Butterflies Add-On

This Add-On adds beautiful butterfly mobs to the Minecraft game. Butterflies are even able to spawn with 4 texture variants, and are the perfect aesthetic mob to brighten a Minecraft world.

4 butterfly variants, which spawn in grasslands, forests, jungles, and more. While only one mob, the variants includes-

  • monarch butterfly
  • swallowtail butterfly
  • blue morpho butterfly
  • cabbage butterfly

Sunflower texture change for better screenshots, based on the vanilla Minecraft sunflower texture.


(note: some screenshots taken with RTX on, in Minecraft Windows 10 Beta)

This addon looked great on this website, but sadly the butterflies are invisible when they’re spawned. I don’t see them anywhere else in the world either, other than three other invisible entities, Fly, Shark, and Hedgehog. Please update this and fix it! I suggest listening to ClockwerkKaiser’s comment, it sounds like worth a shot. Once it’s updated I’d love to try this mod again!

Added, I also use Minecraft version 1.16.210 on an iOS if that helps, thanks for reading my comments!

The addon is cool and all that, but it would be cute for some animals to have a playful trait and chase butterflies as a person who likes seeing cute traits from mobs ^^

So, this addon has a few issues which need to be addressed. All of which are easily fixable.

The variant texture array in the render controller is broken due to the texture "names" not matching what you've defined in the entity file. Example: in the render array you have the variant names set to "monarch", "cabbage", "morpho", and "swallowtail".

However, in the butterfly.json file, you have the array defined as "green", "blue", "red-yellow", "grey". Change either of those, and it'll fix the butterfly rendering. Also, the syntax in the render controller is a bit wrong as well. You're missing a closing bracket and a comma.

Additionally, you have three unfinished entities packaged in. Fly, Shark and Hedgehog. The entities are spawning in the world. But are invisible due to being unfinished. You should probably remove them form the files.

All of it was fairly easy to fix on my end (I REALLY wanted to play with these custom mobs. You designed them well!). Just go through your files one more time and double check you naming and such.

Um? What it won’t let me add the resources in my Minecraft pocket edition. It let me add behavior but not that. It said I need dependency ??

Hello, I really enjoy both your mods so far! Though, I've noticed that there's two mobs added that have no texture but do exist in the game (shark and hedgehog)

Please make an addon called ‘Adorable Pets’ that add in different animals you can tame.

You can get a lot of breed of dogs such as Bernese mountain, husky, Akita, chihuahua, collie (pls pls border collie) Australian Shepard and more you can tame them with bones and make them wander, sit, find or follow. Find means looks for cool stuff like how cats do when u sleep. They can find iron, bones, rotten flesh and mob drops.

Rabbits: You can get more types of rabbits, idk types of rabbits so you choose.
They can tame with carrots and can wander, stay, or follow.
They are more fluffy and bigger than normal rabbits.

Horses: You tame them as normal but there is more textures, and better looking saddles and bridles and all that. You can feed them hay or wheat and you can get ponies, smaller horses with shorter legs.

Ik you probably can’t finish all of this but here’s more ideas:

You can get different snakes, hog nose, anaconda, corn snake, ball python, Burmese python, with different morphs (colours) and some will be agressive, some will only hurt you if you hit them. Some are venomous and give the poison and nausea effect if they bite and some strike more than once. They can follow but only with food such as mouse (I’ll talk about those later)

Lizards: they eat lots of things and are omnivores, most can blend in with certain places and don’t like snakes. They are tamed with apples or crops and they can follow, wander or stay.
Idk if they eat mouse.

They are similar but rats aren’t as fast and they hurt you more if they bite.
Mice are fast like Minecraft rabbits and I’m not sure what u tame them with.

Just some idea. ?✨??

I loveee your work? Can you please make a rabbit pet addon that adds lots of different breeds that you can make your pet. They can all have different personalities like a Moody, cuddly, energetic, lazy to name a few.

I'm saying this because my pet Netherlands dwarf rabbit named thumper just died, and I've been terribly sad. Thanks for the help?
