This is what it's supposed to be right Mevans?
Holy crows YOU DONE DID IT!!!!! WOOT!!!
I may have found the answer to the Optifine bug! After testing I noticed that with Optifine installed the mod didn't even make a LionKing.dat (where quest information is stored) so there's nowhere to even save the data, let alone reload it when you play the world again.
So this got me thinking, and I suddenly realised why Optifine stops the quests working.
Basically, in Minecraft all the dimensions are assigned a world, and the name of the Java class for these worlds is 'WorldServerMulti', except the Overworld with is just 'WorldServer'. Now when the Overworld, the Nether, the Pride Lands, etc. are all loaded, each world is being ticked, but I only want the quest updating and saving to be run once. So I check if the world being ticked is the Overworld - by seeing if its name is 'WorldServer' - and if so, run the quest code.
However Optifine replaces the standard world with a slightly different one, 'WorldServerOF' which works almost the same as a normal 'WorldServer' except that since it has a different name, the LK Mod doesn't recognise it, so the quest code is never run!
This is a huge breakthrough for me and for the mod and if all goes well I should have a final quest fix update out later today.
That's a great post, thank you for all the ideas! I like the idea of the elephant graveyard as its own dimension, but I'm not sure what kind of a strain it would put on the game, running 8 dimensions at once... we'll see, anyway. Coloured Zazus is also an interesting idea, it would bring more variety to the Pride Lands, and perhaps they could have different names too. Although I quite like how the Zazus drop certain feathers more rarely, but if there were different Zazus getting these feathers would become a lot easier.
The Star Realm quest should involve talking to Mufasa, since I do plan to put him there. For the Upendi quest I was thinking some kind of hyena boss, which you have to fight alongside Simba, Kovu and Kiara.
He can say that after you finish the quest. If you speak to him, there are a set of random phrases that he might come out with.
I actually had this idea ages ago right when I started the mod, but I honestly think it would get annoying having the same music play every day at the same time. There is a Circle of Life-inspired music track in the mod though, it's one of MinecraftUniverse's 5 music tracks.
I can't see the images you posted.
Are you using any other mods? Especially, Optifine? Because it's been reported to not work with Optifine. If so, can I get a list of your mods? I think that would help me a lot.
Edit: Yep, I just ran a quick test with Optifine installed: the quests and everything reset as soon as I loaded the world. And without Optifine, everything works fine. I'm also running my Lord of the Rings mod, so it's not other mods that's the issue, it's Optifine specifically.
This is progress, and I can work towards fixing it now.
Ok. I'll have to switch over to another site, perhaps Dropbox or something, which is what I used to use but then the music files made the download too big.

Can you tell me the exact procedure you used to install it.
And every other mod that you have installed?

Call me crazy but it looks like in the picture you are still hovering the item over the box and haven't actually placed the item in the crafting box yet.it doesn't look like the sanded wood on the far right is actually 'in' the crafting box same for the pipe screen.
I doubt that is the case but it looks like it haha.
