What's new in modded minecraft today?


Mod Developer
May 13, 2014
Version 2.77 of RFTools has been released with a few fixes:

  • Added proper syncing from server to clients in case the crafter is updated. Previously it was possible that a player could not see a new recipe that was set on the crafter by another player.
  • Fixed a visual glitch with the XP not updating after a teleport.
  • It is now possible to actually rename a dimension in the enscriber. Just put the realized dimension tab back in it and change the name. Note that this does notchange the name of the receiver that might be in that dimension. You have to do that manually.
  • Fixed a serious bug where shift-wrenching an RFTools machine will make it go away.
  • More work on the space projector. Not ready yet.

new day, new update, and today it's @ProfMobius with Prattle
ProfMobius said:
Prattle 0.0.9
  • ADDED : Config option to switch between 24h and am/pm timestamp notation.
  • ADDED : /prattle command will display a list of all the commands relative to Prattle.
  • FIXED : Missing chat messages from mods when starting the game.
  • FIXED : Changing the name of the chans in the config file shouldn't create duplicated channels anymore. #global & #local will be renamed properly. If you already changed the name of the global and local chans in your config, you should delete the file data\Prattle.dat in your world.
  • FIXED : Proper click handling in the chat window. Should fix broken link handling and broken username clicking.
  • FIXED : Replying to private messages when the username contains special formatting chars will not kick the user anymore.
  • API : 2 new events to play with. PrattleMouseEvent.ChatClick & PrattleMouseEvent.ChatHover. Those are triggered upon clicking or hovering some text in the chat window. They contain the corresponding element, the full chat line and the position or pressed mouse button.
  • API : Added a PrattleAPI class with some nice methods. It is now possible to query the currently opened channel for a player and send messages directly to a given channel.

and @XCompWiz with Mystcraft

and @superckl with BiomeTweaker
superckl said:
BiomeTweaker 0.7.49
  • Added more flexible ways of specifying biomes IDs. Check the wiki.
  • Added ability to disable forcing of color event calls. This will fix the issue with QuiverBows on servers if disabled.
  • Added a few custom BiomeTweakEvent for other mods to hook into.

and @Lomeli12 with Trophy Slots
Lomeli12 said:
Trophy Slots 1.2.3
  • Fixes disable slot rendering when the player has a potion effect
  • Fixes disable slot rendering in Applied Energistics machines
  • Locked slot buttons just use button id 0 now. They're disabled anyway, shouldn't really care if they share an id with another button if you can't even use them.
  • When the player picks up an item and it ends up in a locked slot, it will now see if there's an empty slot that it can go into first before dropping it, hopefully stopping people from dropping items off skyblocks when shift-clicking items to one's inventory.

Because lasers are awesome, doy.

Edit: quasi ninja'd by J, and as we all know, ninja's are also awesome.
Probably has some special functionality. Also, in case you hadn't noticed, LASERS ARE FUCKING COOL!

The beauty of Build-craft was its refinement. It didn't add on unnecessary content because it sounded cool. Furnaces have been done to death by other mods. If lasers are so cool then they should be used for cool laser purposes.

The beauty of BuildCraft is that it had a big ecosystem of mods working with it. Nowadays, that's dead, so we're trying to make up - and instead become an ecosystem of our own.

Assuming you're only playing with BuildCraft, which more and more people are, furnaces which take power are pretty useful. And it's time to do a fresh take on these anyway.

(No, we're not adding ore processing. Don't even try to ask.)

(And yes - laser furnaces were planned before I took up development. Much before, in fact.)
