The Too Many Mobs Mod has a pretty self-explanatory title, in that this mods adds a lot more mobs and animals to the world of Minecraft. Not too many, but many.
These new mobs are both found in friendly, neutral, and hostile variants, as well as adding a few new items to the game, whale oil, deer meat, and eagle feathers.
Whale oil is a fuel source similar to coal, and can be used to cook 10 items in a furnace. It drops from the newly introduced whales, which are often found in groups in oceans, they have a more frequent spawn rate than octopuses.
Eagle feathers drops from the new eagles, often found in the air (so they can be a bit hard to take down), and 9 of these can be used to craft wings, that will make you glide if you right click when you are falling.
Deer meat can be cooked and eaten, found on, surprisingly, the new deer.
All the mobs and animals introduced in this mod are as follows:
- Friendly and tameable:
- Bearded dragon
- Crawling zombie
- Brown bear
- Polar bear
Be careful around bears, both variants have a strong attack and are very aggressive, towards the player and other mobs alike. And don’t let the crawling zombies sneak up on you, they can be a bit harder to spot.
As stated above, three of the new mobs can be tamed, and to do so you need some special items. For the bearded dragon, you need to tame it with spider eyes. Raw fish can be used to tame the platypus, and monkeys can be tamed with, you guessed it, bananas.
It is a great mob that makes the world a tad bit more living, littering more and new animals and mobs around the world, adding a few new crafting materials, and all of it without being immersion breaking or anything like that. It is also easy to install and use with Forge.
