I have some amazing ideas for the mod. I hope you will like them and possibly implement them in future updates. (1.) film instead of dye. I think that instead of having the three dyes, we should have different types of films. They wouldn't need to be developed and the picture would appear in the inventory has usual but it would be easier to determine how the color in the photo is balanced.(ex. Black and white film, color film, red scale film, green scale film etc.) (2.) no batteries. I think batteries are a little annoying to craft and charge so why don't we just get rid of them and make the cameras mechanical like they used to be in the old days. (4.) smp please. But who knows with the mod API you may not need to do that. If you like the ideas comment on the page or in my account.
To let you know about Multiplayer and 1.3-Update and all that stuff:
Update to 1.3 will need to include a multiplayer version anyways since 1.3 is actually always multiplayer (= always server). Problem is: I am not sure how this is going to turn out. First I need to wait for MCP to update (One of the guys of them is working on it right now on livestream). Then I still need to wait for Minecraft Forge to update (yes, next update will probably require Minecraft Forge. Not sure about that though.). Anyhow: It's still much work to do until the multiplayer version. I will start to work on the great ideas all of you suggested right when I ported the mod as it is right now to 1.3 (=multiplayer).
Thanks for all your continuing support!
WOW i dident realize my one sugestion would get that much attention. Any way i thought of another idea having pictures that would show whats going on in the photo aka if a sheep walked in to were the picture was and you were looking at the picture you would see the sheep.
I also thought of somthing for my first sugestion instead of snaping to the place with the lag that comes with regular teleportinng usualy it would be constantly there you would snap to it it would be like if you had a hole in the wall that lead you to that place. I would honestly be happy with just regular teleportation though. i realise both my sugestions would be very hard and thats why i wouldent mind if if it was just basic pic teleing.
Wow. So much discussion
What I think about the teleportation:
It's a good idea, but I will implement it a bit different I think:
When you want to make a "teleportation photo" you just use a normal camera but you also need to put in an enderpearl. It will be consumed if you take a photo. Then once you placed the photo on the wall (or hold it in your hand) you can right click on/with it and it will show up a screen where you can:
See the photo, the name of the photographer, the coordinates the photo was taken at
If it's a teleportation photo (created with an enderpearl in the camera), you can teleport there by clicking a button
if you are the owner, you can edit the name of the photo
Maybe I'll add in a "Add co-owner" function to let others edit the photo-name.
Also: the whole system how the camera works will be modified: It will use film instead of ink and that film would need to be processed in a dark room (otherwise the photos on it are lost). Not sure about that process though, I am not a photographer
i like the see through thing but i think there should be a option in the visuals section to turnit off for people like me who for some reason always get a crach when they walk to a moving graphic thats put in by a mod
Looks like a great mod, I might try it.
Can there also be filters? (kinda like instagram)
monsieur, instagram has nothing to do with different types of filters. well, that's digital editing. not taking actual pictures with a physical filter on the lens itself. but it is a good idea, (green filters to bring out the light, i believe)
I think the in should be Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta, instead of Red, Green and Blue, because red, green and blue are primary colors of light, not when printing things.
Depends on the type of camera the one in the mod is suppose to be. For digital cameras that is completely accurate due to the need for a printer, but for older non-digital cameras, colors are brought out through use of chemical baths in a dark room. Either way, the colors chosen act like filters to only allow certain colors of light through to the film/CCD. If you wanted to get technical, a printer should be added which would accept those colors, which would then print the pictures stored on the camera. I suggest the printer constantly jam and make horrifying sounds.
