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

    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

  6. Jacky says:

    For changing the skins, is it possible to change it on my Android or laptop then add it onto my IOS Minecraft somehow?

  7. MasterG says:

    Why doesn’t the overlay work when I change the skins?

  8. MasterG says:

    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?

  9. ANYONONUZ says:

  13. Eshal says:

  14. MrManagement says:

    You should make it do custom trades that would be so fun!

  15. Jack says:

    You should make it so we can create custom trades!

  16. Mumana says:

    When i replaced my own skin with the farmer skin and rename it farmer.png but when i enter the game it is still the farmer skin

  20. SpookedCow says:

    This is amazing but you should add always show tag for the custom nametag we put on it!

  21. softandneat says:

    • Guest-9171567265 says:

      im not the creator of the addon but I have a solution for ios users
      go in the files app that comes with your ios, go in the file browser thing, go in Minecraft app folder, find the “com.mojang” folder, go in resource packs folder, find the folder for this addon, go in textures and then entities, find the villager texture, and then replace it with the texture you want

  31. Elise says:

    Can you make a video on how to change the mob’s skin using the rescoure.mcpack and behavior.mcpack? Because i can’t download the zip file i don’t know why.

  32. CuteNarwhal says:

    If i take away the addon and add it back into the game will the npcs be gone?

  33. Watergirl2017 yt says:

    Its ok but it is really hard to download and costomize them on android

  34. Sinobutt says:

    I have the mod, and I do like it, but my only complaint is you can’t change the skin without having to download something. There is a mod similar to this (no longer available for download, but search Costum NPC on MCPEDL search) that can change the appearance in-game. Can you attempt that in the future?

  35. Janie says:

    I REALLY wanted this, but it’s unfortunately not working. Can you please tell me why?

  36. GamerBoy says:

    This add on is so cool

  37. TemmiePlay_MC says:

    Can they speak like they can on computer versions of the mod? If not, can you make it so they can by clicking on them with a stick or sign and view their settings?

    • TemmiePlay_MC says:

      Also, can they trade and stuff? It’d be cool if they could! Also, can you make it so they can give ‘Quests’ like computers version of the mod/add-on!?

  38. Ooowl says:

  44. AngelSenpai says:

    Can you add more skins to the Addon?

  45. AngelSenpai says:

    Can you add more skins?

  46. Kimmy says:

    I love it, you should add something, where you can make it talk! Like in Minecraft roleplays, where you click on tbe villager and it says something
    Bobby: I love your shirt
    And you can add options. To click on to countiue the story line. Ya know what i mean?

  47. MeriPlays says:

    Wow, really cool addon!!! Works great, really simple. But, i did have issues with replacing the texture. I have E S file explorer, and I closely followed the instructions, renaming the skin I selected from a different folder and transferring it to the correct one, but when I restarted minecraft, the skin had not changed. (I have an android device, by the way,) Still a really cool addon, especially for maps. Great job!

  48. a_human_ says:

    I would enjoy it if there were different ways to change the skin!!
    Other than that, great addon!!

  53. Legoleader139 says:

    Just a little thing, I tried to go into games/com.mojang/resource_packs and it was an empty folder for me. I am on Android and I really wanna try this custom skin feature. If you fix this I would be greatful in return.

  54. Kc says:

  55. LOL_LP says:

    Nice! Thank you! It’s really easy to build adventure maps with it… But after I have spawned somebody I can’t kill him if it is the false skin and he stands there forever ): But its really a good idea 😀

  88. Tillece says:

    This is amazing!! Well done, but I have a couple tips:
    1: you could make baby versions for smaller name tags
    2: you could many get trendier skins for them
    3:many u could even make a map to showcase them?
    You’ve done an awesome job well done!!

  89. Nerd craft says:

    You should make it to where you drop something near them and they will pick it up. It would add a more interesting way to make adventure maps.

  90. Sage Smith says:

    Well this is an excellent addon. What would be cool is if you could make a Star Wars addon. Something like Republic Commando. Ah, never mind. Nice addon though.

  119. LegendaryNacho24 says:

    Vladu11, i have an idea for an addon i think u should make. do a star wars addon with bb-8 as a cat, R2D2 as the dog(R2D2 can shoot projectiles), a landspeeder that replaces pigs( you can ride it and control it), clone troopers replace skeletons, villagers become jawas, zombies become boba fett, endermen become darth vader, husks become yoda, sheep become something and allow it to change textures, lightsabers, blasters, and i think you can think of more

  120. Ryu says:

    Useful im my Realms haha thanks..whoever made this addon

  122. nightmareLJT says:

    Thank you for this addon min I liked it. I’ m gonna make an adventure map with this addons thanx…..?????

  123. iOS users says:

    iOS users download filemaster and then download the resource and then rename it
    (Name).mcpack into (name).zip (just change it to mcpack to zip rename it ) and then unzip it then go to the entities then retexture the npc and then delete the skin of villager and replace it with a new one and name it villager.png,smith.png etc. and then go back where the pack icon is and press where there is no files and select “select all” then it should be blue then press and hold one file and press “zip” then rename it into NPC.mcpack (does not matter what you name it) then press and hold and press “open with” and choose mcpe. That is how
    That took me long.

        • Jessie says:

          It happens with my brother’s iPad too, Not for mine, Mine is just completely fine. I think it has something to do with how much storage your device has left, Maybe delete some apps you don’t need to use anymore or remove some photos in your photo album, Re-download the app, and try again, That’s what I did with my brother’s device.
