When other people hear 'Craftable Animals', they think "Why?". When I hear
'Craftable Animals', I think "Why not?".
This mod adds a variety of tools centered around animals. The main features include:
- crafting animals and placing them anywhere in the world
- transporting and modifying animals
- creating and changing spawners
- applying armor to animals, even those that don't support armor by default
- creating holograms of animals
- turning animals into babys/adults
- wearing animals as a helmet
- create variations of animals that don't exist in vanilla Minecraft (e.g. a creeper jockey)
- ingame documentation
There are hundreds of animals, including all vanilla mobs. Even MoCreatures are available.
For the latest documantation of the mod, check out the ingame guide book. It can be obtained by slaying a pig while holding a regular book. The guide book contains the latest information on all the features of the mod. The documentation below will no longer be maintained.
Basic Crafting Recipes:
Even more recipes:
Differnet kinds of tamed cats. Recipes are shapeless.
Use colored wool to craft colored sheep or color them after crafting. Just put them in the crafting grid to shear them.
Wolves work with every color of wool or sheep. Also you can tame them and make them angry.
Use 4 slimes of one size to make a bigger one. The biggest, the giant slime, does not spawn naturally. Its size is defined in the config. Default is 10. Same with Magma Cube.
Armor + zombie = armored zombie. Works with every kind of normal armor and every normal tool (not modded items).
All different kinds of Villagers are possible. Even the infected villager and the witch.
All kinds of horses. 39 in total.
Different kinds of Jockeys. All are shapeless.
Some recipes that fit nowhere else. Enderman can hold all blocks up to blockID 128.
The guide book is an item that explains all features of this mod ingame. It is obtained by slaying a pig while holding a regular book. It should be the primary source for instructions about the mod, as it probably contains more up to date information than this thread.
The Animal Bow is a new bow. It can be used to place animals far away from you.
If you hit an existing animal it will be turned into the one you've shot.
To use it you need an arrow and an animal. In Creative Mode you don't need arrows but always an animal.
The empty spawner is a craftable spawner.
When placed it won't spawn anything. You can harvest it with a iron or diamond pickaxe.
To turn it into an working spawner just right click it with an animal. From this point it's a normal spawner. You can't harvest it anymore (you can destroy it).
You can still change the animal, that it spawns by right clicking it with another animal. This also work with generated spawners.
This works with every animal, including colored sheep, armored zombies and MoCreatures. And yes, it works with ender dragons, but they will destory the spawner.
The minimizer is used to turn animals into babys/adults. Left click any animal to turn it into a baby (you won't punch it). Right click it to turn it into an adult. If there are no baby version of an animal, nothing will happen.
This works for MoCreatures too.
The ender crystal works like every other block. Just right click to place it. But it also has the ability to remove existing ender crystal without explosion. To do this, simply left click and existing ender crystal while holding a crafted ender crystal.
The animal armored is crafted like a chestplate of cobblestone.
Using the animal armorer, you can apply armor and potions to mobs before placing them. This way you can apply armor to many animals that don't support armor by default. For example you can add a helmet and boots to a sheep or a chestplate to a creeper. Combinations that are not possible (e.g. pants on a silverfish) will be marked with a red cross in the slot. Zombies, skeletons, zombie pigmen and wither skeletons support all four kinds of armor and a tool. You can even give them blocks. Also, you can add up to five potions (regular or splash) to any animal.
This works with any piece of armor, even modded ones.
Here a picture of this feature in action:
Animal Display Case:
The animal display case can be used to display any animal as a model in the world. In its settings screen, you can define its size (10% to 1250% of this its normal size) and its position in the world, relative the the display block. You can even set it to rotate left or right. You can stop the roatation at any point by clicking the button in the settings screen or powering the block with redstone.
You can put normal craftable animals, baby animal, armored animals or animal souls in there.
By putting an animal, that has a baby version, together with a block of dirt in a crafting grid, you get two baby animals. Putting them both in a crafting grid gives you the adult version back. A baby animal has a red star it its corner, the icon will be the same.
Again, this works with MoCreatures too.
The animal soul can capture animals in their current form and release them again. It copies all the movement and properties of an animal (health, position of legs, angle of head, fire, ...). This is useful for putting the animal in a animal display case. When caputing an animal that is ridden by something, the soul will capture all riding animals as well.
Hovering over it in the inventory, will show some information about the captured animal.
Wear animals as helmet:
You can equipp any animal in you helmet armor slot. The animal will sit on top of your head then. Animals don't provide any damage reduction, they are just visual.
You can wear normal crafted animals, baby animals or animal souls on your head.
By shift-right-clicking on a zombie, zombie pigmen, zombie villager, skeleton or wither skeleton, you can give them a helmet too.
Spawners in minecarts:
You can craft spawners in minecarts. You can change them like normal spawners.
Things riding things riding things:
When you right click an existing animal with a crafted animal, you will make the crafted animal ride the existing one. This works multiple times, so you can create huge towers of animals.
You can place animals in boats or minecarts too.
By default, the mod will check for a newer version at every start and notify you, if there is one. The guide book contains information about the current and latest version. Only newer version for the current Minecraft version will be shown. This feature can be disabled in the config.
Animals drop themselves:
When an animal dies (killed by player or not), it will have a 5% chanche to drop itself in addition to its normal drops. The chance can be changed in the config file.
Remove spawn eggs:
Now that you have craftable animals, you won't need spawn eggs anymore. Using the config you can tell the mod to remove the spawn eggs.
When removing the eggs, the mod will add a dummy item for compatiblity when playing SMP.
The mod is available in English, Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) and Portuguese (Brazil). If you want to translate the mod in your language, please send me a message.

Here a few feature which set this mod apart from simple spawn eggs:
- there are more than 200 craftable animals including MoCreatures
- animal bow
- create spawners, change spawners, spawners in minecarts
- ender crystal
- armored animals
- animal display case

* versions marked with a star do not contain MoCreature support, because MoCreatures wasn't updated by the time I created the version.
Install Minecraft Forge.
Place the file "[1.x.x]Craftable Animals v2.x.x.x.jar" in your mods folder.
The installation is the same for client and server.
If you use MoCreatures go to Options -> Global Mod Settings -> MoCreatures -> Vanilla Mobs -> Despawn Vanilla Mods and set it to No.
How to report problems:
In case the game crashes after installing the mod, please include a log when reporting the problem. The log can be found at ".minecraft/logs/fml-client-latest.log". Place your log in a spoiler tag to keep the post short and readable.
Also say when the crash occured (e.g. at startup, when loading a world, after crafing a pig, ...).
From now on, I will ignore all crash reports that don't contain a log.
- a goat I met on a football field
If you want to include this mod in a modpack you make, you are allowed to do so under the following conditions:
- you provide credit in form of my name and a link to this topic
- you don't make money using the pack
- you can read (i.e. you can find this section on your own; I don't read PMs called "modpack", if you have a question and send me a PM, make it clear in the title that your read this section)
After you have placed them they shouldn´t despawn, so that this mod have a use and you can make your own pig pet, called Jimmy.
Otherwise nice, but the crafting recipes are expensive, so it need a use!
