Upcoming: Evil Minecraft (V0.666)


A couple of months ago, Evil_Notch assembled a team of modders to work on an “Evil Minecraft” mod. It got a lot of attention and had a good list of features that ranged from mobs to world generation. Ever since 1.8 hit, the mod has been dormant, and updates have been few and far between, but now they posted an image containing a list of all the features that will be included in the 0.666 update of the mod, the biggest one yet. It’s supposed to hit not long after the 1.2 update for Minecraft, so we are probably looking at a early March release. Exceptional modders including DrZhark and Hippopolatimus are working on this mod, so expect nothing short of awesome.

I’ve played this mod extensively before, and I can tell you that it is fun, but hard. The mod makes almost every mob much harder to fight in a different way such as the Camouflage Creepers which take the color of whatever block they’re on, meaning they will be even harder to spot. Regular animals are also made dangerous. Besides regular pigs, there are Creepigs which are green and act like regular creepers – they will chase you down and blow you up. The chickens have a chance of turning into Giant Chickens when you hit them, or when night falls. Giant chickens shoot  fireballs like Ghast, except they do so with 3 fireballs at a time, not just one. Boars are also in the game with this mod, and they are basically pigs that defend themselves. Killing sheep isn’t as easy either, as Rams spawn with sheep, and they will protect them from any intruders by charging, which you don’t want.

Ashes appear when something burns down, dungeons also include creeper nests, moss and vines spread over time, blood sprays all over the ground when you kill stuff, pigman clans roam the world and almost everything is out to kill you. But hey, it’s all fine because torches emit light when held. That makes up for all the bad stuff, right?

Here is a full list of features in the upcoming update, taken from this image posted on the Evil Minecraft fanpage:

  • Ender creepers and Ender ghasts
  • Blood (with a toggle to disable it)
  • A better snow biome with new mobs, better looks and ice items
  • Randomly generated mazes
  • Torches run out, but lanterns don’t
  • Spreading moss and vines
  • Ashes
  • Volcanoes that grow from nothing

  • Graveyards
  • Rams
  • Sandwiches
  • Mummies
  • Quicksand
  • Chocolate cake
  • Camouflage creepers
  • Nether portals corrupt worlds
  • Fossils and bone tools and armor
  • New ore – platinum
  • Ebony trees in the End
  • Ender Dragon scales that can be crafted into armor
  • Bulls
  • Nether trees
  • Mimic chests
  • Creepigs
  • Baby creepers and creeper nests
  • More fences
  • Nether skeletons
  • More pressure plates
  • Decorative walls
  • A better Jungle biome with “super-tall” grass, dinos, monkeys, cabins and more

  • Icicles
  • Yetis and Sasquatches
  • Magic wands
  • Tainted pork
  • Hippos
  • Heated weapons
  • Firestone
  • Evil creepers
  • Boars
  • Bears
  • Lemon trees
  • Cheese
  • Custom grass render system (supposed to allow you to climb hills without jumping)
  • Evil wizard pigmen
  • Alligators
  • Ender dust
  • Better potion system
  • Obsidian tools and armor
  • Black holes
  • Pigs drop ham or pork
  • BACON!

Some of these features sound more interesting than the others, but this mod is turning out to be one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a while now, and boasts more features than the biggest mods! You should definitely keep an eye out for Evil Minecraft, as it’s shaping up to become the biggest mod ever. There isn’t a download available yet, except for the old beta ones, but you can check out more about the mod here:

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Evil Minecraft is cancelled as of the 28th of February. Go to evil-minecraft.net. That is their homepage, it has all sorts of stuff relating to the mod. One of the posts as of me writing this comment is by EvilNotch who says “I was really looking forward to releasing the mod for 1.2 in a few weeks, but this won’t be happening.” It is a real shame to see that this mod will not be updated, but I think that his claims are valid. View his full post on their site.

    Dear EvilMinecraft fans. I am TheDarkKnight, one of the coders of Evil Minecraft. In case you haven’t heard, we continue to work on the mod, after Evil_Notch mentioned that we will stop the production, people started to complain and expressed their need in having the mod continued, so we decided to continue after a week of discussing. But just for now. The main reason why we wanted to stop is on the site: evil-minecraft.net

    I also want to tell you that we are still working on adding new features and fixing old ones as wells as the ones that already are. It is most likely we will have the version 0.666 released sometime this month, but we aren’t sure either. But we hope to release it for Minecraft 1.2.3

    The main reason why it’s taking so much is that we want to include at least 90% of the things on the list, if not 100%, not like notch, if you all remember the “Halloween Update” where he promised lots of things, but done like half or so. If you have any questions feel free to send me an email at sor1n.iliutza16@gmail, or join our irc (you can find the link at the Links section from our site).

    I hope this answered some of your questions regarding the mod and it’s current activity. Have a nice day :)

    Oh and will you be having ‘pre releases’ that may destroy worlds and the player downloads AT THIER OWN RISK.

  14. GANGSTAPRO says:

  15. GANGSTAPRO says:

    If Ever Need Ideas I Got Allot I Just Need A Coder To Do The Ideas Hope You Want To Hear Some Of Them Some Time

  16. cyclone_raider says:

    they are still doing the evil minecraft mod look at their home page its all good and i cant wait for it its going to be awesome!!!!!!:):):):)

  17. rarekwiebus says:

    It looks awesome, but for Notch’s sake, remove nether trees (maybe replace with nether coral or nether fungus or nether reefs AROUND lava seas). And PLEASE FOR ALL PEOPLE WHO PLAYED MINECRAFT OVER 7 WEEK AND WITH AN IQ OF ABOVE 70, please remove the obsidian tools&armour!!! Its only funny for an hour, then you’ll get dramaticly annoyed by obsidian tools and armour! Thats just too unoriginal and just not good enough for minecraft (unless the concept is way more epic than in any other mod wich includes obby (obsidian) armours and tools)!

Got something to say? Go for it!
