Lycanites Mobs

Creatures

As of very recent updates, most creature configs have been migrated into new json files with additional settings. Some settings can still be found in the old cfgs but will eventually be moved over as well.

Currently, new creatures cannot be added and reloading creatures is partially limited. Also creatures that are already spawned wont have their stats changed, you will need to reload the chunk or world they're in.

Make sure you set "loadDefault" to false and that the json is valid otherwise the file will reset, also keep an eye on update notes for mob adjustments that you might want to consider for your customised mobs.

Editing Creatures

All creature configs can be found in the "config/lycanitesmobs/creatures" folder. You can use the command "/lm creatures reload" when in game to reload all creatures allowing you to test on the fly! There is also a "Creature" debug option in the lycanitesmobs-general.cfg file which will enable a lot of logging to the console if you need it, though errors should always show up in the log and shouldn't crash the game, instead the broken dungeon is ignored.

You can also use the command '/lm debug Overlay' to toggle a stat display on the left side of the screen when looking at mobs from this mod.

Each property uses a specific data type, please look up how JSON works if you don't know:

  • int

    Short for integer, this must be a whole number, can be negative if applicable.

  • double

    This can be a whole number or a decimal value such as 0.5, and can also be negative if applicable.

  • bool

    Short for boolean, this can be true or false (no quotation marks).

  • string

    This is text and must be in "quotation marks".

  • object

    This is a nested JSON object with properties of its own.

  • array[datatype]

    This means you can have multiple entries of the data type inside the [brackets].
