This mod adds some new bows, various new arrow types, and quivers to hold arrows and allow you to easily switch between arrow types to fire.
This mod does not replace vanilla bows, so if you want to use the bows from this you’ll have to 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, see the list of bows below.
This mod has to replace the vanilla arrows 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.
