  1. Is it possible to change a mob Entity's UUID to something else?

  2. Why would you want to do this? o_O
     
  3. Also, the player UUID is protected you can't change it
     
  4. You say "can't" like you're just asking me to prove otherwise

  5. Thanks for the input. You are right that there are better solutions to my ideas. I was just wondering how editable the UUIDs are - especially for mobs.

    I ended up creating a HashMap that maps the current UUIDs onto other IDs I have stored elsewhere.

  6. I use a mob handling system that handles pretty similarly.
     
  7. They're universal IDs for a reason, changing them wouldn't make sense.

    Storing a reference of a UUID under your specific ID is ideal.
