Mob Head Drops Data Pack for Minecraft 1.13


Mob Head Drops Data Pack will allow mobs to drop their heads on Minecraft 1.13 Single or Multiplayer Server. This data pack changes the mobs’ loot tables and adds a chance to obtain their heads. It also has functions to detect different variations of mobs that usually share the same loot table. The functions will run only when a new mob with variant spawns (Different types of Horse, Cats, Parrots, etc.), it will set the right loot table and nothing will run anymore. Additionally, this data pack will change the Shulker‘s loot table to drop two shulker shells as the minimum.

This pack is based on a version of Xisumavoid’s More Mob Meads made by Carl Poole.

This data pack currently works in Minecraft 1.13 and the code is available on GitHub. This code will continue to be updated and maintained there so be sure to follow MadCat on GitHub to make sure you’re getting all the latest updates.

For more insight into this data pack, watch the video.

Mobs by Rarity

The following is an extract of my loot changer script, it classifies all the mobs to a rarity level to later iterate and change their loot tables.

rares = [“enderman”,”zombie_pigman”,”blaze” ]
lows = [“cow”,”chicken”,”sheep”,”slime”,”cave_spider”,”drowned”, “jebsheep”,”pig”,”mushroom_cow”,”cod”,”tropical_fish”,”salmon”,
“guardian”,”iron_golem”,”spider”,”squid”,”witch”] mids = [“silverfish”,”magma_cube”,”skeleton_horse”,”ghast”,”husk”,”stray”,”villager”,”pufferfish”,”vex”,”bat”,”phantom”] midhighs = [“turtle”,”snow_golem”,”wolf”,”dolphin”,”mule”,”chargedcreeper”,”endermite”,”ender_dragon”] highs = [“vindicator”,”evoker”,”shulker”,”wither”, “donkey”] superhighs = [“polar_bear”,”zombie_horse”, “elder_guardian”]

#More Mobs (Variations)
colored sheep = low_chance
zombie villagers = mid_chance
cats,horse,llama,parrot,rabit = midhigh_chance
