-FIXED THE INVINCIBLE MOB BUG WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO POGPOGPOG (thank you So Many Enchantments rofl).
-Nerfed the bajeezus out of the battle burrito omegalul (lasts 2 minutes now instead of 10, christ why was this so OP).
-Dragon max health increased to 800 (was 600, this is the max health a dragon CAN have, based on how high level it is).
-Dragon max attack damage increased to 30 (was 20, this is the max damage a dragon CAN have based on how high level it is, this is only for melee/bite damage).
-Increased Troll health to 100 (was 50).
-Increased base health of Sea Serpents to 50 (was 20, this is base health, based on level of sea serpent, generally they'll have around 100 to 300 health now).
-Increased Cyclops health to 200 (was 150).
-Slightly decreased chance for snow village to spawn.
-Subspecies from Lycanites are now more powerful! Uncommon and rare mobs with special tags will now do more damage, be faster, attack faster, have more health, etc, best to avoid early game.
-Summoning Pedestal from Lycanites now only lasts 1 minute for 1 redstone (down from 10 minutes) and requires 8 building and 8 magic (was 4 for both).
-Slightly lowered chance for tremors to spawn from explosions.
-Disabled Ancient Sword Mastery enchantment as was causing server wide crash.
-Disabled Rusted curse enchantment for causing rare crash.
-Disabled Rune: Revival for causing dupe bug.
-Disable Subject Mathematics and Subject History for being hella broken.
-Disabled Quarrying enchantment (did nothing).
-Fixed broken furnace recipe from Ice and Fire that would smelt air into silver ingots (wtf ice n fire rofl) causing Smelting and Smelter enchantments to spawn silver from Ice and other blocks.
-Disabled Magical Rune Blessing for crashes and making cows blow you up? what?
-Disabled Vitality enchantment from Better Survival (not to be confused with Strengthened Vitality), this is supposed to speed up natural regen, but natural regen is disabled, so this enchant does nothing.
-Fixed durability of silver spartan weapons to 460 (was 48).
-Fixed dupe bug with smelting daggers.
-Fixed some broken loot in doomlike dungeons loot table (again).
-Added recipes for bronze coins to bronze ingot and vice versa, as smelting a bronze dagger now gives 4 bronze coins (nuggets).
-Lowered spawn chance of tumbleweed slightly, rebalanced tumbleweed drops (diamonds should be more rare now).
-Slightly raised chance of fishing up neptune's treasure.
-Added neptunium armor and golum armor to armorunder list so they can be used with warming/cooling liners.
-Added quivers to reforging station, can now be reforged with leather.
-Added all missing baubles to reforging station (hopefully).
-Slight nerf, Iron Arrows now do x2 damage (from x3) and Diamond Arrows now do 3x damage (from 4x).
-Slight buff, throwable weapons like knives, axes, boomerangs, and javelins now do more damage.
-Fixed Reskillable farming skills so all 3 skills can be unlocked now.
-Removed snow layer recipe becuz reasons.
-Iron Skin skill only goes up to level 5 for a max of 25% damage resist now instead of 10 levels for 50% damage resist. Unfortunately players already above 5 will not get set back to 5.
-Dragon skeletons are now more rare to find.
-Disabled Fire Starter item from No Tree Punching, to fix exploit with getting infinite perma torches via the Fire Pit item.
-Endermen are now friendly towards Endermites (yeah you saw this coming come on lol).
-Added Slimes to Carry On blacklist as picking them up could dupe them.
-Update to Carry On fixes Anti-Cheat system: The player can't carry more than one block or entity at once.
-Fixed Tide Arrows to be craftable with all types of Sea Serpent Scales.
-Uncommon variants (verdant, Azure, etc) and Rare (Lunar Grue, etc) lycanite mobs have had a slight buff in speed and damage now (before only difference was more health).
-Slightly increased scale variance from Lycanite Mobs (just means mobs can be different sizes now).
-Disabled version checker for Dynamic Surroundings and Orelib (yay less chat spam).
-Battletowers now have a 60% chance to spawn normal and a 40% chance to spawn underground (was 50/50).
-Slightly rebalanced loot in battletowers to compensate for double gen chances (loot tables sometimes spawn twice due to a bug, lowered spawn chances of diamonds and emeralds mainly, was never supposed to be generating that much lol)
-Fixed qualities not appearing on crossbows.
-Fixed super exploit with being able to pickup mob spawners (CarryOn) and then put them in your Toolbelt like an item lawl.
-Added new quality for bows "Legendary" with +15% to projectile damage.
-Fixed a number of generations like Ocean Castle (never spawned, not the floating castle, different one) Underwater Base (broken generation, the square flat sandstone structures in water), Floater (floating ocean structure with end portal frames, chests were empty, loot tables fixed now) and many more.
-Fixed EVEN MORE structures that were NEVER generating from Ruins due to outdated templates/conflict with No Tree Punching. Manually went through and fixed all 187 Ruins structures, a good 100 of them which probably never spawned in anyone's world before. There should be TONS more structures generating now. Re-balanced the weights of these as well and fixed a lot of broken generation stuff with them. (note this is Ruins, not Recurrent Complex, which spawns the sunken island and sometimes floating towns...which are not fixed and I honestly kinda like them, so =P).
-Fixed a bunch of Recurrent Complex structures that were not generating due to outdated presets (this fixes biome preset spam in logs). Rebalanced some weights, you'll see more varied buildings in villages now, also the big village library loot will actually spawn with custom enchantments now.
-Added 5 new RLCraft specific made structures by IceBelly! RLCraft 4 Towers Dungeon, RLCraft Underground Farm, RLCraft Underground Town, and RLCraft Small Town! These structures were added to Recurrent Complex and will generate randomly in your world! Thanks IceBelly for making these awesome structures!
ISeeDragons ADDED!! (massive thank you to XCUBE for coding this just for RLCraft!)
-Render distance fix for dragons, sea serpents, cyclops, and battletower guardian, can now be seen 128 blocks away!
-Tide Guardian armor can be repaired again!
-Fixes for other unrepairable items such as golem armor (now uses obsidiant to repair), neptunium armor/tools, and spartanfire fire/ice weapons!
-You can no longer just crouch to get out of a dragon's jaws/cyclops hand when it picks you up, so now you're pretty much f'd if that happens Sharpness V : Before patch -> (4 + 3 (Ench. Bonus)) * 3 = 21 damage : After patch -> 4 + 3 + (4 * 2) (DMG Bonus) = 15 damage
This should prevent weapons getting lucidrously powerful with extremely strong enchantments (aka, no more one-shotting dragons with sabers/rapiers Mr SystemCollapse).
Lycanite's Mobs update!
-Back-ported the AI overhaul from 1.14.4 versions of Lycanites Mobs:
-Added Creature Groups (different to Creature Types) which affect how mobs interact with other entities such as the predator group, monsters group, inferno group, etc.
-Added Creature Diets which can be viewed in the Beastiary, these affect which items can be fed to pets to heal them as well as which items can be fed to farmable creatures to breed them.
-The AI overhaul should drastically improve summon/pet AI. (no longer attacking armor stands, properly adhering to commands)
-Fixed a bug with Defensive and Assist pet stances where pets would not defend or assist their owner at all.
-Some creature behaviour is now slightly different, for example Quillbeasts are now neutral, this is all tied into the new creature groups system.
-Fixed bestiary not syncing correctly at times causing players bestiary to appear empty.
-Fixed some foods not applying their buff (yes chupacabra meat gives leech again =D).
-(because of the above change, foods do NOT instant heal any longer! They only give their potion effect now, similiar to RLCraft v2.5 behaviour)
-Fixed being able to spam X ability on mounts, flying feradons, etc.

-Water only mounts will now move at only 10% speed when on land.
-Underground mobs will only spawn at y 50 and below (was y 60).
-Cinders spawn rate in the nether only has been toned down (now separate spawner for them that is dimension specific).
-Entities with a width or height larger than 4 are now considered heavy for picking up (no more picking up dragons/battletower guardians with the Roc omegalawl).

-All behaviours like aggressive, assist, defensive, passive, should now work correctly. Pets/mounts should correctly follow player when set to follow mode.
-Pets/mounts/minions set to Aggressive no longer attack passive mobs (yay don't have to worry about walking into a village with your your summons out lol).

-Pet/Mount respawn timer set to 3 minutes (was 5) and timer is now shown next to respawn bar.
