Now the morph mod is great and all but firstly you need to go into creative and kill an NPC of the race you want to morph into, most likely this will be an NPC of the faction you want to ally yourself with which means you then need to use commands to reset your alignment and your achievements, This really annoying to do and the mob killing animation is really immersion breaking this can be desabled in the config in later versions of morph but unfortunately not in the version for 1.7.10 another problem is that the player can't sleep while morphed by default this happily can be disabled in the config but the reason why it's disabled by default is because practically all mobs don't have a sleeping animation so from another player's perspective you just stand on top of the bed Which just looks absolutely terrible,
So what if their could be an easier way? Maybe races could be added, but how? Now I know some people don't like the idea so what if races could be added not to the mod directly but maybe as an optional add-on so that people who want to shrink down and be a dwarf could do so and people who would rather keep their custom skin could do so aswell and on certain servers they could have the add-on and on others they could not, Depends on what the server admins think so anyway on to the details:
Firstly players would be able to choose between 5 races human, dwarf, Hobbit, elf, and orc,
Secondly although players won't be able to have custom skins there would still be a fair amount of customization involved I'm thinking Terraria style character customization where you'd get to choose your character's hair style including whether or not your character has a beard (however this would be mandatory on dwarves) your character's clothes what color they are etc,
Thirdly this would all happen when you first load a world inside a cool GUI
Anyway I really hope this gets added and I think it's a really good way to implement it kudo this post if you agree.
