How to get a pet #

Step 1 – Find the mob you want #

Find a mob that is tameable is the easiest step. All mobtypes are tamable except Shulkers because they can’t move.

Step 2 – Meeting the Requirements #

This can be the hardest part but how hard it really will depends on the configuration of the Server. Every pet-Type has a setting called LeashFlags that sets the requirements needed for the pet-Type to become a pet.

Step 3 – Taking mob on a lead #

When Step 1 & 2 are done you just have to hit (attack) your target with the LeashItem (Lead by default). After hitting your target it will convert from a normal mob into a pet and you will see a message like this:

You took a pet on a lead, it will be a good pet.

Using the Lead as a weapon is required to perform the actual act of taming. Putting the mob on the lead/rope will do nothing towards taming your new pet.

Hunger-System #

With the Hunger-System is based on saturation. The saturation is a value between 1 and 100, where 100 is the best and 1 is the worst. After a period of time (can be set with the MyPet.HungerSystem.Time setting) the saturation decreases and affects other stats of your pet.

Hitpoints on respawn #

When a pet respawns it won’t have full hitpoints when the Saturation is below 90. This table shows how much the saturation affects the hitpoints on respawn:

Hunger-PointsHitpoints on respawn
100-91full Hitpoints
90-8190% of max. Hitpoints
80-7180% of max. Hitpoints
70-6170% of max. Hitpoints
60-5160% of max. Hitpoints
50-4150% of max. Hitpoints
40-3140% of max. Hitpoints
30-2130% of max. Hitpoints
20-1120% of max. Hitpoints
10-210% of max. Hitpoints
11 Hitpoint

Skills Affected By Hunger #

Beacon #

The lower the saturation the less is the range of the beacon effect.

Ride #

The lower the saturation the slower your pet will run when you ride it.

How can I equip my Zombie/Skeleton/PigZombie? #

Just right-click your pet with the item you want them to wear while sneaking. To remove the equipment just right-click your pet with shears while sneaking. $ Weapons/Armor are only visually and have no effect on the pet $

This applies to Horses, Donkeys, Enderman and Iron-Golems. The same method is used to handle equipping/unequipping any pet with an item.

How can I control my pet while riding it? #

Riding a pet is like riding a horse with a saddle.

How can I fly my pet? #

  1. The pet need the ride skill
  2. The fly flag must be enabled by the skilltree
  3. Mount your pet
  4. Press space

Can I make my Pet Sit/Stay? #

Yes, you can make your pet stay by Shift + Right Click All pets can be told to Stay, not just the standard tame-able mobs such as Cats and Wolves.

Why can’t the pets attack anything? #

Your pet does not have Damage or Range skill choose a skill tree with one of those in.
