Better Than Wolves is organized into distinct “Ages” that represent different stages of Steve’s technological progress. Each Age in turn may be organized into separate Tiers that represent separate tasks that the player must achieve in order to progress to the next.
- Make sure minecraft is not running.
- Install Risugami’s ModLoader
- Install the client-version of Minecraft Forge
- Open your minecraft.jar with Winrar or other program
- Delete the META-INF folder in minecraft.jar (you should have already done this when you installed ModLoader)
- Copy all the files and folders in this mod’s MINECRAFT-JAR folder into your minecraft.jar (overwriting any existing files)
- run setup.reg
The following instructions are organized chronologically in terms of what the player must accomplish in order to progress forward in the mod. If you are just starting out with Better Than Wolves, then it is recommend you commence at the top of the instructions and work your way downwards. This mod is rather complex, and it is my hope that organizing these instructions in this fashion will make it all easier to digest for a new player.
