This mod is my first major undertaking whose goal is to create more interesting swamps that will attract players. All textures and models have been created for the need of this modification. If you want to write what you would like to change or improve and I will try to take this into account. Mod will receive updates until the final version is released. Then I'll start working on another mod.

Amazing mod, I like how you used custom models for the creatures. I think its a little lacking in quantity, though.

You should submit it for MOTW
I think this is the best mod in the minecraft community that improve swamps :)
