You're a terrible, awful person because now I want to play Minecraft again.

Any recommendations for good modpacks that have Te4 in it? I just like building stuff.

Discovery: Modderation: Permabanned Minecraft Official Server has TE4, plus other magic (and other) mods, and attempts to stay relatively up-to-date without any world resets (none since Goonception on 2014-08-09).

Well, I stand corrected. I guess my intuition had it backwards. I would assume passive cooling would sink heat that could be used for steam.

I suspect your proportional gain is too large if your PID is oscillating. Edit: Also, don't bank too much on a PID working too well because your load is going to change. So your model is always changing. I'd recommend doing something fuzzier. Alternately, you can get lolmer's EZ-Nuke and be done with it. I will concede it's still fun to tinker with this stuff, but he had taken the extra steps of making cool display support.

Lolmer's EZ-Nuke for those interested, though it currently only works with ComputerCraft (1.58, 1.63+, or 1.73+). I welcome pull requests to add compatibility with OpenComputers which does not remove ComputerCraft support (such as determining if CC or OC is used and then calling an appropriate wrapper API). It's on my TODO list, but I haven't had the time.

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.

Modderation: Permabanned has had Ars Magica for a while now and there are no more issues with it than any other complex mod and there is a new version in the works that fixes most of them. I use Ars Magica quite a bit on my home server of Modderation for my family (1-4 players at a time) and use it some on the Modderation primary server without much issue.

You can check Ars Magica's GitHub Issues page before you attempt something to see if it's fixed in your version.

Does anybody see any reason to actually post an update to Baby's First Space Race? I've been mostly sitting on the big, red button. I just felt I should make sure most of the quests still work. Some of my concerns stem from what I've seen in omp-i since it also took the latest of everything. The Forge loading bug particularly worried me since I'm most likely to have users that will stare at the Mojang loading screen since they're probably coming from vanilla Minecraft.

We've used Forge 1307, 1408, 1420, and 1428 in various releases for Modderation: Permabanned and have not seen this loading bug that others mention, at least that I've heard about or recall, unless using CoFHTweaks; FastCraft seems to continue working fine.

does anyone have any advice or some pictures on how to build your tier 3 blood altar to get the magician's blood orb? How many runes of sacrifice/self-sacrifice would you suggest surrounding it? It's a bit frustrating they made it you can't get to the good runes until you've built that orb first which requires 25k LP when the altar can only hold 10k

I've found the FTB Blood Altar wiki extremely helpful, along with the other wikis (such as for Bound Armor). There is now a Sanguine Scientiem book from Blood Magic, depending on the version of the mod you have and if you have Guide API installed, just craft a Mail Order Catalogue and throw it on the ground, then wait.

tinker's construct is a good mod to add for quality of life but again veinminer when properly configured does what treecapacitor used to. Plus using fast leaf decay with it is also good, instead of busting leaf blocks one at a time, veinminer the trunk down and then the leaves just disappear by themselves.

Baby's first space race has some great tutorials on how to tinkers construct, even though I've been using it since 1.5 I learned some things. For instance, you can use the smeltery to combine water and lava to make obsidian before even getting a single diamond, skip the normal lovely boring way of getting it entirely even in a pack without tech blocks.

Using the Vat from Mariculture is an even better way to make Obsidian from Water + Lava and can be done much earlier game than a Smeltery and with less headaches. It's also easier to get the Obsidian out of the Vat.

So I'm super casual and just got bit by a Minecraft bug recently and pretty much rely on Technic exclusively to play cool Minecraft mods but pretty much everything I care to try except Tekkit is refusing to actually run. I'm mostly looking for a more fantasy/magic leaning pack but Hexxit and Hexxit Revisited are just opening Minecraft, hanging, and closing back down to the launcher.

Make sure that you're giving the modpack sufficient RAM. I believe there's a post earlier in this thread with recommendations, which I believe were, for specific-packs (e.g. Magic) using 2G and kitchen-sink packs using 3G. As wylker mentions, check your crash-reports folder and see what's crashing, most modpacks work out of the box.

Check the Technic Launcher Browse Modpacks section to find a modpack. Both OMP and Modderation: Permabanned stay fairly up-to-date, but are both large modpacks.

Try adding FastCraft to your client mods/ folder if you haven't already, that helps on my modpacks. Otherwise look for leaner modpacks or take an existing one and slim it down, as SugarAddict mentioned.

Not exactly a modding question, but I can't find the general MC thread. I'm looking for a way to have cheats available for more only SOME of the players in a LAN world, rather than the way the settings seem to work at this point which is to have either the host with cheats or everyone with cheats.

Unless you can think of another way to achieve this in an educational setting. Computers are locked down so modding isn't exactly an option. I'm trying to explore ways to easily give some students "superpowers" and others not in order to talk about justice, democracy, religion, and stuff like that. What kind of options do I have in LAN worlds?

Use KCauldron and PermissionsEx to setup a group with access to the /give commands, along with the default permissions everyone else has.

e.g. Permissions Ex - Basic Permissions Setup.

For a simpler option, if you trust those certain users you can just give them Operator (/op PLAYERNAME) as the host (or from a dedicated server, which is easy to setup). If you have a spare computer (or virtual machine) you can use MultiMC to set up a simple hosted server.

I don't understand. You just quoted the changelog and then said we don't have changelogs.

But in general, here's how it works - mods should remain up to date. That's really it. Whatever the most recent release is, that should be the one you use.

The ChangeLog doesn't mention the bug # for easy tracking, but I mentioned the intermediate updates, e.g. 3.03B1-89 to 3.03B2-98 don't tell us what changed. You guys are getting better at ChangeLogs and at least have them for the full revisions (e.g. 3.0.2 -> 3.0.3) now, which is nice.

My ChangeLogs for Modderation: Permabanned often look like this, using files marked as "Release" on CurseForge:

quote:

  • CoFHCore updated from 3.0.3B4-302 to 3.0.3-303.
    • Insert repeated snarky comment about lack of ChangeLogs here.
  • CoFHLib updated from 1.0.3B4-174 to 1.0.3-175.
    • Insert repeated snarky comment about lack of ChangeLogs here.

So what changed? Who knows, it may fix a bug or not, but both CoFHLib 1.03B4-174 and 1.03-175 are (were, the B* named files which were marked as "R" appear removed now) marked as "Release" in CurseForge, but neither have ChangeLogs to know what changed. That's what I was referring to about no ChangeLogs.

Any recommendations for a good lighter modpack? Thinking <100 mods. Me and my friends want to play again but mega packs like resonate rise killed some peoples computers and also the server. A mix between building/exploration would be preferred but I'm not sure how common that is.

Modderation: FYAD has only 54 mods, mostly removing duplicate functionality mods from Modderation: Permabanned. Use the "Latest" version if you want FastCraft included in the client to help with slower machines. The server is at playmodd.moretoast.com:25567 with DynMap available, if you wish to join us.

This uses Alternate Terrain Generation (ATG), so the landscape is fairly nice, and a few mods (such as Ruins and Roguelike Dungeons) to give exploration a little more than vanilla, with Carpenter's Blocks, Chisel 2, and DecoCraft for building, among other mods.

How does anyone play with any given modpack for any length of time? I've been using Direwolf20's FTB pack on the grounds that it must by definition be well-supported, and the recent update to it somehow broke my world such that my framerate goes to single digits if I'm within 100m of my base. I tried rolling back to the previous version of the mod but somehow all of my backups pick up from right after I loaded the world with the new version of the modpack which I don't understand at all how that happened.

This is like the twentieth time some version of this has happened to me -- everything's going along fine, I make the mistake of making a suggested update, and suddenly a couple of months' worth of stuff is lost. I'm the sucker for believing the thing when it told me it was backing stuff up, I guess.

I don't know how FTB or Direwolf do their packs, but mechaet's modpacks (such as Modderation: Permabanned (Discovery thread), Modderation: FYAD, and the NST series such as NST: Diet (Endeavour thread)) have never had a world wipe/incompatible upgrade. The Permabanned server has been running for over a year, while staying current, with no world wipes. As a fairly large modpack, not all computers can keep running it as the world gets larger and more complex, but the server and most clients can handle it.

You might try adding FastCraft and/or OptiFine (which is known to cause some graphical glitches) to your client and see if that brings your upgraded world to more playable levels.

As for backups, it does not keep them indefinitely and depending on the backup tool you're using it may only keep one, overwriting the prior. The one I'm using on my server, ServerTools: Backup lets me define how often to backup (e.g. once a day) and how many to keep (e.g. seven days worth).

That's only true for Windows, but go ahead and say it's so anyways. The short version is that on a 32-bit OS, the userland is limited to addressing 4G of memory space, but the OS (kernel) through PAE (for example) can map up to 64G (should be enough for anyone, right? ) and would allow for splitting the resources into two processes to make use of more memory than a single process otherwise would.

Anybody else that wants to turn it upside-down is free to party with us. I think we're putting the config folder in GitHub for starters. I'm hoping some day I can find a sucker that can host a server version for a week and allow some folks on to edit together a tutorial spawn world.

Sorry I'm a bit late to the posting here; I've been busy.

mechaet and I do this via ModderationConfigs on GitHub, if you want to peruse them (e.g. for the fairly verbose veinminer/tools-and-blocks.json file). Both FYAD and Permabanned use these configs, though there's a separate fyad branch for differing configs (e.g. Project E causes (or caused in the past) issues when defining EMC values for items which don't exist).

Hey Rocko, great job on the Nether for BFSR. My daughters were both crying after their first foray there and said that it scared them (all the explosions as they enter, the land disappearing around them, the portal being blown out). I got a great laugh, perhaps I'm a bad father, but thank you.

Next time we play I'll see if they're willing to head back. I was able to rescue them and bring them home with no deaths; I had to fill in the Nether portal from the Nether side as the explosions had only half put out the portal, so it wouldn't let it be lit while it also no longer worked.

Is there a good quest based pack with a focus on tech? Ideally something like Blightfall but with less focus on magic/exploration and more on building.

Whatever mod it is that adds rockets to the Moon/Mars and space stations would be a plus, that one looked fun but I never played with it.

The oft mentioned Baby's First Space Race by our very own Rocko Bonaparte is probably what you're looking for. You can tone down the oregen if you don't want such abundant ores.

quote:

The idea for this game started to support a little team-based Minecraft game some colleagues and I wanted to play. Most of them had no played Minecraft before. Having tried technical mods with newcomers like that before, I found that people needed considerable guidance to know how things even worked in Minecraft. What to even do when you start a new world is unintuitive. We also ended up constantly starving to death because everybody would get hurt--which would deplete the food reserve--while not knowing anything about replenishing food and farming.

This pack provides some common technical mods, with the Galacticraft moon mission as something of a final goal. It's unlikely an individual will get to a rocket in a single session, but it can be possible in a team game over, say, and afternoon. Its distinguishing features are its quest book and the easing of some grinding mechanics. The quest book is provided without hardcore mode, goes through very basic steps in playing with technical mods, and provides rewards. Grinding is reduced by extremely inflating ore generation, and providing much of the rote construction as part of quest rewards.

Guhhh okay fixing. I don't know how that waddled into there.


I wrote a teleport command that triggers on a command block already. It can figure out what the overworld spawn is supposed to be and use that. That part is under control. The trick is just getting a user-specified overworld.


I don't know if I can package saves with modpack releases, but I'll experiment. At this point, I'm more inclined to just freeze everybody on a common overworld, but I'm not acting yet because I just don't want to put so much effort into something that could potentially be done better.

Edit: I wanted to double-check if that would particularly irritate anybody. One reason I haven't done it is because it would irritate me. One of my things I like to do is perpetually re-do the first two hours or so on new worlds, so freezing the overworld takes a lot of that fun out. Of course, I know enough about the pack to bang it with a hatchet to do what I want locally, but whatever.

Personally I'd prefer a dynamic Overloard so that it is different every play through (new world), but this wouldn't affect me much as I don't often start new worlds unless I'm trying a new modpack or the starting position of this world really sucks.

The Thermal Expansion Cyclic Assembler is fairly popular (requires a Schematic from a Workbench) and the RFTools Crafter (has three tiers) has become a very popular one, often more in favour than the TE Cyclic Assembler for speed, simplicity, and features (it can use one set of output as the input for the next step without external pipes/automation ).
