Throwing Knives 1.3_01
My second mod I've made for Minecraft: Throwing Knives!
Throwing knives are a ranged weapon, much like the bow, but more accurate and deadly. They do 4 hearts of damage and go 25% farther and faster than arrows. Due to this, however, they are more costly to make than arrows. The crafting recipe requires 2 leather, a gold ingot and an iron ingot. This yields 2 throwing knives. Next I plan on adding craftable poison, to poison the blade (and possibly other things) to increase its damage.
The soil represents leather.
  
Credit goes to my friend Mootkip for the idea and the textures.
The recipe may not make much sense; so if you have a better, reasonable recipe, tell me and I'll change it up.

Gatherer (Amnesia monster) 1.3_01
This is the first mod I've ever made for Minecraft (and the first thing I've made in Java).
It spawns at a slightly lower light level than basic mobs, it does not burn in the sun, it is difficult to outrun once it's chasing you, and does a decent amount of damage. However, it doesn't spawn as often as the other mobs (With the exception of the spider jockey, of course).
I like the throwing knives, but when used with 303 arrows, crafting the dagger creates egg arrows (???)
I tried deleting eggarrow class from 303arrows but it still happened. It worked fine when I removed 303 arrows, but that's not a permanent solution. Any ideas to remove the conflict?
Deleting ALL egg arrow files worked. 303 + Throwing Knives now work together
*You REALLY need the flipping dagger motion from 2X2 crafting so they don't look like arrows and- they are nearly invisible from behind. Can they be thickened somehow?
But they work! And they kill fast! So great job!
Thanks; I plan on improving on the throwing knives look after I finish weapon poison, which will allow the poisoning of throwing knives and arrows. I'm not sure how I would go about thickening it, but I'll try that as well.
Don't know why they would conflict with 303's arrows but I'll see if I can fix that.
