First off, I just wanted to say what a huge fan I am of both this and your Minions mod! I just recently discovered both, and I just wanted to thank you for finally allowing me to feel like an evil overlord in Minecraft!
If you'd allow it, I would love to make some HD 'Pet Bats' textures to add as mod support for my texturepack, vonDoomCraft!
Also, I could always make the eyes yellow (as with your defaults) but because the HD textures give such a larger canvas, I was wondering what you prefer I do to differentiate between normal bats and pet ones?
I was thinking maybe little skeletal bats? Or little hearts on their chests? Or even just the yellow eyes? (Maybe a pink bat, for the ladies?)
Anyways, here's a picture of my current normal bat texture, to give you some idea of what I'm working with:
I'd love to hear any thoughts you might have! And thanks again for the wonderful mods!
