Update #35 : 01/19/2014 1:15:43 pm1/19/14

the Download mod had a broken download but it's fixed now. it caused that crash on startup

Version 8.1 Better Late Than Never : 10/28/2013 2:05:17 am10/28/13

Well if you had any shape shifter worlds - now you can upgrade them to 1.6.4 in preperation of the 1.7.2 update!

I'll get busy on 1.7.2 as soon as I can.

Version 8.0 The Horse : 08/18/2013 2:59:20 pm8/18/13

Another update, fixing the bugs from the pre-release and adding horse texture switching. The horse sucks I want to work on him and smooth out the edges.

Version 7.99 The Pre-Release : 07/29/2013 1:04:41 am7/29/13

In order to stop the world from ending, I give you Shape Shifter a few days early before I'm done polishing all the features and adding something new.....

Version 7.32 : 06/21/2013 10:50:48 pm6/21/13

Fixed herobrine not showing when you activate him

Version 7.31 : 05/12/2013 11:50:06 pm5/12/13

Fixed the bed textures that were wrong in 1.5.2 update

Version 7.3 : 05/12/2013 1:26:41 am5/12/13

Spent tonight getting 1.5.2 compatibility up and running. Enjoy!

Version 7.2 : 03/24/2013 1:59:49 am3/24/13

Bunch of fun things, and its 100% now since everything has an ability. I'll keep updating it although, some of the abilities are pretty weak.

Version 7.1 : 03/21/2013 9:40:06 pm3/21/13

1.5.1 compatibility

Version 7.0 : 03/16/2013 11:54:52 pm3/16/13

I bring you 1.5 compatibility

Also fixed a bug or two, one I can remember is Magmacube animation

Version 6.7 : 03/03/2013 2:08:20 am3/03/13

Magmacube ability added and several bugfix

Version 6.6 : 02/24/2013 1:13:49 am2/24/13

Slime ability added. Also I waited until after 12 to avoid the site glitch

Site glitch : 02/17/2013 1:05:13 am2/17/13

If i update the mod between 11 pm and 12 am CST the site thinks it was updated a day ago

Version 6.5 : 02/16/2013 12:46:51 am2/16/13

Added ambient sounds and foot steps, etc

Installer fix : 02/10/2013 7:06:22 pm2/10/13

Installer wasn't downloading latest properly so thats fixed now

Version 6.4 : 02/10/2013 12:46:16 am2/10/13

Ocelot ability !!

Version 6.3 : 02/07/2013 12:13:00 am2/07/13

Few new abilities added

Version 6.2 : 02/02/2013 4:43:23 am2/02/13

Pushing onward with a couple updates. Dragons because the people anonymously voted. And wolves because.

Version 6.1 : 01/29/2013 2:36:56 am1/29/13

GUI. That is all.

Version 6.0 : 01/26/2013 1:26:46 am1/26/13

Creepers now wreck havoc upon the lands. Plus your safe from your own explosions, and probably all others.

Version 5.91 : 01/24/2013 4:27:11 pm1/24/13

herobrine fix

Version 5.9 : 01/23/2013 4:27:04 pm1/23/13

herobrine and enderman

Version 5.8 : 01/19/2013 4:27:24 pm1/19/13

Lotsa bugs are fixed now, next i'll add more abilites. SMP will take longer.

Version 5.6 : 01/13/2013 4:28:18 pm1/13/13

Well we have done some extensive testing after the multiplayer update and found some regressions to fix. I documented those in the post and have started looking into them. Most of them are related to the added complexity behind multiplayer support.

But I got a new feature in, while you are in first person view there is a small icon that shows your current shape. It should be easy to find on the screen.

Version 5.5 : 01/11/2013 4:28:32 pm1/11/13

I stayed up way too late and got multiplayer working. There's probably bugs, let me know I will of course fix.

Is there still people who want to use shape shifter/morphing mods? If anyone wants, I can construct a mod (for 1.10.2) dedicated to survival shape shifting (since my other mod has a shape shifting feature). Just let me know how you want it to work:

  • How do you acquire morphings (killing entities, crafting special items from random or mob drop items)?
  • Which mobs do you want featured in this mod (all vanilla, I suppose).
  • Special abilities for certain mobs?
  • SCtester

Wow, that would be so awesome if you made this an actual mod! =D

Here's my thoughts on how it should work:
  • I think killing the animal would be a good way to acquire the morph
  • And yeah, I think all vanilla mobs would be great
  • Special abilities would be awesome! Things that would make sense for the mob, for example you could glide while being a chicken, you could breath in water if you were a squid, and you could fly if you were a bat.
  • Additionally, it'd be really cool if when you were in creative, you could instantly access all the morphs

Ok, thanks for instruction :)

I started developing the mod. I'll message you when it'll be done. The name of the mod will be Metamorph, for 1.10.2.

Hi All, I read the messages and I am trying to upgrade, but Mojang (Microsoft now I guess...) made such huge internal changes it's not very easy. I am still here and trying to think of a way to get it updated to 1.8 and also to get the Forge version better.

I was not able to download the mod at all because it came in a compressed zip file. I need it to download with the little coffee cup because that is the only way i know how to get it. But when i do accedentaly download it, the only thing i can do with it is press G.  And the zombie and a few other mobs just sink through the ground. I have wanted this mod for 4 years and i do not intend to loose my chance to be and Ender Dragon and other cool things. Can someone give me a video tutorial?

Dont worry, all mods have viruses, JUST KIDDING! All of the mods on Planet Minecraft are ANTI VIRUS! So they dont contain viruses. Even thought it may say that they may harm your computer, they wont.

I'm still alive everyone, hoping some official API comes out. It would be a huge undertaking to update this to latest version and it wouldn't be worth it unless I can port it to an official API. My son is almost 8 now - a lot has changed in our life and we don't play Minecraft as much. That said it would be very cool to update this I know it's been a popular mod and I don't want to abandon the community.
Can you please update it to 1.7.10

I'm trying to find time. We just don't play Minercraft anymore at home.
dude, how long for it to make a forge version? i know this isn't easy but can't you like mash shapeshifter z and x together in a way that it will be a shapeshifter mod with all the contents of shapeshifter z and the forge compatability of shapeshifter x?
anyway, this mod is similar to the morph mod. except in the morph mod you must kill the mob you want to become but in shapwshifter you only need to kill zombie , blaze and skeleton for the mob drops required
