On the one hand, that sounds terrible. On the other, if it was some kind of Tiberium/Corruption hybrid super-plant that slowly choked the surface as a consequence of the player's bullshit, that can be combated in various ways (Mostly fire), that would be so very cool.

Someone on the last Progress server did a lot of testing, turns out the best bow material (short or crossbow, and well longbow but those are just unweildy to use) is, of course, slime. pink > blue > green >> all metals for the parts that take metal/slime. Ludicrous damage, rapid reload rate. Obviously the ammunition should be manyllium or some expensive/absurd metal like that, coated in moss and all the nether quartz you can stuff on it, but the bow/crossbow should be slime.

Does this mean the strings and stuff too or is that still fire string or enchanted fabric or something as best?

Since I'm pretty sure Slime String doesn't exist, you just do whatever. Natura's Flamestring will give it +attack and -fire rate (takes longer to draw). No clue you could use enchanted fabric to make TiC strings.

We had a great time with the mod. But I'm not really sure how tool progression works.

Is there any specific mod I could check out to understand how the tools and tiers work? Or is it custom for this pack?

Like, I can make stone and flint pick axes and then the next tier is obsidian?

Iguana says you need to use a smeltery, but I could use a normal furnace to smelt copper and stuff, so it's tweaked?

Pneumaticraft has seeds that plant by throwing them into the world and keying then take a hold that way. Certain plants can grow on grass and they all have specific ways of propagating. It's usually an annoying way too. Anyways when you break them if you don't catch them they can replant. Though I think these days they wait a couple seconds before replanting.

It sort of makes sense, if you assume slime to be highly elastic and flexible. You want the bow/string to be able to stretch as far as possible, while snapping rather violently back to their original shapes once you stop pulling.

That part makes sense, but for some reason the math is set up so making even the body of a crossbow out of a rigid metal punishes you.

I'm honestly not sure how it works because I found a treasure chest with a thaumium pick in it pretty early and bypassed a lot of it

My advice is that you can use mob heads on tools to upgrade their mining level. I think you're supposed to start with flint stuff and either level it up via use or skulls until copper maybe and then get into iron / steel / whatever else above that as usual.

Yeah, the stuff I found was vanilla tool, which are disabled in this pack.

I think I realized that I need to use a smelter, not for the ingots, but the tool parts themselves, going to try that.



Right now I'm having major problems moving my single player world to the server.

Moving the save for the world and renaming the folder world makes the server actually run it. The problem is that some mods are apparently missing. Like all the tinkers construct items will be gone, and trying to craft them will be impossible even though the result shows up in the crafting space. The log is full of "Skipping Entity with id"

Guessing I need to move some folders from outside the save folder, but not sure which.

The thing with tools is Iguana tweaks
You can just turn it off by editing the configs.
The tools you can make generally start as poo poo but "level up" when you use them, which gives them new aspects and possibly slots to modify them and in the case of picks raises mining level.

I have a flint pickaxe that can mine ARDITE now, and it levelled up that high just getting materials for my first base and first few machines. But generally building a smeltery's the way to go for things.

Everything seems to work fine except that all the tinker items are gone and I can't craft them.

Is there a .bat I should use to load the mods properly?

The only thing that sucks is that I can't figure out any other way to make the glass, and thus am also cut off from the chisel variants. Oh well.

Also I just put a pink slime crossbow limb on my crossbow and wow, it loving owns. 0.25 second reload

Anyone know the min/max strats for crossbow bolts then? Here's what I have right now, they're pretty good but stuff still isn't dying in one hit consistently (although the 0.25 reload is making that a bit of a non-issue)



the crossbow is I believe all manyullyn except the pink slime limb and regular string. The bolts are manyullyn core, and I think slimeleaf fletching. I'm thinking now that they are leveled up to max I should load up all the +modifier addons and fill them with quartz and lapis?

I'm waiting on the new OMP and still have to check out Modderation, but as far as having everything, I've been trying out the 1.7.10 pack and having a pretty good time with that. I think people earlier said that Buildcraft and Industrialcraft, which are both in it, are bad, but I don't know the details of that and they've been fine so far.

Botania's Vinculotus flower is pretty great for them too, whenever an enderman within a large radius teleports, the Vinculotus forces them to teleport to the flower. You might not be able to hit them with your crossbow, but you can still shoot them and force them to teleport into whatever nightmarish Enderman Hell you've constructed.

If the pack you're in has Xeno's Reliquary, make a hunter's handgun for endermen. They, like all things, cannot outsmart boolet.

It looks like it's a successor (or spiritual successor anyway) to a mod I played once called DivineRPG. It had a lot of balance issues, and it seemed barely finished in a lot of places. One big thing was the dimensions/enemies were set up in such a way that any equipment not from that mod got obsolete real fast, so don't expect it to play nice with others. That said, if you're looking for weird dimensions and a boatload of enemies and weapons you could probably do worse. I'd say give it a shot, at least.

A quick test says no, I murdered four in a row without a teleport. Took about 2 seconds focused fire per enderman.

Disclaimer: my wand focus is Potency 5, so it didn't give them much time to escape.

I managed to get them set up with the Technic launcher because all they've played so far is some repulsive collection of pay to win public servers with vanilla. After they got their bearings, the absolutely ridiculous ore gen rates has them running around like coked up puppies screaming their heads off. It's so bad that they are actually flipping out and doing cartwheels on the floor in excitement every time they discover something new.

After they settled down I spent a few hours teaching them Tinkers Construct and they're really taking to it. Great modpack Gave up trying to make them follow the quest book though.

Started a server for me and my 10 year old half-brother with FTB infinity. At first he wasn't really getting into the new items. Until I showed him my automated Steve's cart tree farm-coke oven-macerator setup. Also helped that we found a portal gun in the first chest.

Love the NEI, when he gets whiny asking me to do stuff for him because it's "too hard" I know he can see exactly how to do stuff and is just a lazy curled single child.

Yeah, he loves to skype and play minecraft with big brother. But gently caress the servers he plays on. The worst loving retarded 6 year old swedes you can imagine. Pay to be unbanned and I got a 30 min ban from the server for saying the swedish equivalent of "drat" in a private massage.
