Snakes spawn on opaque blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation. Snakes also spawn in the Wyvern Lair dimension.
Snakes are elongated, legless reptiles, much like snakes in real life. The snakes in the mod are mostly based on real life species; such as the cobra, corn snake, rattlesnake, coral snake, and the python.
Snakes drop from 0 to 2 eggs upon death. The name of the egg dropped depends on the type of snake. For example, if a rattlesnake drops eggs, they will be called rattlesnake eggs. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Note: Each snake has their own behavior, and some may be harder to find than others. Snakes may be passive or hostile depending on the species.
If a player is holding a mouse or bird near a snake and then drops it, the snake will hunt down and attack it; they will go for these small creatures.
There are two types of passive snakes: the dark snake and the spotted snake. They will flee from the player when approached, and they won't attack you, even if attacked first.
There are six aggressive snakes. They lift up their heads and hiss at you when a player or mouse is near them as a warning. If you move three blocks away, the snake will ignore you. However, if the player or mouse continues to remain in the range of a hostile snake, it will become aggressive and attack the player/mouse, with some species capable of poisoning you with a Poison III effect for several seconds, which can drain your health very quickly; most hostile snakes are venomous.
A tamed snake is passive, and will never attack the player. It also won't retreat when approached. For some reason, snakes that have been tamed will still lift up their heads when you're near, but they won't attack or hiss at you.
If a snake egg is placed in a well lit area, it will hatch a tamed snake after a certain period of time. After the egg hatches, the naming screen will then appear. A tamed snake can be picked up by right-clicking on it, and can be placed down by right-clicking again. Tamed snakes can be healed with raw rat.
As time passes, the snake will grow larger until it reaches its maximum size. Green snakes, coral snakes and spotted snakes stay rather small, but pythons and cobras can grow relatively large.
There are eight types of snake in Mo' Creatures.
To get a snake egg, input the following command(s) below. Look above for the ID of the snake you want to hatch.
|1.6 or earlier||/give @p 4101 1 [ID]|
|1.7 and later||/give @p MoCreatures:mocegg 1 [ID]|
- Unlike rats, attacking one snake will not provoke other snakes in the area. This can be used to make eggs easier to obtain.
- Pythons can slither on top of water, and don't become submerged like other snakes.
- Snakes never take fall damage, even when the player lifts it up into the air and drops it.
