Bears on top of your house?

walking straight up a 4 meter high wall during winter? 

chasing you at a sprint while you're holding a spear and poking at them down a sheer stone cliff?

Seek no more! Now bears can only climb a reasonable distance at speed!

 

This mod reduces the stepheight of bears, their "leap" height to 2.25 blocks from 3.1, meaning a wall of 2 blocks and 1 slab should reasonably keep them out most of the time as long as you make sure to keep it's outside clean and 3 blocks should be more or less safe. Without this bears can occasionally climb up to 4 (and rarely 5) blocks with janky physics which just makes for entirely ridiculous looking animal pens if you want them bear-proof.

 

This mod should barely affect bears chasing the player as 3 block cliffs are at best unusual for the player to be traversing at speed, and they will generally path around it.

Nothing else to it!

For 1.19.4, I get this error:

Can you make this for the sheep, goats, and deer in 1.19? They can now all climb three blocks.

Ryuu I don't see why it would, this is just a JSON patch changing a value on a data sheet, unless butchery very specifically uses that value for some obscure piece of code it shouldn't affect it at all, that said, no guarantees hahaha

Would this conflict with the Butchering mod in any way?

💬 KetothAuthor, Sep 16th 2023 at 11:02 AM

Junrall fixed! Sorry about that! I mostly just mod for my own sake, first time trying to package something for VS hahaha

Although personally I'd recommend roofs for a variety of reasons, jetpack bears of course, being one of them.

@ketoth

This wouldn't load for me because VS can't find the modinfo.json. The fix for me was to restructure the contents of the zip file to this:

├── NoBearJetpacks_1.0.0.zip
    ├── assets
    ├── modicon.png
    └── modinfo.json
Thanks for this mod!... on my very first world, I accedentaly built my roofless home next to a bear spawn and was eaten multiple times because the bear kept climbing my walls!
