Tonight I've made it possible for all mobs to have the chance to drop a custom head! The chances go up if you have a looting sword too! But! This also applies to players! - But with players, once you've got one of their head, your chances of getting another drastically go down!

All done without client mods
We've teased it in spawn for a couple days, but now it's finally here! The hoverbike, and my god, it's a beauty!
Using this thing, you can glide across the lands and seas with ease and insane speed! The hoverbike can climb upto 3 blocks at a time, and surfs across the surface of the water! And it's fast. Like really fast...
