I would like to update for 1.8.9, yes, but I can't say when. I've been busy with other things lately. Also, so much has changed with TC5 that I can't just make a direct port.
I'm also tempted to work on one of my other mod ideas. Perhaps I'll do some of that to get up to speed on 1.8.9.
I hadn't thought of the redesigning you would have to do with the new golem mechanics, my mistake. Take your time, I would rather it drop after its taken all the time it needs. Thanks for responding, again love your mod!
