Lycanites Mobs


Lycanites Mobs offers a huge amount of customisation in the form of many config files. Please use the top menu to navigate to specific sections.

When editing JSON files, make sure you change "loadDefault" setting that JSON file to false, otherwise the json file will keep resetting to default! Invalid json will also cause a json file to reset (or be ignored if it's a custom added file).

There are a lot of config settings to document but I hope to eventually have everything available here. The basic cfg config files feature comments inside them explaining each section.

In recent updates I've overhauled many parts of the mod to use JSON based config files to define and control various features. Be sure to read up on how JSON layout works.

If you're looking for a specific setting here's how to find it:

  • Is it related to spawning?
    • Is it specific to a single mob? Check the mob's creature json file.
    • Is it related to multiple mobs? Check the mob's spawner json files.
    • Is it related to vanilla mobs? Some mob groups remove vanilla spawns from certain biomes such as skeletons not spawning in deserts, this can be turned off in each of the group spawn cfg files.
    • Mobs and Spawners have a many to many relationship. This means that mobs can list the spawners they use to spawn with but also spawners can list mobs that they should spawn, so if a mob has no spawners set, it could still be spawned if a spawner has a list of mobs set isntead.
    • Example: Cinders spawn from the fire spawner, to disable Cinders from spawning all together, edit their creature json file, to prevent them or any mob from spawning from fire, edit the fire spawner json file instead.
  • Is it related to a specific mob ability? Check the mob's group general cfg config file. This will later be moved to the mobs creature json file as the cfg files are phased out.
  • Is it related to a global feature? CHeck the main lycanitesmobs-general.cfg config.

Lycanites Mobs - General

The lycanitesmobs-general.cfg config holds most of the global config values ranging from special mob behaviour to other various features. Always look in this file first.

Lycanites Mobs - Spawning

The lycanitesmobs-spawning.cfg config holds global spawning settings, so if it's related to mob spawning and isn't specific to an indiviudal mob or mob group, it should be available in here.

Group - General

The x-general.cfg configs where x is the name of a mob group such as demonmobs holds group or mob specific feature settings. Eventually I hope to completely phase these out with the new json configs.

Group - Spawning

The x-spawning.cfg configs where x is the name of a mob group such as infernomobs holds group or mob specific spawning settings. Eventually I hope to completely phase these out with the new json configs.
