    Okay... so I started this because I'm partial to champagne and palomino arabians, and, after some research was happy to discover that they and a bunch of other unusual colours were actually considered acceptable and even desirable in purebreds. So I made some, because I really wanted some. XD I also made a bunch of gypsy vanner textures for the clydesdales (If it ends up interfering with future plans for the mod I can exclude these) and painted the vardo red.


    Only by colour breeders (i.e. people who care more about colour than conformation, bloodlines, performance, etc.) - of course, not as big a deal in Minecraft as it is IRL ;) It's looking really good!

    Avii, I just came back here after a few months' break from mods other than FTB, and damn! You've done a lot of work. I love it. Even the thread looks great - very professional! Can't wait to get this re-installed and try it all out. Keep up the awesome work. I love this so much.

    The way it would work (driving or horseback) is you tap your forward key to get moving, and tap again to speed up (walk > trot > gallop). Your back key, if tapped, will slow you down (Gallop > trot > walk > reverse if key is held while on horseback). Of course, this means there is no hard-stopping from a gallop or trot.

    Your strafing keys would turn your vehicle or horse, just as it works for vehicles currently. Maybe hitting both at the same time will do a hard stop. Maybe there's a chance you could get your horse to rear and throw you ;3...

    Hitting another button will allow you to use a bow, but you won't be able to steer until you exit that mode. Mayhaps your horse will try and path for you (I know there're issues with them running into fences and walls until you take control as it stands.)


    Sounds good to me! I remember one of my favourite horse games when I was younger worked similarly to that. I think I'd rather that system, anyway.

    Hahaha, good point there. But the reason that Flowerchild backed out of forge was not because it was a bad idea, but because of variouse other reasons, such as personality diferances with a key developer, what course the api was following, ex (see the interview on the BTW post). I doubt there will be similar reasons to not use the official api, (he is not involved in its development, of course. Again see the interview on the post, it gives a much better explanation) and he believed in the vision of a common api in the first place.


    Yeah, I'm very hopeful for the official API. I just wish we knew when it was coming. At this rate we could die of old age waiting for it. ;)

    I have found a bug with optifine and BTW. If I install them together, the BTW blocks take on textures from vaniila blocks, like the axel when placed looks like it's made out of iron ore, the gear box looks like mossy stone on two sides and mostly invisible on the other sides until an axel is placed on it, which makes it look like obsidian. Lastly from what I saw, the block dispenser looked like tnt and stone slabs. I raged and removed optifine just to meet some lag with even minimum settings. Sorry if this has already been posted but if you know how to fix it please let me know. And no, installing a compatible texture pack didn't work, it just showed the texture packs versions of the blocks. Sorry about the wall of text but I had to explain it kind of clearly. Also, if you want I can have some pics up to show you what I mean by tomorrow afternoon.


    Ran into this today after updating BTW and Optifine (the latter from B2 to B3). I reverted back to B2 and all was right in the world again.

    @Zhuria, I'm guessing you use BTW as well? Yeah, I knew the Forge switch would be a bit unfortunate for some, but think of it this way: if not for Forge, there would be no Simply Horses at all from here on out for a while. Like I told Jehanum and Fishee, I've not abandoned a non-Forge version for Simply Horses, but it is put on hold for now.


    Yes, and I have a love affair with it, lol. As much as I love and live for horses, it just doesn't add the amount of content that BTW does. When I'm planning to make a world for the long-term and something that will hold my interest for a long time, I really can't imagine not playing with BTW!

    This is after Mo'Creatures and now Millenaire also switched to Forge, which were both a kick in the pants. Your mod was a happy alternative (edit to add: not that I prefer Mo'Creatures to yours. Actually I used to use both and disable the horses on Mo' because yours are better - so I wasn't horribly devastated when it switched to Forge first) to the former for me that was still compatible. And now my dreams are crushed.. Or put on hold ;p

    Don't get me wrong, I understand! And I'm very thankful you still have plans to do an ML version! I guess I just needed to vent. All these awesome mods switching to Forge makes me sad. In my heart.

    Keep up the good work, maybe some day we will live in a world where everything works with everything else XD

    Well the switch to Forge is depressing :/ No horses for me I guess.

    This really sucks, having to choose between my favourite mods. Argh

    @Zhuria Massive Respect from a noob horse person! Just learning to ride ^^. I'm glad you like the mod. I do plac (if possible) to have stables spawn in NPC villages, with a random chance of there being a Clydesdale (or less likely, other breeds) inside.


    I'm a month late coming back to this thread, but that sounds like a neat feature.

    After a hiatus of playing Minecraft, I've decided to give it another go with a different set of mods. I'm switching Mo' Creatures out for your mod because Mo' Creatures now uses Forge, and yours is superior IMO. I'll let you know what I think!

    I also wanted to offer my assistance - if you ever need help figuring out if something is accurate to reality, or have any questions about anything horse-related, shoot me a message! I have an absurd amount of horse knowledge in my brain from the past 14 years, would love to put it to some use related to gaming ;p

    I may also do a Randomobs texture set.. I definitely need ponies that look like mine IRL :)

    I got the flowing water and lava problem, and thought "ok, I'll work around it" but when I jumped into one of the waterfalls, my game crashed, and now I can't open that save. What the heck could be the reasoning for that?

    I guess I'll just restart with the modded version, but I'm afraid to jump into any water now.

    Oh, it uses Forge now? That's disappointing. I love this mod but I don't know if I can use it anymore.

    I also hate the addition of fishbowls. Fish tanks would be much better.. You are just teaching people that fishbowls are okay.. And they're not. They're abuse.

    How about you refrain from saying "North American winner" when the contest is only open to people in the USA. You got my hopes up.

    Massive respect from a fellow horse-person!

    My only suggestion is that it's not very realistic to change a horse's breed. I know vanilla cats do it too, but it's not great. Is there any way you can make the different breeds spawn in the wild and need to be tamed?

    That said, I will be keeping an eye on this mod, I love the look of these horses much more than the Mo' Creatures ones!

    There seems to be a new incompatibility with Mo' Creatures newest version, which was released yesterday.

    In my own (limited) testing, I've narrowed it down to something in the MoCreatures.zip file that goes in the \mod folder.

    BTW will work fine without Mo' Creatures. Mo' Creatures will work fine without BTW. Put them together, and it crashes at the main menu (before you load a world).

    Since they both work independently, I'm not sure where the best hope for a fix is.

    Anyway, these two mods used to work together in 1.1, so I didn't think it would hurt to bring it to your attention, in case there is something you were interested in adjusting, to make them happy again.


    I'm running BTW with Mo' Creatures (and a handful of other things) with no issues :)

    Oh I know, I couldn't do the items if my life depended on it so I'm glad someone else was willing to haha.

    I'll show all you guys what your stables might start to look like in the next week :)



    Aside from the camera-shy horse, that is :P


    Let me start off by saying I love the work you're doing and I'd never be able to do it (at least not this style)

    However (as someone who owns and spends a good deal of time with horses), the horses are waaaay off. I'm not really sure how to give you tips to improve them aside from looking at pictures, but right now they just look like random shapes stuck everywhere. I mean NO offense and I hope you don't take it that way! Just trying to help :)

    Well, I needed to get a few things in there for the BTB release, so I decided to take care of a few outstanding issues at the same time, including your creative-mode bug :)

    Is it working right now? I didn't have Millenaire installed to test.


    I just checked, and YES! The crash is gone :D Yaaay! Now I can feel safe knowing I am 100% crash-free. :P
