An updated version of Better Animals Plus which adds attack animations and greatly improves AI of several animals (see videos below for comparison). I am not the author of Better Animals Plus, this is a fork of the project only for 1.12. Go check out the original mod and support them for their great work!



Moose Animation *BEFORE*



Moose Animation *AFTER*



  • The limb swing amount for animal animations were too high > this version reduces the limb swing amount


  • Many animals were missing attack animations and just ran at the player > this version adds attack animations have been added to the bear, wolf, walrus, zotzpyre, boar, and moose


  • Deer would not flee from the player when they were near > this version adds deer fleeing animations (their tail raises too) and their pathing has been updated too


  • Often larger mobs would spin in circles, especially bears and moose > this version fixes the random glitchy mob spinning


  • Sharks would bash their heads into the beach when chasing players on land > this version both fixes the glitchy animation when above water and drops aggro if they player is on land


  • Zotzpyre were not a threat and stood there not moving > in this version they are now a threat! Zotzpyre will leap at you and have very smart AI. Also, when attaching to the player their camera is zoomed to third person and reverts back to the original angle when it dismounts


  • Wolves & bears can now knock down and stun their target for a few seconds


 Planned: this version backports (octopus & squid), however, their AI and animations are currently limited
