Hoglins have been updated!!
They will be aggressive mobs that will be found in Crimson Forests in the Nether. Hoglins will attack players on sight, unlike Zombie Pigmen who require to be hit. Hoglins will drop pork and sometimes leather, so feel free to farm for some food in the nether! You will also be able to actually breed Hoglins by feeding them crimson fungi. Hoglins get hunted by Piglins and will be scared of warped fungi, just as Creepers are scared of cats!
Piglins have been added!!
Piglins are also an aggressive mob that live in the Nether that can also be located in Crimson Forests but can be found in the Nether Wastes too. Just like the Hoglins, they will attack on site. Piglins have a thing for gold and will be distracted by any golden item you throw at them. What better way to utilise their love of gold then to barter with them! Gold ingots are currency to Piglins and you can throw ingots at them or right-click them with an ingot to barter for various goods. If the Piglin manages to go through a Portal into the overworld, the Piglin will start to shake and turn into a regular Zombie Pigmen! Piglins do not like soul fire and zombified Piglins, and will run away from them!
