In this mod, you can create defenders to help guard you from the dark creatures of the night.
Command your defenders, choose their name, and lead them into battle!

Important changes for people playing multiplayer
Now Defenders will attack other players and their defenders by default. Upon spawning your first Defender, shift-right click it. There is a new menu for setting friendly players. Right now, I'm not storing the friendly players in the best way, so if all your defenders die, you will need to set new friendly players for the new one. I plan to make this better ASAP. Currently, it will sync between newly added defenders as long as one of your defenders are alive though.

This hasn't been extensively tested, so I don't know if it works. Note that this is only for versions after 1.6.4

Wait what? You ACTUALLY updated this to 1.7? What about 1.8+?
I said I would never update any mods to 1.7. I said it's possible later versions, with the intention of never really getting to it. Well what changed? I started working on some other amazing ideas that for sure need to be AT LEAST 1.7 because 1.6 is so obsolete, sadly. This only took a day to update to 1.7 because it's a rather small mod.

Originally about 2 years ago I started to update this, and got scared off by all the errors. But today, I just went in and started updating. It went pretty well actually. It is planned for me to update it to 1.8 and eventually 1.9 soon as well, which shouldn't be as drastic as the jump between 1.6 and 1.7.

Will other mods be updated to 1.7?
Yes, especially the smaller mods. Next on the list to update is the Coffin Mod. RA mod? Not in the foreseeable future.
List of for sure mods:
-Coffin Mod
-A yet unreleased mod for 1.6.4 that I made about a year ago.(It's called the Skeleton Reanimating Mod, killing a skeleton splits them into individual pieces. If you don't break the most important pieces, they will put themselves back together after a little while with the pieces still left on the ground. It is complete for the most part, tell me if I should bother releasing the 1.6 version or just release it for 1.7.)
-More Enderpearls Mod's Successor(Not a direct successor, read the More Enderpearls Mod page for more information)

What are the features of a Defender?:
Click Here
-Shift Right-Clicking Defenders will open up a gui where you can change their name, see their owner and health, and choose their ai.

-Defenders have their own(currently weapons and armor) inventory of items you can give them!

-You can get different Tiers of defender that have more health!

-If a Defender's name is the same as a player who exists and has a skin, the players skin will be applied to the Defender! You could have an army of you if you want!

-Your Defender will definitely take damage while fighting so you can heal him by right clicking him with some food! Otherwise they will regen by themselves, but very slowly.

Types of Defender AI
Click Here
-Wander: The Defender will walk around aimlessly.

-Defend Position: The Defender will stay in the spot it is in when you select defend position. If mobs come nbearny the Defender will kill the mob then come back to the position.

-Follow and attack nearby mobs: Does exactly what the title of this AI says.

-Wolf AI : Defender will act exactly like a wolf.

-Tell me any more ideas that you have for AI types! 4 is quite few....

How do I get a Defender?:
Click Here
To spawn a defender, you need to craft the spawn defender item. there are 4 different tiers of defenders, and 5 different types. The only differences between types is the sword they spawn with and the amount of health they have.

Sword + Dirt Block + Sword
The two swords must be the same, the defender spawns with the sword it was crafted with.

Tier I: Wood-20 Health
Tier II: Gold-40 Health + Speed & Stone-40 Health
Tier III: Iron-60 Health
Tier IV: Diamond-100 Health

Thought of a better idea for how they should be made? Tell me below!

Latest version is 5.1 for 1.7.10. Link is to the right of the post, just under the picture

-Update 5.0 for 1.7.10 Link
-Update 4.7 for 1.6.4: Link

Planned Features:
Click Here
-A small inventory that can hold items like potions, so they can give themselves effects, and throw them at enemies!!

-TONS more AI options, such as an option to attack any entity that is not an animal(because some mods have hostile mobs that do not extend EntityMob(Most hostile mobs extend this class), I believe Better Dungeons is like this, which would go great with this mod if the Defenders would attack them, so I must add that feature. Without this feature Defenders would be useless in Better Dungeons.

-Post your own ideas below!

Enjoy! ~~~

Is this at all still active? The Defenders attack friendly players in my server (that is online uuid enabled) even though they are to stand guard and they have them in their friendly players slot.

Yes, I am still supporting this, just not my top priority right now. Will fix right now and release a small update. The update will contain that fix and something I added a few months ago put forgot to post: Item Locking. Because if you dont lock a defenders items you will likely accidently give them stuff. So after you give them their desired equipment, you can lock their items, and unlock them if you want to give more. 

Update coming in about 5 minutes. EDIT: Done. Tell me if it works now =)

Sorry for the long wait, but yeah, it works smoothly for me now. thanks. =)
It's a really great mod, my survival base feels safer now.

suggestion: AI option to allow defenders to go into a certain area (like a barracks) after a certain amount of time has passed while they were defending that the player set. This would sorta work like shifts for a real life guard, like a night guard or a day guard.

Another suggestion that makes the purpose for the previous suggestion: sword durability applies to defenders too, so after a certain amount of hits, their swords break, or even any other item. When it does, they fall back and they take a short break on replacing their broken items from a chest a player placed for them. For your potions feature your planning, you could even make the soldiers take the potions out of the chest and use them for battle later. However, the only time they would retreat would be if their sword breaks.
