I don't think we saw this Olympia news:
Latest news: Block count now sits at 53,217 and Item count is at 1,253. This is thanks mostly to several thousand flavours of chests, mushrooms, and flowers. Pictures to come soon.

Next big thing to be added: Large Doors (3 blocks wide and 4 blocks tall)

Just as an FYI: I just added 1 additional metal - that is to say I added ONE line of code, and the current block count is now 53,833. 1 metal flavour = 616 blocks.

EDIT: added another combination of chests, we're at 63,437

Alchemy lab. It doesn't do anything yet, but it'll look pretty!

I don't see why it wouldn't support a texture pack, like any other mod - just bear in mind how many textures you're going to have to replace...

Alchemy lab model is done. No variations or anything, just a single block all on its lonesome:

Next up: Jewellers Workbench and Writing Desk: another pair of devices that don't DO anything yet, but will in the future.

Jeweller's Workbench work in progress

My partner says I have a problem: I like blocks that float, spin slowly (preferably with two parts going in opposite directions) and go "fworp fworp".

New block to be added. The center sphere will be a crystal, the outer container will be metal. This is in honor of Homeworld Remastered coming out yesterday. It's called a "core" and will probably end up as a power source or a crafting interface of a very specialized nature or something. Who knows.

Don't forget the Avernian gate in my first post. Like I said: my touchstone for a lot of the higher-tech looking stuff is an old game calle Xenogears. It has an awesome blending of low and high tech that is incredibly appealing. I'd love to see someone do a Solaris build.

On that note, the high-tech-looking metal blocks got a makeover.

I have hit one problem with TESRs: Depth Sorting. I need to find a way to get the TESRs to render in the order from farthest-from player to closest to player. I saw someone did it, but I haven't adapted it yet.
First, the Core, then small chests, then the depth sorting issue, then I start cleaning up code and adding in proper way to do things that aren't short-cut-like. I should probably add some creative tabs as well. Then I start re-implementing my decoration system, which you're going to love.

... I approve of this grammar-correcting jibe. Yes good.


Between the new cores, and a slew of even more I've added, we're up to 66,785 blocks and 1,261 items.

I finally cracked how Azanor did it:

Oh, and something else I've been poking around with...

new day, new update, and today it's @Vazkii with Botania
Vazkii said:
Botania R1.5 167 & R1.5 168
  • Added a Word Counter thing that gets written to the log saying how many words the Lexica Botania has. Don't ask me why, I just felt like it >.<
  • Added feature creep to the Lexica Botania in the form of a "View Online" button as well as a Lookup History (similar to your browser's history).
  • Fixed a crash with looking at a block that doesn't have a mod registered to it somehow with the Lexica Botania.
  • Fixed Dayblooms and Nightshades not showing the particles for diminishing returns.
  • Fixed the Pure Daisy having the wrong icon in the lexicon index.
  • Fixed the recipe for Metamorphic Stone Bricks outputting 1 rather than 4.
  • Removed debug print in the lexicon.
  • Sparks no longer emit particle beams when placed in the world, they still do when right clicked with a wand.
  • The Terra Shatterer can now mine Ardite and Cobalt from Tinkers Construct as well as other ores of harvest level 4.
  • [API] Added failsafe for WikiHooks.getWikiFor
  • [API] Increased TERRASTEEL armor material's harvest level to 4.
  • [API] The passive generation on SubTileGenerating will now only work in !World.isRemote. Furthermore, overrides of canGeneratePassively() should no longer check for World.isRemote.
  • [API] Increased version number to 35.
  • Fixed a (recurring) crash with the Gaia Guardian that would happen if there were no players around it. Naturally this only affected servers, but it's a big problem so I decided to make a build to fix it. And it was also crashing forgecraft :T

and @BluSunrize with Witching Gadgets
BluSunrize said:
Witching Gadgets 1.0.2
  • added a config option to disable clusters
  • added an alternate use for Perditio Infused Oval Gems, for when mirrors are disabled

and @WayofTime with Blood Magic
WayofTime said:
Blood Magic 1.3.1-4 & 1.3.1-5

  • Improvements to the copy button
  • Now copies sub-commands of groups and keeps their connections

  • CHANGE: The background of the seed portrait in the journal is now the required soil
  • CHANGE: You can now specify any block as a specific soil for custom crops
  • CHANGE: Adding cross-crop sticks won't clear weeds anymore
  • CHANGE: Overhauled the way mutation requirements work: instead of setting specific requirements for mutations, you now have to set specific requirements for growing.

  • CHANGE: NEI will show the needed soil and required base block (if any) for mutations
  • CHANGE: Potatoes sometimes drop poisonous potatoes now
  • CHANGE: Register seeds and their produce as seed&lt;Name&gt; and crop&lt;Name&gt; in the ore dictionary
  • CHANGE: Spreading from only 1 crop will not cause any stat increases (unless toggled in the config)
  • CHANGE: Added a difficulty for increasing stats in the config. 1: all surrounding crops will affect stat increase. 2: Only parent/identical crops will affect stat increase. 3: Same as 2, but other crops will affect stat inheritance negatively
