Ocean Attack: One hit Kill
Liopleurodon (meaning "Smooth Side Teeth") is a marine prehistoric creature added in the 6.3 Build. It is fully grown in 13 Minecraft days, reaching the size of 7.5 blocks long and 1.2 blocks tall. It can drop liopleurodon meat, liopleurodon gastralias, leg bones, arm bones, rib cages, vertebrae, feet, and skulls upon death. Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player.
Liopleurodon, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it neutral. Liopleurodon requires a high mood to not attack the player on sight. Right-click it with a DinoPedia to see what its mood is at.
A fossil version of the Liopleurodon can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a Liopleurodon. Like almost all other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are aquatic reptiles, they hatch instantly from egg sacs that need to be placed in water.
Liopleurodon are extremely aggressive purely aquatic reptiles that can only live in water. Even when first born, they are hostile to the player, and cannot be tamed until adulthood (see below). Liopleurodon cannot move at all on land, but will not suffocate if left there, as they breathe air. They require a water tank of at least twenty blocks across and three blocks deep to swim properly, but keep in mind, they can break blocks weaker than iron (except for reinforced glass and dense sand). Their block breaking ability can often make them stuck, as the water may flow into the hole and trap the liopleurodon in the current. They can be very fast when in water, though there is currently a severe bug where the liopleurodon may simply sit at the bottom of its pool and do nothing. This will be fixed in the next build. This can be hazardous, as the liopleurodon will not move to hunt, and may starve without player intervention.
They have a special attack when they grab the player or another animal, and shake the prey around in its mouth, dealing constant damage until the victim is dead. They are able to kill almost all mobs in a single hit. When they do hunt, they will attack the aquatic alligator gar, coelacanth, henodus, ichthyosaurus, nautilus, plesiosaurus, and sarcosuchus, sturgeon, as well as squid. They are also capable of attacking terrestrial animals that enter its waters, including all vanilla animals, hostile mobs such as zombies, the , ankylosaurus, ceratosaurus, deinonychus, gallimimus, and many more. The only creature capable of killing an adult liopleurodon is the spinosaurus, due to its one hit kill attack.
Adult liopleurodon can breed and lay egg sacs every five minutes if there is a male and female present. These egg sacs need to be picked up by the player and right-clicked on water to hatch. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.
As of Build 8.0.0, liopleurodon is no longer considered an apex predator like the megalodon or mosasaurus. To tame it, one must simply be within 6 blocks of the sac's hatching (which the player almost certainly will be as the sac acts like a spawn egg), or feed it meat.
Adult liopleurodon are rideable upon being tamed. They can be ridden by right-clicking it with a whip, which will allow you to mount its back. When ridden, they won't become hungry, won't age, and will not sleep. They are extremely fast and agile when in water, but are very slow when on land or on the ocean floor. They also do not seem to be able to break blocks when being ridden, which can make the liopleurodon become stuck. It can be controlled only if the player constantly holds the whip, and can only be controlled for a short time without it. Riding uses the same WASD format as normal Minecraft movement, and shift to get off. When in water, look up and down to go in that direction.
Liopleurodon are self-sufficient independent carnivores who will hunt out and eat the aforementioned mobs. The best live-food candidate is the prehistoric fish, as they spawn naturally. They can be hand-fed any type of vanilla or mod meat (except for rotten flesh), all kinds of fish (including fish spawn), and Sio-Chiu-Le. They cannot eat from feeders.
