RandomSpawns give you complete control over how mobs are supposed to spawn in your worlds. You can fully customize where, how often, and how many mobs spawn, allowing for precise control over your mob spawns.
There are major randomspawn options that are important to distinguish between:
- The REPLACE action is used to replace mobs that are spawned by Minecraft's own random spawning system with your own mobs.
- This allows for full control over Minecraft's spawning system.
- If Minecraft's random spawners are turned off on your server (such as setting gamerule doMobSpawning false), this action will not do anything.
- The ADD action will utilize MythicMobs' own spawning algorithms which will, in a similar fashion to Minecraft's spawning system, generate random spawn points around players.
- However these spawn points, as opposed to Minecraft's, will be generated without any conditions allowing you to spawn mobs in any light level and at any location.
- Detailed configurations as to how these spawn points are generated can be found in MythicMobs' configuration file "config.yml".
- Please note Action: ADD only generates points around survival & adventure mode players and only if there is a location present.
- If a condition is used that needs an entity it will throw an exception. In case of the biome condition you can use the Biomes: option!
- For the Action: ADD to work, you will need to go to your plugins/MythicMobs/config.yml and set GenerateSpawnPoints to true!
- The Deny action can be used to prevent mobs from spawning.
- Any mob that matches the conditions of a RandomSpawn configured with DENY will not spawn.

Extra Options in config.yml
These options, located in MythicMobs' "config.yml"-file, are responsible for how SpawnPoints are generated on your server. It's best to use common sense when adjusting these values, as misconfigurations of this section may cause lag on your server.
