    I know this question sounds stupid, and it is. But for some reason, I cannot get custom Phantom mobs to randomly spawn. And yes, I am in the random mobs folder, in the ExampleRandomSpawns.yml, where I filled this out:

    Mobtype: DarkPhoenix (Which is really the Phantom)
    Worlds: world
    Chance: 30
    Priority: 1
    Action: REPLACE

    Why won't it spawn? I know Phantoms only spawn if the player hasn't slept for over 3 nights, but is there a way to bypass this?

    Thanks, SilverSkele

    I find that the replace function replaces only the mob types that the mob is, so in your case it should be replacing Phantoms when Phantoms spawn. For testing you could try swapping the mob type to like zombie to see if your mob actually spawns. Also I believe Chance can only go up to the value 1 being that 1 = 100% chance and like 0.5 = 50% chance etc and Priority 1 is the lowest priority. You should change priority to something like 100. 128 I believe is the highest priority

    I personally have started utilizing the MythicMobs randomspawning mechanic and the action: ADD. It gives you more control over how they spawn. You do need to setup the RandomSpawning in the base config for this to work properly and you will want to set spawning conditions so that they don't spawn 24/7
