Topic category: Help with modding (Java Edition)
Since my sister will likely spend her 14th birthday in quarantine I'm trying to make a mod of our dog for Minecraft. I have the basic model and png template for him and he runs ok in-game (a few bugs like his muzzle doesn't turn with his head which is a bit unnerving). He would be ok as is, but I really want to go hard for her and have a lot of ideas based on the other entities in Minecraft.
Basically, I want to know if it's possible to code behavior from other mobs for my custom mob? I would love to take the fox behavior where it sleeps as well as the lazy panda behavior where it lays on it's back and wiggles it's legs. I'm a computer science major, btw, and have some experience with java but I'm lazy and prefer the easiest method (hence why I'm using mcreator instead of trying to code it from scratch) but if there's a better solution I can opt to code as well.
