The botania Ring of Chordata does not only refresh the air when underwater but adds a nightvision buff and swim speed.
The materials are not hard to get at all and the mana usage is neglectable for what the ring does.
Other than carrying around glowstone blocks and a pickaxe with silk touch tech has no real options to oppose that simplicity.
But - but - Undersea Lair! :D (Although I might make use of the ring during construction...)

There's a bit of flavor text in the quest of 'Not For Drinking' that mentions that 'Biomass isn't environmentally unfriendly enough for your tastes', and when you combine that with the mention that the 'Carved in the Mind' set of runes 'makes you want to do bad things', I think it opens up some interesting plot bunnies.

When your underground lair is done don't forget (if you knew this as it's an overlooked feature) you can turn any carpenters block excluding tiles (the second layer to blocks) into a ligthsource by adding glowstone dust with a shift right click.
Dark Damp kinda uneven place with not visible lightsources for extra creepiness ;)

I have a similar setup that's supplied by a BC pump fueling four hobbyist engines. It works pretty well, you just have to let the engines fill up with water first, and then give the system time to refill the piping. THEN cut your engines on and it shouldn't be a problem.
Again, there are lots of workable solutions. Hobbyist engines do not use water at anywhere close to the rate that combustion engines do. The issue is that the two pics I posted should work in an identical fashion, yet they do not. I didn't want to derail the thread, I just wanted to point out why a lot of packs don't rely on BC anymore.

So last night i finially got around to doing the spirit world. After 6 attempts i finially managed to stay alive long enough to collect enough disturbed cotton to make the dream weaver.

After 10 attempts with the dream weaver to not get a nightmare, i gave up and watched a let's play of the spirit world (i forget his name but he is on ep 60 or something now. Gotta say i love his video's of the few i have watched now).

Moved my dream weaver to right next to my bed and drank another potion... bam dream and not a nightmare. 5 potions later never got the nightmare. Realized i did not have the distrubed cotton for the quest book, so i broke the dream weaver went back into the nightmare to get my credit and put the dream weaver back up. Have not had a single nightmare since (maybe 6 more dives into the spirit world now).

Was this extremely bad/good luck with RNG or is something else going on ? (btw i now have 2 potions and cottons next to my dream weaver still sitting next to my bed)

Sounds like a case of 'works as designed':

Hmm - I'll definitely consider it. It looks like 'Light infused' blocks (which I used on a Horizons server) have been removed from Magic Crops. I'd also considered the Essence Lamps if I go with the sterile, high-tech ambiance. Might even use both in different areas.

If you want a quick summary, buildcraft pipes have always had really odd behavior when you try to have multiple outputs or loops. Here is an example in pictures:


This doesn't work: http://puu.sh/hoizU/c2b9285d3b.jpg

But this does: http://puu.sh/hoiX3/a373b01c65.jpg


It is the exact same output to the system (80mb/t) and the exact same usage (4 combustion engines). However the first setup will let 3 engines go dry and the second works perfectly. It's just how BC handles stuff and it's dumb. I assume BC 7 will be a lot better but we're stuck with 6 for now.




I'd hardly say that I was ranting, and just because the pack ships with or without mods doesn't mean anyone who is annoyed can't just change the list themselves.
Actually, in the first picture, it looks like you're not directing the fluid, which is why you're getting backup. BC is fine as is, it just requires some thought, which TE does not. TPL has said he has no problem with adding some thought into more complex systems, such as what you're using. Try putting an iron fluid pipe in to direct the fluid flow, because it looks like it's trying to input water into the other emerald pipe since BC randomly chooses directions at cross-sections if there's nothing set for directions, like an iron or diamond pipe.

I just noticed that the metallurgic infuser will let you smelt bronze from tin dust and copper ingots but doesn't have this ability for the higher end alloys. @thephoenixlodge any chance of adding recipes for the later alloys also? Would be much nicer automating the infuser than having a bunch of TC smelterys.
Unfortunately, the metallurgic infuser can only use certain items for the infuser material (as seen on the mekanism modtweaker page).

Open to LAN with cheats on and you should be able to turn on quests. But, I didn't have to do this.

I'm sorry you've failed at Buildcraft's Pipe Mini-game! Tell him what he's won Joe!

Well Wylker you now get to spend the next 4 hours placing pipes and engines in various arrangements until everything lines up just right! But don't worry you're going to have fun doing it, because even though better options exist in other mods, this is the way we did it back in the old days and gosh darn it you're going to like it! :)

Uh, the message is probably saying Hardcore Questing mode is not enabled, which it shouldn't be. Questing mode on the other hand is enabled with no effort required.

It's been a while since I restarted, but you just need to follow the questlines - the early botania and crop quests especially. From memory, I think you'll need to complete the essence seed quest before ores are available.

PS the enderman quest can wait - nothing depends on that afaik.
Vanilla trick for safely killing endermen: create an overhang of blocks 1 block above your head. (3 block height). Enderman is 3 blocks tall and you are 2 blocks tall. Don't get angry if you already know this. There's no reason you can't kill an endermen with a plain stick and no armor if you use this. Enjoy your ender pearl!
