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. Version 2 adds Daleks, Empty Children, Sontarans (and Strax), Silurians, Zygons and Vashta Nerada!

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!

Dalek Information

Daleks are skeletons disguised as retextured snowmen. They come in different colours, but mostly spawn in their typical bronze colour. Exterminate!

Empty Children

Empty Children spawn anytime, and are of course child size. If you are killed by an Empty Child you get a gas mask applied to your head when you respawn that you can't remove for 30 seconds.


Only spawn underground in caves. Watch out for their Silurian guns!


Sontarans will try to kill you (as any good Sontaran should). If you manage to right-click a Sontaran with a 4 minute Weakness Potion before he kills you, he will transform into Strax.


If you right-click Strax he'll talk to you, and if you right-click him with an empty bucket, you'll be able to milk him. Yum, yum Sontaran lactic fluid :) Be careful not to anger him though as he'll go rabid on you and let his killer Sontaran instincts get the better of him!

Vashta Nerada

Vashta Nerada have a random (configurable) chance of spawning when a bookshelf is broken, say "Hey who turned out the lights?" and of course try to eat you!


Zygons don't do much yet (except try to kill you), but they look pretty cool. Watch this space...

    /twas [monster type]

    Fixed in v2.0.10.

    Thanks for the tip my friend!... it's fixed. I had the right version of LibsDisguises (made sure I had the updated version for all plugins), but I forgot to download ProtocolLib lol. It's all working fine now. Thanks again :)

    @Kaijudo11: Go

    Probably not enabled due to the fact that you have not installed / or have an outdated version of LibsDisguises and / or ProtocolLib

    OK so I think I found out why none of the Doctor Who monsters are spawning. I notice that the plugin isn't creating a config folder. I'm using the latest version of the minecraft client, is that the reason why?... or should that not be a problem. Also I've downloaded the weeping angels plug in again just in case there was a problem with the one I had. Every other plugin that needs to create a config folder; dose so, but for some reason the weep angels won't.

    OK I'm going to try that now. Thanks :)

    I've been using this mod for almost a year now and it worked great. I took a little break from minecraft and I deiced to come back to it and update my Doctor Who server, but some reason none of the monsters spawning in my world. It's a normal world and I'm only using the plugins suggested for the Tardis mod. So what m I doing wrong?

    Thanks for the suggestions on how to make the video better. I have to agree with the flat world slimes are far too loud. I will rerecord it when I get the time.

    I've been away for a few days and i posted the video before i left here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EHnaTLzuPY&list=UUUxwYaHkJV-ZH-E0GQ1yx5g

    @NekoKalil: Go

    Strax - click a Sontaran with a Weakness 4 potion (version 2.0.2 adds the ability to spawn him via command)

    Daleks with pumpkin heads - I don't think you have the resource pack installed properly

    Video - IMO (feel free to tell me to FOff) needs a bit of editing, it's too long, there's too much background noise and I would suggest not doing it in a flat world with slimes. Plus I don't get why you were manually equipping yourself with the armour, just use /twad [MONSTER] on...
