Hello there, I just want to…

Hello there, I just want to say that this is a pretty nice addition to minecraft and the idea is very cool; I mean seriously who could have thought about adding more stuff to the cow rather then flower or musrhroom, berry it is. But I do have some thing in my head, some questions (you don't have to listen to it if you don't want to). Anyway let start it with: would you add the ability to plant these berries, I mean it kinda sounds like making the whole point of having these cows become a waste but doesn't you need to find these cows first to be able to get the seeds? Secondly, why did the empty smoothie's name is strawberry smoothie? Is it a mistake or intended?

Thirdly, I know that sweet berries is from vanilla minecraft and you can obtain it from berry bush but it would be a nice addition to the mod if you add a sweet berry cow, after all everyone deserves to be on the spotlight one, right? ;) Lastly, the model looks great though but weirdly enough when I drink it, it swap to the empty cup model and it seems the model did move a bit from its previous position if you pay close attention to it (maybe a few or 1 pixel? or just my imagination). Anyway, it didn't really bother me that much it just in case you want to make your mod became super good then I guess I don't mind pointing it out. That's it for my feedback, it's a very nice mod to be honest. Anyway, thanks for making such a cool mod and go through this much reading.

Hi tuonkung!

thanks so much for your comment! I have just released a patch that fixes the name and movement of the empty smoothie. Thanks for pointing this out :)

 

I wound be making the berries into crops as the intent is to farm them from the cows (shears). I will keep in mind your suggestion about the sweet berries though :)

If possible would you mind commenting on the breeding system? I am keen on not having detailed instructions on how to breed each berry cow but I'm not sure if its too hard to work out as is?

Hello there again!

Thanks for considering my suggestion; I see you had fixed the smoothie problem and now it works pretty nice though (thanks god it's not my imagination). Sorry for not giving you a full detail about the breeding system since I didn't really spend much time trying it. But I believe I could give you some of my thought. For the breeding system though there's nothing too special about it; you still breed them through normal way (with wheat) and you get a baby cow which is the same type with either one of its parents. I suppose there's a chance to get a new type of cow through correct combination or it's just purely RNG, like those mobile games: Monster legend or Dragon city? If it's the case, I can't really tell if it hard or not but it's sure time taking; I spent like half an hour try breeding them and still not getting a single new type of berry. Is it suppose to be totally random or there a recipe somewhere and the player have to find it. Anyway, if you want, I think you could give some hints. I know there's no such thing as elements in this mod but you could take dragon city as an example, can't you? I don't know though, I'm just a casual player. Oh and I see in your mod page, you said you gonna add breeding combination to JEI; but what about making a guide book instead, I believe it easier. Yeah something similar to this:

Sorry that's the only tutorial I can find. If you like it, I think there are more on the internet. And once again, thank you for you effort!
