Giants That Spawn Naturally

This plugin takes direct inspiration from FatMarleys' plugin FatGiants, which in turn was inspired by NaturalGiants. This plugin was originally written by rmh4209, and continued on by pkt77, and is now in the hands of Mammothskier.

SourceDev Builds


The Giants Plugin can naturally spawn Giants that have 8 Configurable attack mechanisms Configurable Health, Experience, Drops, and Spawn in configurable Worlds and Biomes. β€œThe worst thing you can say about homework is that it is too hard. The worst thing you can say about a game is it's too easy.”

    Not currently. Testing a build that supports it now. If it works I will upload it.

    Is there a way to add custom names/lore to drops?

    @marubal21: Go

    The solution is to backup your config files, delete giant.yml, slime.yml, and magmacube.yml. Once deleted restart the server and add your settings back into the files you deleted.

    I just installed Bleeding Edge Build#73 for Giants, and the moment a giant spawns console begins to get spammed with the following errors:

    @marubal21: Go

    Bleeding edge builds represent the newest updates and basic features work. Stable builds are considered to be ready to be released to bukkit dev. The choice of which to use is yours and I can't decide that for you.

    @sakura_blades: Go

    This project has not been abandoned, there are several recent code updates, as well as new Dev builds. I have not been releasing to bukkit simply because i believe bukkit is mostly dead. Once i see some more life in the bukkit project, i will update this page.

    As for giants spawn rates acting odly, i do not know what you mean, could you elaborate?

    Thanks, Mammothskier

    Has this been abandoned? There hasn't been updates in some time and the page here seems awfully dead.
    There were bugs with some of the Giant mob options last I checked, and I know the Giant spawn rates are still acting oddly..

    @godgodgodgo: Go

    There is configurable health. Just look through the configuration folders.

    Could you add configurable health?
