Natural generation Edit
Turtles spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above in swamps. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation.
Turtles are small mobs that are mostly green in color, and are covered with a large shell. A turtle that has been named after one of the TMNT characters will don a headband and carry a weapon on top of their shell (they never use this weapon, however).
When killed, turtles drop 0 to 2 pieces of raw turtle meat. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
If a turtle has been named after one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters, they will have a chance to drop their own specific weapon when killed:
- Turtle was named Leonardo: Drops a katana.
- Turtle was named Donatello: Drops a bo.
- Turtle was named Michelangelo: Drops a nunchaku.
- Turtle was named Raphael: Drops a sai.
Turtles act like most passive mobs; they wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and usually stay out of water (although they can swim in it). Turtles will hiss and retreat into their shells when anything larger than them approaches, including the player.
Turtles can be flipped onto their back by right-clicking on them, and it takes several attempts for them to flip themselves back over. When a turtle has taken damage, a 'clang' sound can be heard, similar to an anvil sound. Turtles are resistant to most attacks if its inside it's shell, so you have to flip it and then hit it afterwards.
To tame a turtle, it needs to be given either sugar canes or melons by dropping it near the turtle you want to tame. You have to drop it on the block they're hiding on, otherwise they wont eat it, and then wait for the turtle to eat the food item(s). Turtles will not eat the sugar canes or melon if they are inside their shells, so you must back away after dropping the food in order for the turtle to be tamed. Tamed turtles can be healed by feeding them sugar canes or melons.
A tamed turtle can be placed on your head by right-clicking on it. Turtles on the ground will follow the player regardless of what is in hand. One must be careful when owning a turtle, as it may be vulnerable to attacks by untamed scorpions or other mobs.
Once tamed, turtles will automatically grow, regardless of where they are or what they are fed. They can even be left in a cave, alone with no food, and will still grow.
Easter egg Edit
If a tamed turtle has been named after any of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters, (Leonardo - blue, Michelangelo - orange, Donatello - purple, Raphael - red) they will bear outfits and weapons reminiscent of the ninja turtles from the comics.
v8.0.0 DEVa Edit
- Turtle swimming animation improved.
- Turtles will not receive damage when on the player's head.
- Turtles have been made 'shy' again.
- Fixed spawning turtle bug (they used to spawn everywhere).
- Fixed pet mounting bug with turtles.
- Added turtle Easter egg.
v8.0.0 DEVa Edit
- Tamed turtles grow slower.
- Fixed bug where turtles wouldn't consume items.
- Fixed bug with turtle hissing sound.
- Added turtles.
- If a turtle is swimming, it does not hide inside its shell if a player approaches them.
- Turtles are tamed in a similar manner to birds; by throwing a food near them and waiting for them to eat it.
- Even if a turtle has grown to its maximum size, it can still be placed on the player's head. In real life, this would be impossible due to its weight.
- At full size, turtles are one of the largest passive mobs in Mo' Creatures.
- Like tamed bunnies and birds, riding a horse with a tamed turtle on your head will give the horse a power-charge. This does however, make the horse very hard to control.
