Wow cool mod! I have an idea. Crazy but I think it won't be that bad. Make a rare item dropped by crabs named Crab Crown or something. It will be used to summon a miniboss - King Crab. It's drop could be Golden Shell that applies you water breating while in inventory.

Omg the crabs are so freaking cute! I look forward to your updates :D

nice work dude this mod is super amazing but can you add ant or bee queen a boss mob in the game with special reward for killing it

Currently, in version 2020.3 of MCreator, a lot of the code I've done now doesn't work. Also, the AI of mobs doesn't work either. So, sadly, I have to wait for 2020.4 to come out to fix issues and release later versions. I plan on releasing 1.14.4 and 1.15.2 versions of the mod in later updates.
