Bump means that the person you are talking to hasn't replied for a while, usually a day (24 hours.) GREAT! with your permission, I am starting the mod right now, as in right this second, links will be up in a bit. Anything else you would like to add?
Here is the link! I will PM you the password. To install the mod, right click and choose to open with any zip program you may have, (try to use winRAR), drag the warlords mod that's inside into your 'mods' folder, put in the password, switch the forge 1.8.9, and have fun playing! I only added a battleaxe for now, to give you a taste of what's coming, and to let you evaluate the mod so far and give me some feedback. In the next update I will add more weapons and a creative tab. (I will not add recipies for a while, or maybe not at all.)
Sorry, no, 1.7.10 doesnt even USE models. See, the textures in themselves are not 3D. if I just used those it would produce a flat ugly boring weapon. NOW, 1.8 utilizes things called models to render the texture in special ways and for many other functions like 3D textures. In 1.7.10, 3D textures are pretty much impossible. Sorry
