Hello all,I want to make a Star Trek Mod where you can build ships and do other Star Trek - like things. I want to make the mod as a community project, so everyone can give me code and he/she will also be in the credits. I will put everything together and release it. Of course, I will also code some stuff.
To be clear:
Everything that will be implemented will be from TOS, not TNG or the newer films or something similiar!
Here's a list of what you can help me with (this list will be updated(so something that is done will be removed etc.)):
Ship system and Planet system (basically Movecraft for Minecraft Forge) (is being coded by IPPIP)
-if you fly your ship high enough, you and your ship will be teleported to space
-space is made of mini-planets (that are cubes, of course) (in code, it's a new dimension)
-if you get near enough to a planet, you and your ship will be teleported to it (in code, it's a new dimension)
Cannon system (blocks wich shoot entitys like a phaser bolt)
I want ships, that you can build yourself out of almost any block, and then fly away with them. And I saw Movecraft, and I thought, something like that, that would be the right thing. The movement is blocky, what allows you to activate dispensers while flying, for example. And with own cannon blocks, like phasers and photon torpedoes, it would be even better. The signs would be replaced with new blocks, and of course there would be stuff like jackets and hand phasers. And starting a new world with the mod should work like this:
When you join your new world, you already have a jacket like Captain Kirk has. After you built your ship (you can also repair shipwrecks that generated randomly in the world), you will fly up to, let's say, 250 blocks, and if you touch this height, 250, with the top block(s) of your ship, your ship and you will be taken to the space dimension, where suns, asteroids, and some planets will generate. The planets will always be on the same position in space, so they're easy to find. If your ship gets near a planet, it will again be taken with you to a new dimension, to the planet. There you can land and start living there. If you leave a planet and come to space, you and your ship will spawn next to the planet you left.
Robbi will you update the car mod? And the Star trek mod are you going to make it so you can make the ship out of block walk around in it and use a certain block to drive it. Or are you going to use models? It would be cool if you use the block thing and had to use a connector block in side the ship like a frame and build around all the block connected to the ships connector blocks and blocks touching those block are connected. When you drive it become one big entity and when you land/ stop driving you can walk around in it. or some how use an auto pilot thing so you can walk around the in side when it is driving. When you land you are going to land on a landing pad that will not connect to the ship. So the telapad the beam you to the land are like elevators that telaport you down. when you want to get back up near the landing pad can be another telapad and you choose which one in the dimension to go to. So So on the planet a base can randomly spawn around the world that has the telapads and landing pad. The ships telapad is diffrent and can only telaport you down not across the map to other telapads. only the ones in the base can do that. These are ideas for the star trek mod. I hope you can find away to use them. And another thing on your car mod if you update it can you add a few more cars. I could help model some new cars if you want.
So the ship system a GUI on the block that you can drive with so like you can choose Auto pilot then the place you would like to go if you have been there before or manual so you can use arrow keys or something like that? You should ask the guy who made archimedes ships to help with that. He can help when it comes to and entity and you drive it.
Hey I was wondering what my first model should be because you haven't told me yet I've started on a door for inside the ship(because were basing this of tos I felt like they were kind of needed) and i can do textures now.

Maybe i could follow my cousin rex7567's footsteps in being a ships programmer. Even though i do not know much about programming,i could learn from rex:) But he will only start programming two weeks later as he has a very important national exam.
