Hate the way when you shoot your bow at something or someone, you have to shoot way above them to hit them? Well now with StraightShot, you can make bows shoot straight! Just point and shoot, great for PvP and texture packs with guns etc. involved. However, to make it more realistic, the bullet spread is slightly upped the farther away you are from your target, giving it a nice realistic feel.

Instructions:


1. Extract the zip folder (the one you downloaded)

2. Navigate to the minecraft.jar (remember %appdata%)

3. Open the jar archive and drag and drop the CLASS files from the zip folder to the minecraft.jar

4. Delete the META-INF folder

5. Enjoy!

Look at the version #, it will not work with 1.2 and it never will, I discontinued it.
its a texture pack the mine wars texture pack genius

Uh, no I just used that as an example for the mod. The mod makes your bow shoot straight with no gravitational physics. I just used Mine Wars here (which I made by the way) to show that it makes packs with guns more realistic.
mr. sir! it does not work, sir! i deleted the META-INF and added the two class files to the .jar through the archive, sir! what did i do wrong, sir?
Does this work with servers?

Yeah i 'attempted' to update it to 1.8.1 without MCP... Didnt go too well as you can see... So i gotta wait till it releases the new version to fix all the bugs.

ok thank you good mod though good concept but will it cause issues with the new draw bow action ?? because that determines power and "straightness"
and im also new to planet minecraft.com uhh how do you upload a texture pack or mod :)
  • yokoolio
  • Level 87
  • Elite Boss
  • September 17, 2011, 5:14 pm
Well just click the texture pack or mod tab, then beneath the spotlight slideshow will be a button saying "upload mod" or "upload texture pack". Just click it and fill out the necessary info, and to actually upload the pack or mod you must put it in a zipped folder and then click the "upload media" button then browse to your creation, and thats all there is to it :)
Hope i helped.
thanx and plus i just got ur texture and it is very annoying that the blaster is affected by gravity so great mod b4 i download it i just wanna know does it work for 1.8.1

  • September 17, 2011, 7:17 pm
It does for me but ive discovered that there is a big bug that causes it to not work for some people. With MCP not updated yet i cant fix this problem easily so if it doesnt work for you then sorry nothing i can do but if it does work then great!
Good mod but doesn't the arrows mod do the same using a homing bow??

I was and am not aware of such a mod... I just uploaded this because i thought it was a good idea and i was frustrated because in my Star Wars pack blaster bolts had gravity and physics that shouldnt apply. This is more of a mod to help out modern/sci-fi texture pack makers by making their guns or whatever more realistic. Or maybe give yourself an unfair advantage against monsters.

Hey, if anyone finds this comment, Im very new to planetminecraft. Can someone give me quick instructions on how this level up system works?



HOW DID ALL THESE MODS SUDDENLY UPDATE TO 1.8!!!!?!?!?
  • yokoolio
  • Level 87
  • Elite Boss
  • September 16, 2011, 2:35 am
XD I updated them thats why! Its not hard to do all you gotta do is copy and paste your code into the 1.8 class files.

And the level system works by uploading stuff like texture packs, projects, skins, servers, blogs and mods. The more views and downloads you get the more you level up.

Well in the pictures is a texture pack, so that cool blaster rifle youre looking at is actually a bow, and what ive really done here is kinda made it shoot straight and if you hold down right-click its sorta like automatic firing. I made it for texture packs where the bow is retextured to a gun or a laser rifle etc.
So to get the best experience i would go get one of those.

  • August 28, 2011, 4:58 am
Yes. Well maybe. I know it works with Too Many Items, but idk about on a Mac because I dont use one. Pretty sure it works though.
if you shoot your arrows in the air they will never come back

  • August 21, 2011, 1:36 pm
This is a great concept, but, I downloaded it a while ago and I discovered that if you were to shoot a creature while it was red, the arrow would move very slowly away until you touch it, and then it harms you, is this fixed?
  • yokoolio
  • Level 87
  • Elite Boss
  • August 21, 2011, 1:42 pm
This was a bug with unmodded minecraft. The problem is, when a mob is shot it goes through damage animations and cannot take damage in that time. But the arrow has to go somewhere so it flies back out. But in unmodded minecraft, the arrow will bounce to the ground. However in this mod since the range of the arrow is unlimited, it will shoot right back out in a different direction. Im trying to find out a way to fix this without going too far out of my way.

Thats a texture pack. You can use a texture pack with a gun as the bow to make it work.
Wut tex ;D

ikr?
Every time I try to shoot the bow, I get a screen that says 'Saving Chunks'. Then Minecraft crashes. Please help? META-INF is deleted, and I don't have any other mods involve bows or skeletons.

I think i know the problem, the arrow is being a RAM hog. when it shoots straight i thonk it renders chuncks as it goes. I might need to put a cap on distance.

Lol. Have you noticed its all one package? All of it fits together, and eventually i will have a Star Wars Sound Pack, and at that point i will combine all this into one big Star Wars package :D

Then once thats done i plan to move on to making an Explorer Pack, which will be like an Indiana Jones/Uncharted/1900's Amazon Expedition type deal. I think thatd be pretty cool as well.

Are you sure you deleted the META-INF folder? And if you did, do you have any other mods involving bows and/or skeletons? If so they may be the problem.
