Some people think this mod is unbalanced, so here’s how to configure the mod to make it more fair

/gamerule grapplingLength <maximum length of grappling hook>
/gamerule grapplingBlocks <blocks which grappling hook can attach to>
/gamerule grapplingNonBlocks <blocks which grappling hook can't attach to

Examples:

/gamerule grapplingLength 10
/gamerule grapplingBlocks minecraft:cobblestone,minecraft:stone
/gamerule grapplingNonBlocks minecraft:cobblestone,minecraft:stone

Reset to defaults:

/gamerule grapplingLength 0
/gamerule grapplingBlocks any
/gamerule grapplingNonBlocks none
