Creeper Overhaul Mod

Creeper Overhaul introduces lots of new Creeper species, which are biome-dependent. These aren’t just texture overhauls, as the models of Creepers are also changed, as well as their behavior.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!

Creeper Types

Depending on the Biome, a Creeper can now spawn as many different styles. They have their own Spawn Eggs too, and regular Creepers that exist in Vanilla Minecraft are still able to spawn.

Creepers in the Badlands and Desert both have a Tiny Cactus on top of their head. You can obtain this, and wear it yourself by using Shears on those Creepers.

Some Creepers even have different behaviors. One example is the Snowy Creeper, which is quite cute. If you come across this Creeper, it will be neutral, and won’t attack the player unless they’re attacked first.

They won’t explode either, as they use melee attacks. Whereas when it comes to Bamboo Creepers, they might attack you, but they’re afraid of Pandas.

In total, there’s 14 new Creepers. These are for the Jungle, Bamboo, Desert, Badlands, Hills, Savannah, Mushroom, Swamp, Dripstone, Cave, Dark Oak, Spruce, Beach and Snowy.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
