Are you ready for some proper mayhem? Then the Clay Soldiers Mod is for you!

This mod lets you use clay and soulsand for stuff other than building and growing nether warts, it lets you build clay soldiers! And that’s more fun than it sounds!

Clay Soldiers Mod
Setting up a fight is easy.

Now, you may want to use all your clay to create those precious bricks in order to build that wonderful mansion you’ve always wanted, but hold that thought! With this mod, the Clay Soldiers Mod, you can now use it for something much cooler! You can be the maniacal mastermind behind awesome and massive battles! This mod lets you create miniature armies out of the precious clay (and soulsand), but clay soldiers are not for fighting you, or your enemies, or anything else. They have one goal in mind, and one goal only: to kill every other clay soldier out there!

Clay Soldiers Mod
Let the battle commence!

A clay soldier is a handheld item, crafted by using a clay block (for the body), and soulsand (for the mind). Once you have a nice bunch of them in your hands, right-click to place them all at once, or sneak and right-click to place them one at a time, for more precise placement.

Clay Soldiers Mod

Once placed, these clay soldiers will quickly spread out and roam the surrounding areas. Soldiers are slow, and they can’t jump very well or very high, but they do have the strength required to climb single blocks. They are very brittle though, as they are made out of clay and lack a proper skeleton, so one punch from at player is enough to cripple their fragile bodies. This also means that they won’t be hostile to anything that can one-shot them, including you.

That is where the other clay soldiers come in. Pale gray soldiers made from normal clay can be put into teams that will fight each other through the use of dyes! All 16 dyes are available as a team color, and a clay soldier dyed one color will be loyal to any other clay soldier of that color, while ferociously fighting any clay soldier NOT of that color! You can even make melon and pumpkin flavored soldiers! When you place two clay soldiers of different colors in view of each other, they will not waste a second getting into a fight. Here’s how you create the various soldiers:

Don’t worry, that is not all this mod offers, there are plenty of ways to spice the fights up even more, as these little soldiers can ride a bunch of different mounts, and they can even be upgraded.

You can chose from a variety of equipment to arm your soldiers to the teeth and make sure they’re ready for a proper fight. To do so, simply drop the item you want them to equip near them, and they will pick them up. They can even distribute the equipment between themselves, and will do so if you give them a stack of something.
