So I've read over all of the Ideas you guys have submitted and while they are all fairly interesting concepts, I don't think I will be attempting any of them. I actually had a pretty cool idea of a game that mixes elements of Minecraft and the concepts of Notch's unfinished 0x10C. I think I will put most of my energy towards that project instead. I'm planning on making it a Open Source and Free-to-play game if I can get anywhere in the project.

Jun 20, 2014Hello Minecraft Forums,Posted in: Requests / Ideas For Mods
After a period of absents from the modding community I would like to get back into mod making.
How ever I want to go about this diffrently than I have in the past. Instead of just doing what I like, I would like to get suggestions from the comminuty on what I should make. So here are a few of the things ive done that might be worth restarting, and some new Ideas. Feel free to suggest your own, I would love to hear them.
My Current Ideas
Shur'tual (Based on Eragon Books)
Grid Craft (Based on Tron movies and TV Show)
Infamous SuperPower Mod(Based on the Sony games)
Dragon's Reach (Some sort of Dragon Based Skylands)
Unamed 80's Glowing Syfy Realm (inspired by Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon)
My problem with 4/5 those ideas is that they are based on something else. I would really much rather start with a totaly new idea. Also as you can tell im intrested in doing larger mods.
Please let me know what you think!!!
Dec 6, 2013Iamshortman posted a message on ModJam 3 - The 96 hour creation competition FINALLY Announced!Ive kinda been waiting for the next mod jam for a while. Not great timing as it falls into the same time as finals for me. But what why not I'm in.Posted in: Mods Discussion
Quick clarification.... I assume nothing(besides ideas) can be made before hand? No Models or Textures? I just want to rule out a few ideas that would take too much time to model and animate.

Well, at least that is some good news. So, just Short and Tak?
Pretty Much, We both are in collage and don't have a lot of time. Plus we have some side projects(unrelated to minecraft) in planning stage that we both have more interest in. Don't get me wrong we love you guys and are thankful for you support but we think its best for us to move on to new things.
Oct 13, 2013Iamshortman posted a message on [WIP] [1.5.2] [SMP] [FORGE]The Shur'tugal Mod- Mod Discontinued, Source Code ReleasedSo I have to apologize. Yesterday i woke up feeling absolutely terrible (and had a fever). My entire body was sore and i spent the whole day laying on my couch sleeping. So as you can imagine nothing got done on Shurtugal(at least from me). I will try to work on it some time today but i do have some school work that needs to get done first. I apologize for the update taking so long but my life has been crazy and finding time (and motivation) has been pretty hard with how much time ive been working. My internship is set to end in a few weeks and after it is over i will try to set it up such that i work on shurtugal for at least an hour a day.Posted in: WIP Mods

From the perspective of someone who's only seen the movie I don't see any problem with keeping the name Shur'tugal.
Was that name used in the books or something? I don't remember it from the movie?
Shur'tugal is "Dragon Rider" in the Ancient Language which is the language of magic in the books, So Shur'tugal is pretty tied to Eragon.

[size=medium][/size]Brilliant.[size=medium] I'm sure many people are so thankful that their dragons are safe when they are off-line. Me personally, as long as they can defend themselves I wouldn't care. It would just require players to be cleaver about dragon parking. Though I plan on using (the bukkit plugin) Grief [/size]Prevention[size=medium] to protect give players a form of land, but it also protects any non-hostile mobs.[/size]
Your right, standard Forge doesn't have permission's built in, but MCPC+ is a Forge/Bukkit hybrid (made by one of Mo'Creature's developers), so it has permission support. I've been using it and imagine it is as close as we have to what the Pluggin API will be like.
Im not sure if grief prevention would protect your dragons, working between a bukkit plugin and mod is not a straight forward thing. Plus on basic forge servers bukkit plugins would not work so thats why i programed that peice. More so I don't claim support for MCPC+, While I could work perfectly fine I have not at this point tested with it. However I may do some testing on it when I can get a vanilla version that is stable. In any case I definitely will take into account a lot of things you brought up when starting the redesign of the code(should happen after next release).

This mod will never become a full conversion and it will always have support for just about any mod, with the exception of mods that change base classes, because i can not ensure that there changes don't brake my stuff(That being said it could work perfectly).
You are so right, mods are not build with public servers in mind. It wasn't even until minecraft 1.3 that it was required some form of muiltiplayer support, and a large portion of the mods are only SMP because it has to be. And a side affect of this is that a lot of the mods don't even take into account the possibility of it running on a server. I have at least tried to make this mod so that it would work better on servers, so when a player goes offline his dragon goes with him to keep down random killing of his dragon when hes gone, Also to keep from having 40 dragons sitting around wasting server power while there riders are offline. While this is a great idea it still needs work because its brought a ton of bugs. Correct me if im wrong but Forge doesn't have a Permission systems(built in) like bukkit, and not many people are that interested in creating one for a handful of Servers that might run the mod. Ill write more later but i have to go to class right now.

I have been following this and the DragonMount mod hoping that I can incorporate it into my server. I would have ended up disabling most of the features/items save for the dragons to fit my server's theme, so I'm fine with dropping the theme. This never seemed to be an adventure mod like the Aether, it has always seemed a utility mod with flavor. I can personally do without that flavor, but I can understand how some people feel so strongly about it pulling the line it has toed so far.
At this point in the mod I agree with you, we really are only a utility. However the plan has always been to make this something that is more of an adventure, to make Dragons far more then just a tool but a key part of how the game plays.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like your looking for a good mount system(utility mod) for you server id definitely say that Dragon Mounts is what your looking for. Although its lacking My custom saving and loading system for dragons that allow dragons to be despawn and respawn at will(which in my opinion is pretty needed for a server of any larger size), Dragon Mounts is far less intrusive into minecraft feel and look then this mod has planned to be. while we have not gotten too that state we have never intend or wanted to just be a utility, Thats Dragon Mounts goal(or so it seems). We are just trying to take that (we started from dragon mounts code) and make some sort of an Adventure from it. But Thats just ideas at the moment. I am thankful for you option, it is nice to hear different points of view.

So for me, if anything, the Eragon title was a distraction. As long as it keeps its current game elements I have no problem with dropping Eragon from the title. I do however like (kind of) the fact that your dragon's life is tied to your own. Forces players to be more careful and really try to not die.
We will keep the fact that the dragon is tied to you. Ive Spent way to much time working on it to remove it.. lol. I'm mostly joking on the last part, it is a nice feature and i plan on keeping it if we move away from it.

I KNOW! I actually don't like 64x64 or anything really over 16x16 because it loses that Minecraft fell and touch. I like the simplicity of things. By the way, will mobs be able to be despawned if I use the command /gamerule do mobSpawning false?
Im fine with textures over 16x16 as long as the color scheme still fits with minecraft, Sphax Purebdcraft texture pack is a good example of larger textures that doesn't loose touch with the look and feel of MC(in my opinion). But back to the Mod at hand, I will be releasing a resource pack that will contain the old egg, dragon, and brick textures for those who like the old ones better, this pack might contain more vanilla looking dragon armor if I can get the time to redo them. As far as your question goes I have no idea what happens when you change that gamerule, I assume it just stops the spawn and does nothing to any creature already in the world.
P.S. I will probably get the resource pack out with the next release.
Oct 7, 2013Posted in: WIP ModsQuote from TaklokSo, we use this word feathery a lot. But I honestly don't get how it looks feathery. It looks more leathery like a dragon's wing should to me, not feathery. But that's just my perspective.Quote from CommanderBacon7Same for me. More leathery than feathery for me.
Truthfully i am a much bigger fan of the original textures then the newer ones. the original fit much better with minecraft look and feel

Didn't know dragons sunk, in the books saphira swims a few times so maybe that will be added?
Quote from WarDog249
That's what I was thinking. Maybe it will be added later on. Actually, that's how my first dragon died.
Quote from Luke_SkyOtter
What a sad way to lose a dragon....
Ill try to add AI so they don't Sink at some point. it was not on purpose but Ive veen so focused on getting everything else right that i forgot about stuff like that,

No no you can inform him of that since it deals with the future aqusition, maybe. Anyways we use dropbox
At some point we will be moving to github, when the mod moved to open source. The exact time and way it will become open source has yet to be determined. It has always been the plan for this mod but we have not gotten to a point where I feel its right(aka our code still looks awful and needs much cleaning) and it is not finished enough yet either.
