I was looking for a way to make the game a little more challenging without making it deadly.
I have worked hard to manually edit a bunch of the java and config files for the mods.
Here are some of the additions:
All mobs health have been increased by a good amount, requiring more than one hit explode enemy mobs!
Zombies speed has been increased slightly.
Zombies have a chance to call on/spawn for help from another zombie
Zombies will do more damage now.
Rare mobs that have buffs will now have much more health and will have a chance to do much more damage!
Ultra rare mob bosses are dangerous as usual but have more health.
No MORE sticky mobs that disarm you! Yes the disarm mechanic has been disabled! (Your welcome Ashuri)
ALL boss mobs (The Wither, all chocolate quest bosses, All thaumcraft Bosses, All Twilight bosses) have had their health DRAMATICALLY increased. (So you might need help from a friend to defeat them)
New Faster detailed Loading screen:
A new loading screen will display when you start minecraft now. No more trying to guess if minecraft is loading or frozen on startup.
Some may notice a speed up on loading.
Fixed a minor bug causing lag when a shade spawns
Advanced enchanting table not loading the GUI.
Damage indicators: Since mobs have more health I thought it would be helpful to bring back the damage indicator mod.
Many MANY configuration changes. Too many to list!
PLEASE make sure you delete your config folder and mods folder with this update! (IMPORTANT) You will not lose your keybindings.
A HUGE stability update! Many changes have been made to the config files to make the game as stable as possible.
With any luck we can leave the modpack at this version for a while as long as we don’t bump into any crashes. The server has been more stable and the updates are to clean up some mod compatibility etc.
One of the config changes I did I fixed the Advanced Enchanting Table
Gany's Surface Mod fix (for those interested):
Found the issue and fixed it, it has to do with Gany’s Surface mod! There is an option to use a different enchanting table at the top of the Gany’s Surface config file. Open the Gany’s Surface config file in: C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\config\GanysMods and change the following from true to false:
B:”Enable 1.8 Enchanting Table”=false
Many mods have been updated and I have updated their respective config files for our server:
I am aiming for stability in any modpack updates and configuration changes right now.
Mystcraft: Create portals to new worlds through books. Also return to the overworld from any dimension, even space -You are welcome Ashuri!
ExtrabiomesXL: Changed the config so that villages only load in Vanilla biomes to prevent a crash
Twilight forest: Changed conflicting Biome ID’s (this time i got it for sure! … I think)
AncientWarfare: Turned off structure generation for this to prevent it from creating enemy and allied Towns. I regret having to do this but I think that some of the structures generated were causing a crash.
Tinkerers Construct: Fixed a few configs to make sure that vanilla tools were working properly
Seems that Daroshi helped me nail down a crash that was happening on the server.
There is a crash that happens on structure generation due to Fastcraft. There is a new version which should fix this issue. If it DOESNT fix the issue I will remove Fastcraft from the Server side.
Download the New Version of fastcraft 1.20 from the download menu and put it in your mods folder.
MAKE sure you delete Fastcraft 1.19 after you do that.
I disabled the meteors mod and re-enabled the Poisonous Dragonflies.
It seems that the game didnt like me turning meteors off so I just disabled the whole thing. Also was acting up disabling the Dragonflies so I reluctantly re-enabled them. I will look for the fix for dragonflies another time and let you know!
