The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
My Mind Palace
For the past few weeks, I have been re-reading the Percy Jackson Series, and the Heroes Of Olympus Series, and after a bit of dreaming(You know, those painfully annoying ideas that come to your mind when you sleep) I started thinking how cool it would be to introduce the whole Percy Jackson universe into Minecraft.
So I started drawing up some crafting recipes and pictures of a cartoon Kronos with his eyes crossed out, and began to expand my idea. That's when it hit me, maybe I should turn this into a Thaumcraft addon, I mean Thaumcraft has the research mechanic that would be a complete pain in the behind to code, and in the 1.8.9 versions there's things like "Clockwork Minds" and "Biothaumic Minds" which are just screaming to be used for the mind of "Festus" Leo's magical robot dragon in The Heroes Of Olympus.
Back to the Main Point, I have begun work on a Thaumcraft addon to introduce the Universes Of Rick Riordan's Books into Minecraft! I currently have the Thaumcraft and Baubles APIs referenced in eclipse so I can begin coding some things. I am relatively new to making minecraft mods so don't expect speedy progress, but I feel like this will be very fun. I don't want to spoil any of my plans yet and I actually don't have many of them, so if you want to be able to sail a giant Trireme through the seas and blow up new mobs from Greek mythology in your minecraft world, Please Please comment and share your ideas!
This mod is Heavily WIP So I cannot post and pics yet, so for you people out there who say "No Pics No Clicks" Please don't, just don't post that, as the only thing I could show you would be a tree in my testing world which is from Vanilla Minecraft.
To those of you who have never read any of the books I mentioned above, give them a try! When I'm not in school or studying for exams, I play Minecraft, Call Of Duty: Black Ops II and read books of all varieties, and you should too! If your not sure what their about exactly, google them! There very popular.

Festus Head: Shoots Flames
Minotaur: Will kill you
Satyr: Will hide in the forest and fight for you
