Version: 2.4.1



This mod occasionally turns some monsters into a stronger version, boss-like. Its main purpose is to add a little diversity (and difficulty) to the combat aspect of the game.

Technically every monster spawning naturally in your world has a chance to become a boss, which hits harder, has more hit points and can possesses some immunities and abilities. Each boss can also have its own drop table. Of course all of this is configurable.

Moreover, they can notify you of their presence by sending you a message when you hit them, when they hit you, or after a certain amount of time if you're close enough. To make them distinguishable they can also have a flaming effect around them (the one used by mob spawners).

Almost everything is configurable, and if it isn't yet, it soon will be (at least I try)! (✿◠‿◠)

Configuration files

Likeaboss comes with different configuration files that are automatically generated with default values as an example.

  • config.yml
    This file controls global values that doesn't fit in other files; such as commands parameters, messages, state of the anti-grinding protection, and internal task intervals.
  • equipments.yml
    This is where you create equipments for your bosses. Any name can be used, they will be used as identifiers latter. When you create an equipment you'll have to provide a type (helmet, chestplate, leggings, boots or weapon) and a material ID. You also have the possibility to set a drop chance and to add multiple enchantments.
  • abilities.yml
    This one allows you to create different abilities for your bosses, like for equipments any name can be used. When you create an ability you'll have to provide certain fields depending on its type, the default file contains all available abilities with their needed parameters. You can create more than one ability per type as long as the name is different.
  • bosses.yml
    This one allows you to create different bosses. Any name can be used, this allows you to create multiple bosses per entity type. You can assign any created ability and equipment to any boss, you can also specify an assignation chance for each of the equipments and abilities. Bosses can also have their own drop table and immunities.
  • worldname.yml
    World files are generated only if the previous ones aren't, but you can create them yourself. This is where you add bosses to a world. You can also add some global abilities, immunities (overridden by bosses') and drops that will be used by each boss on this world.
