Topic category: Feature requests and ideas for MCreator
Hello, I am __Jacobb__
I am a advanced modder and I think my request will be taken into account
I've been creating mods for almost a year now, I've released some good mods. I would like to ask (in my opinion) for the most important function that could be in the near future.
This is a simple attack animation . Yes I know there is such a thing as Geckolib. However, in my opinion, it is too time consuming to create fairly uniform things. So let's say I mod around 100 humanoid mobs over the course of my career. I just wish they would move their weapons (like Steve) on the attack. If I wanted to animate all these models (because, unfortunately, I still have to do animations of walking, death, etc., because that's how geckolib works) And it's really time-consuming. And in my opinion, this process could be shortened. You can add 1 move (like steve) I called him in the picture (attack animation). In the menu, you could choose the dice that would make this move. You could also choose the lack of such an animation as in the attached picture.
Such a function would improve the quality of mcreator modifications by up to 20%. I am a really experienced mod (Each of my mods has more than 7,000 downloads (curse forge)) and something like this could revolutionize mcreator. When I have to work on an animation for 3 hours in Geckolib and do the attack animation in 5 minutes, that's a big difference.
Many early modders could confidently use this feature. In my experience, people often make humanoid monsters. This is my dream function. Now making a qualitative army of Illagers or pirates will be very simple and will save a lot of time.
I hope you will listen to my proposal
Thanks for read!
