    posted a message on Flan's Mod 5.5.2 Update : 1.12.2, 100s of new Skins! : Helicopters, Mechas, Planes, Vehicles, 3D Guns, Multiplayer, TDM, CTF

    Hey, been playing around with this mod for the past couple weeks (hadn't used it since like 1.2 before that) and I have to say, the mod is really fantastic! Projectile physics and models are so much better now, and there's a nice variety of weapons to play around with.


    Just a few suggestions/comments I'd like to toss out there, though.


    1. Right now, ADS seems pointless on non-scoped weapons. It doesn't change weapon accuracy and it's easier to aim with Minecraft's built-in crosshair anyways. I'd suggest either removing the crosshair while holding a weapon or giving hipfire more bloom than ADS.
    2. Configurable scoped/ADS sensitivity. PLEASE. As an ex-sniper main who's used to playing on very low sensitivities, the scoped sensitivity feels waaaaay too fast for my tastes.
    3. Shotgun shell recipes only output a single shell, whereas most of the other recipes output an entire magazine worth of ammo. Any way the shell recipes could be increased to, say, 4 shells per craft? Right now using shotguns other than the trench gun is very expensive and inefficient.
    4. The headshot multiplier only seems to apply to players. Can it be extended to other mobs as well or is there a technical reason why that's not possible?

    For me, ADS being pretty much useless is the main reason I prefer flansmod over the alternatives, just as somebody that doesn't like the ADS gameplay. I agree it should be better though. Possibly something for config?


    I agree with everything else.

    Really don't want to complicate things for you, but remember that just because low-power GPUs don't require additional power from the power supply doesn't mean they don't use power at all. They're still usually drawing ~60-75w in the case of gaming cards.


    You'll still likely be fine with anything recommended above, but please consider this. It's always worth a little bit of extra research.

    GTX 970 can handle SEUS, assuming you properly adjusted the shader settings for your hardware configuration. However, it's the loads of other mods you also have that'll kill performance.

    posted a message on Multiple game build under $500?

    - note, these builds do not include the price of Windows 10, a monitor, or an optical drive if you need to install Windows 10 this way.
    - Windows 10 can range in price from $30-100+, but you can get it for less than that if you know where to look or who to ask.


    Build #1 - Recommended

    Well balanced for gaming performance, maximum framerates for the budget, but does not include an SSD. Not sure if that's a big deal to you or not. Should generally serve you well for what you want to do.


    Build #2 - SSD Sacrifice

    Giving up a *significant* chunk of gaming performance in exchange for an SSD. I don't recommend this one, but it's an option if you really need an SSD.


    Build #3 - Ultra-Budget

    By far the cheapest of the bunch. Would still play games relatively well, but when it comes to heavily modded clients and rendering, this one won't hold up as well.

    posted a message on What texture pack is this?

    The inventory is from a youtuber named ImEmma (of course, as it says). The hotbar is a simple default edit, and there's no reasonable way we can determine where it's from considering the unorganized cesspool that is the world of default pvp edits.

    Feel free to check out Sanity, which is my pack. It's 16x, mostly up to date (though the 1.11 version needs work), and is definitely not getting a lot of attention. I have no idea if it's what you're looking for since you didn't give any parameters, but you asked for people to self-advertise and self-advertise I shall. :D


    Let me know what you think and remember to give whichever pack you end up using a link back to their forum thread. Too many Youtubers use packs and then never give any credit. I'm hoping you're better than that. :D


    I vouch for Sanity, it's indeed a very solid pack imo

    The purple lines separating the clumps of dirt also need to be lighter IMO. It will just make the transition between the clumps of dirt smoother. (sorry, I wasn't very clear about this in the last post)


    Sure, I can try that

    I feel that the dark purple in the dirt part could either be lighter or darker. (I would say lighter.) The colour is too close to the dark brown you've used near the purple.


    Think this is better?



    Any other issues?

    Trying something a bit different from what I usually go for, could anyone give feedback on this and/or improve it?

    Probably 30-40

    You could get more than that with a 1060, assuming you're not using crazy maxed out settings.

    posted a message on Looking for desktop computer!
    Quote from Cool_Wave»

    I know custom building would be a lot cheaper but I don't care about how much it costs. Waiting for the parts to arrive, learning how to build it, and spending days putting it together seems like a waste of time, and I can't "return" it if it isn't good enough for me. Also, that computer is pretty much 100000000x better than my current one.



    You should really do more research on custom PC building before automatically assuming how it works.

    "days putting it together" is extremely false. For most people it'll take between 30 minutes and 3 hours.


    Building a PC is extremely easy. It's designed to be easy and intuitive. If you feel it's a daunting task (it isn't) then that's perfectly understandable, but you don't have to try and come up with reasons to avoid it.

    Yes, thanks a lot for the new update. Volumetric lighting was the only feature this shader was missing, now it has it. Definitely my new favorite, it looks great.

    So sorry for the bother, but I wanted to know whether you would recommend this shader for my computer.


    Processor: Intel Core i5-4210U @ 1.70GHz 2.40 GHz

    RAM: 8 GB

    System Type: 64-bit Operating system, x64-based processor


    If you need different specs let me know, I'm not sure how this works.


    Which GPU?

    posted a message on Clueless on what pc system to buy my grandson so he can play this game and use many mods!!

    With a budget like that you're better off grabbing a desktop and putting a low-power graphics card in there, like an RX 460 or GTX 1050.

    Do your research though, mainly on the power supply but also on the processor, motherboard, and case.


    There's a somewhat common and somewhat dangerous misconception I see on a lot of support forums. Just because a graphics card doesn't require additional 6-pin power doesn't mean it doesn't use power at all. You can still blow up a cheap OEM power supply with a 1050(Ti).
