Griffone's Mod Projects in Mods Posted July 12, 2013 Griffone's Mod Projects Hello there, my nickname is Griffone, I'm 17 years old and I've started working on some mods for minecraft. I've started doing it to practice programming. I've got quite a bit of help from minecraft forge tutorials and made some progress already and I have a lot of plans for the future, but so far there is a lo-ong way ahead. Here are my projects so far: BuildingBlocks Yeah, the name is generic, but I had to start somewhere. The mod adds several new blocks to the game, like walls, stairs, colored beds, 4 different doors, trap doors and pressure plates from all types of wood. (Textures by Yorla). I have an interesting framed glass block, which is a smart block, that will add a lot of new design possibilities, I'm putting some finishing touches on it. Oh yeah, it also adds world generated salt, which is intended as a new decoration block and as a crafting component for lamps. Newly added blocks in BuildingBlocks Plants In plants I plan to add some new life to minecraft, that will be used in so-far planned archipelagos biome (which is another mod idea I have). For now there are pine tree and flax, with linen fabric blocks, which are decorative blocks like wool. Linen fabric and framed glass panels, showing an example structure you can make with new mods Transportation So far I mostly experiment with entities in Transportation, trying out different ideas, but the plan is to make a new wind system, that will affect the ships and balloons, which will be new transportation devices. I plan to have ships, controlled by one or several players with others assisting thim. Current vessel is ok, but I want to make sea exploration more fun and interesting. There are plans for balanced modular ship system, which will give space for pvp naval combat. Balloons are planned as a training exercise before making ships and also little-controlled method of flight, that won't break the balance of the game. I'm using Techne as a modelling tool for now, but I want triangular sails on ships, so if you have any advice or ideas, I will gladly read them. After ships are implemented I'm planning to make a new biome mod (archipelagos) which will be the playground for ships. Hrenli helps me out with code (he's a professional programmer) and Yorla helps me with art (she's an artist), so big thanks and credits to them. I didn't upload anything yet, because the mod so far is very work in progress, but if you want, just tell me, I'll make a download link as fast as I'll be able to. Please reply if you have any ideas, objections, critics or just want to give me a heads up! Thank you for your time!
