======================================================================================================================

 

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.

 

POPULOUS HELP:

Lot of people are asking me for a Wiki so I decided to give some hints here below. Populous is a SURVIVAL mod. Playing on Survival mod is the funniest and more challing way to play Populous. I know mod has become quite complex and articulated this is why I'm now showing some mechanisms, procedures and else. Take in mind that all ingame items have an accurate description of their use so if you just switch to creative mod you can learn a lot about Populous

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

mayhaps make models use less cubes?
so it will optimizate mod.
aka make it fit more mc style ig :P

Hey, thank you for your feedback
Actually I have thought about it for a long time so I decided to test myself my mod on different pc from ultimate gaming to my mother's one and well...basically advanced models like mine do not lag as I thought they would
So I believe I can keep on making complex models also since my textures are not that good (so people say) at least my models are on the top level :)

This is great! (Btw, how do you animate your mobs so well? I checked a forum, a bit complex for me.)

Which software you used for the models? I've been trying that with Blockbench but it's been pain.
