What is Castle Defense Mod (CDM)?
Well CDM is amod that makes a new game mode for minecraft.


What Do you do in this mod?
In this made you are king of this land :iapprove: and you must first
1)Find CastleStone
2)Build a Castle
3)Make villager/Job blocks so you can rule over the people
4)Take the game of peaceful and fight wave after wave of enemies(randomly generated and randomly placed about 1000 to 10000 squares a way form your Castle)

What is CastleStone?
CastleStone is a tough (meaning that creepers can not blow it up) :SSSS:  common stone that has the power to do the impossible:
if you make a perimeter with this stone and only this stone, no enemy mobs can spawn in that area no mater how dark it is making a safe zone.

Quote

Maker's note:I want to make it so CastleStone is
1) fast and easy to make or find because you need a lot of it
2) make it have hit points so mobs can destroy it but not so easily (and if you hit it will just work like a normal block)

Any new items?
Yes many: CastleStone,Flags,villager\job blocks,Castle gate,target bow,Castle trunk,king armor,king sword,other weapons,king's scepter,and much more.

Are there going to be new mobs/npc?
Yes lets just start with the friendly mobs

The villagers
They spawn out inside the CastleStone area(only if there's room and only a few at a time)when they spawn they will look for the nearest villager block and use the wood (or dirt) in the castle trunk to make there house then look for a job block.
Jobs include:
Lumberjack
Gets wood and plants trees
Knight
Melee fighter
Posted Image
Archer
Ranged fighter
Chef
Cooks food
Farmer
Makes food
Repair Man
building and heals castle stone
Digger
Digs for dirt, stone, and ores.
Scout
Runs out to see were the next wave of enemies are and give an ETA in days.

The Enemies
Just a few to name right now:
Battering ram team
A group of men with a battering ram that will try to break down your wall
Assassin
A dangerous mob that is invisable until you or  a villager bump in to it or it is attacking, it can open doors but will not attack you in your sleep (due to rage quit) but when you awake it will attack you.
Posted Image
Spy
Spys will turn into one of your villagers and will attack you when the times is right
Traitors
When a villager is un-happy (killing there family, no food, or something like that) for so long there eyes turn red and they will start attacking you
Posted Image

Is this your idea?
yes and no
Yes it is my idea that i am working on, and no it is not all my idea I came up with while playin the game "dwarf fortress" and looking at the "Minecolony","Millénaire", and "Castle Defenders" mods (Please don't attack me for this)

do you need help?
yes I am a C++ coder and even if java's similar I need to learn it and i'm not the best artist. if any one would like to join my team please pm me

Show your support for CDM

Spoiler:

Happiness

Sound like it would be a good mod if you can pull it off. Don't worry about people getting angry from by you taking inspiration from other mods, you mod looks different enough from them for it not to be a problem.

The name however is not. I would recommend changing the name because it may be confused with the mod "Castle Defenders".

You are actually wrong....

Castle Defence =/= Castle Defenders

Almost, but not the same, the name was not taken. As for the skin......go check assassinCraft and tell them. And also the creator of Mo'humans, he can use that skin if he wants.

Although yeah i agree about the copywrite, the name is still far too close for comfort and I can see the author of Castle Defenders getting a little angry. I am not saying to stop making the mod or anything, just it may be better if you slightly change the name

I didn't said he shouldn't change the name, only that it wasn't a copyright issue.

I think changing the name would be a wise move, its also easier to do it now rather then later when people start to actually know the mod. As for ideas i don't have any now would be easier to tell you aftr the first release. I would be noew than happy to anwer any java questions. Just PM me

I would love to help, but all I can do is graphics. Can make anything you want as long as it doesn't involve coding :D

I'm hoping you will finish this mod. Would be a shame if that idea got wasted. BTW I was playing both Millenaire and MineColony mods and what you are doing is something I was hoping MineColony will transform into.

Oh, if you want to change the name, I suggest MineSiege.
