About Mo‘ Creatures Extended

Mo‘ Creatures Extended stands for continued maintenance of the mod for Minecraft 1.12.2. It‘s completely dependency-free, a lot of the codebase is cleaned up and most apparent bugs are fixed. Further, this means Custom Mob Spawner is no longer needed as we emulated its behavior with the vanilla spawner, greatly enhancing compatibility with other mods in the process.


List of most notable changes so far:

  • Removed all dependencies, spawning is handled entirely with vanilla means
  • Cleaned up codebase, adjust/removed legacy code
  • Revamped spawning behavior and stats of all mobs for better immersion
  • Optimized performance through faster data structures
  • Overhauled config files with options for easy spawning customization
  • Adjusted config values to reasonable defaults
  • Fixed resources, language files and hitboxes
  • Reworked AI
  • Improved breeding
  • Tons of fixes and tweaks to modernize the mod
  • New and improved Wyvern Lair dimension
  • Legacy models and textures returning from very old versions as config options
  • A variety of new features that strive to be in the spirit of the original mod
  • Restoration of old ideas and unused content

NOTICE - If you‘re updating from the old Mo‘ Creatures:

  • Remove Custom Mob Spawner
  • Delete your MoCreatures config folder
