Minecraft Modder adds physics to the game, play Jenga

Anyone who plays Minecraft knows how the game’s physics work, or not, as the case may be, but someone on YouTube manages to change all that.

A YouTuber uploaded a video showing them incorporating real physics into Minecraft so they can play a giant game of Jenga with their friends. As a video game known for its unusual physics, most who come across it are quick to recognize that gravity doesn’t quite work the way it should. While the player drops as normal and some things like sand and gravel are in line with regular physics, just about anything else can be left up in the air. It’s part of its charm, in a way.


With Mojang continuing to release updates for Minecraft, the fan community works hard to keep the game in the limelight by building all sorts of cool builds or tweaking things so that it becomes a different experience. While the vanilla title contains an almost endless amount of things to do, there are people who really like to change up the formula. In this case, it seems that it is actually possible to implement physics in the game.

As spotted by PCGamesN, YouTuber SystemZee created his own version of Jenga in Minecraft. However, to make it work properly, they had to implement realistic physics into the game. It seemed like something that might just be impossible. However, gravity is actually added to the game, and while the video doesn’t describe exactly how the modder and his friend Wither did it, the result is what anyone would expect. Then SystemZee designed their own huge Jenga tower and invited other YouTubers including Fundy to join in the game, with blocks falling much more realistically than in the base. Minecraft live.

In fact, players like Fundy themselves are no strangers to engaging in weird and wonderful projects in the blocky version of the open world. A while ago they were able to make a giant version of Tetris in Minecraft which also had falling blocks, although these weren’t due to any physics implementation, as they were powered by redstone. Examples like this really highlight what can be done in this once indie title.

Over the years, Minecraft has turned into a monster, becoming one of the best-selling games even in 2022. Considering it originally came out in 2011, or 2009 for those counting the alpha releases, it’s amazing that the game managed to stand the test of time for more than a decade. And there is always someone who can implement something that others never thought possible.

Minecraft is now available for Mobile, PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
