This mod makes exploration exciting again by adding 16 statues for you to discover, randomly generated to produce thousands of unique results, each of which affects the world around it in its own individual way. Discover dangerous statues, helpful statues, and just plain weird ones! MIX & MATCH pieces to create NEW EFFECTS!
The Statues (a guide):
Each statue is comprised of three parts: the head, the torso, and the feet. When combined, these parts work in tandem to produce the unique effect of that statue, by forming a sort of 'sentence' that the player can modify by switching out parts. A new piece often means a new effect, so experiment with all the possible combinations and remember the names of the ones you like most!
1. Hephaestus- Armorer to the Gods and Patron of Metallurgy!
1. Install Forge.
2. Delete META INF folder.
3. Place Household Gods zip file in Minecraft's /mods folder.
-Made range in which statue-spawned lightning may be heard customizable.
-Config option for lightning now exists! Set "Proximity Lightning" to turn off lightning sound unless you are within 16 blocks of the statue. Lightning remains otherwise visible.
-Fixed 'Asc' auras ceasing to work upon exiting a world until the statue head is removed and reattached. -Asc-headed statues should now always offer an area buff to creatures (determined by the feet) of a type determined by the torso. Hint: you probably want 'ius'.
-Gold blocks placed beneath the feet of a statue will prevent it from attempting to affect the world around it. Aura statues excluded.
-Spawn amount is now up to AND including the number in the config file.
-Statue pieces now save orientation when leaving a chunk or exiting the game.
-Definitely SMP compatible this time. I hope.
-Self-duplicating statues now stop when they find a certain number of other statues in a large area. They will attempt to teleport either the offending statues or themselves until they find space to duplicate.
-Added config-controlled limit for maximum number of statues before duplication ceases.
-Added config-controlled limit for maximum number of items a statue can have spawned at one time.
-'Be' will now attack players for a percentage of max life, allowing 2-3 hits before player is killed.
-'Be' attack type changed from 'magic' to 'physical,' which should allow armor to mitigate further damage (untested).
-Certain variants of 'Heph' may now enchant weapons and armor in player/monster inventory.
-'Asc' heavily buffed. Now it creates an aura (like the beacon!), determined by the torso, and affecting creatures, determined by the feet.
-Added "Lightning Resist" potion effect for 'Asc' (potion not brewable).
-Added "Thorns" potion effect for 'Asc' (potion not brewable).
-Added "Featherfall" potion effect for 'Asc' (potion not brewable).
-Fixed Demeter typo. Pieces should be 'De' 'me' 'ter'.
- Household Gods should now work in SMP for Forge 1.4.7-188.8.131.527
- Household Gods now native to Forge!
- Added config file.
- Statues may now spawn in caves/underground areas.
- Fixed bug where maximum number of statues always spawned at valid locations.
- Fixed 'Tze' crashing when no players were within range.
-Fixed ‘Gozer’ catching entity in infinite teleportation loop.
- ‘aes’ and ‘t’ should now behave as defined in the guide.
- ‘tus’ now not the only piece a statue may drop.
- statues may now: teleport other statues, clone themselves, or create new statues.
- Fixed crash caused when “Heph” head interacts with creatures.
- Changed “zal” torso so Quetzalcoatl no longer drops nether wart only.
- Fire in “meth” torso’s hand should now rotate properly with torso.
-Currently no art for new potion effects. Will resolve in future.
Buff weak pieces and pieces not working as intended.
Mod awareness: check for the blocks, creatures, or items of other installed mods, and have the relevant statue affect them for further excitement!

And This is Where You Come in!
Can you texture better than me, particularly that awful ?????! Show me what you've made and I'll add support for it in the mod!
Got any ideas for the next 8 statues or one of the current ones? Let's talk!
Interested in making a banner? Knock yourself out!
Any mods you'd like to see the statues affect? Name names!
Look At Banner, Michael!
Jyric has kindly provided a way of showing support for the mod! Thanks, Jyric!
To get the BBcode to work just remove the dashes before img and url.

THis is a very interesting mod
I love mythology so this is cool to see. Have not tried it out yet but I will when I have the time.
For the 8 new statues, maybe a statue based on Cerberus, to protect a certain area/ or nether portal from mobs entering it? And maybe something to help locate dungeons/nether fortresses? And a statue that provides maps, possibly based on Theseus? Also one of King Midas, perhaps, to change a nearby droped item into a gold nugget/bar?
I think that this is a really cool mod and I am definitely going to be playing with it a bit. As for some ideas for more statues, I'll pitch some patron gods of mine. Cernnunos, Hekate, Circe, IDK exactly what you could do with them, but exploring their lore like you've done with these current statues could make for some really cool creations I think.
@ MineCrates: Thanks! And I hope you're right!
@ Sorcero: I've never heard of Cernnunos before, but some cursory research suggests he'd be interesting. An antlered god would be pretty appealing, visually.
@ sirrockyqo: Yeah, a Notch/Herobrine thing would be the logical addition. I've also discovered recently that putting the in-game heads (skeleton, zombie, pig, etc.) on the shoulders of a statue looks pretty hilarious. I may have to do something about that...
@ TCTNGamiz: Thanks so much for the review! Awesome!
@ Golubvik and SbGamer: Thanks!
@ MrWilliamo: Send me a link when you've made it!
@ creepusjavus1234: sort of like the Beacon? I haven't looked into how that works yet, but proximity buffs and debuffs would be neat. And there are totally statue variations that spawn hostile mobs. I think Ju-nu-wulf is one of them.
