Better Animal Models

Cyber's Better Animal Models


Better animals without the bells and whistles!



Have you ever looked at the common pigs, chickens, cows, etc, then looked at the horse? You may have noticed a clear difference in design, and how much better the horse looked. As you know, something similar happened in 1.13, but in reverse. So the question is, why make the horse worst when you could make the other animals better? This mod aims to do just that. This mod is very simple in its goal--better animal models but without adding genders, breeds, special care, etc., as some of us simply want the vanilla animals to look a bit better.



As of now, the mod adds better models for the following mobs:

  • Chickens
  • Cows and Mooshrooms
  • Sheep
  • Pigs
  • Spiders/Cave Spiders
  • Silverfish
  • Wolves
  • Polar Bears
  • Mod Compat: PrimalCore (Bears, Ovis Atre, Steppe Wolf), Sophisticated Wolves (All Wolves)


Since this mod is still very new, many things are missing and many more are planned, here's just a taste of what's to come:

  • Better models for all "animal" like mobs, both hostile and friendly.
  • Mod support
  • ???

NOTE: As of version 2.0, BA no longer replaces vanilla animals with its own mobs, instead simply overwriting their models. This means updating from any pre-2.0 version will make you lose your animals.


Feel free to post any suggestions, ideas, tweaks, down below.


Yes, this mod can be included in any modpack, as long as the modpack is distributed for free and credit is given.
