The Darkened Addon

The Darkened Addon turns most of the dimensions in Minecraft into more dangerous and hellish environments. The Overworld looks much darker than ever before and there is a complete set of new mobs roaming the earth. Most of the hostile mobs have had their behaviors, textures, sounds and models changed to simply create a more gloomy and apocalyptic like world.

What have been changed?

The main differences you will notice are the textures, sounds and some of the mob models. All of them are simply more dangerous. I’ve included a full list of changes further down on this page.

All of the changed mobs go under new names too but one thing that isn’t much different is the fact that most of them still want to kill you.

Behavior Changes & Other

  • Players have been boosted and resist fall damage (great for elytra enthusiasts!)
  • Husks and zombies are replaced by Phantoms and Desert Phantoms hunt the player, sometimes in groups. They can also enter houses but they have a weakness and that is that they are hurt by water. Sometimes they spawn backup minions. Desert Phantoms also teleport.
  • Iron golems are replaced by the Defender which is both much larger and stronger.
  • Bats are replaced by bolt-spitting Lightwings
  • The horse and jump boost is slightly increased
  • Skeletons prefer sword combat rather than bows, but Strays stay true to their bows and will fight at longer ranges.
  • Endermen dislike Phantoms who they will fight. It teleports much more frequently and attacks the player randomly. It also shoots fireballs.
  • Wither Skeletons have had their speed and combat boosted.
  • Ghasts are smaller and more agile. They attack more often and sometimes fight zombie pigmen.
  • TNT causes an extreme explosion.
  • Arrows are cause more damage but are still affected by the same gravity.
  • Snowballs do damage to more mobs than just blazes, players included.
  • Creeper move faster and do more damage when charged.
  • Witches have the ability to summon Phantoms into battle (instead of throwing potions)
  • The Wither Boss hurt if it gets wet and its speed has been greatly boosted. It may charge players.
  • Strays, Ghasts and Endermen shoot projectiles in bursts of 3.
  • Villagers have had their health boosted and they also look different. They also do more types of trades.
  • Both spiders have a new model with six legs. It’s suggested that it lost its other two legs when shapeshiping to a new form (as spiders do in real life when they get bigger apparently). Normal spiders shoot small fireballs and cave spiders have faster and more deadly attacks.
  • Horse jump and speed are boosted slightly
  • Zombie Pigmen are boosted as well. They have new textures and they are equipped with diamond swords.

Texture Changes

  • Gray panoramic background on start screen
  • Gray logo
  • Some of the text has been changed, also some mob names have been changed.
  • Mobs and spawn eggs have new textures and colors.
  • New textures for the sun, moon, water, rain and snow.
  • Most of the textures look darker.
  • Potion particles are invisible

    You sir, are the master of creating scary add-ons. This add-on was amazing and completely changed Minecraft. Me and my friend had so much fun and played this for hours. Literally! However, there are a few things that are quite annoying or bad.

    Sometimes, whenever my friend joins, it instantly crashes on my world. It’s getting really tiresome as it happens every time he joins now. Also, the Creeper and the Endermen aren’t really that creepy or scary so can you please change them a lot into a lot scarier mobs.

    Plus, I really enjoyed this add-on. The music really set the mood. Thanks so much for making it! 😀

    Love this 99% the other 1% is due to the fact that it always causes the game to crash. I love the whole concept and am having fun playing it until I get to close to the huge spiders or have my render distance to far. I would be really have if you could have make it better for iOS and android so that the game stop crashing!!

    Crashing like crazy on my galaxy s7. I’m absolutely in love with this mod, but it crashed every other time I did something, like attack a spider, or moved away from my spawn point. Please fix, I want to enjoy it so bad.

    XD your next addons should be the whitened. But still have some but not all the mobs from the darkened. Kinda like a peaceful world but there is still corruption in the world. You could leave the enderman like it is in the darkened

  13. Austin says:

    Hey I need your help. I want to make this new addon called “New World Order” But I cant seem to figure out how to add nausea or any effects to Raw food. I tried copy and pasting previous effects but I guess its just not that simple enough to do to add those effects to raw food.

    Also this addons look down my ally, as long as the mobs don’t attack passive mobs like cows chicken pigs sheep. I don’t like Any addons that does that.

    This is awesome
    They should change the nether mobs and make the villagers hostile

    Great Addon, it’s totally change the whole Minecraft Universe!! (well, not all of it). Anyway, creator of this addon, I found my android crash when trading with some villagers, and I don’t see any villager that sell Exploring map.. Can you make that trading as well? (the Cartographer)

  17. Ethan says:

    I have an idea! How about a Sonic exe add on, which turns the world into an apocalyptic environment with the sonic exe boss, which should replace the wither boss. (Not too much blood, though.)
