Upcoming: Evil Minecraft (V0.666)

evilminecraftthumb

A couple of months ago, Evil_Notch assembled a team of modders to work on an “Evil Minecraft” mod. It got a lot of attention and had a good list of features that ranged from mobs to world generation. Ever since 1.8 hit, the mod has been dormant, and updates have been few and far between, but now they posted an image containing a list of all the features that will be included in the 0.666 update of the mod, the biggest one yet. It’s supposed to hit not long after the 1.2 update for Minecraft, so we are probably looking at a early March release. Exceptional modders including DrZhark and Hippopolatimus are working on this mod, so expect nothing short of awesome.

I’ve played this mod extensively before, and I can tell you that it is fun, but hard. The mod makes almost every mob much harder to fight in a different way such as the Camouflage Creepers which take the color of whatever block they’re on, meaning they will be even harder to spot. Regular animals are also made dangerous. Besides regular pigs, there are Creepigs which are green and act like regular creepers – they will chase you down and blow you up. The chickens have a chance of turning into Giant Chickens when you hit them, or when night falls. Giant chickens shoot  fireballs like Ghast, except they do so with 3 fireballs at a time, not just one. Boars are also in the game with this mod, and they are basically pigs that defend themselves. Killing sheep isn’t as easy either, as Rams spawn with sheep, and they will protect them from any intruders by charging, which you don’t want.

Ashes appear when something burns down, dungeons also include creeper nests, moss and vines spread over time, blood sprays all over the ground when you kill stuff, pigman clans roam the world and almost everything is out to kill you. But hey, it’s all fine because torches emit light when held. That makes up for all the bad stuff, right?

Here is a full list of features in the upcoming update, taken from this image posted on the Evil Minecraft fanpage:

  • Ender creepers and Ender ghasts
