    Honestly not trying to be overly critical, just want to be helpful. If you press F1 you can clear your HUD and get rid of that huge shield for taking landscape screen shots.

    Ender IO's new grains of infinity can be automated with a block of bedrock (thank you, Chance cubes RNG), a vanilla dispenser with flint & steel inside, and a bibliocraft clock (not many seem to realize it can be set to emit a redstone signal or pulse, and the ticking can be turned off). Add a vacuum chest or similar and you don't have to stand there afk next to the fire.

    Maybe someday soon we'll see a pack with the new EnderIO in it? I know there must be some modpacks on Twitch already, but none of the FTB packs have added it in yet, to my knowledge - somebody please correct me if wrong. What pack are you playing, Mac? Your own?

    I've been doing my own thing for a while now. Right now I'm just messing around a bit while waiting for Thaumcraft 6 to make the jump, checking out some new toys & figuring out how to make up for the mods and features being left behind.

    I added EIO to my Direwolf 1.12 pack to play with it. It's quite cool. Just enough new stuff to make you have to reassess how you use the mod but not so much as to feel like they changed all the things.

    As for FTB adding to existing packs, I believe it is still listed as a Beta Mod, maybe even an Alpha. I would not expect to see it in any "Main stream" pack until it get out of Beta. Small Custom packs though will probably start appearing any day now.

    I felt the same way about Thermal Expansion in Horizons III - I hadn't experienced it since they made all those changes (upgrade kits, etc) and added a bunch of new machines and tools, and it was fresh and new enough for me to really enjoy it.

    Thanks for that explanation. As a simple end-user, I didn't realize, or consider, the fact it might still be in beta testing... but that explains perfectly why we haven't seen it placed into any of the big-name modpacks yet.

    I think it was just too late to the game, the kitchen sink packs are already out and the pack devs are busy fine tuning the quest and expert mode packs. Once those are out, they might go back and look at the latecomers, especially since Thaumcraft dropped last night for 1.12.2.

    Have you had chance to have a go with it yet? The change from wands to the Caster's Gauntlet is interesting!

    I checked it out a bit in 1.10.2, but didn't go very deep. I do like the new research mechanic. I'm just getting a game started after taking the time to find a seed I like, spawning on the edge of a magical forest.

    Ah nice, well I'm sure there are plenty of cool things to discover, so do let us know! :)

    Interesting bug in the current (as of yesterday) update of Thaumcraft. I can't throw salus mundus on the vanilla crafting table but I can throw it on the TiCo crafting table.

    Backstory on this: I set up a second watertower to power my Gendustry setup. Simple, uninterrupted, scale-able power. Through my entire playthrough, I have not had a squid spawn in my 'expected' squid pool, which was a carefully constructed 3x7x2 pool of still water below 'sea level'. I have had squids spawn in just about every single-source-block cobble-generator I have, in the irrigation channels for my crops (before I closed them off), and now - this.

    All you gotta do is re-purpose that structure as a sushi factory. Boom, problem solved!

    Sadly, they don't drop calamari, and I'm so close to done with Thaumcraft that my stock of ink sacs is going to be plenty. (Getting some affairs in order before I'm no longer of sound mind, then it's Advanced Golems and KAMI...)

    EDIT: Never mind - they do drop it. I just managed to misspell it in NEI after spelling it correctly here. o_O

    speaking of squids, i found out that calamari is one of the best early game food sources until you get a healing axe (which restores hunger at no price)

    I was living off of meat ingots for a long time - mostly because I had them after having to make a Pink Slime Crystal. Actually doing rather well in the 'normal' food department, too, considering how often my ungrateful farm animals glitch out of their nice safe pens. (Kill the escapees, breed the ones that stay in the pen.)

    I'm playing in VR using Vivecraft, and today I discovered that not only can you hold the bow sideways, it's actually easier to aim this way.

    I also discovered (from this thread, no less), that Ender IO has a 1.12 release.

    Direwolf20 has announced that EnderIO and Thaumcraft will be added to the next update of the DW20 pack in the next week or so.

    Been curious about this. I've run Win10 version in VR before, but how does Vivecraft compare? And are you still able to play modpacks?
