Scarecrows is a delightful Minecraft mod that adds various different kinds of scarecrows through which you can keep certain areas of the world secure from any mobs that would be trying to mark their territory over there. On paper, it might not seem like the Scarecrows mod would have much to offer other than a simple scarecrow but, as it turns out, there’s actually a lot more depth to the mod than initially meets the eye and this is why it comes highly recommended from us and should absolutely be worth anyone’s while.
Features and Functionality
The Scarecrows mod features many different kinds of scarecrows that have been divided across three different tiers with each individual tier having two different types of scarecrows for players to use. The actual process of making a scarecrow is pretty similar to the process of making golems so you probably won’t have much trouble making them. One important detail worth remembering, though, is that you can actually make the scarecrows glow if you replace their heads with a Jack o’ Lantern instead of a pumpkin and this is actually a pretty neat little detail. It’s also worth remembering that, whenever mobs are scared by the scarecrow, they’ll actually run away while making a lot of noise and this usually serves as a pretty useful indicator that your scarecrow is doing its job. Creepers don’t make any noise, though, so you’ll never be able to tell when one ran off.
Compatibility and Technical Aspects
Scarecrows is a pretty straightforward mod so it doesn’t have any of the features that would usually end up causing technical troubles which is why you’ll be in for a pretty smooth experience if you try this mod out on either Minecraft 1.12 or Minecraft 1.13.
All said and done, Scarecrows is a highly useful mod that you’ll definitely want to check out if you’re looking for a way to keep Minecraft mobs away from certain places.
