The idea is pretty simple. Villagers can wear armor and swords, (But the arms are in the same place, they hold the weapon with the two hands) so they are not so defenseless against Zombies, also, they can use Bows, they dont need arrows. (Just like skeletons, and their arrows can't be picked up)
They can acess chests, example. if there is an Armor in a chest, they will find the chest and get the armor.
Villagers can spawn using Armor and weapons. There is a chance that they will drop a random piece upon death. (Thats why i want that they use only up to Iron tools, no free and easy Diamonds)
If possible, i want that all the Zombies are spawned with the ability to pick up items, and that they could behave like Skeletons when they get a Bow
All the Villagers can pick up items from the ground.
The villagers will attack the player if they are attacked, just like Zombie Pigmen (They attack in group) they can damage with bare hands as well!
I would love support for Balkon's Weapon Mod, i think it would fit very well to see a Villager using a Medieval Weapon!
So? Anyone up to some coding? As you see, no new items or such, that means no ID Conflict! No new textures needed as well, just code. Also, it must be Forge Compatible for sure, the mod name could be Upgraded Villagers!
If you have an idea, post it here as well, and i can put it in the main post! Thanks in Advance!
Villagers should only put the armor and swords on at night or if a villager gets killed, I think it would ruin the aesthetic of the village with a bunch of squidward centurions running about.
Or you could just have a seperate class of villager that wields weapons and wears armor (Possibly with a hierarchial structure with iron weapons/armor being the highest and leather armor and wooden weapons for the lowest. It would also be cool if there were separate buildings for the centurion villagers themselves.
