Introducing The Emergency Services Mod --------------------
Hello, I have an idea for a new mod called The Emergency Services Mod. This mod will allow you to protect your house, and the empire you have created in your minecraft world. Adding Police Stations, Fire Stations, HazMat Units etc. this mod is perfect for those who have built a Minecraft base, or developed a living area in your world.
FIRE STATION -
This section will allow you to create Fire Stations through an instant structure block that is outfitted with both fire engines and and "Fire Crew" NPCs. Kind of like The Sims, if a fire is detected in an area defined by the player, the "Fire Crew" NPCs will get inside the fire truck and drive it to the building that is burning. When they arrive, they will attach a hose to a "Fire Hydrant" (placed by the player in certain areas) and walk inside the burning building and extinguish the fire. Then, they will drive back to the fire station awaiting the next fire.
POLICE STATION -
This section will be spawned with an instant structure block that will create a compound fit with a range of emergency vehicles and helicopters. An item the called the "Emergency Response Controller" which when right clicked pointing any where will open a GUI where the player gets to deploy certain services to a coordinate they enter. The GUI will have options such as what vehicles gets deployed and in what quantity. Those vehicles will include Police Cars, SWAT Cars, K-9 Units(dogs inside), Field Operation Cars, Police and Army helicopters etc. (more to be added)
(POLICE CARS WILL RESPOND TO FIRES AS WELL)
This section will once again be spawned by an instant structure block. This is included for mods such as IC, IC2 and ReactorCraft, in the event of a nuclear meltdown with one of these mods, the palyer (using the Emergency Response Controller) will deploy HAZMAT Teams to clean up the nuclear waste, and pick up the debris. They will also enforce and stop the player from going any where near the reactor for the next 5 minutes.
A list of emergency vehicles will be added in a future post.
I am open to comments, suggestions , and criticism. I am looking for coders, and people who can make textures.
Hi my name is nick431 I am a coder for minecraft I really liked your mod idea and was thinking the police could be npcs with the paramedics also being npcs. If you want to reach me add me on Skype my name is nickbb431 and email me your skype name and I will search for your name also
Nick431, welcome to the team, what would you like to do? We really need coders, you mentioned you where one. Last week, I started to learn Java, so I'll be able to code in the future. I have a question though, based on what you know about coding and modding, would it even be possible to allow the NPC to drive a vehicle to the actual burning building? Say if you built a small city with roads, how would the NPC know to drive on the road and not the grass to the building that is on fire, and how would you code it so that the NPCs can detect a fire? Thank you for the response, and I'm glad to have you helping with this.
Nick431, maybe, apart from instant structures and NPCs, we could add other itmes and blocks for personal prottection. Here are some of my ideas:
CCTV Cameras - This would not be the size of a block, but rather something smaller that looks like a CCTV camera, but has a rotating animation.
CCTV Monitor - After you place the CCTV Camera, you would right click it to open a GUI and set a frequency. Then anywhere in the world or other dimension, you would place the CCTV Monitor, right click it and open a GUI to set a frequency (the same as the CCTV Camera). You would then be able to see the feed from the CCTV Camera on the monitor in real time with out having to open the GUI.
CCTV Monitor Extender - Used to have a larger monitor size. You place it around or next to the CCTV Monitor.
CCTV Controller - Opens a small GUI at the bottom right corner of the screen with four arrows allowing you to enter the frequency of the CCTV Camera, and change its aim.
CCTV ComputerCraft Control Block - This block allows you to control the CCTV Cameras and see their feed through ComputerCraft.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Are you guys active? I am interested in using a concept like this, except make the police automatically go to pvp areas or areas with monsters? I am coding a medieval mod in 1.7.10 and want to have town guard npc's that do what I labeled above.
Edit: Custom NPC's API might be a good place to start
