Wildcraft: Advanced animals and realistic genetics in Minecraft!

Have you ever wished Minecraft's animals weren't so mundane?  That wolves could do more than just fall into lava and die, and that cats didn't just scare off creepers?  If so, you've come to the right place!

WildCraft is an all-new breed of animal mod that implements an advanced genetic system based off real-world animal genetics! With dozens of possible markings to breed for, there are literally hundreds of combinations for each species!  And now, you can also train your animals to increase their stats, and breed them in hopes of developing an even stronger line!  The possibilities are endless!

For more detailed information, please check out the official wiki !

The update is here!

The update has arrived!  This update introduces an inheritable, randomized statistics and level up system, new behaviors, and a configuration file and GUI!  It also adds Biomes O'Plenty compatibility, allowing wolves to spawn in BOP biomes, and fixes several bugs from the previous version.


Previous Updates:

Update 1.0

WildCraft's 1.0 update has finally arrived!  This update introduces a re-worked wolf with advanced genetics and level-ups! There is still some work to be done on the training system and on optimizing the mod for user-friendliness, but that content will be released in smaller patches as the mod develops, based off your feedback!

This mod has NOT been tested for server use.
