Pumpkin Catapult


"Fling flaming pumpkins of exploding death at entities!"

This is a silly Autumn idea I came up with. In a nutshell, it acts like a defensive tower (similar to an Iron Golem) in that it savagely flings exploding pumpkin bombs at enemy entities. It does not fire at players, armorstands, item frames, and a few other misc entities. The device tends to be very explosive!

To craft this evil thing, drop one stick, one log, one diamond, and one pumpkin on the ground. If you wish to remove this explosive device, throw a diamond at it.

Included in the world is a sand biome I developed the systems in as well as a "mushroom/forest" biome if you want to play around with it in a more practical situation. I find that having a normal vanilla world just creates too many entities, and the system begins to boggle under the weight of tracking so many entities.
