Why a Resource Pack?

Unlike behavior packs, resource packs can be applied in the global resources, bringing convenience to Minecraft players and community. 

The only downside to this is that the mobs will randomize, however this can be rectified by the player using an optional behavior pack.

In this update:

  • Fixed compatibility with new mobs added by addons
  • Baby cow geometry should be fixed
  • Added two named variants, “Dave” the cod and “Koi” the salmon
  • All named variants now use Capital first letters (full list of names on discord)
  • Added one last round of community textures
