Tschipcraft's Spawn Animations

A server-side data pack/mod for 1.14x-1.20.4

Support for 1.20.6/1.21 is in the works.


Hostile mobs dig out of the ground or poof into existence when they spawn.

Works with: Zombies, Husks, Drowned, Skeletons, Strays, Spiders, Cave Spiders, Creepers, Slimes, Magma Cubes, Wither Skeletons, Hoglins, Zombified Piglins, Striders, Enderman and Giants.

This data pack/mod is designed to be as unintrusive as possible. Hidden entities including their worn armor and tools will only be invisible and silent.

Spawn Animations is completely server-side!

-> For available settings and customization, take a look at the wiki <-

More sophisticated animations with Animated Java are planned for v2.0! Stay tuned.


This data pack is also available as a mod with an additional global config file and settings menu when installed alongside MidnightLib.

Decide if you want to download the pack as a pure data pack [DP] or packaged as a mod [Mod].
Put the pure data pack .zip file into the datapacks folder of your Minecraft world, or the mod into your .minecraft/mods folder.


To open the ingame menu, execute /trigger or /function #tschipcraft:menu. There is a Reset and an Uninstall button.
