Today I began an ambitious project to Create a mod that puts all 151 of the original pokemon into minecraft. I finished a few today but I realized I may need some help considering this is a huge project. So I am using this post as two things, an announcement of this exciting project and also a call to you guys for support.

I'd like to say I don't know why so many people want to take control of their pokemon, but I do know why. It's a preference thing. The thing is, and maybe I shouldn't be speaking for others, but if the only way to use a pokemon will be to take direct control I will most likely lose interest in the mod. On the same coin, I'm sure there are people out there that would lose interest if the GUI is used.
I personally prefer the GUI. I could see it being just a list of four things, much like the games and that would be quite good all on it's own. However, I could also see a potential fifth option. The option to take control of the pokemon. I know that as far as coding is concerned, little idea like "just do both" are a lot more work than it may seem, but I feel like that may be the best course of action.
My suggestion is this: Whichever option wins, do it first. Let us have the update with it and give us some hands on time. When you have the time, look into implementing the other option. It's not easy to make everyone happy, but I believe that's the closet you'll possibly get to doing it, considering how close the vote is.
Something I wonder, though. . . when you take control of your pokemon, who takes control of you? Do you just stand there and watch? What if something comes to attack you? What if you're overwhelmed? Taking direct control of the pokemon seems like it could lead to a lot of "OH F**K, CREPPE---" there-goes-all-your-stuff sort of deaths.
I was also wondering about TMs. Do you have anything in mind of TMs? What about other items? Perhaps you could do like the game did and scatter some around the world. They could be like pumpkin patches, but instead of a whole bunch of pumpkins it would be just one item. I don't know about anyone else, but I hardly ever find pumpkin patches. . . that might also be a good way to scatter rare candies.
I'd also like to say you've done an awesome job with the mod. I love how modders make the game more fun than the people that make the game. Thanks!
Awesome mod dude! Keep it up! I have some suggestions for your mod!
- Add a pokemon healer like from a pokemon center. :biggrin.gif:
You can build a pokemon healer from something like iron or silver or even glass! I think this would be helpful because i'm not much of a wheat farmer. :/ And you could just put it in your house to restore your pokemons health!
- Pokemon Faint, don't die!
I wouldn't want a pokemon that i used a lot of rare candy to just die! :sad.gif: When it goes to 0 hp, just make it return to the pokeball. That way, we don't have to find the same species and get rare candy. Than you can just use a pokemon healer.
- The making of rare candy!
The rare candy should be made out of sugar from sugar cane! And/or paper for the wrapper. Dont have to use the idea, but try to make rare candy makeable! :wink.gif:
- Release option
There should be a release option in the pokedex but make it have the, " Are you sure you want to release (the pokemon)?"
- Attack mode?
Option on the pokedex to change its mode like peaceful or attack! idk lol...
- When you send your pokemon out, the pokeball should be thrown but back in your hands when the pokemon comes out.
If you throw your pokemon at something like a pig, it should attack it. (if its on attack mode)But I like the way when you press your pokeball on your hot keys to return the pokemon, it returns right away!
- Different pokemon have different abilities! :cool.gif:
If a pokemon can fly, you should be able to fly on it. If its fire type, it should act like a torch and light up darkness, if its water type, you should be able to ride on it like a boat! In the pokedex it should tell you its ability, and it can gain new ability and even multiple! Like charizard for instance! When its a charmander its only like a torch, but when it evolves it'll be like a torch and a flying mount! Endless possibilities!
- Weaken the pokemon?
I dont know if you added this already but if you weaken the pokemon, it should become easier to catch!
