The Overworld is Overrated (Nether-Only Picture-through)

    Alright, so as I was working on the Natura pages for the wiki, I realized that it makes the Nether a fully livable place. I decided to do a playthrough where I only use the Nether. I will only be using the Overworld for things that need it. If there is an item that I need but cannot obtain, I will create a balanced recipe for it using MineTweaker (example: Potash Apple + 8 gold = 2 Apples). The resource pack being used is a custom version of Faithful 32x.

    Alright, so here is the world I was given. I used the seed "Nether!" with BoP worldgen.

    I eventually found a nice place to make my starting hovel. I'll at some point build a nice home with the lovely Natura woods and glass.

    As per usual, I just kind of wandered around the world. I got some basic materials, food, and some nice iron-tier tools (Bloodwood). I died a few times to some Heatscars and Pigmen, as you can imagine. I got a bunch of materials, and plan on using lava for my power system, and will be using mainly TE3 for my stuff. I haven't used it at all, so it will be a new experience. Actually, I haven't done much of a TE system since 1.4 or 1.2.5. I got myself a Natura Obelisk, to set my spawn point. Of course, I got some chests, and some Nether Furnaces. I've started getting a Smeltery going, using whatever that block is called that's made from Gravel/Heat Sand, Tainted Soil, and Nether Warts. I haven't actually got any of the blocks made, because I need my warts to grow.

    At the end of the run tonight I had two chests with a bunch of useful stuff in them.

    EDIT: I will be keeping this part of the post updated to every MineTweaker change I make. To use this config, simply copy and paste the following into the /minecraft/config/minetweaker/main.cfg file.

    MineTweaker configuration file:
    # See the forum post for example and documentation.
    version 2;
    # set your list of server admin usernames here
    # admins are privileged users and will receive
    # any error messages that might occur.
    minetweaker.setAdmins("Myself", "MyAdminBuddy", "SatanicSanta");
    # Add your commands here
    furnace.addRecipe(Glass * 2, NaturaGlass);
    furnace.addRecipe(RubberSap, SlimeSap);
    recipes.addShaped(SlimeSap, [[Slime, MagmaCream, Slime], [BloodSap, BloodSap, BloodSap], [Slime, MagmaCream, Slime]]);
    recipes.addShaped(Forge, [[Seared, Seared, Seared], [BlockIron, Station, BlockIron], [BlockIron, null, BlockIron]]);

    This'll be fun to watch. Did you end up cutting Blood Magic from your list, or did I just miss it when I looked at the list?

    I'm not sure what that would be like as I have never played Agrarian Skies, and don't plan on it either.

    Hellfish. Hellfish everywhere.

    You need to picture Padfoote twitching, wild eyes flicking left and right, as he says this.

    Picture being locked in a room made out of cursed earth, but every time you try to get out, they start spawning at twice the previous rate.

    Oh jeez. I can barely handle a couple Hellfish...
    More reasons to avoid Agrarian Skies

    Alright, I worked a little bit on the world today. I got a Magmatic Dynamo, a proper nether wart farm, and a smeltery up and running. I got possessed a couple times, killed several times, etc. You know, the usual Nether stuff.

    AA on the overworld for water? Sounds like you need to try RotaryCraft! It's got something called a Dew Point Agrigator(sic) that is mainly used to suck water out of the air(actually, that's all it is good for), but it even works in the nether!(slow as hell, but it works!)

    I can't run RotaryCraft without melting my computer :/

    Oh. Uh, sorry?

    I guess I could suggest another trick. You'd need Ars Magica, but it'd work.

    Use buildcraft floodgates to get water in the nether (use buckets to fill a tank with water and then pump it out). What's more is that you can use this to farm squid.

    Having Metallurgy on there would be neat, since it has a ton of nether ores.
  17. SatanicSanta

    I'll look into that, I haven't used flood gates yet.
    meh, I strongly dislike metallurgy

    Nice idea. Mind me recommend beefing up the mod list with Calclavia's other mods? Atomic Science? ICBM? Resonant Induction?

    Do it @SatanicSanta. Nuke the pigmen. :p

    Atomic Science is useless without Uranium. I'll consider ICBM. Does Resonant Induction add worldgen?
