Do you long for soldiers to patrol your lands from the rouge creeper?
Have you built an epic castle but still missing a handful of guards to guard it?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions you need
UPDATE: I have recently restarted this mod under the new name Battlecraft. It is essentially the same concept with a couple of new features. Check it out.
I didn't really realise people were still posting on this one
At the moment this is in the development stage so no download yet (sorry). But thought i would show people how i intend for this to work.
---------- Creating a Guard --------------
To create a you will need 3 things
- A guard spawn point
This is an item you place down where you want your guard to be spawed.
The recipe will probably be a sign with a bar of gold (to represent payment) But I am open to ideas.
(where represents a sign)
- A guard tunic
The purpose of this item is mainly so we can dye it to change the colour of the guard.
Also opens up some PvP on servers involving different coloured guards.
Recipe will be the same as any other torso armour, but with cloth, plus a dye of your required colour
where is cloth, and is the dye of your choice
- Any Weapon
Any sword or a Bow
Once you add your tunic and weapon to your spawn point (via a custom GUI) you will be prompted for which order you want to give your guard. After this a newly created guard carrying the weapon of your choice and dressed in the colour of your choice.
-------- Guard Orders ---------
Guards will have 4 potential orders
- Stand Guard
Guard will stand at the original spwan point and leave only to kill mobs in sight (returning after killing the mob)
- Follow Player
Continually follow player (until death of either guard or player) and attack mobs in sight
Wander around (with a preference to walk on cobblestone wood or cloth) and attack mobs in sight
- Patrol (most difficult to implement)
Involve following little flags that the player may place (agin attack mobs in sight)
Flags will probably be created using the following recipe
Where is dye is cloth and is a stick
--------- Optional Modes ---------
This part is mainly intended for server play, but I plan to implement a system where guards will attack players to wearing the coloured tunic that the guard is wearing. This was a suggestion by a friend and we thought that this could result in some pretty cool Realm vs Realm server battles. This will probably be one of the last things implemented though.
----------- Roadmap ----------
Create Mob Spawner GUI being implemented now
Create Tunic Item/armour
Finish "Stand Guard" Logic
Alpha 1.0 release
Create Follow Me Logic
Create Wander Logic
Alpha 1.1 release
Create Patrol Flags
Create Patrol Logic
Alpha 1.2 release
----------- Pictures ------------
1st Picture of a proposed guard.
I have changed the helmet slightly since this photo but this is essentially what I plan the guards to look like. Possibly add a shield to the left arm (if not bow armed)
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions, or even if it was a good idea at all?
