What are my options for getting rid of liquids in OMP-i? I used to use void pipes on ender quarries with the pump attachment so I could get rid of all the unneeded water, but OMP-i doesn't have those. Any equivalent?

Thermal expansion has a Nullifier that you can pump either items or liquids into to void them.

Looks like it's under active development to me? I was watching a recent Forgecraft2 episode, and the developer was on voice talking about his plans and how much work he's put into getting the basic features rock-solid.

It's been "under development" for like 2+ years, and he constantly talks about features and new crazy things, and then never does them. He never actually makes progress, just talks a lot.

This sounds exactly like EE3 as explained in a recent direwolf20 mod spotlight. How is it different?
I haven't played EE3 in a long time but the last time I did, and for like a year before that, it was basically just the philosopher's stone with a handful of transmutations (iron to diamonds, e.g.) and nothing else. I included it in Sky Den back in the day because it wasn't able to turn anything into anything, just work with metals.

Okay, next question. I have my ender quarry with pump upgrade feeding water via tesseract to a nullifier. I'm all ready to pump the water out of the ocean patch I want to build in. Problem is that the water keeps filling back in. Is there any way to get the water to stay gone? I know the ender-thermic pump should replace it with stone, but I don't know how to restrict the pump to just the patch I want to clear out.

Surprising that somehow worldgen is STILL broken in BoP with the endless oceans. You can fix it with simple config tweaks so I can't understand why it doesn't come with the tweaks already having been performed.

I'm tempted to remove all the stock recipes and go through and write my own, simpler recipes for every item in the mod, but then I think, that's silly, why go to so much effort for something you don't like because it's too much effort.

I couldn't stop thinking about this, so I did it. Here's my first pass at a set of custom recipes for AE2. I got rid of the inscriber, the grinder, and certus quartz entirely while keeping the quantity of materials required for everything almost the same. I still have a little work to do -- it's not possible to craft Quantum Entangled Singularities without another mod (EnderIO) that adds Ender Dust, and I still think some of the recipes could be simplified further, but I'm already pretty happy with how it turned out.

AE2 removes redundant materials by itself, so if you don't have EnderIO, AE2 end dust will magically appear.

Right, but there would be no way to create it with the grinder removed. Easily fixed with another custom recipe; was just pointing it out as something I'd forgotten to handle.

Pretty easy answer then, it's 1.7.10 and Cauldron. Unless you want no Bukkit plugins and absolutely poo poo TPS you can't remove Cauldron, and well, 1.7.10.

Goddamn this version has lasted way too long.

Not a problem we experience on our AgSkies2 server or on Modderation Official. I suspect the modpack may be at fault here.

We were getting similar issues regardless of cauldron, forge or mods. Seemed to be entirely related to the number of players and entities (have 10 or so players in a given area and spawn 15 or so zombies and players start to drop like flies), but I've touched on this before.


So I got a question, where would you guys think I'd be best off asking if someone would be interested in developing a 1 .8 mod under commission? I got a list of requirements I'm working on (mostly ore gen and custom crafting interfaces and recipes that overwrite vannila recipes) that I'd be providing textures and models for. I might have someone willing to do it, but if that falls through, I'd like to know my options.

Is chat formatting plugins not fully working in Cauldron in 1.7.10 just A Thing? Chat names aren't being formatted on my server with their prefixes and suffixes, but announcements (like 'so-and-so is AFK') use the formatting correctly.

Essentials Chat, ChatEx, and Towny chat all do this. I have no idea what the problem is. Is there a chat plugin that's known to work with Cauldron?

Hi, so a couple weeks ago I made a thing that fixed a pretty bad bug in HQM. We found another one, where someone joining your team when you have a repeatable quest on cooldown and they have that same quest ready to claim will sometimes get the quest stuck so it never comes off cooldown. I updated the thing so it fixes both bugs.

Nothing that has been done strikes really what I want to do mainly because the mod is tailored for the server I moderate and do texture work for. During 1.7 I was using the CustomStuff2 mod to write a javascript plugin that essentially did what I want to do, but in a limited fashion. CS2 isn't updated to 1.8 and I'd rather things be done properly than my hacky workaround. I'm currently working with another of our moderators on a mod for the server that simply just adds like 120 additional decorative blocks, and while he knows what he is doing I don't know if he wants to tackle this project.

Last I heard, mechaet was refraining from updating AgSkies on Technic Platform as JadedCat doesn't care that any further updates wipe your HQM progress. If there's something you need from the updates (e.g. a bug fix), feel free to state so and that might increase interest in an update.

I work full-time for technic. We make the platform and launcher but we also release official packs. We're working on officializing blightfall and this new version is gonna be absolutely killer. Probably the best thing we've released. We're not going to let a little thing like the lynchpin mod being an unmaintainable dumpster fire get in our way.

I thought that was just about the server? I mean, you can specify a specific version of the pack to play in that case.

It's hazy, because it's going to be accompanied with hype, have a ton of new features, etc. I'm really serious about getting it out by the end of June. Talonos is killing himself clearing out a ton of bugs and I've got a couple tasks left for it but new stuff pops up every day as he realizes one of his bugs isn't really HIS bugs, so I step in to ASM something. The new version is going to have a lot of cool stuff, like an end-game taint-cleansing machine, a real end to the game that feels awfully satisfying and is probably the most satisfying ending of any "story" minecraft ANYTHING I've seen, a brand new botania questline with some custom junk I contributed, a WAY better food integration with a new hunger overhaul falloff curve, new foods, and golem compatibility for HO wheat/barley, some map improvements like making taint not ruin deserts, better ITT compatibility, fixed extraTiC bow stats, totems of dawn catch up to where they should be when they reload after being unloaded for awhile, a brand new death punishment system that drops your mission outlook rep instead of using HQM's life system, and on and on and on.

The game is definitely in a really good spot to play right now, as long as you're cool with JUST having a great thaumcraft & blood magic quest lines. If you don't want to wait, you shouldn't. But if you're interested in playing it through all the way to the end, and ESPECIALLY if you want to play with friends, I'd consider waiting until the official release, it's just too good. On the other hand, if you're the kind of person who played ag skies a couple times or whatever, the different starting locations adds some replayability to the pack, so that + the new stuff might make you want to play it twice. I'm not real big on replaying packs myself, though, so I wouldn't.

I tried out the FTB Departed modpack because I felt like playing a freeform adventurey type modpack, and I was interested in all those dimensions Advent of Ascension has. AA turns out... not to be a terribly fun mod. The modpack starts you out with a book that warns you to avoid certain biomes and get a weapon and some armor asap, talking about how best to set up a base so that mobs don't spawn in it. I was like "ok well let's see how this goes". Mobs sure do spawn in daylight, but they aren't super OP or anything in the Forest biome I was in, and they at least look like they belong in minecraft... that was until I ran into a high-hp mob that kept dropping lit TNT. Which spawned during the day. Also there are these aggravatingly loud sound effects for things as common as getting bonus drops from mining blocks, or night falling, or getting random essence drops or something from breaking plants.
