How do we download the mod textures for Redpower and others like that? Are they just ideas that haven't been made yet? I'd really like to have a post apocalyptic tekkit series. Maybe we could have a brainstorm topic about what each stuff in tekkit could be? I dunno, just wanted to help out. -shrug-
i have added the OP to the Git-hub page you can get it to edit here... https://github.com/sukar42/LAST_DAYS ...by installing the Git hub client. first make a fork by clicking "fork" while loged in. then go to your fork and click "clone in desktop" then open the client switch the branch to "Last_Days_Community_Thread_OPs " right click the "Last_Days" on the left side of the client then click "open in Explorer" then open "LAST_DAYS_Lore_Thread_OP_BB_Code" with an text editor "Notepad ++" may work out better. when you are complete save your changes then on the Git hub client, you need to commit the changes name it, tell what has changed in the description. Then sync your fork.....go to you fork page and open the branch you made changes too then on the right side click on pull request.
May I make a suggestion for a mod lore, Applied Energistics: To control their robots, rockets, and WMD's , OI would have to develop advanced computers, because what will control your machine, a soul-like energy ball, but back to the topic, with the amazing advances to control bots like huggatrons, they had discovered an interesting side application; Storing matter in the form of energy, research was done, and the Matastorage MK.1 computer was built. Further research allowed more advanced storage, and, eventually hard-drives that with the Spacastorage parts, would allow OI to put their massive vaults of money into cyberspace. After the event, the original computers fell into disrepair, all that's left is the silicon (certus quartz) parts, with some other research from blackwater, it is now possible to replicate OI computers.
This is the lore I made up for the 1.7 biomes. Note as I am not the one in charge of this thread and thus not related to the people making the resource pack, these are non canon.
Wastelands(Mesa, Mesa Bryce, Mesa Plateau, Mesa Plateau M)
These areas used to be giant cities with buildings everywhere. But after the event, the buildings were destroyed and various furniture were scattered. The result is large mountains of junk and debris.
Radio Antenna Fields(Savanna, Savanna M)
Unlike the large antenna facilities used to generate power, these large fields were used to transmit radio waves to far away areas.Of course, after the event, the sattelites were knocked down, making these antennas useless. Now, The Masked has moved in to these areas as the large flat areas has made it suitable for small scrap shack villages.
Scrap Shack City(Roofed Forest)
These areas were used by The Lost to make huge cities of Scrap Shacks using an upgraded version of the Scrap in the box. But scrap shacks don't really protect people from radiation now, do they? Not only that, huge metallic mushrooms also grow due to the large amount of metal found in the soil.
Spruce Forests(Mega Taiga, Mega Spruce Taiga)
When the event happened, it started huge forest fires that seem to go on forever. One might assume that this left the area uninhabitable. Instead, the fire made the ground more fertile,not only allowing trees to grow in abundance, but also allowing to grow extremely tall!
Solar Energy Collection Fields(Sunflower Plains)
When fission and fusion materials became scarce, O.I set out to find alternative energies this part is actually canon. One of the few alternative energies were solar energy. O.I set up S.E.C (Solar Energy Collector) at certain areas to collect this type of energy. Alas, this type of energy has been proven to be ineffective as the energy collected wasn't enough to power an entire nation. The project was abandoned soon after in favor of the large antenna facilities.
Is any work being done on the Lore for the 1.8 update? I was thinking the Ocean Monuments could be a flooded underwater research facility, and the Guardians would be similar to the Hall Monitors, but ocean versions that emit an electric shock.
I registered just so I could post on the Last Days threads! :3
I had a thought a while ago about some lore for the mega amoeba. It could be the result of a nano-bot project run by O.I. to enter a patient's body and literally take out any cancerous cells, mutations (that one depends on when O.I. started the project), or viruses. However, they decided to start producing them on a larger scale, before gradually shrinking the design. They still have all of the properties they would have when the project was completed, ie. combining to form larger robots, separating when destroyed, and trying to get into a human. And that kinda hurts.
