Brooke's short and sweet guide on looking after your SWEM ponies <3




SWEM is no longer open source, however we are always looking for help! If you would like to contribute to the mod, join the discord linked at the bottom of the page to inquire about how you can aid development and/or maintaining SWEM's resources.



Q: Please can I have a custom coat?

A: We will not be making custom coats. You are free to make your own coat for a texturepack or commission someone to make one for you.


Q: I have a suggestion for the mod! Where may I contact you?

A: In our discord, we have a channel dedicated to our suggestions named #suggestions-faq. There you may also search for previous suggestions and our plans to instate said suggestions.


Q: What are the phases and what are we on?

A: Originally, Phase One was our Adventure Release, focused on upgrading everything horse for survival mode. Horse model, coats, animations, skill levelling, stable care, training equipment, horse armor, and equestrian decor were worked on for this.

    Phase Two was our planned English/Western Release. Focused on fluffing equestrian servers with all those pleasantries and upgrades. More saddles, more tack, more horse models, more animations, more decorations, more coats, breeding and genetics, illnesses, and options.

    Phase Three was our planned Alight (magic) Release. The biggest and last release would be completely based on adventure, including a prebuilt dimension with lore, layers of exploration, new blocks, new mobs and mythical equines, and new things to discover.

We are currently in a sort of a "Phase one-and-a-half," where Phase One is completed and some features of Phase Two are present, however development will not majorly continue to finish everything we had planned; instead, we will be working on devving features the community votes for and focusing on bug fixes. More information is available on our discord.


Q: How may I donate?

A: Donations to support development can be made through our Ko-fi. More information on these and their purposes/perks can be found in our discord's how-to-help channel <3


Q: How do I download mods? What are this mod's dependencies?

A: Please use Google or Youtube to find out how to download forge and mods. This mod requires geckolib and playeranimator.

Q: Will you update/backport to [version]?
No. Development is entirely focused on 1.18.2 and 1.20.1, and we will likely only be taking on a new version if Forge was to offer Long Term Support for it.

Q: Will you make the mod available for Fabric?
A: No. We do not have the developmental resources to manage updating for two separate modloaders.

Q: I found a bug, where should I report it?
You can report bugs in our discord's bug-reports forum. Bugs for 1.16.5 will not be fixed, and your bug will not be addressed without a formal report.
