    I am a qualified thaumaturge. I know what I'm doing.

    Actual info: It grants creative-style flight. It's pretty slow, but with haste 3 it's pretty good. It runs off of warded jars (not bottles, the block, kind of inconvenient because the thing also won't accept stacks of them) filled with potentia. It's glowing because I enchanted it.

    I have kind of mixed feelings about it. it looks really cool and all, but it again gives me a feeling if you really want to enjoy thaumcraft, you need to play it as a standalone mod, and not with other mods installed.
    but I really do hope the magic carpet will make a comeback, I really loved my carpet, in TC2, especially with a zephyr :p

    Looks more like something that should come with a steampunk mod, rather than a magic mod.

    It should have it's own system of movement, rather than just using creative mode flight. Creative flight is kinda boring, to be honest. Something more slippery and quick would be better. Or maybe just really slow and really controlled movement.

    TC has always felt to me at least like MagiTech so it fits.

    That looks utterly amazing. You did it again, TC :)
    EDIT: And yes, looks > Functionality.
    Because why not.

    It fits just fine. Vanilla Minecraft has redstone mechanical stuff already and Thaumcraft adds things to that not to mention the arcane bore. So it isn't even close to being purely about magic.

    I think this should be changed, so that in stead of just using potentia to power flight, it should have different effects to do different things, like buffs and so on, I made a massive list of it, but I can't be arsed to remake it right now...[DOUBLEPOST=1370610097][/DOUBLEPOST]There are probably a fair number of people who saw it, and even more who did but don't remember -_-
    I think it was the no topic thread. Good luck anyone who wants to find it...

    It uses creative style flight although it's a bit slower. Greater speed can be achievedvia haste enchants and iI saw a slight increase in speed with an un-enchanted harness while wearing boots of the traveller's. The potentia seemed to last for a good bit. In all its a cool addition, although I'll be using it more for building and mining in the nether. I'll still use mps for fast travel

    One problem: it drains vis

    aka hundreds of expensive crystal clusters. Unless they added a new way to regen vis (afaik they didn't). And by the time I get the crystal clusters, already got a gravichestplate which is +50% better.

    Does it drain vis?
    In addition to the consumed potentia?

    If it can be set to only the potentia...

    The harness does not drain vis.

    Can you run it of Motius or Volitio?(movement or flight essentia)
  13. RedBoss

    RedBoss Never Leaves

    Everything I've read just lists potentia. I will test the others later, but I doubt it

    If that is the case...

    Why does it feel this way? This means people heavily invested in thaumcraft get flight without having to do IC2 or MPS. That's great! And I know DoctorOr is a big fan of IC2 flight, but I think it is a terrible set of controls.

    Well, I think that if people want TC flight, it could be a more mid-game solution than getting a gravity suit, as it would be slower and it will be much easier to get.

    What I want to know is the recipe for it, and if there is any other preliminary research to go with it.

    Wow thanks, somebody finally doing the new TC3 stuff :D

    What do the new leggings do?

    It's always good to have multiple choices. :D

    I don't post full research spoilers for Thaumcraft, someone else may oblige you. I will recommend that you get a LOT of feathers. Also you should buff up your flux prevention methods when crafting. Having lots of stored essentia will save your environment. This thing is a hazard to craft. In retrospect, I'll spend the time storing essentia in jars before I craft an advanced TC or Thaumic Tinkerer item.

    No, I mean what is the recipe in the infusion altar, and what research must be done before it.
