Most people can’t shape shift. However, thanks to the Minecraft mod ‘Shape Shifter Z’, you can now change shapes into any creature you like…in Minecraft of course.
This mod gives players the ability to change into any mob while using that mob’s unique special abilities. This mod is multiplayer compatible and works with both Optifine and dedicated servers.
Helpfully, the mod’s creator has added a list of the most popular creatures that players shift into. The top 10 most popular creatures to shift into are:
The mod comes with a complete GUI that aims to help players easily access their unique creature abilities and traits. Here’s a sample of the unique traits that players enjoy while playing various creatures:
-Sheep: You can produce colored wool and make sheep noises.
-Chicken: You can perform triple jumps, fall slowly to avoid fall damage, product chicken eggs, fit in small places, and most importantly, make chicken noises.
-Ghast: As a ghast, you can fly, shoot large fire balls, and make ghast noises. You’re also massive.
-Spider: Spiders are useful creatures because they can easily climb vertical walls and have a long distance web ability. They’re also two blocks wide, which can make it difficult to fit into certain small places.
-Bat: Bats fly, make bat noises, and hang from ceilings. More importantly, they also have powerful night vision and a vampire bat mode that allows them to drain life from enemies.
-Dragon: As a dragon, players can fly around, shoot massive fireballs, and make dragon noises. They’re also immune to fire damage.
To turn into any of these creatures, you simply need to craft a purple bone, which you can do by following the recipe below:
