It has placable blocks and a unit that doesn't work, ignore that.

Build structures (possibly merge with previous mods, like the Runecraft mod) to create mobs, and then you act as the sole thinking "Hero" of your forces. You retain all of your normal abilities as a Minecraft player (I.e. you can harvest materials, remove and place blocks, etc).
The player would harvest resources and maintain management over the "base" as a whole, and each of its outposts. There could even be a custom map-generation algorithm that creates pockets of slowly renewing resources, so that traditional RTS-style resource gathering is possible without too much hassle. The algorithm could also place random "neutral" units and outposts sitting on top of resource quarries, etc.
It'd be a big undertaking, and so I'm not immediately going to jump on this idea, because.... it just wouldn't happen. It would be fucking sweet, but it's not gonna happen without some insane commitment. Oh well.
