Giants That Spawn Naturally


This plugin takes direct inspiration from FatMarleys' plugin FatGiants, which in turn was inspired by NaturalGiants. This plugin also takes inspiration from NodinChan's MobJockeys.


This plugin was originally written by rmh4209, continued on by pkt77, and is now in the hands of Mammothskier.

    The latest bleeding edge build supports custom item lore and item drops. Please make sure to reset your config files, as is needed on all major updates.

    @marubal21: Go

    The lightning attack is triggered right when the giant targets the player. It should only do the attack once per kill, unless the player is out of the giants range, causing it to lose interest and then target the player again, firing the lightning attack again.

    It would be simple enough to add a configuration option for this.

    @Mammothskier: Go

    ok thanks for the reply.

    Players have said that the lighting attack gets activated very often, is there a way to control the rate of attack from the giants.

    Also, i had one player mention that their Bow broke when hit my the lighting, not even sure it might be related to Giants, but thought i'd mention it nonetheless.

    @marubal21: Go

    Sorry for a slow response. Currently, each has a chance to drop, depending on the rarety you have set.

    @Mammothskier: Go

    I reset the config file as suggested everything seems to be working good. Haven't seen an error yet.

    For now, i just have giants spawning rarely with rare diamond drops. Waiting on the newer drop system to add custom drops.

    Question: if i have multiple drops setup, do they each have that set chance to drop, or will only one drop from the list per kill?
