It would be great if you could make the archer bandits a separate category for Admins to configure. I'd just keep them off my server, since they can kill from really far away. Tonight I was on a server where it's really hard to find things, finally got mats for a saddle, got a horse, and immediately it got killed by an archer bandit that just barely rendered. The archer was still way too far away for me to defend myself, and it killed my horse in one arrow. So if we could configure them out, that would suit me for my own server.
PS - Almost every time I've gotten killed, it's been by archers, btw. Lol
