Anyone know when TPPI2 is coming out?
The only major change I know is they aren't including rear end Crashica in it.

If memory serves me correctly (SOMEONE CORRECT ME BECAUSE I'M PROBABLY WRONG), it was one of flowerchild's followers that made that fancy amazing wrapper that lets forge handle mods that normally wouldn't work with forge and handles a bunch of compatibility issues. Flowerchild called the guy a creativity rapist among other stuff and shut it down and it disappeared.

I'm like 95% sure that only cobblestone is free, because smoothstone requires a source block or smelting in a furnace to create normally, and the consumed resources reflect that. It's a very minimal cost though, like 20 mB.

Cobblestone is free, smoothstone requires a bucket of water, and obsidian requires 1 bucket lava and 1 bucket water.

The only reason I was ever able to build a fusion ring was because someone else on our server had set up a 24/7 automated Enderman farm+trap - all of which required other mods. From memory, something like 1300 pearls were required for the full fusion assembly.

In IC2 breaking a machine with anything not a wrench would make it drop a metal block instead of the tool. I could deal with that, it's fair enough that you have to disassemble a machine with some care.
In Gregtech the machine exploded, but not until it had sent out packets of electricity to fry other cables and machines. Greg even patched this to make it send the packets in increasing size so it would cause as much damage to connected machines and wiring as possible.

What? I hope he at least made that configurable.

What the gently caress? I'm not big on programming but one of the things taught in programming class is HAVING BACKUPS OF OLD VERSIONS. If this guy has been doing that crap for the entire time, he's just waiting for a power outage while saving and the whole thing becoming corrupted and un-recoverable.

Turtlicious posted:

The thing about Gregtech and IC2, is that it was never meant for single player. I mean in it's first iterations when it was fun, yeah it had a SSP focus, because mods weren't used for multiplayer back then, but then people were running SMP servers, and when they all worked together they'd burn through all the "content" in a few days.

The bullshit came with that, the idea was that there would be a single reactor for a "town" or a group of players, not just one. Add on top of that Servers with "donation" shops, where people would donate and then get a reward, greg and IC2 were pushed into being more grindy, that way server owners could drain their people dry.

(With mining /warp access, materials for sale, extra taxes, in game funny money, that sort of thing.)

If the content is "building machines" and not "using machines to build cool poo poo" then I think there is something wrong with that mod. Of course everyone not a zealot or a wanna be cult leader modder knows this.

I just wanted to pop in and say thanks for creating Technic Launcher/Solder. Some of my friends were interested in playing a vanilla-ish mod pack, so I created my own with Thaumcraft 4, Natura and some smaller misc mods.
Setting up Solder and publishing the pack was a breeze (although adding mods one by one took a while).

On that note, couple questions since I haven't played modded Minecraft a lot.
Which TC4 addons are good? We don't have any experience with TC4, so would it be better to just stick with it without addons for now?
Also, would Tinker's Construct fit with the magic-y theme without overlapping with TC4 a lot? All I know about it is that it adds more steps to creating tools, but almost every pack seems to include it.

There are some add-ons that bridge gaps between mods like thaumcraft and tinkers so you can use things like thaumium for your tools.

Tinkers construct is usually used for ore doubling and making BETTER TOOLS AND WEAPONS.
Example: You can make a cleaver that 1 shots everything weaker than an enderman, a logging axe that chops down entire trees, a scythe for reaping mobs or wheat en mass, a hammer that mines out 3x3 areas as fast as a diamond pickaxe and only requires cobblestone to fix.

Simple things that it does better than vanilla minecraft: It lets you put fortune 3 and looting 3 on everything, you can smelt things as you harvest/mine (charcoal from trees), tools are not lost when broken and just have to be repaired, Smelt ores directly into ingots (and smelting stacks with fortune), Add new things to mine... and craft...

Odd things that it does: it adds punji sticks (think spike pits), it adds floating slime islands, it adds baracades (think fences that take more damage), and some other odd things.

Nice things it does: Tinkers tools ARE 100% IMMUNE TO FIRE AND LAVA, tinker tools also take SEVERAL INGAME DAYS TO DE-SPAWN.

Thaumcraft has a bunch of neat concepts it addresses that no other mod does. Pollution, for instance, is something that I can't think of any other mod trying to incorporate. The problem is the pollution has to be interesting. If my options for dealing with flux are:

C) pipe it into a jar and huck it at a cactus

I can't stop laughing at this. If only we could apply this logic to real world problems.

Honestly my biggest problem with TC liquid essentia is that pipes seem to clog and backup no matter what, and no matter how simple I go there's always a problem. Any functionality at all requires lots of closed systems and a lot of manual, active management.
My other problem is that aspects are spread out in such a way that there will always be aspects that to get one of, with any degree of accessibility, I'll need to also deal with like 7 arbor or 2 bestia/1 slime/4 air. This is why people need void jars.

Azanor nerfed pipes so they can only be used for some very very specific cases, alchemy golems > pipes nowdays.

You can remove mods, you simply won't be able to play on the server. You could ask the modpack author for SP configs as well.

On the server i am playing on (Crackpack from AT Launcher) I was just kicked out of the base i was sharing with someone else,

I logged on to find i had no perms in the claim and a sign placed down saying "I dont want thaum in my base, all your thaum stuff is outside to the right in a chest, this is why i don't base with anyone, bye"

So my ender quarry, other machines, ores and stuff and all the stuff i brought to the base is now his (including all the mob spawners and reactor stuff.)
and I have had to start again.

Why are so many people scared of Thaum?

I mean i have since heard that his base was covered in Flux and taint as he broke the Energised Nodes spilling flux everywhere.

As for ars, you have an obelisk next to the altar, then use the magicians staff (or whatever its called) to link the obelisk to the altar, then flip the switch when you need it for the recipe.

One one hand, he kicked you out of your base (depending on the policies of the server and how the mods/admins feel you could get help.), on the other hand, he doesn't know what thaumcraft is and did all that crap without as much as telling you (and his base is now tainted) you are probably better without him.

I thought you were supposed to go to the Nether for tech metals?

The nether isn't supposed to exist and the modpack maker doesn't know how to remove it. Things like wither skulls you are supposed to get though a complicated infusion recipe. Heck, almost everything requires complex and expensive infusion recipes. With the inclusion of Botanica maybe the pylons will make infusions easier and cheaper, or make it much much more expensive because he expects you to be using pylons in mass.

Edit: Hate it when expensive poo poo gets exploded by the infusion alter.

How is Ars Magicka now? They really want it, but as far as I know, it's super buggy... Is this still the case, or is it safe? 1-5 people online, not that spread out, if that matters.

It's still the case, some things like mana batteries if linked in a loop will break the server until ars magica is removed. If you do plan to have ars magica, back up your server once a day.

How far in do I have to get before I can start effing around with Thaumcraft and Blood Magic in the book, anyway?

blood magic will remain locked until you explore a majority of the locations, thaumcraft will remain locked until you have an iron ingot. I made an old post about everything a while ago, let me find it. I can't find it.

You should try for saplings until you get something like blood wood. It's very good for making iron level tools.

I'm setting up a 1.7.10 server with mods for some people and ran into a small problem this morning before I headed off to work. I understand Treecapitator has Thaumcraft compatibility, but when I tried running the two together, the server crashed. Getting rid of Treecapitator and the "bspkrscore" that I got for the mod fixed it. Do these two mods not play nicely anymore? It looked like Thaumcraft's installation unpacks a version of the bspkrscore, too, so that may be a cause. Thanks in advance.

In TC4, golems can be fairly durable. If you had enough of them, it might be possible to make them regen fast enough to stay alive in a mob farm. The design of the mob farm is probably the most important factor. I think it's possible to even set up a way for them to use nothing but their ranged weapon- like, leave a half-slab opening for them to fire through or something.

Also to note, golems can't be harmed by environmental things such as cactus, punji sticks and spikes. They can be harmed by lava or fire unless it's a golem made of bricks.
