Realistic Bottlenose Dolphin Trainer Addon [Project Bottlenose]
Hi, I’m DolphinMasterMB! I’m the creator of the Dolphin Trainer Addon! It all started with my experiences with real bottlenose dolphins! I adore them! That’s why me and a friend started working on Project Bottlenose! Here we add a Realistic Bottlenose Dolphin to Minecraft including some amazing animations! Like jumps, Tricks, Dances, Petting interactions and a gorgeous swimming animation! All available to try out in this super cool addon! I like to learn and experiment with Minecraft coding! I’m practicing my programming skills everyday! Some features are being worked on daily! Stay tuned for cool new stuff! I’m always improving my content!
Please use English language ingame for the best experience! Using another language could cause ingame issues like not being able to do certain interactions!
The actual behavior system I use, detects dropped item’s and register them by their exact name! That’s why different named items don’t work! The system actually depends on the Minecraft language you use!
Thank you very much Ulises Marvels the great designer! For Making the Amazing realistic Bottlenose model and texture! She shaped those beautiful creatures living in Minecraft as of today!
Thanks to Asian Roofs Team for learning me some nice programming methods and learning me how to add custom entities into Minecraft!
Thanks to my fans for giving me nice suggestions that help me shape and improve my fantastic addon!
This addon adds Realistic Bottlenose Dolphins into Minecraft! Those Dolphins use the already pretty amazing Advanced AI from the popular Dolphin Trainer Addon! This system improves very fast! It’s my hobby to work on improving it!
Here follow some instructions about using this amazing addon! It’s actually pretty similar to the original Dolphin Trainer Addon:
New Smart Dolphin NPC Menu:
How to get it:
Tame a dolphin! (You can find out how on this addon page!), Then tempt it with a Amethyst Shard item, when you have it’s attention, interact with it with the item, to enable it’s Smart NPC properties!
The NPC will have it’s name set to “NPC” by default, but you can manually name it however you like!
NPC’s have many interactive features! When being tempt(Also tempted by Sticks and Book and Quill for some odd development reasons lol!) You can access a variety of super cool, handy and even some odd dolphin behaviors from a very nice dialogue menu! There is a very nice example video showing it in detail below this text! Please make sure to check it out! It shows most of the menu features in great detail! I hope you will be able to watch it to the end, it’s quite long though lol!
Some important tips:
Sometimes a random blank dialogue NPC dolphin will spawn(There is a small chance for development reasons)! Those aren’t really bad, because you can claim them, by separating them from the other dolphins(Because the following mechanic needs to be able to target a single dolphin entity!), when close to the separated dolphin, look straight up, to give it the Smart NPC properties!
If a dolphin somehow glitches or got stuck, you can press the “[Reset]” button in their Smart NPC menu to refresh their behaviors!
Dolphins with Smart NPC properties can’t be ridden, but don’t fred, you can use the “Revert Tame” button to disable the Smart NPC properties and revert them back to a normal tamed dolphin! Now you can ride it again! You can even use the familiar dolphin interactions you would use before!
Nice mention: When naming a dolphin manually, it’s name persists, even when changing properties!
You can name dolphins like you are used to!
Another few quick tips:
When making dolphins jump, make sure to stop tempting them (Deselect the item) and take some distance! For the best results!
Use the “Start Stay” button to make a dolphin stay! This will be very handy, when you want to give a specific dolphin some personal attention! For instance having a nice snuggle session!
Freshly new behavior system:
I added new methods for Petting and Jumping on demand as well as a very nice new behavior called Innovate!
I also added a Dolphin tempt separation system to help you manage your Dolphinarium!
And also a freaky experimental morphing system!
If you prefer the older method, you can enable it, by dropping a Book and Quill item.
And disable it by dropping a Sponge item. The old modes is disabled by default!

Some details about different interactions:
Tame Dolphins, by tempting them with any type of fish(Wild dolphins don’t always prioritize being tempt, so be patient), Then feed them some fish(Taming them successfully is based on chance). When tamed successfully, dolphins are way more easily tempted by fish. You can even tempt Tamed dolphins specifically, by using a Heart of the Sea item. Tamed dolphins can interact in many more ways. Feeding them when already tamed encourage them to breed. You can also feed them to heal them, if they are injured.
Dolphins can dance with you:
Tempt some dolphins with fish, keep there attention, then turn around 360 degrees close to them. And they will dance together with you!
You get text info, when you perform a successful dance.
Dolphins can do a wiggle dance:
Look fully up or down to give yourself a value 1 or 2. There are 2 different wiggle dances. You can perform one of those dances, to nod multiple times. You will get text info, if used successfully.
The new Innovate system:
Tempt the dolphins of choice, when you have their attention, select a Tropical fish item, then interact with them, by pressing the interaction button. Now Innovate while start!
What is innovate actually: It’s a reference to the IMATA Dolphin Trainer Academy, where Innovate stands for an advanced scientific learned dolphin behavior, where the dolphin performs a random behavior of choice tied to a specific hand signal! It’s one of many eastereggs hidden inside my addon! The dolphins can randomize between a average of 24 behaviors and trick in my addon! Maybe give it a try!
Tips for riding dolphins:
When a dolphin is tamed, you can ride it. You can even control it fully. When looking straight down, the dolphin dives underwater. When looking straight up the dolphin breaches. You can even jump while riding it! Crouch to dismount. You can even tempt dolphins fully up and down now! You also get text info when breaching and diving.
Some basic tricks:
You can make the dolphin show it’s Belly by being close to the dolphin, then quickly look around 70 degrees down.
The dolphin can make a Flukewalk like animation by quickly looking around 70 degrees up.
You get text info, when using basic tricks.
The Dolphin tempt separation system:
I made a system that helps you separate big groups of dolphins to manage your Dolphinarium!
You can now bind dolphins of choice to specific items to separate individuals for potential snuggle moments or a specific training. You can also use this to separate prefered groups of dolphins!
You can use the items: Emerald, Diamond, Lapis Lazuli, Redstone Dust, Iron Ingot and Gold Ingot to bind dolphins to be able to tempt them with that specific item! This could become really handy for for instance shows or roleplaying! You can unbind a dolphin with a Book item anytime! To reassign them!
You can play Aquaman and have a legendary dolphin swim:
Just start swimming, and the dolphin will follow!
You can drop different items to get inspiration. By looking at a dolphin from an average distance, you will share your inspiration value. The dolphin being inspired will make that specific custom jump: Kelp=Backflip  Raw Salmon=Frontflip  Tropical Fish=Corkscrew  Raw Cod=Multibackflip  Pufferfish=Backflop  Sea Pickle=Dashflip  Inc Sac=Mixflip  Nautilus Shell=Doublefrontflip  Glow Inc Sac=Frontsideflip  Prismarine Crystal=Backsideflip  Stick=Alien (As suggested by a very friendly dolphin behaviorist on Youtube)
You can show the jump info, by looking straight up for Minecraft 60 ticks.
You can also make a dolphin jump on demand:
New Jump on demand system:
Tempt the dolphins you desire, when you have their attention, select a Salmon item, Interact with them by pressing the interaction button, Then stop tempting them. Let them swim for a bit and they will eventually make a nice jump, most times including a cool animation! Enjoy the show!
There are some really cool petting animations:
New petting system:
Drop one of the items mentioned in the Petting interaction list to give yourself a value of choice! Those values are assigned to the specific petting animations! When you have such value, tempt the dolphin you want. When you have their attention, select a Pufferfish item, then interact with them, by pressing the button assigned to interaction! Then the animations of both the player and the dolphin while start! You are now snuggling with the dolphin! You can drop the listed items anytime to change the interaction! But you can easily start the selected animation multiple times with the Pufferfish, without dropping items each time!
Tempt a dolphin with fish, stay close to it, then drop one of this items for the animation(Old method):
Raw Cod=Belly petting
Raw Salmon=Belly massage
Sea Pickle=Back massage
Secret: Show the dolphin some extra love with a specific item
Make sure the dolphin stays close and try to time the animation right.
The petting animations are pretty versatile, those could be used in many different ways.
You get informed with text info when you successfully use a petting interaction.
Tip: You can make a dolphin stay.
Tempt a dolphin, then crouch to be able to make it sit. When the dolphin stays, it’s much easier to pet it.
This also helps, when trying the Slideout behavior!
Make sure to only do this in shallow water or on a platform. Considering you need to be crouched to unable this function!
There’s an awsome Beach Ball available to try:
To activate it, look straight up for around 40 seconds. You get some info along the process. If you stop looking up you will cancel the process(This is to prevent over using it and prevent it from occurring at unexpected moments). When it spawns, it levitates near the player and you can push it, by hitting it in the center. Dolphins will enjoy playing with it and eventually do super cool tricks and potentially smash it around. You can recall the Toy, by looking around 70 degrees up. And delete it, by being close and looking straight down. I recommend only using one at a time.
The Experimental Morphing system:
I added a optional morphing system to the addon! Made with role playing in mind! I got inspired by a friend to do so! It’s made to be used in survival! Tempt the dolphin you wanna be, when you are close to the dolphin, drop a Ender Pearl item to start morphing! You can now pretend to be that specific dolphin! You can swim and jump and be trained by your friends! Warning: Don’t Morph, when close to multiple dolphins and definitely not ride the dolphin, when Morphing! It can harm the experience! To stop the Morph, drop a Book item! Keep in mind this is a crazy experiment! Don’t try this at home lmao!
Tip: Make sure to delete the older versions of the addon, then freshly install the new version. For the best results!
Download the mcaddon version for an automatic install option. If that doesn’t work for you, try installing it with another file manager.
Add it to your Minecraft world, Then everything works right away! You only have to get along with the enhanced dolphins!
Thank you very much for using my Addon!
