The time has come to move on. The time has come for the end of the mod.
With the growing hate for non-forge mods I can not conceivably continue to work on this project.
Also, with absolutely no indication from Mojang that they have any plans to fix or improve villages or villager behavior (AI) I can see no reason to continue this project. Even though tens of thousands of people show interest in the subject of villages and villagers expanding, nothing has been changed since villages were first introduced way back in beta. Villages are not the only structures to be seemingly forgotten...
Anyway, thank you all for the past support, I am unemployed and must concentrate on my own life and well being at the moment. My family must come first, so I bid you all good farewell and bless you.
August: NO forge. I REPEAT! No forge version. Unless someone else does it. I do not have the time.
*** July, 2013***
Update to Minecraft 1.6.2 is available!
With the recent zombie infiltration the villagers have decided to expand into new territories.
This mod allows villages to generate in all major biomes. Forest, Extreme Hills, Jungle, Taiga, Swamp, Ice Plains, and of course the normal Plains and Desert.
Now that the villagers have had time to get more familiar with newly discovered regions, they have started upgrading their buildings with new materials! Forests, Extreme Hills, Jungles, and Taigas buildings have all taken on new looks. No new buildings yet, that is to come perhaps. But enjoy the new look and feel of villages everywhere.
Please do backups before trying any new mods.
*Note: New villages will only appear in new chunks. Old chunks (from existing worlds) will remain unchanged. So travel, or start a new world to see the new look of the villages.*
I'm including three downloads, a "Normal" version, a "Medium" version, and a "Extreme" version. The "Normal" version is default minecraft spawning. The "Medium" version has double the chance as "Normal", and the "Extreme" version has double the chance as "Medium". The "Extreme" version is mainly for fun and testing.
Client and Server - Install in the .jar file.
