Latest Update!
  • WackyCreepers should work with forge now. I apologize for this issue occurring, but I had no idea that forge changed a method I used with mod loader to spawn my creepers. This should now be fixed. WackyCreepers will work with ModLoader or FML (Forge ModLoader)


Aqua's Wacky Creepers Mod

FAQ
Q: Does this mod have a config file?
A: Yes, it will be placed in your .minecraft folder as CreeperConfig.ini

Q: Is this mod compatible with *insert mod here*?
A: WackyCreepers should be compatible with every mod currently available that uses ModLoader or ForgeModloader. It is a base-clean mod (it doesn't modify any native Minecraft classes). If you find an incompatibility please contact me at [email protected]

What is it?
Wacky Creepers is a small mod that adds new mobs to the game. These mobs are wacky and interesting variations on the creeper (hence the name) that will hopefully supplement your minecraft experience. This mod requires modloader, which can be found here. WackyCreepers features a config where you can select which creepers you want to spawn and how common each creeper will be. Keep in mind that this will not be necessarily the most ground breaking of mods as it is my first, but do not hesitate to criticize or (if you care to) give suggestions. You can reach me at [email protected] which is usually checked daily.

What do the creepers do?

Images Imgur Album: Wacky Creepers Mod

Fireworks Creeper
A red and white banded creeper with its feet on fire. When it takes damage (you punch it in the face for example) it will launch itself into the air at high speeds and then explode in a big bunch of colorful sparks! Every explosion has two colors, randomly selected between white, blue, red, green, and yellow. The Fireworks creeper is the perfect creeper for any celebration that requires high explosives! Be careful though, as its explosion can cause fires if handled improperly! Fireworks creeper spawn on beaches, in the desert, or  on frozen ocean.

Poison Creeper
Dull purple and sickly green creepers that explode in a cloud of poisonous gas which (predictably) poisons the player. They drop rotten flesh and mushrooms.

Nature Creeper
They masquerade as a normal creeper, but are much less harmful. When they explode they spread tall grass and flowers onto any grass (much like bonemeal except a larger affect), and place biome specific fauna (saplings on grass and cacti in deserts) as well as heal the player.

Magic Creeper
Bright shiny purple creepers that explode in a puff of magical smoke. They float around in mid air ad when they reach the player cast a magic spell (causing a random potion effect). They spawn anywhere and wear incredibly stylish top hats. When they die they will drop a random potion.

Flash Creeper
Bright yellow creepers that explode in a flash of smoke and light, but don't die upon exploding. Also blind the player, reducing vision further. They are incredibly annoying, especially if coupled with other creatures (flash creepers cause no damage on their own).

Fish Creepers
Dull blue and green creepers that swim around in oceans, rivers, and lakes. When they explode, their explosion holes fill in with still water, spreading their watery domains further inland. Eventually they will take over all of the land mass, muahahaha! When killed they drop raw fish.

Party Creeper
Pink and wildly colorful creepers that love to throw parties wherever they roam (in any biome). They explode into a dazzling cloud of rainbow confetti and leave behind a delicious cake. Yummy!

Posted Image
Posted Image

Ninja Creeper
Hooded and mysterious creepers that disguise as other creepers. When they get close enough they throw off their disguise and strike from above with great speed! If you manage to hit them they will teleport away (leaving a log where they were) and attack you from their new location. They are a nasty foe that is hard to trap or escape from, so if you are able to defeat them you are rewarded with some great rewards! However, they are not impenetrable in that they take double damage when not disguised! They spawn in forests (both normal and icy) and in swamps.

although this idea is overused, it is pretty good for a newly spawned.
i wont download it, but it is a great mod it seems.
+1 and bookmark :)

edit: also, instead of leaving the cake behind, maybe make it leave the ingredients for the cake so there is a little work involved

Quite a decent mod if I do say so myself.
Though I would recommend Party creepers to be rare :D

Oooh. I love mob mods, and I like these cute little creepers. Is there any way to adjust their spawn numbers?

Thanks for the support! I'm glad to have it completed. I think i'll take on more interesting projects in the future, although this one was very fun as well.

I think that its better because this way you can only use it where it is and nowhere else. There is a certain inconvenience to not being able to take it with you like you could with the ingredients. Thank you for the suggestion through. Maybe I could have it drop the ingredients if you kill it? But that way you wouldn't have the wonderful confetti...

Right now you can only change whether or not you want them to spawn. Changing the spawn rates is not currently in the mod, but it wouldn't be too hard to implement I don't think.

Also, by the way, do these creepers just drop gunpowder?

I should update the main post with this information.
The fish creeper drops raw fish, the party, nature, and flash creepers drop nothing (or gunpowder? I didn't change the default i don't think), the magic creeper drops potions (randomly selected), and the poison creeper drops rotten flesh and mushrooms. Thanks for asking!

Thank you very much! I have party creepers set to be relatively rare, but I don't know how it would actually play in a long survival play-through.

I tried out this mod, but I'm coming up with a strange issue.

Here's the modloader error log, if it helps. I was using the Normal version.

It does not add any new items to the game. Any ideas for new creepers? I'm receptive to anything that isn't featured in other mods.

Thank you very much for saying its original! It could be more original, though, as I took heavy inspiration from the Elemental Creepers mod which does much the same as Wacky Creepers. However, I did be careful not to make mobs that were too similar to those in the Elemental Creepers.

Edit: I think that I have fixed the error seen above. Apparently I included the wrong files in the download link. Hope it won't happen in the future but hey I've got time to learn. Enjoy the newly working (I hope) download!

Okay, that's great! I'm going to try again, I'll post the results.


EDIT: It took me a while, but I found a magic creeper and a party creeper! I'll post some screenshots soon!

Thanks for the support! As for updates, I'll be sure to keep working on this mod, whenever I get a cool idea for a new creeper that needs creating that is.

A little bit, but I am running a whole lot of mob mods, so I recommend that everyone who has stuff like Mo Creatures and Elemental Creepers installed should use the increased spawns version.

Also the party creeper and magic creeper's explosions work perfectly. This magic creeper snuck up on me while I was taking pictures and blinded me. Cheeky fellow.
