    [**** NEW RELEASE ****]

    -Changed the way golems (both iron & snow) are created. They are built the same way as before, but now require a Soul Urn to be smashed against the pumpkin/jack o'lantern in order to bring them to life. I also threw in a few particle effects and sounds into the process to make it a little more interesting and less sterile. Note that this also provides a means of automating golem production should you be so inclined.


    sounds like something that could go REALLY wrong if you miss :P

    Well that's legitimately disappointing. Guess I need to find another mod that allows you to make a block dispenser.Thanks.

    Or you could just, y'know, work with the mod's hopper and block dispenser?

    great mod, but the water kinda bugs me cus it's hard to move around,

    Thats the point of hardcore buckets.
    Quote from AllenWL

    and the pumps aren't very nice-looking

    thats what texturepacks are for.

    Quote from AllenWL

    I think the water physics could be improved with more than just no source-block placing.
    something like the FiniteLiquid mod's water physics could be a good addition to the mod
    of course, as the maker of this mod. you have every right to ignore this idea if you think it's bad

    Way too complex for way too little gameplay. Also, very little fun to be gained.

    I hope you'll still have a great time.

    I'd love to try and add mutton. I just don't know how to make a sheep drop it. Anyone knows maybe? Is there any chance there's a hook for it?


    Maybe you could just kill one?

    If combat is what people like, I'm not sure why they're even playing Minecraft. There are a thousand games that do it in a much more interesting way

    Yea this is what baffles me mostly about the "people like MC combat" statement. Some time ago i picked up the feeling that combat is glorified touching and i haven't been able to shake that feeling. Holding a shovel or a sword or a battleaxe doesn't help. As a player there's a tiny droplet of immersion via the animation of the arm, but every other mob basically Touches you to death.

    Combat games offer choices. Animations. variety. in MC, all you have is a sword and a bow. Only one type of bow, only one really effective sword and enchantments that provide some flavor but mostly in the form of particles.

    Better than Wolves at least gives me SOME sense of combat. e.g. when i encounter The Beast i half-panic and don't pay attention to the Touch Of Death. At the battleaxe stage that kinda fails too.

    The Touch of Death is like chicken footsteps. Once noticed it can not be un-noticed.

    Am I missing something? Or are you setting up a block dispenser facing a block of obsidian, activating it, then moving the block to the next obsidian and repeating? Wouldn't that take longer than just mining it with an efficiency enchanted diamond/SF pick?

    I find it to be an excellent non-diamond alternative. It usually takes me quite a bit of effort to get an efficiency mattock.

    That was exactly what I was saying. I didn't say they were acting like kids, I said they ARE kids, you even quote my line.

    My most shocking experience so far is, i was babysitting a, what, 8 year old kid? I showed him BTW and he was impressed. Then he saw a zombie and he got scared, commenting that "we dont have those when i play with my friends". I swiftly punched the zombie to death with my battleaxe and went on. Next zombie, same thing. i slaughtered a couple of mobs to show him there was nothing to it, but the very concept of enemies in MC seemed alien to him.

    So yea, it's turned into a kids game that expect kiddy things for it. Pink horses are next.

    I just love it when posts end with "stop complaining." Being the horrible person I am, it just makes me warm and fuzzy. FC made the mod how he wanted it to be, he likes it, and he'll keep it that way.


    If there's one major thing BTW changed about me, it's that i consider myself to be part of The Dark Side by default :P.

    I agree listening to "the community," was the worst thing Mojang could've done (it's the worst thing any dev can do, really), but I don't think you can rant about "the community," acting like a bunch of kids when most of them are kids :)

    I disagree.

    I closely follow the Planetary Annihilation kickstarter and they do listen to their community. They also occasionally say "no" to feature requests. In general, i think Flowerchild would get along pretty well with most of the PA devs.

    Take some time to play the mod yourself

    you have no freaking clue how insulting you are being here.


    Quote from traceurwill

    I respect your decisions FC, you saw more sense than most other large scale modders out there (the forge team for example), stay true,

    If you believe this, then i don't really understand the point of the rest of your post.

    On topic with some of FC's previous rants about the game industry, I recently took some time to play a new MC-in-space knockoff recommended to me by a friend. True to form, they seem to have copied many of the worse aspects of the game, having recently implemented a confusing crafting system that can make any item, although all items can still be bought by the omnipresent "shops" that can be found within a 5 minute time frame.

    I played that game too. I think it can be fun, but it feels like really early alpha.

    aww you know what? my heart skips a beat every time i see that message. It gives me confidence that i'm gonna have a hell of a time, that i'll scream and shout at my screen. That I'll hug creepers, shoot skeletons and *poo* myself at Endermen. that I'll be afraid of the dark and even more afraid of wolves. that I'll work my ass off to get to bootsies and soulfourged steel. And that in the end, i'll gloat and remember it as really fun.

    That message welcomes me to The Dark Side,
    and The Dark Side reminds me of Home. :D

    You can't. You can't flip tables either, as they only have one orientation. You can make benches though, which are kind of like short tables, but I doubt that will help relieve your emotional distress.

    Maybe you could flip a Cauldron?

    XD

    He could always flip a coin tho.

    There are bugs, they just call it features until they fix it, and then that's when they say it was a bug.

    Temporary features then?
