Installation Instructions (Including Mac)

On Windows:

  2. Doubleclick .minecraft
  3. Doubleclick versions

  4. Make a copy of 1.6.4
  5. Rename it to 1.6.4-ssz
  6. Doubleclick 1.6.4-ssz
  7. Rename 1.6.4.jar to 1.6.4-ssz.jar
  8. Rename 1.6.4.json to 1.6.4-ssz.json
  9. Mod 1.6.4-ssz.jar by:
  10. Opening 1.6.4-ssz.jar with a program such as 7-zip
  11. Delete folder META-INF
  12. Drag and Drop contents of ShapeShifterZ81.zip to 1.6.4-ssz.jar
  13. Open 1.6.4-ssz.json with a text editor such as notepad.exe
  14. Edit the 2nd line to say"id": "1.6.4-ssz"
  15. Done!

I don't know if these still work in 1.6.4 but I think MCPatcher is still a good bet for both PC and MAC.

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.

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

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

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.

Apprentice Archer
February 24, 2014, 2:19 pm

lol i love this mod but there are other things i like about the other mod morph though.


1: make it more sense, like endermen shapeshifter gets hurt in the rain, water, and hostile shapeshifters don't get hurt by other real hostile mobs ect.

2: make it so you don't need a special bone to make special moves, like, you can tele as an enderman with middle click, or as a ghast, hold a flame charge to shoot unlimited fireballs

3: have creeper shapeshifters an ability to "self destruct" and kill you. (it's already implemented but you don't die by the self-destruct, remind me if you do cus i dont play this often)

4: spit ender-acid, or just green potion particles for acid that enderdragon shapeshifts can shoot, instead of fire. (console version reference)

5: Be able to make your own trades as a villager shapeshift. (SMP only)

6: control your own pack as a wolf shapeshift, with an untamed pack! (can be skipped, this is difficult)

7: allow silverfish shapeshifts to hide in stone-related blocks

8: wither shapeshift shoot unlimited wither heads with wither skeleton skull?

9: squids breathe underwater and see underwater :D

10: unlimited arrows to shoot as skeleton, shaders for certain mob visions, like upcoming creeper and spider vision, able to infect other villagers as a zombie shapeshift, being able to become a zombie yourself by being killed by a zombie, just think of those possibilities waiting.

These are only suggestions.

Level 84
Elite Enderman
February 26, 2014, 6:04 am

The morph mod is built by somebody who apparnetly has WAYYY more free time than myself.

Some of the suggestions already exist, for example Skeletons do have infnite arrows. And squids can breath underwater.

And the creeper being explosion proof is by-design, I wanted to make a over powerful mod to make it fun!

I'm trying my best to create time to update and continue work on this mod, but the recent 1.7.4 update cause us to have to remake mods from scratch so it's not so fun. :(

Why are the Windows Installation instructions all crossed out? Are they obsolete and if so what (and where) are the replacement instructions? edit: I followed the crossed out instructions. While the game does not crash, the mod is not available either, in that the shape-shifter bones are not available in creative mode.

Just use MCPATCHER!!! There are only 4 steps when using mcpatcher. First dowload mcpatcher and this mod. Run mcpatcher. Click load mod then select the shape shifter mod that is on your desktop. Then click the Huge patch button. make sure you have it on the 1.6.4 update. I have done this and It worked on 3 different computers. This mod even somethimes works on 1.7.4. If you can not ffind out how to use MCPATCHER then just search it on youtube, because it is very easy and simple to use
