    NaturalGiants - Make giants spawn naturally
    Version: v1.30

    As per the title, this plugin makes it so giants will spawn naturally along with other mobs.
    Giants are set to be more rare, and by default will only spawn 5% of the time compared to other mobs. This option, along with other options, can be changed within the configuration file. Giants additionally will only spawn in the dark / at night.

    Download: (1.30)

    Config Information: (Modified within
    spawnrate - By default, set at 5%. This will make 5% of monsters spawned as giants. Maximum value is 100.
    health - How much health a giant has. By default set at 200.
    drop - What item giants drop upon being killed. By default set to drop 64 bones (item #352)
    fireattack - Determines if the giants deal a fire attack upon targeting a player. Set it to "0" to disable the attack.


    Version 1.3
    • Fixed entity tracking issues.
    Version 1.2
    • Private release.
    Version 1.1
    • Added configuration file, with the ability to configure the giants spawn rate, health, what items they drop, and if they deal a fire attack.
    Version 1.0
    • First release.
    Let me know if you have any questions, or find any problems.

    Alright man. Appreciated. I don't mind messy code; I'd just like to screw around with it some.

    What is the normal default health of giants? I am not sure, but I think that setting the health is making the giants not send their death events to another plugin. I am trying to get help over there as well, but this is the interaction between two plugins.

    Do these spawn during the day as well as the night?

    Giants have a chance of spawning everytime a hostile mob spawn, so no.

    Dude :-P You have no idea how awesome this plugin is to be quite honest. Would there be a way to make a configurable option to set giants to spawn in the day as well? a.k.a. not only on mob spawn chances, but on animal spawn chances ?

    What if giant will spawn underground? :D

    Then it will probably get stuck on the walls and take damage.

    Alright, I am trying to figure something out... For some reason, when the giants die, they just disappear, no puff of smoke, anything. When this happens, no death event is sent to other plugins (such as monster hunt, or mob loot plugins). I can't seem to get it to pass through. Is this a bug in the mod?

    I have a challenge for the plugin author. Become the first plugin to let monsters spawn in skyworlds. If this plugin supported worlds, giants would be the second entity in skyworlds, after chickens. It's not hard to take it another step and have a monster control plugin that can add monsters to a world that don't belong there. So far, I haven't seem a plugin that can put cows or Zombies into Skyworld. but I will donate to the first person who gets that working!

    do these ginats actually dmage you? for me all they do is catch on fire when i go near them
  12. Offline


    Them catching in fire means they are attempting to use their fire-attack on you. If you set that to zero or you are godmode, then they will not do anything to you.

    I experienced the same with MonsterHunt and CookieMonster. I don't get the rewards for killing giants in all those other mods :/

    thanks dude oh and is there a way to change what they drop
  15. Offline


    Ah, well, thanks for letting me know it's not just me. I am wondering if there is something I have to set to get them to work correctly? I have been able to get them to die correctly a few times, but it is rare.

    I can confirm now that it is an issue with this plugin.
    I used the MakeEmSpawn plugin to spawn a Giant and the death event didn't get passed.
    After that I disabled NaturalGiants and spawned a Giant again, this time the death event got passed.

    I would love to see you fix this issue because scaring my players with Giants and rewarding them for killing them is worth a lot :)

    Yea i use ecoCreature and it doesnt work passing either...

    Can Dev post the source if this is no longer being updated? Cant really reward players for killing giants with static loot...
  18. Is it possible to make the giants have more than 200 health??

    It seems like at 1% chance of spawning, they spawn more than I'd like. And they don't seem to spawn at any less than 1%.

    hilarious and wonderful..but are they supposed to randomly catch fire?

    In the sun like normal zombies?

    I jsut figuered out that the death event of giants get passed if you kill it indirectly.

    For example I'm using the xLevel Class Plugin and if a giant dies because of the fire of my fire arrows I get rewarded in MonsterHunt, not in MonsterCookie due..

    It is great but a few things that I noticed that you might want to think about. Cobwebs slow them down like normal entities, even if it is only a single cobweb. Also, a two block high barrier is not climbable by them, just like normal entities. I don't know how easy it would be for you to "scale up" their abilities to get around these. Also, it is hard to work out the combat range of a giant because it doesn't actually do anything different. Can you make it throw the fire as fireballs or swing its arms when striking?

    I haven't seen them burnt in daylight, but I have seen them struggle to get out of water (eventually dying with no treasure left behind).

    I hope you continue this mod (and make multi-part treasure as others have suggested). I think it may eventually add a bit of a challenge to the players on my server.

    Fireballs? ^-^ If you get around to updating to 928, shouldn't it be possible to make 'em shoot fireballs, instead of just setting you on fire? :D Just an idea :3

    Please make this Plugin spawn Humans ( /spawnmob Monster) ^^

    In CB 928, whenever you make a first hit on a giant on the server it automatically restarts for some reason.

    I can tell you already, it's not the NaturalGiants mod. It is a corrupt chunk. I had the same thing (albeit with a zombie, not giant zombie) until I fixed the corrupt chunk. I don't know how you would fix it. It took me fiddling with backups (Merging backup data with current data) to get it fixed.

  28. hey. some people have become really good at taking down these things. can you add it so they will spawn some spiders when they are at 50% health?
