Sneak Peek - Foxes!

One of the most requested things in the last feedback questionnaire
was more mobs, specifically... a few more animals.

So here's the first of the new mobs I've added to my mod, 
Diggys Mobs, for the 2.0 update... the Fox! 


This little fellow is cute, fast and always on the lookout for his next meal!

If you are keeping chickens or ducks then make sure they're in a secure pen, foxes will try everything they can to get to them and if they do it's feast time!

The Fox also has a smaller cousin, the Arctic Fox!


Just because they're smaller doesn't mean they are any slower or less hungry! 

They tend to blend in to their habitat, snowy biomes, so can be very hard to spot.


Both variations drop Fox Fur, which can be crafted into a suit (either white or orange), and when a full set is worn your running speed is boosted by 20%

Are you able to tame them as pets? Or breed them like other critters?

Thanks in advance,

The short answer is no you can't tame or breed them, I wanted to keep them as a purely wild animal.

The long answer is that they use a custom type of AI, so unlike vanilla animals they breed naturally. Essentially when a fox is able to feast on a number of chickens/ducks in a short time the next thing it does is seek out a mate and breed.
