No Drifter Throwing Mod

This is a very simple mod that disables the ranged rock throwing attack that drifters were given in the 1.16.0 version of the game. If deployed into an existing world it will begin to function immediately and it is very likely that it can be disabled again later without consequence.

I'm fine with the idea of drifters having a ranged attack. It makes total sense, especially considering that there aren't any other ranged enemies in the game. But I just hate how it's implemented currently. They've got perfect accuracy, their windup is incredibly quick, there's no real "minimum" range before they'll throw it (meaning they'll just toss it right in your face), it's hard or unintuitive to dodge once thrown, and it's very difficult to tease it out so they miss. But with all that, it's just so little damage if you have any kind of armor, making it purely an annoyance--a kind of tax for merely being in the vicinity of one. But if you don't have armor, then it's a slow whittling away of your health--

I'm ranting. I would prefer there be an option or mod to just reduce their accuracy, make them easier to tease out, less likely to throw, et cetera, to balance it out. But I'm very glad there's an option to remove it at least. Thank you.

Somehow I knew this was going to become a mod.
