I tried to backport to 1.6 and ran in to a lot of problems, mainly with my networking code, since 1.7 has a completely different way of sending information from the client to the server and back. This means I will basically need to rewrite half of my mod to get this backport working, and I really don't feel like doing that. So for now I decided not to backport, and if you want to use liquipacks in your modpack you will just need to wait for the major mods to update. (which BTW should be pretty soon™).
I basically implemented all the features I had in mind when I thought of the mod, so please give suggestions to what you want to see in future versions of liquipack!
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
hey, Thank you for making this mod! It fills an awesome niche. Can you help me with the interface block though? not sure how it works but it seems like something I'd make use of.
As for suggestions... an elite backpack I suppose, if you can find a balanced recipe and it fits your design views?
I clarified the description of the liquipack interface in the recipies section of the OP, tell me if you still don't understand. I decided that I will make she liquipacks modular, so there will be multiple tiers of tanks which you can add to your liquipack in any combination you want. I'll start working on that tomorrow, and it should be done soon.
Published Version 1.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Liquipacks is now officially out of beta! New in this version:
- Liquipacks are now completely modular! See OP for more info.
- Changed recipes! Tell me what you think I should change because I'm pretty sure the're not very well balanced.
- Shift clicking now works in the the tanks inventory.
A few notes:
This update might break saves. Follow the instructions at the top of the OP if you want to update.
Now that the mod is released, should I move the threads to the main mods category? If so, how do I do that?
I'm really out of ideas at this point. If you have an idea, please post it here, it will be greatly appreciated! If you find any bug or crash please post it here too and remember to post the full crash log otherwise I won't know what caused the crash.
How about some kind of hand pump so you don't have to use a bucket at all?
That's kind of what the liquipack bucket already is, so it's basically just renaming it and giving it a different texture, which I will probably do. (Since a bucket that magically teleports liquids into and out of tanks doesn't make much sense)
I know, that was more of an aesthetic "idea"... If you need someone for the textures, gimme a shout
Texture help is always great! As you might notice, I'm not very artistic.
BTW Can you make me a title saying "recipes and information" or just "information" so people can find the documentation easier?
I tried and it looks like it already works with 1.7.2, not much changed between the versions except for minor things which I don't use in my mod. Keep in mind that I am developing and testing in 1.7.10, so it might stop working in the future, but hopefully all major mods will be updated to 1.7.10 by then.
I honestly think this is a really cool mod. I have one suggestion since it is a liquid pack mod try making more liquid's or maybe have a backpack of a messenger bag that hold's liquid exp that way i you die you don't lose almost half of the exp I don't know It be cool to see
More space upgrade: each one adds 1000 mb in both tanks.
You should read the recipe section of the OP, the liquipack is now modular, meaning that you need to install tanks in your liquipack in order to use it. There are 3 tiers of tanks, and they have capacities of 10000mb, 20000mb and 30000mb respectively. So I won't make a space upgrade, but a more tanks upgrade could be cool, currently you can have up to 4 tanks, but with the upgrade you could have more.
Hi everyone! just wanted to let you know i'm still working on the mod, I just was on a holiday and I had terrible internet, so I couldn't really post anything. Anyway, now I'm back, so update coming soon
