There aren’t many Minecraft mods that give players the ability to send hundreds of soldiers into battle against one another. But that’s exactly what the Clay Soldiers Mod does. There’s one catch: the soldiers are about half a block tall and they’re made of clay.
Players can create soldiers using just two ingredients: clay and soulsand. Up to 16 soldiers can be stacked in your hand at one time, and after players release soldiers into the world, they will immediately start exploring. By default, clay soldiers are a neutral grey color when they first spawn. However, the true mayhem starts when players bring out the colored dyes. You can color soldiers with all of the following dyes:
After being dyed a particular color, soldiers will immediately begin to attack any differently colored soldiers. Soldiers can pick up weapons like sticks or use leather as armor, and you can even send soldiers into battle riding on horses or flying Pegasus mounts.
This isn’t just some free-form battlefield simulator, either. Soldiers can start to construct their own miniature civilizations. You can give soldiers wooden blocks and they will start crafting forts, for example, and they’ll defend these forts to the death if needed. Soldiers can even jump off of cliffs using parachutes to quickly enter the battle. Ultimately, you can set up some pretty epic battle scenes using the Clay Soldiers Mod.
The way you play the Clay Soldiers Mod is entirely up to you. Some players create hundreds of clay soldiers and give them the tools needed to create a civilization. Others just want to watch clay soldiers kill each other in a short, intense battle.
The Clay Soldiers Mod is extremely well thought-out. Players can give certain items to soldiers in order to create an advantage for a particular color. Giving sugar to soldiers will cause them to speed up, for example, and redstone dust can be used as a blinding powder. From horses to ranged weapons and every battle weapon in between, the Clay Soldiers Mod is a great way to become ruler of your own little clay nation. You can even jump into the action yourself using the ‘Clay cam’.
Whether you want to watch colored clay soldiers ride into battle on flying Pegasus mounts or you want to set up an epic battle that features thousands of colored clay soldiers attacking one another, the Clay Soldiers Mod allows you to do just about anything.
