As is their tradition, Minecraft Forums has broken the post a bit. I'll fix it when I get a bit of free time.. for now, good luck!



Have you ever tried to build a huge city, only to find out Minecraft doesn't have quite what you need?Maybe you managed to get the foundations in, but it lacks furnishings and a sense of... life?Or, maybe you just want to get some awesome Bukkit features on a Forge server, and utilize the power of Forge when doing so?If so, this is the mod for you! when I finish making it...i


Check out the official AtlanticCraft Mod Review!
Covers both this and my FlenixRoads modFlenixCities is a mod all about cities, and everything involved in making them! It'll focus on aesthetics, mainly blocks, but will add some other major features too:- A digital/physical economy system- Hundreds of NPCs with their own roles and AI- A crime rating- A player ID system (with full security features)- And much more in the future...


Planned Features
This is a huge mod, so I'll only cover the main things I listed above for now.
  • Full Digital/Physical economy.
    Yup, you read that right. All the goodness of your favourite Bukkit economy plugin, with the greatness that is Forge.
    The economy system is simple. You have physical money, and can open a bank account. You can interact with the bank account via an ATM or a banker (coming soon). In the future, the economy will be used all over the mod for both NPC and Player trading systems!
  • Hundreds of new NPCs!
    Right up from kids playing in the street to police who'll hunt and arrest you for committing crimes. The API* I'm building for the mod will contain plenty of AI for anyone to use!
    Script-able NPC's (ie Citizens plugin) aren't currently planned, but I may add them in the future
    NPC's are still in the baby stages. The banker exists as an example of them.
  • Crime Rating!
    Each player will have a temporary criminal record. When committing a crime (for example, killing an NPC), you'll be given Crime Points and the police will try and get you. They'll fine, arrest, or kill you - depending on the crime.
    This feature is not yet implemented.
  • Player ID System!
    It's a lot simpler than it sounds. Players can get ID cards, and these cards can be used to access certain blocks!
    The system is already possible (and MUCH more advanced) when using ComputerCraft. This is just a simple alternative.
    IDs can be used with card readers to do things like activate redstone, unlock doors and open special chests.
    This feature is not yet implemented.
  • API to create your own modules!
    Are you a developer? I'm making an API to create your own modules! The benefits of a module are that you can utilize my ores, use my money, get easy access to NPC AI and even tie in to world generation!
That sounds great! When will it be ready?
That depends on what you mean by "ready". This is a relatively big project, and I have other mods to work on and a server to run- so it wont be quick. I plan to release an update for each new building set I finish (for example, when I finish the supermarket blocks, and the cashier NPC, I'll release it as the "Supermarket Update". The generation will be the last thing I do, because all the buildings and stuff have to be done first!

Modules![//todo. Just download 'em all for now and play around]
Downloads:
FlenixCities is a MODULAR mod.You can download modules from my site. I'll add details on what each does later, but for now just try them out.If you already had Cities, you probably want all of them. http://silvania.co.uk/mods/downloads/

License: This mod is made solely by Flenix of Silvania Studios, and is copyrighted.You may not, in any situation, repost on any site without my express written permission. Currently, only sites I am affliciated with, as well as Minecraft Forums and Planet Minecraft, can host this.

Regarding modpacks: I do require permission for ANY modpack! I generally say yes to private and server modpacks. Public modpacks, you need to have your own website (or at least dedicate part of your own website) to the pack. It must also have it's own forum which anyone can register on.
Sorry, but i don't want this going in every public pack there is, hence this restriction. I feel it's pretty fair, as this way only the real packs who have a chance of surviving will be using it.

FAQ
Are you planning to add X block?Check the planned section below. If it's not there, then suggest I add it and I might consider it.

When will X feature be added?There's no official timeline yet. When I do make one, it'll be available on my forums, so you'll have to be signed up there to access it (along with other nice goodies)

Add ComputerCraft support!As much as I'd LOVE to do this, dan200 was pretty adamant that he doesn't want me to extend CC for my computers to work as a CC computer. So, as much as it sucks, it's never gonna happen - out of my control, and I'm not going to recode computercraft for a minor feature like that.Maybe if you're lucky I'll add Minesweeper. One day.

The ATM is causing a crash!
That's because you're using unsupported versions of Forge. Use the recomended build; for info on why, read this: http://www.silvania.co.uk/blog/?p=123

Suggestions and Bug ReportsI'm all ears for any suggestions and I'll try and fix any bugs! You can post either as a comment here, or you can post on my forums. Posting on my forum means it's easier for both you and me to track your issue or suggestion, so go ahead and do that! The forum is new, so post around and liven the place up a bit too!Click me to go to the forums!Alternatively, contact me via Twitter!@SilvaniaStudiosInstallationIf you're struggling with installing Forge or my mods, I've made a nice little video!I'm not good at talking and stuff, so sorry for that. But, it's better than nothing!Other mods!I've also made a road mod, called FlenixRoads, which will go perfectly alongside this. When generation is done, Roads will get generated if you have this mod installed!Go get it!Official ServerI have a creative server, running FlenixRoads, FlenixCities and Remula.It's main purpose is for you to build cities, and I can use those cities in FlenixCities world generation. But drop in and just chill, have some fun! All are welcome so long as you're friendly Posted ImageGo to the official post!

I like the idea very much.

Is it supposed to take a long time to build the terrain at startup? It never did get past the building terrain screen.

Are you on MC 1.5.2?

It MAY require FlenixRoads to be installed, it was originally going to be an addon then I separated it.
It doesn't do any world gen, so I can't think of any other reason why it might freeze there...

I had to use a fresh jar and a new Forge install to get it to work. It must have been conflicting with some other mod.

I am looking forward to seeing it in action.
It would be really nice if you could make this like Sim City (without the server crashes ;D) with simulation of the typical City Life so that the NPC's are going to work in the morning and so on...

Ok, any chance you can give me a list of the mods? I'll take a look and see what I can find the fix the bug.

That would be quite complex to do to be honest. I've never looked at anything like pathing NPCs or advanced AI like that. I might consider it after the final release but it wont be anything early.

Most textures are now working on 1.6.1 and everything seems to be going smoothly. However, I've left my power supply at home and I'm out with my laptop right now, so I wont have enough battery life to get everything updated, compiled, tested and uploaded. So, expect the update some time tomorrow :)

Update:

Everything is now working in 1.6 as it was in 1.5, minus the GUI opening. I am at a point where I would be happy to update, but before I do I'm going to add some new features and models in.

My plan for v0.1.0 is to add the following:
- Digital Currency working (I'm almost there, but I believe there's an NBT bug in Forge for 1.6 stopping it working)
- 4 different options for the block which the ATM is mounted in. I'm looking for opinions on what they should be by default, but at the moment three of them are Stone Brick and City White or City Grey (two of the structure blocks from the mod). Opinion for what the fourth should be?
- Shop Drinks Fridge and Minifridge (Maybe with GUI, if I can get the GUIs working)
- Floating Shelves, without functionality

What other things would you like to see in the initial 1.6 release?
