Organic Creepers

Why do creepers explode?

To spread their spores and make more creepers, of course!

 

Overview

With this mod, creepers no longer spawn out of thin air.  They actually grow from Creeper Plants, which can be found throughout the world.

All creeper explosions now spread Creeper Spores.  Any Creeper Spore that lands on grass or dirt will grow into an entirely new Creeper Plant.

 

Don't want creepers wandering around?  Better dig up all those Creeper Plants!

 

Compatibility

This mod will be compatible with the 1.12+ TerraFirmaCraft port if/when it is ever released.

It will probably not work with any other mod that replaces Vanilla grass/dirt blocks.

Any mod that has its own creeper variants should continue to function as normal.

 

Rights and Limitations

I'm releasing this under the MIT License, so you can do pretty much whatever you want with this mod as long as you're not a jerk about it.

You want to put it into a ModPack?  Go right ahead.

You want to backport the mod to Minecraft v1.2.1?  That's a little weird, but you do you.
