Hodge-Podge age and future Raol's mods
Sat, 03/28/2020 - 17:57 (edited)

I've already mentioned this on the Modular Expansion topic, but now I want to make a separate topic for it.

After the upcoming RaolCraft Omega update (2.2, which will add new structures, minibosses, totems, gems, decorative blocks and more), there won't be another cycle of updates. Instead, a long series of Hodge-Podge III will begin.

Hodge-Podge III is the sequel of a mod by Eonaut. Right now it only includes 3 dimensions and one boss, while the original mod was a lot bigger. I decided to focus on Hodge-Podge for a bit so I will quickly add all the missing dimensions and bosses (and a lot of bonus content). Like in the times when there only was RaolCraft, except now there will only be Hodge-Podge.

I want to quickly add the missing content because it's kinda sad to see it in this state, and also because I want to integrate the lore from Hodge-Podge with the one from RaolCraft, but I can't really until it's complete.

This doesn't mean the other mods are discontinued though. At the end of the Hodge-Podge age, all my other mods will get a huge update (and, if MCreator 1.9.1 is released in the Hodge-Podge age, I will do a bonus update for RaolCraft just for the ore dictionary XD). This series of updates actually won't be too long, maybe it will just consist of something like 4 updates.

Actually, there also is another reason: I want to release new mods. And before start working on them, I want all the others to be complete.

And what are those new mods?

 

Well, the first one will be a sci-fi mod. Yes, after all those magic or mining mods, finally a futuristic mod XD. It won't be a "tech" mod though. There already is Pyromancy for automation. It will be a futuristic adventure mod (and yes, I got the idea for it from Trailblazer, but it will be different).

It will be a mod about space, antimatter, alternate universes, genetics, clones, time travel and much more. It will have many references from my other mods and its lore will be integrated with them.

It will actually mainly focus on space exploration and on another alternate universe made of antimatter, which is very similar to the regular minecraft universe except for some differences (the war between light and darkness never happened there for example).

There will be meteorites, armors that adapt to your playstyle, spaceships, alien invasions, jetpacks, helpful AIs and much more!

Here's an image of what could the villains look like (this is just a concept and these characters may or may not be in the mod):

Scifi bad guys

(I know it's a bad drawing but it was done on a mobile)

From left to right, they are:

  • An alien sciencist
  • Your clone
  • A mysterious time traveler
  • An evil alien colonizer from an antimatter universe
  • The son of the antimatter alternative of a familiar face
  • A space pirate
  • An evil AI (it's the creeper hologram on the table)

I have many ideas for it, but I still have to decide its name.

 

I also want to release a littler mod (littler than Pyromancy). I won't tell you its theme, bit I will let you guess it. It will be called "The Ultimate Plan". If you are minecrafty enough, you'll know ;)

EDIT (01/01/2020): The Ultimate Plan isn't going to be released soon. For those of you who want to try an early alpha of it, here is the download: https://mcreator.net/forum/55916/ultimate-plan-official-topic-early-downloadEditE

(04/28/2020): The Ultimate Plan is now officially released!! Link here: https://mcreator.net/modification/58658/ultimate-plan

I initially planned to make the baby dragon rideable; however, you can't control well flying mobs

We do plan to improve this in the upcoming updates, but the actual control of flying mobs might take some time to be added as there are no reference mobs for this and no similar mechanic or helper implemented in vanilla yet.

If this update will be released this year then I will wait for it. In the while I will work on my other mods :)

I don't want to release a useless mod, it would be like Minecraft without being able to place blocks XD

I understand. Better flying mobs will sure be released in this year, most likely soon, but for ridable flying mobs, I am not that sure as I did not do much research on this yet.

Actually, the pirate will probably be the first and easiest boss XD (but you might have to fight him again later)

I hope you will like the mod... And I hope I will manage to release it before 2021 XD

I added a download link for an early alpha of the Ultimate Plan here:

https://mcreator.net/forum/55916/ultimate-plan-official-topic-early-download

When the mod will be fully released, that topic will become the official discussion topic of the Ultimate Plan.

 

Anyway, let's get back to the Hodge-Podge age. A new update is coming soon (probably this month). It will reorganise the inventory, add a new dungeon and finally implement the 4th dimension: the Taint :D

Probably not. At least not soon XD

After all the content from Hodge-Podge II will be added, I will start creating new features, including dimensions (and I already have many ideas)

What do you think of "Even Horizon" as the name of the sci-fi mod? :D
