NOTE: Anyone arriving here from Google or Twitter or some other external site, this server is whitelisted for contributing DakkaDakka members only. If you just sign up to DakkaDakka only for the Minecraft server, you won't get whitelisted.

Feed the Beast is a selection of Modpacks for Minecraft that is actively supported by the developers of the mods that go into it.

I have a server running the FTB Revelation mod pack.

To get into the game, you need to do a few things:
If you haven't done so already, ask to be on the Dakka Minecraft whitelist at this thread here. I'm not currently maintaining separate whitelists.

Go to the Feed the Beast site
Choose either the new Twitch Launcher (Windows or Mac) or the Legacy FTB Launcher (Linux, Windows or Mac)


Twitch Launcher:
Click the Minecraft tab, then BROWSE FTB MODPACKS
Move the mouse over the Revelation modpack and click Install
After the pack has installed, click Play!

FTB Launcher:
Start the FTB Launcher and choose Revelation from the pack list on the left
Click Launch
It will download the pack, install it and launch the game

Once the game is loaded, click Multiplayer
Click Add Server
Enter any name you like
Enter the server address ftb.darkinnit.com
Enjoy!

The FTB pack mods are a lot more demanding on your computer than plain Minecraft, so if you're having issues with framerate or odd random hangs, make sure to close any background programs (particularly web browsers). You may even find you have to turn off Vsync or switch down to Fast graphics or turn off smooth lighting to get acceptable performance if you don't have a supercharged PC.

Usually outgoing ports aren't blocked, but if yours are, you need to open outgoing TCP 25585. You shouldn't need to open any incoming ports unless you're hosting a server yourself.

Quoting the FAQ here:


You're an OP can you give me items?

Yes I can, but no I won't. It's not fair on the other players who've painstakingly mined their resources. If you want endless items, you can play creative mode either on single player or on another server. The Dakka servers are survival servers.

I had 99 diamond on me and walked into a dark forest/fell in a cave and died, can I have my stuff back?

The S in SMP stands for Survival. If that stuff was precious, you should be careful about where you take it. As above, unless there are highly unusual circumstances involved, I will not give back items due to death, accident or other mishaps. So don't go venturing near lava in a full diamond suit of armor etc etc.

But it was server lag/glitch that killed me!

Once you've been playing the server long enough to get precious items, you should have encountered more than enough lag and glitches to be wary and to keep your items safe. However, in some cases I may return some items.

The "in some cases" there applies to things like that time the Twilight Forest portal put you in a wall and suffocated you. That wasn't your fault, but the layout of the Nexus, so I returned your items then.

These claims of "lag", I have no way to verify. All I can see is that you seem to be the only one crying lag so very often, which indicates it is your problem. If it's appearing as if the whole game freezes, or you have framerate stutters, that's your graphical settings are too high. Try turning off v-sync, smooth lighting and set fast graphics. If your framerate is fine but mobs appear to teleport around, then that is internet lag. Check your bandwidth at http://www.speedtest.net, and if you have shared internet, see if it's better when no-one else is using the internet. Other obvious things like, "don't watch streaming videos while trying to play" also apply.

Yeah, I'll do the run to use my gun to put it back, It's a lot easier in quantum I'm guessing
Also, was just derping around and BBrotherwood tells me there is a sign saying Pimpdidley, Grandmaster of the Triarii.
are you suggesting that you rule over the rest of us?

Post by: The Dark Apostle


I don't rule, but I am the founder. And grandmaster is a much better title than founder


Feed The Beast Revelation Server (Minecraft) @ 2013/02/16 22:18:47


Post by: Anvildude


Grandmaster also implies rulership or a 'greater'ness. Unless you're suggesting that Air is better than the other elements...

Founder works fine, buddy.

Air isn't better, lord of air and grandmaster are unrelated. It's just the fact that I'm the founder, if your not going to call founder a dramatic and cool name why don't we call the lords "the guy of earth" or "the guy of fire"

Also, we have a new "player". Well, he isn't exactly a player... but he acts similar to one.

His name is Leonardo. He is a chunk loading, mining turtle and he most definitely isn't named after one of the Ninja turtles nor is this farm business making me crazy, I swear. His name may be spelt wrong if he tells you it, but he's learning...

1: Awesome architecture- this is one thing he's right about. With the cooperation of members, it'll be possible to build structures larger and more complex than is feasible on one's own.

2: Sharing of ingredients- We're probably not going to end up being a full-on Marxist commune, where everybody owns everything- however, membership means you'll at least help other members with their projects- if they need some Air Shards, or Essense of Fractum, you'll be expected to lend a hand if you have any spare.

3: Defense Organization- we'll protect our own- this includes putting together war parties to do things like hunt Ender Dragons, Whithers, Nagas, Lichz, and other nasties. Also, if you do find that you've died in a hostile area, other Accord members are obliged to escort you back to retrieve your stuff, assuming it's survived, or at least provide some basic materials to help get you back on your feet in the case of catastrophy.

4: Facilities- In each of the Lords' Demesnes, there will be full-fledged Thaumaturgic laboratories, Alchemic facilities (when EE3 is out), Enchantment Libraries (with spare Enchanted Books), farms for supplies and food, and possibly even Grinders, open to use by Accord signatories.

There will be some rules, however, if you're going to have a title or full access to the facilities

Rules:

1: No Feats of Engineering or Technical Prowess in any of the towers or fortresses- that's the Red Tower near 0,0, as well as the future 5 Lord's Demesnes. No machinery, no engines, and please take off your Tech armour before entering. Don't use Nanosabers, Mining Lasers, or Jetpacks on Accord grounds. No Pipes, no Cables (possibly decorative, but most likely not). This doesn't forbid things from tech mods like IC or Redpower such as panels or ore blocks, however, which are decorative or inactive. Just no use of tech (wearing armour counts as use). All members (other than Lords, in their specific Thaumaturgic/Alchemic Demesnes) may do whatever they like in their own houses and bases- but public places are Magic Only.

2: Don't Hoard- as it says. If someone needs something, and you have some of it, be willing to give it up, knowing that they'll do the same for you. This is to discourage thievery and encourage an atmosphere of positive learning.

3: Control your Flux- Do NOT let Flux get out of hand. We will NOT be using Flux as a weapon- any instance of Flux getting bad enough that it causes actual issues is BAD, and will be dealt with accordingly- in addition, if anyone not in the Accords is fooling with Thaumcraft and causes Flux issues, the Accord members will be asked to assist in the cleanup. We have Thaumcraft because there is no longer any Taint. Don't let Flux get to a similar point.

4: Don't Attack fellow Accord Signatories- this is, of course, not in effect with mutually agreed upon duels, but in general day-to-day life, don't start nothin', and there won't be nothin'.



All these rules and conditions are of course subject to change, according to the majority opinion. However, the Accord (or Triurgiiiiiiiiii, as DarkApostle/Pimpdidley likes to call it- doesn't make much sense to me) is pretty much just there as an excuse to be all "Hur, Magic's better than Tech" and to build awesome, magic-only structures. If you don't' want to abide by the rules, well, that's alright, but it also means you can't join in. Anyone who wants the title of Lord really needs to uphold these ideals the most of all, if possible.


But yeah- we'll try to keep this as civil as possible, please.

Right now, all you need for a Lordship is to be the first to ask, and to have researched and created your Tool of Office, and learned all the ins and outs of using it. If someone wants to claim a Lordship in the future, they need to do the same, and demonstrate an equal or greater understanding of the Thaumaturgic processes and Alchemical formulae (as well as Potionmaking and Enchanting) as the current Lord; they must also pass an inspection of their workplace, showing that they don't release unnecessary Flux into the world in their area- once this has been determined, there will be a ritual duel for the tile, using the relevant Tool of Office.


I'll probably make these more purdy, and have something (a written book or sign wall) in the Red Tower, but for now, if you're interested in a Magecraft support network, look no further than the Triurgiiiiiiiirieingeiiueringe/ Mages Accord/Thaumaturgic Creed/whatever you wanna call it.

It came back on it's own due to the scheduled restart. It's started doing those crashes since I added the map, not sure if there's something the map tries to do that crashes it. Will have to look into it at some point when I have a moment.

Whilie I don't understand what that has to do with portal guns, I liked matapata's idea of using the mining age for fighting the wither. I'd just say not so close to the Nexus next time, a spawn camping Witherboss is never a good thing.

Bottom of a quarry was a good idea too, but all the current quarries are still too close to the Nexus for a Witherboss fight at the moment. As long as it's out of "far render distance" range of the nexus (and then a bit further), I think that would be ok.

IIRC, you have to kill a Witherboss to get a star, a necessary portal gun component.

So the Direwolf pack has been updated to version 5.1.0.

However, I don't think I'll have time to do the update tonight, so stick on 5.0.1 for now if you want to be able to continue to connect to the server.

I'll try to take a look at it tomorrow.

Looks like it crashed when trying to shutdown for the scheduled restart and then couldn't restart because it was still running but crashed.

Should be back now. All these crashes have started since I added the map, and there is a new version available now, so I'll try upgrading that at some point. I'm also going to see if I can update the server to the Direwolf20 v5.1.1 modpack later this evening, so there may be more downtime later on when I do that.

I currently do not have access to my ftb launcher, and a quick google search yields me no information.

Yes.

and it made me realise that they serve no purpose at all. They don't even actually make an explosion, you just get a framerate freeze and then a large crater. There are other more suitable videogames for fun with kersplosions.

So crafting nukes is disabled. Any you've already crafted should be rather severely nerfed if you try to set them off. Although as I haven't tested the nerf, I'd recommend not trying one out anywhere precious.

We at the Red Tower are doing an upgraded Chicken Farm- it ought to work quite a bit better than the spawn one once it gets running, hopefully.

Will do more to make it better, as well.

Go to spawn and there is a string farm/cotton farm that gives you string. take some seeds and make a farm with it.
It is a fanastic way of avoiding mob killing.

Also. I'm beginning work in my libarary in making a large amount of alumentium. Seeing at how powerful it is. I need some donations to create gunpowder into sulfur so i can create sulfur torches which are quick economic. one sulfur + a stick = 8 sulfur torches + aluminum = 1 aluminum torch. (i need to test to see if they last underwater before go any further.)

The enderpouch doesn't work properly instead of taking it from a chest like thing. It takes it from any mechinical machine like the machine currently being used to build tunnels.

I don't think that's a bug. It sounds more like you have your Ender Pouch linked to the Ender Chest that the tunnel bore is using. For it to work the way you intend, you need to make an Ender Chest with the colour code of your choosing and then right click it with the Ender Pouch:
http://ftbwiki.org/Ender_Storage
The EnderPouch is a craftable item offering remote access to any EnderChest via right-clicking while holding the pouch. The EnderPouch may be initially crafted with the desired color of wool; right-clicking on an EnderChest with an EnderPouch will synchronize the color code of the pouch to match the color code of the chest, replacing the previous color code of the pouch.


Also, we shouldn't need to "reserve" Ender Chest colour combinations, as you can now make an EnderChest private to you by right clicking its lock with a diamond.

Because i believe it would be good for the community to have two new dimensions that are all radically different. An underground world and a hell fortress would be cool. And then an endless stronghold world would also work.

I am collecting mostly to get ready for the hydra. I just need to get enchantments on my armor and such. (already have two armor that have repair 2.)

There's a nether fortress in the nether right by spawn:

Not sure why you'd need another dimension just for the same thing. Blazes spawn everywhere in nether fortresses now too, so less need to worry if someone breaks a blaze spawner. Also if you did want to find another one, just make a Mystcraft linking book to it so you don't have to travel. All of the above negates the need for another dimension.

Endless underground worlds were rumoured to be buggy due to interaction with Redpower marble generation. Also as ore gen is based on height of around 70? and below, wouldn't the upper levels all just be plain stone?

I don't need them. I have a zepher blade with sharpness 4 and disjunction 3 and vorpal 2. I actually rarely use the sword. I use my sapphire blades more often. I plan on making another zepher blade hopefully this time with repair. (Which is really needed for a good weapon and good armor.)
I can give away thamium because it is pretty insanely cheap. 8 nuggets + 2 magic enchanted tables = 1 thaumium ignot

Also if you did want to find another one, just make a Mystcraft linking book to it so you don't have to travel. All of the above negates the need for another dimension.

Endless underground worlds were rumoured to be buggy due to interaction with Redpower marble generation. Also as ore gen is based on height of around 70? and below, wouldn't the upper levels all just be plain stone?


Thats kind of the point of an underground world. Also for a difficult place. Though the endless strongholds sounds like a cool idea.

Also how do i make mysticraft worlds?


I'm sorry, I don't understand, what do you mean by "That's"? What's kind of the point of an underground world?

Now you're also talking about Strongholds. Do you mean Strongholds or Nether Fortresses?

I'm welcome to suggestions about ages, but I still don't see the point of a Nether Fortress age (the Nether exists, just use that?), nor a cave world when the ores will still only spawn at 70 and below (just use the mining age for the ores or the nether for a permaroof).

I've disabled the creation of Mystcraft ages because each age is an entire new world to store and load on the server and there's no way to limit it rather than "off" or "on", so it's "off". You can still try out creating as many ages as you like in a singleplayer world.

Have you given people a chance to take an interest? I've not seen any other posts here about there being a combat force of any sort to be the leader of, just a pledge to help kill the Hydra.

The fact that nobody else has taken an interest may stem from the belief that there was nothing there to claim an interest in to start with; at least, there was definately no allusion to a combat force of any sort.

Someone stole 19 diamonds out of my chest in the Mining Age. Assorted other ores may have also gone missing, but unfortunately I haven't been able to catalogue these yet.

If everything stolen re-appears then no further questions will be asked.

Le Sigh.

Apostle. Quiet.


Still don't know where you got the word "Triariiiiiiii", but it really isn't the right one. Pentumverate would work better, but for now, I'll continue to call it the Accords.


The point of an Underground Dimension is that, unlike the Mining Age, it would have massive, amazing cave systems. Seems like this wouldn't cause too many bugs from Marble, as Marble replaces Air- the caves would give it places to spawn. It'd be for those of us who like living fully underground, but can never seem to find enough mountains for the really impressive caverns.


If you really want Blaze spawners, get a Soul Shard and a Vile Sword with Soul Stealer on it, and start farming. A Level 5 Blaze Soul Shard allows you to spawn Blazes in the overworld in vast amounts- replace the zombie spawner at the Nexus with the Blaze Shard, and the water will harm them, while the combat turtles will kill them for experience. Ridiculously fast exp and blaze rod farming, as shown in Direwolf20's LP.

The only way to get Repair (and many other Thaumcraft enchants) is to enchant a Thaumcraft item- you can't get enchanted books of Potency or Repair- it must be placed directly on the item.


The Accords is willing to help with boss fights, however, as we use magic only, and Thaumcraft research cannot be shared between members (as IC and BC tools and equipment can), we have a much slower advancement to endgame, and so will be of little real help for a while yet. Don't rush so fast to slaughter all the unique things in the world- make cool fortresses, participate in community projects, collect a library of enchanted books and make gear that's perfect for what you want to do- you don't need to kill Uniques just to kill Uniques. Farm for Soul Shards- get some Zombie grinders going with Combat Turtles to have an infinite iron source. Look into things like Dark Iron and XyCraft. Be creative.


Also, for all you using Thaumcraft- you'd better have Tallow Golems and Warded Jars and Vis filters set up in your crafting areas- or else all this heavy mystical manufacturing is going to be dumping a ton of Flux into the environment- this'll cause Wisps, but it'll also cause freak weather patterns, mystical sicknesses and other unpleasantness (do you really want Giant Zombies and 5 day thunderstorms? Or undead mobs that don't burn up during the day?)

Triarii, comes from the 3rd legion of Rome, who were normally pure-bred Romans and descended from the richest of Rome, also in the 40k universe they were the 3rd great company of legions and in the thousand sons were a squad of VERY good mages/phsykers who helped ariman (is that his name?) to summon the rubric. That's why I named us the triarii we will end the taint and begin the golden age of a perfect magical world....

Protip: Don't insult the moderators, even in sarcasm.

Shall we go through this? Alright then. I've got a while to think about this post as I write this.

No-one ever had such defined boundaries between magic and science before you. I don't care about that boundary. I use what I feel like. The reason I have made little use of the Magical mods is that I have not looked into them, and what little I have seen of Thaumcraft is not compelling enough to make me do anything else. It's high risk at very little reward, with much of Thaumcraft being somewhat random (from what I have seen) I have no desire to make use of a mod that requires as much time and resources to get less results. I am sure I'll dip into it as and when I wish to.
You're hardly giving it a good image, rambling about the accomplishments of your useless order, only for Anvildude to correct you and show what is really happening. It saddens me that I have to tar him with the same brush.

The Dark Apostle wrote:

Right, most of this has been covered. One point I have to argue with is: "... takes considerably more mental prowess"
If you're anything like the average Minecraft player, you learnt most of what you know from Wikis, and typing into a search bar doesn't count as high mental prowess.

The fact that the FTB server is plagued with massive thunderstorms a lot of the time, at least at my home (sadly next door to yours, where all of the magic takes place) tells me that you are not very good at magic. Anvildude says that freak weather patterns are a consequence of shoddy Thaumaturgy, and massive rainstorms are hardly normal. Luckily for me, I use Redpower windmills for Blulectric power, so rain is not a bad thing.

I don't moan about the "us", I have no issue with a group of like-minded people gathering and doing what they enjoy on a Minecraft server. It's you I have an issue with.
Creating this fantastic order of people who aren't allowed to use parts of the mod, with rules that you never set down, and complaining when people broke them- with no knowledge of them. Thankfully, Anvildude had the wit to post them on the forums.
Asking that people be banned for accidentally killing you.
Begging for free stuff off of everyone.

If this comes across as rude to anyone other than The Dark Apostle, I apologise. If it comes across as rude to him, then tough.

Sorry I was in a rush when i typed that. So I am fine with that. Just sounded like a cool idea in my head.. ( i Also have no idea on how to use mysticraft. So its all quite foriegn to me. I have mostly messed around with thaumcraft and a few of the other mods Starting a soulstone stuff so I can improve our zombie spawner exp thing.)

And strongholds (From the overworld) would be interesting seeing as they are so incredibly rare.

I'm just trying to come up with additional ideas for ages to explore.

Like an End World (instead of that small end that we get from fighting the ender dragon.)

And Ever since I only got onto the server like five days ago. I had no idea about the blazes doing that. I'm still quite new to the mods and everything.
I'm extremely sorry for that I had no idea on the blazes or the nether fortress.

Also on the tirari issue please stop the arguing its kind of a stupid issue. I posted about it. Only got a few responses. It would be good idea to kill the hydra and the other bosses in the twilight forest. It seems like a grand idea and a community driven idea. That was the only reason i offered that.

I'm all up for fighting bosses, but if it actuallys causes everyone to petty insults from a fellow teammate. (not saying everyone has But seriously dude grow up its a game) anyway I will be back to rewrite part of this. (so take this with a grain of salt) Till then mates.

I recommend a macerator as your first port of call, as well as the obvious rubber farm. If you're a magicky guy, then Thaumcraft will be your friend. Otherwise, it plays a lot like Tekkit, but without the massively OP EE2. EE3 does let you transmute, but in a much more limited form.

You could possibly set up an automatic transmutation system based around a Soul Shard spawner, with Combat Turtles, a good Pipe system (or Golems), Automatic Crafting Tables, and a mining whatever connected to a cobble generator (or use one of those fancy cobblemaking machines). The Minium stone requirement means you need "Player Kills" on mobs for rare drops- but with Combat Turtles, they count as Player Kills- you could actually use a level 4 or 5 Zombie Soul Shard spawner and collect the resulting iron as well, and use that for some Thaumcraft alchemy.



Also, the fancy Potions thing is in it now- using glass panes for the advanced potion vials.

"And Lo!" He wrote; adrenaline fuelling his furious scribbles, "It was with great excitement that I happened upon my final clue - the final answer to all my thaumic theories. What was I missing? Why would it not work? How will I ever complete my studies? Who? What? When? Why? Where? How? All of them, answered in one fell swoop. How could I have been so blind before? With trembling hands, I traversed this most sacred text, hungry for answers to questions asked, questions unasked, and questions yet unthought.
"I know what you are thinking, 'what sort of repository of arcane knowledge could possibly exist when so many before myself have spent their lives searching and found nothing?'. I will tell you now, that this knowledge was right beneath our crooked noses the entire time. The bushy moustache of intelligence long grown used to and forgotten, save those times when soup is eaten and you discover half of it still residing upon your upper lip for hours to come.
"What I have discovered here has existed for inumerable ages. Penned by sages orders of magnitude wiser than you and I could hope to be, it acts as a beacon to those who seek answers, but only if they first ask the right questions. I asked my question: What IS thaumaturgy? And thus, I found my answer: "Thaumaturgy... which giveth certain order to make strange works, of the sense to be perceived and of men greatly to be wondered at." - Mathematical Preface to Euclid's Elements (1570), John Dee.

There is a transmutation turtle (turtle+minium stone)

From memory it requires minium shards to power the transmutes, though it could have changed since I last used them

And no mare lag/chicken generator means hopefully I'll have more than 7 fps! (I'm sure I has 30fps before the chicken generator was made...)

For transmuting, Equivalent Exchange 3 has the same exchange rates for blocks of items that it does for the inogts/gems. This means that you can transmute 9 times more stuff, if you block up items. An item from Factorization does that automatically, I think it's a packager or something like that. So rather than the Minium stone having 1521 uses (I think) it has 9 times that many. But one stone will last a fair while- we're still on our first one.

I tested it out for a while (before I made the server available to you guys) but didn't like it for several reasons.

1) It affects more than just creepers, ghasts can't break netherrack anymore - the nether is supposed to be a crumbly dangerous place.
2) With even just iron armor, creepers become a non-issue, just let them explode and ignore them. Plain zombies are more dangerous as they at least attack continuously until you kill them. Instead of turning off mobgriefing, might as well just disable creepers, but as far as I'm aware, it's not possible, yet.
3) While I love to see the exposed workings of complex machines, there should be at least some risk, you should need to make some defences of some kind. (See spawn - it's completely ring fenced and lit and I've been patching any holes other people leave behind. It's not 100% mob proof, but it's good enough).

The mega-build age was going to be my compromise on still having mob-griefing on. It was going to be an entire mooshroom biome age, so there would be no hostile mobs. However, the way Thaumcraft creates flat lands is it takes an average of the biomes usual height, and apparently mooshroom biomes are usually mountains, so it made it really high, leaving not a lot of room for the "mega-builds". I tried using a "mooshroom-shore" biome modifier instead, but that just made the endless ocean you see if you go there now.

I'm planning to try messing about with the agedata.dat file on a test world to see if I can trick it to do a low flatlands with land instead of ocean, when I have time.

I know it's not just the iridium, but the iridium is probably the most tedious part of it. Are the 15 stacks Tin ore? Or to tin dust? Because I can do 7.5 stacks of Tin dust pretty easily if you meant ore.

nodes are found all over the world. Hollow hills, silver trees or randomly disperised. They are the source of magic and power for thaumturges


This also shows. Please do not plant silverwood trees.... Without investigation it would be good to let us handle it so we don't have something like this happen. (this also causes more issues such as wisps spawning, giant zombies spawning, more thunderstorms and many more things. (I know it was an issue but seriously this seriously destroyed the environment.

Planting heaps of silverwoods wont always be a good way to make a massive node either, I think if the node is under 250 aura and it combines with the silverwood pure node you can end up with a smaller node sometimes.


I think maybe you will have to move your base, or set up a magic crafting secondary base where you can just go to build things.

Nodes can be moved but that is pretty high level thaumaturgy and I think it requires a nether star.

I think maybe you will have to move your base, or set up a magic crafting secondary base where you can just go to build things.

Wasn't me that did it. Was a science guy. He didn't know what he was doing.

Okay, I miscaclulated and I need about a stack more of tin ore, perhaps two to be on the safe side. If you're able to provide it in dust form (so 2-4 stacks of dust) then it saves me having to macerate it all, and 2-4 stacks of bars would be the preferable option.

I can provide fair payment.

The nodes around spawn disappeared in the first week. It has nothing to do with planting trees. I think someone is overreacting by the sounds of things. Nobody panic.

Yes you can't plant silverwood trees in spawn because there is no aura. I have been slowly bringing a node closer to spawn by planting a silverwood tree slightly closer to spawn each time, so that when the nodes merge, it moves slightly closer. Yes it's going to take a while.

I said that people wanting to use Thaumcraft would be better to spread out, but eh, if you don't listen you don't listen.

Thaumcraft has its bugs at the moment - nodes disappearing and golems falling through the world. If you can put up with these without complaining, feel free to go ahead playing it, but if it's a problem for you, then don't invest so much time in it, because it is a huge time and resource sink.

Agreed. So Thats why I'm burning down my house and moving on. :/

Wasn't in panic mode. Just more of "Ah Crap. Not again."
But at least this time it won't take me three weeks to get back to camp. Which also means the mage accords might need to move its home base as it's aura will most likely be drained.

Thus far I have at least 12 back packs with almost everything important inside them (ores and ignots)
So I might need to find a new home that is hopefully something to do with fire or earth. (so a tree might work)

Whelp. Speaking as possibly one of the only sane members of the Arcane Accords (I think I'll keep that name...), I will do my best to solve some misconceptions.


First- it was not, to my knowledge, anyone in the Accords that planted the saplings. They were surrounding the volcano by spawn, that (I think) 4ourswords lives in- the one with all the buildcraft stuff. I'm not certain who planted them, but it was not me, no Pimpdidley, nor Stormwarriors, nor a few others.


Second- cutting down a Silverwood tree does NOTHING about the Node. The Nodes are there to stay, until they merge or randomly vanish. Too bad.

Third- Nodes provide Vis to an area's Aura. The way this works is as follows:

Area has 50 Vis in the Aura. Someone uses a wand or something, which takes 10 vis from the Aura. The closest node now has 40/50 Vis- other Nodes around it then send some of their Vis to that one, replenishing it to 50/50, so those other Nodes each have (if it was 2 other nodes) 45/50 Vis. Those get replenished by other Nodes, which will each have, say, 48/50, and so on and so forth. This process- the voids in the Nodes, the movement of Aura, all that- can cause Flux.

Flux is absorbed by your local Node. Flux is what happens anytime you Infuse something or Brew something in your Crucible-.

You have aspects on everything you put into a Crucible. Say you're making Thaumium ingots. Thaumium requires Metallo and Praecanto. Metallo's easy- throw some Iron Nuggets in. Praecanto is harder- so you use Chiseled Sandstone. This has both Praecanto and Solum. Solum is not used in the process of making Thaumium, so when you make that ingot, however much Solum you had tossed in your Crucible is now released into the Aura- this is Flux, now. Arcane Alembics capture Flux, as can Tallow Golems with Phials- however, almost nobody has been using either of those things, and I'm certain they haven't been using them in the quantities required to keep any Flux from getting out.

So, everyone with full Thaumium armour, everyone with Wands and Tools and Boots and all those other 'cool' things- you've all been contributing, unless you were using a full Thaumic Workshop setup, which I know nobody was. Darkinnit only just got 4 Arcane Alembics set up at Spawn, even.

I know I'm not innocent either, but I've attempted to limit my impact- I only have a single set of Thaumaturgist's Robes, a Wand of the Apprentice (haven't upgraded) and a single Wand of Excavation. I've created maybe a total of 20 Flux. Others, I'm certain, have created probably levels in the hundreds.

Back to what Flux does. Aura Nodes absorb local Flux- but they don't like it. Flux'ed Nodes are all lightning-y and purple, and they want to get rid of the Flux. So they create Wisps, or generate Storms, or give people sicknesses, or spawn giant Zombies. When any of those things happen, the Flux levels in the Nodes goes down. Eventually they'll rid themselves of all Flux, and be back to being Pure.

Flux does not affect Vis levels (to my knowledge) and Vis levels do not affect Flux. The only reason more silverwood trees can help is that it spreads the Flux around more Nodes- and every Node has a threshold of Flux it can hold and purify without releasing it as Wisps or Storms or whatever.- that, and they provide more Vis, faster, to an area, so you can do more enchanting faster, without having to wait for the local Node to fill from further Nodes- you can draw from any/all of the local Nodes, and they refill each other.



The only way Silverwood trees help is if they're surrounding the place the Flux is being caused! So all you TechHeads that aren't using Thaumcraft- you have no business with Silverwood trees- having Aura Nodes near you merely means that the effects of the Flux discharges will be closer, when they happen.

All you Thaumaturgists? LEAVE. The reason the Red Tower is where it is is because that's close to 0,0. Everyone else who's using Thaumcraft seriously should go at least 1000 blocks away. Use Linker books and Nether travel and Speed potions and Boots of the Traveller and stuff to get back to spawn faster. If you need local Thaumic resources or are just dabbling, use the stuff at Spawn or the eventual setup that will be at the Red Tower- these will both have the proper setup to prevent serious Flux escape or Vis drain. Otherwise, you're gonna continue to have a dozen people all draining and corrupting the same 2 or 3 Nodes, and we'll continue to have problems.


If you don't listen right, I'll sic Pimpdidley on you. Booga Booga. (with Darkinnit's permission, of course).

Just want to add to that that nodes do recharge vis - slowly, and that silverwood trees create "pura" nodes that eliminate flux - also slowly.

It takes time.

So don't think just because you have a couple of silverwood trees you can go nuts.

Completely agree. I will move with all my items. wish I could make some golems to carry stuff with me.

Plus when I got my thaumium i got mostly stuff like the arcane work bench. Which has a small possible chance of spawning a witch. Which thankful Has not happened yet. But i've also discharged the local flux by doing certain things. (like crystal clusters if i remember correctly)

Post by: frostoman


you'll all have to excuse me cause it's the first ever post i have made in a forum... i just read them

it was me who planted the silverwood trees and i have been banned because of the ordeal. The official reason for my banning is duping but that is ambiguous in its self as it is not a rule as i was acting withing the confines of the game. (which has [to my knowledge] always been allowed i.e that crazy decorated stone wall piston glitch)

I decided to take the matters into my own hands because me and 4oursword set up shop in the volcano before the tower was built so close (you guys were warned about building there and how close it was to us) and the terms that were generally agreed upon was that you me and 4 were not to feel the negative effects of thaumcraft.
i had to do something about how to prevent the persistent storms because i was sick of building anything outside for me to get killed by the mobs not despawning.
after asking the thaumcraft people about how to remove the 'bad stuff' they all agreed upon one thing: silverwoods.

so i set off finding them.

after a while i found 7 saplings when dark said i would need about 60. So assuming the situation was so bad that i couldn't get out of the house on most [minecraft] days, i decided i would dupe them.

I understand this was not in the spirit of game, but i personally believe that it is no less in the spirit of the game than someone moaning to an admin to sort out someone else's mess.

the reason i surrounded the volcano was because the response i got from you guys was that they had an area of effect and I just wanted the storms and odd wisp to stop.

I understand the consequences of what i have done but i do believe that no one had anticipated the extent of the damage caused and thus the situation has been a learning curve to all

and for the record, I'm very sour about all this, and believe my banning was unjust and simply an act of 'I'm pissed off lets get rid of him' as i did not break a single rule of the server.

of course i'll answer all questions and stuff though.

I said this before in the PM, but the banning has nothing to do with the aura and is solely to do with the cheating items into your inventory.

The decorative stone block glitch was not duping (it required an exchange of a regular stone brick) and it was only a decorative stone brick, not an intentionally rare item that affects a core component of the game.

If you wish to discuss this further feel free to PM me. You sent me a second PM recently but it seemed to be the exact same message as the first, so I thought it was an accident and ignored it.

Perhaps give him one more shot since it is a test server, so won't matter too much in the long run? Then maybe amend it into the rules to be clearer. That is if he properly apologised.

I'm only saying this because he's probably taking four with him again which can only annoy him a fair bit I imagine. Two people for something sort of trivial compared to most bans have seemed to be for.

Edit: confiscate and destroy the items of course. Perhaps a fine to drive the message home.

Wait the silverwood was dupplicated. Huh. Well means i should destroy the silverwoods I currently have, Or i could plant them. or destroy them. :/

Didn't really panic, was just more of oh crap, what the hell is going on. So not really panic anywhere. Though I did leave for the north, though now i have no way of getting back to spawn, apart from walking. (okay i did panic, because nothing seemed to work, though it seems like my spot that i picked spawns wisps every freaking minute. Which utterly annoys the crap out of me. Hence why i planted a silverwood tree to clam down the energies, now i have to make crystal clusters to increase the aura.)

Also i do not exactly know what crystal clusters do exactly do they increase the aura or are they just decorative?

I have a few questions on how to use the mysticraft portals so that way i could learn how to teleport back to my house using a linking book.

Can anyone explain to me how to use the linking book so I may gather any remaining supplies I may have at my old base?

So ought we to return the Silverwood stuff we've collected from the trees? I've already made a couple (Flux-less, mind!) Flux Philters with the stuff, though...


Yeah, I have no idea what StormWarriors was on about either. He kept crying "Framerate, Framerate!" but I couldn't see anything odd going on on my end.


All in all, I think this was a great learning experience- both for the Mages, (learn to study and take your time before doing major works- don't 'spam' infusions) and for everyone in general- don't panic. If something bad's happening on the server, log off for a while, go on the forums about it. Ask, discuss, reach a consensus before doing anything that'll affect multiple people.

While I've blamed you in the past, I have not done so recently. The problem is now solved, even though you promised to fix it. And all it cost us was frostoman's ability to access the server. I blame you once again, for a different reason.

Interestingly, in this case, Inaction was part of the proper solution. We halted out thaumic infusions (at least I did) to allow the Flux to naturally discharge. That would actually have worked.

I was also looking in to getting Silverwoods- however, I don't currently have Goggles of Revealing, and so I would be at a disadvantage when attempting to properly fix it.

Regardless--- the problem's fixed now. We must all, in the future, work on keeping Flux levels down (those of us who use Thaumcraft, that is).

Black ops 2-been playing for 5 days, but for crazy reasons it thinks that I had that game because of the free weekend! Steam are refusing to return the game I spent €60 on!

So ought we to return the Silverwood stuff we've collected from the trees? I've already made a couple (Flux-less, mind!) Flux Philters with the stuff, though...


Yeah, I have no idea what StormWarriors was on about either. He kept crying "Framerate, Framerate!" but I couldn't see anything odd going on on my end.


All in all, I think this was a great learning experience- both for the Mages, (learn to study and take your time before doing major works- don't 'spam' infusions) and for everyone in general- don't panic. If something bad's happening on the server, log off for a while, go on the forums about it. Ask, discuss, reach a consensus before doing anything that'll affect multiple people.

I'm stormwarriors btw :/

Ever since I assume the server is in a different country. I'm probably going to have expontential lag. My frame rate went from a solid 50 FPS. to a solid 2 fps. Thats what i was worried about. It was only in the area of the silverwood trees. (when i had my wand out that is.)

Just want to add a few things here:

1) The aura around the place where Anvildude and Pimp/Apostle hang out *was* showing "dangerous" levels of flux. Claiming it wasn't doesn't make it any different. however, the trees have fixed this.

2) The trees don't cause lag. The lag was likely caused by the bluepower engine tower that was flicking off and on causing multiple lighting updates every second. 4oursword has disabled this along with a cobble generator in the basement that was creating unnecessary block updates when an Igneous Extruder would have sufficed. Similarly I'd appreciate it if people try to make their setups be kind to the server, no redpower timers set to 0.2ms, no crazy overcomplicated machines where a single block machine can replace it and please, no infinite chicken generators

3) The server may be in Germany, but it's the exact same server as the one hosting Tekkit, and is in the exact same datacenter as the Vanilla server was until it died.

Finally.
If you do get it working feel free to use the stuff in my tree near spawn. No idea if spawn has a thaumcraft set up yet.

It does. It actually has one of the best ones, minus Tallow golem helpers. And Dark fixed the whole "No Vis" thing, it seems.

Just an FYI to those dabbling in Thaumcraft- if you right click with a wand on a crucible with stuff in it, and it's not a specific recipe, it'll dump the aspects. If you have some Arcane Alembics, you can capture these aspects. Do it in multiples of 8, and you'll be able to grab the Aspects up in Vials/flasks/whateverthey'recalled- these are pure Aspects (in multiples of 8) that are very, very useful for Infusing things, and can be a way of keeping Flux down. Put them in Warded Jars placed about the area, and you can draw directly from the jars in case you're doing non-multiple-of-8 infusing.

Also, as there seems to be some confusion here:

Thaumcraft Crystal Clusters are not related to Xycraft Quartz Crystal

I've seen several people decorating their Thaumcraft areas with Quartz. As far as I'm aware, at present Quartz is just for decoration, but if you're confusing quartz with the crystal clusters, you can check the links above.

I think it does. While I couldn't get a good framerate, I know I saw thaum-tubes.

I'll go talk to the guy who works on my computer this weekend, see what he recommends about what parts I'd need to replace to upgrade this thing.

Im not sure about the portable hole being that useful, It cant make a hole through complicated objects and isnt really that useful to get out of a cave unless you need to go horizontally.

It's really useful for getting around, really useful. Also it can get through most things that thaumcraft is compatible with.

I've also got a decent thaumcraft set up in haremville.

If items are in a non-vanilla Ender Chest, and there are no chests in the world on that frequency but the chest is destroyed, are the items still there? Schrödinger's Chest?

I thought that if the last chest of that frequency was destroyed then it drops the items inside. I've never tried it, though; might be easier to test in creative.

After weeks of labor.... I have finally gotten the items I needed. I have a full set of weapons that all do fire damage and are auto repair. (i've been fighting in the duengons in the twilight forest, fighting minotaurs = alot of exp) So I have full armor set of thaumium which grants me repair and armor protection IV. I am ready to face the boss of the duengon called the Minushroom. He's a pain. Does anyone wish to fight with lord of the flame
There is alot of lot depending on how many people show up. Thaumcraft or scientists are welcomed to join. Be wary I'm quite far away and the twilight forest is quite dangerous.
Or i could get some help to make a minotaur grinder.
