SquatchFever is my first ever minecraft mod. The idea for the mod came about yesterday at 3:20pm when I saw a video on youtube about Sasquatch in minecraft. I became very interested in it, and soon found out that there was no updated mod about the Sasquatch. So I, with absolutely no coding experience, decided to make the mod.
What Is Included So Far
In the current build of the mod, there are 4 mobs that spawn around the world:
The Sasquatch, a neutral mob that spawns in forests. It spawns in packs and attacks sheep.
The Skunk Ape, a passive swamp dweller that emits slime particles. I plan on making the textures more individual later. Done and done.
The Genoskwa, a total tank that spawns in the tiaga. It has the zombie AI, and I need to change that. Very aggressive.
The Yeti, basically the extreme hills Genoskwa. Super aggressive.
None of the bigfoots....bigfeet?....whatever....are animated yet. I don't know how to do animation, so if somebody would like to, or has a tutorial I could watch, I'd be down.
This picture below shows all of the items currently added into the mod
The four items on the left, obscured by the idiot player (me), are furs dropped by each type of Sasquatch. They can be used to craft the four masks on the right. The masks are only for display as of now, but I want to learn how to give them unique behaviors. The last two items are the Squatch Beef and the Squatch Steak. The Squatch Beef is a rare drop you can get from killing one of the mobs, and the Steak, as you'd expect, comes from cooking the Beef.
The Gugwe: Also known as a type 3, an aggressive bigfoot with a snout
The Yeren: China's bigfoot
Wood Boogers: Chimp-Like bigfoot that lives down South. Very mischievous.
Bigfoot Hunter: Villager who wanders the world and trades bigfoot items.
So, What Is Broken About This Mod
Here's the fun stuff. First of all, I need to fix the Genoskwa and the Yeti. They have the zombie AI, so they burn in the day and can infect villagers. They also spawn too rarely. Meanwhile, the Sasquatch spawns way too frequently. None of the models are animated, and all of them are too slow.
So I remodeled each of the mobs to look individualized, but animating them is still priority number 1.
I need help with that. I got some amazing tips from Bob Mowzie, who created Mowzies Mobs. He has been incredibly helpful in leading me in the right direction, but unfortunately its all too technical for me. I need to start from the basics, and I haven't been able to find any tutorials.
Also, I have a couple of ideas for new Bigfoot species:
-Fear Liath Moor: Much paler grey than the Genoskwa, lives in Extreme Hills. Going near it causes intense nausea and blindness, making it easy to fall off a cliff and die; this isn't helped by the creature's insane knockback.
-Grassman: Much slimmer and smaller than the typical bigfoot and with lighter hair, these spawn in small 'villages' made out of woven grass huts (A new block for the mod). They're also quite aggressive, and a lot faster than a normal Bigfoot.
-Teh-lma: A tiny reddish-brown yeti a little shorter than the player that can be found in rainforests, with very gibbon-like proportions (i.e. long arms, grasping feet). Very fast climber, tends to flee from players unless cornered.
-Dzu-teh: A huge, burly quadrupedal yeti with black-brown fur, these big bastards are aggressive, tenacious, and very, very dangerous. They don't take fall damage, allowing them to leap down cliffs to get at their prey, and their attacks inflict slowness to keep you from running.
-Lockridge Monster: Has large claws and a mouthful of razor-sharp teeth. Frequently attacks livestock, but its fast, hard-hitting attacks will make short work of you as well.
-Honey Island Swamp Monster: Stands a bit hunched over, but if it stood up straight, it would probably stand taller than the Genoskwa, but as it stands, it's about a head shorter. Muddy grey-brown fur with a hyena-like short mane down the neck and back, digitigrade legs like a dinosaur with alligator-like clawed feet, long arms reaching to the ground that sport talons like an eagle's, and a monstrous head like a hyena mixed with a baboon with exaggerated fangs and sharp teeth that stick out of the mouth like a crocodile's, and slit-pupiled yellow eyes with raised nostrils. It's extremely fast in the water and on land, capable of actually leaping forwards and charging on all fours, it doesn't have as much health as the Genoskwa, but it's got extremely dangerous attacks - its claws and its bite - that can easily kill an unarmored player in just two or three hits.
-Boggy Creek Monster: Shorter and squatter than the average Bigfoot, but taller than the skunk ape. Fairly aggressive, and uses the roar from The Legend of Boggy Creek as its sounds.
-Orang mawas: Red fur like an orangutan and a prominent underbite with tusks and snaggled sharpened teeth; spawns in jungles.
-Quickfoot: Ape-man creature from Britain with glowing green eyes and the ability to move at incredible speeds.
