Ultimate Unicorn FAQ and Troubleshooting

Question 1

My pegasus (or unicorn, destrier, nighter, or crossbreed) won't let me mount him when I right click on him.  What can I do?

Answer 1

I've sometimes had problems mounting a horse (or unicorn or pegasus, etc) right after summoning or breeding, because it is not full grown. Unfortunately, in Minecraft 1.8, the young horses look a LOT like adult horses, just a little smaller.

Try feeding the pegasus some apples (golden apples are best), and try again. Feeding him a bunch of golden apples is even better, sine he'll like you more, and be easier to tame (and thus less likely to dump you from a great height while you are trying to tame him).

Question 2

Since installing your mod, my jump button does not work.  How do I fix it?

Answer 2

This is caused by a bug in an earlier version of the mod that changed a configuration setting. Because the configuration setting was changed, the problem can still happen after you have updated to the latest version.  Thankfully, it is easy to fix.

To fix this problem, first make sure you have the latest version of the Ultimate Unicorn mod.  Then, after starting Minecraft, click on the "Options..." button to bring up the options screen.  Next, click on the "Controls" button.  Scroll down until you see the "key.ascendPegasus" key binding.  Set it to a free key that is not the same as the Jump key! Personally, I like to use the 'V' key, but you're free to use whatever key you like.

Question 3

I just ordered a custom unicorn, but you didn't send me anything!  How do I get it?

Answer 3

I put out an update every Friday (and sometimes more often). Your new custom unicorn will show up in the next update after you create him, most likely on that Friday.  To get your custom unicorn, you need to download that new update and install it.  Once you do that, you can name your horse using a name tag and an anvil, and he will get your custom skin and powers!

Your custom unicorn will be in all future updates.

  2. The mobs are invisible for me, you can hear them, but not see them or do anything with them

    1. This is probably happening because of a conflict with another mod. I would recommend you try the mod out by itself, and see if it works. If it does, there is another mod that is probably making Minecraft look for the mob textures in the wrong place.

      After you see that it works, you can then try to add in mods until you find the one that is conflicting. I would much appreciate it if you post the name of any mod that is causing problems with the Ultimate Unicorn mod!

    2. Not the same commenter, but it does work without other mods. One specific problem, however (and I'm uncertain if it matters much in helping ferret out the problem), is that only the person running the server is unable to see the horses. Anyone else on the server can see them.

    4. I had the same problem when I was using other mods and discovered that Orespawn caused the problem for me. Hope it helps.

    1. Have you tried running Minecraft with just this mod? It could be that it is conflicting with another mod you have.

      If you know how, you could create a profile that points to a different directory with only this mod installed. I've found that to be helpful if I don't want to mess with all the other mods I have installed in my main profile. (I should put up instructions on how to do this).

  4. I get a blank screen when I try to use this mod. I've tried all of the variations for forge versions . I get the game music, but black screen? Does anyone have insight on this?

    thx

    1. Weird. I don't know what would be causing that. Are you using only this mod? That's the first thing I would try.

  5. I downloaded the mod with Forge and it popped up on the mods menu in Minecraft, but it crashes my game. Can you help me? It's the only mod I've downloaded.

    1. Hmm. What versions of Minecraft, Forge, and the mod are you running? Does Minecraft pop up a message indicating where things went wrong? If I could see that, it would be very helpful for determining where the problem is.

    2. I'm running into the same issue. Below is the info I can offer:

      Minecraft Server 1.9
      Forge-1.9-12.16.1.1887
      Ultimate Unicorn Mod 1.9-1.4.11

      I'm not a programmer, so I may be on the wrong track, but I've found something potentially useful. I can either paste or send a copy of the "latest.log" from my server, but the line with the exception listing includes the following:

      Encountered an unexpected exception
      net.minecraft.util.ReportedException: Exception ticking world

      (Bunch of "at" lines lacking "caused by" sections, then)

      net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.run(MinecraftServer.java:467) [MinecraftServer.class:?]
      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source) [?:1.8.0_91]
      Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/mojang/realmsclient/gui/ChatFormatting
      at com.hackshop.ultimate_unicorn.mobs.EntityMagicalHorse.(EntityMagicalHorse.java:154) ~[EntityMagicalHorse.class:?]

      (and so on with more "Entity" type listings)

      Again, I'm not a programmer, but is this a missing dependecy regarding the "realmsclient" data? Since I'm not running my server on Realms, maybe that's causing issues? Also, to be fair, it's my first Forge server. Still figuring things out.

  6. Is it possible run this mod on a dedicated server (for Lan play) I've tried it on a 1.9 forge server but the only things that show up are the items and i cannot spawn unicorns etc.

    1. Yes, you can. There was a bug that was preventing a server from working correctly with the mod, but that should be fixed now. Let me know if it still doesn't work with the latest version of the mod.

    2. I have this same server problem. Works great in single player mode. Mod loads on server just fine, then when you try to spawn a unicorn, the egg is grey and nothing happens. So sad... such a super cool mod.

  8. There seems to be some weird log spam when using this mod with Journeymap, something about "Invalid UUID String: Skeleton". It appears to happen when Journeymap is trying to get the icons for the horses.

    1. I haven't used Journeymap. I don't often test with other mods, but if I find the time, I'll check it out.

  11. For some reason my MC server crashes any time I use version 1.5.10 for 1.10.2. I ran it with and without other mods. The crash report is here: http://pastebin.com/8WZbnc9i. Any ideas?

  12. I tried to spawn with the eggs the different mobs of this but I can't... As a clue when I create the world i dissable natural spawing of this mobs and now I have changed it

    1. I made some changes to the mob registration to "do registration the right way" and make this mod work better with other mods and not have conflicts. However, that screwed up egg spawns. I tried to fix this, but this seems to cause other egg-related problems with earlier versions of minecraft. I'll have to revisit this fix. Until I do, egg spawning doesn't work the best, especially if you are running on a server. Sorry about that! :(

  13. I can't seem to put a chest on any of the magical horses. I tried right clicking them on, and shift clicking them on but the chest gets used up and no slots open. I use version 1.5.8 for mc 1.10.2.

    1. I just checked, and yes, this is a bug affecting 1.10.2 and 1.9 versions. Thanks for reporting it! I will try to fix it for the next release, and put out a new release soon.

  14. We just ordered and paid for a custom skin. My daughter is thrilled but we don't see any wings. We selected the color and such. What are we missing?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Did the horse you applied the custom skin to already have wings when you did it? If not, try adding the custom skin to a horse that has large or tiny wings - the custom skin doesn't add wings to the horse model.

      If this doesn't work, or isn't the issue, let me know! I am glad you are enjoying your custom skin! :)

  15. Hi there, I love this mod, but seem to be having some issues along with it. It crashes whenever I explore new chunks, and I cannot get on my worlds further more unless I remove the mod. I have multiple mods running, and have the same problem when using the mod by itself. I would love to hear back from you on this.

    1. Correction; I am not able to get back on worlds that were running the mod previously, even after uninstallation.

    2. I have found that this has a problem with Fossils and Archeology Revival, and The Aether 2 Mod, whenever the three are used together, under the circumstance of mining fossils while one of the Unicorns is near, it crashes the game. I will let you know if I find any issues unrelated to other mods. Thanks for your time!

    3. Hey, thanks for doing the detective work and figuring out which mods were conflicting with the Ultimate Unicorn Mod. This is not always an easy thing to do. :) I can't guarantee that I'll get a fix for this conflict, but I'll try to take a look.

      Delete
    4. After reinstalling the Aether, crashes have not happened since. Hope no one else has this issue, or maybe it must have been something on my end. Either way, thanks for the response!

      Delete
    5. My bad, it seems since then crashing is uncommon, but still a problem until the Aether is removed and placed back in the mods folder after loading up the game. I don't expect this to be fixed, but thought I would share the further issues. Other than that, this mod is a must have for anyone looking to spice up their Minecraft experience.

      Delete
    6. Ahah! The source of all of the crashing was due to a conflict with the Little Maids mod! Sorry to bother you with my troubles, I am off to purchase a custom unicorn.

      Delete
    7. No problem! I'll get your unicorn built as soon as I see the order come in.
