Spawn Variety - V1.1.0
This datapack will add some variety to hostile mobs and possibly a challenge to your minecraft world!
If you have any question or problem, please report it to me!

What it does
-Whenever a skeleton spawns with armor, (iron armor not included) it will have, not a bow, but an enchanted Axe based on the armor it is wearing. These skeletons are the Johnnys and are faster than normal skeletons. (and deal more damage).

-Whenever a Zombie with a shovel spawns, a horde will appear, 3 zombie villagers riding wolves seeking revenge.

How to install

And that's it, enjoy!

Thanks for your interest!
Unfortunately I'm short on time lately, so there shouldn't be any updates so soon...

Hey !
I want to set this mod in my multiplayer world.
But there's only Johnny spawning, and not hordes of other types of mobs..
Any issues with that ?

I run a server with this data pack and get no issue!
Did you get the latest version?
Keep in mind that the spawn rate ain't all that common, specially if you are playing on less than Hard difficulty!

Maybe you should do something with spiders, sometimes spiders spawn with a random potion effect, invisibility, strength, and speed are the ones that come to mind.

I''m still debating that with myself, but, I should add an option to deactivate them in the future, in case it is a bit too much.
