Hello everyone! It's update time again!

I hope you guys are enjoying the mod! I love your support <3

As the name says, this is the Explosive Chickens mod! And that is just what it does! This mod adds one mob, and two items. These are listed below:

== NEW IN VERSION 1.5 ==

- Fixed a bug where tamed chickens would panic
- Fixed my crappy French translation XD
- Added ability to turn on and off chain reactions (in config)
- Added a handheld model for the chicken launcher (which can be toggled with config file)
- Re-wrote the update checker
- Added localization for update checker


Explosive Chickens: Spawns in Extreme Hills, Beach, Forest and Plains Biomes in packs of about 100. They have strange blue dots on their beaks. They also have the same amount of health as a regular chicken (2 Hearts). When you run into them, the explode. When you attack them, they explode. They drop chicken which explodes when you eat it. And they lay trick eggs (detailed below). You can also tame them like a wolf using gunpowder. They will follow you around and suicide-bomb your enemies. You can also make them stay by right-clicking them. Your chicken will not explode if you run into it or attack it.


Trick Egg: Laid by Explosive Chickens (detailed above). They explode when you right click with them.

Explosive Chicken Launcher: Crafted with 6 stone, 1 flint, 1 Iron Ingot and 1 piece of redstone (Shown in screenshots above). Uses Eggs and Trick Eggs as ammo and shoots chickens which explode on impact.

Trick Chicken: Like a trick egg, dropped by chickens and explode when eaten. Can also be cooked in a furnace.


It also includes a very simple config file where you can change certain settings and the IDs and Names of the Entities and Items. You can also change the death messages which appear on the screen.

For the client, the config file is located at:
/%appdata%(or Library/Application Support)/(.)minecraft/romejanic/Explosive Chickens/config.txt

For the server, the config file is located at:
/(server folder)/romejanic/Explosive Chickens/config.txt


- Chicken Pets don't always get tamed properly
- Gunpowder stacks may not decrease properly when taming chickens
- Chicken Launcher Model glitches when used with iChun's Morph mod (and probably with mobs too...)


Like I said in the update description, I have removed the ability to change
mob names, item names and death messages from the config file. I did
this because I have started using string localization files to make it easier
to expand the mod's audience. You can still change these however, by
opening the mod file with a program like WinRAR or 7zip and by editing the
files in the /assets/exchickens/lang/ folder. You can also change these with
resource packs.


As always, this mod requires the latest version of MinecraftForge to work.

1. Install MinecraftForge
2. Run the game once, then exit.
3. Download this mod
4. Drag the mod (ExChickens.jar) into your /mods folder
5. Run the game and enjoy!

1. Install MinecraftForge in a new folder
2. Run the server once, then type "stop" in the console
3. Download this mod
4. Drag the mod (ExChickens.jar) into the server's /mods folder
5. Run the server again
6. Follow the instructions above to install the mod in your client
7. Join the server and enjoy!

NOTE: Everyone who wants to join the server must follow the instructions for the client installation first!

That's about it! If you have a question about the mod, feel free to send me a private message! I am very happy for you to review the mod if it interests you, but you must include a link to this page!

This mod looks interesting, but I think it is only good for trolling your friends who leave their laptops open. The concept of everything blowing up around me (even without creepers) isnt very appealing. Sorry :)
