Hello. As a long time reader of these forums, I haven't really needed to post or reply to anything, really. You all seem to think of everything, though google has had to be used a few times to find a specific topic. But I've not been able to find a single Mob that would be able to place signs.
There are dozens of those 'creepypasta' stories, as well as a few more tame versions, of rare things in the mist that leave signs. It would be both interesting, and perhaps more immersive, if these stories were taken to a more literal and grounded level.
From the ominous and campy:
To the helpful or silly:
ALL HAIL NOTCH
HERE THERE BE DIAMOND
I would be very much interested in knowing whether anyone has done any work on this, has any ideas, or has any criticisms. thank you.
Well now, it's slightly disappointing to see so little interest here.
Hopefully i can get some form of response soon, because I really am interested in trying my hand at this.
One would think the trolls would LOVE this topic. :tongue.gif:
Herobrine would be a fun, and probably the most used, version of this.
As for the 'special sign', I don't know if I see the point. Signs aren't too hard to make until one has explored a great deal and eliminated the local forestry. In fact, this may act as a boon to those players who didn't think through setting one too many forest fires. If you disagree still, feel free to say so. Perhaps in one version the signs are immutable.
This isnt impossible, its just require taking some methods from some other items and mobs, possibly from other mods(only if you got permission) but i think this would only be cool, like if the sign pointed you in the direction of like a new cave, or a hidden chest with treasure.
Sorry for the delay, finals week caught up to me.
I'll be sending out my feelers into what java community I have to see whether I can get some assistance with this. I am 90% going to do this (yay me). I hope that the minecraft community will welcome this.
