An Elephant or a Mammoth is a large neutral mob that can be found in a variety of biomes.
Both Elephants and Mammoths will drop Hide when killed.
Elephants and Mammoths, regardless if they are calves or adults, will attack the player if provoked. Elephants or Mammoths can deal a lot of damage to the player (about 6 or 7 damage) when striking.
Elephants or Mammoths will only attack on Easy difficulty or higher.
Both Elephants and Mammoths can be tamed by feeding a calf either ten Sugar Lumps or five Cakes. Note: This will only work when they are calves.
Elephants and Mammoths can not be bred.
Once you have given the Elephant/Mammoth calf the food items, the naming screen will then appear. If you wish to rename your Elephant/Mammoth, you can right-click on it with a Book or a Medallion.
Tamed Elephants and Mammoths can be led around on a Lead, and can be healed by feeding them Bread, Hay Stacks, Baked Potatoes Or regular Potatoes.
Be careful with where you keep your Elephant or Mammoth. Hostile mobs will try to attack a tamed Elephant/Mammoth, although even the calves will fight back. You should probably have high walls and a roof to keep out Scorpions, and fences to prevent mobs from jumping over them.
After about 2-7 minecraft days your tamed Elephant or Mammoth will be fully grown and will be able to use equipment.
There are two species of Elephants and two species of Mammoths in Mo' Creatures:
- The African Elephant (or the African Bush Elephant). (Large and Light-Grey).
- The Asian Elephant. (Small and Dark-Grey.
- The Songhua River Mammoth. (Has Black patches of Fur and is Greyish-Black).
- The Woolly Mammoth. (Has Brown Fur).
An Elephant Harness can be placed on tamed, adult Elephants/Mammoths in order to make them rideable and to be able to add extra items to the Elephant/Mammoth. It is created using Hide, Wool and Iron, but is only accessible for 1 player.
If a player 'sneaks' near their Elephant/Mammoth (shift key by default), it will sit for a short time, allowing the player to sit in the Harness by right-clicking on it. To dismount an Elephant/Mammoth, press the shift key once more. Note: you can not add any of these to calves.
Elephant Howdah Edit
An Elephant Howdah is a kind of throne that can only be applied to a tamed, adult Asian Elephant. It is a purely decorative item. A Howdah can only be applied once an Elephant Harness and an Elephant Garment have been applied.
Chest Sets can be applied to tamed adult Elephants and Mammoths in order to give them their own inventory, much like Horses, Mules, Wyverns and Ostriches. Two Chest Sets can be applied to each Elephant.
Chest Sets can only be applied once an Elephant Harness has been given to the Elephant/Mammoth. Once applied, a Key will appear in the player's inventory. Woolly Mammoths can carry two extra regular chests.
Tusks are reinforcements for the Elephant/Mammoth. When wearing Tusks, Elephants and Mammoths are able to break blocks that are in their path. There are three different kinds of Tusks: The Wooden Tusks, the Iron Tusks, and the Diamond Tusks. Tusks are applied by right-clicking on tamed adult Elephant/Mammoth with the Tusks in hand, and can be taken away by right-clicking on the Elephant/Mammoth with a Pickaxe.
Songhua River Mammoths can carry a second player. In order to have a passenger, you need to first make the Mammoth sit by pressing the sneak key ('shift' by default), then the second player 'sneaks' close to the Mammoth and left-clicks on it to climb aboard.
