Suggestion: Make bats not spawn on Peaceful

The reasoning behind my request is that a map that I play on a lot is on Creative mode / Peaceful. Amongst the many buildings I have, there are a lot of dark areas -- some of which are intentionally dark, like basements and underground subways.

The problems I have with bats:

1. There are some areas where dozens of bats spawn due to darkness, like in one of my modern skyscrapers, which takes away from the "modern" feel of it. Placing torches/lamps around to reduce their spawning would also take away from my original vision of the buildings.

and 2. All I hear for hours when I'm building are the bat squeaks, which becomes annoying.

So my suggestion is to make bats one of the mobs which do not spawn on Peaceful. This is not to say that I don't like bats (in fact I think they fit into Survival mode very well), but when I just want to build in Creative and/or Peaceful they become a nuisance.

Does anyone have any thoughts / criticisms about this?

I don't see why not. They may be passive, but they also don't drop anything. No need to keep them there.
Looks like my free time is going to be divided equally between Minecraft suggestions and Starbound suggestions from now on.

Or maybe, bats do spawn when you're on Peaceful but not on Creative Mode. But if you're on Creative Mode and DO want bats to spawn you can change the difficulty, maybe Normal+?

Still, I do think bats should not spawn on Peaceful.
NOTHING HERE, WHY DO YOU BOTHER?

How about a switch instead, because I do not see the use of not letting useless, peaceful animals spawn on peaceful.

How about a setting beside difficulty, for all difficulties... Enable bats: yes/no

I didn't see your reply until I posted, facepalm.

How about setting the bat's spawning to spawn on stone-related blocks and monster eggs?

Because that would go against what OP is pointing out, he has areas purposely dark... which could be made out of stone.

This is a good idea too, to have a toggle available. Maybe only in Creative?

No support. There's no reason to bats being removed. They're passive, and peaceful means passive and neutral mobs only. If I were you, I wouldn't complain about the bats. Some bats do accidentally go into modern building in real life.

Love bats. They liven up the world, and I don't want them confined to easy+. And I don't want a million switches and toggles either, just....looks bad. So no.

Normally, you do not see bats in modern buildings. I do not hate bats, in fact, I think they are great mobs, but OP makes a good point. Atmosphere is everything. You do not have bats in sky scrapers, just like a castle made out of iron would be strange.
