This mod will add a variety of robots ranging from scouts to fighters and will allow you to control them all with one controller. This contoller allows the player to see what the robot sees and control it using the W,A,S and D keys. The controller also comes with a few (incomplete) commands shown on the buttons to the left. This is the first mod I've published and it has been great making it. I am open to suggestions on what to make next so any ideas will be carefully considered.

To install all you need to do is copy the zip file to your .minecraft/mods folder. Then simply start minecraft.
At the moment the recipes aren't fully implemented. So I would recommend using creative. The icon for the items will look like leather helmets as I haven't done the textures yet. To put a robot down just right click while you are holding it. The controller has multiple broadcast frequencies and it can control many robots with one controller. To give the robot a frequency just right click it while it is on the ground and use the arrow buttons and press the "Set recieve frequency" button. This will increase and decrease the frequency. Now if you right click with the controller you will get a similar interface. Matching this frequency to the robot's and pressing the "set broadcast frequency" button will set it's frequency and allow control of the robot. It will also display the robot's camera view.
A great robot for exploring the darkest caves. This robot comes equipped with a camera and a light. Right clicking while holding the robot will drop it and right clicking the dropped robot allows you to change the robot's frequency. Can be controlled with the controller.
A new addition to the explorer's arsenal. This little device can be thrown wherever you need it. it has no movement capabilities other than rotation but it is a great exploration device. This robot comes equipped with a camera and light. To assign this robot a control frequency go into sneak(crouch) and press the right mouse button while holding the robot. This will allow you to change the robot's frequency like any other robot. When you are finished setting the frequency simply throw the camera where you need it. Can be controlled with the controller.
To-Do: [s]-make textures for the item icons[/s] -make more robots [s]-crafting recipes[/s] -custom sounds for robots as they currently sound like chickens
