Suggestions for Next update

Recommended Posts

Can the next update of Big Dig pretty please include Optifine? I love using my HD textures, and having to install Optifine manually after updates is a wee bit of a pain.

Also - some kind of pocket crafting table would be lovely. I tried adding one myself, but adding Factorization gave me ID conflicts, and the two standalone options I tried just crashed it (although knowing how mod-savvy I'm NOT, that might have been me screwing up).

The author of Optifine has dissalowed modpacks to include it.

ID conflicts are very easy to solve, just edit the mod config.

I think that we need two sticky threads:

  • "Do you want OptiFine? Read this!"
  • "Do you want Thaumcraft? Read this!"

Yes, we all want them. But unfortunately the authors haven't given the permission to use those.

Um, how? I have NO idea how to do that (total mod newbie, even installing Optifine was hard for me). Is there a mini-tutorial or something somewhere I can reference?

Most mods generate a special configuration file (.cfg) in the /config folder. Open those with your favorite text editor (I recommend Notepad++) and edit the block/item IDs

There is already a portable crafting option built in. Make a minium stone from EE3 and put it on your hotbar, select it, and press the C button....there you go...craft away. Each crafting action takes a small bit of the stone's durability but not much and you can make more of them with ease.

That's useful for some stuff, but does it let you craft things like pickaxes and torches?

It basically opens a crafting table. It's not transmuting anything, it just crafts.

The old philosopher's stone actually had the same functionality. You just need to press C, and you have an instant portable crafting table ;)

Optifine is really easy to add... you just open up the modpack.jar in the bin folder and put the contents of the optifine stuff you downloaded then close up the jar again then run.

Here's sample of my script which "patches" vanilla with ModLoader, LiteLoader and OptiFine (actually it builds zipped modpack for Platform).

it would be nice if thaumcraft(+thaumic bees) and optifine were allowed now that its an official pack, also the rest of the metallurgy would be nice (fantasy metals etc

Two thirds of that are currently impossible, at least if Big Dig is to keep its 100% permissions. The maker of Thaumcraft 3 has decided (for the time being, at least - may change in future) that the only packs with permission are FTB packs. Optifine is blanket disallowed for any packs, and unlikely to change. The Metallurgy might be possible though - I'm fairly sure it works with the pack.

Public Mod Packs:

- Feed the Beast

- AMCO

- SolitaryCraft

You sure about that?

Store that cobble in a deep storage unit, or use AE to store it.

Well, I was... :P

Probably getting mixed up with other mods or something. Either that, or I haven't looked at that list in a longggggg time.
