      Server Move   09/13/18

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

Mod suggestion: Barrel saddle

5 posts in this topic

So I love barrels. However it can be really hard to transport multiple barrels over any distance, and I love the reason for that.  However I was thinking it would be cool to put four or five barrels on the back of a donky and transport them that way.  Is there a way to create a barrel saddle for donkeys with mods?

Just about anything is possible with the right knowledge and drive. You'd need to make an animal, then add back slots, then made sure it could spawn. Maybe create an item called barrel saddle that when right clicked on a horse, consumes the item, despawns the horse and spawns in your animal.

Of course it could. How that is coded is the horse checks what type of horse it is and allows you then to add the chest. The issue you have is vanilla horses and TFC horses are not coded for TFC barrels. Now you could modify the TFC code but that practice is considered less favorable and to avoid if possible because it can cause compatibility issues. The convention is to make your own version so as to not cause compatibility issues. This is one of the reasons so many mods have their own versions of the workbench and furnace. This is the reasoning behind my previous post. Now to be fair you can copy almost all of the TFC Horse code, change some names, modify a couple methods and you are almost there. You just need someone motivated enough to put the effort in. Here's code relating to your question.

TFC Horses

TFC Back Slot

It's usually not too hard to modify the TFC code without causing too many compatibility issues if you're careful and do the inheritance properly.
