Raise armies of skeletons to defend your base, or go to war with other players!

Along with the ability to raise armies, Overlord also includes:
  • An unlimited levelling system in which your skeletons get faster and stronger as they gain levels
  • An alliance system to allow alliances between players
  • Multiple AI modes for your skeletons' attacks and movement, which you can configure per-skeleton or army-wide.
  • Achievements!
  • Possibly a fun easter egg or two.

Now adds a manual in-game! Just install Guide API.
Check out my official Overlord addon, Mechanical Soldiers.

I'm working on it, it's a total rewrite for 1.15.2 with a lot of new features, so it's taking some time. Previews are available on my Patreon.

Hi, I see the the creator The_Fireplace responds to almost every question so I thought this would be the best place to ask. What does the squad editor tool do ad how do you use it? I have watched multiple videos and I cannot find the answer anywhere. Thanks

The squad editor allows you to create squads, which you can then assign army members to. When using the Overlord's Seal to set AI Modes, you can either set the AI for your whole army, or certain squads. To use the Squad editor to create a squad, you right click while holding it to open the GUI, type in the squad names that you wish to use, then close the GUI by pressing Done.

At the moment, I am only supporting 1.12.x, but you can look at the CurseForge for downloads going back to Minecraft 1.9.4.

Level 57 : Grandmaster Programmer
The_Fireplace
No, I can't. Going back that far would throw things off-balance, and require a rewrite of the skeleton warriors' and converted skeletons' inventory mechanics due to the lack of an off-hand. In addition, I would most likely have to rewrite parts of some of the item/block models, because the initial item json system was a bit different internally than it is in 1.9.4+

Level 57 : Grandmaster Programmer
The_Fireplace
Nope, I don't determine what their equipment looks like. The Alliance system allows you to make yours and other player's unable to attack each other. So for example, you would do:
/ally <PlayerName>
Then the other person will have to:
/allyaccept

Then your skeletons won't attack each other.

can't you make for version 1.8.9-1.7.10 pls
1
01/07/2017 11:11 am
Level 57 : Grandmaster Programmer
The_Fireplace
1.8.9, while it is possible, would require me rewriting the mechanics of Skeleton Warriors and Converted Skeletons to not use the offhand for arrows.
1.7.10 would additionally require coding the skeleton maker's rendering from the ground up, because they rely on the json rendering introduced in 1.8.

So no, I won't be supporting those versions. The earliest version I am willing to support is 1.9.

Bases and Castles and stuff, or class selection, I won't be adding to this mod. I will add more types of Skeletons, and once I've made more progress on The Wars Mod(Which does add castles, bases, and classes), perhaps I will see about making them work together so you can have teams and classes for your Skeletons. It's a long ways off.

Thanks! I'm watching now, and as usual, youtubers testing everything is a great way to find bugs. I have added the bugs seen in the video to the issue tracker, and will get to them when I get the chance.

The fire resistance thing apparently only protects from fire, not also lava, at the moment.
Also, the skinsuit drops if you remove it in Survival. And they don't drop from killed Skeletons at the moment, I should fix that.

Man, amazing. In a few updates I see great progress in the development of the mod, you exceeded even my expectations. Of course, lack adjustments and everything, but I would like to make a suggestion, currently skins system of skeletons is done by the players names on their heads. In my view, if you do a system similar to the Custom NPC, which allows you to change skin by the mod folder would be very good, since we could put our skins and not rely on users possess a look that give taste to play. No need to have those thousand divisions of Cust. NPC, but only some six skins patterns that could be altered by lowered further increase the efficiency of use of its mod. At the end of things, congratulations, I can already say I'm a fan of the work you have been doing. Keep it up, success!

I do not know if you come to know a mod called Mine & Blade Commander. He feigned almost the same as yours, but with a selection of units through a staff. With the recent arrival of series such as Game of Thrones and Vikings at the height of popularity, your mod is already good, but would be even better with a broader system of troops wars and skins associations, which could be done by upload to drive through the computer itself. Or even standard skins that represent different armies. What I'm getting at is: a simpler system of creating troops (which for some reason I can not create skeletons through Skeleton Maker) and selection of units in battle, for example, select ten to one side and ten to the other . I know that many players are looking for mods that enable the creation of a medieval army, since Minecraft itself is conducive to the creation of medieval themes, and also Youtubers that could use this mod stop create epic confrontations and series as a contest of kingdoms in Minecraft .

For me your mod is perfect, although I can not create the skeletons (@. @), And it can get even better if you dedicate yourself to it. I know that usually mod creators have several projects at once, but think especially in this.It has VERY VERY potential.

You can't create skeletons? And you followed the instructions in "Getting Started"?
As for default troops, I am adding one more to the base mod at the moment, and I may make add-ons with others in the future.

That's pretty cool! Honestly, I don't see how my boring model furniture mod thing got more then this. I've always wanted some sort of army/troops mod, and this seems like a nice way to implement that. Good luck!

Thanks! And keep in mind that your "boring model furniture mod"(which actually looks like something I want to try out) has been on here 6 months longer than this mod, so it has had more time to accumulate diamonds/favorites.

Nope. Just Skeleton Warriors. Though I am experimenting with a way to make it possible to make them look like players, and not burn in sunlight if they do.

You could always have it so the player can put flesh on them, if rotten, they turn into Zombies, which might be stronger. But if you cook it or go through some other process to clean the skin, they'd be turned into a normal player.

If the player wanted to change the skin, they could always use shears on the minion.

Actually, my plan is something along those lines. My plan is to have an item created with leather armor, rotten flesh, and maybe something else. This item, when you shift right click a skeleton warrior, gives it a player skin. To remove it, you use shears. This is already in progress, I am working on the rendering of the skin right now

Level 19 : Journeyman Crafter

Ah, alright.
Quick question: how is the skin done? As in, is it completely random, or does the player choose it, or is it just the player's skin?

Level 57 : Grandmaster Programmer
The_Fireplace
If I get it working right, the player will be able to name the item in an anvil to the player name they want the skin to be. If I can't get that to work, it will probably be either the owner's skin or Steve.
