Inspired by: TARDIS Ticket #530 - Weeping Angels

This plugin tranforms skeletons into terrifying Weeping Angels (as seen on Doctor Who), zombies into Cybermen and Pig Zombies into angry Ice Warriors.

Resource Pack


NOTE as of version 1.2.3 TARDISWeepingAngels requires the Custom Item textures mod to be installed (via MCPatcher), and the new TARDISWeepingAngels-MCP resource pack!


  • Weeping Angels, Cybermen and Ice Warriors!

For each monster:

  • Configurable spawn rate
  • Configurable drop on death
  • Only spawn them in the worlds you want


  • Configurable killing item
  • Can be frozen in place for a configurable time
  • Configurable TARDIS Key stealing


  • Can upgrade villagers and players

Weeping Angel Information

Weeping Angels only spawn at night in loaded chunks. They spawn with grey leather armour and a water lily helmet (their wings).

Weeping Angels can only be killed with the configured weapon - by default a DIAMOND_PICKAXE - hitting them with anything else has no effect. When they die they drop random amounts (1-3) of the configured items (STONE and COBBLESTONE by default), and very rarely a skull.

The angels move pretty fast, but you can freeze them in place by looking at them and quickly pressing the sneak key. Better arm yourself or flee quickly though, as they'll be after you again in a snap - and if they touch you, you'll be teleported away to a random location. If the TARDIS plugin is also installed (if it isn't WHY NOT?), your TARDIS Key will be stolen.

Cybermen Information

Cybermen can spawn at anytime. They spawn with iron armour.

If configured, Cybermen will upgrade villagers and players when they have killed them (a new Cyberman) spawns in their place. If the upgraded entity was a player, the new Cyberman displays the player's name above its head.

Ice Warrior Information

Ice Warriors are really angry. They can spawn at anytime, but only spawn in snowy, icy or cold biomes. They carry an ice dagger. Did I mention they're angry!

    Added Vashta Nerada to the development build tonight, they have a random (configurable) chance of spawning when a bookshelf is broken, and say "Hey who turned out the lights?".

    Disguised as a Vashta Nerada

    @junkerprime: Go

    All skeletons will have an Angel head, that's the only way that it works at all, as the angel 'helmet' is actually the wing... as apposed to a Cyberman where its helmet covers the whole of the Zombie head.

    I have updated the skeleton and removed all angel textures (except for the head) in later versions of the TWA resource pack (though I'm currently in the middle of adding more monsters and the skeleton texture needs some more work), you probably need to update the pack.

    Latest files are here: https://github.com/eccentricdevotion/TARDISWeepingAngels-Resource-Pack - follow the instructions in the README.

    Kind of stuck trying to figure this out. If I run with the default vanilla resourcepack and all the TARDIS packs, every skeleton receives the weeping angel skin. The actual angels are the only ones that get a wing. Kind of hard to tell apart.

    If I run a custom resource pack with random mobs activated, I get mixed results. Angels with skeleton heads always. and Skeletons randomly get the angel body's without the wings.

    I've tried shifting the order of my resource packs, as well as disabling and enabling random mobs in mcpatcher, I can never get the desired result... angels that look like angels with skeletons that look like skeletons.

    On a side note.. cybermen and zombies always look correct. I must be doing somethign right.

    I got it to work,

    I found out that you can do it by setting the monster spawn to true and adjusting the spawn rate to 0 in the config file.

    So now the Evil Beings of Doctor Who can spawn and the minecraft ones don't, unless of course you manually place a egg in creative....

    @X00dis: Go

    TWA should ignore MV settings, again it's not something I've actually tried

    /killall [mob type] <radius> [world] command (Essentials plugin) should get rid of unwanted mobs

    @eccentricnz: Go

    Didn't work. I think MV is messing it up. It used to be with MV 2.4 if you set the world as false for monsters, the ones that had already spawned were "despawned" 2.5 doesn't seem to do that. I am worried that if I go into the settings and false everything and set the spawnrate to 0, that the Angels mod's monsters wont spawn at all. Or is it separate, meaning that the angels dont rely on what MV has in its settings.

    I will try it and let you know what happens

    I haven't tried it, but /gamerule doMobSpawning False might work?

    Question: whats the best way to set up a server that only the Whovian Mobs spawn and not the vanilla monsters. Im thinking something with multiverse but not 100% sure
