The name ‘Animal Bikes’ tells you everything you need to know about this crazy mod. Using the Animal Bikes Mod, players can ride various animals and mobs around the map.
Yes, that’s right: the Animal Bikes Mod allows players to race around on everything from baby cows to spiders. The mod adds 18 new bikes in total into the game, including some animals you expect – like the Pony Bike and the Sheep Bike, as well as some non-traditional animals like a creeper or Snow Golem. There are also animals that specialize in getting around on water, like the Squid, and animals that fly through the air, like the Pegasus or the Dragon.
To ride around on any animal, simply craft a unique saddle, then equip the saddle and press right-click. Press right-click once more to start riding on the animal. There are several different types of Animal Bikes available under each animal, and the modder has created several different textures and color schemes for each type of bike.
There is even a Notch Bike that looks identical to Notch’s avatar. The Notch Bike also spits out cookies when players press the space bar, and if you hit the Notch Bike when you’re not riding, it will attempt to eat you.
Players can only spawn one animal bike at one time. You can also fire ranged weapons from the top of any Animal Bike. Some animals have a special ability that can be activated by pressing the space bar. For example, the Snow Golem Bike fires snowballs.
One of the coolest Animal Bikes in the mod is the Ender Dragon Bike. Players ride around on the dragon and shoot fire with the click of a button. The Dragon Bike animations are surprisingly well-done, and flying around the world on a Dragon Bike is an exceptionally cool experience.
Different animals have different abilities. The cow, for example, is able to jump two blocks high. The spider bike climbs vertical surfaces, and pig bikes are incredibly fast. With so many different types of Animal Bikes to discover, Animal Bikes 1.6 will keep players entertained for a long time.
A number of fans of the mod have also designed race maps that players can use to play against their friends. Some of these race maps are huge and complex, while others require players to navigate special obstacles using different kinds of animals. Put simply, there is lots to discover with this mod and its respective maps.
