Minions Mod is an interesting mod allowing players to call minions to mine, chop trees and carry them around. This mod installs outstanding functions to support players effectively:

Minions can:

  • Follow you around
  • Be sent to places
  • Chop down most any kind of trees, including Jungle giants
  • Carry you, animals and other players
  • Pickup and carry Items in their inventory
  • Dig mineshafts complete with stairwell
  • Dig out a custom sized space you define
  • Mine ore veins you point out to them
  • Intelligently strip mine where you tell them to
  • Return their goods and loot to you
  • Or to a Block with inventory (> 23 slots) you pointed out.

Specific technical information for those interested:

Minions use an A-star algorithm custom pathing system. It?s threaded and multicore-capable. Hitches and problems/teleporting you see all stem from Minecraft pathfollowing, which is ? lets call it suboptimal. The tree finding algorithm is threadbased aswell, and stops when it has found 16 trees or has scanned a 64×64 area. It supports mod Tree?s so long their custom Tree blocks have ?wood? in their name. Animal abduction works on all entities that extend EntityAnimal. Strip mining scans the walls and roofs of the dug shaft continuously for precious blocks. Anything that is not worthless (eg dirt, stone, gravel?) is considered precious, so it fully supports mod ores. Giving the order to mine an ore vein or having found such a vein while strip mining, the Minion will follow the vein and mine all connected Blocks of the same kind until there are no more. Then it will return to the player, or, if it was stripmining, return to that. They don?t come for free, you have to prove your worth by slaying living beings (to accumulate levels) and then take action for the dark gods. Only after a number of evil deeds they may grant you minions.
