This addon replaces creepers with gorillas. The young ones are absolutely adorable and it’s hard to resist getting one as a pet. Not only do they look cute but they will also protect you once they’ve grown up. Humans are very closely related to gorillas so I suppose it’s natural we’ve got a soft spot for them.
How to tame a gorilla?
You can tame a baby gorilla by feeding it some melons. Adult gorillas will naturally protect their babies if you get too close so it’s a little bit tricky to actually tame one (unless of course you don’t mind getting a huge gorilla to chase after you).
- iOS / Android: Hold a melon, long press on the gorilla and press tame
- Windows 10: Right-click on a baby gorilla while holding a melon to tame it
Once tamed it will by default follow you around. A baby gorilla is harmless and will never attack anything. You can accelerate the growth progress by feeding it more melons.
As soon as the gorilla has reached an older age and become a full sized gorilla then it will protect you against hostile mobs and fight anything that you attack.
You can tame multiple gorillas and have them follow you around. However, if you ever get tired of them you can also command them to stay (sit/stand).
