When you play Minecraft, one of the most important things that you need to be concerned about is definitely the way you move. Normal movement in Minecraft can be thought of as being very restrictive, but thankfully with the help of the Smart Moving Mod (Unlimited Moves) you will be able to enhance it, as the package includes new and better animations, as well as numerous other functions that will help you enhance your game experience.

Smart Moving 1.8

With the help of Smart Moving Mod you will not be limited to the normal moves such as walking, sprinting or crouching any more, instead you will be able to focus on more interesting types of movement such as climbing over large obstacles, going prone and so on.


Thanks to this mod, you will have the unique opportunity to activate a simpler way to walk within the world of Minecraft, one that is very easy to perform.

The Smart Moving Mod 1.10.2 allows you access to various movement types that weren’t available beforehand. For example, you will be able to climb the gaps in walls, ceilings, get up close and use the hanging vines then, if you want, you will get the opportunity to jump off walls when you are climbing.

This mod changes the behaviour of its features depending on the content of the configuration file “smart_moving_options.txt” in the “.minecraft” directory of your minecraft installation.

Currently the difficulty levels “Easy”, “Medium” and “Hard” are configured. You can switch between those in-game by pressing F9 (the exact button can be changed too)

More information about the configuration of this mod is included in its readme and option files.

Previous option files like “smart_climbing_options.txt” and “smart_ladder_climbing_speed_options.txt” are still accepted but their content is eventually overridden by the content of existing more actual option files.

If no option files are present at all, the default option values (all features, default configuration) will be used.

If an option is not present in the files, the corresponding default value will be used.

The option “move.options.version” will be used for cross version compatibility.
