What is Gamemode 4?
Gamemode 4 is a collection of Minecraft command modules to enhance the vanilla survival experience. Gamemode 4 has added varying levels of content from simple ideas such as Bat Grenades to fully fleshed mechanics such as 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.
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 in February of 2014 , various contributors to the project have submitted modules or worked directly with Sparks. This has now been expanded with the addition of other core developers Bloo___ (formerly Bluefire610) and SpecialBuilder32.
