Minecraft General

Recommended Posts

So I just looked through the wiki after not having played Minecraft in a while... And found that they added Stained glass. Excuse me while I get addicted again.

Stained glass is what I both love and hate about Mojang. On the one hand, it's cool that they added it. On the other, I really can't comprehend how it wasn't added earlier. In fact, I think it WAS, as an April Fool's "joke", and removed.

They had a lot of problems getting it to work right and stuff of that nature. Opacity problems and junk. Likely the recent code-tidying allowed it to be a possibility.

 

I highly recommend anyone who hasn't played in a while, or hasn't played due to how poorly it ran, to try it once more. Not only did they add a ton of features in the latest updates, but the game runs muuuuuch more smoothly. I regularly get 60+ fps on my old machine that used to get 5-15fps during 1.5 and below.

Wanted to take a moment to say a VERY belated congrats to you 999 for getting featured by PopularMMOs for his Scaperune mod. Regardless of my disagreements, that's still a big accomplishment and I know you put a lot of work into it. Grats :)

 

 

Apologies for late reply but I am not very active on tipit and don't play runescape at all anymore.

 

I have had a few pretty big mod reviews! It kind of blew up and snowballed at some point, most confusingly it seems to be extremely popular in spanish speaking countries so I don't understand some of the biggest reviews :(.

 

Although it has died a bit as I have had to stop updating since I started university I ran a server as well for the mod that had 20+ players pretty consistently for the time I was still working on it. 

 

Never wanted to look like I was spamming tipit as there is tiny amounts of relative exposure here, more wanted to share with people here. 

 

Sadly the mod looks like it won't be updated to 1.7 for a very long time, the framework for working with mods is not even ready to start it and it is normally ready 24 hours after, telling you how big a change to the code it was. It will require rewriting almost all the code for the like 300-400 features in the mod >.>.

A fully working barrows (with mobs/armor/sets/set effects) was all added ingame a bit after that mod review.

Started a new server, a friend is hosting it and it's now fully functioning with portals to Plotworld, PVP, and Survival. Just now looking for members, we're hoping to stream to twitch.tv as well.

Any of you guys play on PlayMindcrack? It's a pretty cool server for those of you who don't know, it's got Dwarves Vs. Zombies, King of the Golden Monocle and a bunch of other stuff. If any of you know Mindcrack you've probably heard of it. It's pretty fun and I'd recommend it to anyone bored of just kind of doing the normal Minecraft thing all the time.

 

Server is us.playmindcrack.com and the site is just playmindcrack.com

Speaking of normal Minecraft, I am genuinely in love with the new dark oak trees. They grow like they're on steds, produce 30+ logs per four saplings, and the planks look dense and "sturdy" so it's easy to use them aesthetically in construction projects.

 

Currently in process of designing a tree farm consisting of several glass towers and minecart systems / water canals which deliver the wood to a central point for ease of access. Taking screenshots so I might keep a mini journal here, but it's in vanilla so it might take some time.

also the map shown at the end rotated the right way

I'm curious, how did you do all the landscaping and whatnot in it? Like, how did you set up the world so the biomes were in the exact place you wanted, and the ground was shaped in a certain way, and the River Lum ran exactly where it does in relation to everything else?

I did very little of the map building, that was done firstly by Podcrash, then my servers staff.

 

But all the landscaping was done by hand (with tools like mcedit though of course) so there are not really any biomes, every river, tree building etc was put there on purpose.

That's impressive, landscaping on that scale takes forever.

MFW I've only just discovered enchanting books on lower levels is about ten times easier than waiting for level 30, in the absence of a good XP farm. Pretty much wasted three diamond picks on crappy enchantments. I always assumed waiting for level 30 and wishing on luck was the most effective strategy. I didn't even know you could combine same-leveled books for the next rank.

 

That'll teach me to think first.

Anyone else have Industrial Craft? I've been trying to get back into this with the mod, but I have the experimental and multiple wikis have a ton of wrong information.

Neck-deep in probably the largest project I've attempted. I'm trying to re-create Building 93 of the abandoned King's Park Psychiatric, which I was recently able to visit.

Hey, does anyone know if the TIF server is still running? Alternatively, does anyone know of a decent public server that a friend and I could hang out on for a few hours on a weekend? She just bought PC minecraft, so I suggested we play together some this weekend.

I don't really. But the mods they've made for the game look pretty good.

 

I got the Custom Steve mod working and you could port like any mmd model to use as your minecraft avatar. I got too frustrated trying to change a value in a dll or something.

 

I don't really want to bother anymore. Mod support has been so bad. I don't know if they've improved it but so many old good mods are inherently broken and impossible to use without reverting to old builds now.

It's been a long time. I used to host a game between me and a few friends, but our interest fizzled out, plus my PC was host so I always had to be available. I've tried some of the other mods, but often bit off more than I could chew and got bored. Besides, what I really want are intelligent(ish) zombies that will assail my base. Of course, I have 7 days to die for that now.

 

I will admit that I've not looked at the mods in a while. My mind is still in the days of Tekkit (classic) and perhaps a year after that (think Yogscast Jaffa Cake factory through Yogscast going to space). I did have fun learning FORTH so that I could use the redpower computer though.

 

EDIT: I did find this. It's a year out of date, but if Thaumcraft looks like this now, I might have to take another stab at that mod, as long as I can have redpower and thaumcraft in the same game. I don't want to go back to the vanilla way of creating a bunch of small vaults under my stuff to house the logic gates and whatnot.
