So what does the 1.7.10 version have? My friend is still making modpacks for that branch but judging by the last time it was updated on the download page I'm kind of doubtful there's much to it. :<
Well, the 1.7.10 version has everything completed except the chocobo whistle. Therefore, I would prolly just disable the recipe with minetweaker, since it will not be completed more than likely. However, this mod for 1.7.10 is finished basically, and is really well done for the most part. Even if it isn't updated in 1.7.10 any longer, the stopping place for it is very clean. The only things you won't have are the 1.8's different eggs for each chocobo, and the hassle of them running away unless you are wearing chocodisguise, if I read his notes right.
Note: Minetweaker ties loose ends with mods such as the chocobo whistle(useless item) allowing you to disable its recipe, and preventing having a useless item in your world. Its purpose was never finished in 1.7.10, and I doubt it will be anytime soon in 1.8. 1.8 mods are basically all still in beta for a lot of things..
So the chocobo eggs all look the same despite what color they'll hatch into? I guess that might be a little annoying to deal with but could be worse.
Okay, maybe that should be adjusted..I second that notion. Same color for all the eggs? This is 1.8 right? 1.7.10 has multiple colored spawn eggs but that's it. You are referring to 1.8's eggs right? What the new version really needs is a silver chocobo from FFXIII-2/Lightning Returns, and make that the new best chocobo type..they are supposed to be the rarest color, and fastest breeds afterall..or at least I think that is what the games had stated.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Chocobo's breed in 1.7.10. They do not lay eggs, however apparently there IS a way to get eggs in 1.8. The spawn eggs in the menu exist just like other mobs etc. but that is about it. 1.7 does have purple nether-themed chocobos, you can find them in The End. They will go through the portal after beating the Ender Dragon.
Not having eggs is a little disappointing but I imagine coding them is probably a hassle. Also considering how fast my friends usually destroy the Ender Dragon's day we'll probably have the purple chocos running around before golden.
hi, just started using your mod a couple days ago in the 1.7 version and ive found that the cake doesnt make the babies grow up at all, and yes ive tamed them first. is this a known bug? i couldnt find anything in the last three pages or on the original post
edit: also the chicobos take way too long to grow into their adult forms. waaaay too long
I'm experiencing a lot of bugs with the 1.8 version. To name a few...
- all chocobos go one speed, and that's stupid fast.
- green chocobo doesn't climb
- babies get stuck in blocks constantly and won't stay in their pens when they grow up.
- looked everywhere in the nether for purple chocobos. no cigar
- CHOCBOS SPAWN EVERYWHERE. WAY more than the chocopedia describes there should be.
- tried riding a chocobo in lan and crashed
- feathers dropped by chocobos cannot be picked up
- slain chocobos will not drop meat
I admit that some of these things can most likely be fixed in the config (players should not have to fix the config in order to have this mod work properly, maybe update the default settings??), but most of the core functions of this mod are really buggy and make playing this mod more trouble than it's worth. This is a super popular mod, and the idea is awesome please fix it.
Having all of the same problems with 1.8 version.
I do hope they get fixed. I adore this mod so much.
He's working on Pixelmon? That mod is probably sucking up all of his time
Maybe he'd consider putting the source of this mod up on Github for others to continue though.
