    You have not filled it. :p

    Looking at the code, the Player Imitation Core seems rather limited in its capabilities. What if it also allowed mob spawners to run when the player isn't nearby, at a reduced rate depending on the tier of the core?

    I guess I'll have to try a little bit harder to figure this out then!:D

    I was thinking about a fluid tool that could link to a crystal tank or other valid fluid storage, or be able to store X amount of fluid in it and allow you to place the fluid in world. I know there are machines that fill holes and the like, but this would be useful for small scale placement rather than click tank, place fluid, click tank, repeat.

    Another thought would be a biome compass for your biomes. Mostly thinking about how the dimension resets and how hard it can be to find certain ones. Maybe it has an inventory slot that when an item exclusive to the biome is placed it will point to the closest biome it represents so that you would have to have found the biome at least once so that people can't just beeline? i.e cliffstone would point to luminous cliffs or aura glass shards points to crystal plains.

    I don't know how hard it would be to implement as I am not familiar with coding, but as someone who spent a few hours and 40k+ blocks searching for crystal mountains for those sweet blocks it would be a very welcome addition.:p

    Use the RC spring-powered pump, which has a much larger capacity.

    That removes the need for exploration altogether, instead turning it into simple "follow the arrow".

    Making the spawner run its normal behavior is not possible without ASM, and at any rate you are describing RC's spawner controller.

    Thanks! I was so immersed in Chromaticraft I forgot to check your other mods.

    I can understand that, i just figured that if it was gated behind finding all the biomes it would be okay, but now that I think about it, it would more trouble than it's worth when you add more stuff out there.

    Is there anything that supposed to help find other towers (if there are any others) once you find one? The tower I activated froze my game when I activated it and I had the item from it in my inventory when I reloaded but was there anything else I could have learned before/during activation or am I overthinking it?

    I just filled my entire inventory with artifacts just to see what would happen.

    That was fun.

    And, well, my wooden house needed an upgrade anyway.

    Provided you got the progress flags, you have not lost anything you cannot retrieve.

    I completed the puzzle! (Although I went to creative to find the pieces :D)
    But the next part, you sir are a delightful madman! :)

  10. Ok, I'm getting a bit frustrated with Chromaticraft. This is another stuck progression gripe. I've searched and searched but nobody seems to be stuck where I'm stuck. On my progression tab, up the the 5th tier is opened up. These are the tasks that I have not completed:

    Tier 1: Mysterious Relics, Glowing Towers
    Tier 2: Refractory Materials
    Tier 3: n/a
    Tier 4: Lumen Harnessing (don't have the recipe for Lumen Repeaters
    Tier 5: Lumen Storage, ? (unknown) (completed alloying)

    I have 3 chests full of blank pages. I've built a focus frame and ritual altar. I've crafted everything that I have a recipe for that doesn't contain an item with hieroglyphics. What haven't I tried?

    Have you tried running power into anything using wooden repeaters?

    He can't, because he's missing the recipe for them. The refractory gems progression is required though, I think.

    My bad. I read it wrong. :p
    So I guess mingling with the locals will be their next step if that is what is gating?

    Most definitely is. They shouldn't be too rare, luckily.
  16. So I need to find lumenite? I've done a bit of research on this and plenty of exploration. What's the best way to find it?

    EDIT: @Fishy51 Oh, mingling with the locals. That was a hint. Thanks!
  17. Ok,so I mingled with the locals, I got the refractory gems accomplishment and associated recipes. I crafted the recipes. My pages remain blank and I am back where I started. I do not have the Lumen Repeater recipes. I have the Lumen Repeater structure, but I cannot craft the repeater itself. Again, the tasks I am missing are:
    Tier 1: Mysterious Relics, Glowing Towers
    Tier 4: Lumen Harnessing
    LordPINE and GamerwithnoGame like this.

    You won't be able to do the Tier 4 one without being able to make the wooden repeaters as I'm sure you know, so it may be one of the T1 ones. Have you identified all of the types of lumen? Unfortunately I can't remember off the top of my head what those two progressions mean.

  19. I have discovered all the colored pylons. Mysterious relics is a bunch of sparkling fragments. It looks like it can be traded to villagers for 64 emeralds. I have no idea how to find them. Glowing towers looks like a pylon from starcraft. Apparently its a very rare discoverable structure. I haven't found any. I've locked up my computer a couple times generating chunks exploring to find them. I believe I read a quote by Reika somewhere that the Glowing Towers does not gate anything important.
