Tech this week has been covering a broad amount of projects.

He has also been testing MorePlayerModels between the different clients running on 1.14 and 1.15.2 with the server versions between 1.13.2, 1.14.4 and 1.15.2. Mcmann has also spent some time working to migrate Minepacks into MassiveVanilla. TheComputerGeek2 has been working more on MassivePvE for the new mob/animal types that are to come with 1.15.2 and creating a new tool for it to edit mobs that have already been spawned into the world. Derpadillo, ItsLateKnight and XxXYaJrAbXxX has also been working to fix many of the bugs that were pointed out by game staff in our first stage of testing for MassiveRaces.

TheComputerGeek2’s Full Point Report

Plugin change summary (some components likely will have their names adjusted):
Introduce CommandPvEManageModify, a tool for modifying mobs that have already been spawned
Updated MassivePvE to Kotlin 1.3.72
New modifiers:
lovemodeticks – apply the breeding ready mode for the target
age – age for creatures which recognize a form of growing up
agelock – lock the aging of creatures
adult – quick option for making an animal an adult
baby – quick option for making an animal a baby
pandagenemain – set the primary gene of pandas
pandagenehidden – set the hidden gene of a panda
phantomsize – set the size of phantoms
beehasstung – control if a bee should be treated as if it has stung something
beehasnectar – control if the bee currently has nectar on it
beecannotenterhiveticks – ticks until a bee is allowed to enter a hive
beeangerticks – how long a bee is to be angry for
beeflowerlocation – the location where a bee should expect to find its flower
beehivelocation – the location where a bee should expect to find its hive
swimming – attempts to force entities to enter a swimming state
foxtype – tweak the type of fox
foxcrouching – control if the fox should be crouching
foxsleeping – is the fox sleeping
patrolleader – is this raid capable mob a patrol leader?
canjoinraid – is this raid capable mob able to join a raid?

Fun example for the usage of CommandPvEManageModify,

/pve manage modify @e[distance=0..30,type=sheep] sheepsheared:True attribute:GENERIC_MOVEMENT_SPEED=2 name:<pink>NAKED_SHEEP

This would modify all sheep within 30 blocks of the command issuer to be unwooled, speedy, and named “NAKED SHEEP” and the name to be pink. The only part lacking tab completion is the target selector which uses vanilla syntax. The rest of it offers full tab completion and is able to utilize the same tools which are used for tweaking fresh spawns from the plugin.
