Enable Monsters Special Attacks 1.3

Now they will breath fire, spout eyeballs, shoot rainbows, and many other ranged attacks!

    Bored of seeing monotonous attacks from the randomly generated monsters? Not anymore!

    This mod allows procedurally generated monsters to use special (ranged) attacks. Now they will breath fire, vomit acid, spout eyeballs, shoot rainbows, and many other ranged attacks!

    • The attacks are enabled on bipeds and quadrupeds (both large and small) also large flying monsters.
    • Large ground monsters have melee and ranged attacks; small ground monsters have only ranged attacks.
    • Each attacks have unique sound so you won't be hearing fire breath SFX on ice sprinkler attack.
    • Large flying monsters now have two ranged attacks and hover above you instead of trying to stupidly charge on you.
    This mod is safe to be uninstalled at any time without any repercussion.

    Alternative mod:
    Looking for more improvements to monsters, not just ranged attacks? Better AI, more monster skills, and various other monster tweaks?

    Go get the fantastic Supper's Combat Overhaul instead!

    The difference between this mod and Supper's mod:
    • This mod only uses existing monster skills, Supper's mod adds new skills and behaviors.
    • You can remove this mod mid-game (because this mod only uses vanilla files), while with Supper's mod you have to regenerate your universe before removing it (because Supper's mod adds new monster skills and behaviors).

    been using this for half a month now and its so fun. the monsters' ridiculous over the top mega energy(or other things) blast attacks are so fun and varied, youll never know which one you get hit with next and also the associated effects are unique and interesting too. easily an enhancement to my experience

    This is a mod you wouldn't know you needed. I remembered when these guys all had their special attacks and found it weird they just charged you instead now. This mod fixes that and adds a much needed variation back into all of the animals we find on each planet! :)

    My goodness, this makes exploration MUCH more interesting. It was getting old when the small and large monsters had the same "pouncing" attack.

    Some of the monsters are actually terrifying with this mod, especially when you're trying to survive your first planet on Hardcore mode.

    I wish I found this mod sooner!
