I just got lost hopelessly. But I found a new cavern. There are rivers flowing through everywhere! There are also too much coal, iron and the occasional redstone and gold and diamonds. I'm starting my farm, and anyone know a good idea not to get lost? Also, any ideas on how to find Dungeons?

Thanks, cheatster! We really do need to get the server up and running though.

I found a texture pack (outdated, though) that fits the Elithian Alliance theme very well (It was made to replicate Mass Effect, which shares the same style as the Elithian Alliance). We could use it to reboot the server.

This is what the pack looks like:

I still remember the good days, shooting the heck out of everything. Smile Good times, good times...

REALLY good texture pack!

Re: Minecraft Tips

Post by Lunark on Thu Apr 19, 2012 1:53 am

I got inspired by a recent project from several popular minecrafters.
Spoiler:
We should make a Hunger Games map! Make our own traps, Treasure, etc. Only downside is that there would only be about 7 players, if it were only the active members. And I'm sure one of us would have to be a sponsor/whatever. Anyways, I think it'll be something we can all have fun with while we're waiting for everything... Like a little minigame or something.

EDIT: We could also just download the map and put it on the server... Then we could start playing immediately and won't have to make it from scratch.

I'm currently updating the texture pack from my last post. I'll upload it when I've finished the most important missing textures.

Where can the map be downloaded?

I've played that map, it's fun once or twice.


How about H/M? It's a mod called Hack Slash Mine and comes on the technic launcher. It turns MC into a Hack and Slash RPG. It's still very wip, but the Developer listens to suggestions. Plus it's just fun. I mean who doesn't like hacking stuff to pieces...








I may or may not be making an adventure map for it as well...

may or may not... May I help if you decide to actually make the map? (knowing you, you probably will make the map Razz)

If the others would like to play the map too, I'll put online the server with this map soon.

H/M seems nice too!


I've been working on updating the texture pack for a bit, and build a few small things to experiment with textures:

A building:

Exterior (unfinished):


Lower floor:


Upper floor:



A spaceship:

Exterior:




Bridge:


Crew's quarters:


Engine room:

Cool, that sounds like a good ideas! The only problem is that I have track meets a lot and get home pretty late.

I guess subtle hinting doesn't work over the internet.


I AM. I AM JUST TRYING TO BE SNEAKY ABOUT SAYING IT.


Also Aeg, those ROCK! I am downloading that texture pack now!

Here's the updated version:
http://www.mediafire.com/?99ya5x9pwkrh539
It's not finished yet and it uses a few textures from other packs that will be replaced later, but it should do for now.


Once the server's up, what should we do first? Play the map Lunark suggested, perhaps H/M, or a build server using this texture pack?

This will sound mad (It's what I'm best at!) But what about h/m with a texture pack? I mean run a build server for a while, but think about it.

One of main flaws with a sci-fi texturepack is the lack of variety in ranged weapons in Minecraft, where this mods loads of wands with different projectiles. A bit of texture work and maybe tweaking the language files, and we have a whole set of lasers, grasers and xasers! Then Bows can be changed to more logical Kinetic Missiles (which with the ranger specials can be electrical, explosive or triple shot.) And those set of being melee can still do so, with more variety to the weaponry.


The only issue I could see is explosive arrows in spawn, but if we're mature (as if Razz) and we don't grief it could work...


Plus, extra blocks = more textures = Better builds.


Also if you can't find a 1.2.3 server to mod to play it MP, I may be able to assist you with acquiring one.

Us ever being mature? Are you mad, bro?
Beat idea ever Thunderpants! If it works we can have bomb-wielding weirdos shooting each other with lava guns. Pretty normal, right.

H/M works on my client, not tested the server yet.

I am now working on the H/M textures. There appears to be only one texture for the actual wand item, should I change it to a handgun?

Maybe something like But colour and less cartoony?

They do get recoloured/tinted with some enchantments.

What should I do with the various armour types available?
So far, I have changed leather to a simple green garb (Aegi-style, of course), and I'm going to change iron to some sort of spacesuit.
