Mob Orbs


Catch mobs and spawn them anywhere else.

  • No NBT-Data will be copied all entity specific data like health, trades / professions, horse speed and jump hight or the color of sheep will be lost.

  • Endermen can't be caught, because you can't hit them.
  • Cod, Salmon, Puffer- and Tropical Fish can't be caught, since you can use a water bucket on them.
  • Catching Ender Dragons and Wither is disabled by default, see below on how to enable it.
  • I kept the amount of commands and @e selectors executed per tick as low as possible so you should be able to use this data pack on your multiplayer servers without performance issues, but I haven't tested with many players yet since my server isn't really populated right now.

How to install
1. Drop the moborbs.zip into the "datapacks" folder of your minecraft world.
2. Load your savegame or, if your world is loaded, "/reload" your game.
How to craft
Put an Eye of Ender, two Iron Igots and two Diamonds into the Crafting Table as shown below.

[DataPack][1.14+] Mob Orbs - catch and spawn mobs in survival Minecraft Data Pack

You'll get a Knowledge Book, that will be instantly swapped for an empty Morb.
How to use
1. Throw an empty Morb at a mob to catch it.
2. Throw a Morb with a mob in it to summon a new mob of that type.
How to enable Morbs for Wither and Ender Dragons
1. Extract the zip-file into a new folder in your worlds "datapacks" directory.
2. Navigate to "data\morbs\functions" and open "catch_mob.mcfunction" in an editor
3. Remove the # on the following two lines in that file:
#execute if entity @s[type=ender_dragon] at @s run function morbs:catch/ender_dragon#execute if entity @s[type=wither] at @s run function morbs:catch/wither4. Save the file. ;)
5. Just delete the downloaded zip-file, you don't have to zip the data pack again,
6. If your world is loaded "/reload" your game.

Note: You can dis-/reenable all mob types this way, but existing Morbs will not be removed and still
summon corresponding mobs when used.
How to uninstall
1. run the following command as op
/function morbs:uninstall
2. Remove the moborbs.zip from the "datapacks" folder of your world.
3. "/reload" your game.

Update #4 - V1.4 : 12/13/2019 9:11:19 amDec 13th, 2019

  • Now working with bees! (Minecraft V1.15)
  • The receipt for the Morb/Knowledge book will no longer show up in the receipt book, this is a side effect on an internal improvement on how crafting is handled. This enables the use of the "Knowledge book" trick in any number of data packs or for multiple Items in one pack.

One of the 1.14 updates has broken the datapack by requiring lore to be specified via JSON. Here is a fixed version: https://github.com/budak7273/FixMorbs/releases/tag/v1.0 Please let me know if you want me to take this down.

It was really useful for the player of my server. Though it still needs to save villager profession. Will it still work on 1.14?

Sorry I was very busy lately.
The data pack works now on 1.14 including the new mobs added to the game.

This data pack opens so many possibility to the gameplay! Let me try it for a few days so I can give you some feedback. Do you mind if I try it on my personal SMP server?

Of course I don't, go ahead.
Also reports on the performance with a lot of players online would be much appreciated.

Over a thousand views and a hundred downloads in and not a single comment. Honestly I'm a little disappointed, but I think at least that means it's working. Otherwise the comments would be full of complaints I guess.

I'm currently working on another data pack where I use huge explosions to make your life more easy. Stay tuned, as my quest of simplifying the most tedious tasks in the game continues.

I have uploaded a first prototype of the new data pack, that allows you to easily clear out a perimeter for your mob farms.
