About NoCube’s Zombie Mobs

This mod adds an assortment of new creatures into Minecraft, which are Zombified versions of their vanilla counterparts. It’ll be rare to come across these creatures during the day, as they burn in sunlight and can only spawn during the night.

When it’s dark, Zombie Mobs can spawn like a regular Zombie would. If an animal dies during the night in Minecraft, then there’s a 50% chance for a Zombie version of that animal to spawn.

Currently, the mod adds Zombified versions of Chickens, Cats, Foxes, Wolves, Pigs, Sheep, Cows, Goats, Llamas, Bears, Ocelots, Horses, Donkeys, Mules, Pandas, Dolphins and Turtles.

Mob Differences

Each of these creatures are very different to their Vanilla counterparts. Instead of simply attacking the player, they can have their own attack styles and abilities, as seen below:

  1. Zombie Chicken: Chickens will chase players, even being able to run through 1 block gaps due to their small size. Although they’re also hostile to regular Chickens. If killed, they’ll drop Rotten Flesh and Feathers.
  2. Zombie Cat: Cats will attack players, Cats and Ocelots. If they’re able to strike something, they can inflict poison damage due to their rotting claws. Compared to regular Cats, it also has increased speed if it has low health. They’ll drop Rotten Flesh and String.
  3. Zombie Fox: Zombie Foxes are able to steal food from players, if it’s in their main-hand or off-hand slot. Like Cats, the lower their health is, the quicker they can move. When killed, they drop Rotten Flesh, and are also hostile to normal Foxes.
  4. Zombie Wolf: The Zombie version of a Wolf has the life-steal ability. So everytime it deals damage, it gains health in return. They’ll attack other Wolves, and drop Rotten Flesh.
  5. Zombie Pig: Interestingly, if a Zombie Pig catches fire (such as during daylight), they’re likely going to explode. This will break some blocks, and damage nearby entities. They’re going to drop Rotten Flesh, and be hostile to other Pigs.
  6. Zombie Sheep: Instead of gaining speed, a Zombie Sheep will gain armor the lower its health is. They’ll also drop Rotten Flesh and Wool.
  7. Zombie Goat: Like regular Goats, a Zombie Goat will still knock you back, with it being more powerful and being able to inflict the nausea effect. Regular Goats will be attacked by Zombified versions.
  8. Zombie Llama: Llamas also still spit at players and other entities. However, it can now inflict poison onto hit targets. If killed, they’ll drop Leather too, which can be useful.
  9. Zombie Bear: Polar Bears now have a Zombie variant too. As its health decreases, the amount of damage it does increases. They’re hostile to regular Polar Bears, and also Panda Bears.
  10. Zombie Ocelot: Has a speed boost at lower health. They’re hostile to other Cats and Ocelots, and only drop Rotten Flesh.
  11. Zombie Horse: Even though Zombie Horses already exist, they’re neutral. The ones included with this mod are always hostile. When they attack, they can knock you back and inflict slowness.
  12. Zombie Donkey: Like with Zombie Horses, they can knock you back but will instead give the Mining Fatigue effect.
  13. Zombie Mule: This is the only creature that doesn’t spawn naturally, it only does so if a regular Mule is killed during the night.
  14. Zombie Panda: If hit by a Zombie Panda, you’ll be hit with the Hunger effect, which might reduce sprinting. These will also attack Polar Bears and other Pandas.
  15. Zombie Dolphin: Being hit by a Zombie Dolphin can cause you to drown, as you’ll sink to the bottom of the ocean.
  16. Zombie Turtle: Zombie Turtles will give Mining Fatigue to hit targets for 1 minute. As a drop, they give Rotten Flesh and Seagrass.

Curing Zombie Mobs

It is possible to cure a Zombified mob, which will turn them back to their regular form. Like with Zombie Villagers, throw a Splash Potion of Weakness on them, and then right click them with a Golden Apple.

After around 100 seconds, it will be transformed back into a regular mob. You might want to cage them up for this process though.
