note: I'm not American or English, but Dutch. So excuse my (probably) horrible language/grammar.
[3-06-2011] Rewritten my post. (thanks enigmaticmuffin, forgot about the defenses)
[3-06-2011] Implemented enigmaticmuffin's tomahawk idea.
[5-06-2011] Implemented DarthPablo666's wasteland idea.
[8-06-2011] Added requimrar as the main modder.
[12-06-2011] Added screens of the progress.
[3-07-2011] Moved to modding discusion.


What if... you could wage nuclear war on your friends in Minecraft.
To do so you would need to construct missile's.

Teaser
Thanks to ljjb97


Modders
Requimrar is hard at work to make this idea come true!
But he still needs some help!
Ask him what you can do!


Progress
All thank requimrar for the awesome progress he has made so far.

He also finished the textures.
I will be posting them later.

TL;DR
Build base - build missile - launch missile - build defense - stop missile - nuclear winter

The Missile's
This will be a varied range of missile's. Including:
  • Tomahawk Missile's. Fast, agile, don't have a lot of  collateral damage. They are ideal for close-range base defense or if  your enemy has become cocky to bombard his base with a few of these.
  • ICBMs.  Intercontinental Ballistic Missile's. These boys pack a punch, and  carry a nuclear warhead. The downside is that they are big and slow thus  making it an ideal target for a defense system. They also can't be  launched from under water.
The ICBMs class consist of different  sizes. Smaller, faster and cheaper rockets and heavier, slower, but  everything-destroying rockets.
Because of its nuclear warhead, it will leave fallout and radiation behind. This is very dangerous.
Possibly also:
  • SLBM's: Sea Launched Ballistic Missile. Smaller versions of the ICBM, but can be launched from under the sea.
  • SCUD-rockets: either Tomahawk Missile's or smaller ICBMs on a mobile launching platform.
The Base
To successfully launch you weapons of mass destruction, you  will need a base. This can be a simple wooden shack, a sprawling  underground base or a concrete blast bunker.
Now, of course when you get hit by a missile, the shack won't stand a  chance. So thats why there is concrete. This can withstand an Tomahawk  missile, but will still have problems with an ICBM. But this makes it a  great material for surface access doors. Inside the base you would need  to have a Launching Platform. This  construction, which needs a direct connection to the surface, holds you  missile's and launches them. The Launching Platform is connected to the Targeting Computer.  The targeting computer has a map of its surroundings, and trough a GUI,  you can select where the missile will land. It will have a small map  first, but it can be extended by uploading your maps to it. Possible:  Replacing the nuclear warhead with a satellite, which will send map  information to the targeting computer.

Defense Systems
To defend your base from nuclear attacks, you can install an Patriot Missile Defense System (PMDS).  This system will track incoming rockets and fire smaller ones at it to  intercept and destroy it. This doesn't give you a 100% chance of  stopping them, but will certainly give some protection. The next step  from this is the Orbital Defense Network (ODN).  Several satellite's and an control center can effectively track rockets  right after their launch and launch space-based rockets to them, which  will give you an higher chance of intercepting the missile than the  ground based PMDS. A Tomahawk Missile, which is small, agile and fast  will evade these systems easily, and the larger ICBMs will have some  trouble getting to their destination.

Fallout/Radiation
ICBMs and SLBMs carry nuclear warheads. On impact they destroy a  large part of the area, and leave fallout and radiation behind. This  will leave an area lifeless and dangerous. Dirt will change into sand,  crops and flowers turn into bushes. Trees and grass will be removed (for  the most part), nor does it spawn farm animals. Going here without Radioactive Protection Gear  is fatal. The radiation and fallout will go away over time, but  radiation can spread. So if you don't close off your base, it might be  filled with radioactivity.

Construction
The missile's need a lot of iron to be constructed. The warhead can be  compressing Plutonium. The Missile consist of several parts:
  • The upper part. Being the warhead and a small part of the body
  • The middle body: The body, maybe some flight path computer.
  • The lower body: The booster, some body
Crafting Idea's
Compressed Plutonium

:goldore: = Plutonium Ore
:Flint: = Raw Plutonium
:GoldBar: = Plutonium Ingot

:Logs^: = Plutonium Chunk
:Lava: = Compressed Plutonium

Mining Plutonium Ore gives you Raw Plutonium
:goldore: -> :Flint:
Which can be smelted into Plutonium Ingots
:Furnace: + :Flint: = :GoldBar:
Placing them in your crafting grid in a 2x2 fashion will give you a Plutonium Chunk
:GoldBar: :GoldBar: -> :Logs^:
:GoldBar: :GoldBar:
Surrounding this with obsidian gives you Compressed Plutonium, which is used in warheads.
:obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian:
:obsidian: :Logs^: :obsidian:
:obsidian: :obsidian: :obsidian:

The Warhead
:: :Iron: ::
:Iron: :Yellow: :Iron:
:Iron: :Iron: :Iron:

:Yellow: = Nuclear Charge

The upper part
:: :: ::
:Iron: :Yellow: :Iron:
:Iron: :Iron: :Iron:

:Yellow: = Nuclear or Napalm Warhead

The middle part
:Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
:Iron: :Blue: :Iron:
:Iron: :Iron: :Iron:

:Blue: = Flight path computer? (optional)

The lower part
:Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
:Iron: :Orange: :Iron:
:Iron: :: :Iron:

:Orange: = Some sort of engine.

I have come to an conclusion...
Everyone wants this for smp but there wont be any servers that will have it on them. So I propose that we start the
official nuclear war mod server(clapping and cheering)
this could be run by a person (with a really good internet) or it could be purchased. having a person run it would be much cheaper but having it purchased would have its own strong points

You have my support, the mod looks amazing. I'm no modder, but I'll do my best to publicize it. The banner should help for starters.

The reason for the lack of progress is that Mcp and moadloaderMp didn't come out for 1.7.2 till yesterday so he couldn't do anything

Okay. Will you guys please stop giving me ideas? I freaking know the best targeting system would be a map. But why don't YOU try coding it for a change? WHY? Because you CAN'T. So stop pestering me to do something that you can't even do.

PS: shameless bump
