Ultimate Unicorn Mod Coming for MineCraft 1.9.4 and 1.10.

Good news - Just did some multiplayer testing on my current build of The Ultimate Unicorn Mod for version 1.9.4 of MineCraft, and things appear to be working as they should.  I had to change around some code for flying and swimming horses, which took a bit of time to figure out, but it appears to be working now.  I'm hopeful I will be able to release the 1.9.4 version next Friday.

As for 1.10, I haven't gotten very far in porting it yet, but from my understanding it's not that different from 1.9.4, so I have my fingers crossed that it will be an easy port.  I'll get it out as soon as I can.

Moving forward, after the porting is done, there's a lot of clean up and document updating I want to do.  One big change I want to make is to fix custom unicorns so that I don't need to make a new release every time someone orders one.  This would also make it so that new custom unicorns would become available in the mod within minutes of being ordered, which I see as a big plus.

Another thing I need to fix in the short term is that I host some of the mod's assets (like the mod files you download) on Google Drive.  Google Drive is disabling web serving at the end of August, which means I need to find a new place to put some of my files.  This either means I need to find another free service, or start paying for a service to host files.  If you have suggestions, let me know!

After that, I'm looking forward to new breeds and other exciting features.

  1. One thing to watch for in 1.10.x is a bug that showed up on the Forge server when it was updated to 1.10... Things like the Tinker's Construct Hammer, which in earlier versions broke a 3x3x1 area of blocks stopped working due to a minor change of some kind.

    Here's the episode where they udated from 1.9.4 to 1.10:

    I don't know if this is applicable but if it is it would occur with Destrier (sized) block breaking.

  2. Suggestion for Nighticamps (or any horse that is fireproof and can swim) to be able to swim in lava like water? I worked hard to breed a Peganighticamp for nether exploration, but she only sinks to the bottom of lava pools.

    1. I actually had some look changing some settings with Google Drive, but if I need to, I'll check out Drop Box. Haven't been very active with the mod lately because I've been really busy, and haven't had much free time. However, there is still more I want to do, so I haven't dropped the project or anything. :)

  5. Why there's no new update? Is this mod abandoned?

    1. There has been an update or two, just minor ones. The mod takes time, and besides having a busy life at times (like now), I have also have other projects.

      Sometimes things move slowly for a while. The kirin came after a lull, and at some point, I'll post details about the next big update, and maybe a poll to help select a new breed. I don't intend to abandon the mod for a long time.
