Mobs are living, moving game entities. The term "mob" is short for "mobile".
The Mo' Creatures mod adds over 50 new mobs to Minecraft. The mod focuses on interacting with and taming the creatures that the mod provides. Each mob in Mo' Creatures is either passive, neutral or hostile, and some have advanced AI, which of course depends on the player's presence.
Spawning[edit | edit source]
Mobs come to exist by spawning in many ways. Most will spawn naturally, dependent on the light level and biome, often times in groups with mobs of the same variety. Some mobs also have the ability to breed. Mobs will not naturally spawn on transparent blocks, in water (except for sharks, dolphins, small fish, medium fish, fishies, stingrays, jellyfish and manta rays), in lava, or on half blocks (slabs, stairs). The exception is monster spawners, from which they can spawn naturally on any block including air.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Mobs are affected by the environment in the same ways as the player: they are subject to physics, and can be hurt by the same things that harm the player (catching on fire, falling, drowning, attacked by weapons, etc.). Some mobs may be resistant or immune to certain hazards, such as hellrats, fire ogres, and nightmares which are immune to fire. Mobs can ride minecarts and other mobs, and can climb up ladders. When mobs are killed, they turn to dust and drop items which may be useful resources.
Each type of mob in Mo' Creatures has a certain AI (Artificial Intelligence) system with different behaviors and mechanics. Mobs will ordinarily wander around at random if there is a player nearby and usually avoid walking off blocks high enough to cause falling damage. Many mobs have an advanced pathfinding system that allows them to traverse complex mazes to get to a desired object or destination. Passive mobs will flee in random directions after being hurt, while hostile mobs will face and chase/attack the player as soon as they come close. Some passive mobs, such as turtles and deer, are shy and flee from entities when approached. Neutral mobs, such as snakes, will remain neutral until a player or mob provokes it (usually by attacking), at which point it will turn hostile toward and attack the entity that hit or get too close to it. Most mobs are aware of players within 12 or 16 blocks away.
Mobs can not see through most solid blocks, including semi-transparent blocks such as ice, glass, or glass panes. Mobs will not attempt to walk on rail tracks, unless pushed on by other mobs.
Some hostile mobs can ride several Mo' Creatures mobs in the same way players can. This includes silver skeletons, zombies, zombie pigmen or skeletons riding on horsemobs, wolves, manticores and scorpions. When mobs are killed, they drop various items which may be useful to the player for use in many crafting recipes. Some mobs can also only be found in certain biomes, such as mammoths, frost scorpions and polar bears, which can can only be found in "snow" biomes.
Other mobs have more advanced AI, and as a result, have more complex behavior. This includes scorpions stinging the player if the/she get too close, ogres destroying blocks within close range of the player, or golems using blocks as a projectile. Big golems can form their body from blocks in the surrounding environment, making them a formidable and challenging enemy. Mini golems will simply throw a block at you, however, and are not considered very dangerous.
Mobs can be transported, and can be placed from one area to another with the use of amulets.
Stationary objects[edit | edit source]
Although not technically mobs, litter boxes, kitty beds and eggs are subject to the same physics as other mobs in Mo' Creatures. Kitty beds and litter boxes however, cannot be burnt, poisoned, suffocate or drown etc., but can still be deleted from the world by falling into the void.
List of mobs[edit | edit source]
Passive mobs[edit | edit source]
|Ants||Smallest mobs in Mo' Creatures, and also the smallest out of all insects. Can pick up and carry food items.|
|Birds||There are 6 different types of birds; dove, crow, blue grosbeak, cardinal, canary and parrot, each one comes with a different sound. Right-clicking a tamed bird will place it on your head. Once a bird is placed on your head, you will not take fall damage. Instead you will "glide" to the ground slowly.|
|Bunnies||Bunnies only jump around aimlessly. Right-clicking on them will place them on your head. Pressing shift and use when they are on your head will make them jump off. Having a bunny on your head while riding a horse will considerably speed it up.|

There are eight different kinds of snakes, including a couple of shy snakes that will run away from the player, and venomous snakes like corals, cobras, and rattlesnakes. There are also aggressive pythons, which are the largest type of snake.
Different kinds of snakes spawn based on the biome. Rattlesnakes only spawn in deserts, while pythons spawn in swampland and jungles. Snakes mind their own business, if you get too close they will alert and hiss at you, giving you time to run away. If you don't, they will attack and poison you.

They are very hard to kill, and are resistant to the player's weapons. When it has taken enough damage, it will turn red and explode. Upon its death, it will drop the blocks it formed itself with and an ore cube (either a block of iron, gold, diamond or emerald). However, it will not drop the ore cube if killed too quickly.|

|Sharks||Sharks will attack the player as soon as you enter the water. They have a 10% chance to drop an egg and a 60% drop rate for shark teeth when killed, which is used to craft chain armor. A shark egg can be placed in water to hatch a tamed, friendly shark.|
|Silver skeletons||Hostile mobs covered in an armor similar to chain armor, and also have a shield on their back. They spawn at night or in dark places, and make the same sounds as normal skeletons. Similar to Minecraft skeletons, but instead of using a bow, silver skeletons wield two silver swords which they have a chance to drop upon death, as well as bones. They are very fast and can run at the same speed as your walking pace.|
Hostile mobs that spawn in dark places as a human initially. They may be at around your height and replicate the player's model, but don't be fooled. At night, these humans will take on a more aggressive and dangerous form.
During the day, the werewolf will be in its human form. When they are hit, they yell or say "You're hurting me, stop it!". At night, it transforms into a humanoid wolf. They can be easily harmed with a silver sword, but are practically invulnerable to any other weapon. Using any weapon besides a silver sword against a werewolf will only deal 1; the same damage as the player's fists.

Wyverns can be equipped with all three types of horse armor, but not crystal mount armor. There are thirteen different wyvern types: jungle, swamp, savanna, sand, mother, undead, light, dark, arctic, cave, mountain, sea and ghost.
Once tamed, a wyvern can be ridden and flown around, and also be saddled and chested. Using an essence of undead, light or darkness will only have an effect on a mother wyvern, turning it into any of the three tier 2 wyverns. Only tier 1 wyverns (jungle, swamp, savanna, sand, mother, arctic, cave, mountain and sea) can be found in the Wyvern Lair.
Tamed mother wyverns are larger than any other tier 1 wyvern, and are the same size as tier 2 wyverns (undead, light, and dark).
Ghost wyverns can only be obtained by killing tamed wyverns.
