Desert Mobs Add-on (Dmobs)

Do you feel like something is lacking in the desert biome? Do you want more challenging and interesting mobs? Well, this add-on is for you then and I hope you enjoy!

This add-on adds 3 new mobs these mobs can only spawn in the desert biome.

These mobs are...

Cactis: This mob hides in the desert perfectly camouflage in the sand. It will reveal itself and attack you once you get too close.

Cactis (Hiding):


Lurker: The lurker a snake type mob that hunts in the desert. Once it sees you it will dive into the sand and charge and jumps on you.

The last and final mob is the

Scorpion: The scorpion is a dangerous mob in the desert with its big claws and a stinger. Once you get close it will attack you by stinging you, it also has a range attack that fires from its stinger that can poison you.

Dessert Structures:

Stony Arc:

An arc made of stone, this structure can be found in the dessert. You can find scorpion eggs under this structures but be careful a scorpion can spawn here.

Sandy Small Hill:

This structure blends well in its surroundings and can be hard to see. Inside of this structure are Lurker eggs and Lurker can spawn inside of these structures.

When breaking the eggs they have a chance to spawn a scorpion or a Lurker depending on the egg, you can also get a toxic goo item when breaking the eggs.

This is my first time making custom mobs with complex animation and I'll be making more in the future. Hope you enjoy this add-on! :D

This mod is pretty goddamn good, btw can you add something like a sand elemental, pharoah or sphinx boss? It will be interesting to see interesting mobs like that. I also have another suggestion. A warden like mob, but for the dessert! Basically some sort of mongolian deathworm (look it up) that detects player via vibration. Another cool idea would be a sandstone monster/guardian guarding a chest in a sandy ruin. Similarly to the warden, but it can only see like how guardians can't sense players if it cant see them. It will chase the player the moment it sees them (alongside every other mob) until it can't see the player anymore. Suggestions aside, Pretty cool and based mod

Barely works. They die in one hit. They drop any loot. Well add that, sounds, exp, and more strength and I might redownload.

Great addon but i think that the new mobs spawn too frequently then it become too hard to navigate in the desert

Please change the Cactis so the bottom block is also cactus, this will make it harder to spot, also, please eliminate its shadow, you can look at how with the No Shadows mod.
