What is Better Archery Mod
Better Archery Mod adds to your game new bows, various new arrow types, and quivers to hold arrows and allow you to easily switch between arrow types to fire when in need to certain type of them.
Better Archery Mod does not replace vanilla bows, so if you want to use the bows from this mod, you have to manually craft them. The vanilla bow crafting recipe is removed, however, and the crafting recipe for the normal bows is changed to have leather for padding on the string.
Bows and arrows in this mod should be used along with the quivers, not with arrows straight in your inventory. This is a must because the quivers allows you to pull out the arrows quicker and switch between them more conveniently. Do not judge the pull-back times without your arrows in a quiver in your inventory.
The mod sees a need to replace the vanilla bows in order to make them able to split, expect a message saying item ID 262 is mismatched.
Skeletons will spawn with this mod’s bows, with a small chance of spawning with a longbow, and a larger chance to spawn with a recurve bow. They also have a chance of spawning with potion arrows (poison or weakness). If you enable “allowSkeletonGriefing” in the config, they also have a chance of spawning with fire arrows, and a much much lower chance of spawning with impact explosive arrows, but only in hard mode.
