    posted a message on Minecraft Multithread / Multicore CPU Support (Will Lead to Huge FPS Boosts)

    I've always wanted to see Minecraft programmed in C, instead of Java, and yes, with much milti-threaded support. SDL2 and OpenGL would be great platforms to program Minecraft in. I wonder just how efficient Minecraft really even is.


    If terrain is generated by an algorithm, and the "surface area" of large lumps or deep layers of materials is less than 1/4 the total volume of blocks by a large amount, memory can be drastically reduced and performance boosted. Why less than 1/4th? Because if you load every individual block, all you need is to load and store the block id's in an exact order, but if you load the surface area of materials, you need a block id, and three values for 3D coordinates for every block.


    This may all ready be the case, but I don't really know. Being programmed in SDL2 would be great though. I support multi-threaded Minecraft.

    That can't possibly last forever. You'd have to buy a new computer every time you wanted to download a new trial version. I'm tempted to fork out $300 for Camtasia just because it works so well and comes with everything I need to make good youtube videos. I was able to make 8 great videos with the 30 day free trial.

    As annoying as that has to be for the developer to see people ask "is it done yet? Is it done yet?" it's nice to see some noise in the forums. School's starting again so it probably won't be for a while, unless they're done with schooling.

    I've had the exact same problems. For those of you who have McAfee, try this link. My friend is in bed now so we won't be able to test it till tomorrow night when he's out of work. Maybe I can test it with my brothers computer.



    If you don't have McAfee, check it out anyway. Just skip the steps that involve McAfee.

    What's the ip address, just ponycraft.net? Ponycraft.net doesn't seem to work as an ip. There's no connection.

    That's about where I'm at. I don't hang out with anypony on there though so I guess that doesn't help. By the way, how do you like my new profile picture? I made it myself on paint.net :D

    Another option is to join a hosted online server I recently found. After hunting all over the internet, I found the server we're all looking for, PonyMC! This server doesn't require minelittlepony, but most, if not all people who play on that server have the client-side mod, and it's like eating cereal without milk. If you like your cereal dry, by all means you are entitled to your tastes. To see everyone else there as a pony, you need the mienlittlepony mod, the milk of the server. I'll give you guys some basic information and important references for this server in case anyone here is interested in joining. They have about fifty spare slots.

    ip: play.ponymc.com

    compatible with: 1.7.2/1.7.4

    About the server: This server comes with it's own pony powers and pony classes mod. It's not nearly as rich as ShetiPhian's, but you still have distinct abilities according to your class (ie. Earth Pony, Pegasus, Unicorn). They have tons of classes to choose from. The official Minecraft version for the server is 1.7.4, but it works perfectly with 1.7.2. This is crucial because 1.7.2 is the latest available version for the mine little pony mod.

    Mod downloads needed:

    lightloader installer for Minecraft 1.7.2 (the exe is much easier to install. Just click on it.) http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods/1290155-liteloader-for-minecraft-1-7-10

    mine little pony mod http://www.minelittlepony.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=668

    awesome websight for pony skins http://ponyskincraft.com/catalog.html

    minecraft.exe (If you haven't all ready updated you vanilla Minecraft launcher to the latest version) https://minecraft.net/download

    Installation instructions for people who have no idea on how to install mods:

    If you get stuck at a step, reply and ask questions. If it's step one-and-a-half and you start to get overwhelmed, just read it through once to see if you can skip it. You don't have to read the explanations, but if your new to modding, it would REALLY help to gain some insight. If you don't understand them at all, they won't hurt to skip. I wanted to make these instructions as effective as possible for beginners.

    1) Download the necessary files from the links I provided and keep them in a folder where you can easily find them.

    1 and 1/2) If you all ready have a "mods" folder in your .minecraft folder, or you've installed a mod loader before that uses a mods folder under the .minecraft file in your appdata, make sure all your jar mods are either compatible with Minecraft 1.7.2, or are not there. Any outdated or indated versions should be saved in a separate folder if you want to keep them. If you've never downloaded a mod in your life and you have no idea what I'm talking about, you probably don't have a mods folder at all. In other words, unless you have a sibling or friend who mods the living daylights out of your Minecraft, skip this step entirely. If you do have a friend/sibling who Mods your minecraft, drag their butts over so they can help you mod your Minecraft. Who knows how much they messed with it.

    2) Run the latest, standard Minecraft launcher.

    3) Click on "Edit Profile" at the bottom left corner of your screen.

    4) In the pop-up window, look for the "Use version" drop down menu and select "release 1.7.2" Then click "save profile"

    5) Hit "PLAY," Let Minecraft boot up, and then close the window.

    explanation) When the launcher loads a specific version of Minecraft (1.7.2 in this case) the launcher creates new files specific for that version. When you install the lightloader afterwards, the installer needs to reference those new files. If you don't run the necessary version of Minecraft at least once, those files will not exist and the installer won't be able to reference them during the installation process.

    6) Find the lightloader.exe mod you installed and double click on it to install it (if you downloaded the lightloader.jar instead, try right clicking on it and opening it with java binary). When the pop up window appears, make sure the "install lightloader (recommended)" option is checked and the "chain with forge" option is NOT checked unless you've modded your Minecraft before and you know what your doing. People who chain lightloader with forge do it to play with other jar mods, but for this server, I wouldn't use forge mods at all. Once you have the right options checked (or NOT checked) click install.

    7) Find the minelittlepony mod you installed and copy it.

    8) For windows 7, Open the start menu and type "%appdata%" in the search bar and hit enter. For me, this lead me directly into the "Roaming" folder where I could find the .minecraft folder, but the folder browser might simply lead you into the "AppData" folder. In that case, click on Roaming, .minecraft, then mods. Once your in the mods folder, copy the minelittlepony mod you installed into that folder.

    explanation) The lightloader will load the minelittlepony mod file by finding it inside the directory "AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\mods" This is how lightloader "modifies" your game.

    9) Before you run Minecraft, you'll need a pony skin. The link I gave for the pony skins is an excellent websight for finding pony skins. Pick your favorite looking pony from that page, and download it into a file where you can find it.

    10) Go to minecraft.net and sign in to your account. Click "profile" at the top of the page, then click on "choose file"

    11) Brows your folders for the pony skin you downloaded, open it, then click "upload."

    12) At last, you are ready to play with the minelittlepony mod, but there's just one more thing we have to do. Run the Minecraft launcher, and click on "edit profile" again like you did in step 3. Find the "Use version" drop down menu and select "release 1.7.2-LightLoader 1.7.2" and click "save profile." If you can't find "release 1.7.2-LightLoader 1.7.2" exactly, just look for something that has "1.7.2" and "lightloader" in the title and select it.

    Now click "PLAY", select a world to test the mod in, cross your fingers, hold your breath and hope to dear God that it works!!!

    The first things you need to know for this server:

    Overview of server rules; https://ponymc.com/forum/topic/1721-avoiding-punishments/ (You'll need to read the rules posted in their signs in-game too).

    Basic commands: https://ponymc.com/forum/topic/2565-ponymc-player-commands/

    Pony power commands and special crafting recipes: (This is the on-tray of the server. It just wouldn't be ponyMC without it). https://ponymc.com/kb/articles/classes

    PonyMC's official websight: https://ponymc.com/



    I hope this helps people. This server is independent (and probably better off without) ShetiPhian and Fruztrated's mods. Plus his mods plain won't work at all with the server until they're updated anyway. Hopefully this will be a temporary fix, or even another option, but hopefully not a replacement, for the pixel powers mod, because the pixel powers mod is just way too awesome to be replaceable; and I'm not just saying that on his behalf. You won't find another mod anywhere in the world quite like this one. Thanks ShetiPhian and Fruztrated! :D

    We could start a simple white list server. Different people from this forum can join. All things considered, I think 1.4.5 would be my favorite version to start a server with.

    That helps a lot. Thanks. 1.4.5 generated the grass and flowers beautifully. I think I've enjoyed 1.4.5 the most thoroughly out of all the versions with the cherry trees and the tellewarp. Still, I want to start having fun with the spell system.

    What all is in the 1.6.4 version of pixel powers? Is the spell system in or is it just the world generation and all else?

    In the 1.4.6 version, does it work better in the 1.4.6 or 1.4.7 jar file? The latest 1.4.6 pixel powers I downloaded didn't seem to generate any grass what-so-ever. Are there cherry trees or apples treas in it? I couldn't ever find cherry trees in 1.4.6 either, or flowers. It was a little gloomy.

    Lastly, does anyone know of any servers for one of these versions of the mod? I found a list if MLP servers but I can't tell what version their for or weather or not their modded servers?

    Yep. In fact, I have a modded 1.4.7 setup right now that actually uses mostly 1.4.6 mods. (To include the latest Pixel Powers beta.)

    Can I join this server? Is it still up?

    Thanks Fruztrated. I figured out a crazy way to do it with the standard launcher. I jumped through all kinds of hoops and loops to make it work. I had to edit .json files, jar files, make new folders, It's a mess. It worked cleanly but it's a mess to work with initially, and an even worse mess to clean up by the time you get over the learning curb.

    Making it work with the standard launcher was a lot of fun for me in the end, granted it meant me not studying for my test, <_< but the main short coming it has is that I can only use one mod pack at a time, or I'd have to juggle files around to use different mods. With MultiMc you simply choose a mod pack you want to use. I didn't understand at all how to use MultiMc until you posted those instructions. I installed it, but I didn't know how to use it. I'll give it another shot. Thanks again Fruzstrated.

    I finally figured out the modding situation. My biggest problem by the end was getting both pixel powers and mine little pony to work together. I got them both to work separately, but there was just no bridge of compatibility between the two. The new mine little pony mods only work with lightloader, and light loader is so updated it can't work with older versions of forge any more.

    The final victory came when I found a mine little pony mod specifically for an older version and threw it all in with the forge jar along with the optifine. It's probably the messiest means of modding this all together but it works. I do wish I new a more graceful way of doing it so I have reassurance that the mods are cooperating, but I don't think forge, mine little pony and optifine should have too much conflicts seeing as they're completely different functionalists.

    The only mod I have in the mods folder that actually gets unloaded with forge is the pixel powers mod itself. Considering the forge mod loader recognizes and lists the optifine mod in spite of cramming it in with the forge jar itself, that's pretty interesting. I wonder If I could just put optifine in the mods folder, if it wasn't in a zip file!


    Edit
    After reviewing the thread more closely, I've just discovered how progressed Pixel powers really is. I started out playing the 1.4.5 version of pixel powers, after finding a 1.4.5 version of mine little pony. After that I discovered the pixel powers wiki and found the 1.4.6 version, which I felt like I might enjoy a hundred times better.

    I read further still, and find out that this guy's made it all the way to one of the biggest Minecraft updates in Minecraft history, 1.6.4, and is all ready on the verge of finishing 1.7.x!

    I downloaded everything I needed for 1.6.4. I want to ask more questions about it but I'll read the forums a little more first because I know you guys talked about it.

    I love that I can finally use the latest Mine Little Pony mod with all it's features and the ponification of the mobs. That's a definite bonus plus. Okay, I'll ask anyway. Do spells officially work on 1.6.4? Do I have spells, or should I just indulge in being a Pegasus?

    I can't. The crash log never shows up. The screen just flashes for a moment as if the lightloader is going to load something but then, after the flash, it goes right back to the launcher.

    I downloaded the latest version of light loader and chained it with this version of forge, then I had the Mine Little Pony mod in the mods file, but when I try to load the "lightloader" profile, the launcher doesn't launch the game, it just goes back to the launcher.
