New Minecraft mob: Snow Golem

Got frustrated with AWS, so I made a new mob! :D

It will be craftable, is friendly, and throws snowballs at enemies. Also melts in hot biomes.

Also, they spread snow by walking around. Nice.

One of the best things about Minecraft is how publicly the game is being developed.

Four hours later, he added:

The snowmen are ridiculously suicidal, throwing snowballs at creepers and spiders, annoying them to attack the snowmen. It’s funny. :D

Then, an hour later:

Sorry, did I say “snow man”, I meant to say “SNOW GOLEM”, of course.
