The Minecraft experience is nice on its own even in the vanilla version, but if you add mods then this can be even better, and you can take for example the Clay Soldiers Mod. This tiny mod allows you to inset a new set of soldiers that are created out of clay.
This mod adds wars in Minecraft as well as toy animals that aid the Soldiers in battle. This Minecraft mod also lets you arm your soldiers with a ton of different weapons with different abilities and even adds in clay structures.
Of course, the Clay Soldiers Mod Minecraft is great for those that play in singleplayer and just want someone to tag along with them in order to stop feeling alone, as this is an issue that many gamers tend to encounter unfortunately.
A clay soldier is an item you can hold in your hand. It is crafted using a clay block (for substance) and soulsand (for sustaining intelligent life). Once you have a nice little pile in your hands (up to 16), right-click to place them all at once or sneak-right-click to place only one.
They will quickly spread out and begin to roam the landscape. The soldiers walk slow and don’t jump very high, but they have enough arm strength to climb up a single block.
