Ancient Warfare is a modification for Minecraft that adds a variety of game enhancements; new blocks, new entities, and a template based world-generation structure generator.

Ancient Warfare Mod

Ancient Warfare has been split into a multi-module release. There is a single Core module that all other modules rely on for shared functionality. Each other module may be installed individually, or in any other combination desired. The non-core modules are – Automation, NPCs, Structure Generation, and Vehicles. Each of these modules focuses on a single aspect of the mod.

  • Core Module: Adds core functionality and shared code needed by all other modules.
  • Structure Module: Adds template based structure generation during World Gen. Includes in-game tools for creation of new templates, as well as a few tools to aid in map creation in general.
  • Automation Module: Includes machines to automate crop farming, tree farming, misc resource farming (mushroom, reed, cactus), animal farming, mining, and resource processing (ores). Also includes a full featured MJ and RF compatible energy transport network.
  • NPC Module: Adds Player recruitable NPC for combat and utility purposes. Multiple varieties of combat NPC are available (melee, ranged, medic, others), as well as several varieties of non-combat/utility NPCs (worker, item courier, barterer/trader).
