What is Custom NPCs?
Custom NPCs is a mod that allows you to create your Minecraft character or various NPCs (Non-Playable Characters) for others to interact with. This mod is geared towards content creators and players who want to liven their worlds, modpacks, or servers with characters that can be interacted with.
- Tools to help with the creation of NPCs such as the NPC Wand
- Lots of extra armor, tools and weapons to decorate your NPCs
- An interface allowing you to fine-tune your NPCs' behavior
- The ability to add quests that your NPCs can give players
- The ability to add dialogue and conversations to use for interactive-ness and character development
- Plenty of NPC models and skins to choose from
-The ability to use the skin of a player as your NPC's skin (You must be connected to the internet for this to work properly)
How do you install the mod?
You can find plenty of tutorials on the web for installing mods. You WILL, however, need Forge/FML to add the mod to the game. Other launchers such as the Technic platform have it in some modpacks.
How to spawn NPCs
You can spawn NPCs simply by equiping the NPC wand, which can be crafted with bread and sticks in the shape of a hoe, then right clicking this will spawn a NPC with a random name. Open their GUI by right clicking them again.
Right click NPCs with wand and it will open his/her GUI you will see a name box. Just click and type a name and it will change. Then where it says texture a bit lower down click select it will then open a new screen where you can select which skin you'd like you're NPC to have. You can also clone NPCs with the NPC Cloner (Which is crafted with bread and sticks in an axe shape).
To make your NPC drop certain items, click on Drops. Put what you'd like your NPC to drop in the holder and edit the percentage of chance they have of dropping that item.
The game may crash after exiting the NPC's GUI and entering back into the GUI. A patch to this is unknown right now.
*Note* Some other things i'd love to see added here is how to create quests and banks and how to edit the talking and stuff.
The npc crystal is used to save the npc's data inside the crystal which you can use later to spawn clones of the original npc. Use it by right clicking an NPC or mob which will then replace the empty crystal with an enchanted crystal with the npc's data in it. Use it again by right-clicking the ground which will spawn a clone of the original npc. Note: The original npc will disappear when you use the empty crystal on it, but it will be saved in the crystal, so you can re-spawn it immediately.
