Hey there, it's KodaichiZero, the original creator of this mod.
I wasn't sure where to post this, but this seemed like the best place for fans of the Fairy Factions mod since my other thread is locked. It's been a long time since I stopped modding for Minecraft, and due to my current situation I don't really see myself ever going back to it. Times have changed and so have I. But I still often look back on the time I spent here, and I'm really proud of the content I was able to create and how much enjoyment my fans got out of my work. I think that the Fairy Factions mod was probably my greatest accomplishment for a few different reasons, one of which was the design for the fairies themselves. So I'm taking that character design and actually doing something bigger with it:
I've decided at this point to start making a Unity game! Why? Because making a full, proper video game is something I've always wanted to do. I've been working with the Unity engine for a little while and I'm pleased with how easy it is to work with and what I've been able to accomplish so far. The most important thing to me was to be able to make the game feel nice, and I've already figured out how to make the player have a hover ability and controls that feel really nice for a 3D platformer. I also want to make the game have a bright and colorful aesthetic, with cute and cartoony character/enemy designs, great animations and a lot of humor. Now my next step is to do some 3D modelling and make a simple model of my character. For this, I need a proper 2D profile picture showing a front, side and back view of the character. I'm not very good at drawing though, so I need some help with this. Here's what I've been able to mock up so far:
As you can see I'll need a proper artist to render the fairy character in a non-blocky, multi-polygonal fashion. I'm confident that I'll be able to make a good-looking 3D model once I have a 2D image to work off of. So if anyone who was a fan of this mod happens to be a good artist, I could really use your help. After the model's done, I'm going to work on a quick mock-up game (a couple months' work) with a few untextured levels just to give people a taste of what the final product might be like (a couple years' work).
So if you want to contribute in any way, or even just chat with me about anything, feel free to send me an email at [email protected], or add me on Skype with "kodaichizero" (I'm in Canada). Don't PM me on these forums because I probably won't see it. I hope you understand why I reluctantly can't come back to modding, and I also hope you might get some enjoyment out of the game I'll be making.
Looking forward to talking with some of you!
