Magma Cube


Behavior

Magma cubes move by hopping, which they will do each 40 to 120 ticks Nearly all video games (including Minecraft) are driven by one big program loop. Just as every gear in a clock is synchronized with the pendulum, every task involved in advancing a game simulation is synchronized (2 to 6 seconds).

Magma cubes will search for a player within 16 blocks (spherical) distance.

  • If no players are found, they wait 40 to 120 ticks (2 to 6 seconds). Then they will change direction, by a random amount up to 57.26⃂₰ (1 radian) left or right, jump, and repeat the process.
  • If a player is found, the delay before jumping will be 1⃢₁₄3 as long (13 to 40 ticks), and the magma cube`s direction will be set directly toward the nearest player before jumping.

Magma cubes cannot burn and are not slowed down or damaged by lava. Instead, it seems that they can swim upward extremely quickly in lava. They cannot be hurt from fall damage, cannot swim, and will drown in normal water.

Magma cubes` jump height depends on their size. Their forward speed is twice that of most other mobs. They always make a distinct sound upon jumping up and landing, but no idle sounds.

Unlike most other mobs, magma cubes have no pathfinding ability, meaning that they will not avoid falling off cliffs and cannot go around walls, even when they are chasing a player.

Trivia

  • When a larger magma cube that has a name dies, the smaller magma cubes it spawns will have the same name.

Spawning

Magma cubes spawn rarely everywhere in the Nether A view of the Nether. The Nether is a hell-like dimension, filled with fire, lava, and dangerous mobs.

Combat

Magma cubes attack players The Player Health points 20 () Armor points Varies Attack strength Fist: 1 () Items: Varies Size Height: 1.8 Blocks Width: 0.6 Blocks While sneaking: Height: 1.65 Blocks Width: 0.6 Blocks While gliding: Height: 0.6 minecraft by attempting to land on top of them, but can cause damage when the player touches them anywhere. This can make large cubes tricky to fight, as their jump rate is fairly random.

The health of a magma cube is size squared. The attack strength is size plus 2. The armor points is size tripled.

A magma cube`s jump height and distance also depends on their size; a magma cube will jump a distance approximate to its length times 1.5, and a height equivalent to their size in blocks. This means that a size 4 magma cube will jump four blocks in height and move significantly quicker than a size 2 magma cube, which will jump two blocks in height, while a size 1 (tiny) will move at a very slow rate and jump one block in height.

When a magma cube is killed, it may split into 1 to 4 magma cubes of the smaller size, and will disappear like other mobs if the smallest size is killed.

Magma cubes also have an odd attack interval: their attack speed is twice that of other melee-combat mobs. Mobs like Endermen Enderman Health points 40 ( × 20) Attack strength Easy: 4 () Normal: 7 () Hard: 10 () Size Height: 2.9 Blocks Width: 0.6 Blocks Spawn In the Overworld, the Nether or the End in minecraft and silverfish attack at a rate of one hit per second, while magma cubes attack at a rate of two hits per second. Essentially, this means that a size 4 magma cube will deal six hearts of damage per second on normal difficulty, dealing three hearts every half-second.

Data values

See also: Chunk format

Magma cubes have entity data associated with them that contain various properties of the mob. Their entity ID is magma_cube.


  • Entity data
    • Tags common to all entities see Template:Nbt inherit/entity/template
    • Tags common to all mobs see Template:Nbt inherit/mob/template

    • ⃂Size: The size of the slime. Note that this value is zero-based, so 0 is the smallest slime, 1 is the next larger, etc. The sizes that spawn naturally are 0, 1, and 3.

    • ⃂wasOnGround: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if slime is touching the ground.

History

Official release
1.0.0 Beta 1.9-pre1 Magma cubes have been added.
“It started out as a retexturing of the Slime for the Nether - it was just going to be a Lava Slime. But then when I named it that, I felt it was a bit lazy to retexture a mob. I wanted to make it more unique. I can’t really remember how I came up with the idea to have a layered block, but it’s one of my favourite mobs now. It really intrigues me. It doesn’t stand out in any particular way - I just really like it! You can use Magma Cream an item Magma cubes drop to brew Fire Resistance potions.” -Jeb
