Hi there guys.
Reading through the newest threads in here reminded me my first glimpse in the modpack. The new stuff, new ore, machines, trials and... errors. That's right errors.
Following the >starters guide by Curunir I wanted to alarm some new members and the vanilla minecraft players about all those dangers and tekkit specific things that can drive us nuts in our worlds.
When on a server or singleplayer post danger, death threatening things, big errors and small mistakes with bad outcome that can happen and provoke a punch at the keyboard from time to time and all those 'Oh my God....' and other ('The F%&$ is this') words.
Post your mistakes and the outcome. I would like that you keep it simple, one situation per post, a dangerous block, fluid or anything that can get you killed or furiously mad in all game levels.
Didn't find any topic like that in discussion so here's one.
I would like to start right from the beginning so here it goes:
Don't swim in any strange coloured lake you find, you can poison yourself or die. Be careful when jetpacking over them or drying out a quarry hole.
These are Minefactory reloaded worldgen lakes and they are dangerous. You can turn on Waila liquids (NUMPAD2) to help identify them.
I've tested them in very early survival and they were not healthy at all, killed me in seconds when my controls (for swim/jump) weren't set right.
Even a Power Suit is not enough for their toxicity.
Hope you guys enjoy the thread.
