So the way to get the horse to stay where ever you want is to first have it follow you and then give it the command to stay.

💬 Khana, Feb 16th at 6:56 PM

Dnd no worries i think we did something liek turn off their wild spawnin?... not sure.. but my tamed horse disapeared but oh well.

iv put another 1 out manually. seein how it goes from there.


💬 Dnd, Feb 15th at 7:15 PM

Khana I am not very experienced at coding, but I am pretty sure they spawn on runtime. If you open the zip file in the entities folder there are 2 files for horses of foals. Maybe test on a fresh world the line that says "chance": 0.000035 and lower it. Sorry, I honestly can't tell you if that is right or not.

💬 Khana, Feb 14th at 10:47 AM

how do i configure LESS to spawn? there are too many


💬 Sunchaser, Feb 12th at 5:33 PM

Allstar13521 Thank you, that sorted matters simply. I was about to start tearing my hair out. As for Block Interaction, this is the first time it's ever been an issue, but I will definitely keep that in mind, thanks. :)

Though this confusion/frustration could be avoided if here on the mod page, or better yet in the handbook info, it mentioned "you can issue commands, to do this Shift+RClick on your horse". Perhaps an addition to a future version?

💬 Maamessu, Feb 12th at 6:58 AM

Would it be possible to attach horse turning to keybindings as well as mouse look? At the moment it seems like the only way to direct your horse while mounted is with W/S (forward/backward) and to use mouse look to turn left and right... which I have a lot of trouble with. Ideally I'd love to see A/D functionally for left/right turning as an option.

💬 Allstar13521, Feb 10th at 4:14 PM

Sunchaser The macro you're looking for is Shift+RClick. In future you may want to have Block Interaction Help turned on (toggle in the options under Interface or by using the Ctrl+N macro by default) since most mods seem to assume you have it on.

💬 Sunchaser, Feb 9th at 3:01 PM

Maybe I'm missing something incredibly obvious, but as much as the mod and commenters talk about issuing command to horses like follow or stay, I cannot for the life of me figure out how you do this. There is no tool-style interaction on F while mounted, nor anything on other keys I've tried, and Ctrl-Right Clicking just immediately mounts and dismounts me. The guidebook mentions you can issue commands, but does not tell me how. I've even looked at the mod code in desperation for an answer, and while I see the commands there, I still have no idea how to use them. Help?

(Edit: I wondered if it was a matter of my having rebound Sneak to Ctrl, but changing that off did not alter. Ctrl-click now just mounts me without the dismount.)

💬 Pervy_Sage, Feb 8th at 8:42 PM

LadyEdain I've found that once you find the direction the horse wants to move you only need the 2 sides of the fence. But your way works as well. And leaving the fencing in the saddles is a great idea. Though a lead and just one fence would be perfect.

💬 LadyEdain, Feb 8th at 8:17 PM

@Pervy_Sage No leads. That would indeed be helpful, as my first day out with my horse, it wandered away and I like to have never found it! I did pack fencing in my saddlebags, though, so when I stayed the night anywhere after that, I fenced him in (which could sometimes be tricky, even when I had him set to "follow"--which seems to be the better option, BTW). But I left the fences up and marked them on my map (as well as leaving a basic bed), so I have little camps to stay at the next time I go that way.

💬 Pervy_Sage, Feb 8th at 5:51 PM

It would make horses really useful if you can just pick them up or at the very least tether them to a tree or something with a rope/lead. Otherwise they're pretty limited, you have to incase them in a fence make actually stay where you want them. Incasing them in a fence and removing the fence each time takes a lot of time you've have saved by using the horse for the faster movement speed.

💬 Pervy_Sage, Feb 8th at 5:39 AM

LadyEdain Thank you. Also you know of a way to put a horse on a lead? And maybe tie the lead to a fence like in Minecraft? The stay command doesn't work and I have like a 100% obedience.

💬 DarkThoughts, Feb 6th at 11:51 PM

LadyEdain That was not the issue. I opened a bug report at PetAI's bug tracker and he fixed the animation within hours.

💬 LadyEdain, Feb 6th at 11:35 PM

Pervy_Sage Yes, the saddlebags are functional. I believe you press UP while clicking on the horse to access them.
DarkThoughts Did you find the setting that allows you to lower your arms? Thanks to the 1.19 update, the arms are indeed in the way, but there's a setting that allows you to lower them so they're not in front of your face when you're riding.

💬 Pervy_Sage, Feb 6th at 11:23 PM

Are the bags on the saddle just for show? If not, how do we access them?

💬 SuaveDoggo, Feb 3rd at 10:13 AM

You could always use the Mobs Radar mod akroeze

💬 akroeze, Jan 31st at 1:45 AM

I got off of my horse to do something and he wandered away despite being told "Stay".... now I can't find him


Can we have him show up on the mini map at least??

💬 Stejer, Jan 22nd at 5:31 PM

I'd like to ask something, is it possible to make the horse normal walk speed just a little bit faster (maybe the normal seraph walking speed) because the difference in speed between the sprinting and walking is massive and its faster to just walk on foot than to walk normaly with the horse

also is it possible to make so when I'm mounted on my horse for them be immune to demage? because I wanted to try hunting on horse back but my spears and arrows keep hitting the horse and hurting them making me never able to hit my prey 

💬 DarkThoughts, Jan 21st at 8:04 PM

Yeah, pretty much unplayable with the animations at the moment. The arms are right in front of your camera. lol

💬 Allstar13521, Jan 19th at 12:16 PM

Ahrondus I'll have to try the double dismount thing but I can confirm that I already tried setting a new stay point, the horse kept trying to return to the original point some couple hundred blocks away.

I can also mostly confirm that I couldn't replicate the issue on the "v1.6.0-rc.2" update (different world, after updating to 1.19.0). I never got the horse to a high enough Obediance to give it a stay command that time but it didn't get stuck eating forever and it didn't keep trying to wander "home" at least.

Will update you on wehther the double dismount thing works once I re-install the right version of the game.

Edit: Tried double tapping the sneak key, no dice. Horse continued trying to return "home" and remains stuck in the eating animation.

Decided to see if it was a fluke and began taming a new horse, will let you know if issue reappears.

Update: New horse is fully tamed and I got its obidience high enough to use both commands. Issues did not reappear, so it's looking like the first one was the result of a weird fluke.

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Jan 18th at 8:56 AM

Attention all riders!  A release for 1.19.0 has been deployed, please report any bugs you encounter and as always, drop a line with some feedback! We're looking into a few highly requested features, but please remember we also have other obligations to work and family.

As always, we appreciate every message!  Ride safe!  And we'd love to see some screenshots of your beautiful horses and homes!

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Jan 18th at 8:43 AM

CrusadingPriest  Certainly will be. We've been doing quite a bit of testing to ensure everything is ready for the 1.19 update, and it came a bit sooner than anticipated.  Fear not, a 1.19 update for FSWilds will be coming as soon as we can get our updates complete.

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Jan 18th at 8:41 AM

False_Chicken  Thanks for your feedback! The riding animation was added by Gerste in PetAI.  I can bring up the topic and see if we can get some adjustments.

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Jan 18th at 8:40 AM

Allstar13521 A couple things to address here.  Sometimes when the movement gets stuck, the dismount code doesn't properly check and clear.  Double-tapping sneak has a tendency to fix this issue.  If your horse is wandering back to a previous "stay" point, give it another command, then tell it to stay again.  This tends to help establish a new position for the horse to stay near.  They will wander in an area around that point, but they will not roam off entirely.

💬 CrusadingPriest, Jan 17th at 8:50 PM

Is there going to be an update to the Feverstone Wilds mod now that 1.19 is stable?

💬 False_Chicken, Jan 17th at 6:07 PM

In the latest RC for 1.19 when riding a horse your arms take up most of the view. Is this intended? Looks cool in thrid person but is nearly unusable in first. 

💬 DarkThoughts, Jan 17th at 9:00 AM

Allstar13521 Yeah, weirdly enough yours did notify me as well. That's the first time I've experienced that though, despite having seen people tagging me before. Not sure what that's about.

💬 Allstar13521, Jan 17th at 1:46 AM

DarkThoughts Well yours notified me

💬 DarkThoughts, Jan 16th at 7:08 PM

Allstar13521 That doesn't actually notify the person anyway.

💬 Allstar13521, Jan 14th at 3:50 AM

Ahrondus Messed up the @ in my first comment

💬 Allstar13521, Jan 13th at 8:24 PM

Whilst I have encountered the issue with the movement keys getting stuck as well, my issue was that the horse keeps trying to return to the specific location where I finished taming it whenever I dismount and doesn't listen when I command it to stay where it is.

💬 DarkThoughts, Jan 13th at 3:06 PM

The movement keys often get stuck, making the horse run / walk into one direction without any input. Also, I feel they should have a certain taming threshold before they allow you to mount & ride them instead of that just working after the first feeding.

💬 Allstar13521, Jan 13th at 5:45 AM

@Ahrondus Having a bit of an issue with a tamed horse not following commands and constantly trying to return to the spot I tamed it. Also of note is that it got stuck permanently eating some grain I gave it, even after I closed and reopened the save.

I spotted some warnings and other weirdness in the logs but I'm not sure if it's all related. Should I post logs here or somewhere else?



💬 mw00, Dec 22nd 2023 at 8:08 PM

tech tree for horse riding should be like this if you want to stay realistic: bareback horse riding -> wagons/chariots -> saddles

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Dec 21st 2023 at 5:39 PM

For those adventurous enough, I've added a 1.19 release candidate with updates formatted for the new API rework to creature diets.  Survive, prosper, and ride into to a new dawn!

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Dec 20th 2023 at 7:00 PM

Toudi Thank you for your reports. I've released a fix for the issue, and apologies to all who this affected.

💬 Toudi, Dec 20th 2023 at 9:38 AM

saddles are not craftable in v1.5.2 (they were ok in v1.5.0) checked on game 1.18.15

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Dec 14th 2023 at 9:45 PM

@Marlim  The textures are currently limited because the game's texture atlas is also limited.  Utilizing large textures would overpopulate the texture atlas and begin causing many issues for other item textures as well.  I believe they're updating the texture atlas to be nearly unlimited in size, at least I've heard.  After that, we can incorporate more detailed texures for our horse models.

💬 Phoenicius, Nov 13th 2023 at 4:24 AM

Also wondering this. Have you figured it out? 


EDIT: you have to have the horse fully tamed before you can place a saddle on it.


💬 Marlim, Nov 2nd 2023 at 11:15 PM

The mod is cool, and the models are also good, but the horse's texture could be better, it seems to have low rendering.

💬 Snapkaitkat, Oct 8th 2023 at 2:20 AM

Does anyone know how to equip the saddle I cant find anywhere that says how too... 

💬 Jimzawy, Sep 28th 2023 at 4:14 AM

GravityGradient Hey there, go to your mod folder AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\Mods\\assets\feverstonehorses\entities\land\, open a test file called horse in land folder, scroll to the end of the text and you'll find a idle horse sound frequecny modifier (idle sound change), I changed it to 0.01


I also was wondering about the horse walking and galloping sounds, the sound files are present in the mod but they are not played ingame

💬 GravityGradient, Sep 6th 2023 at 4:22 AM

Is there a way to reduce the frequency and volume of the horses sound? Having a couple of them in a stable anywhere close to my house results in extremely regular loud neighing that gets very annoying

💬 Gikame, Aug 25th 2023 at 6:35 PM

Installed the mod

Arabian Horse Spawns infront of my house


I think xD

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Aug 20th 2023 at 11:27 AM

I apologize for my absolute lack of awareness in responding to your posts and questions.  I've had my hands full recently, moving and getting a new job that's honestly a bit more than I was capable of and I'm neck-deep in research and study to get myself up to speed..  I thank you all for your valuable feedback, and as I am able to get my feet under me again I will be able to look at putting more love into this mod.  I will happily add the translation request Xandoria. That will come soon.   I will also look into adjusting spawn rates a little better, to create a better cap for spawns after a certain number have been reached.

Gikame  Horses will spawn in already generated terrain if you've run the world generation then added the mod after. It could take a little while, but if the conditions are favorable for their spawning then they will turn up.  Draft horses like the more temperate regions with a bit more rainfall and forestry, and our Arabians are suited to larger plains, warmer climates, and less rain.

💬 Nomad7824, Aug 18th 2023 at 12:03 AM

@Gikame In my experience, I loaded this into a world my friends and I were playing on and horses turned up not soon after. It seemed to me they would come as a large group and then disappear/leave as a large group, but they did appear in lands we had already explored.

💬 Nomad7824, Aug 18th 2023 at 12:02 AM
💬 Gikame, Aug 14th 2023 at 6:18 PM

I understand you said to reach out via discord but I hope, as I dont use it much, that reaching out here still works out.


One question I have and its simple: Where would we be able to find the horses? Obviously Plains and the like, but would they spawn in primarily newly generated terrain or also spawn more as you play in old terrain?
My world is now quite old, Im in Year 3 (just entered) and I would love to add a few horses to my homestead for traveling! But if they spawn in only newly generated terrain I might have a problem as I explored all 8 directions for quite a bit now for new trees lol

💬 Sad_yst, Jul 18th 2023 at 7:36 PM

as an equestian,i love this
will you guys add more gaits? like trot and canter in the future? <3
there's also a bug where when swimming in deep water the horse strafes towards closest land which is quite annoying qwp


💬 Tripalink, Jul 17th 2023 at 5:42 AM

great mod! a more fleshed out version should be base game eventually. but this is seriously fantastic for now

Runehawk Feverstone Wilds will be updated with the donkies as well, once we get the saddles implemented and testing proves successful. 😄

💬 RuneScholar, Apr 27th 2023 at 4:50 AM

Hey, I use Feverstone's Wilds rather than this mod since it includes horses as well. Will that be updated with the donkeys as well or should I install both?

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Apr 27th 2023 at 2:18 AM

A fresh release for 1.18 compatibility is finally available!  Also introducing, donkies! Our newest breed, donkies are a bit slower than their larger kin, but sturdy carriers! They've been used as pack animals for many years, and our goal was to bring this hardy worker to life in Vintage Story!

Currently, saddles for the donkies are WIP (Work-in-progress), however be on the lookout for an upcoming release to bring them to your capable hands.

Ride swiftly! ... or not.

💬 Rhonu, Apr 22nd 2023 at 2:40 PM

Seconding the request to please update this to 1.18 as well. I want to play in a world without any fantasy animals/monsters this time (also using the no monsters mod) so while I do like the Feverstone Wilds mod it adds a lot of critters I don't need. Would really like access to horses though.

💬 Miloski, Apr 20th 2023 at 12:31 AM

when will this be updated to stable 1.18?

💬 Shannymara, Feb 23rd 2023 at 8:19 PM

I'm also having the problem with wild horses not taming. I right clicked on one with both a carrot and a carrot bundle. There was no feedback and the stack size of the carrots/carrot bundles didn't change. Here's a list of the current mods I have installed. Using latest stable version of VS. I hope this helps. Thank you!

I'm going to try to narrow down which mod(s) are conflicting and will update this if I find anything concrete. CoB, which I'm using on a private family server on my LAN, has taming dogs and cats so that's the first one I'll test.

💬 macoto_hino, Feb 21st 2023 at 8:32 AM

It's like being like a wild boar or a bighorn sheep. I understand.
But in the case of wild boars and bighorn sheep, there are generations, and they become less hostile as they go through those generations, but in the case of horses, it is the degree of nostalgia, right?
Are you saying that automatic feeding from troughs does not affect Obedience?

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Feb 20th 2023 at 7:05 PM

macoto_hino -- The horses eat from troughs as a passive way to increase their portions eaten, or you can hand-feed them. They have proper breeding mechanics now, and will produce offspring (foals) according to their type (draft or arabian).

Mommacera -- What mod conflict issue? Maybe there's something I can look at to better our mod's compatibility with other mods.

💬 macoto_hino, Feb 19th 2023 at 1:16 PM

In v1.4.1, horses can now eat feed from troughs, but what are the effects of eating feed from troughs?
Is there any maintenance or increase in nostalgia?

💬 Mommacera, Feb 17th 2023 at 4:31 PM

I have run into an issue I cant seem to tame the horses I right-click with dry grass but nothing happens it doesn't even remove one of the grasses I am not sure if its a bug or maybe a mod conflict of mine any ideas on how to fix it? or am i doing it wrong


Nvm its a mod conflict issue


💬 macoto_hino, Feb 16th 2023 at 9:30 AM

Forgive me for excluding the language files before installing the mod and checking it out.
Sorry for spoiling the game for those who have not played it.

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Feb 16th 2023 at 7:15 AM

macoto_hino  You're correct. Caught me setting up the code for a new addition! The donkey is currently not available so you won't yet see it in game. I'll be combing through the code and making adjustments, and I've corrected those already for the upcoming release of this new creature! Stay tuned!

💬 macoto_hino, Feb 16th 2023 at 1:46 AM

Thanks for the long awaited update!
I'm translating the language for the additions and corrections as soon as possible. The description of the newly added donkey colt is wrong about it being an Arabian horse, right?

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Feb 15th 2023 at 11:25 PM

Thank you all for your graciousness, bug reports, patience, and support. 1.4.1 is released for your riding pleasure which should fix quite a few issues. Please continue providing that wonderful feedback!

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Feb 7th 2023 at 11:11 AM

Greetings all! I apologize for the time away from this project. With our release of Feverstone Wilds and the many adjustments there, my attention to the dedicated horses mod has been put on pause. That, and I've been having to handle some recent disruptions with work. I plan on visiting this mod very soon with some updates, and thank you all for your patience in the meantime. Safe travels!

💬 GamingToast, Jan 26th 2023 at 8:45 PM

So I've read in the comments that you already adjusted the spawn conditions, but horses keep Spawning inside my Buildings which was funny at first but it's getting a bit annoying because every day there's a horse somewhere in my buildings. Is it possible to set it, so they don't spawn inside?

💬 BorkBiscuit, Jan 16th 2023 at 1:29 AM

Are there any gates that allow my horses to pass through?  Would be nice if my draft could fit thorugh the double doors.

💬 Katlamos, Jan 8th 2023 at 4:24 PM

Since this runs on PetAI, can you set things like the dogbeds as a respawn point for your horse if it dies?

💬 chacra, Dec 13th 2022 at 3:30 PM

for some reason i cant mount my horse or any horse for that matter ?!?

💬 macoto_hino, Dec 13th 2022 at 6:25 AM

So it should be compatible?
Essentially, if you put food in the feed container that can be used as horse feed, the horse should eat it on its own, right?
For some reason, they don't eat it in my environment.
Is there some other mod that is affecting it in some way?

💬 RuneScholar, Dec 10th 2022 at 7:58 AM

Is the Arabian horse saddle supposed to be untextured white?

💬 Dragonwx52, Dec 7th 2022 at 8:36 PM

Bonjour, j'ai un soucis avec le mod quand je regar dans gestionnaire de mods le mod me dit "Impossible de résoudre les dépendances du "mod". Vérifiez le journal".

Je joue sur la version 1.17.9 du jeu et avec la version 1.3.9-rc.2 du mod.



💬 AhrondusAuthor, Dec 4th 2022 at 2:00 AM

macoto_hino -- Yes, the troughs should still hold compatibility in vanilla and Vanilla Varients in the most recent update.

fipil -- I will look into the code. Look for an update soon! As for the horse colors, we currently do not have a system for the game to recognize the current horse skin and to keep it similar when the foals grow up. It is an intended feature, however.

Stejer -- Currently, crossbreeding is disabled. In a future update, we will implement crossbreeding as well as additional attributes to be bred for and to obtain through a bit of taming luck and domestication. There's many ideas we have for the horse mod, including donkeys, pullable carts/farming tools/etc, which might be implemented in separate compatible mods for users to pick and choose which features they would like to implement.

Thank you all for your continued support and feedback!

💬 macoto_hino, Nov 27th 2022 at 5:50 PM

It is listed as adding Vanilla Variant troughs compatibility in v1.3.8, but it is still compatible in v1.3.9-rc.2, right?
However, I have a feeling that the horses will not feed on troughs made from any kind of wood.
I notice that the horse's nostalgia level is always low.

💬 fipil, Nov 26th 2022 at 9:45 PM

Hi @Ahrondus, unfortunatelly, it seems tha the latest version v1.3.9-rc.2 introduces a bug. The mares stopped giving birth to foals, A mare is pregnant and after some time it isn't pregnant and no foal around.
I also noticed the following errors in server log:

26.11.2022 17:37:05 [Fatal] System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Maybe it's not related with the bug, maybe it is?
MAybe the mod is going to spawn a foal and this bug prevents it? Just an idea.

Please, can you fix it?
Thanks! Fipil

💬 Stejer, Nov 26th 2022 at 1:33 PM

question! Can the arabian and draft horses crossbreed? and if so the offspring will be any different or will it be the species of the mother or father?

Also some sugestions, make the normal walking speed of the horses a bit faster, the sprinting is too fast for a lot of terrain (i keep hitting trees and moutains) and the walking speed is slower than if you were on foot.

could you also add donkey and mules, like make the donkey a bit rarer on the wild but way better in carryweight than draft horses and the mule a bit of both (i dunno if the program/code would let you crossbreed two different mobs that arent from the same species so its just an idea). 

could you make so when you are riding the horse you cant hit them, like make so weapons pass through them and make them unable to take damage from the player while mouted, i was wanting to hunt while on horse back but I keep hitting my horse with the spears and arrows, as you can imagine this isnt very good.

could you also make, maybe for the late to mid game, drafting tools and the like, you could make those big plowers thingies to plow more soil, maybe give the soil some small boosts to fertility cause you are mixing more the soil, carriages so you can transport a lot of goods at once or make so you can use the horses like a slightly worse windmill. you can make so only the draft horses are capable of using those.

just throwing some ideas but my priority is the first question, thnx

💬 fipil, Nov 20th 2022 at 5:34 PM

Hi @Ahrondus. We was using the version v1.3.6. There were some issues with horse colors. A foal had some color, for example black, and when it grew up, the color has been changed to some other color.

So we updated the mod to the latest version v1.3.9-rc.2, today. We experienced some issues:

  • Some our horses changed skin colors after update.
  • Some our horses has been respawned on slightly different locations (a couple of meters, but for example ouside the enclosure).
  • All our saddles disappeared. (Probably because you added a new arabic saddles?)

Luckily horses didn't lost their taming and obedience levels nor their names, so it's fine.
Those described issues are minor issues and we can live with them :). 

Only big issue for us is the foal/adult color issue. It'd be nice if a foal grows up to the adult with the same skin color.
Maybe this is already fixed in the v1.3.9-rc.2 version? We didn't try yet.

Anyway, thank you for the amazing mod! We enjoy horses a lot :-).


💬 fipil, Nov 16th 2022 at 8:58 PM

Thanks @Ahrondus. I'm looking forward to the described features 😀 Especially carts, that can be pulled. It would be nice that a player could be sitting in the cart 😋

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Nov 15th 2022 at 7:10 PM

For the most recent version, please update to 1.3.9-rc.2!

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Nov 15th 2022 at 5:30 PM

fipil Hey Fipil! The horses have varying speeds based on breed currently. There is only a size difference based on gender currently. However we are currently in research on a system to implement statistics for horses, such as HP, size, stamina, colors, etc.. It will be a goal to be able to breed horses to produce certain attributes. Horse training very well could fall into that category!  The current idea for horse breeds is to provide a baseline variety for different tasks we have planned, such as Draft horses being able to pull large carts while Arabians can only pull small ones.
---- These features however are a long ways out. So sit tight and make sure to follow us for updates! Current short-term goals are the releases of a few more breeds, then implementation of varying saddles. Check out the mod description for further details!

💬 fipil, Nov 15th 2022 at 4:57 PM

Hi @Ahrondus I've a question: is the speed of horses different for each horse? Or is it the same? It would be very nice if the speed slightly varies per horse and it plays a role when a stallion covers a mare, so it simulates some genetics behaviours, taking an attributes of parents, combining them with some little randomness etc. It would be nice if training of an horse could improve some of their attributes, such is speed or an ability to jump over an obstacles etc.
We are planning to organize races on the server. The described ideas could nicely support the horse trade.
Just an idea 😀

💬 fipil, Nov 14th 2022 at 7:26 AM

@Ahrondus, thankyou very much for answer. I finally found the reason why it didn't work on my Singleplayer. :-) The reason was the fact that I run two different VS versions side by side. I've the old one 1.16.5, which has data stored in the default location %appdata%/VintagestoryData. The new version 1.17.9 has configured a different data folder by the Vintagestory.exe --dataPath parameter. I also had to modify the modPaths property in the clientsettings.json file in the new data folder.
But what I forgot was to modify the same modPaths property in the serverconfig.json file as well!
So the 1.17.9 server was looking for your mod into the wrong location and it didn't find one. That was the reason why it didn't work.
I hope that my explanation helps anyone else :-).

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Nov 12th 2022 at 8:28 PM

Uthris Their spawn conditions are very particular now, and I've made them more rare. After seeing them all over the place and with multiple suggestions to reduce their spawn quantity, I've done just that. Try searching along the edge of forests and plains. They favor having few trees, but too many is unsuitable for their large hides!
- Also, they will spawn in both new and existing chunks. It might take a moment for them to appear, or just that their new spawn conditions are preventing them from appearing in chunks you'd previously find them in.

Good luck!

💬 Uthris, Nov 12th 2022 at 6:36 PM

Not sure, but no horses spawn in the wild on my server. Don't see anything in the logs that seem relevant either....Mod tab is there in creative and can spawn one in just fine

Will they only start showing up in new chunks?

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Nov 11th 2022 at 10:59 PM

fipil I reduced the horse spawns a little bit. I will run a quick test to see if there's something more going on with the horses in creative inventory.
--Edit: Fipil, I cannot replicate the issue you're having with the horses in single-player. They show up in the creatures tab for me, and I can spawn them with the command:   /entity spawn feverstonehorses:horse-male-draft.
-------For anyone else having this issue please comment so I can look into it further!

@Tels The errors about horse entities being set to Null is because I changed the entity file, and therefore changed their entityID. The errors will appear in chunks previously rendered that the previous horses were already spawned in, and the game will remove them automatically.

The foal code has been fixed, and will be released in an upcoming fix very shortly.

Once again I thank you all for your reports so I can get these solved ASAP!

💬 Tels, Nov 11th 2022 at 8:33 PM

For some reason, when I use this mod along with the rest of my modlist, it makes it so that logs from trees give much more firewood when converted into firewood. Maple and some trees would give 20, while pine would give 10 firewood. Very strange.

💬 Petyr, Jun 15th 2022 at 12:14 PM

The horses deseperatly need to be milkable.

Nomadinc tribes of Asia lived of the horse blood and milk. Adding this simple feature could lead to totally new way of playing (nomadism - since then you could easily travel with your food source).

If you could provide the same features for horses the critters mod provided that would be game changing (transport bags and horses being milkable).

💬 iotid, Feb 14th 2022 at 3:49 PM

Also going to chime in that these fellas are massive at double the height and more width than a medieval expansion's aurochs, although they feel relatively right when you're looking up at them.  Maybe we should ask ME to scale their aurochs up to be a bit more true to life instead!  The horses are fun to ride on a straightaway, the animations are lovely, but the turning is indeed awkward.  Also one request--could it be possible to pick up foals with Gerste's medium animal cages?  Keep having them pushed out of a wide pen with 3x high fencing by their parents.  Locally added that to the cage config myself, but it'd be nice as a default bit of compatability.

💬 Lash, Feb 13th 2022 at 8:52 PM

@Ahrondus Oh I know horses are pretty big, grew up with them. Just in terms of gameplay they are extremely awkward and slow to turn which makes them a pain :/ Is there any way to adjust their turn radius or just how responsive they are?

💬 Verlia, Feb 13th 2022 at 8:09 PM

The horses are actually accurate to size. Horses are quite big, unless you're comparing them to ponies or Arabian horses. Which might be what you're thinking of. Mules or donkies would be smaller as well. Draft horses would be about 2-3x the size of these horses. :)

💬 AhrondusAuthor, Feb 13th 2022 at 8:05 PM

Much needed mod. Thanks

Edit: Lag spikes have been solved.

YourCreator The Hay Bundle is another taming specialized item that will be implemented in a future patch. Thank you for making a translation! I will add it in an upcoming content patch!

Hay not present in mod, but lang string exists.
Russian translation here

Amigurumi Thank you for the compliment! We're proud of our current animations, and can't wait to add others!
As for the horseshoes: We'll take that under consideration in a future update, but it would likely be purely cosmetic. The benefits of horseshoes are for horses travelling on hard surfaces frequently, and the majority of terrain in Vintage Story is soft. Things like dirt, gravel, and sand wouldn't normally require shoeing a horse for, but for travel on stone and roads horseshoes would surely be recommended!

The animation on these looks great. Are you planning on adding things like horseshoes and such later for upgrades?
