This is a mod that removes the player from the hungry list for wolves so you have to get close or attack them to get on their bad side. Doesn't impact any other part of the game.

While a pretty basic quality-of-life change, this mod is absolutely recommended for build-oriented servers that still want to keep the dangers of exploration and combat. We've been running this on our multiplayer 1.16.5 server without issue, despite the current version only going as far as support for 1.16.3.

Due to how animal hunger and spawning are implemented at this writing, wolf packs tend to slowly take over certain chunks the longer a server stays running. This generally results in certain areas becoming completely impassable as entire wolf packs aggro players whenever the chunk is loaded, causing wolves to act like dedicated player-annihilating Terminators the moment you enter their territory.

This mod removes that behavior, making coexisting with them much more manageable. Wolves will still chase wildlife, menace your goats and chickens, and give you a nasty love bite if you come too close, but will no longer chase you across the map the moment you come within range. This also themes itself and plays nicely with other mods (most notably the petai series) for folks looking to take a wolf pup in without menacing their entire family. This also only impacts wolves, so drifters and locusts are still plenty dangerous, and if you mod in other dangerous creatures (such as mods that add snakes or crabs), those will still be hostile and act as expected.

Overall, simple and nice mod, and something we appreciate quite a bit on our server.
