Hello! I am ReverantKitty, and I am working on a new mod that adds a lot of new and amazing features to Minecraft. If I forget anything, please let me know as this is the very first mod that I have ever posted online.
This mod aims to add lots of medieval things to Minecraft in order to enhance battles. (I hope) There will be epic battles between two players! Imagine: A hungry lord wants a castle, but the other denies! A fight is inevitable as the horns blow! The cavalry ride forth! Catapults launch high-flying projectiles into the air, smashing down the walls! But the king's castle forces are too much for the smaller attacking force. But meanwhile, the hired assault assassins target the walls and blow them open. Soon, barbarians enter the fortress! With all of these enemies the king must flee and rebuild these armies!
There are a lot of features currently in BattleCraft and a lot that I would like to add.
Soldiers and barbarians that you can give some basic commands (halt/ready) right now but I will add more organization things like grouping of units. They can fight monsters for you right now.
Soldier and barbarian captains who you can hire units from (with a GUI!)
Blacksmiths that don't really do much but have a GUI anyways
A custom rendered hat! Yay!
Traders that don't really do much at all, but they have hats
Working portcullises! No more huge, ungainly redstone contraptions vulnerable to a single TNT blast!
NPCs have various skins, barbarians have mohawks, and captains have capes. All NPCs have their own names and can talk to you.
Unit GUI that lets you control equipment and give supplies
Units get more experience as they fight and level up to get health and combat bonuses
Full multiplayer support (all existing multiplayer-related bugs will be fixed)
Assassins who you can tell to blow things up (almost done)
Tell NPCs to follow you, but they will only do so if you are their friend
Become friends or enemies with an NPC
Units will eat food and use up supplies
You need to pay your units
Here are the planned features that I have in mind:
Grouping the units, e.g. press 1 to select infantry or press 2 to select cavalry, then press o to start following or i to get ready.
Morale among your troops. It's affected by food and other things that you give them, and can buff/debuff them based on the current level.
Cooks, who can give food to your troops.
A new dimension
Scouts - tell them where to scout to and they'll report things nearby
Alliance/enemy system (to enable unit vs unit battles)
Trading GUI that most trading NPCs use
This mod is in very early development, so don't expect that all of that is coming tomorrow! I've still got a lot to do, but it's going to be really fun once I finish this mod! Also, if you have a cool idea, please comment to let me know!
Sorry, but there's not enough in the mod yet that you would want to see anything. But I will have them out, soon (ish)!
