Get a fantastic armor set to look like a pig with this fun mod called More Shearables. Created by username Lellson, this mod adds a new shear that can be used on other animals besides sheep.
What the Mod Offers
The mod adds a new tool, the golden shear, that can shear chickens, pigs, rabbits, zombie pigmen, creepers, polar bears, llamas, and parrots, aside from the usual sheep. Animals sheared will yield their resources like feathers and leather. Pigs yield pig skin, while polar bears yield polar bear hide. Both of these new items can be crafted into a new armor set with similar stats to leather but look entirely different.
Should You Install It?
The mod is small, yet it is also quite fun. The mod is good when playing in vanilla survival with your animal farm.
How to Use
To get started, you will need a Shaver, which can be crafted with 2 Gold and some Shears.
Now, right-click a chicken/cow/pig with your new Shaver and pull off their skin to get some stuff.
Don’t worry, if animals are naked, they will eat grass to regrow their skin and turn back to normal.
You can change all drops in the config file, but the defaults are:
Chicken – Feathers
Pig – Pig Skin
Cow – Leather
Rabbit – Rabbit Hide
Zombie Pigman – Rotten Flesh
Creeper – ?
Polar Bear – Polar Bear Hide
Llama – Leather
Parrot – Feathers
Be careful because Zombie Pigmen become very angry if you shave them…
You can also disable the shaving of certain mobs in the config file.
The mod also adds 2 new materials. You can get pig skin by shaving pigs and polar bear hide by shaving polar bears.
Both can be used to craft leather or 2 amazing armor sets.
If you wear a full set of pig armor, pigs near the player get panic and run away. However, Pigmen near the player become angry. If you wear a full set of polar bear armor, polar bears around you become aggressive.
