Latest file for v1.18.0: 1-click install

Patched version of the original mod, with the owner's permission. IT's not been tested much, so let me know if you find any bugs.

(Fair warning though, I'm not an expert coder. I just fix stuff. :D)



Regarding spawn rates of creatures: for those finding them too high or low, I can tweak those manually on request. I'm not an expert at game balance, my apologies.

Zeorik I overlooked this comment:

Hi, luv the mod, was wondering if you can get your Piranha and forest fish to attack Kiptirx's fantay Orks and goblins whenever they enter the water?
...also the villagers as well from the villagers mod.

Also gotta say that the Piranha and forest fish are ferocious little buggers, i built a stone keep in the middle of a lake and on it i built a landing pad for my flyer, four blocks above the water out of stone bricks, two blocks thick, when i walk out on it i can hear the fish jumping underneth trying to get to me four blocks above the water lol, really lends to the idea of these little over aggressive snappy fish.

any ways Cheers and keep up the great works.

NMND Like I spoke to mohandar on Discord, I'm not the original creator of the mod and dug throguh it a fair bit. I couldn't quite find any way of altering their attack ranges, sadly. I could prevent them from attacking in certain situations, but it ultimately also made thier movement more janky.

💬 NMND, Aug 10th 2023 at 3:48 PM

What Mohandar said. Piranha and Forest fish both have 2 tiles of range, aggroing on me and hitting me outside the water. It works fine if the block on the sides of the water are two high - you can still crouch and hit them with a spear - but prepare a few flint spears for that.

They also don't seem to attack swimming Drifters (aggroing on the player on land instead), which is a bit disappointing. I was looking forward to a piranha moat.

💬 Mohandar, Jul 9th 2023 at 1:08 PM

Can you do something about the piranha attacking the player when he is outside of water?
They have an insane ammount of range...
Is some way to tweak that for player looking into the mod configs otherwise? 
They even attack the player when he is withing in  the raft sometime, that's kinda too much...
It's ok if they damage the player but only when he is in the water swimming...

I haven't even booted up the latest version, haha. I'll download and give it a test later today, see if I can't fix it.

💬 Streetwind, Apr 5th 2023 at 1:44 PM

Does not work on 1.18.0-rc.2. Numerous entries in client-main.txt about missing or broken textures for all the fish. Likely something changed in the format the game expects, so what the mod offers no longer works.

💬 ZeorikAuthor, Dec 30th 2022 at 3:04 AM

I... really don't know then? Mak sure you uninstalled the broken version and are getting a totally fresh install of the mod. I just downloaded it myself from the website to verify that it had the requisite shape data. It's the same as the one I'm using personally (aside from minore spawn rate tweaks)

Oh, and obviously. I mean download 1.4.3 version. I didn't bother patching the earlier broken ones as they're older, inferior versions.

💬 Belarrius, Dec 29th 2022 at 11:15 PM

Hi @Zeorik, the latest version have the same problem, I can get bite by the fish but I connot see this fish "piranah, shark, etc"

💬 ZeorikAuthor, Dec 25th 2022 at 10:17 PM

Download the lastest version again, just fixed the upload. Belarrius

💬 ZeorikAuthor, Dec 25th 2022 at 10:12 PM

... I... How did... Somehow the last patch only had an Entity folder .Apologies. Fixing now.

💬 Belarrius, Dec 25th 2022 at 5:51 PM


Piranahs are now invisible for me and my friends since the two last patch

💬 LuckyWendigo, Dec 24th 2022 at 1:42 AM

This was an issue with the previous versions of the mod, so not too surprised there. I always dismissed it as "the piranas can leap from the water a little, and the sharks get your toes" lol. Thanks for patching it up to the current version, friend! I wish you well.

💬 ZeorikAuthor, Dec 16th 2022 at 3:36 AM

I'm not really sure how to fix the  attack range of the fish, my apologies! I'm not the most skilled coder (I didn't create the mod, but patched it) I did some small tests and just couldn't really figure out a good way. 

💬 DarkNetNES, Dec 15th 2022 at 4:20 PM

😀 hello, a great mod, great potential, just to inform, the largest marine animals are generated in very small areas of water, also piranhas have the ability to damage out of water close to the player, I think sharks too, although The mod is very interesting, I look forward to updating it !!!!

💬 ZeorikAuthor, Dec 5th 2022 at 5:09 AM

Pushed this out for tonight; it likely has some bugs from the original, as I merely just got them 'working' again. Tomorrow I'm going to go through, reference the entity files to the Salmon, and see if I can't get  their swimming behaviors to work better.
