Custom Mob Settings

Custom mobs can be assigned unique settings to differentiate their values, such as speed, hologram height, etc. We explain here every setting, how to use it and what it changes.

Where are these settings located?

Settings are located in each custom mob's configuration file (customMobs folder). Mob settings are set at the top of their respective .amob file, e.g.:

  health: 30 # Mob's health 
  sounds: BLAZE # Sound List:
  hostile: true # Is mob hostile? If set to false, mob will not be aggressive towards players
  nametagHeight: 0.3 # How high should the nametag be?
  damage: 3 # How much damage should the mobs do to players?
  animateOnWalking: true # Should animation be active only when mob is walking?
  headFollow: true # Should mob's head follow target
  animationSmoothness: 20 # How smooth should the animation be? 1-20, higher being smoother.
  animationSpeed: 10 # How smooth should the animation be? 1-20, lower being faster.
  walkingSpeed: 0.9 # How custom fast mob walks
