Since this mod inspired me to read up on Druid lore, I came up with some ideas that are in line with its theme. I'd do it myself but my modding skills are so bad I'd probably set my laptop on fire just from attempting this. Anyways, just wanted to share my ideas:
- Raven - seen as a messenger between worlds. Therefore it will occasionally spawn from a Nether Portal. Killing one is bad luck (you lose hearts when you hit one). However, it will sometimes drop black feathers on their own. The feathers are infused with glowstone (imagine the glowstone dust from the Nether getting naturally caught up in them) that can be used to craft a "raven's lantern".
- Raven's Feather - Can only be obtained by raven's shedding them. Killing them will not result in obtaining a feather, nor meat. This is because they are magical creatures and it is bad luck to kill them.
- Raven's Lantern - Crafted with 4 raven's feathers in a diamond shape. Creates a black, feathery sphere that emits light at the level of glowstone.
- Raven's Rope - Crafted with 3 raven's feathers, placed vertically on a crafting table. Provides 3 1-block tall ropes. These ropes are thin and black, can be attached to solid objects from below to be used to hang Raven's Lanterns.
That's really really cool that our mod inspired you to read up on Druid lore! =) and yeah, these ideas are awesome, I'm definitely going to put these on to the todo list and maybe we'll eventually get to them, thank you. I've definitely wanted ravens for a while I think and these are great to go along with them.
I've added Druidry to my personal 1.7.10 mod pack and so far, I really love it! No longer do I have to worry about crafting all my wooden planks into sticks on accident since I now have a near endless supply of them, and the Alex zombies look great! I also stumbled across a Unicorn and squealed with delight when I did. It's labeled as a horse when I hover over it, but are they capable of breeding with Minecraft horses?
Also, I have discovered the Fay Wand. That thing is too much power for a cat lover to have, so after nearly crashing my game from overusing it, it has been safely put away in its own chest.
Anyway, I love the mod so far, and I really hope to see you continue to do an awesome job! I'd love to see more!
Hey! Thank you for enjoying the mod. Unicorns don't seem to be able to breed with vanilla horses after testing. lol, the Fay Wand is basically my favorite item >.>
Hmm, we will look into that, thank you. I'm glad you enjoy the mod!
I really like this mod; it's nice to see something that isn't post-endgame and is well-integrated with itself. :-)
That said, I am using it with a bunch of other mods, and I was wondering if there was a way to turn off just one recipe in the crafting. The fried egg recipe overrides Eggy Goodness, which uses a straight cooked egg as the basis for several other recipes. :-(
Thanks! Yeah we've seen a few Minetweaker files that disable that too, lots of mods seem to do that already! We can look into adding an official config option.
Seeing an odd issue. Running version druidry(2016.9.26)(1.9.4).jar on a 1.10.2 Forge Server (forge version 1.10.2-12.18.-2114) and it seems to break the /help command on the server. The client /help works fine, but on the server it is generating a class cast exception:
java.lang.ClassCastException: net.minecraft.server.dedicated.DedicatedServer cannot be cast to net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer

This includes HelpFixer-1.10.2-1.4.15, not sure if that is the cause, but without helpfixer other mods are broken.
That's weird! We will look into this issue too, thanks for the report.
