Minecraft Comes Alive
Minecraft Comes Alive (MCA) is a Minecraft mod that replaces Minecraft's villagers with normal player-like NPCs. It works in single player, LAN, and SMP.
Villagers can be interacted with - you can talk to them, ask them to follow you, set their home, give them gifts, etc. Interacting with people builds relationships. Get your relationship high enough and you will be able to marry someone.
After getting married, you will be able to have children who will do many chores for you such as: Farming, Fishing, Woodcutting, Hunting, and Mining.
Children will eventually grow up into adults. Adults can get married and have children of their own, and this cycle can repeat indefinitely!
At runtime, MCA has no external dependencies other than Minecraft Forge.
For development, MCA depends on Lombok. It will be installed automatically when you set up your development environment. Install the Lombok plugin for your relevant IDE if you have trouble building in your IDE.
