What is Better Bows Mod?
This mod adds two new bows, various new arrow types, and quivers to hold arrows and allow you to easily switch between arrow types to fire. 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.
Mod Screenshots and Recipes:
When a bow from this mod breaks, it turns into an un-stringed bow which can be pulled back like a normal bow to be re-stringed. Enchantments aren’t lost, but that may change, since enchantments are meant to be expensive.
Normal bow: This bow is basically the same as the vanilla bow.
Recurve bow: This bow fires faster arrows than the normal bow, has less durability and takes longer to pull back.
Longbow: The longbow is the longest-range bow in this mod (so far). It fires much faster arrows than the normal bow, has the same durability, and takes much longer to pull back.
Yumi: Has the same durability as the normal bow, higher power/range than the recurve bow, and takes a bit less long to pull back than the longbow. Its stats are basically between the recurve bow and the longbow, except its durability is the same as the longbow and normal bow.
Composite bow: The composite bow is the fastest-firing bow (in rate of fire) of them all. The crafting recipe is (so far) the most complicated, too. To craft it, you’ll need two rotten flesh, a water bottle, a bone, a stick, a piece of leather, and three string. The crafting recipes using all these items are below.
Last but not least, the quiver!
Quivers can hold up to 64 items in 16-sized stacks, to allow you to have multiple types of arrows per quiver.
