I don't mod Minecraft anymore ; thus, those mods are provided as is, and I won't give any support for it anymore. Have fun using them anyway !
Please note that Randomobs WILL WORK with any version of the game.



Balthichou's and PlumPlonk's mods :


Hi there. We're a french modders duet, and we enjoy little modifications which do not take over the whole game. We try to do nice-looking mods, which don't alter gameplay to much. PlumPlonk is the main artist / texture maker, and I do the coding. Of course, we've had help from other modders from time to time, so make sure you check the credits !

Mods we've made so far :

  • Randomobs 4.3 : If you're bored of clone animals, this mod is for you ! It brings visual variety to the game, by making mobs be able to spawn with different textures. Its source code recently got included in MCPatcher, meaning its texture library is easily customizable for texture pack makers and users. Be sure to check it out ! Working on EVERY SINGLE VERSION.
  • Haycraft 1.3 : Ever wanted to live in a thatched cottage ? Now, with Haystacks, it's possible ! This mod allows you to craft haystack blocks using wheat. You can now make perfect roof, or just nice-looking wheat storage. And there is wattle and daub for walls too ! NO LONGER SUPPORTED.

Well, now I shall let you visit our page. If you got any question or suggestion, just drop us a word right here ! We'll answer you the best we can.

Hi everyone, I'm here to share what was our very first mod.

Tired of seeing always the same cows, pigs, chickens and zombies ? You installed a texture pack, yet seeing always clones seems kinda strange... Then Randomobs is for you ! *insert advertisement jingle here*

The code of the mod is now part of MCPatcher, meaning patching your jar is enough if you're using a texture pack ! We'll keep this page as a general FAQ, as well as a download page for the skins fitting vanilla textures.

Please note : it doesn't mean you can just patch your jar and it will work. You still need textures, wether you get them from a supporting texture pack, or from here for vanilla fitting texture.


Randomobs 4.3
By Balthichou & PlumPlonk !

So, to be simple : this mod will force the game to pick a random texture for the mobs between several ones : pigs, chickens, skeletons, zombies, every mobs. Without this mod, there were only one cow race in your game ; now, there'll as many as you want !
And more of all, it's totally and easily customizable !

I'll keep it updated, so stay tuned ! And if you have any suggestion, go on, after all it's our first mod.

Requirements :
Minecraft corresponding version (from beta 1.7 and forth : see the "Download links").
MCPatcher : get it here !
If you're using a pre-3.0 version of Randomobs (pre-1.8.1 Minecraft), you need PReader by Roundaround. Since he decided not to distribute the old version anymore, and we still need the old version, here is a rehosted one : LINK.
The base of the mod is now part of MCPatcher. All we now ditribute are the skins for the mobs, so have fun ! We'll go on creating new skins so that your mobs are always more different !



Download links :
Every single version of Minecraft post 1.7.3, 4.3 version : LINK. Mirror : LINK.
beta 1.7.3 compatible, 2.6 version : LINK.


Installation :

If you have no texture pack, or if it doesn't support Randomobs :
1. Locate your minecraft bin. There are tons of tutorials about this around.
2. Patch your minecraft.jar using MCPatcher, and make sure you checked the Random Mobs little box.
3. Put the textures you downloaded into the corresponding mob's folder in your minecraft.jar.
4. Run Minecraft, and enjoy.
Note : On some computers, a "macosx" or "DS_Store" file appears : it's because I work on Mac OS X. They are trash files, you can delete them without any problems ; all you need are the textures.

If your texture pack supports Randomobs :
1. Patch your minecraft.jar using the latest MCPatcher, and make sure you checked the Randomobs box.
2. Launch Minceraft, choose your texture pack, and enjoy !


Supporting texture packs :
We got awesome texture packs to support Randomobs ! Which one will you pick ?

16x :

32x :
  • Pixelated's Dev Pack by Pixelated. Plain and beautiful. What else can you ask ?
  • Wolfcraft, by TheMadWolf ! Such good 32x texture packs are rare, so make sure you give it a try !
  • Glimmar's Steampunk, by Glimmar ! Bringing steam and copper into a victorian Minecraft. Wonderful old chap, I say.

64x :

128x :
  • Sphax PureBDCraft, by Sphax. Be sure you checked out this amazing texture pack, available in every resolution !
  • Sunshine Vector, by aussie_modder. Another vectorial pack in the line of descent of Sphax PureBDCraft. Give it a try, it really looks good !

If you didn't find what you want, have a look at the Randomobs Texture Trade ! You might find that special something !

If you want your texture pack to be featured here, just drop me a PM !

This is the second mod I've made, without PlumPlonk, except for the banner. It began as some ideas on Misa's tinychat, and finally became this. Enjoy !

Haycraft 1.3
By Balthichou !


Well, wheat is pretty much useless in Minecraft. Once you made bread and cake, your huge farms are nothing but a playground for chickens. You can still feed animals with it, but we're still far from the wide usefulness this cereal had in the history of peasants.
What does this mod do ? Well, with Haycraft you're now allowed to craft haystack blocks, which are compacted solid wheat. You can use them as a storage, building material for roofs and wall, or just decoration in your farms.

Well, not only reskins, for you'll see several different skins at the same time. The game pick up a random skin for each spawned cow.

Thanks for posting !

Kinda like the Wolf Customization Thing, but without the sizes.
Maybe you can add it so people can add more skins to it?

That's a good idea !

It's only my first mob for now, so I'm a bit lost. But I'll do the same for every other mobs... So yeah, I'll give a look to the wolf customization.

But I don't want player to be able to change the skin of the mobs manually ; i want it to be as random as possible, so that when a grey cow spawns, it will stay a grey cow.

But I may try to give it a random size too !

Next mob to be randomizad will be pigs, then sheeps, then chickens. I'll then try hostile mobs (omagad, headless zombies !)

It's about time this has been made. Will this apply to aggressive mobs as well?

Wow. This is actually a great idea in my opinion. You should add Property Reader to this so people can share their own textures, and make their own textures. =D

EDIT: Also, you should do this for ores, so they don't all look exactly the same.

Wow, thanks everyone !

Yeah, I'll make agressive mobs too, so that you'll have, for instance, armless zombies, or some with riped-off shirts.

Property Reader ? I may look into it, but for now I try to stay kinda simple. I'm doing passive mobs first, because they are easier to examine in-game !

So, if you guys have ideas for zombies, creepers and skeletons skins, I'm all ears.

EDIT : ores is a great idea ! I'll look further into it once I'll have done mobs.

Maybe biome-specific mobs? Dark or brown wolves in the forest, white ones in the 'arctic'? Yellow-brownish sand creepers? White spiders camping in the snow?

Edited the first post.

Added four new skins, made sure it was 1.4_01 compatible. I'm now starting the pigs and chicken.

Well, to say the truth, I just tested it and it worked. The 1.4_01 doesn't mess with the files I use. So it's 1.4_01 AND 1.4 compatible.
