  3. Hi Saxe82,

    got the same issue as Brishgrimm.
    I can´t upload your Mod to my Server cause he did not accept Filename with umlauts.
    Can you fix this please ?

    1. Hello, I also uploaded the Better Vanilla to a server. You are right, the png files with umlauts are not uploaded. Nevertheless, the images are displayed in the game (on the server), since the images will probably be replaced by the client. So the Better Vanilla can be played on the server without any problems.
      I tested this with a GPortal server and uploaded files with FileZilla.
      You are welcome to test it!
      Server name: Better Vanilla Testserver (no password)
      IP: Port: 26940
      Runtime: limited

  4. love the mod so far, a very nice challenge and about to do my first horde night (120m days).

    I have the mod downloaded to a server through pingperfect and none of the custom mod icons display in the crafting menu/inventory/toolbelt

    any help would be appreciated, i already downloaded the mod on the client side as well but to no avail.

  5. Hi! I love your mod a lot for the Better Vanilla changes! I was wondering though, for a new server that already has BV installed, is there anyway to get the regular Vanilla food items to appear alongside the BV items? I tried editing them back into the items.xml file in the Saves folder, but it doesn’t work.
