Minecraft - Creeper Hive 01 by UXD Minecraft - Creeper Hive 01 by UXD
OUT OF DATE: Please see below for more up-to-date entries!

While watching nature documentaries, I learnt of a species of termite that has suicide bombers that defend the nest. This made me think about our favourite mob on Minecraft, the Creeper. This lead me to think about how the Creeper could be apart of a similar species, with different versions of "Creeper" that would make a colony.

From the right:

Worker
A very small and quick worker drone, scurries around the hive tending to the needs of the higher ranks. Will sometimes pick up blocks to move elsewhere. When attacked, they swarm around the enemy, preventing it from moving and pushing it about. While hardly threading as they do no damage, they are very dangerous if they manage to trap you when a Creeper or Solider is approaching.

Creeper
What is there to be said? Big, green and likes to send your insides in to the horizon. The only member of the "Creeper" family that explodes, as it sees humans as trespassers on their territory. The entire species is named after the "Creeper" as it is the most common to be sighted, as the other members very rarely leave the hive. I included the Creeper to show scale with the other mobs.

Soldier
The Guards of the Creeper Hive, these giants tower over the workers that scurry under it. Lacking the explosive power that Creepers have, it instead decides to take down its foes with powerful charges and stomping attacks. It can break through Dirt, Sand and Wood blocks.

Still trying to break out of my Art Block :la:

If this idea got fleshed out to the point of looking like your animation with the baby creeper, where the workers are all organized and moving blocks like a small hive "society" that'd be amazing!

That was the whole idea behind the animation, I've been developing that idea over the last year :)

There is a prototype being demo'd here [link]

But I would like to flesh out the mod more before we start developing it further

You didn't need to send me the link, I don't play Minecraft as much as I used to, and it's a pain in the :iconbuttplz: to get a mod into your game...

If this is a mod... The war in my sever would have been over a long time ago...*shudder* Creepers being used by Griefers....

Or make it more challenging for the Templars.

do workers explode?

No, the number of Workers that would appear would destroy the whole map, but I think to give them all exploding abilities would take away from what makes the Creeper so special

true....Best go with "strength in numbers" over "strength in self sacrifice".

Would the Workers be able to duck down while holding a block so they appear to be just a regular block?

Looking at the Worker, I just like the idea of digging at a dirt block and then all of a sudden a Worker popping out of the ground with the block on its head and just scurrying off from ya.
