There's this old mod called Liquid Enchantments that allowed you to put potion enchantments on weapons and armor, but it doesn't work in 12.2. Can anyone remake the mod or update it to 12.2? if so, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I did not expect to see this post one bit. The reason it didn't get updated to 1.12.2 is twofold:
1.9 changed potions to be one single item with NBT tags. 1.12 completely re-wrote crafting, which doesn't support items with NBT by default. I just couldn't figure out how to use vanilla potions in a crafting recipe.
I started working as a professional software dev (not Minecraft related) and hard more work than I had time!
Lucky that I got bored and started looking for new mod ideas on the forum. I'll have another look into Liquid Enchanting for you
Can't promise any results, I took several attempts at porting it to 1.12.2 before giving up in November 2017, so I still might not be able to beat it.
I've got the bones of it working! Took some creative coding, but I've got all of the potion / armor combinations working now. Still to do is beacon effect items, swords, then updating the config to work with the new crafting recipe. Might be able to get it done by new years.
