What should RaolCraft focus on
Wed, 07/11/2018 - 06:41 (edited)

While playing my modded survival world (I didn't use many mods, just Actually Additions, all the mods of the Thermal Series, Redstone Arsenal, Quark and a few utility mods), I noticed how little impact has my mod in the game. Most of the mod is unlocked after beating the Enderdragon. Most midgame stuff is just pointless. I mean, who would ever make a house of potato blocks? Who would even craft golden carrot blocks?

The mod before beating the Enderdragon is just bushes and pathmakers.

So, I decided that I should focus on something rather than adding a bunch of random decorative blocks and useless materials. 

What should I focus on at the moment? Machines? Adventure? Magic? Combat? 

I don't want to add things that ruin the atmosphere, distract the player from vanilla gameplay or are unbalanced, I only want to add something that has a use.

So, I'm asking your help. What would you love to see in the mod? What is the mod missing? What features should be improved?

Thanks for reading and sorry for bad English

I think that in the next update I will add the flora dimension and a few midgame utilities

I actually planned to add 3 ice bosses with custom models but it takes too time so I will add them later

Honestly I like adventure stuff :)

Although Magic and Machines would be pretty cool too

If you add weapons that are OP i would suggest adding OP mobs too which makes it more fun eg. Orespawn, Crazy Craft ect.

Thanks for the suggestions

@Kirito_20256

I don't think I will add 3x3 dig tools, and not because I don't want to add them, but because I don't know how to add them. They are a planned feature, however, I don't know how to check for harvest levels for blocks and how to dig 9 blocks based on player direction.

Also, what do you mean by decorative boards? If you mean the slabs, I don't think they will be added in the near future as they are pretty hard to add.

 

@NaiduBoys

I don't think I will ever add OP weapons. OP stuff ruins the game. I think that I will instead add weapons that can aren't OP by themselves but can make you win a battle if used correctly (like vanilla shield). (I honestly have no idea on what "not OP but powerful if used correctly" weapons to add XD, so if you have an idea please write that down here)

Sorry for bad English

Different arrow materials, such as Iron Arrow, Gold Arrow,... Maybe even a TNT arrow!

Also different types of shield, each tier having more strength.

Magic spells.

Thanks for the suggestion

I can make new arrows, however I will need to make new bows for these arrows as 1 bow = 1 arrow with Mcreator :( I think I will add reinforced bows in the near future

I already tried to add shields, however I can't get the "damage item" procedure to work

Magic Spells? They can already be achieved with Wands. In the future I will also add some spell books.

 

I think that in this update I will add a mana generator (very expensive), some new rare mobs that drop ender pearls and spawn in the Overworld (so you can go to the end quicker; the end isn't endgame in RaolCraft) a new dimension and a few utilities (maybe also the reinforced bows, however they'll shoot normal arrows)

@RaolTheBest There is a way to make a tool mine multiple blocks... Just use the remove block with drop event. I think there is a code you can use to make it check if the block is minable or not... (I believe it's the default one, but you might not even need it in fact)

Fri, 07/13/2018 - 16:18

@RaolTheBest I believe there is also a way to make the bow use multiple kinds of ammo. Just add a comma between each item and an "if arrow" let's say it does 9 damage or  "if arrowfire" it does 7 damage and puts the mob on fire, etc...

 

(By the way, I know this isn't the way to write the code. It's just an exemple.)

How about you add in the flora dimension razor sharp petal-throwing flowers and player-eating plants or traps. Possibly even toxic plants and small criters or a kind of gaz that is emitted by special water in a swamp-like sub-biome in the dimension and living veggies. Or not. Your choice. I'm okay with both :D
