Vladu 11’s Custom NPC Addon

This is addon lets you add NPC (non-player characters) to your worlds. Maybe you want to add mobs to your worlds but don’t want them to ever get hurt or move around. It could be useful if you are creating a storyline for a map and need NPCs for it.

Creator: Vladu11, Twitter Account
Updated: 29 December, 2016 (read changelog)

How does it work in-game?

The NPC (non-player characters) replaces the villagers. They can be spawned by using the villager spawn and and are useful if you are creating an adventure map (or basically anywhere else) and you want to add an invincible mob which can act as part of a story.

The only customization which you can add to it in-game is its name tag. For that you will need a name tag item and an anvil block.

It’s immune to fire, lava, TNT, attack damage, void and commands. Once an NPC has been spawned there is no way to remove it. At the same time this can be useful it also means that you have to be careful on deciding where to place them.

Other

  • Remove a villager with a nether star
  • 5 different NPCs

How to customize the skin for the NPC?

It is possible to customize the skin of the NPC but it’s only possible if you’ve got a computer or an Android device. It’s a little bit more tricky for iOS users as they will need access to the file system for their device and that is only possible by using a computer and a program such as iFunbox.

  1. Find the following folder: /games/com.mojang/resource_packs/Custom (or something a folder of similar name)/textures/entity/villager
  2. Replace the farmer.png skin with a skin of your choice. You can go to our skins section to find and download a new one.
  3. Make sure that the name of the skin is farmer.png and nothing else
  4. Restart Minecraft PE

Changelog

  • Remove with nether star
  • 5 NPCs
  • Name tags for naming
  • Invincible

          I Don’t know what happened

        • TheMcGamer089 says:

          You know that there are 64×32 skins and 64×64 skins. You probably put 64×32 skins instead of 64×64 skins (or the other way around)

          • Anonymous says:

            Yeah but I’m putting in 64×64 skins, they look exactly the same but retextured, and it comes out all strange and stretched out, the face is on the leg. Also TheMcGamer089, how is it being helpful when your telling us that either we put the skin in the other way around, with no helpful data at all.

      • Estelliouse says:

        Mine keeps on crashing whenever I try to place a npc down 😭 Plz help

        • Jessie says:

          It happens with my brother’s iPad too, Not for mine, Mine is just completely fine. I think it has something to do with how much storage your device has left, Maybe delete some apps you don’t need to use anymore or remove some photos in your photo album, Re-download the app, and try again, That’s what I did with my brother’s device.

  9. ArisZeo says:

    Its Working Thanks

  10. DinoDNA says:

  11. Anonymous says:

    Can we costumize him??

  12. Livlox says:

    Good addon you should make more

  13. iOS users says:

    iOS users download filemaster and then download the resource and then rename it
    (Name).mcpack into (name).zip (just change it to mcpack to zip rename it ) and then unzip it then go to the entities then retexture the npc and then delete the skin of villager and replace it with a new one and name it villager.png,smith.png etc. and then go back where the pack icon is and press where there is no files and select “select all” then it should be blue then press and hold one file and press “zip” then rename it Archive.zip into NPC.mcpack (does not matter what you name it) then press and hold and press “open with” and choose mcpe. That is how
    That took me long.

  17. LegendaryNacho24 says:

    Vladu11, i have an idea for an addon i think u should make. do a star wars addon with bb-8 as a cat, R2D2 as the dog(R2D2 can shoot projectiles), a landspeeder that replaces pigs( you can ride it and control it), clone troopers replace skeletons, villagers become jawas, zombies become boba fett, endermen become darth vader, husks become yoda, sheep become something and allow it to change textures, lightsabers, blasters, and i think you can think of more

  18. Ellla says:

  21. mumz says:

    There is a app named ‘Addon Creator’ for iOS. There you can make both packs easily. Sadly, it’s not for free, but it’s a good app. It even gives you access to the .json files.

  48. Sage Smith says:

    Well this is an excellent addon. What would be cool is if you could make a Star Wars addon. Something like Republic Commando. Ah, never mind. Nice addon though.

  49. Nerd craft says:

    You should make it to where you drop something near them and they will pick it up. It would add a more interesting way to make adventure maps.

  50. Tillece says:

    This is amazing!! Well done, but I have a couple tips:
    1: you could make baby versions for smaller name tags
    2: you could many get trendier skins for them
    3:many u could even make a map to showcase them?
    You’ve done an awesome job well done!!

    I would enjoy it if there were different ways to change the skin!!
    Other than that, great addon!!

  91. MeriPlays says:

    Wow, really cool addon!!! Works great, really simple. But, i did have issues with replacing the texture. I have E S file explorer, and I closely followed the instructions, renaming the skin I selected from a different folder and transferring it to the correct one, but when I restarted minecraft, the skin had not changed. (I have an android device, by the way,) Still a really cool addon, especially for maps. Great job!
