Creeper Confetti Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

Within their first few days of playing, most Minecraft initiates witness one of the most horrific events in the game.  After spending an hour or so building a glorious home to defend against zombies and spiders, a curious and innocent looking creeper wanders through your open gate and approaches you.  It hisses and begins to expand, and then suddenly…

Let’s face it – even if they can be adorable sometimes, we all hate Creepers.  User Nemesis, creator of the Fez mod (who may have changed his name at one point), turns these horrifyingly destructive pests into adorable party favors with Creeper Confetti!

 

With this mod, Creepers become harmless decorative sacrifices who literally explode into a storm of colorful joy.  Click the image below for an animation showing this process:

See?  No harm done!  This mod can both provide a unique and interesting visual element, as well as reducing the difficulty for newer or younger players (or just players who don’t want their hard work destroyed).

 

Currently, the mod requires both the server and the player to have it installed, making its implementation a bit cumbersome.  Nemesis is working on a way to have it become client-side only in an impending update.  He also acknowledges the user Draco Dragon for the idea, so if you enjoy this whimsically simple mod, you can thank both of them.

Creepers are one of the deadliest enemies in the game due to their ability to destroy the environment.  Do you feel that taking out this ability makes the game less fun or more enjoyable?  Leave your thoughts below in the comments.
