What's new in modded minecraft today?

Just a new maintenance update of Not Enough Wands. This weekend (when there is no school :) ) my son will have time to implement a few new wands. But for now here is 0.0.2 of Not Enough Wands:

Version 0.0.2:
  • Added the ability to scale XP/RF usage for the capturing wand based on the strength of the mob. So capturing a stronger mob (like the wither) will require more XP or RF if you enable this in the config.
  • You can now configure the capturing wand to only allow passive or hostile mobs
  • Implemented a generic system to change modes for wands using the \ key (can be changed in key controls)
  • Swapping wand now uses the new mode key to toggle between the four wand mods: single, 3x3, 5x5, and 7x7.
  • The swapping wand can no longer swap bedrock and also added a config option to set a maximum hardness difference to prevent abuse.

New wands that are planned for this weekend are a builders wand that has undo functionality, a wand that can light up areas and probably a few defensive/offensive wands too.

Have fun!

My modpack Intro2Mods is published and working! Yay! :D
This modpack is a fairly simple concept. It is meant to allow experienced players to show people who have never played with mods how cool they are (since said new users also often don’t have very good computers, I kept the mod count as low as possible as well). It does this by including standard, well-loved mods from the tech, magic, and exploration “branches” of modded Minecraft, including Thermal Expansion, Buildcraft, Thaumcraft, Twilight Forest, and several other mods to help balance out the experience. No configs have been changed (except for Headcrumbs), so this pack is as “authentic” as possible.

Try it out with the noob of your choice! :)
(server download available on launcher, free/locally hosted server instructions in forum post)

Oh boy, it's our favorite mod GregTech with some updates finally now that the heat levels have subsided a bit in Germany.

[IMPROVED] The way Number NBTs are set inside GT Tools. There is no reason to use Long whenever the Numbers happen to be too small for it anyways, and since getLong() also returns values of Byte, Short and Integer NBTs, I save a few Bytes on that for the low durability Tools and similar.
[IMPROVED] The way Material Data is saved in NBTs being now by ID instead of by Name (unless the ID is -1, or it is an old Tag, in which cases it will still use the Names).
[FIXED] Worldgenerator sometimes ending up generating wrong Ores, because of a "break;" being at the wrong location. This was only really visible when the Worldgen Config has been used with a lot of Custom Veins.
[NERFED] GT Metal Crops and similar Rare Drop Crops growth speed to be about ten times slower than before.
[CHANGED] The Mini Nether Portal now uses Obsidian Sticks rather than Obsidian Blocks to be crafted.
[CHANGED] Sensors to now store the displayed and the set Value in two different Variables in order to make Mode switching better.
[ADDED] Dust Funnel to autocraft Dusts into the desired Size in a primitive way.
[ADDED] A way to override OreDictItemData from inside the Item itself. This can also fake OreDict Entries to some of my Systems. (now you can recycle "disabled" PrefixItems, which are not registered to the OreDict, like those now unobtainable Toolheads, when I nerfed some Materials)
[ADDED] Nether Brick Tools.

[IMPROVED] The NBT Key Names inside the MetaTool Class to be much shorter in order to save on sync. Old Names are ofcourse still supported, since there is a bunch of pre-existing Tools out there.
[FIXED] Exorbitant Durability on Angmallen and Hepatizon.
[FIXED] A rather huge Error in the Base TileEntity.
[FIXED] Steam Engines not being able to face upwards when placed without using a Wrench afterwards.
[ADDED] Grindstone for sharpening Tools. Needs 1 Sandstone Block for 4 sharpening processes. Also ofcourse has NEI Support.
[ADDED] Chisel Rightclick now turns Smooth Rocks (the double smelted ones) into Chiseled ones.
[ADDED] File Rightclick now turns regular Rocks into the Smooth ones.
[ADDED] Slabs for the GT Rocks. Placeable in all 6 Directions and with all MetaData Types. Crafted with Block + Saw (horizontal). Piston Pushable.
[ADDED] Reinforced Brick Versions of GT Rocks (crafted with a Brick Block and a Steel Rod). They are just more Blast Resistant and harder to mine.
[ADDED] Recycling for damaged vanilly Tools and Armors. You won't get all the Material out of it ofcourse, and pre-repairing the stuff gives you a vanilla bonus on durability and therefore Materials, so you should still try to fully repair stuff before melting it down.

The fact that the team behind Chisel has split and there are now two forks of Chisel is biting us again.

Glass Shards 1.4 and Ice Shards 1.2 (for Minecraft 1.7.10)
These versions should be compatible with both Cricket's and tterag's version of Chisel. The previous version would crash with the latter.
Unfortunately, fixing this made the code that much more ugly. If you use Cricket's version of Chisel, you shouldn't need to update, and in fact it's probably better if you don't.
Apart from that, there are only small internal changes.

I plan on changing the compatibility system in a way that makes it theoretically proof to changes on the other mods' side (unless they make world-breaking changes).

  • Mode key is now set to '=' by default.
  • A few tooltips have been fixed and updated.
  • When there is not enough room in the inventory to store the returned blocks (from swapping or building/want undo) they will be spawn in the world instead of being lost.
  • Various other small tweaks and fixes

As soon as it is approved you can download it here: http://www.curse.com/mc-mods/minecraft/235595-not-enough-wands#t1:other-downloads

I updated my modpack Intro2Mods to version 1.0.2
Added Simply Jetpacks by Tonius
Added WAILA by ProfMobius
Added Forestry by SirSengir
Added SirSengir, KingLemming, ProfMobius, and cpw11 to Headcrumbs
Configured Forestry to NOT generate it’s own copper or tin (so that there is only one type of copper/tin) and turned on retrogen in chunks generated in previous versions of this pack. Those are pretty much internal changes, so there’s nothing to worry about.

bad news everyone. my computer decided to die on me yesterday, so I had to take it to the shop.
currently it's still there and I've no idea what's broken, so I'm on my laptop right now.

this means that for the next few days I won't be able to do updates, as my laptop is not that good at handling alot of open tabs.
I don't know how long it'll take, but hopefully not very long.
