Although, this mod is quite and old one and has not been updated since the end of the year 2018. Still it is a fun mod to have and consist of some really cool features like being able to build new ships to take off to space, as well as elements that let you help build bases and explore planets in a fun and intuitive way.

Well, not entirely the space type Mod that you had seen in case of the Galacticraft Minecraft Mod. However, just as the name itself might suggest, the game is entirely based on Star Wars. And if you are a fan of Star Wars like me, who would do anything it takes to stop the Dark Forces, then the mod is absolutely meant for you.

Top 7 Minecraft Like Space Games

Now, that we have seen and covered some of the most popular Minecraft space mods out there. Let us head to the main topic at hand where we look into some of the Top best Minecraft Alternatives out there.

1. Space Engineers

With a 9 out of 10 rating over steam, I don’t think the game will need any further appraisals from me, specially when it comes to the fact that how popular the game has been with players from all across the globe, these many years since its official release in the year 2013.

According to me and I know pretty much everyone who have played this game would agree, this game is the perfect blend of space, engineering, exploration and survival out there and I could not have think of a rather better game than Space Engineers to be honest.

Space Engineers

Firstly, since the game itself follows the Open World methodology of gameplay, being able to move in any direction you desire as well as explore any part of the map according to your will is something which is very much possible here at Space Engineers.

Secondly, just as the later part of the name may very well suggest, the ‘Engineer’ part is where all the building and breaking starts to play its role. Apart from being an open-world game, Space Engineer is also one of the best Sand Box game out there so to speak. And when it is a Sand Box game we are talking, the ability to build ships and stations with resources you gain while exploring the distant horizons of space is all very much possible and a whole lot fun inside the game. The experience is truly what I would call ‘a mesmerizing’ one, everyone should definitely try at least once.

2. Starmade


There are mainly two major modes in this game you can play in. One being the Single Player for just one person to explore and enjoy on their own. And the other being the Multiplayer Mode, where you can interact with other Star Made players from all across the globe over the Internet. All you have to do while playing in Multiplayer mode is create a server and invite people you want to play with.

3. The Forest

The Forest 

Coming back to the main details of the game, well if you love the dark and would not mind a series of petrifying hostile encounters in the wild, then this game I would say has been made for you. And the reason I am sure that this game most definitely will not disappoint you is due to its 9 out of 10 ranking over Steam itself. So, when it comes to gameplay experience and the kind of things that the game has to offer, there just cant be any doubts.

4. Roblox


Being able to create your own very games with your own very rules and plot had always been a fascinating idea. And all of that is very much possible today, with the Roblox gaming and game creation platform.

Here, you can create and play your own very games quite easily and effortlessly, making it a type of approach to the world of gaming like never before. Also, for many it can also be a place to earn some few bucks too once in a while.

Suppose, you manage to create a game which is liked by quite a number of people, then you too can start going selling your game out on the very Roblox platform itself. So, if you are thinking of a gaming hobbie to earn you a few extra bucks, then this may just be the ideal place for you to start on that journey of yours.

5. Ark: Survival Evolved

Ark: Survival Evolved

In addition to that you will also need to build shelters for protection from other hostile tribes man like yours as well as find the means to construct weapons so that you can fight of predators along with defending yourself from them.

The other great thing I absolutely love about this game when it comes to gameplay is the Multiplayer Mode where you get to play with your friends as well as join tribes and work and share together with resources and shelter to play, evolve and survive inside this epic game. And hence, the name Ark: Survival Evolved.

6. Terasology


The whole concept of the game is pretty much typical as to that of Minecraft, however the Voxel world addition along with cube elements is something which truly makes Terasology hold the potential to become something even better than Minecraft. And if there are smart developers out there ready to take the game up to perfection, then it will not be long that you will have with yourself something even better and more fun than Minecraft.

7. Lego World

Lego World

And since it as an Open World Sandbox game as it is expected, out here a player can build anything of his desire simply with the combination of blocks and parts they can collect in the beautiful world of Digital Lego.

The two major modes of Gameplay you will find in this game is Single Player and Multiplayer, where Single player obviously would mean that you could play it all on your own without having to stay connected to the Internet.

Whereas in case of Multiplayer you can build your Lego world as well as have fun in it with your friends and families just like the old times, but while connected to the Internet.
