swimming mob doesn't "rotate"
Sun, 01/12/2020 - 05:31

Hello!

So I've added a new mob called the "Giant squid", and I've gotten it too swim pretty well, however, there is one problem, It's always upright, never changing directions.

For example, Here's what a squid looks like underwater:

Squid

Here is what my giant squid always looks like underwater:

GiantSquid

Is there a way for me to get the giant squid to behave like the normal squid when swimming? If anyone could tell me It would be greatly appreciated

 

Things to know

---------------------------------------------------------------------

* The giant squid model was made in tabula and used the squid model as a base

* The Giant squid is a creature

* The creature type is undefined

* The Giant squid is a Water entity

* The giant squid is not a flying entity

* The giant squid moves through the water by flying around with a speed factor of 1

* The giant squid's spawning type is a "waterCreature"

* The giant squid only naturally spawns in deep oceans

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't think there is a way to do this. I suggest you open a support ticket for this and we will consider adding alternate path selectors for swimming mobs.

...maybe we could rotate the model so it's horizontal facing

this would at least make it look squidlike most of the time?

I didn't really use an animation, I wante to test swimming functionality before adding it in because i didn't know if it would work as intended, and since i made this thread, the answer was it wasn't. I haven't worked on any of my mods in awhile but i'm thinking of working on my mods again so i'll get back to you if I'm able to implement the giant squid
