A chatting NPC is a type of NPC who can be talked to, saying up to four lines of dialogue. They come in many different varieties, each having different appearances and different lines of dialogue. They can also pick up seeds, potatoes, and carrots to replant them.
Chatting NPCs spawn naturally in villages, replacing Minecraft villagers. They can be created and edited with the use of an NPC editor. Within the editor, their names, skins, and dialogue can be modified.
