What is Gamemode 4?
Gamemode 4 is a collection of Minecraft command modules to designed to change and enhance the vanilla survival experience. Each module adds a set of custom features to the game, such as exploding bats or custom terrain. Gamemode 4 has varying levels and sizes of content from simple additions like Bat Grenades to completely new complex mechanics like Zauber Cauldrons. These additions are named modules because of their modular nature. It is encouraged to mix and match modules as you please to create your own custom experience.
Modules are currently available for Minecraft Java Edition 1.13+ as data packs from our website. Data packs are a collection of function, advancement, and other files that the vanilla game can read to modify the game and it's behavior.
Who Created Gamemode 4?
Gamemode 4 was originally created by Sparks. He has said:
"I was inspired by the new command blocks and their potential for making cool stuff and since I was doing a lot of YouTube at the time I thought it would make a nice showcase series that the community could get involved with too."
Created on February 21st of 2014 , various contributors to the project have submitted modules or worked directly with Sparks since then to expand Gamemode 4 to what it is today.
