Happy 3rd Anniversary to our Minecraft server! Ah, it seems like just yesterday that we were burning down the world with fiery chickens and poorly constructed lava towers. There have been so many changes to the game since alpha- new biomes, new blocks, new code. And there is so much more to come! What was your favorite change to the game? What are you looking forward to the most in the upcoming update? Thanks for a great three years and let's continue the fun for at least three more!

Hooray for the Marqa-Server!  I think the updates to the adventure/survival mode, the upcoming biomes, and horses have been the best things so far.  Ooooh, and whenever pumpkins/jack-o-lanterns were added, that was also one of my favorite moments Smile

Three years since Ember pressured the shit out of me for three days to host the server. I can still remember that very first day, with Ember, CT, Mis, and I wandering the virgin wilderness of World 1.

Speaking of Ember effortlessly manipulating me to do what she wants... Wait til you see what we have in store for our upcoming anniversary world. We're trying something we've never done before and I think you all going to love it.

I'm not sure Bunny's are in-game animals just yet Wink  Although I hear there's some work on stain glass coming to the game via a dev-snapshot of Minecraft, unless I misunderstood recent conversations on Minecraft via TS.

Yes, stained glass will be included when the game is updated to 1.7! Bunnies will come shortly after the modding API is set up. Ember and I have agreed that the first mod to be used will be the Mo' Creatures Mod. Sadly, there is no timetable for that.

Friendly mobs

NameDescription
HorsesHorses do not attack you, but they can still hurt you. They will kick you off if you ride it when they aren't tamed. When killed, they drop leather. They can be bred and tamed (check breeding/taming details). They will not despawn when tamed, and have health, which they can recover by being fed wheat. There are over 36 types all up and can be bred and given essences of light, undead, fire and darkness to change them into various things e.g. (Bat horse, Unicorn, Nightmare, Pegasus, Black Pegasus and Fairy Horse).
BirdsThere are 6 different types of birds: Dove, Crow, Blue Gross Beak, Cardinal, Canary and Parrot, each one with a different sound. They will eat seeds if you drop them on the ground in their sight. Right-clicking a tamed bird will place it on your head. Once a bird is placed on your head, you will not take fall damage. Instead you will "glide" to the ground slowly.
InsectsIncluding butterflies, flies, bees, fireflies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, maggots, ants, cockroaches, beetles and crickets.
TurkeysTurkeys drop raw turkey when killed that can be cooked. Can be tamed with melon seeds.
OstrichesOstriches spawn in plains and desert biomes. You can find male, females and chicks. The males will fight back if attacked.
SnailsThey're slow and they hide in their shells, except when they don't have a shell. Snails drop slime balls.
RabbitsRabbits only jump around aimlessly. They are brown, white, or light brown with a little pink nose. Right clicking on them will place them on your head. Right clicking them once they are on your head will make them jump off of you. Having a rabbit on your head while riding a horse will considerably speed it up.
DolphinsDolphins are tameable and rideable and will not attack you unless you attack them. They drop raw fish when killed. Tamed with raw fish.
Elephants and MammothsElephants spawn on Deserts, Jungles, Plains and Forests. Mammoths spawn on cold biomes. Elephants drop Hide. A calf elephant can be tamed by giving it 10 Sugar lumps or 5 cakes. (Most players give them 10 sugar lumps as cake takes quite a lot to craft!) Tamed elephants are healed with baked potatoes, bread or haystacks. A harness can be put on tamed adult elephants to make them rideable and attach extra things.
Small fishThey come in ten different colors (excluding piranhas). They drop raw fish and fish eggs. They can be caught by right clicking on them with a full fishbowl and with a fish net. It's always nice to have a bowl of fish in your minecraft house!
KittiesCats can be tamed and become the player's pets. Litter boxes and cat food can be crafted for them. When provoked, they will scratch the player.
Komodo DragonsKomodo dragons spawn on swamps and plains.  They attack small animals and players. Komodo dragons poison their prey. They drop reptile hide and the bigger Komodo Dragons have a 25% chance of dropping eggs. An egg can be hatched if placed near a torch and the resulting baby Komodo Dragon will be tamed. Tamed Komodo dragon can be healed by giving it raw rat or raw turkey. A saddle can be put on a Tamed adult Komodo dragon so it can be ridden. They drop Reptile Hide.
MiceMice scurry about squeaking and spawn during the day. They drop seeds when killed. They can be quite annoying to have scurrying around your house!
DeerDeer run away from anything bigger than a chicken and they drop leather and raw pork chops when killed. They usually spawn on plains.
DucksDucks act just like chickens and are retextured. They drop feathers when killed and/or raw chicken.
GoatsGoats are really easy to tame, just drop any edible(food) item nearby. Once tamed, you can name them. You can also change the name by right clicking on the goat while holding a medallion

Tamed and wild goats will follow you if you are carrying any edible items in your hand. You can use a rope on tamed goat to make them follow you You can milk female goats. Female goats don't have a goatie and have shorter horns Don't try to milk a male goat. It won't like it! Male goats will fight back if provoked. They will also fight between themselves. They won't fight to death and will calm down after a short while. Goats are quite omnivorous. They will eat ANY item or floating blocks that are nearby. Even diamonds. If you die next to a goat it will have a feast with your dropped items. You have been warned...

TurtlesTurtles are slow and small mobs that spawn near water. Wild turtles draw their head into their shells if you come near. Wild turtles can be flipped over by right-clicking; they are more vulnerable to attack this way. Turtles drop between 1 and 2 chests and/or 0 - 2 turtle meat when killed. To tame press Q with sugar cane in hand near them. If you named them after the ninja turtles you'll get a surprise!
Manta RaysManta rays are large but peaceful creatures that swim in the water. They can be ridden by right-clicking on them. Can be tamed with fish nets.

[edit] Neutral mobs

NameDescription
BearsThey only attack the player if you attack them. They drop fur or fish when killed. Polar Bears will attack on sight, Grizzly and Black Bears are neutral. Pandas can be tamed with sugar cane.
CrocodilesCrocodiles will roam around near beaches in the swamp biomes, sometimes they will remain static.

Don't be fooled by a 'sleeping' crocodile, they are ready to attack and their speed can surprise you. They are very aggressive and fast in the water. Crocodiles snatch prey with their jaws, they will try to carry their prey to the water, where they will perform a death roll. If a crocodile has caught you, you can try to get free by attacking it, but not all the hits will land. It's not that easy to escape crocodile's jaws, just like in nature. Crocodiles drop hides that can be used to craft 'Croc' armor, equivalent to iron armor.

SnakesThere are eight different kinds of snakes including a couple of shy snakes that will run away from the player and venomous snakes like corals, cobras, and rattle snakes. There are also aggressive pythons, which are the biggest snake in the mod.

Different kind of snakes spawn based on the biomes. Rattlesnakes only spawn in deserts, while pythons spawn in swamps and jungles

Snakes mind their own business, if you get too close they will alert and hiss, giving you time to run away. If you don't they will attack you.

A player carrying a bird or mouse will attract the nearby snakes. They hunt down small creatures

You can obtain snake eggs. A snake egg that is dropped near a torch will hatch and the baby snake will be tamed and can be picked up. tamed snakes won't attack the player.

BoarsSimilar to pigs. Boars are brown and will attack the player if harmed or if the player gets too close. Boars will only attack other animals and the player when they are hungry. They deal around 2 hearts of damage. They drop hide or raw pork when killed.
Wild WolvesThese will not attack the player unless they are harmed or if it is night, however they will attack Chickens and Ducks during the day. They drop leather when killed. Note that these do not replace the wolves from vanilla Minecraft.
FoxesFoxes will only attack mobs that are smaller than them. They will only attack you if you attack them. Drops 1 piece of leather when killed. Foxes can be tamed with raw turkey meat. Heal them with raw rat meat. Arctic Foxes can be found in Snow Biomes and tamed the same way.
RatsDuring the day, rats are neutral towards the player, but at night or in caves they are aggressive and will attack on sight. Rats drop raw rat when killed.
Sting raysSting rays will poison you if you get too close, but will not actively attack you. They don't drop anything. Can be tamed with a fish net.
JellyfishJellyfish will spawn on most waters. They are translucent and propel with pulsating movements. They are also luminescent at night. You can get poisoned if you get too close. Jellyfish drop slimeballs. They can be tamed with fishnets :3

[edit] Aggressive mobs

NameDescription
SharksSharks will kill anything that falls on the water except for squid. For breeding/taming details check mob details. They have a 10% drop rate for Shark Eggs and a 60% drop rate for shark teeth when killed. If in a boat around Shark, the shark will attack the boat and after a while destroy it. The shark teeth can be used to craft chain armor, or made into an unenchantable Shark Sword.
Big CatsBig Cats include lions, tigers, cheetahs, snow leopards, and panthers. Male lions will attack the player on sight and are extremely dangerous. Female lions will only attack the player if the player attacks them or another lion nearby. They drop Big Cat Claws and leather when killed. They can also be tamed if a cub is found, by throwing raw fish or raw porkchops, and can be named by using a medallion.
Wyvern (available in the dev-release)Wyverns are poisonous drakes, they can be found on the WyvernLair. Wyvern eggs can be obtained by slaying wyverns (but only on the wyvern lair). A wyvern has a 10% chance of dropping an egg. The egg can be hatched in the Overworld by placing it near a torch and once the Wyvern grows, it can be saddled and armored. They come in five different colors; light green, dark green, orange, red, and yellow. Essence of undead, light, darkness, and fire do work on the Wyvern.
Polar BearsOnly spawn on snow and will attack the player on sight. They drop Hide when killed.
PiranhasThese tiny fish will attack the player on sight. They drop piranha eggs when killed. They are somewhat easy to spot, since they are a bright red.
HellratsHellrats spawn in the Nether and are aggressive, attacking the player on sight. Hellrats drop redstone and/or Fire when killed.
ScorpionsThere are 4 classes of scorpions: Orange Common(Overland spawn), Black Cave(Cave spawn), Blue Frost(Snow biome spawn) and Red Nether(Netherland Spawn).

Common has a chance of Poisoning you in one of their hits, Cave procs blindness, Frost can make you slower, and Nether can set you on fire. Every scorpion behaves like spiders, neutral at day, hostile at night, and can jump 2 blocks and over gates. Rarely you will encounter a mother scorpion that will have 3-4 baby scorpions on her back. When the mother is killed the babies fall to the ground and run around frantically and are neutral unless attacked. If killed baby scorpions drop string. You can pick these babies up with an empty hand and a naming window will pop up so that they may be automatically tamed. They will then start to grow which take 1-2 minecraft days. Once tamed they will attack mobs or even other scorpions and pets sometimes.

WraithCan fly and will attack the player on sight. Drops gunpowder when killed.
Fire WraithCan fly and its melee attack will usually set the player on fire (which will not extinguish unless water is used), it can be seen from far away because of the flames that engulf it's body. It drops redstone when killed and only spawns on the hard difficulty. Fire Wraiths will spawn in the Nether as well as the surface world.
WerewolfDuring the day the werewolf is in human form and shouts, "Help me!". When they are hit, they yell or say "Stop it, you're hurting me!". At night, it transforms into a humanoid wolf. They can be easily harmed with gold tools as silver is substituted for gold. Other weapons take many hits to kill them. They have the ability to sprint while walking on four legs. The human form can drop wooden sticks and tools, the wolf can drop iron tools and a golden apple. They also are able to move very fast upon chasing the player onto ice. This is useful if being pursued because the werewolf will slide very far away, making them no longer a threat, as long as you can shuffle around to avoid them.
GolemGolems spawn at night, and initially consists of only three blocks: the Head, the Core and a valuable ore cube. When the Golem is near a player, it activates and forms its body.

Golems have a powerful melee attack, they also have a ranged attack, where the Golem throws one of the blocks of its arms.

When a Golem is attacked, there is a chance to destroy one of its blocks. The chance of destroying a block depends on the difficulty level. If the chest is open and the core of the golem is exposed, it will suffer damage.

As the Golem suffers damage, it becomes more dangerous. A hint of the danger level of the golem is the color of its power aura. Blue is seen in a Golem that is not attacking. Yellow on a Golem that has started attack, Orange on the Golem that has suffered considerable damage. Red is seen on a Golem about to explode.

The Golem will constantly try to acquire replacement blocks. Every time a block is acquired, the Golem is healed (the amount of the healing depends also on the difficulty level)

It may be wise to look for shelter when the Golem power aura is red, as there is not too much time before the Golem explodes.

When a Golem dies, it drops all of the blocks that were part of its body (including the valuable ore cube).

OgresExtremely dangerous and will attack on sight. They destroy blocks by smashing them with their big hands. There are 3 types of ogres: Regular, Fire, and Cave. Regular destroy blocks like the other, fire can set the area surrounding him in fire, and cave will only spawn in dark caves. Regular ogres drop obsidian, fire ogres drop fire (item) to craft a chain armor and cave ogres drops diamonds.

Mini Golems The mini golem is not as dangerous as the regular golem but could still take blocks from its surroundings.They pick up single blocks and throw it at the player.When fighting,you can use any tool.Pickaxes and swords do the most damage.Same as the regular golems,they have a core.The color blue means it didn't attack.Yellow means it just started attacking.Orange means it took considerable damage.Red means its about to explode.They drop iron when killed.

[edit] Planned

  • Squirrels: Dr. Zhark said that he would include them if Mo' Creatures was profiled, or, at least, mentioned in PCGamer and Narwals as mentioned in the readme of 1.2.5. As of Mo' Creatures V4 for MC 1.4.7, there are still no squirrels.

Its worth noting that Mojang has NOT said when the modding API will be ready, so don't expect it to be around the corner. It could be a year.
