The Official Minecraft Zookeeper Challenge

All the rules you need to know in order to follow along with Jared on this dangerous challenge of extreme animal preservation!

Jared Nunn

Greetings and welcome to the toughest Minecraft challenge you will EVER ENCOUNTER! Luckily, it’s totally worth it in order to save the turtles (sksksksksk). This challenge has required and optional objectives, so let’s get into it.


OBJECTIVE

Your objective for this challenge is to tame and capture every tameable mob in the RLCraft Modpack and build them all a zoo to live in. You can also pad out your zoo with non-tameable, passive mobs such as chickens and cows, but it's not required.

GETTING STARTED

  • To start off, download Minecraft Forge 12.2.2 + JourneyMap + the RLCraft modpack (we suggest Curseforge)

  • RLCraft has special rules and parameters, so we suggest doing research on how the world works before you start your zoo adventure.

  • Once you load into your RLCraft world, you’ll want to immediately begin searching for a home base. Finding a bed is the best way to set your play area and stop the random spawning.

RULES

  • You can’t use any mods other than JourneyMap + The RLCraft Modpack

  • Shaders + texture packs are allowed and encouraged

  • You must have at least 1 of each tameable mob in an enclosure for it to count towards your zoo’s overall completion.

  • Your zoo’s enclosures have to be connected with a path or boundary of some sort. You can’t just find a mob, build walls around it, and call it a zoo!

  • Mobs of similar biomes can share an enclosure, but you must place a sign/label for each mob so your guests can easily identify them.

  • You must actually tame each mob with their proper items - leading a mob to an enclosure with a lead isn’t good enough! We need a SAFE zoo.

  • Creative Mode is TOTALLY OFF LIMITS!

  • We want to see your zoos! Tag us with #zookeeperchallenge in your social posts!
