This mod is and will only be for 1.7.10–1.12.2

Why is that?

 

 

This project is an update of the 1.7.10 version of the ChocoCraft mod by clienthax

A separate continuation for 1.12.2 is ChocoCraft 3.

 

ChocoCraft Plus!

 

Do you like Chocobos? As mounts? Companions? Beasts of burden? ....Food?

 

You're in luck! Chocobos can fulfill all of these niches!

 

Q: "But horses exist. Why would I continue to use horses?"

A: Because horses are easier to find, easier to tame, and much faster and easier to ride immediately after being tamed. And they usually have much higher health, and can be armored.

 

Q: "...So then, why would I care about chocobos?"

A: Because unlike horses, chocobos can improve! With enough time and care, many chocobos will far exceed the capabilities of any horse. And for caretakers who are especially invested, meticulous chocobo husbandry can unlock latent special abilities!

 

Q: "Wow, tell me more!"

A: Not a question, but okay!

 

Break any Gysahl Garden bush, found across the world:

 It will drop any of a number of veggies, fruits, nuts, or beans:

Find a chocobo in the wild, and feed it! If done enough times, you will tame it (neckband) and it becomes yours!

Now you have a lot of options. You can fit the chocobo with a saddle and ride it (though it will not be cooperative AT ALL right away) and even give it saddle bags for portable storage! Or, for even more storage, you can give it pack bags and ask it to follow you (maybe):

...Or you can feed it to improve its stats!

Wait, stats??

That's right! All chocobos have stats such as running speed, max health, cooperation, etc.

You can view some of these stats by right-clicking a tamed chocobo with your Chocopedia:

How do you make a Chocopedia? 

You can craft it:

 

But that's a bit expensive, especially early on. So instead, you could right-click a book and quill onto a chocobo:



Or if you're really hurting for resources, you can right-click a Chocobo Feather onto a bookshelf:

 

Great! So what's the Chocopedia good for?

Oh gosh. So much. SO so much.

 

You can use the Chocopedia GUI to rename your chocobo, either manually or with a randomly-generated name:

You can also command the chocobo to [Wander], [Stay], or [Follow] you... but it only obeys options that its Temperament allows. "Friendly" chocobos will obey any command. "Stolid" chocobos won't wander and will follow you at reduced speed, and "Stubborn" chocobos can only wander.

 

My chocobo is slow and jerks around a lot when riding...

Wild chocobo stats vary a lot. You may need to tame a number of them until you find one with satisfactory stats. Remember that you can feed them to increase those stats! Moreover, with careful breeding, you can make ever-better chocobos!

 

My Chocobo is hurt! How do I heal it?

You can feed it gysahl garden veggies to heal it, or you can put it in a chocobo pen, where it will automatically heal:

Any patch of straw bedding (made from two wheat) close to a water-filled cauldron will count as a pen, and the chocobo will gradually heal when it stands on the straw.

You mentioned breeding and special abilities...?

Absolutely! You use nuts and beans to breed chocobos. Typically, the offspring will have stats based on its parents and the nut you fed them.

Some nuts result in offspring with lower stats than their parents, so those nuts are better when breeding chocobos specifically for slaughter. Or you can eat the nuts/beans if you like.

 

If you mate two chocobos under the right circumstances (often with the right nut), you can get any of a number of colorized specialty chocobos, each with a special ability like Water Tread and Soft Fall:

Those are just the first steps! From there, you can unlock more breeds, including the Royal Chocobo or for the extremely resolute breeder—the legendary Gold Chocobo...

Wow! How do I obtain one of those many awesome chocobos?

Open your chocopedia and have a read! It'll tell you absolutely everything you need to know.

 

Whoa, that's a lot to read...

I did say it was absolutely everything you need to know—from taming chocobos, to obtaining gysahl gardens, to how every veggie and fruit and nut and bean affects breeding and stat growth. Don't worry—you can quickly skip through the stuff you already know, and the book saves your page! You can open it up right near the area you left off. This is especially useful when deciding what to feed your chocobo.

 

I just want to ride an ordinary chocobo, right now, without hassle.

I'll meet you partway.

Some villages contain a chocobo stable, attended by a stablehand:

 

 

The stable chocobo is especially fast, resilient, and obedient! Just slap on a saddle and you can ride this chocobo whenever and wherever you like!

 

However, the chocobo belongs to the stablehand, so you will not be able to increase its stats or breed it. If you want the powerful specialty chocobos, you'll have to work for them!

 


Amazing! So when is this coming out for 1.12.2? 

It already is. Merry Christmas!

Thanks to KibaTheBarbarian for helping me test the mods in preparation for this release.
