The Living Blocks adds walking blocks into Minecraft. As you travel around the world you will notice normal blocks and ores walking around. When you kill these walking mobs they will always drop the block that they are. While going mining you will have a better chance of getting emeralds and diamonds.

This mod is all about making Minecraft come alive (quite literally) in order to add a bit more fun but still functionality to the game. It adds a number of so called “Living” blocks and a few others that are very unique to this mod. All of the following mobs: drop themselves upon death (so a diamond ore for the living diamond); get progressively faster and harder to kill the rarer they are and all spawn respective to where they would spawn underground (so emerald in extreme hills biomes and diamond below level 16).
Here are the first 7 “Living Ores”; the living: coal (slowest, 10 hearts), iron (slow 15, hearts), gold (slow, 15 hearts), redstone (average speed, 20 hearts), lapis (average speed, 20 hearts), emerald (fast, 25 hearts) and diamond (fast, 25 hearts). Be careful though, none of these guys can swim so are very susceptible to drowning in both water and lava.
Next up we have 3 living blocks based off the plants in Minecraft with one being hostile. These are the living: melon (slow, 10 hearts), pumpkin (slow, 10 hearts) and cactus (slow, 10 heart, deals half a heart). They all spawn where you would normally find them so melons in jungles, pumpkins in most and cacti in desert and mesa biomes. This time however, don’t worry about them drowning as they can swim, but lava will still kill them so watch out for that.
Last but not least for mobs, there are 3 mobs that you are actually able to tame, namely the cracked stone blockling (slow, 10 hearts, deals 2 hearts); the regular stone blockling (average, 15 hearts, deals 2 and a half hearts) and the lava blockling (fast, 20 hearts, deals 2 and a half hearts + fire damage). They are all found in caves along with the living ores and once tamed will try to defend you, plus you can right click them with the item you use to tame them to make them sit and stop pestering you on your latest build (so always keep some spare). However, having said this, they are not the most intelligent of creatures which you may notice when using these guys, whether that being them enjoying a break mid fight or what not. They also are known to drown if they fall into water or burn in lava with the exception of the lava blockling who won’t burn in lava. They are tamed using their favourite snacks; crushed cobblestone, crushed stone and crushed lava infused stone which will be looked at now.
