  1. I'm not sure if this has been suggested before, but since Halloween is growing nearer, I've had an idea for a Halloween Promo.
    There could be a horse egg that has a 50/50 chance of spawning either a skeleton or zombie horse. It could be named with some sort of "halloweenish" name (e.g. Caspar, Hades, Pluto, Pumpkin etc (Or my personal favorite, Nightmare (wink wink nudge nudge). The name would be coloured, like the other promo horses.
    The egg could be coloured orange and black, due to the usual Halloween colours :)
    It could have either just normal stats, or have an extremely low speed, around 40 or something (as speed, jump, and health are high in the other promo horses)

    I understand if It's not possible, but I thought I'd share it anyway :D
    I'm not sure if you could find a way to make it ride-able however :(
    Let me know if you think it's a good idea in the comments below, and if you have any suggestions (e.g. other names).

  2. I know it's a skeleton or zombie horse but is it really "Halloween"?
  3. I understand where you're coming from, but due to the Christmas horse, I thought that a Halloween horse would suit the theme :)
    Plus on Halloween, a lot of people tend to dress up as skeletons or zombies (at least they do where I live), and monsters are generally 'scary'
    However, you're entitled to your own opinion, and not everyone will like the idea.

  4. Out of curiosity, would it be possible to make the skeleton and zombie horses possible to ride?
    I want to know, so I can see if my suggestion is actually possible ^^
  5. Yes, it is possible. They are just retextured horses.
  6. Thats what I was thinking, but in normal minecraft, they're not rideable.
    However, the EMC team have altered things before, so I was seeing if that would be possible to change.
  7. I would absolutely love this! But chances of it ever happening are slim :(

  8. Aikar could probably make this happen. However, because skeleton and zombie horses will be a perk of the future cosmetic supporter rank, it is unlikely to occur because this would basically defeat the purpose of that. :)
  9. Ok, I was unaware that they would be apart of a supporter perk, but thanks for letting me know :)
  10. Also, do you know when that will be added into a supporter perk?
  11. As soon as Aikar is able to recreate the supporter system. He is currently trying to slowly transition into the new system by adding things such as fly flags, TNT use, etc., but Cosmetic Supporters and Normal Supporters will not be replacing the current ranks for a while still. :)
  12. Ok, thankyou :)
  13. Are these textures in particular somewhere in vanilla Minecraft coding or are other textures possible? Is it literally the texture from a skeleton pasted on a horse?
    Could there be some kind of Zombie Wolf pet instead? A choice between the skeleton cat, the zombie wolf, and the zombie-pigman-pig?
  14. +1
    like that casper will not be lonely anymore
  15. Zombie and skeleton horses are mobs that are in the coding, but that don't spawn naturally. Only admin can spawn them with a command. They have their own textures, so while zombie wolves and other mobs could be made with a texture pack, they're not like the horses, of which are meant to be in the game (ill put a picture below)

    Hope that helped! :D
  16. Thanks, makes sense. Well not really a close alternative then, if these are meant to be reserved for (one time?) supporters. That skeleton one is awesome.
    I guess they already used the jack-o-lantern for a promo, too.

    How about everyone just gets a wither? That's scary right?
  17. Sounds awesome!
  18. I think this is a pretty cool idea :) Even if we can't get a skeleton/zombie horse, a promo horse will be a nice change seeing as we've had a lot of tools and items recently :p
  19. We had 4 promom horses before :p
  20. I know, but the last promo horse was at Christmas :p And a Halloween horse would be so cool! Even if it can't be a skeleton/zombie horse, an all white horse called Caspar would be pretty awesome :3
