Ive been a big fan of Bloons Tower Defense (the fifth game to be exact) and I thought 'What would it be like if we had a Super Monkey throwing darts at a Wither?'
Now, when I say 'Bloons Tower Defense in Minecraft', I dont mean all the various bloons as enemies. Im only looking at the Towers themselves.
The way I see it, we could add a Monkey mob to the game that you can turn into a held item and that would allow you to craft it into newer mobs. Like, an Arrow with a piece of Leather under it becomes a Dart, and you combine said Monkey item with the Dart to make the Dart Monkey Tower. Or you can make a Boomerang, Wizard Hat, and various other items to make the various towers of the game.
Now, as far as how to use them, I'd take a guess at them being like infinite dispensers but you cant collect the projectiles they fire, much like an Infinity Bow.
So, if anyone would care to take a shot at such a mod, contact me and I'll lend what knowledge I can to assist.
Bananas are dropped 0.5% of the time from Jungle Leaves. 1 Banana can be crafted into 4 Money. Money can be planted to make a Banana Sapling, which grows into a Banana Tree. Banana Trees will occasionally drop Bananas.
Monkey Villages spawn in the Plains and Ice Plains biomes, about twice the rarity of NPC Villages. They are made of Sandstone huts. 1 Monkey spawns in each one.
Monkeys spawn in Monkey Villages. They can be equipped to fight for you.
Equipping your Monkeys
You can equip Monkeys with items that make them loyal to you. They are the following items:
Dart Monkeys are equipped with a Dart and 20 Money. The Dart is crafted like you said. They shoot darts at attacking mobs.
Boomerang Throwers are equipped with a Boomerang and 25 Money. The Boomerang is crafted like this:
They throw Boomerangs that come back to the monkey. They penetrate through 3 mobs, without upgrades.
You equip them with a Sniper and 25 Money. A Sniper is crafted like this:
They shoot at mobs. It is impossible to see the bullets, and it hits the mob instantly.
Ninja Monkeys are equipped with a Shuriken and 30 Money. A Shuriken is crafted like this:
They throw shurikens really fast.
Ice towers are equipped with an Ice block and 30 Money. To make it much easier to get, Ice now has a crafting recipe:
Ice towers shoot waves of Ice. Ice freezes enemies.
Glue Gunners are equipped with Glue and 25 Money. Glue is crafted like this:
(shapeless recipe) Glue Gunners shoot glue blobs at enemies, which slow them down.
Monkey Apprentices are equipped with a Wizard Hat and 40 Money. Wizard Hats are crafted like this:
They shoot Magic Orbs at enemies.
Upgrading your Monkeys
You can pay money to upgrade your monkeys. All upgrades from BTD5 are here, except Special Abilities. I'm not going into details, though, as that would take forever.
Remember how I didn't mention Super Monkeys before? Well, they're different. They protect the village, like Iron Golems. You can also make them loyal to you, by giving them 64 Money. You can upgrade them just like any normal tower, without the TOTMG upgrade. This is because it turns into a building, and that would be weird. However, if you attack them, they will attack you. They shoot darts really fast.
Machines are stationary towers that are crafted and then placed down. There are 2 types of machines:
Tack Shooters are crafted like this:
(The wool is pink wool) It fires 8 tacks at once.
The Bomb Tower is crafted like this:
It shoots bombs that have a small explosion. It destroys some blocks, but not the Bomb Tower.
