Updated Combat Mechanics For The Modern Minecraft Theme!
Minecraft has had some beautiful updates come out recently that have completed changed the way we look at the game! It’s even more of an ‘Adventure Game’ as of late! I think that a combat update would complement the new focus of adventure very well! Of course, it is important to try and keep the very evident charm that the combat has currently, so I tried to keep it fairly simple. Slash - The standard attack that we currently see in the game. It is quick, and pretty effective. Smash - A charged attack with a cool down that does much more damage than the ‘Slash’ attack. The ‘Smash’ attack can also break ‘Blocks’, which we’ll get to in a moment. Block - Blocking will be activated by right-clicking. If you hold down right-click and someone hits you with a sword it takes half the damage away from the attack and the person blocking takes slight knockback. If you press right-click just as an attack is coming, and you time it just right, all damage from the attack will be mitigated. Smashes break through all ‘Blocks’ and ranged weapons and explosions ignore the ‘Block’ feature. When blocking attacks, your sword does indeed lose durability. I think that these features are very charming, and work very well for the game! They would add so much excitement to swashbuckling sword fights! It’s simple, yet takes practice, and I think it’s a good balance. Thanks! :)
