Welcome to DispBreed V2!

I made this datapack to automize cow breeding, and thought I would share it with the world :)

Supported animals:

  • Cows
  • Mooshrooms
  • Sheep
  • Pigs
  • Cats

More will be added soon!

How to Use:

It is as intuitive and simple as it seems! Just place a breedable mob in front of a dispenser, and something to breed with in the latter, and when a player powers the dispenser, the entity will go into breeding mode. Be sure to have another entity nearby that is ready to show some love and affection!

Possible Use Case:

In the pictures I have added, you can see a sort of cow slaughtering factory. Cows automatically breed calves, and those will be picked up by a minecart system. Then the calves gets a place to grow up, and when that is done, they are carried to the execution chamber.

I thought this was a really neat thing to be able to do, and in theory, this would allow for large amounts of automized beef production :)

Known issues:
  • Throwing an item in front of a dispenser when a breedable mob is nearby, will automatically remove the item, and force the nearby entity to go into breeding mode

Have fun!

Hey there!
I would really like to help you out by giving you a hand in troubleshooting :)

1. Check that the datapack is loaded into minecraft by typing /datapack list in the chat. If it is not shown in green text, the datapack might be installed incorrectly.

If the datapack is indeed installed correctly, check the following

2. Is the dispenser loaded with e.g. wheat, and is it able to put two different cows into "loveMode"?

If this is true, try the following

3. Put a distance of at least 3 blocks between you and the dispenser, so that there is not chance of picking up the wheat when it is dispensed.

Please write back so that I know if it worked or not!

Regards, Frikk :)
