Enjoying Shields in Minecraft? ...Of course.
Want NEW Shields with Configurable Durability? ...Yup.
Want NEW Shields with Auto repair? ...That would be Awesome.
Want NEW Shields with RF Durability? ...Yes please.
Want NEW Shields made from Apples? ...Wait, what!?
During updating The Erebus and The Betweenlands mods; myself and some of the Angry Pixel team
have been working on adding some custom shields. This mod is a product of that research with a twist.
All the shields have configuration options for their various settings.

Mod Total Rewrite for 1.10.2 by: SnakeFang12
Code and ideas contributed: imdutch21, dmf444, ganymedes01
Why is there not a 'Diamond Apple Pie shield' with greater durability? :-)
More shields with fun yet vanilla style design, I love it! Chance of 1.12?
Really loving this mod so far, though I've got a small problem. All the shields are invisible for me. I've checked the jar-file, and I can't find any textures for them. Is there any way to fix this or add textures to the shields? Or am I doing something wrong? I've tried both beta-versions, and none of them got textured shield for me.
I have pulled all versions of the mod apart from the original.
This is due to errors that have been found in all the other versions.
Sorry about the problems.
The iShield (RF version is) causing a crash before fully loading on versions other than the earliest for 1.9.4/1.10.2. Where do you want the crash report? I'm not sure but this might not apply if using another RF mod.
Sorry about that - the mod has had some major re-writes over the past week.
We have an issue tracker on the github page here:
Sorry for the problems that people have been experiencing recently - as I have said the mod has been completely re-coded and a little lack of focus has caused a few problems.
We will fix it. I promise. ;)
Do you have no Issue tracker?
[1.10.2] AppleShields-0.1.2.jar - Crashes server
Stacktrace / Error log: https://gist.github.com/DeadSix27/508511560ed3ec340fc69018a2f39af0
In 1.10.2, I've just spent a couple of fun hours pulling mods off and putting them back on my build to find what was making all the tree leaf blocks flicker endlessly once I used any kind of Nightvision. Finally pinned it down to this mod. It appears to be some kind of lighting issue, but have no clue why your mod which ought to add nothing but a couple of items should cause this kind of issue. As a final test ran it with nothing but this mod and Forge 2014 and 2043 and confirmed that it definitely is this mod.
Thanks for the report, I'll look in to it right away. It is a strange and specific thing to happen. I'll see if I can replicate it and find out if the rendering code is causing it. It's most likely to do with the rendering rather than any lighting tbh.
I'll probably be using Apple Shields a lot as I explore modded 1.10+. I've already done a mod review for Apple Shields and Bullseye. I did a double review since both improved post-1.9 combat. Link:
Wait but why
Because it just is.
Speaking honestly here, I'm updating my 1.9.4 server to 1.10.2 and I'm looking for mods, and I come across this one... I see the first 5 lines and am like 'YES this is what I need!' and I look at the items and am disappointed, having them apple shaped makes them novelty, if you put the apples as a design on a different shape shield (Like a rectangle or a circle or something), people will take this mod more seriously. I'll let you know if I get any issues with the mod (Yes, I'm still adding it)
This mod has been created for fun. It isn't supposed to be taken too seriously hence the apples ;) This is the 1st mod I know of that adds any sort of custom shields for use with MC 1.9 +. I'm sure (I know of 2) other mods will soon have some cool custom shields with fancy 3D models for you to use :)
I hope you enjoy the mod anyway and thanks for the support.
Holding an apple for a shield is cool and aw, but its feels weird to me holding a very flat apple as a shield. I would imagine that it would be a giant apple that is cut in half with a giant staple that is attach to the back. And because a normal apple in real life is thick, it can stop maybe a few things. But not as affective as eating it. But as for the golden and icon apple shields, they do make some since do to their material being made of iron and gold. But other then that, this mod is great if I were in need of more shields.
Hype Hype Hype. gonna try these asap :D
Finally no longer have to use a tinkers signpost xD
Cool, I hope you enjoy the mod.
Be sure to report any issues you may find as this is new mod ;)
