The Mimic Addon (Second Adjustment Update! + 1.17 Patch!)

Brave Adventurer, I  must warn you before you venture into a cavern. Hidden in the dark, disguised as a container of riches, it sits silently and unmoving. It waits for you to get closer until it is too late. It's jagged teeth sinks into your leg and disables you from escaping its hunger. The Mimic.

Now 1.17 Compatible!
 

Hello there! Have you ever played one of those RPG Dungeon games and come across a chest that you think has loot in it but once you come close it opens its mouth and attacks? Yeah. That's a mimic. 

Mimic

To spawn a Mimic simply look in the creative inventory or summon it using the command: /summon rpg:mimic
 

 

In survival they will naturally spawn in your world inside of dark caves.

A mimic LOOKS like a regular chest but of course it isn't. Incase you didn't know. The Mimic is the one at the very centre of those chests and doesn't merge with the others to create a large chest like a normal one would. 

Once you get close enough. It will attack you and follow you. It's bite causes slowness and deals 4 hearts! So be careful.

It has 30 health (15 hearts) and when killed, it might drop Emeralds, Iron Ingot, Gold and a few random items like Cobblestone and Gunpowder.

Art by me btw and NO that is not my MC skin. I call him..."Test guy" 

 

Large Mimic


 

More teeth, more ferocity. 


 

To spawn a Large Mimic simply look in the creative inventory or summon it using the command: /summon rpg:mimic _large

In survival they will naturally spawn in your world inside of dark caves.


 

As usual. It looks EXACTLY like a large chest but again. IT BITES.


 

They now attack villagers!  and the Large Mimic EATS THROUGH BLOCKS. (stone, andesite, diorite, granite)

When bitten, it causes blindness and deals 6 hearts. of damage! It has 46 heatlh(23 hearts) so it is VERY BEEFY. The reward for killing is almost the same as the smaller mimic BUT it has Diamonds!!


 

Ender Mimic


 


 

Resembles the Enderman when it attacks. Since you know. Ender Mimic.


 

To spawn a Ender Mimic simply look in the creative inventory or summon it using the command: /summon rpg:mimic_ender

In survival they will naturally spawn in your world in The End.


 

As per usual it LOOKS like a regular Ender Chest. It behaves like a regular Mimic and loves to bite villagers. Health is the same as the normal Mimic. This one drops Obsidian, Shulker Shells and of course Ender Pearls.

Also one commenter asked me to make ender mimic spawn in end cities. No idea how to do that yet but will try to figure it out soon.  Also also a user named Red Fan suggested I make it immune to explosions so....IT IS.

Almost forgot to mention. IT TELEPORTS.


 

Barrel Mimic


 

A mimic that slithers on land but swims in the water!

Do NOT go into water. It moves faster in water and when it bites you it causes poison!


 

To spawn a Barrel Mimic simply look in the creative inventory or summon it using the command: /summon rpg:mimic_barrel


 

It spawns in beaches and when killed it drops sand, sea grass and on rare occasions maybe even an emerald or a TREASURE MAP!. Has the same health as the regular mimic and same attack damage

This was the first update that was completely from the commenters. Suggested by: Navneeth2007, Stick Boy. Thank you guys!


 

Art by me btw and NO that is not my MC skin. I call him..."Test guy" 

 

Golem Mimic

This  mimic type is the most dangerous so far! It has the power to take away HALF your hearts! Also this Mimic cannot be detected by the Iron Golem making it invisible to the only entity that you can run to for protection. It doesn't attack villagers so it can easily blend into a village. It's only food? YOU

 


 

As you can see. There's almost zero difference between the two.


 

To spawn a Golem Mimic simply look in the creative inventory or summon it using the command: /summon rpg:mimic_golem

Take note that Golem Mimics don't spawn naturally. (This was intentional)


 

Undetectable. Powerful. Will swallow you whole. When killed it has the potential to drop Iron, Bones, some Diamonds and maybe a few Emeralds.

This is another update that was completely from the commenters. Suggested by: M.M.16 player. Thank you!

Mimic's Heart


 


 

Dropped by ALL mimics


 

Luggage Pet


 

This li'l guy helps you carry your extra items! Before they are tamed, they will run away from mimics. After they are tamed they will ATTACK them. So they're like a "Mimic Detector"


 

Craft the spawn item using a Mimic Heart + A chest. After they are spawned you need to TAME them with another heart.


 

Large Luggage Pet


 

Big boi with MORE THAN TWICE the storage BUT slower. Heavy boi.  Before they are tamed, they will run away from mimics. After they are tamed they will ATTACK them. So they're like a "Mimic Detector". I do apologize if this guys inventory is REALLY big compared to the regular Luggage Pet, I really can't fix that...yet?


 

Craft the spawn item using a Mimic Heart + A chest. After they are spawned you need to TAME them with another heart.


 

Barrel Luggage Pet


 

Amphibian lil boi. He can swim really fast and never drown. Though I highly recommend you put your pets in a boat.


 

Craft the spawn item using a Mimic Heart + A barrel. After they are spawned you need to TAME them with another heart.


 

Ender Luggage Pet


 

Immune to explosions but gets hurt by water. Take VERY GOOD care of this boi. Also he teleports from time to time.


 

Craft the spawn item using a Mimic Heart + An enderchest. After they are spawned you need to TAME them with another heart.


 

You can heal the pets with Iron Ingots!

Great Addon and Nice Art! I have a suggestion for you, furnace mimics and crafting Table Mimics. When you get close to the furnace mimic, instead of running at you to chomp on your character, it instead spits iut fire and the furnace turns on. And if you want, you could do the same if you want to add Smoker and Blast Furnace Mimics. Have a nice day.

Sorry for typo, Where it says “spits iut” I meant to put “spits out”.

Very great mod, however what would be the point of adding mimics if every chest we see in a cave is most likely one. There should be reason for us to approach chests generated within a cave, sort of like another mod I downloaded which had actual chests you can find in a cave but requires a key to unlock. This implementation will most likely boost the meta of the mod. Great effort on it so far

1. Discord link is invalid.

2. A large mimic that breaks stone, andesite, diorite, etc. Has broken one of my builds before. They also spawn on the surface quite often, so it's not *only* deep caves. A suggestion to try to keep them underground is to have them only spawn when in certain "air types", as the underground has a different air type than the surface.

3. Barrel mimics could be made a tinge rarer. I can't go near the ocean without three chasing me. Just a small suggestion.

4. I suggest lowering the chances of getting a mimic heart. It should be a rare drop, like a wither skull. Reason I say this is that the mimic pets are insanely good. They can be used for clearing grass, crops, etc.. And they do great damage and serve as storage. Heck, you don't even have to keep them on a leash to have them follow you.

5. Mimic barrels drop a lot of duplicate maps. I have at least six maps to a buried treasure near spawn from them.

6. If you plan on keeping mimic heart drop rates high, at least make them stackable. They take up a lot of storage-

Silly mimic ideas:
Trapped chest mimic: Much like a normal mimic, except they activate redstone they get near. Don't get them near TNT. Dunno how you'd make this. Also would probs be better as a creative-exclusive, since it can break redstone devices.

Btw, did you code any of these mimics to be farmable? Oh, and ender chest mimics should definitely drop eyes of ender and attack endermites, haha

Silly mimic ideas you probably can't code:

1. Door mimic: A mimic that spawns in naturally generated buildings. When opened, it will attempt to close in on you, and suffocate you. Perhaps it could drag you in like that one sea monster concept.

2. Carpet mimic: A mimic that also spawns in naturally generated buildings. Opens its foul mouth and attempts to eat you. Causes slowness when it hits you.

3. Trapdoor mimic: Same deal as door mimic, just less dmg.
