In the light of many murders in Freedonia, Steve was called upon to discourage would-be assassins.

A historical feature added early in the timeline of Freedonia, it was discontinued in 2011. It was finally brought back in March 2015 with the availability of new mob spawning technology.

History

Original Steve Police (Pre-Beta 1.8)

Added by a drunken getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot on a whim one evening. When a player killed another in PVP combat, ten Steve mobs (non-player characters with no name tags and the default skin) spawned at the site of the kill, and usually proceeded to attack the attacking player.

If a moderator or admin killed another player in PVP, the steve police did usually not arrive on the scene. The mechanism behind this was rather messy, and also coded by a drunken SlowRiot on a different occasion.

Spider rider

As of 23 June 2011, one member of the Steve Police was promoted to Mounted Police. When a PVP death occured, nine ordinary steve police would turn up, led by a tenth steve riding a spider. Or attempting to ride it. His success was not guaranteed.

This added a hilarious police outfit to everyone's favorite feature of the Freedonia Server, the Steve Police. Although no longer a feasible modification, the steve skin is archived at [1].

Discontinuation

The original Steve Police was discounted after the Steve mob was removed by Notch in beta 1.8.

New Steve Police

A revamped and more advanced version of the Steve Police was brought back in March 2015, mainly under the direction of getplayerhead.sh?SnappyMuppetman&16.png SnappyMuppetman.

Five zombie pigmen with "Steve" heads and blue coloured leather armour, and the nametag "Officer Steve" spawn at the location of death. They are not initially aggressive, but if provoked they will retaliate swiftly and bloodily. They are armed with an enchanted wooden sword with Knockback III and Sharpness III, move slightly faster than ordinary pig zombies, and do not drop any loot or experience on death.

The choice of pig zombies was made due to the appropriateness of the classic comparison between the police and pigs.

When killed by a member of the Steve Police, the death message on IRC reads "<playername> got in trouble with the law."

Steve Police Station

Spider Rider

The spider riding steve police officer was added back into the group, though the officer is smaller than most and riding an equally small cave spider.
