Throw out your old bows and arrows, you won’t need them anymore! Arrows Plus overhauls archery in Minecraft.
How to play:
Things to know first
First, know that regular bows will not shoot Arrows Plus arrows, and Arrows Plus bows will not shoot regular arrows.
You should start a new world. If you play on an existing world, then it may be difficult for you to find the trees, which set the features of the mod in motion.
Starting to play

You can only cut these trees if you have a high enough woodcutting level. You gain experience by cutting regular trees or Arrows Plus trees that you are able to cut. You get more experience for cutting Arrows Plus trees. You are notified when you can cut a new tree, but you can view your experience at any time by using the command: /arrowsplus.showxp
Once you’ve cut down an Arrows Plus tree, head over to the crafting table and make the logs into sticks. From here, you can either make bows or arrows with them.
To make bows: Use the exact same recipe as regular Minecraft bows, except, of course, replace regular sticks with the sticks you’ve gotten from the Arrows Plus tree.
To make arrows: Arrows Plus arrows use the same “shape” recipe as regular arrows, but they use iron shards instead of flint for the arrowhead and of course Arrows Plus sticks instead of regular sticks.
To craft iron shards, you must craft a hammer with the following recipe (using regular sticks!):
Place the hammer in a crafting table with an iron ingot to smash it into iron shards. A hammer cannot be damaged, so you only have to make one. (Unless you lose it)
After you’ve made your new weapons
Try them out! Be ready for the new shooting system. It is very different from regular Minecraft.
Description of Attributes:
Now that there are 12 different types of arrows, how do you decide which one you want to shoot?
You can equip a stack of arrows by selecting them and right clicking them. Your bow will now use those arrows until there are no more, after which it will automatically begin to use the most powerful arrows (damage-wise).
If you do not equip arrows, the bow will automatically fire the arrow that does the most damage!!!
You can unequip a stack of arrows by right clicking on them again, or right clicking another stack of arrows.
