Can you use this mod to create people/ citizens in a world, like a city, or is there another mod or something that has tons of people/ citizens in a world?
Because I am trying to to have a real life based game, I have mods for, cars, guns, etc, and a city map, but when I loaded up the world, there wasn't any npcs, or citizens, so
what should I do? can you please help me?
You have to create them using an NPC Wand.

If you want to reuse them save them using a mob cloner.

If you are editing the npc, On the display tab it says Texture or something like that. If you click that it changes to Player.
Type your name in the box and when you get out of editing, it will be your skin
this is my favorite mod, but it really needs an update to 1.9 please update T_T
I've downloaded the mod and everything's working fine, but I can't add my own custom skins?? I've Googled but all the results say things about folders and a customnpc folder under the .minecraft one, but I don't have that folder?? Did I install something wrong?

This is my favorite mod!!! Thanks!!!
**BUGS** (Maybe) I found a problem. When I click other box to change stats after changing minimal time delay (arrow-shooting), the game's like shutting down itself. I think it's not crash because there was a warning like "Game is shutting down". Love this mod!

By the way, how do I control the NPC I am riding?
Please Update to 1.9 cause it would be really fun to have that with that version :)

Hoping for some help here, Did javascript in my comp. programming class in Highschool 8 years ago so im a little LOST now. Im trying to create a script that will move a Shopkeeper NPC from Position 1 (X,Y,Z) to Position 2 (X,Y,Z) after the time is about 10700 and then back when the time is about 500 (as defined by var time = world.getTIme % 24000). Can anyone help me out? im sure this is WAAAY WRONG but so far im getting several non-functioning and USELESS scripts that either crash the NPC and game or just do NOTHING.

Are all of your mods the version of forge that your using? If not then you'll have to delete those mods. If so, I don't know what to tell you.

Custom NPCs can be used with other mods, but not all mods are compatible. Enviromine is not compatible while MrCrayFish's Furniture Mod is. Which mods were you trying to use with it?
To many to count...

  • Wertologist
  • Level 36
  • Artisan Architect
  • November 8, 2015, 9:32 pm
Did you set the distance you wanted them to wander? Also, give them a moment. They don't move right away. They may take a second or two to "feel" like moving.

Also, are you that YouTube guy who talks about older games? You just a fan of that guy? Or is it you just happen to have the same/similar name?
  • YuriofWind11
  • Level 10
  • Journeyman Explorer
  • November 13, 2015, 12:28 pm
Ive set them to high levels,I wait forever and they still don't move.And as for the name that's HONESTLY a coincidence due to a character I made who happened to control wind,though I do happen to be a fan of thye youtuber.

In case it happens again, make sure you don't hit "Freeze all" when you use the wand in the air. That may have caused them to not move.

Also, can someone please tell me how to make an NPC retreat from me? Thanks!
  • Wertologist
  • Level 36
  • Artisan Architect
  • November 8, 2015, 9:38 pm
You have to make sure that NPC is set to a hostile faction. By default, I think "Agressive" is hostile and I think you can attack "Neutral". If you created a custom faction, you need to make it hate you. A simple way to do that is make a simple Quest and have the outcome give -1000(or anything higher) against that faction and they should attack you(provided you set that specific NPC to attack when an enemy faction is spotted)

To make it retreat, go to the AI tab and there should be something that says "On sight" or "Sighted"(should be in the left side. The default is "Retaliate, but another option is "Retreat". Set it to that and if you wander within its sight range, it will run.

How do you make npc's spawn naturally through out your world.
  • Wertologist
  • Level 36
  • Artisan Architect
  • October 5, 2015, 11:27 pm
Natural spawn is bugged. If you try using it, the selected NPCs will spawn everywhere at an extreme rate no matter how you set it. Don't use it. Hopefully it will be fixed in a future update.
Hey How do you make NPC attack mobs
  • TheNinja03

  • Artisan Ninja
  • September 2, 2015, 10:08 am
Give your NPC the job of a guard, then do edit. Then you could select the mobs that the npc could attack.
