Talk:Snow Golem

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


It is possible for a Snow Golem to be naturally generated in an Ice Plains Spikes biome due to the changes made in the 1.8.1 update. This being that Snow Golems can now generate sideways. Snow blocks naturally generate across the surface of the biome and if a pumpkin was to generate next to two horizontal snow blocks then a Snow Golem will naturally spawn.

This is evident in the seed -8194753951739883801 where if you travel to the co-ordiantes x= 995400 y= 72 z= 97344 a Snow Golem will spawn next to a Lake structure.

Note: Teleporting direct to 995400 72 97344 will not work as for some reason the terrain generates differently after doing so. In order to guarantee finding the snow golem you must teleport somewhere where the co-ordiantes 995400 72 97344 are out of range of your render distance. For example if you were using two chunks as your render distance you could teleport to 995300 72 97344 and then travel to 995400 72 97344 and the Snow Golem will spawn.

No Mo' Sno'?[edit]

Snow golems in 1.8.8 don't seem to make trails of snow like they used to. Is it based on light level? I built a snow golem in a creative world near a cave with zombies in it in a plains biome, and it went for them, but didn't leave snow until it actually got into the cave itself. On the surface, built another, no snow. Got snow in the extreme hills, taiga, and taiga hills biomes during the day, but taiga indicates colder areas... --Azaram (talk) 21:28, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Snow is only produced in cold and snowy biomes, plus the occasional medium biome (any biomes with a temperature less than 0.8). For some reason it's not listed on the article though. KnightMiner t/c 21:45, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Pumpkin Helmet?[edit]

The end of the Behavior section states: "Snow golems wear their pumpkin as a helmet, just like the player does," but I used the command "/entitydata @e[type=SnowMan] {}" and the ArmorItems tag did not have a pumpkin in it, even though the golem was visibly wearing a pumpkin. So is there any way to summon an already sheared snow golem?

--MCweb (talk)

I can confirm that /entitydata doesn't indicate any difference in NBT data between sheared and non-sheared snow golems .. this is interesting. I think there are a lot of mob features that NBT doesn't represent. Like an Iron Golem holding a flower, or particular AI states like a wolf shaking after having left the water. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 16:49, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Wrong Snow Golem history[edit]

On 1.10, you could shear Snow Golems, WHY EVERYONE THINKS YOU COULD SHEAR SNOW GOLEMS ON 1.11?!-- 16:20, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

How is the history wrong then? It states that the ability to shear them was added in 1.9, and that this was essentially improved upon in 1.11. – DelboyDylan (talk|contribs) 17:33, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Cold Biomes[edit]

Can anyone tell me or put on the page what biomes support snow from snow golems?--Pxlop860 (talk) 08:51, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
