Recently I have been delving into the depths of MCedit and creating some lovely chaos through filters. I do not want to fully discuss everything, but what I have made just needs one extra ingredient to its volatile mix to be truly effective. What I propose is the creation of a mod of which marks every item in vanilla as with the attractive properties of seeds to our fine feathered friends. Basically I want a mod that marks everything to a chicken as an item to follow. I have no idea of the difficulty of the project past putting in every ID. If there is for some reason already a mod or application similar, I would enjoy being notified posthaste.
That would work, don't know why I never thought of it. And yes, just making a chicken follow you like wolves or cats do. Possibly it could be through a copying of the general code, but you would omit the sitting.
While this is here even though this is more redstone oriented but falls within the same confines as what this post talks of, What are some good ways to get mobs to walk off platforms? Has it been tested a zombie with seeds in his hand works just the same?
