I'm running a private Feed-the-Beast MindCrack server for Minecraft 1.4.6.

I'm about to open the server to a friend who is inexperienced with Minecraft and I'm concerned about creeper damage.

Is there a server-side mod compatible with with Minecraft 1.4.6 & the MindCrack modpack which is able to nerf creeper explosions such that they do not break blocks?

Bukkit is not an option as it is not compatible with this modpack.

  • Gravity guns are excellent for preventing creeper damage :D – SaintWacko Jan 9 '13 at 14:48

    @SaintWacko I don't think Gravity guns are part of the MindCrack pack. – Mikuso Jan 9 '13 at 14:53

In Minecraft 1.4.6 you can set the mobGriefing game rule to false to prevent creeper damage. I can't think why this wouldn't work in FTB.

Set it by typing:

/gamerule mobGriefing false

    @Mikuso note that this will also prevent endermen from moving blocks – ratchet freak Jan 9 '13 at 18:42

    @Mikuso It will also prevent Ghast fireball damage, and mobs trampling crops. – fredley Jan 10 '13 at 9:54
