As far as functionality goes, Hydrophobic Skeletons might not be the mod in-depth mod out there seeing as it doesn’t really add any groundbreaking new features into the game. However, it’s still one of those mods that make one minor change to the game and this minor change then makes the gameplay significantly more enjoyable. Through the Hydrophobic Skeletons, you’ll be able to avoid annoying instances where skeletons end up chasing you into places that they aren’t physically possible to go and in-turn this will make the gameplay more enjoyable for you and will prevent any confusing scenarios from occurring.
The change that the Hydrophobic Skeletons mod makes is that it prevents any skeletons coming into contact with water. The mod makes it so that skeletons are extremely scared of water which is why they won’t go anywhere near it and won’t spawn in it either. This mod gets rid of a lot of infuriating situations in which players spot something in the water and are about to go and get it, but a skeleton ends up ruining everything for them by showing up out of nowhere. Due to this mod, you’ll also get access to a neat escape route whenever you end up getting ganged up on by skeletons since you’ll be able to retreat into water anytime you feel overpowered.
The Hydrophobic Skeletons came out quite recently and is likely going to work quite smoothly since no major bugs haven’t reported with it yet and it’s pretty simple so any bugs that would impact its functionality probably won’t surface. The mod’s available for Minecraft 1.10.2 and 1.7.10 so you might need to upgrade or downgrade your Minecraft client in order to use it. Overall, this is a great mod that makes a really useful change to the functionality of skeletons in Minecraft.
