MobRider v0.32 I am proud to present to you my most complex mod yet - MobRider - a mod for riding and controlling mobs. Instructions MOUNT To mount a mob, right click on it while holding a saddle. Unlike with traditional pigs, you will keep your saddle when you do this. To get off again, right click with the saddle again. Any living entity can be mounted (including other players) CONTROL To direct your mob's movement, left click with your whip (fishing rod) in the direction you want to go (being careful not to hit your mob). It will (usually) go the way you want, though you must continue clicking to keep it moving. Alternatively you can use the commands listed below. CARE Your mob will care for you. If you are attacked while riding it, it will destroy your attacker. If you start a fight with someone, it will lend a hand. (Assuming your chosen steed is capable of attacking that is). If the mob was friendly to you when you started riding it it will never stop being your friend so long as you stay on its back. If you mount a spider during the day, it wont betray you come nightfall. In return, you should look after your mob. Whenever you give it a command it will talk to you. It's name is prefixed with a damage meter. When your mobs health get's low, right click with food to feed it. (Note: mobs can eat a much wider range of things than humans can). Mobs will go much faster when at full health than normally. Commands /mob go <north/south/northeast etc> <(optional) distance> Instructs the mob you are riding to start moving in the given direction. If a distance is supplied, it will walk that far and then stop (maximum distance is 250 blocks). /mob goto <playername> Instructs your mob to go to the specified player (no matter how far away they are). /mob goto <X> <Z> Mob will go to the specified coordinate /mob attack <playername/entityID> Commands your mob to move to and attack the given player/entity. If the mob is a friendly animal, this will make it follow you around (forever). (You can find out the entity ID of an entity by pressing f3 and noting the number above the entity's head.) /mob follow <playername/entityID> Commands your mob to follow the player/entity around (until you unmount) /mob mount <playername/entityID> mob will mount the player/entity. You wont be able to control mounted mobs. (Slightly glitchy). /mob unmount Mob will unmount. /mob stop Commands your mob to stop everything it's doing. Permissions If you have permissions 2.0 installed, you can control capabilities with the following self-explanitory permissions: mobRider.command.goto mobRider.command.attack mobRider.command.go mobRider.command.stop mobRider.command.follow mobRider.command.mount mobRider.players mobRider.animals mobRider.monsters Feature Summary Use saddles to ride any mob, animal and even players Control mobs/animals by use of a whip (fishing rod) Command mobs to move, attack and stop using simple chat commands Your mob will protect you from anything causing you harm If you attack anyone, your mob will lend a hand Feed your mob to replenish its health. Your mob will talk to you too. Travel at much faster speeds than walking Permissions Recommended Plugins This plugin goes very well with fullwall's excellent mob taming plugin Known Issues Pigs don't work so well (ironicaly) Can't control ghasts or squid.
