(a Golden Sun Minecraft mod for version 1.11.2)


This project has been in progress for quite some time. I think the result will prove to be a great boon for the art of Minecraft world building using assets from Golden Sun. It's quite a beautiful mod so far, I hope you enjoy it!

Posting this preemptively because I honestly can't wait to finish development, compile it, and actually start building with it.
Be sure to screenshot your creations and send them to Hiroyuki Takahashi (or, even better, Nintendo) as a friendly daily reminder to
rev up development for a Golden Sun title for Nintendo Switch.

DOWNLOAD
(by clicking this link, you promise you'll make a back-up of your world before loading up the mod)

This mod was created using code generated by Pylo's MCreator.
If you wish to create your own Minecraft mod: https://mcreator.pylo.co/

To install, simply download the mod from the link above and place the resulting .JAR file in your Minecraft mods folder. Forge is required to run this mod.

Creator's comments...
Version 1.0.0: "Creating the ability to build a world that faithfully employs the designs and artwork of the Golden Sun series within Minecraft through the use of new tools and advancements in Minecraft modding was the goal for this mod. Memorable set pieces from Sol Sanctum to Mercury Lighthouse, Lemuria, and more have been captured in meticulous detail, from the arched doorways and wall decorations of Mercury Lighthouse to the two microscopic red decorations that adorn the entryways of the castle in Lemuria (did you know this design only appears twice in all of Lemuria?). The use of relatively new 3D modeling tools such as oBeeware's Cubik Studio has greatly improved the ease of implementation for 3D objects in Minecraft, so much so that it is now possible to generate 2D 3D-capable objects directly from a source image or 3D object file via voxelation. This was a huge benefit, as many sprites and textures from the series which demand three dimensions to translate and truly 'look good' in Minecraft are now able to be implemented in-game (circular models are still a pain, don't get me wrong, this is Minecraft we're talking about here -- I put in a good effort with the Boulder object, at least! Perhaps a switch from .JSON to .OBJ is in order?).

Object positioning was taken into consideration in development as well, given the top-down camera angle present in the Golden Sun games -- objects will face south at all times with few exceptions, forcing you to rethink your designs and build with the Golden Sun camera perspective in mind. New 3D objects, new blocks, custom animated water designs straight from the Golden Sun world, and more will be included. Also included are a great selection of sounds from the game. The classic Golden Sun "jump" sound will occur when the user jumps, (I will include a version that omits this as well as I can see some users finding it annoying after extended play) the explosion sound will occur when Sol Sanctum platforms are placed, an eerie wind-in-the-trees sound will play should you happen to right-click on a Cursed Tree, etc. Overall, this mod packs a lot of character, wonderful sprites and textures, and just "looks good".
I hope you like it!"


The mod adds a huge selection of 3D objects, new blocks, and more to Minecraft.

SCREENSHOTS

Spoiler for Hidden:
































The mod goes great with Custom NPC mods, such as Noppes' Custom NPCs, which allows custom user-created quests, in-game dialog, essentially everything anyone will ever need.

FEATURES

 Venus Djinni Set Mars Djinni Set Jupiter Djinni Set Mercury Djinni Set

3D Golden Sun models appearing in Minecraft for the first time.
Archways
Modular planks
Seamless textures with articulations
Operable doors
Sound effects
Animated fluids:
Lemuria Fountain water
Mercury Lighthouse water
Desert oasis water
Sol Sanctum "deep blue"
And more!


PROBLEMS?

If you encounter any problems, post a crash report here so I can take a look at it.
It should be 99.8% stable. I'd be surprised if it caused any issues for anyone other than ID conflicts with other mods, which is unlikely and easily fixed.

9/27/2017: Fix one thing, break twenty other things! Updated to version 1.0.2 with the following fixes:

- Fixed some object textures that broke in v.1.0.1.
- Updated certain objects to include rotations based on which way the player is facing when placing the block to provide continuity with Golden Sun Statues.


9/24/2017: Updated to version 1.0.1 with the following fixes:

- Fix for incorrect object names in GUI.
- Moved Venus Lighthouse Pad object to correct Creative tab.


Here are a couple of quick screenshots of a structure built with Venus Lighthouse blocks:









A model for one of the bridges in Vale. This model will be scaled-up slightly and then broken out into three or more separate parts, so that the player can customize the length of the bridge in-game as part of a future Golden Sun mod:

UPDATE 9/13:

Some bad news on the Golden Sun Minecraft update recently posted on the forum for anyone interested. The developer I was working with, Flaw, decided to have a tantrum over a minor project design disagreement and restricted access to the code repository for the project. Unfortunately this means I have withdrawn my contributions to the project and will no longer be assisting with development for this project, for which I was the design lead with roles in marketing, audio design, texturing, CTM resource pack design, 3D modeling, and building, among other tasks. This is a real shame, as this was a dually ambitious but feasible project that I was more than happy to devote my spare time towards for the majority of a year, and development of this project came along farther and was of a higher quality than any Golden Sun Minecraft project I had seen -- we were fast approaching a testable state where we planned to advertise the in-progress project to interested Golden Sun fans who may have been interested in joining the team to supplement our two-man band developer and designer team. It is unfortunate Flaw has decided to take the project in this direction. I apologize on his and my behalf to anyone who may have been looking forward to following the progress of this project. Wishing Flaw all the best in his future endeavors.

Original Post:

Updated with a quick project update:

Daddy Poi: I'm having a thought. So I know Atrius's editor is slow at saving sprites.... So I've been thinking.   I am considering another console program.  This time, for importing and exporting sprites/animations. Image files (for sprites), binary files (for animation data), and maybe binary or text files for Settings. Would certainly be cool if it works out. - Console programs are fun, when you can (at least temporarily) cheat out making a full interface editor for them. =P

Daddy Poi: Tried to list those in order of importance, but anyway....

Daddy Poi: GSHC, GS Speedrunning, /r/Golden Sun, GS United Nations, ToK.  Sixth one is border-line I'm not sure.
25, April, 2020, 08:00:21 PM
Daddy Poi: (low as in <100)
25, April, 2020, 08:00:04 PM
Daddy Poi: So while there are quite a few GS Communities out there. There are only up to maybe ~6 Discords worth even the consideration of joining, I think. Most of the rest of them have a fairly low member count. (Of which I can tell?)

Atrius: Whelp, there it goes... Just what I didn't want.  Have fun with that I guess...   
19, March, 2020, 05:20:25 AM
Daddy Poi: So like. Replace the "e" with another "e"? Alright. Gotcha.

Daddy Poi: Good work.
19, March, 2020, 04:44:10 AM
Atrius: Nah, any member could change their name to what I did, there's a trick to it.  I just fixed it so that now the Cbox will use your new name if you change it though, so... That part of the problem is fixed.
19, March, 2020, 04:41:53 AM
Daddy Poi: For which? It may be that normal users can't change their names to used names, but admins can?
19, March, 2020, 04:39:57 AM
Atrius: Sorry if the Cbox keeps breaking, I'm trying to make that be less of a thing.
19, March, 2020, 04:02:04 AM
Daddy Poi: Looks like ID Fraud. You're under arrest. :D  Oh wait.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:56 AM
Atrius: Yup, that's a thing.
19, March, 2020, 03:57:08 AM
Atrius: Just testing something, for science.
