    Sower Monument Complete! Phew!

    That was a tough one. Definitely harder than Corona Trials. I think I ended up with 62 deaths...!

    In regards to the mechanics you tried, I really noticed the different spawning in the final area. (more discussion on that in the spoilers, with minor spoilers)

    Having a dark space around the "outside" of the mansion, with no mobs anywhere, forcing them to spawn just in the final hole, proved to make that area even more difficult. Sneaky!

    I think I forgot about the ability to spam the sword which probably showed in the death count ;) The food mechanic was good - its always satisfying when food goes straight to your hearts. Although I'm not sure I ever made sense of the food bar replacement.

    Also calling it a "mini" map is definitely selling it short - it ended up taking me over 14 hours to complete (37 episodes, around 22 mins each, plus lots done off camera). That's not much less than what it took to complete Corona Trials (40 episodes). I think it would be more descriptive to classify it as at least a half-ctm, and even that may not be quite right.

    Despite all those deaths though, I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was very challenging. Thank you so much for all your hard work! I'm looking forward to trying out Calamity Canyon soon.

    Hi render. Just wanted to say thanks for the maps - I'm loving Corona Trials. Three episodes in! Thanks for doing such a great job - I always admire the effort map makings go to!

    (Shameless lets play plug in spoilers...)

    posted a message on ObsTrophies - Trophies for your favourite Mod Mobs!

    (Remember to get ObsCore here as well! It's required for ObsTrophies to work!)

    What is ObsTrophies?

    ObsTrophies adds Trophy drops for mobs added by other Mods. Currently it adds Trophies for nearly all Advent of Ascension mobs, all Lycanite's Mobs, most Twilight Forest Mobs, all Animals+ Mobs, most DivineRPG Mobs, all Natura Mobs, most Ender Zoo mobs, all Dark Menagerie mobs, most Mutant Creatures mobs, most Erebus mobs and most Betweenlands mobs. Even more Mod compatibility is planned. ObsTrophies is inspired by OpenBlocks' trophies, Headcrumbs, Twilight Forest and Advent of Ascension, all of which add trophies or statues as rewards for defeating mobs.

    Too Many Words! Show me a video!

    Ok! Check in the spoiler! More videos available on my Youtube Channel

    What Mobs does it add Trophies for?

    ObsTrophies adds Trophies for:

      • nearly all Advent of Ascension mobs: Hunter mobs, NPCs and Minions included! There are no Trophies for Bosses as Advent of Ascension already has statues for those, and none for Pixons.
      • all Lycanite's mobs
      • most Twilight Forest mobs (including some bosses)
      • all Animals+ mobs
      • all DivineRPG mobs except bosses (DivineRPG already adds statues for bosses)
      • all Natura mobs
      • all Dark Menagerie mobs
      • most Mutant Creatures mobs (all Mutants, not pets or Spider Pig)
      • all Ender Zoo mobs except the Fallen Steed
      • nearly all Erebus mobs (including bosses)
      • nearly all Betweenlands mobs
      • All Abyssalcraft mobs (including bosses)
      • most Aether II mobs
      • most Mowzies Mobs
      • all Exotic Birds mobs

    Here is just a sample!

    Example ObsTrophies

    How do I get Trophies?

    To get a trophy simply kill a mob that has a trophy and there is a chance it will drop one. The chance is determined by how the mob is killed and who kills it. ObsTrophies adds some special swords to increase your chances of getting a trophy.

    Expand to see your chances

    • If a mob dies by any means other than a (real) player it has a 1% chance to drop a trophy
    • If a player kills a mob with a weapon other than a sword (e.g with a Bow and Arrow), it has a 2% chance to drop a trophy
    • If a player kills a mob with nearly any sword it has a 5% chance to drop a trophy
    • If that sword has Looting I on it, the chance increases to 8%
    • Looting II, the chance is 10%
    • Looting III, the chance is 15%
    • If a player uses one of ObsTrophies' special swords, the chance is 30%
    • with Looting I, 35%
    • with Looting II, 40%
    • with Looting III, 50%
    • If a player uses one of ObsTrophies' super special swords, the chance is 80%
    • with Looting I, 85%
    • with Looting II, 90%
    • with Looting III, 100% - you are guaranteed to get a Trophy!

    What are these Special and Super Swords and how do I get them?

    ObsTrophies adds some swords to help you improve your chances of getting a trophy. The particular sword to use

    depends on the Mod the Mob belongs to and what chance you want to have. Each sword requires you to craft the hilt and blade separately, before crafting them together into the final sword.

    Here's the stats for them and how to craft them:

    DivineRPG sword recipes

    The Erebus Swords

    Betweenlands Swords

    I can't remember all those numbers!

    Thats ok! Each sword has a tooltip with the Mod to use the sword on and the chances of a trophy drop, with and without looting.

    What else do the Trophies do?

    Other than look pretty, right clicking a Trophy will play the Mob's sound! Scare your friends!

    You can also resize your trophies! Shift Right Click will increase the trophy size, Shift Left Click will decrease it.

    Trophies will also react to redstone. Give them a redstone signal and they will play the Mob's sound. Scare your friends even more!

    You can add a trophy stand to your trophy:

    • Right-click a trophy with an Oak Wood Slab
    • Then right-click with nearly any block and the texture of the block will be used on the stand
    • Most vanilla and Modded blocks can be used
    • Slab and Block are not consumed
    • Break the trophy to remove the stand

    How do I install the mod?

      2. Download ObsCore from here

    Can you add Mob X from Mod Y?

    Probably! Leave a suggestion. Don't worry if I don't respond - I am reading your comments! You just may find the trophy in the next update. Keep an eye on my Youtube Channel for previews!

    Can I use this in a Modpack?

    Yes! Let me know which one so I can have a sticky beak!

    How does the mod work?

    Thanks to the awesomeness of Forge, all I need to store with the trophy is the entity id. Then I can just say "Hey Minecraft! Draw this mob here!". That's a pretty big over-simplification, but essentially its what it boils down to. Big thanks to OpenBlocks - it is open source and helped me figure out the render side of things (everything else I knew how, but that part is pretty important!). All trophies also only take up a single block ID.

    Here is an idea I have for the recipes for the Alternate Bows. You don't have to use it. But just an idea.

    Nice! Good balance with the recipes. I'd better do some research into bows!

    I've added a list of mods that I'm planning to integrate with to the op, including all the suggestions you've made so far. I've probably forgotten some even from my list so leave more suggestions! I'm also in the middle of integrating DivineRPG as we speak, however the rest of my weekend is booked up so it will still be a while off for the release. But here's a preview

    posted a message on AoA--25 New Dimensions• 330 Mobs• 27 Bosses• Skills• Quests• 600+Items [LARGE Bugfix Update, May 2018]

    Hi Xolova, Love the mod mate - still haven't explored all the current dimensions so no rush on the new ones!

    I made a resource pack that puts the boss textures on their respective statues. I think it looks better, and shows off the detail of the models and textures which are missed with just the gray stone texture. Gold statues are unchanged. I've had a request by a viewer to release the resource pack for download. But it does use your boss art so I wanted to check with you first. Would it be ok? Not sure where I'd host the pack, but I won't use any adfly or similar money-making links with it.
