Congratulations for winning Mod of the Week :)
I love how you made some bosses spawn in groups and the models look top-notch :D

Your mod was also promoted on our official subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/MCreator/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MCreatorModMaker/).

whoa, this mod is awesome. I think it's really well thought-out! plus I'd like to say that I like the mob models you made; they look neat! discovered this mod a while back & played it, then I was amazed and hoped for it to win MOTW... and now, look at where we are! congratulations, you deserve it! :)

Thank you bro! You helped a lot by telling me how to upload pictures properly to the description. Without that I wouldn’t have been able to show my mod as well! Thank you man. I look forward to seeing you continue to work on your mod, I will help too if you need any. I think you deserve the recognition!

Glad I could be helpful! And you inspired me with how you used these pictures, next update I will surely have more thought-out screenshots and wiki on main page thanks to you! // and as for help, I'd always appreciate some models (especially as one person in comments mentioned great idea for the boss), but I'm afraid even with model I'm too much newbie in MCreator to make boss actually working properly :D thanks for all kind words anyway!

I personally did not like it, but i can see how much effort went into this.
God most of these creatures look SCARY.
But nice job, not like i can do any better anyway.
