Moar Bows V1.8.0
For Minecraft 1.16.5!


The Moar Bows datapack adds a bunch of new bows types to the game. The goal was to try and make unique bows that are more than just statistical upgrades while also attempting to still fit in with the art style and general game design of Minecraft. While definitely not perfect, the pack does a fairly good job of achieving these goals while adding a load of new content.

So, what do the bows do?
  • TNT Bow:
    Causes a small explosion where the arrow lands or on entities that are hit.

  • Slime Bow:
    Launches hit mobs into the air. Does little base damage, but can cause a fair amount of fall damage.

  • Honey Bow:
    Causes hit mobs to be “honey slowed”, which drastically decreases their movement speed. The arrows themselves do very little damage.

  • Quartz Bow:
    Does high damage in the Nether, but very little in the overworld/end.

  • Shulker Bow:
    Causes hit mobs to get levitation.

  • Ice Bow:
    Freezes the target for 2.5 seconds.

    
  • Emerald Bow:
    Deals massive damage to raiders.

    
  • Wither Bow:
    Deals a bit of extra wither damage.

    
  • Glowstone Bow:
    Causes the target to glow for 10 seconds.

    
  • Prismarine Bow:
    Deals massive true damage to mobs in water, but none to mobs out of water.
  • Short Bow:
    Does high damage, but arrows become less and less powerful the further they travel.

  • Sniper Bow:
    Deals little base damage which increases as the arrows fly further.

    
  • Chorus Bow:
    Causes targets hit to randomly teleport sometimes.

  • RainBow:
    Makes mobs hit by the arrow drop dye essence.
    
  • Firework Bow:
    Causes a random firework explosion where it lands, which deals splash damage. The arrows themselves deal very little damage.

  • Lightning Bow:
    Causes lightning to strike where the arrow hits. Lightning stuns enemies for a short time. Arrows themself don’t deal any damage.

  • Critical Bow:
    Deals regular damage, but has a chance to do a massive critical hit.

  • Random Bow:
    Gives random positive or negative potion effects.

  • Armor Piercing Bow:
    Deals some extra damage to armored targets. The extra damage ignores armor.

  • No Gravity Bow:
    Arrows travel with no arc. They will disappear after 30 seconds if they haven’t hit the ground.

  • Squid Bow:
    Causes an ink explosion where it lands which blinds, slows, and withers nearby targets for a short time.

    
  • Shooting Star Bow:
    Causes a meteor shower of exploding rocks from the sky around where the arrow lands. Quite powerful.

    
  • Builders Bow:
    Places blocks into the world from your offhand.

    
  • Bee Bow:
    Shoots poisonous bees instead of arrows, which arc upward instead of down.

    
  • Bridging Bow:
    Constructs a temporary bridge where you aim, which can be walked over but fades away after a short time.

How does this pack work?

Arrows shot by the custom bows get a tag and potion effect which determines what type of arrow it is. Arrows that are in the air can be given custom particle trails. When they hit a block, the arrows vanish, but some have special effects, such as the TNT bow causing a small explosion. Mobs hit by the arrows have the potion effect transferred to them, which can be detected to determine which mob was struck.

To install, follow the instructions contained in the “instructions.txt” file included in the download. If you are still having issues installing or want help knowing how to do something with the pack, ask for help on our discord.

Fully Multiplayer compatible!

There's something wrong with the textures for me; all of the bows work but they all have the default bow texture. For the custom crafting, it's a dropper with an item frame on the top.

They do work "on mobs".
But... I assume you mean let mobs use the special bows. I don't think I can actually make that work, as there would be no way to determine if a mob shot an arrow with a custom bow.

I like your ideas with the new bows however even though the bow supposed to look random, the texures for that one is not quite on par with anything else and is not that pleasing to look at. I tried to make this should as nice as possible but hopefully you guys update that texture :)

Yeah, I can agree with that. I had some major difficulties making a decent looking texture for it.

no problem... great work done on the pack

The other option of course is to have the bow use random textures by giving it an animation

Yeah, I considered that. Just didn't have the time for it due to there being 4 bow states, so that would be a lot of animations.

SUGGESTION

The honey bow should give back the empty honey bottles to the player I feel to make it more in-line with vanilla crafting recipes...

I am really interested to see how this pack comes along though especially with the new way to get the great view from up here advancement...
