    Hi :)

    I'm in admin for running events on a remote tshock server:
    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?30183-Terraria-Boss-Kills-(BLUE-Server)

    Whenever I try and spawn in large biome mimics they always end up as corruption mimics (regardless of the ID used) with the message "<player> has spawned in Big Mimic x times" no mater what I try:

    e.g.
    1. /spawnmob 474 1
      Expected result: 1 crimson mimic spawns in
      Actual result: 1 corruption mimic spawns
    2. /spawnmob 475 2
      Expected result: 2 hallowed mimics spawn
      Actual result: 2 corruption mimics spawn
    3. /spawnmob 476 3
      Expected result: 3 jungle mimics spawn.
      Actual result: 3 corruption mimics spawn
    I believe this is a bug with the command, unless I'm missing something?
    Is there any way to spawn in specific biome mimics using commands (I know that hallowed mimics can be spawned in using keys of light).

    Thanks in advance :)

    For some reason since more than a year ago, when trying to spawn a mob with different variants (like zombies, demon eyes, slimes or even birds), whatever ID or name variant will always spawn the default mob for that branch. For instance, if you try spawning christmas zombies you will get the default zombie. If you try to spawn a crimson mimic you get the corruption one, if you try spawning a cardinal you get a bird and so forth. Asked about it on Slack a while ago but the issue was quickly forgotten. Don't know if it's a bug or something hardcoded to a Terraria update (started happening about the time Duke Fishron was introduced).

    It's likely there is a bunch of mobs that share the same ID, but use different names. As such to get the correct you'd need to spawn by name to get the correct mob (hopefully)

    So I guess this is just permanently busted eh? Can't seem to get any crim/corrupt mimics
