Warning! 2.0.0+ is not compatible with older versions, you will lose all your cages.

For those who are tired of driving hens or sheep for thousands of blocks 🙃

Cage case can be crafted on an anvil using all tool materials, to turn it into an empty cage, add resin. By default, it captures with a 10 to 25% chance. If you hit and could not capture, then the cage will be doungrade to case, or it will break with a 50-5% chance. The chance depends on the material and is written in the cage tooltip.

You can increase the cage capture chance in two ways:

  1. Decrease the health of the mob. This will give +1% chance for every -2% of the mob's health (50% efficiency). 
  2. Use bait. By default, these types of baits are available in the mod, but you can change, add (or patch with your mod) in config/baits.json, the rest of the cages settings are in the itemtypes/cage.json attributes.

The first and second methods can be used together. 

Default baits:

  • All chicken: any grain, capture chance: 100%
  • All rabbits: carrot, capture chance: 100%
  • All pigs: turnip, capture chance: 50%
  • All sheep: cabbage, capture chance: 50%
  • All foxes: raw poultry, capture chance: 25%
  • All wolf: raw redmeat, capture chance: 25%
