A detailed writeup/summary of mod drama might also be cool, for those of us who don't QUITE know all the details.

I don't know why I never tried it before, but apparently smelteries can be literally any dimensions, not just 3x3. My mind is racing at the possibilities, up to and including dong smelteries.

I was thinking of whipping up a lightweight modpack to play with my 12-year-old cousin during holiday vacation (thinking ahead, I know). I was thinking Tinkers Construct and Ars Magica might be a good start. Any ideas?

Iron chests or some other big chests mod.
inv tweaks (sort chests button)
Minimap of some kind
NEI (how to make stuff)
Extra-utilities
Gravestone
Nether ores
Enchanting Plus

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Those sound very good for sure, but I was honestly looking more for lightweight, fun things that a 9-year-old (I don't know why I thought he was 12) would enjoy.

Or, I guess, a lightweight adventure-y modpack with magic stuff.

Best bet is one of you having the computer power and bandwidth to spare to host the server for yourself, with max 3 people, that's not much needed.

I don't - that's why I've asked, twice now, how I would do such a thing as to set up a small Blightfall server. What am I meant to be downloading and installing? Blightfall itself? Some server utility? And furthermore, what port do I want to forward?

The server package is: http://servers.technicpack.net/Tech...rver_v2.1.0.zip

All technic packs that have a server download list it in the bottons on the right side of the pack page. You should be able to just extract it tot he folder you want it to run from and run start.bat or start.sh depending on OS.

EDIT: YOu want to forward whatever port it's running on, which is listed in server.properties after server starts.

Thanks! Just out of curiosity, how much worse WOULD Hamachi be? I'm not sure if I'm in a position to fiddle with ports, so it might come to that.

Glory of Arioch posted:

the main problem with hamachi is that it opens your entire computer to the guests on your network, not just one port

it'd be like they were plugged in to your router and with you at home

if you trust the people you're playing with not to try and hack your gibsons then it's fine

also you don't technically have to run a server, with hamachi (or other port forwarding) you can just start minecraft and hit the "OPEN TO LAN" button in the escape menu

however this means your friends can only play when you're playing

Excellent. Do I have to do anything in particular to make Minecraft use Hamachi's little virtual network, or will it just work?

They should be able to just type in your Hamachi IP

I called out Hamachi as bad because unless you want to pay like $25 a month, you're limited to 4 people per VLAN

Well hey, not a problem for me! And just to idiotproof things, that's the IP next to the power button icon in Hamachi, yes?

If you are using Technic, you can click on the modpack options, and then open next to the file path. There should be a folder named Logs. Should be in there. If not there, there might be a file called crash-reports that has what you are looking for.

A fine idea indeed if it were actually crashing, which it is not.

EDIT: The last thing that happened according to latest.log is "Sound Engine Started". Does that tell you anything?
