Don't worry, this mod will be updated!
If the update is boring download flans mod, its coming in Christmas.
I hope its SMP supported!
I also like this mod, hes final day of school is a December. So don't ask him to update it all the time, its spamming.
If you ever need help designing the sprites just ask me. I'm pretty OK and designing things like that and because of you I was inspired to start my own mod! (I don't work on it, but I'm going to do it in some of my free time).
