Animania Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2 (Improves the Passive Animals)

Animania Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is an immersive mod that replaces and improves the passive animals in Minecraft, adding multiple breeds, proper genders, new behaviors, and several new species.

Improvements include:

  • Better models, textures, and animations
  • Proper feed and care of animals
  • Improved breeding and more realistic child growth
  • More accurate behaviors and actions
  • New and better resources and products

New Behaviors:

  • For animals to be happy, they must have access to a consistent supply of food and water, and in some cases (like Pigs) need a place to have fun (like a mud pit)
  • If attacked, some animals will run in fear for an extended period of time and may act more unpredictably near you. Others may attack back (like the Bull).
  • If animals do not eat or drink, they become unhappy. They will become weaker, make less noise, and emit smoke particles.
  • Animals will only breed or drop their top resources when they are happy, so you are encouraged to take good care of your animals and their environment.
  • Animals can be fed and watered using Troughs or Open Ponds, or by Hand
  • Animals will eagerly eat their favorite foods or drink from a water bucket by hand

Please note: on 1.11.2, WAILA mod will show you if your animal is hungry or thirsty and other information, simply by pressing sneak while viewing the animal.

Making Friends:

  • The new animals are found all over the overworld, located in different biomes and biome types more accurate to their species and breeds (Animania 1.10 is compatible with Biome Dictionary).
  • To make friends with animals, simply give them their favorite food. See animal types below to learn more.
  • There are achievements for each breed. Collect them all and win big prizes. Note: Prizes equal the amount of sheer satisfaction you get from accomplishing things in video games.
  • New species and breeds will constantly be added to the game.
  • All animals can use a lead (you will need it). A simple recipe for Lead has been included in the mod.
  • You can easily name animals in the mod. A simple recipe for Name Tags has been included int he mod (String + Gold Nugget)

Breeding and Raising Children

Breeding is only enabled for 4 animal types at the moment: Chickens, Cows, Draft Horses, and Pigs.

Cow Breeding:

To breed cows, simply put an eligible Cow near an eligible Bull of any breed type. If the Cows are not already mated, they will fall in love and make children. Any two breeds of the same species can mate. By default it takes around 1 Minecraft day for a child to be born. The resulting breed is based on chance. Make sure you keep the Mother fed and watered during this time. The Father must stay within a 20 block radius of the mother during gestation and birth.

Draft Horse Breeding:

To breed horses, simply put an eligible Mare near an eligible Stallion of any breed type. If the Horses are not already mated, they will fall in love and make children. Any two breeds of the same species can mate. By default it takes around 1 Minecraft day for a child to be born. The resulting breed is based on chance. Make sure you keep the Mother fed and watered during this time. The Father must stay within a 20 block radius of the mother during gestation and birth.

Pig Breeding:

Similar to cows, simply put an eligible Sow near an eligible Hog of any breed type. If neither of the Pigs are in a committed relationship, they will fall in love and make children. Any two breeds of the same species can mate. By default it takes around 1 Minecraft day for a child to be born. The resulting breed is based on chance. Make sure you keep the Mother happy during this time. The Father must stay within a 20 block radius of the mother during gestation and birth.

Chick Hatching:

To make baby Chicks, simply place a nest for your Hen (recipe below). If the Hen is fed and watered, and enough time has gone by, they will lay eggs in your nest (up to 3). If there is a Rooster nearby, they will hatch into baby chicks. Otherwise, you can gather eggs directly from the nest.

Please note: on 1.11.2, WAILA mod will show you if your animal is mated, and if you have named your animals, it will tell you the mate’s name (if you sneak while viewing)

Raising Children:

As long as you keep your animal kids fed and watered they will grow. By default, it takes around 1 Minecraft day to become an adult (this value can be adjusted in the config, under Growth Ticker Timer, where a lower number makes children grow up faster).
