Better Spawn Eggs



This mod adds new spawn eggs to the game. These spawn eggs can contain NBT data  which will be used to modify the spawn egg's properties/entity information. By default, the mod duplicates the vanilla spawn eggs and adds special mobs like Powered Creepers, Wither Skeletons, Villager Zombies, etc.



For map makers, you have a lot of choices. You can use the pre-defined spawn eggs by simply changing the item damage - no need to even add other NBT tags. However, if you want a custom mob, you can modify the NBT tags on ANY of the mod's spawn eggs, although modifying the "Custom" egg (damage=0) is recommended. For more information, please visit the GitHub page.

Sure, no problem. :)

Anyways, should I keep the name of the mod? Maybe rename it to be "Custom Spawn Eggs"? Not sure. Anyways, future plans:

Quote

  • Create an API of sorts for modders to use
  • Allow users to save their custom eggs
    • After saving an egg, it will be shown in the creative menu

Any other ideas?

You should try adding a way to use spawn eggs the same way as snowballs, that would be cool!

Also, When I will be done with  making the review and uploading on Youtube, I will post it here.

was googling to see if I could make custom mobs by editing the tags on a vanilla spawn eggs. Looks like I cant, but this should do the trick

EDIT: gonna be a while until my server is 1.6 though, I'll keep this on the backburner for now and just use spawners. Excited to try it!

Thanks guys!

Note that when you add custom data for the entity, the correct name for the tag compound is "spawnData", NOT "SpawnData" (like spawners). Sorry, NBT tags are case sensitive and I didn't realize the spawner one is capitalized. I could always change it though - what do you guys think?

Definitely change it, to avoid confusion. No reason not to use the already established conventions, anyway
