All AgSkies stuff will be handled over at: http://minecraft.curseforge.com/forums/jadeds-packs/agrarian-skies-2 from now on This thread is for the discussion of the hardcore skyblock challenge "Agrarian Skies" The maps are available in the maps tab of the launcher. PSA: Bugs should be reported over here: http://forum.feed-the-beast.com/threads/agrarian-skies-hardcore-quest-bug-reporting.43625/ Reporting bugs on this thread means they may be missed. If the bug has already been reported on the bug thread a new report will probably be removed unless new information is provided. Its easier to keep track that way. Guide Videos Spoiler Blood Magic Start: Getting Started: As the sole survivor of the cataclysm you must rebuild and repopulate the planet while defeating minions of darkness that leak through from the nether realms. Just like my other pack Magic Farm this pack and map changes the normal minecraft gameplay. Some features of this pack will be familiar to MF2 players. Some will not. You must create your resources out of nothing. You will need to complete quests to earn extra lives and extra rewards towards the goal of rebuilding the planet. I suggest reading the forum threads on the ExNihilo and Ex Aquilo mods. You can find links to all the mods and future changelogs here: https://feedthebeast.atlassian.net/wiki/display/PML/Agrarian Skies: Hardcore Quest The default map has a lovely house. There is also a flat platform available. The SMP map is in the server download. Server owners will need to assign houses or let people fly out to their houses before starting the co-op. There are flight potions.

The Map Home Sweet Home was built by @Morvelaira . If you spawn and fall through the void swap to creative and fly up. Use /jspawn set to set the spawn to the platform.

Quest changes: Added a few new random rewards Marked most rewards as only being available 1 or 2 times for the random pick. Some items can still be gotten over and over but no one really needed 20 stacks of bee hives or 40 stacks of torches etc. People should see less duplicate random rewards Corrected a few more spelling mistakes Minetweaker Changes: removed fishfingers till we figure out why they are crashing people's games added ore dictionary definitions for TiCon tables, any wood should now be ok for making the tables required in the first quest instead of just oak. This should hopefully also fix the glitch where it sometimes accepted the Tool Station as a stencil table and vice versa Harvestcraft salt has been removed from "oreSalt" to stop people exploiting it All Ex Nihilo gravel and sand have been removed from "oreMetal" only the dust is equivalent to regular ore... exploiting cheaters Map: No changes, renamed to version K to prevent overwrites. 1.0.8 Changed an ID in Ex Aquilo that was messed up and causing issues 1.0.7 Updated: Gendustry Hardcore Quest Mod : should fix the inventory wipe and rotten heart bugs TiCon Unofficial update to TiCon tweaks thanks to Prog Blood Magic Mariculture Quests: lowered cobble requirement to 1 piece of octuple compressed re-ordered the smelting quest line to make more sense adjust a few of the random reward weights Configs: more ore dictionary stuff to hopefully allow for people turning in any wood version of barrels,tables and stations instead of just oak.
