DarkHorse - Spawn and ride zombie and skeleton horses!

Give a diamond on PlanetMinecraft

What is it?

DarkHorse is a simple, lightweight plugin that lets you spawn all types of rideable beasts in Minecraft, INCLUDING the "darker" horses in the game. That's right - zombie and skeleton horses! Using a simple set of commands, you can spawn in these mobs immediately and shock people with the unnatural horses!

And now, not only can you spawn all the types of horses, you can even ride them too! Spawn a tamed horse, right-click with a saddle, and travel through the countryside on your noble undead steed!

Enjoy DarkHorse? It would help me greatly if you'd donate a few extra dollars for developing the plugin! I'm a student, so I don't have much time or money, and any sized contribution would be more than welcome. :)

    As far as I know, there aren't any additional patterns for these types of horses.

    A curiosity... Does this mod allow you to spawn Undead/Skeleton with patterns, as featured in your banner? That sooty skeletal horse is kind of cool. :)

    @DmNova: Go

    Ideally, I'd prefer to go config-less, but I have to have a way for the auto-update functionality to be disabled.

    @FingersMeller: Go

    Leads are something that currently are not coded into Minecraft for the skeleton and zombie horses. I have been experimenting with whether I can add it in myself, but my attempts so far have been unsuccessful.

    I was wondering why I am not able to lead the skeleton horse with a rope/lead?

    @alanthya: Go

    Have you ensured you've done your permissions correctly? Have you made sure it's not players or admins who are spawning them? My code has 0% to do with any spawning mechanisms, so it is quite literally impossible for my plugin to be the only cause. Someone may have even set up looping command blocks with the commands. All my code handles right now is spawning individual horses, not on a mass level.

    I had an admin use v1.1 and now there's skelehorses all over the world....
