If you ever thought that Minecraft was lacking biological diversity, then the community has designed all sorts of different mob mods to make it more interesting. AtmosMobs is one of the best mob mods in the Minecraft community today. It adds 33 new creatures into the Minecraft world, and each creature comes complete with new animations, sounds, and other cool features.
Adding new mob textures into the game is relatively easy. However, giving each individual mob a unique identity and attitude is a lot harder. The creator of AtmosMobs, Daveyx0, has worked hard to make each mob unique. Some mobs are tameable and allow players to ride on them, while others will attack players if they get to close. When left to themselves, mobs do what you would expect creatures like that to do. Vultures fly high into the sky, for example, while seals lounge around on the seashore or swim in the sea.
There are so many different mobs in AtmosMobs that it would be difficult to list them all here. Some of the land mobs include chameleons, lizards, squirrels, and frogs, for example. In the sea, players will find all different types of fish, as well as seals and whales. There are also plenty of different types of birds roaming through the air.
Players will have to discover each animal’s unique characteristics on their own. In fact, that’s what makes AtmosMobs so fun. Here are some quick hints at what players can expect from each new mob:
Blowfish: Blowfish swim around the sea in their normal form. Then, when players get close, they blow up into a larger form and instantly stop moving. If players bump into the blowfish, they will take damage. Blowfish can be tamed, although they don’t really do much when tamed.
Seagull: The seagull drops feathers and randomly flies around the map. Seagulls also have custom wing flapping animations and even make the classic seagull sounds. Players can tame a seagull by feeding it raw fish, and after being tamed, players can fly around with it on their shoulders or put it into a bird cage.
Chameleon: Chameleons will change color depending on which block they’re currently standing. They also lay chameleon eggs and will follow players around when holding a spider eye. Chameleons are fairly harmless and generally only attack insects.
Many of these mobs even have custom sounds, which makes discovering new mobs that much more exciting. All mobs feature some sort of custom animation. Birds flap their wings to fly, for example, and whales move their fins to swim around. A lot of work has gone into making this mod as interesting as possible.
To make AtmosMobs mod even better, it’s compatible with other popular mods like ExtraBiomesXL and virtually every other creature mod. So, in addition to adding new textures and environments into your game with mods like ExtraBiomesXL, you can add 50 or even 100 new creatures to your game with some of the other mob mods.
This mod is called ‘Atmos’ Mobs because it seeks to add atmosphere into the game. If you’ve ever wanted to add a plethora of new creatures into Minecraft, or capture a rideable seal and use it to run around the world, then AtmosMobs makes those things a possibility.
