  1. I don't see how the cutscene would add anything to the game, and it'd piss people off if it wasn't skippable. Plus, it'd be hard, if not impossible, to implement in minecraft. I don't know why you'd say no to new mods just because what we have in the pack is good. Mo' Creatures is easy to configure so that it's less invasive (can do it from inside minecraft even), and ars magica can mostly be ignored (except in pvp, but there are certainly ways to beat a wizard without magic). It won't make the pack any worse, and it contributes to the Hexxit feel. Besides, you can remove it or play on an olde
  2. Might be a slight one week necro, but I don't get on all that often so I missed this. Don't get me wrong on this, I love Divine RPG, but some of the mobs, especially the nether ones, can be a pain. I don't mind a feeling of danger, but I don't want to spend five minuets spamming left click to take something down, and Divine RPG is particularly bad about this (one of the end game bosses has 5000 health, and your average nether mob has 100-120). There's not really that much strategy to the fights either, they just hit like a truck if you don't keep knocking them back into a corner, and the +80 d
  3. I like Mo' Creatures overall, but some features of it can be quite annoying, such as how common the new mobs are. I had to nerf the spawn levels of pretty much everything it added into oblivion just to see some vanilla mobs. With the spawn levels for absolutely everything set to the same level as endermen, I still could get the resources I needed from vanilla mobs, and see the Mo' Creatures mobs as well, without them becoming annoying (let's face it, werewolves should not have the same spawn rate as creepers, skeletons, and spiders, to the point where that and blue slimes is all I'm getting).
  4. Ars Magica is very much in keeping with the spirit of Hexxit, encouraging exploration to find spells, and even has a unique tower guarded by tough bosses that is necessary to unlock the highest tier of casting. Mystcraft is an ok fit, but it really would serve no useful purpose in an adventure mudpack, aside from creating linking books to places. Thaumcraft would, surprisingly, be a terrible fit for Hexxit (in my opinion, feel free to have your own), because it encourages settling down to research all those technologies, go mining to get more stuff to throw into your research table, and offers
  5. When I try adding the universal electricity mods, it just gray screens. It hasn't created config files so I can't change the block id's on the mods. Any idea how to get past this? Edit: It displays the mojang screen then gray screens.
  6. Not a black market, micro center. I don't remember what the model or serial numbers are, I'll look at it later, but it works fine.
  7. I think that tekkit pvp battles are pointless, because they take so long. The thing that you need to do to lure them into a trap, there are some electrocution traps that kill quantum instantly. Tekkit is about cunning and planning in advance, not spam clicking like vannilla battles.
  8. I found it hard to believe too, but, it works very well, and I've had no problems with it so far. You don't have to believe it, because it works for me and I like it.
  9. And why not? Why is everyone so anal about necroes? How does it hurt anyone? There was also a thread about pies that got locked for what appears to me to be no reason, what's that about?
  10. Sorry, haven't been on in a while, so I didn't see this. I forgot what make it is, but it runs direct x 11 (my old one only did 10), and my graphics have jumped from very low to high, so it's much better.
  11. That was indeed a very nice necro, but I've got you beat. I necroed two different threads that had been dead for a year.
  12. I got a $20 graphics card for christmas. But it has 1G of ram, and a very good speed, not to mention sound processing on a graphics card. Yes, $20, that's not a typo.
  13. Ummm, so, I necroed a thread, you can join in. Why does it matter?
  14. Sorry for the two month necro, but I think that just putting it a few thousand blocks away from spawn would do it. You could also build a fortress in the end, no nether to teleport in. Teraform it to look like the overworld, and put a force field around what you want.
  15. I know it's a temporary fix. 1. Assuming the blocks spread themselves in some way, as the wiki page would seem to indicate, for blocks to spread indepemndantly of the aura, they need to be next to an adjacent block. 2. If they are not next to a non corrupted corruptable block, then the infection will only spread after the aura takes the time to drain into the surrounding chunks. 3. Totems of dawn raise the vis aura. 4. One of the requirements for becoming a tainted chunk is to have a low vis concentration. Therefore: Nuking will have the same effect as a cobblestone wall, buying you time
  16. Thank you, that's exactly what I've been trying to say the whole time! But, the question remains, will the nukes be as effective a temporary fix as the wall of cobblestone? I assumed it would work for a time, like the wall, because it cuts off the blocks from the outside world, but am I wrong, and the nukes do less than the wall?
  17. Quoted from the Thaumcraft 2 Wiki "Once the Taint has a hold in an area, it slowly spreads like a surface infection. A Taint infection can be considered severe once you have a local infection that encompasses at least three or four chunks, each of which has a Taint level above a rating of 7000 or more (you can see the exact amount of Vis and Taint in the atmosphere with the Goggles of Revealing. A local infection will not penetrate the ground and only infects the blocks on the surface. Note that while the Taint does not infect water it can, and will, spread along the bottom of lakes and r
  18. Okay, thanks for clearing that up. I was under the impression that the blocks could infect adjacent, non-player-made blocks, hence cobblestone walls being used for containment of the physical spread, as recomended by the technic wiki, but if the blocks don't spread independantly of the atmospheric taint, then nuking wouldn't help at all, and neither wpuld the cobblestone walls. I thought that the atmospheric taint corrupted a few blocks, those blocks infected others, and so on in a chain reaction, and unless the taint itself was removed, it would keep manifesting itself through corrupting bloc
  19. It's been my experience that the atmospheric taint spreads more slowly than the blocks, which transmit themselves to chunks that otherwise don't have the conditions to become tainted. If I prevent the blocks from spreading, then I can protect against the atmospheric taint with just totems of dawn, which are within my capabilities at the moment. The nuke just prevents the faster spreading blocks from uglifying my world despite the normal aura levels in the surounding chunks. The taint levels also went down slightly due to all the smashed taint crystals. There's no need for hostility, I read you
  20. I had the same problem myself shortly after using a lever to power a rotary macerator. I removed the mod, and the server worked. After a little testing, I found out that any advanced machine (except the induction furnace, that's from "vanilla" IC2) will cause this bug. I'm afraid you'll have to remove the mod and use overclockers for the time being. Shame, as I really like those machines. Good news is, the solar arrays work just fine. Hope this helped! EDIT: It seems that transport pipes put blaze rods into the output slot of macerators now, so that screws over my blazerator. I think it is
  21. I'm well aware of that. However, the taint blocks are unable to spread when they're isolated by a frikkin massive crater. I haven't done this long term, but it seemed to at least reduce the urgency of the situation.
  22. No, I don't want a laptop, I was just wondering what went into making one. Until today, I didn't even know they sold laptop parts for DIY computers.
  23. I've only built a tower computer myself, is it any harder to build a laptop, or just putting the parts in the casing?

    If you chop down the cherry tree with your diamond axe you got for your birthday, then you'd better tell the truth when asked about it.
