If possible you could fix the knockback if a creeper explodes. Flying a few hundred blocks high, is a little to muchBig Grin

Edit: Okay, goes much further that problem, has something to with getting damage If I am in the air, then I will get knockback very far away.

MCServers knockback handling is very confused in places. If you are attacked by a mob or player the damage is knock back is applied in cEntity::DoTakeDamage. This method is also called by explosions, but the knock back handling is handled by cChunkMap::DoExplosionAt. I suspect the issue with damage in the air is that MCServer applies a flat upwards acceleration, not taking into account existing upwards velocity.

This is just amazing work!! The last time I tried having monsters enabled in addition to animals, was in January.

And ... I encountered way too many monsters.
And ... there were invisible creepers!

Nobody wants invisible creepers.

Is that manymonsters/invisiblecreepers thing fixed, too? Smile Though I am happy with waiting. Animal mobs are more important for the core survival experience (food source and all that). Wish they made all their normal in-game sounds. Only when they get hurt or die, they make noise, it seems. No chicken footsteps, no bock,bock,bock,bock,bock, begowwwwk, no moo cow. Wink Yet.

I added another item to the list. The heads of the mobs are jittering when they are looking in a different direction their path is going.

I didn't tune spawn control, so I cannot say anything regarding "manymonsters".
I didn't encounter invisible creepers, tell me if you see them.
Sounds are a good idea later on Smile

LOL ^^. Please no, god no!

I might test that in a few months if I hear no more of it, I'm running a server that I don't want to fiddle around too much with, so players can go about their buisness undisturbed.
