A fan of Minecraft adds several new skins to the game’s mobs to add a bit of variety to the inhabitants of Mojang’s world.
A Minecraft modder has given some of the game’s mobs new looks by giving them different skins. Mojang will soon release version 1.20, which will add even more content to the sandbox game that was released in 2011. Then there’s the fan base, which is always putting out its own custom changes that add to the world’s almost infinite appeal.
Given that mobs are a fundamental component of Minecraft, adding more to see and interact with will only enhance the experience. The studio has added a large number of NPCs to the game since its release over a decade ago, ranging from hardworking villagers to hostile skeletons, zombies, and Endermen. Now, there are even more to observe frolicking throughout the blocky landscape.
According to PCGamesN, modder nyuppo has uploaded his most recent project, which adds variants to several Minecraft mobs. The description on Curse Forge, a website that hosts various mods for the game, states that “More Mob Variants” includes new skins, such as three for the cat, eight for the chicken (including a skeleton version), several for the zombie, including an Alex skin, and more. There are just under 40 new skins for these particular mobs, but the modders have not yet confirmed whether other NPCs will receive their own variants.
Even though the game is already enormous, the modding community has added even more features and concepts. Some Minecraft mods completely alter the feel of the game, such as one that adds an entire colony to the world or another that transports players to outer space. This, along with the official updates from the developer, explains why the game appears to be virtually endless.
Mojang’s development of Minecraft Legends, an action-strategy spin-off, demonstrates the continued viability of the company’s intellectual property. It appears that the gaming community is not yet ready to stop creating in the sandbox game, and with the 1.20 patch on the horizon, it will be a while before fans move on, especially if modders continue to release their own content for the game.
Minecraft is currently accessible on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
