Hey everyone!


This is a little mod that adds arrow trails.


To give your bow an arrow trail, first craft a bow painter with a stick, string, and wool, then craft your bow with that and some dyes to set the color. If you ever want to get rid of the colors, or start the coloring over, just right click the bow on a filled cauldron.
