How do you spawn specific monsters in Minecraft SMP? I have the vanilla server.

You could try giving yourself 52:# but I believe it will only spawn pigs. – GluedHands Dec 9 '11 at 13:22

You can't. The vanilla server only offers basic commands to administrate the server, give items and change the time of day.

You will need to use a bukkit plugin

Thanks for the answer. – jason Dec 9 '11 at 13:26

in the current weekly snapshot, there are items in creative called "spawn eggs" that you can use to spawn animals. there is no vanilla way to spawn mobs in 1.0 though.
