[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]BASICS:[/font]Welcome to my Minecraft modification! Currently, I'm starting on the textures and models needed for the next few updates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Basically, I aim to create the Bionicle Universe, or at least Mata-Nui, in this modification. It will eventually include full Toa Armor, which when worn will grant the user Elemental Powers as well as an Elemental Energy bar, so use it wisely. The Toa Armor must also be worn with a Kanohi to grant greater powers and Elemental Energy, and the power of the mask itself. Arm yourself with Tahu's iconic Fire Sword, or Lewa's Jungle Hatchet, and much more!Have no fear, because if you get bored of torching Creepers and making Cyrogenic Zombies, the Rahi will come into play! I plan to add in the 2001 Rahi (such as Muaka, Nui-Rama, Nui-Jaga, and more!), each with their own fighting styles and abilities, providing a fresh challenge for an experienced Minecraft player. Also included will be Matoran Mobs that live in respective villages that you can protect, or harvest masks from!Many other features will be added as I work, progress coming faster if someone would volunteer with programming. Boss fights, new enemies, and continuous mask updates should also be coming along further into the modification. For more details, see the timetable below:First Release: A few weapons and crafting recipes for Mata masks (currently powerless) and weapons. Each one will have a different crafting recipe using elemental blocks, like Kopaka's Ice Sword will be snow blocks and a stick. A few other small items should be added, such as Heatstones (function like Flint and Steel), Lightstones (for those authentic Bionicle torches),Second Release: A Matoran mob that drops powerless Kanohi. The colors and mask should be randomized to make this mob unique in every village. This will also add in the various blocks needed for the next update, accessible in creative.Third Release: Matoran villages that naturally spawn in the appropriate locations (ex. Le-Koro in a Jungle Biome), filled with huts and naturally spawning Matoran, Turaga, and Ussal Crabs!Fourth Release: Mob update! I'm going to add mobs based on the first Rahi sets, like a Muaka, Nui-Jaga, Nui-Rama, Mana, Tarakava, Gukko, Fikou, Takea, and more! Here is where it starts getting good!Fifth Release: The Kanohi Update! Powered Kanohi should be done by now for the Mata and Turaga, as well as a naturally spawning (but rare) Kini-Nui Shrine, where a player could fuse one of each Mata Mask into a Golden Kanohi! Prepare for a dangerous quest to find them all, as each powered Kanohi may be found in a different place! The Kini-Nui will also be a source of Toa Stones (or something to craft them), which will be used to make weapons infused with the Toa's Power!Sixth Release: Bohrok! I'm working on and really look forward to this update, which will include all six breeds and some of their destructive powers. They will mostly just destroy a few blocks, and will attack the player.Seventh Release: The Bohrok nest and the Bahrag bosses! A boss fight to save the island of Mata-Nui! Possibly with Energized Protodermis puddles that, when crafted with the corresponding armor/mask/tool, will turn it into a Nuva item!Eighth Release: The Bohrok-Kal, dangerous servants of the Bahrag, will awake and attack the player after their queens are defeated! Prepare for a fight!And so on with Rahkshi, more Kanohi, and maybe even Makuta! I'll see how far this gets off the ground, and any help with programming would greatly be appreciated. This will probably be a side-side-project with my social life (gasp!) and my other projects. I just want to know what everyone thinks!
[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]RELEASES AND DOWNLOADS:[/font]So, with Dual Matrix making more progress than me, here are some releases he has put together:

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]PREVIEWS[/font]PREVIEW 0: The Previously Seen Bohrok MobWill be added in later, and probably updated. The skin looks terrible.PREVIEW 1: Sprite ProgressNow updated, includes Great and Noble masks of 2001, Toa Tools, Turaga Badges of Office, Toa Armor, Disks, Protodermis Tools, Protodermis, Heatstone, and Lightstone.PREVIEW 2: The Nui-Rama mobLook out for this guy in Biocraft (when it comes out)!PREVIEW 3: Matoran MobWhen they are implemented, they will have masks and hex decimal coloring, so they can be more randomized.PREVIEW 4: Kahu RenderLook out for this guy in Biocraft! Also should have energy (similar to Energized Creeper) around wings in flight. This was just a quick render in Blender, since I couldn't get textures to work properly in Techne.PREVIEW 5: Turaga Matau ModelAlso will have Mask and staff when he is released, maybe minor air powers.
[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]FAN-MADE SKINS[/font]Also, if you're lacking a skin to try this modification out on, feel free to try my Lewa skins, either blank so he can equip Toa Armor, or colored if you want to look better. Here's some more by our brilliant texture artist TFGalvatron: Kopaka, Site with forums removed. -B6, Site with forums removed. -B6 and Site with forums removed. -B6. And Gali by Takua the Chronicler. Feel free to make your own, and they could turn up here!
