The Realistic Item Drops mod makes it so that the in-game drops of Minecraft feel more realistic when you’re picking them up. One issue that exists in Minecraft, as well as a ton of other games with similar mechanics, is the fact that picking up item drops seems a bit too unnatural since you simply click on an image on the floor and it disappears and gets added to your inventory. While this isn’t that big of an issue in terms of actual gameplay, it’s been a pet peeve for a lot of players who truly like to immerse themselves in the game and, fortunately, the Realistic Item Drops does an excellent job of remedying it.
The Realistic Item Drops mod makes a whole bunch of visuals changes, as well as a few gameplay mechanic changes, to make sure that picking up item drops in the game feels truly realistic and lifelike. Thanks to this mod, items on the ground look like actual items instead of a flat collection of pixels and, alongside this, the items that drop on fluids will actually float on top of said fluids, and this simulates a sense of realism thereby making things a lot more enjoyable and immersive.
Onto the new gameplay mechanics that the Realistic Item Drops mod brings to the table, first and foremost is the fact that you’ll be able to catch items mid-air before they even hit the ground similar to how you’d catch something in real life. You’ll also be able to sprint toss items further and will even be able to manually pick things up by right clicking. Finally, every single setting and mechanic that the Realistic Item Drops mod has can be configured according to your preferences, so you’ll be able to fine-tune it however you want to.
