Is there a way to make it nighttime on command in 1.12? I vaguely remember coming across something besides Blood Magic's ritual (which obviously isn't available in 1.12 at the moment) that could, but don't remember what/where.
Fairly late game, but Draconic Evolution has an item that can change time of day and weather. A bit power hungry, but that's all I can think of.

Does anyone know of any mods for 1.12.2 that let you start the game in the nether? My search engine skills have failed me, and I vaguely remember a mod that let you do it

ExU2 builders wand seems to be the creative builder's wand, on account of it just making blocks up and not taking any from your inventory. Anyone know of a fix? Or am I going to have to disable that recipe? I have better builder's wands, so it's ok, but I wanted that one because it's unbreakable.

There is the normal one and the creative one, but the creative one is purple.

I know it used to work. This isn't the first time I've built one, so it's so weird. Only thing I can think of is that the mod creator made the mixup on the latest update or something. And if that's the case, I think all I can do is wait for another update.

Playing the Awakening mod pack: I went into the NEI options and assigned F7 as the hotkey for the mob spawn overlay, but pressing F7 does nothing. Is the overlay disabled in this modpack and is there a way to re-enable it?

I know that Awakening has Light Level Overlay Reloaded, but I much prefer NEI's overlay for simple readability.

Astral Sorcery.

I know it's quite visually stunning, but what items are it's "showcase" items? What does this mod do that others don't? What does this mod do better than others?

Basically, what do you play this mod for?

the "wand" that acts like the warding focus from thaumcraft , (edit its name starts with illumination)
constellation attunement "star perks" (discidia = power: better power per shot projectile weaponry,thorns aura, dot)armara = protection , and there is one for travel (there are more attune-able ones but i cant remember off the top of my head) .You can only pick 1 constellation's perks though.
More transmutation recipes is a plus so is a sand gen without a processing machine(only a block breaker or pistons, the first being better for performance then the 2nd)
there probably is a few more (like a different version of a builder wand).

I think I heard one that it has a tile accelerator. Which is interesting to me I suppose because (somehow) I've never used a torcherino, or the chromaticraft version whose name escapes me, or any other tile acceleration mechanism before.

I believe it also has an interesting tree farm mechanism fwiw.

I am trying to find a thing I've built before so I know it exists! lol. But I could have sworn it was Ender IO but I can't find it in any of the wikis.

It was an alternative to the tesseract. If memory serves, it looked like a frame of a cube. I cannot find it for the life of me.

If you know of a better option for power transportation, I'll take that, too. I have all the cliches in my pack.

Edit: and of course, immediately after I give up and ask, I find it. It's the Dimensional Transceiver

The one thing so far that ExU2 pipes have over Thermal Dynamics is that they can filter as many things as you want through the ExU2 filters. Is there any way to have a TD retriever pull more than 9 items into the same block without uglifying it and putting retrievers all over? This is for my auto-processing machine. I want it to pull the ores and whatnot, but as of right now, I can only choose my 9 favorites and have to actually manually do the rest, like with my hands, like some kind of a peasant.

Edit: apparently 15 if I upgrade the receivers to resonant, but still, I'm looking for more if possible

it is possible to use a phantom face , the main logic for them is what ever enters this block gets insert into the phantom faces paired block (they dont have to be touching but there is a range limit like 6 blocks away max ?) ,
so if u bind a phantom face to a storage inventory like a chest or a crate any items you pump into the phantom face (like from a retriever pulling items into its self) will get placed into the bound inventory.(each side of the phantom face does the same thing so u can have multiple retrievers on it) All u would "need" to have visible is the servo moving from the chest to the machine (unless the machine can pull from an adjacent inventory then nothing else is visible )

Are you taking advantage of the ore dictionary matching option? If the common ores (copper, tin, lead, etc) have 2-3 varieties each, that could help cut down on slots needed quite a bit.

Yes! I found that one out accidentally, too. Only, it was with dyes, then I confirmed it with wood. I am still tweaking all that, though.

Soon, I will have to figure out how phantom faces work, but I actually think 15 will be sufficient for this system anyway. I don't want to do end the whole game on this one. This is to Make it easier to build a much, much bigger and more complicated one down the line. It's all good.


Much, much more important question: IS there a mod that let's you shoot arrows off like a machine gun? Like, no infinity, you have to have the arrows, but you can shoot em off like 10 per second? And if not, where's a good place to start on how to make a mod?

Two questions.

For the latest versions of Tinkers' Construct,like the one in Direwolf20's 1.12.x pack,does embossing a tool remove the traits of the original part,or do you keep the traits of the old part,while adding the traits of the new one to it? Like,say,if I emboss a silver blade onto my manyullyn-bladed rapier,will I keep Insatiable and add Holy,or will Insatiable be replaced with Holy?

Second,will ardite's Pteramour trait work with Silk Touched smoothstone,and will it work with materials that get sucked up by a secondary inventory,like a /dank/null?

Yes, there is one, called "Fine Stuff". It has a Launcher which can shoot arrows, potions and TNT. The mod isn't on the curseforge, though.

I posted in a thread someone just started. But i I do recommend Flux Networks. It truly is a great mod once ya get it figured out.
