Mystcraft basics. Link Books. Basic teleporter.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

Finally have some time for a short tutorial for the newbies.

 

Have you wanted to travel really quick to your oil field desert?

Maybe you've been in a sticky situation underground and needed a quick getaway?

You are sick of the pigment coming out of your portal?

 

Never fear, Mystcraft Link Books are here.

You can get away fast to your base, return from the Nether or setup a teleporting outpost somewhere in the quarry site and the other in your home.

 

Here's a quick tutorial for the Link Books with Mystcraft.

I will not discuss the basics of NEI here. You will need to find some recipes yourself.

 

---------------------------

 

Chapter One: Standard Link Book (teleport from other dimensions).

 

1. You will need an ink mixer, oh here's one (the wood planks colour is not important):

2. We need to place it somewhere...

3. How about right clicking it...

Yes, you will need an ink vial and some paper, go get it, kill some squids and grow some sugar cane / put some wood in the pulverizer, craft some ink vials.

 

 

4. Put the ink vial and paper in the left slots or shift click to auto fit them.

(Oh, it turned black and you've got an empty vial and something in the right side.)

 

5. In the bottom right slot is the linking panel. Get it from there.

(What do you do with it?)

 

 

6. You can craft a Link Book. You need some leather and a crafting table.

(A grey book... Pffff...)

 

7. It is unlinked. You need to link it first do a destination (to a spot). Grab it and put it in your hand.

8.  Right click with it in the air (use it). You will see:

 

SwfkPuy.jpg

 

(What the hell is this...?)

 

 

This is the the target for this book. Overworld (the target dimension) because you've linked it here to this very spot where are you standing now (target coordinates).

 

9. Press E or Esc to exit...

 

adPBFlf.jpg

 

Yeah. It's green now (it is linked).

 

Can you test it? No.

 

This is a standard Link Book with teleporting capabilities to a different dimension.

 

This won't teleport you from overworld to overworld. Only from other dimensions to get back.

 

Yes, you can test it in the Nether.

 

 

10. Go to a different dimension.

 

wXTrdYq.jpg

 

11. Right click with it in your hand.

 

Z0guY89.jpg
 

12. Click the blue-ish area on the right side. Yes, it looks better now. In the overworld it was greyed out or something.

 

DY7EYEt.jpg

 

 

(What in heavens is this...? What's that sound...?)

 

RqgGjOV.jpg

And you are in the spot again. Just fine and everything. But wait....

 

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

 

(Where's the book?!? It's gone. Where is it?)

 

Right where you left it.

 

Mystcraft teleports you, not the book.

 

You've got teleported. The book didn't. It never does. It's there where you left it.

 

BhcHZ0r.jpg

 

(Wait a minute... It has health - hearts?)

 

Mystcraft book when left on the ground (it's an entity) has its health and can be 'killed'.

 

Beware when leaving a book down it can get damaged and go.. puff.

 

To pick it up right click on it on the ground (don't kick it to the lava) and drag it from the left side of the book GUI to your inventory (when grabbed the books GUI will close and show inventory).

If you want to avoid the book dropping craft a Bookstand....

 

L152rNG.jpg

 

....and put it down in the source location...

 

Nrdjn7i.jpg

 

...then put the book on it (right click)

 

WHzeLND.jpg

 

 

And there you go. You made it to the end of chapter one.

 

Now you have a working one way teleporter from other dimensions. You can setup a reverse path to it. Link the book in the Nether and carry it home and place on a Bookstand (no more pigmen).

 

This one can be stationary (Bookstand) or portable when in other dimensions (carry the book by your side) but it will be dropped when you use it without a Bookstand.

 

Warning: Linking books are very fragile, even on a Bookstand. One direct hit of a Ghast fireball and you can be stranded here for ever.

 

 

TL;DR

 

1. Craft ink mixer

2. Fill with ink and paper

3. Craft Link Panel

4. Craft Link Book with leather

5. Link it (right click), goes green

6. Go to other dimension

7. Use book

8. Magic. Teleported me home.

9. Where's the book?

10. I'll put it on a Bookstand next time.
 

---------------------------

Chapter Two: Link Book with intra-linking (teleport from anywhere).

 

This one tells you how to get an Intra linking effect on the book.

 

 

1. Do everything from chapter one from points 1 to 4. Get some pulverized gold (or some ender pearls). One stack should be enough if you're lucky (gold - 64, pearls - 16). I used gold.

This will bring you to

6Lb3LDF.jpg

 

2. Throw some pulverized gold to the dark circle (to the ink)

 

1IXOBJ8.jpg

 

Now the circle starts to change colours.

Seen green. This is an additional positive effect on the produced linking panel.

 

j1oztrI.jpg

 

Seen red. This is an negative effect.

HQgR4Vb.jpg

 

The duration of the colours is the chance you will get an effect. It all is about chances.

I've been lucky today. I've got my resulting panel the second time (with the effect I wanted).

 

3. Pull it out of the right bottom slot and hover over it.

 

cWs60e3.jpg

 

You want Intra Linking. Trust me. Don't wish anything more.

 

If you stumble upon the Disarm effect be very careful as it will strip you from your inventory when teleporting with a book made of that panel.

I'm not responsible for playing with the negative effects in books. I, personally, had my Disarm panel thrown in the trash.

 

The complete list with the effects for the curious is here.

 

4. Go and do everything from points 6 to 9 from chapter one.

Now you have a linked book with Intra Linking effect that can teleport you from anywhere (any dimension) to anywhere (any dimension) and you can teleport inside one dimension from one spot to another (and back with a second Intra Linking Link Book).

 

5. Go do something with this new knowledge.

 

Warning: Linking books are very fragile, even on a Bookstand. One direct hit of a Ghast fireball and you can be stranded here for ever.

 

If you link a book to a spot and then build a mountain in this area.... I don't know what will happen. Test it yourself...in creative obviously.

 

You're at the end of chapter two. You've made it.

 

 

TL;DR

 

1. Craft ink mixer

2. Fill with ink and paper

3. Add some gold

4. Craft Link Panel with Intra Linking

5. Craft Link Book with leather

6. Link it (right click), goes green

7. Go to wherever you go

8. Use book

9. Magic. Teleported me home.

10. Where's the book?

11. I left it on a book stand this time.

 

 

 

--------------------------------------

 

Have fun. Don't kill yourself :)

 

If you see anything wrong in my starters guide or have some additional info leave me a PM or post it here.

It's such a shame that the 'follow' ability was removed (well except by command). I suppose it was rather OP but that could have been fixed by using expensive materials for the ink.

 

Will you be doing a chapter for portals as well later on? You can do some amazing stuff with those things :P

I've barely touched Mystcraft. Done some magic gold ore ages and poured a sea of quarries over it and that's it. I engage you to do a tutorial (or two). That one was painful, the clicking over the imgur and the text editor, browsers tabs, graphic editor was vary exhausting (I'm a father of a 4 year old energy volcano travelling at transwarp speed over my house - I need sleep). I'm going to do some tutorial but surely not this week.

I find dimensional doors to be much more practical as a from of teleportation tbh, as they can be used with a pressure plate to avoid all the annoying clicking around link books cause, or to create the illusion of a house which is bigger inside than outside. :)

 

Although I have to agree that mystcraft is a lot cheaper, as world thread can be hard to get.

Dimensional Doors is also notorius as the number one cause for corrupted worlds and game crashes, while I cannot even remember the last ticket about Mystcraft. DDoors may have some appeal, but it very urgently needs to become more stable and safe.

 

Thanks for the effort, bochen. But do tend to that little volcano of yours (you sure it's not secretly an Enderman, teleporting around?), and make sure it doesn't unlink stuff in real life that you'll miss.  ;-)

Actually you can craft portal frames with Mystcraft that you can place a book into and use. You can make them virtually any size too and their forum has some amazing pics if you care to look them up.

 

I'm with Curunir on this one as I lost an entire quarry world to DDoors a while back as I thought I would be clever and use them to move between floors in a quarry base I was making. It totally ruined the dimension (super intense frame lag) and I had to scrap it. Mystcraft is a superior way to teleport around, no question.

 

DDoors is good for two things in my opinion however. If you want a smallish space to build something in the pocket dimensions are pretty nice. If you're willing to brave the traps and Limbo exploring the dimensional dungeons can be fun too as the creator did some amazing stuff with some of those.

Yeah. DDoors is in chaos right now. Got some world thread and crafted a rift remover to get it out of my sight.

That volcano surely behaves like an Enderman teleporting. And the stolen goods.. It all fits now. You're a genius.

      I am using the portable version of the technic launcher on mac (on an sd card) and this morning I was playing lapito's galacticraft, closed it, then I reopened the technic launcher a few hours later, and it only showed the official technic modpacks, but even they weren't downloaded, I check the technique folder, all the modpacks are still there, and the saves too. I don't know what to do.

      Steps to remedy white screen after press play issue for build 4.493 OR Modpack fails to launch (applicable to any modpack) reopening launcher instead
      This topic is constantly being updated so feel free to check back on it.
      1. Sometimes logging off and logging back in solves a lot of program related issues.
         If logging off didn't work then it is a different software / config issue.
      2. Ensure you have the latest version of java. A lot of people may suggest to use java 7.
         However I would not recommend this. Reasons being:
         a. Java 8 contains the framework for java 7. each version is usually an improvement or addition.
         b. For me java 7 simply crashes my modpacks. Either it makes them unlaunchable or they crash too randomly.
      3. Some people recently have reported that downgrading java has fixed their problem. In which case uninstall and install java a version down at a time until you find what fixes it for you.
      4. Ensure you have the latest graphics driver.
         I have noticed that this problem tends to pop its head up the moment that a new graphics driver version is available but I haven't installed it yet.
         From a programmers perspective. And I have reason to believe that it has been like this for decades now (ever since ver.1 possibly)... 
         They most likely have a piece of code in the driver that literally reads as:
         
      if @DriverVer not @LatestVer then $error
         To throw a logged error without a message would be a much more subtle approach than just throwing an error with message.
         This would overload the CPU/GPU silently if it is repeated and also has the potential to slow down our HDDs from excessive read/write.
         I have reason to believe that this is done to (gently) force us to keep our drivers updated.
         I mean after all... outdated drivers never crash computers... they just simply make it run sslllooowwwww.
         So if you happen to notice similar behavior as soon as there is a driver update available (for any device), you will know why.
         Nothing that any of us can do really except to just keep our drivers up to date.
      This is from the knowledge an ex I.T. Technician Assistant
      5. Ensure you have allocated enough RAM in Launcher options under java settings. I would recommend at least half of your available RAM to leave enough for system operations.
      6. If you have a 64 bit system. use x64 java not x82. Using mismatched java can cause all sorts of problems. Why? Because your CPU / GPU needs to work in ways its not supposed to So in a way this can also cause blue screens!
      7. Sometimes just closing the launcher, making sure that all instances of javaw.exe are closed in task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del). and then reopening can solved white screen.
      8. Some times the white screen just needs a little patience. no longer than 10 minutes ideally however.
      9.
       

      Hope this tutorial helps, and if you guys find any other remedies for this most recent build feel free to post them below. I may or may not edit this post to include them. See if i have time but no promises ;). Will add any other fixes I find that are also common answers. If you feel any of them should be credited to anyone in particular do tell me ;). But in the interest of preventing Accidental Topic Spamming please PM me this info and I will do my best to update it ASAP.
       
      Edit: I think this should get pinned :).

      /rankup
      admin shop
      our custom /crownjewel which you can buy certain perks with
      and more we are still in early development so any help tips or suggestions are much appreicated.
