This is very cool! You did a good job. I've really been wanting to make some non-hostile mobs to bring some life to the generated world. Like tiny crabs that spawn around beaches and shores. And Little owls that spawn in forests. That would be so cute.

Please do so! At least we can enjoy them in singleplayer. The mobs make the world far more intresting.

Rabbits come in brown, grey and white (good for snowy landscapes):

A turtle (hides inside its shell if you attack it!):

Although the mobf versions are not perfect yet, they are already more convincing in "behaviour" and movement than the simple mobs versions.

Thanks to AspireMint for the fine models and to sapier for mobf!



These are so great! Is there documentation on making these? I would love to add more animals onto this. I especially want a hermit crab. :)

Most of the work consists of creating a model with the program blender plus a texture for that model. Once you got that ready, adding a new mob with mobf is pretty easy. There is a nice wiki that explains mob creation in detail. You can of course also have a look at existing mobs and start from there.
A hermit crab would be very welcome at the shores of my world :-)

Is there a way to define where exactly a mob will spawn? For example, make hermit crabs spawn only on sand that's near water.

Yes, a possible way to do that is how I do it for my 'whiteshells' (sea-modpack)

Code: Select all
minetest.register_abm({
    nodenames = {"clams:sandalgae"},
    interval = 60,
    chance = 15,
    action = function(pos, node, active_object_count, active_object_count_wider)
        local y = {x = pos.x, y = pos.y + 1, z = pos.z }
        local yy = {x = pos.x, y = pos.y + 2, z = pos.z }
        if minetest.get_node(pos).name == "clams:sandalgaeused" and
            (minetest.get_node(y).name == "default:water_source" or
            minetest.get_node(y).name == "noairblocks:water_sourcex") then
            if minetest.get_node(pos).name == "clams:sandalgaeused" and
                (minetest.get_node(yy).name == "default:water_source" or
                minetest.get_node(yy).name == "noairblocks:water_sourcex") then
                pos.y=pos.y+1
                minetest.add_entity(pos, "clams:whiteshell") else
                return
            end
        end
        end,
})   


With if, then, and, or, else and your position (pos) you can 'program' conditions.


Probably there are also other (and better) methods used by more talented modders. Just take a look at the different mods that have entities in them.

Running minetest-0.4.9 and getting the following errors regarding
"Could not open file of texture: animal_big_red_mesh.png"

I am not sure what to do, when the game starts up, there don't appear to be any spawns, but I think it is because they are all invisible with the meshes not getting loaded?

I have the same messages. I don't know the details. I guess it has to do with the animals being loaded as 3d by default. I think I read in this topic, some/a lot of post earlier. To be short: It should just work.

Animals not spawning might be caused when you enabled the modpack in a older world. When you walk, fly fast in one direction they should appear. Creating a world test1 with only the animal modpack enabled is another approach to test if the modpack works.

P.s. press save after enabling (to be complete)

My main problem is not so much the character.png, but ALL of the mobs this mod installs gets that error.

Are you saying that we cannot open the texture files for any 3d mesh and that it still should work fine?

just ignore that error message, it only tells irrlicht is unable to find the texture on it's own, minetest adds it to the model manually
DON'T mention coding style!

With this mod, can you create your own animals/mobs and edit how often they spawn?

Working on a sub-game; mostly based texture packs, adventure and soon chemistry...

Yes you can, this is a modpack, all mods besides mobf and animal_materials contain definitions for a single mob (or two to three for things with children and genders) you can take those as a starting point.
Gr8 b8, m8. I rel8, str8 appreci8, and congratul8. I r8 this b8 an 8/8. Plz no h8, I'm str8 ir8. Cr8 more, can't w8. We should convers8, I won't ber8, my number is 8888888, ask for N8. No calls l8 or out of st8. If on a d8, ask K8 to loc8. Even with a full pl8, I always have time to communic8 so don't hesit8.

It can already be tamed if you catch it with a net. When you do so, you get a tamed wolf that will follow you araound if you place him somewhere. Which further instructions did you have in mind?

I think you should make the creepers look more like minecraft creepers
and I think you should make it so there are pigs and you ride them not an ostrich for gods sake.
