⚠️ Crashing? Read this first:

  • Do you have Trinkets API for Fabric installed? If not, install it.
  • Do you have the appropriate version of Geckolib for Fabric installed? If not, install it. Versions 1.0.4+ require Geckolib 3. Earlier versions require Geckolib 2.
  • If you are using a version that requires Geckolib 2.0.0, Sodium is incompatible and will crash on startup.
  • If you want to run the mod on a server, make sure you're using or higher - older versions will crash in multiplayer.


>> This mod is for Fabric. An unofficial and unsupported Forge port is available here. <<
