minecraft fabric mod elemental creepers refabricated

By luligabi12

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

You might be questioning why the world needs more creepers, but trust the process. This mod adds in various new variations to the standard creeper based on biomes and environment. Based on its variation, their explosions effect the environment. For example, the earth creeper explodes into a dirt pile, while the water creeper leaves behind a water fountain.

minecraft fabric mod more villagers

By SameDifferent

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

After some time on a server, trades with Minecraft villagers can get boring. This mod adds multiple new jobs for villagers, along with workstations and unique trades. Some professions you’ll see are netherologist, forester, engineer, florist, and hunter!

minecraft fabric mod identity

By Draylar1

Game Versions: 1.15, 1.16, 1.17

This is a unique mod that I recommend for any server type. Identity allows players to transform their appearance to various mobs within the world. A few identities even have their own abilities. For example, the creeper form explodes the nearby area, while the enderman form lets you teleport around.

minecraft fabric mod golems galore

By ffrannny

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

Have you ever looked at a golem and thought, “Why can’t you be different?” Golems Galore is your answer! It adds a variety of golems (some with special abilities) that generate in villages or can be crafted.

minecraft fabric mod terrarian slimes
Yes, that is a slime with an umbrella hat!

By D4rkness_King

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

Inspired by Terraria, Terrarian Slimes adds slime mob variants to the world. Slime variants spawn throughout the world instead of just in a slimechunk, and come in different sizes and colors. There is also a boss slime called The King Slime, which can be summoned and defeated to gain a tool that will make all slime peaceful towards the player.

minecraft fabric mod npc variety

By YumatanGames

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

NPC Variety adds something the villages greatly lack, a variety in appearance. While it doesn’t add any new professions for villagers, it does add eight skin tones and five eye colors, both of which can be passed down to their children. It also closes their eyes as they sleep, which isn’t something I thought about until right now.

minecraft fabric mod environmental creepers

By masady

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16

One of the worst things about creepers is how they tend to destroy dropped items when they explode. This mod helps prevent that by dropping all blocks that a creeper explodes! It also allows for configuration for creeper explosion distance, strength, and more.

minecraft fabric mod animal feeding trough

By Slexom

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

One of the hard parts about breeding animals is remembering to feed them. This mod adds a block that mobs will eat from and breed as if the player had fed them. It’s great for mob farms!

minecraft fabric mod mooblooms cluckshrooms

By YanisBft

Game Versions: 1.14, 1.15, 1.16, 1.17

Mooblooms are adorable cows that mimic the flower or organic material they’re named after. For example, the Blue Orchid Moobloom is a cow that grows blue orchids on its back. This mod also comes with four similar chicken variants called Cluckshrooms!

minecraft fabric mod eldritch mobs
Spiders are the worst. Look at all those effects!

By cyborg_pigeon

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

If you’re a challenge seeker or someone who just wants to die a lot in Minecraft, then consider adding this mod. Eldritch Mobs adds dangerous and unique mobs to your world. There are three tiered categories of modified mobs with configurable abilities, health, and dropped loot. Abilities could include yeeter, where the mob launches the target into the air, or duplicator, where the mob will occasionally create a clone of itself!
