tModLoader Keybrands+

A rather simple mod that expands upon what I think is a rather interesting weapon, the Keybrand. Nobody really bothered to do so extensively so I figured I might be the one to do it.
Simply put, it adds plenty of upgrades to it, as well as more before it, potentially allowing you to beat the game by only swinging an oversized key!*
*Not all bosses may be possible without additional use of Magic/Ranged weapons, so try at your own risk

This is inspired by other mods (for other sandbox games) that add keyblades.

Just so you know this mod is only loosely balanced.

Please note that I will not be updating this post for a while, so for further information I suggest you join the Discord server for the latest news and updates.
Yeah, I'm lazy, but that's 'cause I've got other things I need to do

Here are some external links, might as well get these out of the way first:

Pretty big problem with the current version. It deletes every other crafting recipe in the game when enabled.

Any chance on getting a list of the bosses/mobs that drop the Zenithite+ I got some but I don't remember where from. The mod has been really fun so far.

The current list of enemies that drop Zenithite+ are Tim, Doctor Bones, Rune Wizard, Nympth, Martian Probe, and Betsy (this enemy specifically is limited to 1 per session)
You can even obtain Zenithite+ from Gold Birds!

Did you guys delete the mod? Since my computer got fixed back in January, this mod was stuck in the back of my mind and only remembered it as of today and I couldn't find it in the mod browser.

yeah, i have the same problem aswell but when my friend tried to get it he said that he couldn't and since i already had the mod i deleted it and then i went into the mod browser to find it but i wasn't there so we think that it was taken down for some reason
