multi block was exactly my idea :p
like 3x3x3 or something, connected by some sort of pipes and with a gui similiar to the crop matron
Are you still on this thing?
Because if so, you mayb interested in combing your idea with mine ( Suggestion: War Robots/ -Machines of different tiers and animal-cross-breeding ; the war robot thing of course).
If you would tele care of the texting 'n' stuff (i'm not good at this...), then i'll take care of modeling and texturing.
Tough, let me tell you a secret. You must cross the Saara desert, travel trough the African swamps and swim trough the indian ocean. Then you must climb the Himalayas and on the very top, you will find a hidden valley. Look for the temple by the river, and the men inside will lead you to the holy land of Google.
My word. Where to start?
1. It's called Sahara
2. Where are these swamps supposed to be?
3. There is no river on top of the Himalaya
4. Who the hell you think I asked first? Bing?
Thanks for your oh so helpful comment.
Like said in the past "Learn with the masters, and surpass them". If you do this, fine, i would love it! But dont copy code or find pre-made code online. Google Tutorials, start with small scripts and grow. That's how big moders like Big Al, Elo, SpaceToad and many others started, from below.
well, do you know any tutorials for industrial craft addons then? Or is it just like any other forge mod? Maybe I can find some time to figure things out...
As I said I have no idea about scripting these things... So if this isn't gonna get into industrial craft itself I might be interested in doing an addon myself and maybe use some pre made codes n stuff. Cause theres no dishonor for me to ask somebody for help who is already experienced in it...
Nah. of course I intended to ask about using them -_-
Other mods (like Thaumcraft) use minions to help you/ fight for you without causing lag or framerate dropage... Maybe we could use the codes from one of these mods, remodel them, retexture them, change the recipies and parts of the AI?
So maybe robots could be added, but for now on only "civil", working robots and maybe later on in Industrium Conflict... or just in an addon... I would do it, but I have litterally no idea how the coding works...
Although Industrial craft has many things to offer, it doesnt take too long to experience most of it. So I came up with the idea of something that is getting better the more of it you have: War-Robots/ -Machines!
They could have different tiers reaching from easy-to-build wooden ones to mega-expensive quantum droids. They should have a bit weaponry with them, so you can combine melee and shooting infantry or something (maybe even support for weapon mods like balcons and sdk's...), as well as a bit of AI that allows them to get easy tasks to guard/ wander around/ stay in groups/ mayybe even attack another player and his robots by inserting the full in game name of him... As I have no idea how hard it would be to code these things, and how well they would fit in the mod, this might be just an idea for a major addon...
The second idea would be crossbreeding between mobs.
They could be trapped in some glass tanks and you extract genoms of them (just like seed packages) that you can analyze and breed. They could have various stats - like the plants - like easyer to slaughter, more droppage, faster egg production...
You get the initial DNA sequence by hitting a mob with a DNA sampler of some sorts, which you then put in the tanks, so that the mobs grow. By putting three connected tanks next to each other, you have the chance to get a better/ completely new DNA (again just like the plants...)
As an input you would need of course food for them (a possible use of the canning machine), antibiotics, and something like a water filter (a small, cheap device that you can easily produce).
If you don't insert food, they starve/ dont grow as fast, if you don't insert antibiotics, they get diseases/ maybe the DNA could get bad as well and if you don't insert new filters, there is a chance for the tank to burst (however) and the mob to escape.
As I have no idea how people like these ideas, I didn't took the effort to think about crafting recipies, but that shouldn't be a problem for me...
