I've wanted to add hobbit doors, but they would end up trapping the hobbits inside or outside their holes because only standard wooden doors can be opened by mobs. Changing this would require editing base classes, which is a very bad thing to do. I'll see though, I may be able to do something, hobbit doors would certainly be a great thing to add.
It should be compatible with all mods as long as 1) those mods are compatible with Forge and 2) any ID conflicts are resolved.
The good/evil thing isn't so much of a choice that you need to make, it's how you play the mod. You could become almost fully evil and then redeem yourself to the good side by doing good things. So because I want the mod to be very free and changeable, I probably won't be including something where you can choose your race.
However: you will be able to get reputation with hobbits, elves, men, etc. and get to know them, trade with them, do quests for them and things like that. I like that idea. And there's nothing stopping you from living in a hobbit hole if you want! Whether or not you leave the hobbits there is up to you...
Thanks for the feedback and ideas, and I hope you enjoy the mod, whenever it gets released. Depending on whether we decide to release a public beta before the mod is complete, that may be quite soon.
do we need forge for this mod? and i would love to get reputations from hobbits seeing as i like hobbits and the good/evil this, i thought it was something you like choose at the beginning XD anyway, thanks, if theres anything you need help with apart from coding (i cant code) which i doubt cause thats about i guess.... but maybe textureing? cause id be glad to help in any way i can :3
This looks like such an awesome mod :3 do you think you could add hobbit doors? like doors that and the size of a double door and open as one and the texture is like a round door and around it is another texture so it looks like a round door? cause that would be awesome :3 also is it compatible with:
mine little pony
and also, do you think you could add a thing where you choose if your a hobbit, dwarf, elf, wizard, etc. as well as choosing if your good or evil? cause it would be fun to be a hobbit and live in a hobbit hole also it would be cool, if you where like a say... hobbit, the hobbits would know you or something like that? (if it where compatible with mine little pony, choosing which race wouldn't affect your player, just how NPCs react to you) just some random ideas :3
p.s ive been looking like a mod for this ever since i went and saw "The Hobbit" and on one server i play on, i made a hobbit hole
p.s.s the mod looks so fun and i cant wait till i can download it
Why would you want to be flying about as a pony in middle-earth, THAT WOULD BE CRA-ZY!
Signed up just to comment on this topic and subscribe to it. I am a huge LOTR fan and enjoy building variations of minas tirith. This mod is just exciting. I've got nothing to suggest but that for you to incorporate some of the objects from the movies/books in as well. The One Ring (Invisibility and maybe a negative effect as well plus it could darken your sight), Sting (Already suggested), the light that the Lady of the Forest gives Frodo, Fireworks from Gandalf.. etc.
Also, something I haven't really seen done yet is a boss that isn't generated randomly. I'm sure this is due to how the map is generated but having the big spider in a cave around mordor and maybe even the balrog in the moria caverns.
Most of all, do not give up! I used to be a coder when I was in high school. Not anything useful here, but I do know how easily life can stop us short. Please keep this thing going!
Thanks for all you are doing with this and if you ever need someone with little to no skills, let me know.
Will you PLEASE make a download link I NEED TO PLAY IT, IT LOOKS LIKE THE COOLEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I BET I WILL LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THIS WILL BE REVOLUTIONARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am SO hoping this mod comes out for FORGE and become SMP compatability. This mod would be so epic with friends going on the quest to slaughter the evil eye instead of having make-believe NPC players substituting for the members of the Fellowship of the Ring. OMG i can't ... stop.... NO.... ughk... NERGADSM!!!
