I have another (Hope I'm not over my quota :rolleyes:)

I have a Bloodwood tree to supplement my redstone dust supply, is there a way to farm glowstone dust. Mining the nether doesn't get much, wand of equal trade is the most efficient way I have at present but that means manual labor. I did read on a year old reddit post that witch spawners might be a solution, I get a little from my cursed earth spawner, but I don't know if this is even an option on DW20 1.7.10 as I have not found any witch spawners. I suppose I could soul vial one and create a spawner but is this the best solution?

Mystctaft world with glowstone as the dirt and stone though maybe hard to get a nice stable age that doesn't go all random. But that would solve glowstone problems. Witchery adds structures that have 2 witch spawners and dispenser with loot but RNG can be mean and not help with that.

Demonic bees from Forestry. They are easy to get(very early available with little breeding required) and produces Glowstone and Phosphor(which can be used to produce Lava).

Thank you both for the replies - bees, I have a love hate relationship with and I am not ready just yet to delve into them. Mystcraft scares me a little with all the instability so I will just limit that mod to linking books for now.

I'll have a look for the witch spawner structures (I think that witchery is another dimension isn't it) and unless another answer arrives I'll stick to equal trade.

Thanks again

Does DW20 have MFR? You could always grab one with a reusable safari net and run a auto-spawner for witches.

Yes it has 2 options for spawning - MFR safari net capture put in a spawner and the EnderIO vial capture that you can then make a powered spawner with any broken spawner. I will give the MFR option a try as I have nearly unlimited essence and a room set up.

Is there something I can setup that just goes through my chests that analyzes everything in them with the thaumcraft analyze thing?
You can use a dropper to drop it in front of you and then something else to pick it up and move to another inventory after 5 seconds

You then just need to hold right click (or weigh it down) as the items cycle in front of you

Nope but maybe that could be a new feature or something with the addons after its unlocked takes twice as long to do since it could be automated vis makes it faster and its locked to a player like arcane doors and such. Won't discover new aspects but will all the ones you have unlocked at least that's my opinion on it

I read on the Biomes o plenty wiki that passive mob spawn rate are different biome from biome, however in the config folder I didn't found any option to increase or normalize the spawn rate.

This question is because I still have to find a damn chicken or sheep xD

I have built one of those with 4 -5 focus to get yellorium, I don't run it though as I have not commissioned my turbine (and I was concered that the power used would be excessive, so I built a deep dark miner with 64 mining wells instead) , I am waiting to see if the problems with the computer code that I ran into are fixed by Dire, I do have a diamond chest of yellorium and the deep dark provides just about all the minerals I could never use. It is really a little frustrating that I have plenty of redstone, ender pearls, can get as many blaze rods as I need, I am nearing 1000 diamonds even though I used diamond blocks in my reactor, I mined the nether and have plenty of nether quartz but glowstone is hard to come by (what I really mean is I have to go out to get it rather than build something to bring it to me in vast quantities).

I did do a MFR witch spawner and that only produced about a stack of glowstone in a full MC day with wand of equal exchange I will probably get 8 - 10 stacks in that time.

I usually find chickens in Jungle Biomes (or similar) and sheep in plains biomes (or similar), however, this is based off of 1.6 info, as I would never willingly use BoP, which means I haven't really experienced it other than having to venture through a few BoP biomes in Infinity.

Which biome controller do you use? I'm currently testing Realistc Wolrd Generation by Ted which however uses a biome controller and shapes it better.

Is that the mod pack with the huge number of ducks that look like chickens with yellow beaks? I think JadedCat had something to do with that, she drops by from time to time so hopefully you'll get some help (I think naming her makes it more likely she will see the post, sorry JadedCat if I remembered wrong)

Nope is a custom modpack I am building for my own. There are no mods that modify the passive mobs spawning mechanics except for DrZhaks which adds new mobs.

Edit: To jordsta, it shouldn't be RWG as nobody reported something like this on it's github and there is no mentioning about mobs control.

I am making a custom modpack and I have a few questions related to it


I have been hearing people say that the configs for iguana tweaks in material energy ^4 is op compared to the regular, if yes could someone please explain how so.

I have another question based on the tinkers long bows and crossbows. In my testing I found no difference damage wise and the only differences were in the draw speed, and whether or not you can pick up arrows/bolts after shooting them. In this, the crossbow had a longer draw speed and I was able to pick up the bolts but not arrows. Another difference was that the crossbow was auto draw. I tested all of this with blue slime crossbows and longbows. I was wondering which is better and what are the best bows and arrows/bolts you can have with them.

My last question is not relevant to tinkers, but I was wondering how can I compile my mod pack and send it to my friends who will also be playing with it. I was thinking something along the lines of multi mc and sending them a rar file so they can unzip it into an instance. That is not a very practical idea I was wondering if any of you have any better ideas on how to distribute the modpack.

I can also give the modpack to some of you guys if you want to play on it as I am hosting a server and there arent too many people playing.

Thank you all in advance :)!!

I am using ME^4 iguana tweaks in my infinity world, with my crossbow I can one shot the wither.



I have a question: building a frame quarry with BC mining wells. I want it to have no problems with lava, how would I do that.

I was thinking of using pumps next to the BC mining wells but what pump moves as fast as a mining well?

I added the iguana tweaks config from me4 and had an all stone pick from tinkers that could mine obsidian faster than a diamond pick in vanilla. It constantly leveled up because I only need to mine 170 blocks or so and I could repair it with cobble in my inventory while out manual mining.
