Based on the George Pal film by Paramount The War of the Worlds & the 1988-1990 series War of the Worlds.
This is NOT part of SWDteam's War of the Worlds mod.
Due to unforeseen errors & effectively most of the mod breaking, I will be re-starting from scratch & updating the mod for Minecraft 1.17.1.
Will add more posts & screenshots of the new builds shortly.
So far, the mod adds two new mobs; Martians & Martian War Ships.
(Technically there's a third mob, the probe, but it's really just meant as an extension of the War Ship.)
While the player is sleeping, there's at least a 50% chance a Meteorite will appear nearby & leave a crater on impact. Inside the crater is a flaming object covered in flame & magma blocks, this is a Martian Cylinder. You have a short amount of time to evacuate before the Cylinder's seal is opened & the War Ships are deployed. Each Cylinder carries 3 War Ships. War Ships will use explosive & flaming projectiles to attack players, villagers(+wandering traders) as well as any other vanilla humanoids in dwell naturally on the Overworld, including witches & illagers/pillagers & also golems & ravagers.
Martians spawn from War Ships when villagers are nearby & will feed on them. They will also feed on players & most other mammals.
Probes have little to no function as of yet, however, they will spawn from War Ships if a player is nearby. They are small & can fit through 1x1 block spaces. While they aren't currently a threat, killing them risks alerting Martians to your location! Probes will also despawn if they stray out of range of their Ships.
This mod is not officially published yet & a link for proper download will be added when ready.
