mob mod for singleplayer

by axlrose08 » Post

I would like any suggestions for a mob-mod that works with relative ease. I have tried all of the popular ones and have had no success in seeing any mobs around my world. I may or may not have installed them correctly.
So if you could suggest a good mod and how I can install/check to see if the mobs are actually spawning, that would be great.
I eventually hope to have a little zombie apocalypse world going. As I feel minetest is an adequate tool to emulate such a world.
Thanks in advance.

Edit: I have the latest version 0.4.4 (I believe) and running on windows OS

Here is my peaceful_npc mod. It works well and if you want to spawn them using a command or a summoner you have to grant yourself the "peacefulnpc" priv.
/grant singleplayer peacefulnpc

I think he means hostile NPCs.
Though your peaceful_npc mod could easily be modified to make them hostile.

Thanks I'll give this a try, although I do want a hostile mob also, this will at the least get me familiar with how it all works.

I have the sapier animals mod but it doesnt seem to do anything, I cant give myself a spawn egg item, I wait to see if they randomly spawn and still nothing. It's weird...

I will assume I am doing something wrong, as this mod has yielded no results either. I have unzipped it, placed it in mod/minetest. I have yet to find a way to make these work, and instructions I have found on google haven't been very specific :(
Forgive my noobines.
I couldn't even use the /grant singleplayer peacefulnpc as it said it was an invalid priv

It took some time for me to find some animals.
Vombies appear at night in areas with low light level.
Dungeon Masters appear in, well, dungeons ;)

Just give it some time. Explore the world. You'll eventually find some animals.

Isn't the fact that I can't use that guy's "/grant singleplayer peacefulnpc" priv an indication that the mods are not working?

First NPCs spawn naturally. Second thatnpriv is so people can't crash servers. Try spawning around 50 in one spot all at once using a command. That is just an overload of info. Also I don't want others to grief places by putting tons of them in someone's house

Oh sorry, didn't read the edited post.
It seems either you installed the mod in the wrong location, or something is messed up in jojoa's mod.
Where did you install the mod?

Code: Select all

npcs:register_spawn("peaceful_npc:npc", {"default:dirt_with_grass", "default:sand", "default:desert_sand", "default:desert_stone", "default:stone"}, 16, -1, 500, 2, 31000)
That sets spawning info

Code: Select all

function npcs:register_spawn(name, nodes, max_light, min_light, chance, mobs_per_100_block_radius, max_height)
And that is what the numbers mean

I unzipped it into this directory: minetest-0.4.4-win32\mod\minetest
Most tutorials I have found use an older version of minetest so it's a mystery to me as to why it doesn't work by simply extracting it into the location

I'd just like to know how to spawn one mob right in front of me so I can be sure the mods are working, I have both the sapien-animals mod and his peaceful npc mod.
