Say goodbye to those annoying and ugly Testificates! Minecraft Comes Alive (MCA) aims to give the original villagers an expanded use within the game.


Follow/subscribe to @SheWolfDeadly for Minecraft Let's Plays, MCA updates, and more!




  • "Hrrh!" Villagers are no longer Caveman Squidwards and no longer make sound. They are now male or female humans with over 250 unique skins.
  • You can interact with villagers in many ways, such as chatting with them, asking them to follow you, hiring them to do work, giving them gifts, and more!
  • Interacting with villagers builds relationships. Get your relationship high enough, and you'll be able to marry a villager.
  • Once you're married, you can have children. Children will grow up over time and do many different chores for you.
  • Children eventually grow up into adults, who can get married and have children of their own.
  • You can marry other players and have children in SMP and LAN.
  • MCA will change the way you play hardcore mode forever. Playing in hardcore unlocks a small, but game-changing super-secret feature. (not present in recent versions, sorry!)
  • There's no loss of original Minecraft functionality. MCA villagers can be traded with, and any modded villagers are not overwritten with MCA villagers.

Note: MCA connects to a remote server to check for updates and also send us crash reports. This can be disabled.


MCA may be downloaded from CurseForge (where you're at right now!) or our website.

MCA requires RadixCore in order to function. Click here to be brought to its CurseForge page.


Feeling generous? You can to help support us or pledge to us on Patreon .

Unfortunately there's always the chance of running into a bug while playing MCA. You have five options when reporting a bug.


Do nothing - That's right. If your game crashes while you are playing, you don't have to tell us. We will automatically be notified and your crash report will be sent to us. If you never make it into the game, though, we won't receive that, so let us know you are having that sort of issue!


Post on this page - Feel free to post on this page if you have any issues. Myself or a member of the community will be able to help you.


Create an issue on GitHub - This requires a GitHub account, which is free. We usually respond within a few minutes. You will also be automatically notified when the issue is fixed. Please include your Minecraft version and MCA version. Go to our Issue Tracker to create an issue.


Send a private message - You can send your question or bug report via private message to me here on the forums. While I may not respond, all private messages are read.


Send an e-mail - If you don't have an account on the forums, you can send us an e-mail. Send all e-mails to [email protected] Please do not send suggestions.
