It is my conclusion that the Koi mod has a serious problem.
After playing this mod in single player for a while, the game will experience long periods of disconnect between the internal server and the internal client. Broken blocks will continually reappear, nothing can be picked up, etc. This goes on continuously for several minutes before the game straightens it out. It may take several hours of gameplay before it happens again, but it eventually does.
Minecraft 1.7.2, Forge 1147, Koi 1.11.0
It took me a huge amount of diagnostic time to isolate the Koi mod as the source of this problem. I had been playing SSP for weeks with about 25 mods and the above issue kept popping up. I was forever swapping mods in and out trying to find one that was primarily responsible. The Koi mod is so small and simple, I really figured it couldn't be the one. But eventually I got down to where if I played just the Koi mod and no other mods the problem remained. And if I removed only the Koi mod and played the other 24 mods, the problem completely vanished.
When the disconnect problem is actually occurring, the game can be saved and reloaded and the problem remains. The only action that will force the problem to end is to quit to launcher, remove the Koi mod and reload the saved game. Because the problem is persistent in a save game file, I might be able to upload a saved game with the problem in progress.

Now this would be tragic. The 1.8 armor stands are implemented as entities, just like the infamous item frames. So they create a huge amount of lag for a block. The Bibleocraft armor stands were probably implemented as regular blocks, so no lag.
Aug 20, 2014When you wrote, "I had to beg them to unban me." Frankly they really don't sound like your friends. Friends have at least some level of respect for each other. What you described looks like what mean people do to someone that hangs around them all the time but they really don't have an interest in being friends with.Posted in: Discussion
I'll bet if you stop trying to be around these 'friends', they won't miss you. I think you deserve better.
May 6, 2014JuniperMelody posted a message on Glenn's Gases - Cool guys don't look at Gas Explosions 1.6.6I've now spent days playing this mod in a serious survival game, and my views have changed somewhat.Posted in: Minecraft Mods
When you play this mod in survival, you literally spend about 90% of your time managing gas collection. Which isn't such a bad thing, it's quite a lot of fun. The problem is, and this is the big one, after collecting tanks and tanks of gas, you realize you really don't have a use for it. There's the furnace of course, but the only thing it does that I couldn't do before is the 64coal-->1diamond thing. But really, if I had a dozen stacks of coal saved up I wouldn't trade it all for 12 diamonds.
Collecting gas is such an enormous investment, it needs to be an essential part of the game's resource chain.
* I basically propose that diamond ore generation be turned off, and a way invented to convert (for example) Nitrous Gas into diamonds. Something like a "high pressure deposition oven" which turns 1 full tank of Nitrous Gas into about 6 diamonds. But the oven doesn't run on Nitrous Gas, it only runs on Red Gas. (or maybe Green Gas)
* The second use for the Red/Green Gas should be to automatically run Gas Lamps. Any Gas Lamp adjacent to a pipe segment containing Red/Green gas, should automatically replenish it's bottle from the gas in the pipe segment. This way you can set up Gas Lamps in your home/base with a gas pipe network, and enjoy the whiter light compared to torches at the expense of slowly consuming your gas supply. (Implemented in 1.5, you're welcome Glenn)
* There needs to be a "valve" block or pipe segment with valve so we can turn the gas lamps in our base on and off together.
* I used to think the gas pockets should be bigger and farther apart. Mostly this was because there was no use for the gas so it should be less trouble. I think keeping the current pocket size and making the gas become the source of diamonds makes more sense.
* All the gas components are still just too expensive for the current gas pocket size. I can't get any iron saved up because it all goes into piping. 24 gas pipes should be 1 iron and 2 cobblestone. I know, pipes aren't made of stone but neither are swords and those work really well in terms of resource balance for the early game. /// Either that or make it possible to pick up and place a tank block without it magically losing all it's gas. Then gas collection would be a localized affair and you'd pick up everything and move it to the next pocket so you wouldn't need a full piping network.
* Moving that collector around to mop up the last gas from pocket after pocket is really just too much. Would it be possible for the collector block to pull in gas from two blocks away instead of just one? That would cut the final workload almost in half.
* One thing this mod sorely needs is more Glenn. The author hasn't even posted on here in over a month, and it's been over two months since the last release.
* The piping segments need to have "viewing windows" in them so you can see what kind of gas is in each segment. It's a good mechanic that the plumbing gets plugged up when different kinds of gasses get in the wrong pipes, but not fun that you can't tell what or where the problem is. The fun is in managing the build, not in working blind.
* Likewise, the pumps and collectors need to have some way to see or query what gasses they are programmed for. The in-game sampling tube thing is great, but you can never tell what you have built because you can't verify the gas programming. Again, working blind. Either the pumps/collectors need an interface window so you can query them, or they could have lights on the textures to indicate status.
* I love the gas furnace properties, I was thinking the furnace needs something to indicate how hot it currently is. Maybe the light-up grill on the front could change from black to yellow to orange to red to white. (Implemented in 1.5, you're welcome Glenn)
* It would be fun if some of the ores (mostly thinking modded ores) could only be smelted in the gas furnace. The M-Ore mod has a lot of great ores but not much to differentiate them. Seems like a perfect match. Sapphire and Ruby sound very hard to smelt.
* +1 for gasmask idea.
Thanks everyone for reading.

That is not a valid analogy. Looking at someone's work isn't stealing, just like how looking at Minecraft on YouTube isn't stealing. However taking the painting without the owner's permission is considered stealing, and it should be considered the same for Minecraft. You can obviously watch someone play Minecraft or "see Minecraft" without pirating.
I would say it's your comparison that is incorrect. Reading a book is consuming it's content for your own usage. Playing Minecraft is consuming it's content for your own usage. If I watch you play Minecraft, that's akin to me watching you read Gone with the Wind. I didn't get to consume it, I just watched you consume it.
If I borrow your copy of Gone with the Wind and read it, did I steal? What if you rent me Gone with the Wind and I read it? What if you read it to me? What if you read it to the patrons in your Pizza place? What if you read it and I write it down? There's always a huge range of grey area.
You've said that looking at someone's work isn't stealing. When you looked at my painting, you didn't pay to see it in my gallery. So you robbed me of that potential income. That makes your actions thievery.
You can spin any of it either way. There's no real right or wrong here, there's just opinion and arbitrary current law that changes with time, place and social whims.
Aug 17, 2014Analogy:Posted in: Discussion
I make a painting in my kitchen. You look at it through the window without paying me. Did you steal anything?
When you play a cracked game, you haven't usurped all the legal rights to it, so it's not like you really stole it. I was going to charge people to see my painting, but you stole the view and denied me of income. Cracked games are the same, they weren't really selling the game, just selling a look it at.
If you read a book or look at a painting, you are consuming the content for your own usage. If you play Minecraft, you are consuming the content for your own usage.
People make out like piracy is so cut and dried, but that's just the government talking. If I rent out my Minecraft account would you call that stealing? And yet I can buy a copy of Star Wars and rent that out all I like. The deference between them has nothing to do with morality or right and wrong, just arbitrary boundaries that change with time and social whims.
Aug 3, 2014I can't believe how rude so many of the replies are in this thread. You've got Benjamin, Knochenbow, & EmeraldCreeper all who specifically roll out the word 'whining', which is just a passive-aggressive way of calling someone a baby. So it's really just name-calling. Then you have Sparkle124 above me doing the same thing with the word 'arguing'. Which is of course a simple synonym for discussion that you use when you don't like what someone is saying.Posted in: Future Updates
Someone should be able to state an opinion without having to be attacked by so many people. If you don't agree with their opinion you should go post your own opinion in a new thread instead of replying just to attack their person.

With regards to the rule we've just discussed this internally and made some changes, the rules now reads:
The way you have it written, one level of indirection is okay but two levels are not okay?
To repeat that more clearly, it's okay for the mod to link to a page containing the download link, but it's not okay to link to a page that links to another page that contains the download link?
Is this exactly what you are intending?

Mapping and Modding Rules
- Download links to third party websites are acceptable if the third party website is a file sharing service (eg. MediaFire, Dropbox)
I've seen several mods posted that very clearly violate this rule. Instead of a direct link to their mod, they post a link to their personal website. On that website is a list of their mods, one of which is the one you came for. That usually leads to another specific page about the mod, which then contains the direct link to the download. Clearly their personal modding website does not qualify as an established "file sharing service".
I filed a report once about a mod that did this, but nothing happened so I assume it's unwritten forum policy that this rule can be ignored. Either that or I am misunderstanding this rule.
I submit that the rule should either be stricken from the rule book or it should be enforced. Having unenforced rules is unfair to people who are not inclined to break rules in general.

Aug 21, 2014There is a special mob only found in the jungle. There are multiple special mobs only found in the ocean (as of 1.8). But there's no special mob in the savanna biome. This idea adds the ultimate farm animal to Minecraft. However, you can only find it In savanna biomes rarely. Introducing the ostrich. Note that all these ostrich drops are what ostriches are farmed for in real life except the ostrich neck.Posted in: Suggestions
Rarely when exploring the savannas, you may find a small group of ostriches. You'll probably want to bring them to your base so you can start a farm. Ostriches have really good drops. They drop raw ostrich (cooked ostrich if on fire), feathers, and leather. They rarely drop an ostrich neck. You can brew an ostrich neck into an awkward potion to create a potion of reaching. This lets you have a 2 block longer reach. If it is level 2, you have a 3 block longer reach than normal. To try and keep this balanced, they cannot lay eggs like chickens can. They instead must be bred with a very rare crop. This crop can only be found uncommonly in blacksmith chests. This crop is corn. Corn heals 4 half hunger (2 full hunger) and has almost the same saturation as steak. Raw ostrich heals as much hunger as raw chicken and has the same chance to give the hunger effect, but it also has the same saturation as raw beef. Cooked ostrich heals as much hunger as cooked chicken and has the same saturation as steak. When attacked, ostriches will attack back doing 1 heart of damage to a player with no armor on all difficulties. Ostriches run away like a normal farm animal except a bit faster when on 6 health (3 hearts) and below. Ostriches have 20 health (10 hearts).
Feedback is appreciated.

If he has a few real-life friends that you can trust to not act like jerks, and can play well together with him, then I'd suggest setting up a server for him that is white-listed to only allow the people you want to be able to join.
Jul 27, 2014Minecraft is a sandbox game, right? So why does Mojang insist on breaking everything?!?!Posted in: Future Updates
-Redstone Obsidian Generators - Broken. Lava no longer converts redstone to obsidian. WTH?
-Above the Nether Gold Farms - I spent hours making my gold farm and now nothing spawns above the Nether. Why? What's the harm? It WAS one of my favorite builds!
-Iron farms - Broken. Again, Why?
Before someone says, its not supposed to work that way... Why? Its a SANDBOX game (or WAS a sandbox game). If I want one of those farms, Why the heck would Mojang care. Or YOU for that matter.
I lost some EPIC builds and I got Bunnies and Banners in return. Gee... Thanks.

Im just wondering why the heck this is a good idea it is gonna lower the mc players by about 70%
And what statistical data is behind this claim? I'll take a wild guess and say you pulled it from thin air. The same goes for pretty much everyone else, we have 'no' idea how this will impact the community in the long run, if it will have any impact at all. All these outcries of doomsday are no less hysterical than the weekly end of the worlds. And if the community ends up suffering casualties it will most likely be at its own hands, by people who chicken out and pack up their bags without even trying to adapt.
I just want Mojang to finish all the paperwork and get 1.7.10 out already so we can stop speculating & running in circles and start adapting (or giving up, whichever you prefer).

Apr 25, 2014Since nobody seems to really be talking about anything but the new terrain generation:Posted in: Minecraft News
Stone and brick half-slabs no longer have a unique side texture when they're stacked on top of each other to form a full block. Instead, the sides share the same texture as the top of the slabs, which is kind of ugly in my opinion. I don't know if this was an intentional change or simply a side effect of another change, but it would be nice if they could revert it and maybe add a crafting recipe for full-block half slabs instead.
The minecart physics reverted back to the way they were before the previous snapshot. It is pretty jarring seeing how slow they are now, but it is a thousand times over worth not having them derail on corners or randomly grind to a halt when going up hills. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this!
And finally, the texture for redstone dust placed in a line has rotated 90 degrees. Any non-vanilla texture pack now shows redstone dust in a line or going up blocks as sideways. This isn't listed anywhere in the changelogs on the wiki, so I thought it was worth pointing out.
Apr 25, 2014Posted in: Minecraft NewsQuote from JuniperMelody
Meh. While the new terrain generation is certainly cool, it doesn't really contribute much to a serious game of survival. Nothing new to build or collect.
You don't always have to rely on vanilla to give you an experience. There are mods and servers that use plugins that can spice up your game

Jan 20, 2014Farming is farming. People don't have a problem with wheat farming or tree farming, but they do with iron farming. The only difference is that an iron farm is difficult to build. Don't lie to yourself: if you could build a difficult farm, you would.Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots
If you're the sort that prefers grinding to farming, that's a different story; however, if you're a grinder, don't be so short-sighted as to think it's a good idea to limit possibilities in a sandbox game. We don't love Minecraft because of the limited graphics or the minimalist PvP mechanics. The reason Minecraft has the following it enjoys now is because it is a sandbox game--each update should increase, rather than decrease, the dynamic way you can interact with the cubes that make up your Minecraft world.
