The misfortune of dealing with a creeper is no doubt something that pretty much every single Minecraft player has experienced multiple times. However, even though they are such a big part of the Minecraft experience, there’s still no doubting the fact that vanilla Creepers don’t really have that much depth to the gameplay and most of the time they’re more of a nuisance than anything else. The Environmental Creepers mod has been built to add a bit more functionality to these creatures and give players a bit of control over what they are and aren’t capable of.
The primary characteristic of Creepers that the Environmental Creepers mod allows players to control is what occurs upon their explosion. Normally when a creeper explodes it ends up taking out most nearby blocks but with this mod, you can make it so that creeper explosions have no effect on the blocks in its explosion radius. On the other hand, you can also make the destroyed blocks drop various kinds of an item upon their destruction, and this can actually help you acquire a ton of loot if a creeper ends up exploding in an area where there are lots of blocks.
On top of all this, through the Environmental Creepers mod you can also increase or decrease the intensity of both regular and charged Creeper explosions, and this can be pretty useful if you find yourself dying to creeper explosions often. The mod came out fairly recently so there might be a chance that you’ll run into a few bugs while using it but fortunately no users have reported any bugs up until now. Finally, it’s important that you run the mod on Minecraft versions 1.9 or above in order ensure a smooth experience that’s free from any compatibility problems that might hinder the mod’s functionality.
