more they, too, get stronger and equip themselves better.
During the stone age, your main threats are skeletons and zombies wielding sharp bone weapons and wearing leather armor. Not too much of a threat, but remember; you have no iron at your disposal, so you’ll be on a level playing field with them.
As you advance and evolve, so too do the monsters. By the time you hit the futuristic age, you’ll be facing down charged-up creepers, boss monsters, and enemies equipped with diamond gear. Better put that new tech to good use!
SevTech has it all for the technologically curious. Machines, space rockets, and even planetary exploration are all there; and if you really want to, you can push the limits of the futuristic age and unlock a bonus tier that lets you play with creative mode-level tools!
SevTech Ages is available on Curseforge, so be sure to give it a try if this piqued your interest!
