    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.

    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.

    SMP House locations:

    New Agrarian Skies server section: http://forum.feed-the-beast.com/categories/agrarian-skies.141/ includes a section for people looking for or hosting small co-op servers.


    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.

    HQM - to 2.1.0 - fixes a couple things and adds the ability to make it so some random reward items can only be gotten once or twice.

    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 :p


    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.
    Tool leveling is back on. It is lower than MF. Mining leveling is not on (not like there is much to mine )

    1.0.6

    Updated HQM to stop an SMP crash






    Donations: These are the people who make this pack possible. Pick one or 2 or all of them :p





    T-shirts for the pack are available: http://jadedcatmodpacks.spreadshirt.com/ any profits are split between me and the artist, and on my part would be used for redbull and coffee for development days and cat toys for my boss who thinks pack development takes away from her cuddle time.

    I was thinking about this. Maybe 'Magic Sky Farm'? Magic Farm Sky Block is meh... MFSB?

    Bladgrim New Member

    Can't wait to try this out later; a bit busy to put the time forth now, but definitely looks a step above the traditional skyblock.

    As for a name, how about simply Magic Sky Farm? It gets the point across that it's Magic Farm, but it's also clearly not Magic Farm, thus removing any confusion that others may face seeing both this and Magic Farm on the launcher. Just a though.

    Edit: Of course somebody has to beat me to posting this name idea.

    Cool, i can now(as long as no changes) host this with bungiecord on my server!

    I don't forsee any changes other than maybe some new recipe tweaks if needed.

    The flat map may get a lot smaller on the final release. It was originally built that big because of the vanilla derpy spawn issue.

    Which is exactly what I feel about the new map.

    Version 1.0.3 is on the launcher. MFR is now supported by Ex Nihilo.

    Jaded, I'm about to start trying out the skyblock magic farm, and I just wanted to know if the textures you have for the ex nihilo stuff that go along with your texture pack are publicly available yet (and if so, where would be nice), or if they're just for your own personal use for now.

    And while I'm directing this question at jaded (seeing as she checks the thread all the time, and it's her texturepack, it seemed rude not to...) any answers from any source are welcome. Thanks!

    Jadedcat Global Moderator and Modpack Creator Team Member Global Moderator

    They are in the pack on the launcher. I just can't have it install into the private pack automagically. They are also in the newest build on mega. If you download the resourcepack on the launcher for Magic Farm and copy it over you'll get the Ex Nihilo textures.

    What do you all think of "Agrarian Sky" or "Void Farm" or "Farm the Void" ?

    I can't think of any names for the pack just this second, but I just thought I'd pop in and say that I love the skyblock version of Magic Farm. And tonight, unless my transport breaks down again, I'll be updating the pack and trying out the Home Sweet Home map because it looks pretty awesome. Morvelaira really made the starting island look nice and homely.
    I just hope I get as many oreberry bushes as I did last time.
  12. "Magic Farm: Prepare to fall edition" MPOTY Edition (Mod Pack Of The Year Edition)

    The new house is really pretty. It's completely and 100% safe, right? :p

    Aerial survival plantation

    I thought about doing a short write up about asp rangers
    building forward bases in high altitude and "void" territory.

    So, I lost about six hours sleep last night to the Magic Block Farm Sky Void Death Hate map. I started poking at it an hour before bedtime and it sucked me right in. Thank you, Jadedcat, for sharing such an interesting game mode with the community.

    I can't imagine a Hard / Hardcore run. I starved to death before I found my first silkworm. My first seed of any type was pumpkin!

    One thing of note from testing, in Skyblock Home Sweet Home I'm starting with only 7 hunger (3.5 muttons). Is this intended?

    Jaded, Natura's Hopseed when planted in a single dirt block generates more three dirts when it grows...

    Quietgirl New Member

    I think the home sweet home is more dangerous than the flat skyblock. Limited space to walk around, unknown depth of the island, and lets not forget that you have to jump practically everywhere on that map. :)

    So, as intended then?

    Well I don't know if it was intended to be this dangerous since it wasn't Jaded who made the map but it works

    Don't know if this is a bug, or a feature I'm not understanding, but I can't craft a silk touch pick. I'm using the standard silky jewel on my leveled up pick (has one modification available) in a tool station. Can anyone tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Or is this a bug?
  20. Quietgirl

    Quietgirl New Member

    If the pick has luck or fortune on it you won't be able to put silk touch on it, don't know if that is your problem tho
