The Doggy Talents Mod is one of the more unique Minecraft mods. Instead of adding new mobs, buildings, or graphics, the Doggy Talents Mod gives players the ability to tame and train pet wolves.
Although wolves have been in Minecraft for a little while now, they’re more annoying than useful. They have low health and tend to jump into lava. The creator of the Doggy Talents Mod knew he could do better, so he set out to create the best taming and training mod in the Minecraft world.
To start taming a wolf, simply give a wolf a bone. After doing that, players unlock a variety of options. Players can right-click on a tame wolf to name him or to rank up various skills. As your pet wolf gains more experience, points can be placed into a number of special categories that make the pet more powerful.
Players have a number of commands they can use to make their wolves more useful. You can right-click on a dog to make him sit, for example. Or, when you’re holding a pickaxe, the wolf will move far away so that players can mine safely.
The Doggy Talents Mod also makes your pet invincible. Wolves won’t die, but they can become incapacitated. When incapacitated, wolves can’t use any of their normal attacks or self-heal. Instead, they’ll just sit around until the player feeds them.
As time passes, the food level in each pet goes down. This is measured by a number listed above each pet. Players can feed their dog up to a maximum level of 120, and it takes a half-hour to drain the food meter. The food meter goes up fairly quickly with any type of food, so it isn’t too much of a pain to keep your dog healthy.
There are a number of different modes included in the Doggy Talents Mod. These modes help players perform a variety of tasks. In wandering mode, for example, dogs will simply wander around aimlessly. But by switching to tactical mode, the real fun begins. Tactical mode allows players to target mobs. After targeting a mob using a special command beam, the dog will attack that mob on sight.
There is also an ‘aggressive’ mode as well as a ‘berserker’ mode. In ‘berserker’ mode, wolves will attack any mob on sight, turning them into a killing machine. Players don’t have to use the command beam at all, and the wolves will aggro everything they come across.
There are all sorts of training features included in the Doggy Talents Mod. Players can craft a wide range of tools that make it easy to train the dog, and objects like the breeding bone can be used to create new wolves.
Whether you want to play fetch with your dog or you want to start your own dog breeding empire in the Minecraft world, the Doggy Talents Mod gives player the ability to do all sorts of fun things with their new pet. From hunting to playing fetch, the Doggy Talents Mod is a fun mod for any Minecraft dog owner.
