Hello guys, this is Wakigawa!
I am assembling a team of Modders to make this MOD. It will be tiring and the difficulty is great, but the results will be rewarding.
I'm willing to help in every way necessary for this idea to live and happen. There will be a day when YouTube animations and videos of Minecraft will be exactly equal to the game.
Anyway, this is the idea :
Have you ever thought about dodging a Zombie equipped with a sword, parrying your sword with another player in PvP or even blocking his "punches"? And even movements like rolling/kicking?
What about your enemy's corpse still lay down on the ground? What about looting it?
That sounds like awesome right? And it can get better.
Punching animations, swords, mining, climbing, jumping, rolling, parrying, forging and much more!
is another Key to the mod. Holding the classic Sword + Shield and blocking attacks and arrows,
Repelling arrows with sword, or pulling 2 arrows from your long/shortbow.
That's another idea for the Advanced Combat. Imagine yourself ripping the guts out of zombies, cutting skeletons in half, chopping a creeper's leg, or even another player! Making the mobs bleed, and even yourself. Arrows sticking to the MOB is a pretty nice idea aswell.
Combat Items and Proficiency
As you battle more, you get experience. Dodge/Parry more, Pull arrows more swiftly, Run faster, Climb faster! Ideas for items are: Shield, Throwing Knife, Daggers, Poisoning Objetcs using Poison Sacs dropped by Spiders, a GUI for Forging Items (Add separated pieces of customization) Sheat your sword in your back, or your bow, Customize your Armor and much more!
Make a room where you can smelt your Iron, and drop it into a bucket and forge your sword by hitting your hammer into it. Forging and Crafting was never as realistic. Show off your items in a Pedestal or Armory
Adding : The Forge, The Smelter, Hammers, Conductive Pipes and Sword Sheats/Show-Off Puppets
Holding a Torch while dual-wielding provides a light level.
Player Better Models
Add more "joints" to your Character! Make it roll, dance, lay down and even more! No more cheap jumping animations anymore!
Everybody already played a sneaking-type game. Metal Gear and many others. Imagine yourself invading and lockpicking doors and chests, assassinating players from behind, hiding bodies and more!
The Environment is much more alive. Animal noises, sounds and background music will give "that" survival/adventure feeling. It will be hazardous and beautiful. Animals and new natural mobs are of course, planned. And they will kill you, if necessary.
Heat will be one of the basic things in minecraft. From a firecamp to a fireplace. Temperature can kill you. Wear leather clothes and stay warm, or die.
That's all i can think of now. More ideas can and will be added to the topic.
