New Release for Minecraft 1.12.2

I just put out a new release of the Wings, Horns, and Hooves: Ultimate Unicorn Mod yesterday, version 1.5.14, and I'm happy to announce that the mod now supports Minecraft 1.12.2!

Otherwise, the new release mostly contains bug fixes, and an option to turn off notification messages from the mod at startup (like messages about a new version being released).

Looking at Next Release

Besides fixing any bugs that get reported, I'm looking at a few new options for the next release.  Some things I'm considering include:

  • Allowing magical horses to inherit existing horse markings when bred with normal horses.
  • Upgrading the Custom Unicorn Creator to have hide patterns, so people can make more interesting custom horses.
  • Adding a secret Ultimate Unicorn breed that's a mutated version of the Reindeer breed.
  • Hippogriff breed.
  • And since I'll have most of the parts necessary, might as well throw in a gryphon breed.
  • A quest from the Oracle.
Possible Futures

I'd love to make an adventure mod that involved rescuing the poor imprisoned creatures from the lair of the evil Doctor Ogrebaz, where our friend Typhon the Destroyer was created.  However, that will probably have to wait a while, unless I find more time.
