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.


  • 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



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


  1. Download Resource .McPack
  2. Download Behavior .McPack
  3. Activate the packs for a world in-game

I think this looks really cool. however I play on Xbox so I won't be able to change the skins. So could you make a version of this except with medieval knights and villagers?

It doesn't work if it is the latest minecraft, but what should I do? I'm glad if you make it for non-compliant case. By the way, I'm using google translation, so I'm sorry if I make a mistake

Why doesn't the overlay work when I change the skins?
Log in to Reply
Love the addon, but when I modified the NPCs to different skins, I realized that the overlay feature doesn't work. The new skin showed up fine, but the overlay wasn't displayed. Any ideas why?
