"More Mobs" data pack Wiki

Snapshot 2A is the 4th public version of "More Mobs" and the first and last snapshot in the 2 lineup. This update came out on May 16th, 2019 and rewrote the texture detection requirements, added 5 new mobs and replaced certain mobs in certain structures. It also updated to 1.13.2 and fixed a number of issues.

This snapshot was also the first to add Ender mobs and custom sounds to the pack. It also introduced a new mystical mob (Martyr was the only mystical mob prior to this version). A Demonic mob was also first introduced (similar to mystical mobs in the way their loot drops). A big change also occurred due to the rewrite of the "random mobs" feature of OptiFine. All "More Mobs" creatures will have a colored name tag from now on.

This meant that mobs would no longer render with wrong skins depending on their location. This also made "More Mobs" creatures unrenamable. This version also changed some existing mob textures, completely revamping the Cyclops.
