Fix Version/s: 20w45a
Mob Spawners do not render a "mini" mob visual for the following entities:
- Polar Bear
- Zombified Piglin
- Evoker Fangs
See attached images for expected (Elder Guardian) vs unexpected (Zombified Piglin). When the game attempts to render them but fails, it also produces an error message in the console over and over again, which can potentially cause a lot of lag in the world, especially when lots of spawners are used.
What I expected to happen was...:
A "mini" version of the mob to be rendered in the middle of the spawner cube.
What actually happened was...:
No "mini" version of the mob is rendered inside the cage.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Place down a spawner
- Modify the spawner's block data to the desired mob (can be done through commands or by right-clicking on the cage with the desired mob spawn egg).
Note: The spawner does spawn the desired mob. The issue is only visual – you cannot tell what kind of spawner it is just by looking at it.
