At first look these characters only look like a few dyed armor with skulls, but they are more then that.
you may notice the button beside them, that allows you to select them. clicking this button removes all of your inventory and potion effects, replacing them with that characters attributes. I may also mention that these characters come with custom attacks as well, Falcon punch and fire ball, both of these still need work.
Don't like the Default character settings? do you prefer your own characters? well I have just the thing for you, THE COMMAND CENTER, at the command center you can change and edit the out come of the characters, appearance and you can change there powers, you can make your own character basically. its also been made simple of what signs you can change and cannot change, It also has signs that tell you what commands do what.
When I release the map for download it will come with a resource pack based mainly around sound. I'm was able to replace the background music of minecraft with 8bit versions of smash bros music (none belong to me). Not only is there changed music, there is also changed hit sounds as well, here are 2 examples of those.
I might be able to help you, I know a decent amount about redstone and command blocks, if not I could always test it out before you add the download link... I probably know least about the scoreboard command but I still know how to use it...
well where I am currently I can barely join any server, any server I join it is too lagy not my fps but the server lag is bad because of my current location I could try but I understand... I'd rather not say where I am but right now I am in Asia (no I am not Asian)
