If you have often found yourself wondering why you can’t play Civilization from a first person perspective, or why you can’t found a country in Minecraft, today is your lucky day*. Because today is the day you learn about Civcraft, an amazing server side mod for Minecraft which turns it into a massively multiplayer first person Civilization, in which you and a bunch of other people form nations and attempt to conquer the world.

As VG247 spotted, CivCraft has players stake out claims for their nations, then build camps, farms, mines and stores and research new technologies to build new structures and expand their empires.

Naturally, building a civilisation requires a lot of work, but once you have a town going you can sell stuff at the bank and the global market. Once you’ve got your civilization up and going though, things open up significantly and you’ll be able to research new tech like Cannon Towers, and wage war on your neighbours.

It’s a huge and intricate mod, but there is a giant wiki to help you get started and a stack of servers run the mod constantly, so you can join in a currently in progress game until you get the hang of things. Check out the official site to see servers, as well as links to the wiki and download.

*Unless you already knew about CivCraft, in which case shoosh.

Looking at the screenshot I thought this was like an open sourced game… then I realized it was a minecraft mod and went… Holyshit!

Yeah I definitely want to get in on some of this. Mod looks fantastic.
