Wings, Horns, and Hooves, the Ultimate Unicorn Mod (for Minecraft)

My latest project has been to create a Minecraft mod using the handy Minecraft Forge mod toolkit and loader. I sort of started with a scattershot approach, making items, some new block types, and a new dimension.

Then my kid said, "Hey Dad, can you make a Unicorn mod?"

And I said, "You bet I can."

After going for a few weeks, I thought to myself, "Erg, I should check to see if there are unicorn mods out there already." Sure enough, there were.

So I differentiated mine.

Two months later, I have released my mod, and I admit to being proud of it. It's called Wings, Horns, and Hooves, the Ultimate Unicorn Mod and you can get it at CurseForge.

The mod features four new magical horse types (Unicorn, Pegasus, Nightmare, and Destrier) and a bunch of new specialized equipment for them. They have their own behaviors, they can interbreed, and there are a bunch of secrets you can discover. The secrets include one secret magic item, five secret special horse types you can find through the breeding process, and an easter egg or two. Over the next few weeks I'll document all of these secrets, but until then I'll leave them for others to find!

Oh yeah, there is also a cool magical horse customization option.

I haven't quite finished the documentation part of the project, but I'm getting there. You can find out a lot more at the following links:
