POPULOUS DESCRIPTION:

 
  

Populous is an ambitious and continuos project which will be constantly updated. The purpose here is populating our loved world with tons of new inhabitants which may include: animals, forest creatures, monsters, evil essences, legendary mobs, fantasy beings and so forth. Each will come with its own custom (homemade) drops: funny weapons, strange ranged items, evil mobs, lovely drops, powerful blocks, backpacks, weapons, equipment and more and more.  

Populous mobs and items are very rare, if you don't find a mob is just cause it's rare to be found but all entities naturally spawn. Just keep on searching. Each mob comes in his correct biome (no penguin in the desert or camels in swamp) and we do not have any over number of mobs, all spawn weights are perfectly calibrated

If you don't drop an item is just cause it's rare, the more mobs you kill the better chances to drop rare stuff you have.

OTHER MODS:

 

** For recipes please use Jei

 

** Compatibily with most of other mods including the most famous Biomes mods (Biomes o plenty, Biomes you'll go etc...). Populous mobs also spawn in these mods biomes (in some cases Populous mobs will ONLY spawn in some not vanilla biomes).

Most of Biomes type mods just offer not populated biomes, now with Populous all other mods Biomes will finally have life inside

 

** Ok for Modpacks, you can add Populous and please credit author

I like your mod, but I think you should work on your textures a little to make them more consistent across the board :)

Hey, thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. Please help me better understand how to improve.
First of all all my entity textures are deeply studied before releasing while i agree with your for items textures which are too regular. Please let me know where you have found some bad ones and I will look into them also for entities
Also please what you mean by "board" ?

thank you

Your models are awesome and also textures.
This is one of my favourite mods at all

Congratulations for winning Mod of the Week :)
I wish you fixed those steak textures before winning MOTW, but the mod has gotten so huge and complex that inconsistent item textures can't be a reason to not win it, so congrats! :D

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

Yo there and many thanks for the prize, I put many efforts here and I'm very glad for it. Is something which I don't really understand tough. I'm receiving tons of positive feedbacks for my entities (mobs) but also many negative feedbacks for my textures. I still don't understand where the problem is with my textures. Which textures are not good ? No one explained me which textures are bad and why are bad ?
Basically I put 95% efforts on entities and 5% on everything else and I believe my mob textures are good so where the problem is ?
I would really appreciate someone explaining me
thank you

First of all thank you for your time but still I do not understand, I would need to see a concrete example maybe to understand
All my entities have deep shades and i use full spectrum of colours. What's wrong with it ? Colours are wrong ? Too clear ?
Really find it hard to understand how to improve textures

Looks nice, I just love the druid forest theme and idea overall :D Nice job!
