ATTENTION: the comment section is disabled due to people asking for too much of me when it comes to this mod. I have stated in few places before (comments, GitHub issues), but I'll also state it here. I'm not interested in development of this mod by providing gameplay features. At this point, I only maintain it to be compatible with my other mods that I primarily develop. All gameplay-wise suggestions will be ignored

However, you're welcomed to take over the source code base and make your own morphing mod. My only requirements, if you're going to use my code base is to copy the license, change the name, and give at least some credit (for example in credits section of the mod config).

Make sure to check out Changeling mod. It's a Metamorph's fork which is focused more on gameplay features.

Metamorph (from Metamorphosis ) – a Minecraft mod which allow you to morph into mobs.

Most of vanilla mob morphs have their abilities (preconfigured), meanwhile most of modded morphs only grant you appearance and some attributes like health, unless configured. Morphs can be disabled and configured. See mod's wiki for more information.

Heavily inspired by iChun's Morph mod and zacuke's Shape Shifter Z mod, and works only with Forge for Minecraft 1.10.2, 1.11.2 and 1.12.2.

FAQ

Q: My screen goes up and down. How to fix?
A: Most likely you installed MorePlayerModels mod alongside Metamorph. To fix that, either go to Mod Options > Metamorph > General and enable Disable POV option, or disable POV option in MPM's config and restart the game.

Install

Install Minecraft Forge, download the latest stable version of jar file for available minecraft version. Also install following mods: McLib. Put it in minecraft's mods folder, and launch the game.

After that, Metamorph mod should be installed and will appear in Minecraft's mods menu. If Metamorph didn't appear in the mods menu, then something went wrong.

How to play

To morph into other creatures, you must to acquire a morph first. To acquire a morph, you have to kill a mob, then a ghost of a mob will appear (that's a morph), and when you'll pick it up, you'll acquire a morph.

Once you have at least one morph, you're able to transform into that morph. Use [ and ] keys for advancing through the list of morphs. There are also ' and \ keys for switching between morph variants (you'll see up and down arrows in the selection box if there are morph variants available). Use enter key for transforming into selected morph. To demorph, you scroll left until you focus character with your skin, and then press enter to demorph. Or you can press demorph key (which is . by default).

You retain your morphs even after death (although you can disable retaining of morphs after death in mod options). In creative mode, you can select almost any available morph via Creative Morph Menu which can be opened by pressing B key in the game.

Survival Morph Menu can also be focused, for managing purposes, by pressing N key (default). There you can favorite, remove and filter morphs by favorites. You use the same keys to navigate morphs ([, ], ' and \).

About morphs

Every morph you equip or apply grant you different look, size, and health capacity. Except those properties, every morph also has special abilities, attack and action.

Abilities give special properties to morphs. Chicken morph will slowly fall and get no fall damage. Spider and CaveSpider morphs will be able to climb on the wall. Bat morph will be able to fly and has a night vision.

Attack is an effect which is applied onto attacked entity. For example, if you hit some entity while being in CaveSpider morph, your target will gain poison potion effect. If you'll hit an entity while being in VillagerGolem morph, you'll throw your target high in the air.

Action is a special ability that is triggered by "action key" (which is V by default). Examples: in Rabbit morph, you'll jump high; in Creeper morph, you'll explode like a creeper, and so on.
