Okay guys, I'm expecting this to be a rather long-winded post, so bear with me. I've been rolling around the idea of creating an advanced interactivity system for the AI in a game, and minecraft fits it the best. However, I don't know java very well, nor do I know much about the minecraft/bukkit code. I am willing to learn, though. This is not /exactly/ a plugin request, as I am willing to do most of the work as long as I have help with it. Otherwise, if someone makes it, I would love them forever if I could review the code and help, too. The concept of the plugin is to provide the villagers with more advanced functions to make them seem more alive, or living to be more accurate. It would have to modify one existing entity heavily and create a new, more abstract one. Plugin name: AdvancedTowns What the plugin would do: Modify villagers for the following: Provide villagers with a server-stored inventory Allow villagers to store their inventory in town chests Allow villagers to trade resources with eachother (possibly with players via right clicks and chat) Allow villagers to gather resources / mine Allow villagers to place blocks from inventory in order to build the pre-existing minecraft structures Allow villagers to build golems for defense Allow villagers to have specific roles (farmer, miner, woodcutter) when population reaches milestones Allow villagers to designate a house as their own, or a place of work in the case of farmers or blacksmiths Create an abstract "town" that does the following: Allow a population of villagers to be designated as a "town" Perhaps a town name on a sign placed on the town well Towns would maintain population counts Towns would maintain a current jobs list Towns would assign new villagers jobs based on what is needed in the town Towns assign a "current project" that all of the villagers attempt to mine/gather resources for Towns maintain a resource list of all of the resources in the town's chests / inventories Towns tell villagers to start building a new structure once the appropriate resources are gathered The entire premise of the plugin is to allow villagers to collect resources, trade with one another, and build structures to live in, which would cause the towns to actually grow over time. The buildings that they create would be pre-existing building templates that (hopefully) exist in minecraft code already. I'm aiming, essentially, for the buildings that minecraft already has. If not, then we would also need to add some building templates for houses, smiths, farms, maybe an inn, a well, etc. The towns would attempt to make sure at least every pair of villagers has a home, and from there to ensure that each villager has a role. While the town has a small population it would assign villagers with general jobs like "resource gatherer" that would cause them to collect wood, stone, iron, dirt, etc. Once the population increases enough to support a more diverse economy, it can start giving more narrow jobs like woodcutter, miner, smith, and farmer. Towns would need to maintain a list of current jobs (as well as updating if any of the villagers die) so that it can reassign villagers or provide new villagers with jobs as needed, in areas that are lacking. It will also need to keep track of the number of golems that belong to the town so that it can keep adequate defenses. I have a list of scope-creep goals that I would like to add in if this plugin actually takes off. These are: Providing a thief job for villagers Causing villagers to attack thieves when they steal (whether they be players or other villagers) Allow towns to declare war on eachother Allow towns to form alliances Allow trading across towns Visually show villagers holding active blocks, like players or endermen Visually show villagers wearing armor I have a feeling I'm probably talking about something insane and unfeasible, but, do let me know your opinions and if you would like to help or start the project yourself.
