Sorry we haven't been responding that much, personal life intervenes sadly.
Here is a quick rundown of whats up:
We feel that the mod has gotten to bloated and convoluted and we are halting all major updates for it while we reevaluate and restructure what we have.
-updated to Minecraft[1.1.0]
-added a way to get rid of Porkthulhu, just take a nap (but not in your own home)
-added Medusa, anti-gravity, Aphrodite, feather, shield, and farmer stones
-made golem's eyes brighter/darker depending on their health
-fixed conjurers notes: open The Notebook to view them!
List of golems: Golem List
This is a mod by coalheartly, loligator704, and me. We make up the GGE Mod Team.
As the programmer, it is my first time programming a Minecraft mod so I may need some help here and there
This mod expands upon the brilliant idea of being able to build entities out of materials and give them purposes. However, the vanilla golems are sadly lacking in functionality and general awesomeness, so we decided to give you the possibility to not only create golems out of every single solid block (vanilla or otherwise) but we have also allowed them to fight for you and do your bidding.
Not only that, but it allows for these golems to be made via pistons! So with a little creativity, you can have yourself an entirely autonomous factory of golems.
To start, all you need is a pedestal, a head, and some fuel for your pedestal. Then you can begin building your army.
~Pedestals & Fuel:
The pedestal is the workspace on which you will build your golems. A golem cannot be spawned freely in the world like snowmen because they require a soul to power them.
The pedestal is what give your golems their souls. Right clicking on it with an item or your bare hand will open up it inventory and allow you to place in a single stack of any item.
Only items that have a biological or living essence, however, will provide the pedestal with the fuel required to give your golem it's soul.
To see the conversion rate of items per soul, see the Golem Info Sheet and click on the Stats tab on the lower left.
To the right of the health,speed,and attack stats, it will show you how many item of a given item it takes to create a soul and how strong of a soul it will yield (higher tier golems require more souls/stronger souls)
~Knowing and Controlling your Golems:
While you are allowed to build your golems out of any solid block available, you must be mindful of what you make them out of.
Depending upon what materials you place where, your golems can turn out to be radically different. This is because a golem's health, speed, and attack strength are determined by what materials you build your golem out of, and where in the golem those materials are placed.
For example, a golem made of glass will be significantly weaker than a golem made of stone
A golem made of wood will be flammable, while a golem made of dirt won't be
A golem made of wool will be fast, while a golem made of rock will be slow
To see a full chart of the stats of each block, see the Golem Info Sheet and click on the Stats tab on the lower left.
However, it is important to keep in mind that where a certain material is used on a golem will alter the resulting stats.
The health of a golem is most significantly influenced by the material used for it's body (center)The speed of a golem is most significantly influenced by the material used for it's feet (bottom)
And the attack strength of a golem is most significantly influenced by the material used for both of it's arms
I say 'most significantly influenced' because the stats are not only determined by the materials used in their respective body parts, the other blocks in a golem also help determine the stats. So having a golem with a diamond body, but glass for all the rest will still be very weak.
As of v1.1, you are now able to tell how much health a golem has by looking into it's eyes
The brightness of the eyes will tell you just how much health and vigor he has left in him.
Currently there is no way to heal a golem apart from a potion or a healing golem, though we are planning on adding a better way later.
The scepter is your way to command your golems. By holding the scepter in your hand, your golems will freeze whatever they are doing and display their aura.
(The one on the far right is hard to see, but it is stationary/white mode)
Their aura will tell you what order they are currently following.
-Yellow means idle, he will not move or attack.
-Blue means follow, he will follow you like a dog.
-Red means protect, he will follow you and attack any threat that comes near (including creepers, so watch out).
-Brown means working, what this does depends on the golem but it generally means it is following you and is doing it's duty. For example, a mining golem will follow you and collect ores as it sees them.
-White means stationary, it also depends on the golem, but generally means it is either working or protecting, but will not follow you. So for example, a standard golem will stand in place and will only move to attack when there is an enemy nearby, but it will then return.
It is important to keep in mind that not every golem has every state available. The first two golems in that picture above, for instance, are unarmed (heh) and therefore have nothing to protect you with, so they only have the idle and follow states available.
Right clicking on a golem with the scepter will rotate through it's available states to change it's orders.
The Notebook is the golem scientist's log of all discovered unique golem combinations. Every time you find a golem with special traits or abilities, it will be automatically documented into your notebook.
Right clicking with your notebook in hand will open up it's pages to show you all the golems that you have come across and those you have yet to.
Hovering over those combinations that you have uncovered will give you a short description and the recipe for it.
You may also come across pages spread across the world in Shrines, written by a man named The Conjurer during his journey though the art of golem building. Right clicking with them will add them to your notebook so that you can read them.
~Types of Golems
Golems are split into 3 major categories:
Tier1 golems are made up of simple blocks and nothing more.
Tier2 golems make use of the Coreblock, which hold an item to give them extra abilities.
And Tier3 golems which use a special item inside a Coreblock called a Corestone, which allow for more advanced and powerful golem abilities.
Most Tier1 golems are rather dull. There are a few combinations that you may come across that may create something unexpected, but for the most part, the golems will be fairly mundane
Things to note:
-A golems stats are determined by the materials they are made up of. See Golem Stats.
-A golem must have arms to fight and protect you.
-A golem made of flammable substances will be flammable themselves
-Certain block combinations may create life in a form other than a golem
-While Tier1 is mostly dull, there are certain blocks which give golems useful/interesting properties, see the Golem Info Sheet for a full list
Detailed combination descriptions:
-Portable workbench: A golem with no arms and a workbench for a body. Right clicking will open up the crafting grid.
-Fireball golem: Furnace for a body, fires small fireballs at enemies. Activated by [Protection state]
Tier2 golems take advantage of the coreblock in combination with a standard item/block inside of it.
While not all items/blocks give your golem special abilities, you can see a list of all items and their functions on the first page of the Golem Info Sheet
Some detailed combination descriptions:
-Buddy Miner: Iron,Gold,or Diamond Pickaxe, makes a golem that follows you and mines out ores that match what it's arms are made of and deposits them in a chest when he passes by one. Activated by [Work state] Or mines all blocks following the same rules within a 7 block radius of where they were clicked into independent mode. Activated by [Stationary state]
-Buddy Lumberjack: Iron,Gold,or Diamond Axe, makes a golem that follows you and chops down and collects trees (in a way similar to the treecapitator mod) and deposits them in a chest when he passes by one. Activated by [Work state] Or chops down all trees within a 7 block radius of where they were clicked into independent mode. Activated by [Stationary state]
-Soldier: Any sword, boosts the attack of a golem by an amount dependent on the rank of the sword. Activated by [Any state]
-Packmule: a Chest, works as a mobile single chest!
-Archer: a Bow, protects you like a rapid fire turret. Activated by [Protection state] and [Stationary state]
Tier3 golems are almost the same as a Tier2 golem, but instead of using standard items, it uses a special item called a Corestone that can be crafted in the lifebench.
Detailed Corestone descriptions:
-Ice Stone: 3xSlime + 2xSnow Block, Makes a golem that fires freezing snowballs at enemies, allowing you to go in for the kill. Activated by [Work state]
-Healing stone: Cake + Gold Ingot + Milk, Makes a golem that emits a power that heals you. Activated by [Work state][Protection state]
-Hermes Stone: Golden boots + 4xFeathers, Makes a golem that speeds up all non-mobs (including you) to values previously unreachable. Good for very fast travel with your golem army across long stretches of land. Activated by [Work state]
-Miner's Fortune: 2xDiamond pickaxe+ 2x Gold pickaxe, Golem emits field that makes you dig and mine supah fast. Activated by [Work state]
-Wisdom Stone: Boockase+ Enchantment Table + 3x DiamondBlock, Creates a golem with the ability to drop high levels of experience. He drops some every 5 minutes, but drops much more on death. [Any state]
-Warp Stone: 3xRedstone + 1xEnder Pearl, Allows a golem to teleport you to other golems with this corestone. Also lets you set 'frequencies' by the block of their feet. Golems will only send you to other golems with a foot block that matches theirs. Activated by [Work State]
-The Force: Diamond chestplate + 2xGlass Block + 2xEnder Pearl, Creates a force field that pushes all non-golem mobs out of it (excluding you). Activated by [Work State]
-Zeus's Blessing: 4xIron Block, A golem that follows you and zaps all nearby hostiles if you are too low on health at the ultimate price. Activated by [Work State]
-Guardian Stone: A golem's strength is tripled and health is quintupled, but it is only obtainable from Shrines.
-Medusa Stone: 4xEndstone + Ender Eye: All hostile mobs within a radius are turned to stone. Has a small chance of turning mobs into a brainless stone minion that will serve its mother. Activated by [Work State]
-Aphrodite Stone: 2xGlowtree Logs + 2xDiamonds + 2xGold Apple: Attracts passive mobs and automatically makes them breed.Activated by [Work State] [Stationary state]
-Weightless Stone: 1xGold Block + 2xObsidian, Negates the gravitational effects of the planet within nearby space to make a moon like effect. Activated by [Work State] [Stationary state]
-Feather Stone: 2xFeather + 2xWool + 1x Raw Chicken, everyone within a radius has no fall damage and floats like a chicken Activated by [Work State]
-Farmer Stone: 2xBonemeal, 2xWheat, 1xGold ingot make crops grow much faster within a radius. Activated by [Work State] [Stationary state]
-Shield Stone: 4xBrick Block, 1xGhast Tear: when you press Z, the golem will instantly push up the earth beneath you to give you a moment of protection. [Any state]
Coreblocks serve as a way to give your golems further instruction and properties. By right clicking on the coreblock or a golem made with a coreblock will allow you to place that block inside of them. Right clicking with a bare hand will knock the item out to allow you to replace it.
Coreblocks placed in the world will also serve as an interesting way to show off your cool stuff.
Corestones are crafted in the LifeBench and all have a semi-shapeless recipe.
It is semi-shapeless because as long as the stone blocks are where they should be, the other 5 items can be placed anywhere in the grid.
Corestones themselves serve no purpose, and only certain item/block combinations create corestones.
But when placed inside a golem's coreblock, it will give them extra special abilities, bumping them into Tier3
Shrines are strange structures scattered throughout the world that hold ancient treasures left behind by golem conjurers of the distant past.
Inside lurks a powerful guardian golem that will protect the shrine at all costs, however if you manage to get past him, the you will find many valuable treasures as well as artifacts relating to the ancient demon of chaos
Porkthulhu, as he is better known, can be summoned when a golem made with a corestone containing Elder pork and having no arms is built on top of an Elder Pedestal.
Be warned, while porkthulhu may look harmless, he is simply waiting for you to let your guard down.
The day will flee in his presence and it will be locked in night until he leaves. Any strikes made unto him will only damage yourself. He is known to drive men mad, since you can never be sure where he is or when he will kill you, but one thing is known for sure. He will never leave you until you pay for disturbing his rest, so running is pointless.
Do not fall asleep in his presence. Letting your guard down for even a moment will seal your fate...
You have been warned.
