So I heard you were talking crap about Minecraft's difficulty?


Download on modrinth


⚠️ NOTICE: SIHYWTCAMD is moving to Modrinth!

The latest versions of SIHYWTCAMD (for Minecraft 1.20 and newer) can be downloaded from our official Modrinth page instead. Our Modrinth page is the only official places to download SIHYWTCAMD! If you see newer versions of SIHYWTCAMD on CurseForge, beware: They may not be what you expect, or worse, they may contain malware!


The mod is fully configurable to enable only changes that you like (no exception, see Changelog)

Configs have been reworked (again) to make them clearer. A mob can be found in its most significant category only (ex: endermite in end, instead of arthropod)

Make sure to copy your old config somewhere to remember how you setted up!



sihywtcamc: So I Heard You Were Talking Crap About Minecraft's Combat? (basically a combat update). Increase pleasure using both of these mods!



This mod aims to increase Minecraft's difficulty. Basically, almost every hostile mob has been reworked, from small changes to huge ones. Some of them are inspired by the Bedrock edition which is a bit different (and often harder) than the Java one. Although we've changed almost every mob already, feel free to ask for new features or changes in the comment section. Indeed, don't hesitate to share your experience and tell me if you think I should change values about spawning etc to make the experience better =)

For a short overview of the mod, you can check this video. Thank you @bstylia14 !

Mobs: You don't scare me

* Mobs that have a flee entity goal don't flee if the entity has less than half health

* So this applies to skeleton, witch, creeper, ... This also apply to phantoms even though it's not a flee goal

* Most hostile mobs are now hostile to villagers

* This includes the same than before + spiders (hostile only at night), skeletons, strays, and witches


Arthropods: Sneaky sneaky

* Don't get fall damage

* Larvae (silverfish and endermite) spawn with a bonus speed multiplying their speed up to 1.5 depending on local difficulty

* Silverfishes are infesting the whole overworld (more than in mountains, below 0), and so mountains are even more infested than before


Zombie: I'm already dead

* Steal life on attack

* Have a natural knockback resistance

* Leader zombies are now split into leader and siege ones, with different bonuses

* Can spawn as a brainless zombie, that won't attack unless you attack them

  * Leader: 5-10% spawn chance, increased health and spawn reinforcement

  * Siege: 10-15% spawn chance, can break doors

  * Brainless: 25-20% spawn chance, no target goal

  * Normal ones: 60-55% spawn chance

Husk: The Unburnt, The Breaker of Chains, The Mother of Dragons, ... Wait? I meant I can't burn
* Is no longer affected by fire damages, but still seems on fire

* Still get damage from being in lava

Drowned: Water is my world
* Spawns more often with a trident, 15% as in Bedrock version (was 6.66%)
* Increased velocity in water

* Baby drowned can spawn riding a guardian (10 to 20% chance)

* Better swimming animation


Creeper: Bim bam BOOM

* Don't get damage from explosions. Instead, they ignite

* Its explosion deals mining fatigue and weakness effects, duration depending on your distance with the creeper

Skeleton: Stay within reach, don't move, perfect!
* Runs away from the player

* Knows a bit how to swim
* Those previous changes also apply to stray

Have 5% chance to spawn with spectral arrows only

* Shoots freezing arrows

Enderman: Look into my eyes, it's where my demons hide
* Player gets blindness (7.5 seconds) when staring at an enderman for the first time, aka when you aggro an enderman by staring at it. You won't get the effect if you stare at them again, or if you aggro them without staring at them.


Endermite: Infested
* Chorus plants are infested with endermites

Spider: The Mother of Dragons, ... Wait, still not?
* Can spawn other weaker spiders on death, their number depends on local difficulty
* 1/10 chance to spawn weaker spiders. 3-5 spawned on lowest difficulty, 6-8 on highest difficulty
* Weaker spiders are babies that deal half damage and have half health
* This change doesn't apply to cave spider

* Adults can spit webs at targets that spawn a messy cobweb on collision with an entity

* Messy cobweb can't be placed on water, so you're immune on water

* Messy cobweb despawns after 5 to 10s and don't drop strings


Cave spider: I'm a cave spider, not a mineshaft spider

* Cave spider can spawn naturally in caves. The deeper they try to spawn, the most possible it is for them to really spawn. They can spawn in group of 1 to 3. Note that they may not spawn at all using 1.18 preview datapack, as it override every mob spawn in biomes.

* Cave spider jockey has a slight chance to spawn (can't spawn from a cave spider spawner!)

* Can spawn with 1 more size depending on local difficulty
* Can fuse with another same-sized slime on collision if their size is small or normal (1 or 2)

* Can fuse only once, its children won't be able to fuse again

* This change doesn't apply to magma cube


Magma cube: This - cube is on fiiiiiiire
* Sets on fire on collision, fire duration depends on size
