How do I spawn Chicken Jockeys?

  • #21
    Quote from Nepenthesis

    Why would a fast zombie need to ride a slow, passive chicken?

    Because it can?

    Anyway, they're not slow or passive. They move as quickly as regular baby zombies (ie damn quick), but they take no fall damage - and they will directly attack players from about 50 blocks away.

    As far as I know, the only way to trap them is to filter them with a water trap (zombies fall to death or into lava, chicken don't die and get swept away by water as they float.


    At the bottom of the drop, you could have a 1-high gap on one side. They'll go in and suffocate.

    You could either have it at the front so they head towards you where you're killing the others, or - if that is awkward - you could attract them in a different direction by putting a villager on the other side. They'll head straight towards a villager rather than the player, unless you hit them.

    And it's reasonably easy to get a villager in a zombie spawner area, by curing 1 zomb villager.

    If you're not keen on the auto-suffocate idea, you could put a piece of cactus in there, but watch it because cactus (or the lava you mentioned) will destroy at least some drops. So just letting it suffocate itself is probably easier.

    I don't think it'll cause much of an issue though, because they only seem to spawn about 1 time in 1000.

    HTH

    EDIT: PS, another option that I've used in the past, if you are just killing everything for drops and not looking for XP, is put an iron golem in the bottom to kill any that survive the drop.

    Possibly an upside-down skeleton riding a skeleton so it looks like a deformed rabbit :-s

    Well, you can stack mobs on top of each other, if that counts...


    They do spawn naturally, but very rare, like spider jockeys
    dinnerbone added them in 1.7.3

    dinnerbone added them in 1.7.3

    It was in Snapshot 13w49a, but yes, he's just put up a pre-release of 1.7.3 (in the past few minutes).

    I checked, and the new mobs still spawn rarely from zombie spawn eggs (and presumably spawners and natural spawning, but I didn't actually re-check that yet).

    Chicken-jockey don't...
    what the heck?

    I don't know, maybe they don't spawn from spawn eggs

    I like to play games, I like to laugh maniacally when playing games.

    They do. About 1/1000 zombie spawn eggs produces a chicken jockey. (Rough guess).

    Just use this command in chat (with cheats enabled):

    /summon Zombie ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:Chicken}, IsBaby:1}

    Behaves like a naturally spawned Chicken Jockey.

    They are real; I just tested it:



    (I made the tower so zombies would fall to their death, avoiding having too many at once)

    Wait WHAT?! They do! I'm going insane!

    Chickens are evil. Oh believe me, they are evil. The next thing you know they will be hiding inside your chest, meddling with your sword, until they hear you coming back, and then they prepare themselves for vengeance of their fallen brothers...
