Brief note: This is my first mod for Minecraft. This mod requires Forge.
What this mod seeks to accomplish is to mitigate the rage inducing situations where you spot that precious ore, or are out for a stroll, when a horrible no good skeleton appears and ruins your day. You try valiantly to swim to meet the beastie head on in honorable combat but Sire Skellington wants nothing of it. Instead of being fair and engaging you in honorable melee combat the skeleton rains down the arrows upon you! You struggle with your sword but no avail! Skeleton knocks you back, laughs at your misery, and steals your epic treasures when you inevitably meet your demise.
While it won't make them afraid of water, they won't live too long in it.
Please direct all communications to this thread. Thanks!
Please also feel free to comment and/or critique the mod and my efforts. All I ask is that you do so in a way that is constructive. Double Thanks!
I can foresee already a problem with this mod: the skeletons in minecraft are coded so that during daytime, they seek shelter from the sunrays by hiding under trees or going into water ponds. You probably didn't change this behaviour, so they will just suicide like dumb idiots when the sun kicks in
I AM in favor of skeletons suicide like dumb idiots when the sun kicks in.
However... fair point. I'll take a look and see if it's not too terrible to alter the behavior to make them avoid water as well as / replacing the damage to them.
