Removing some hostile creatures in minecraft

Hello fellow minecrafters, I am making an adventure map with lots of fighting mobs in it, and I was wondering if there was a way to stop creepers from destroying the map (for obvious reasons.)

  • Welcom to Arqade! I edited out the second question, but you can probably find the answer in one of these questions if you aren't looking for a mod: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/9344/… gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/10270/… Jan 24, 2013 at 6:10
  • @Wikwocket: It seems like he's asking more if it's possible to have creepers, just not have them destroy the landscape. Jan 24, 2013 at 7:46
  • @Ullallulloo I agree, but the question I linked did have the solution in an answer. The "How can I disable creepers block damage" is a better match though; glad some people linked that one.

You can set /gamerule mobGriefing false. This will also prevent Wither damage, Ghast damage, crop trampling and Endermen moving blocks. This works in singleplayer too.
