Update: Avian Awesomeness - Version 188.8.131.52 for Minecraft 1.12.2
Config Reset Version:
184.108.40.206 (Configs made before this version will be reset by this update.)
Several smaller pets can now Perch on their owner's shoulder! Right click the pet to perch it and then press the new Dismount / Unperch Key (while not mounted) to unperch the pet.
Added a new Dismount / Unperch Key which is bound to C by default, sneaking (shift) will no longer dismount and is now used to fly/swim down on mounts so no more accidental falling deaths from flying mounts!
The Beastiary will now display if creatures can be ridden as Mounts or can Perch on their owner's shoulder.
Implemented sweeping attack on Equipment pieces.
Added a new Ventoraptor Model.
Added a new Uvaraptor Model.
Added a new Raiko Model.
Added a new Reaper Model.
Added a new Jabberwock Model.
Added another new Behemoth Model as the previous one wasn't up to standards.
Added a new Ventoraptor Skull Equipment Part model.
Added a new Uvaraptor Equipment Part with two axe slots and slowness.
The Astaroth Claw Equipment Part can now rapid fire Devilstars, this replaces the Devilstar Scepter and is much more effective.
Striders can now be used as mounts with a pickup ability and if they pickup another pet/mount they will apply water breathing to it, useful for transporting pets underwater.
Fixed a random crash when assessing melee attack range.
Kobolds numbers have been too high on servers, this is due to them not despawning if they have items in their inventory, in order to save performance I've disabled this feature so they will now despawn naturally despite holding stolen items.
Added a config option to disable block particles from mobs and projectiles, this is useful when using other mods that create 3D block particles as it can cause a lot of lag.
Several creature jsons now have the additional "perchable" property added, if any of these are not loading default then perching will be disabled by default: Roc, Raiko, Darkling, Kobold, Wraamon, Herma, Afrit, Arix, Aglebemu, Abaia and Abtu, so be sure to reset these or add "perchable": true to them.
Many equipment jsons have had their defaults changed (see Balancing) so if any are not loading defaults you may want to reset them or look into the changes made.
Lycanites Mobs projectiles fired by players or pets/mounts/minions will now go through friendly targets.
Ember projectiles (fired by Cinders and the Cinderblade) now have half their velocity but their lifetime doubled to make for a smoother fire effect without changing damage rates, backported from 1.14.4.
Removed the Devilstar Scepter.
Improved the way that damage taken is calculated.
Drastically increased the effectiveness of Pet Armor.
Boosted the damage of Equipment Parts that don't have any or much sweeping range in order to make them competitive for single target damage instead.
Fixed a bug where mobs were attacking some dungeon bosses.
Fixed a bug where mounts and pets were attacking other pets or players in cases even though their pvp setting was disabled.
Fixed a bug where Aegis were attacking tamed mobs on sight.
Fixed a bug where a creature's armor attribute was completely ignored and only pet armor was applied.
Fixed a bug where Equipment Parts and other modded weapons/tools were not having their type assessed correctly by mobs weak to tools such as Geonachs being weak to Pickaxes.
Fixed a bug where projectiles were moving slow underwater (non-water projectiles are instantly destroyed by water).
Fixed a bug with several Equipment Parts where effects of different strengths were listed multiple times.
Made a change to possibly improve compatibility with mods that scale mob health.
Fixed Rocs not dropping Creepers correctly or getting stuck when holding Creepers.
Trolls will now correctly use a ranged attack again.
