Interesting - I created a test creative world and dug up and down to see what happens - and dug up to the mining world (I guess that's what it is) and then the end... not sure I like that aspect of the pack. But oh well, I'll give that a try @SolManX - Thank you!

I just started playing Stoneblock 2 and every time I hit the tilde key, I keep getting a radial menu whenever I try to use ore excavation. I was wondering if there was any way of disabling that and if there is, please let me know

It's a conflict with the Morph mod. Hit Escape to get options and go to controls. On the very bottom right of the screen you'll see 'iChunUtil Key Binds - Click Here'. When the new UI pops up, choose 'Morph>Key Binds'. It's the last item 'Selector Favourite/Radial Menu' - set that to something other than the tilde key.

PS I saw this on a ChosenArchitect vid.

This may not be a simple answer, but is there a way to automatically despawn all hostile mobs say every day at noon? I think game world is suffering from stuck mobs filling the mob cap limit, as not really seeing hostile mobs.
Sure I could switch to peaceful and back again, but it would be better if the game handled this.

daylight sensor wired into a command block that can only be triggered by the max redstone signal strength ? if the command block is told to change difficulty to peaceful on trigger. u can do some inverted redstone stuff for the change from peaceful to what ever your default is on a different command block (just dont let it trigger on noon)

This, but instead of changing difficulty, do a more complex thing. Kill. Unlimited range. entity (NOT NAMED).

No, I don't know the coding for that. Yes, it is possible.

I would avoid switching from normal to peaceful too often. Have seen it do many weird things to the world over the years. Some times it effectively completely stops ANY mobs from spawning on any difficulty.

Unless you're in an ocean biome, they might eventually spawn. But, in the meantime, look up 'bait' in JEI. Or you can buy spawn eggs from Pam's marketplace.

What's the mod that allows you to place items directly on blocks? Similar to using an item frame, but not having to.

I laid down two chunks of grass because I like some color in my gray world... and then I went off mining. When I returned, I had a chicken, a rooster, a cow, 2 sheep, and a compressed pig wandering around my base. :) So it is possible to spawn them naturally with grass.

The compressed pig is weird, but I think if I kill it, 9 regular pigs will take its place. Mmmm, bacon...

How to best store damaged loot drops like armor and swords etc?
I know about refine storage or applied energistics mods, what more are there to simply store all mob-drops?

This is true. However, it must be a player-kill. Auto-killing (or environmental damage) still treats it as one 'thing'. Annoyingly, this also affects killing it as a Blood Magic sacrifice - the Sacrificial Knife destroys it and counts it as one 'kill'.

Goodness, that is super annoying indeed. I went thru the entire Controls list and it didn't fix it.

If you didn't type that solution I never would have seem that little tiny text way down in the bottom right corner of my large monitor. What a joke!! But thanks bud, you're a lifesaver indeed. These mod developers, sheesh!!!! What are they thinking???

What is really odd is that my Ore Excavation was working just fine for the entire past week. Suddenly, out of the blue, today when I press that tilde/grave key, I started to get the iChunUtils radial menu too. Luckily I remembered reading your solution the other day (I said to myself "well at least I don't have that problem with the pack" LOL). Thanks again!

Do Oil Shales have any use? if so, How can I harvest them?
thermal expansion crude oil in solid form. if u harvest it with silk touch u get a bucket of crude oil from magma crucible-ing it. else it gives bitumen (which melts for 250 mb each , u will always get less then 4 without beyond vanilla fortune)
Why is crude oil relevant though ? u can distill it down into refined fuel which is worth at base 1.5m rf or 2.25m rf(with ignition plugs spec augment) inside a compression dynamo per bucket(i'm not counting generic fuel efficiency augments in these numbers)
