To install:

Do not copy the mod zip into .minecraft/mods, extract it into minecraft.jar!

Unless you are 1.7+, in which case drop it into .minecraft/mods.


  • Open your minecraft.jar (in Windows it's in "%appdata%\.minecraft\bin\" if you use the vanilla launcher).
  • Download and install the Forge Universal version for whatever version of the mod you're installing (instructions, under the section "Install Forge")
  • Copy the mod zip to your mods folder.
  • If you want quivers to render on your/other players' backs, install the RenderPlayer API too.

Also, I broke something, and now Baubles is a dependency even though it doesn't say so. An update is on the way.
