Create some sort of rapidly flowing GUI. A player can press a keybind to bring up a list of words that is projected in front of their character in the real world (instead of locking them into a GUI). They use their mouse to hover over the first word, which then branches to the second word - they select the second word, and the tertiary words branch from it.
The GUI has to flow so spell casting is rapid and intuitive. Attach icons to the words. Automatically link words that work to each other.
This... sounds awesome! I have been waiting for a mod that would bring something like this to the table for a while now. To see that it may be within reach these days makes me totally ecstatic. Just a couple suggestions for the mod:
- To go with the conjuring/summon shape; bound tools! You could summon tools that could be affected by the words you use. In TES V: Skyrim, there is a sword that can send out a wave of magic after you swing it for a ranged attack. Something like this that you could create with words would be amazing!
- To go along with the improved enchanting idea; the ability to imbue your tools/armour with magic through words.
These are just ideas, but I hope you see use in them.
Integration with Computer Craft would be wonderful. I can just see my little turtles going around the world casting fire ball spells on everything! Maybe we could even have a spell that can activate red stone? That would be great!
Hey, is this still in developement? This mod sounds awesome, it's exactly the kind of mod I've been looking for for ages. Minegicka almost did it, but just wasn't that great, and the Inheritance Cycle magic is just so cool, so I'd love to see this work. I could help with ideas and testing and stuff if you need it as well, I don't really know enough programming or anything to help with that, so yeah.
For anyone still watching this thread/interested in the idea, I am now working on this mod again. I've scrapped a lot of the ideas I had at the time to keep up with changes in the game, but the basic concept is still the same.
If you would like to keep up with development, you can check out the Github repository for details. I will no longer be updating this thread.
This system that uses different words to create the spell kinda reminds me of how Magic Works on ALO and on the UW (VRs from Sword Art Online Anime/Novel)
I'm Looking forward to see this finished! I'm always searching for good magic mods, and this one looks just like what i want haha
