Gender Mod


About - This mod has been around since April of 2011!

This mod has the option to change the player's gender or age. Each combination is complete with custom hurt sound effects. You might find a female zombie frolicking in the dark. Use this on your server to synchronize all the settings for each player across all connected clients!

Males: Just like normal Minecraft, but with the old hurt sounds!
Females: Are slightly smaller than males, have their own default texture and have their own hurt sound.
Children: Are smaller, have their own default texture based on gender and age, and have a higher sound pitch
Zombies: There are occasional female zombies that have the female model and their own texture

Gender uses core modding for enhanced compatibility by directly modifying the base code before Minecraft runs.

• Can I put this mod in a ModPack?
Yes. Please see the README file included inside the download file.

• Can I host this on my download website?

• Can I use this mod in a video?
Yes. Please link back to this page:

• Will other users of the mod see the mod features even though the server does not have it installed?
In order to see the effects this mod adds, you only need the client installed. The server is simply to sync the genders across all clients that have the mod.

• Does this mod require special skins?
The skin you set on your Minecraft Profile is not removed by this mod. If a user has a skin, their skin will show. If a user does not have a skin, the default player textures will show based on that players gender and age settings.

• Where did you get the idea for this mod?
This is the original mod that adds females/genders children/age into Minecraft. Gender was originally created this mod because I was annoyed at being a male caveman back in April of 2011. You can find more information here.
