(9/16/14) - Exciting times(?) So much going on lately - 1.8 drops with a ton of new things to play with, then Bukkit stuff and now the Microsoft acquisition. If/when Forge is updated I intend to bring my mods up to date as well. I can't believe it's been over 3 years since this thread was started. I don't know what the future holds but making and sharing these mods with everyone has been quite an unforgettable experience.
["Permission" to use my mods in your mod compilations] You don't need it! Please feel free to include my mods in your mod packs!
Old Baby Animals Mod Info This is basically for providing background info - Except for the squickens it's all in vanilla now with minor differences I do not plan to update this version anymore. The extensive README file contains pretty much all the info needed.
Baby Animals Model Swapper for 1.6.4 Release Replaces the vanilla baby models with the models I created for the original Baby Animals Mod. Model Swapper does not have any of the functionality of the Baby Animals mod, it only changes the look of the baby animals. You still interact with them the same way as you would the vanilla animals.
Squickens Mod for 1.6.4 Release Squickens are a cross between chickens and squid. I added this to the old baby animals mod as a sort of joke so that you could have a pet squid that followed you around. I ended up liking them quite a bit. Maybe I'm alone in that sentiment. Anyway, they do not spawn naturally so they can't take over your world. Once you have created two adult squickens you can breed them using raw fish, their favorite food. The adults will give you an ink sac once in awhile the same way chickens drop eggs. Otherwise they behave like chickens and can be lassoed/farmed like the rest of the animals.
Installation and Instructions:
FORGE 1.6.4 and later - Drop the jar file into "mods" in your .minecraft folder -OR- No Forge or pre-1.6.4 - Backup your minecraft.jar. It wouldn't hurt to back up your saves folder, either. Unzip the downloaded Baby Animals Model Swapper file. Open minecraft.jar using your preferred compression software (7-zip, WinRAR, etc.) Copy the .class files and the 'mob' folder into minecraft.jar. Delete META-INF if it exists. Run Minecraft.
Compatibility Add any of my mods at your own risk, back up your jars and saves, I won't be held responsible for failure to read directions, so on and so forth. Mods that change the original animals will likely have issues with Model Swapper. If you are having trouble with other mods check the ForgeModLoader-client- log file in your .minecraft folder. It will tell you if there are problems. Model Swapper Affected Classes
