    Question. So with ATM3, Ive run into a problem I never have before. Some saplings just wont plant in cold biomes. I tried to plant an Umbran Sapling in an ice plains biome and couldnt bonemeal/etc it. Tried some other sapling, also didnt work. Thought something might be broken but then a spruce sapling worked. Went to a different biome and could plant the umbran. So I wanted to know, is this just bop itself making it so I can't plant a ton of saplings in certain biomes? Or another mod?

    And if its bop/other mods themselves, are there options/methods/ways/modded items to plant a non cold sapling in a cold biome?

    Silly question, perhaps, but - what are you looking for in a modpack?

    So, I was NOT just whining (not JUST whining) the other day when I was talking about not being able to find diamonds. It turns out, in my mining world does NOT spawn diamonds. I know this because instead of building things like a normal minecrafter, I've spent the last week or so just digging giant holes in the ground with buildcraft. I am building a 62-block moat around a 100x100x100 block for... reasons. Anyway, I've now completed 4 64x64 complete clears with buildcraft and it's not uncovered a single diamond.

    So, I'm checking the config files for aroma and I see this:

            "type": "oreReplace",
            "identifier": "removeDiamonds",
            "enabled": false,
            "targetBlock": "minecraft:stone",
            "originalBlock": [
    But if I'm reading that right, shouldn't that mean it's not replacing diamonds? Or is that just confusingly worded and that's my culprit?

    Why would this be default?

    Edit: It's also not spawning granite, diorite and andesite, if anyone has any ideas there, too. I didn't see them in the config, I don't think.

    Probably because it'd get more exposure there and because posting here has probably been nothing but a headache for them.

    It does look interesting. I've never done Gregtech, though, I don't know enough about it to know if it's any good. But the stuff about starting on the floating island and having to progress your way to the overworld was neat. My friends won't let me play this one, though, I'm sure.

    I know a vanilla minecrafter that did something like that... made the most OP quad-hut witch farm.

    I'm literally doing it because I want to look at a 100x100x100 block, just to better comprehend a million (that's 1 million blocks in the smallest amount of space possible). I am a super nerd.

    I'm also doing it because the BC quarry is hypnotic and I can do this project while I re-watch Game of Thrones :p

    This should probably go in tge "cool things" thread, but it's a twist on my cheese and whine fest about not getting any diamonds.

    But anyway, I have no idea why, bit I come back to my base for the first time in a while, and it's covered in these flowers that give me regen when I walk over them. If you pluck em and cook em,.they give you diamonds.

    So, the obvious lesson here is that whining on the internet can solve real problems.

    Whoa! What flowers are those?? :D

    Also, in reference to GregTech: its very much a mod that suits some people more than others; me personally I quite enjoy the way it works with its huge range of ores, its many tiers of technology, and its micro-crafting that makes sense to me (certain items need screws or rods made from metals, which themselves need files and stuff to make). And it goes from sort of stone age to steam age to different tiers of electricity. Its not for everyone, but I likes it.

    It's a cheshire rose, apparently from simple oregen. My running theory is that they spawned to celebrate the first day of spring? I'm not sure, but there are hundreds of them all over my base and surrounding areas and they were not there before.

    If you cook them, they actually give you "heart diamonds" which oredict as diamonds, but if you need actual diamonds, you can use them to bake diamond blocks, then break down the blocks.

    I just thought it was kind of ironic that I couldn't find diamonds for the longest time, now they're literally growing like weeds

    Edit: it seems to be only around my base, too. No one else's base, and no where else that I've seen. I do not get it, lol

    Edit2: lol, "bake" diamond blocks. That was supposed to be make

    Does the leagacy launcher only run FTB packs?

    OK, so I'm gonna mess with my friend on my server. He's making his wife build his house for him, and she is making a secret room where I will then set up something to continuously breed chickens in that house, all hidden behind a painting so he'll sit there wondering why the hell his house is always full of chickens. I have to admit, I got the general idea from youtube.

    Buuut, I need some advice on how to propel the chickens out of there so he doesn't see them like half-hanging out of the picture, making it obvious where they're coming from. Originally, I was thinking of a piston, but that makes noise. The thing that gave me the idea was all vanilla, though, so I feel like we can do better.

    OMG, I think I just got it. That ender fluid stuff that teleports you if you stand in it... would that work on chickens?

    Probably, but you wouldn't know where it would end up. Possible alternatives: conveyor belts would probably kick them through without stopping. I think there are some teleposers that can be set to transport entities to specific coordinates (or at least relative coordinates). Also remember that chickens don't take fall damage. People rarely look at ceilings.
