Do you recommend this mod?

  • Comprehensive animal mod, but is targeting the wrong audience (Which I assume to be young kids)

    I thought this would be a fun mod to add to a LAN server for some neighborhood kids, but the (as far as I can see) only breeding method was an instant nope

    EDIT: You can now disable this breeding method in your minetest.conf. My review will stand until it's not the default though

  • Adds lots of animals.

    This mod adds a bunch of fun mobs, some that you wouldn't expect from a mod that provides pets.

    My only complaint is that the semen collection uses the syringe, which is completely inacurate. Although in Runs defense, I really don't know how to do it better.

    You can watch my review on it here,

  • Agreed on questionablity

    This is a pretty cool mod, the ai of the mobs is nice.

    I do have to agree on questionable content. From what lone wolf says, this definanlty can't be a mod for kids with that, there was also a bad word in the forum post I also thought the "killer santa" was really weird, my understanding of this mod, was to create more of a mobs mod for kids, that adds tamable animals/pets, I don't get the killer santa and other things you added like, that, isn't this a "petz" mod? Plus that's not a good idea for a kid's mod.

    I think this is potentially a great mod for kids if these issues get fixed. As for now I can't reccomend this mod for kids. Thanks for your time working on this mod, but I would be very happy if you could fix these problems.


  • This mod doesn't deserve the hate it's getting

    I like this mod, the models are well-made and look natural and fit into a voxel game really well. Probably one of the best pet mods out there. I find it very sad that all those people are downvoting it simply because they're offended over ONE mechanic it has.
    Wait till they find out how animals are bred in real life.

  • some downsides have been fixed, players have a lot of fun w/ the mechanics.

    overall, this mod gets an upvote from me, though there are some downsides. however, some old downvotes critique things which have been solved.

    things which have been fixed:

    • you can disable the syringe (disable_syringe = true in user.conf)

    • you can disable specific mobs you might think are inappropriate in user.conf, e.g. killer santas, by editing the petz_list setting in user.conf

    • the mod can be used reliably. it doesn't have any serious conflicts w/ other mods, though there are a few aesthetic conflicts


    • mod is actively maintained

    • the tamed mobs are much more reliable than mods_redo

    • there's quite a lot of variety, and new content gets added all the time

    • there's a number of different mechanics that players enjoy engaging with

    • people like taming and keeping petz

    • people like keeping beehives

    • werewolves are fun

    • playing fetch is fun

    • some things are easy, and some are difficult but rewarding

    ambivalent, but notable:

    • the petz are "cute", but have quite basic models/textures


    • has its own custom system for settings

    • some questionable choices of which things not related to "pets" should be included

  • I mean... not for kids

    I like the fact that the animals textures are simple and don't fit with mt textures style ('cause the latter is just bad and noisy, with a very boring use of colors; clearly not made by a pixel artist), but as everybody else said the content is quite questionable...

  • stupid AI

    stupid AI. Just trying to die

  • Great mod

    Adds lots of animals, great for kids, only has one or two problems: 1. Why is there a pumpkin killer? And a Santa killer? And a werewolf? Isn't it supposed to be "petz"? Not that it isn't enjoyable... 2. How in the world do you turn people into werewolfs? There aren't any descriptions for it, please look into this. Thank you.

  • Questionable content

    i mostly agree with lone wolfs review that this mod contains questionable content, as well as the author has a history of creating or intending to create questionable content. on the plus side this mod does have a nice variety of mobs based on mobkit which is way better than mobs redo. however the texture style does not really mesh well with mtg

  • The best mod I have ever installed on Minetest!

    It works very well even when my game has other 20 different mods at the same time! All the Petz are super cute and spending a little time with them is allways fun, there is a huge amount of animals and types. I just wish there were more breedable Petz and more variety of food to tame them.

  • Fits with Minetest

    The mod fits with the voxelness of minetest which i think is really good! Also I don't know why people are saying the breeding system is wierd, because it's not even like real animals, but I guess they have a point in a way. I hope to see more cute animals! :D

    Keep up the good work!

  • But monkey mob`s

    face not so cute and nice as before. New one is worse

  • I just like it

    Me gusta, el aspecto de los animales y lo que le anade al gameplay el interactuar con ellos,tambien creo que este mod podria tener su propio subjuego estilo Harvest Moon . I like,the aspectof the animals and what ads to gameplay interact whit then, also i believe this mod can have his own subgame like Harvest Moon.

  • Very Good

    Is Just Very Good runing on my server Entity API: ok Art: Good. What it I put a 128x128 is the Pet gets HD?

  • Server Would Not Load Mod Due to API Dependency Even When user.conf ed for Mods Redo

    I checked everything and I could not come to a conclusion on why the mod still requires mobkit API and such.

    Mobs Redo expressly said not to run APIs in palleral unless it's supported which is why this a major turn off for me that it will not "plug" into the API.

  • best pets for minetest

    who likes a lot of animals, much more modern, better mod without a doubt.. now there is a mod monsters to match it.. when you put the pets, and mob monsters, it's not so cool, because the pets are different XD ..

  • My kids love this mod

    This mod brings a lot to a minetest world, particularly for kids. It has remained reliable through server, client, and mod updates.

  • UwU

    Muy bonitos los animalitos
