Putting this out there, but fixing things atm - watch out for the bugs!

This mod allows you to change your model by pressing the 'U' key in-game and selecting a mob. You will also gain some benefits/disadvantages of the chosen mob (but mostly advantages Posted Image).

The last things I added:
Spoiler:

In single player, changing shape will also cause you to change dimensions and perspective so, for example, if you chose to be a wolf, you would be able to walk through one high holes, but as an enderman would need a three block high hole. This will not happen in multiplayer, but you will still be able to activate some abilities and will still look like the mob if you go into third person view.

The current mobs:

Wolf
Ocelot
Enderman
Creeper
Spider
Fish
Snowman
Chicken
Giant

Blaze
Ghast
Villager (if in villager.txt and in multiplayer)
Golem
Cavespider
Fly

The option for giant will not appear in multiplayer for obvious reasons.

ModLoader is not required because it wouldn't be able to help with compatibility other than saving me from editing perhaps two more files. These are not the files that tend to cause issues with other mods.

You can edit the skins without fear of changing those of every other mob in the game. The .png images can be found in mob/shapeShift/ in minecraft.jar.

In the multiplayer menu, there is a button that allows you to choose whether you want the other players to be decked out in the skins that they uploaded to minecraft.net (which looks odd on most of the models), or with skins that are stored in the client (ones that fit the models they are viewed as).

Changing your shape in the GUI also changes everyone else, but you may overwrite this for individual people (including yourself) by creating a text file in the same directory as your bin folder named the name of a specific mob. Any person's name written in these files will make him rendered as the mob that the text file is named after. You generate these anyway, and press Y to edit them in-game. The files  are:

s_wolf.txt
s_ocelot.txt
s_chicken.txt
s_creeper.txt
s_enderman.txt
s_spider.txt
s_villager.txt
s_golem.txt

Pressing 'Y' in-game will bring up another GUI. To use it, enter an IGN (case sensitive) into the text field, and select with the buttons how you'd like them to look, then press 'set'. It will do the text file stuff for you.

As a mob, you will gain an ability or produce and effect by pressing 'G', in addition to passive effects:

Spoiler:

As other other players will render you with their own clients, you will appear to them as they choose (probably human though there are other model altering mods).

FAQ

Spoiler:

The nature of this mod means that isn't compatible with a lot of others; sorry for this, but I'm by no means forcing you to install it. I've had a couple of people blaming me for breaking their minecrafts - make a backup of your .jar, sillies.

Downloads

Spoiler tags removed for the convenience of those who don't understand them.

Discern which version you'd like to download and click the link (there are links to go to either dropbox or mediafire). If the link is a greedy adf.ly link, then you'll probably have to wait a couple of seconds before you can press the big "Skip" button in the top right corner - this will take you to where you had originally intended to go (dropbox/mediafire).
Due to me not being very good at what I do, and the nature of the mod, it is often incompatible with other mods. However, it has never failed to work for me when I've tested it, installing it the default way - simply dragging the .class files (and folders in the same folder as the .class files) into minecraft.jar. Then proceed to delete META-INF if you haven't already done so. I have to assume that the people who state that the mod doesn't work are either suffering from incompatibilities with other mods, or not installing it properly. Hope this clears some things up.

Why? There's no purpose for it.
Winrar and 7zip can open .rar files easily with no effort. (Also everyone should have this, no exceptions. It's common practice especially when working with zip format files)
It's exactly the same as using the .zip format.
Only reason you would use .zip format is if you're assuming it's for Modloader. *facepalm*

Don't reupload your mod because someone is derping.

I tested it with a clean bin folder, so maybe there are some other mods that are interfering with it?

I'm not sure - there are a lot of errors with mine at the moment :/ but love the ghast idea, and also the sheep eating grass to heal. I suppose I could make it so you have a tonne of health if you're the iron golem. Thanks Posted Image

Shameless self-bump : Added snowmen and fish. Please post ideas for mobs (new or existing), just to keep this thread alive as much as anything else. :3

you are supposed to have a damage buff of 3 when either a wolf, spider or ocelot (6 for endermen), but that doubles if you are using an item due to a mistake that I've now fixed. Either install http://dl.dropbox.co...663976/lr.class to overwrite the class that the mistake is in, or reinstall with the new download. sorry

How would that work in-game, though? Lean over the water and perhaps click when a light flashes, indicating the 'dip' of a fishing rod?
Otherwise make it so that the fish mob that you can turn into spawns in the wild when you're a cat. Killing it would give you fish...
