Colonial Expansion 1.12.2-7.1.0.51

What’s happening!

Quick build of the pack to resolve issues with Simple Storage Network crafting.

Forge updated to build 1.12.2-14.23.1.2607

Minor mod updates.

Added TerraCart Reloaded by me into the pack, originally it was TerraCart by Lime, but he never upgraded from 1.11.2. I’ve contact him about it and he has ignored my requests. The mod was WTFPL licensed and the source was available so I ran with it. Now we can enjoy this feature once again, which is to right click an empty track to be magically placed into a minecraft with no friction and zip zap zoom away. Dismount and the minecraft vanishes! Great for not burning your waypoints.

Rolled minecolonies back to build 1.12.2-0.8.6934 to solve issues that were being introduced by the alpha.

The pack has been switched to beta and release mode, hopefully no more alphas will fall into it.

Rolled Journeymap down to the last stable version.

Sky Colony 1.12.2-2.6.0.18

What it be

Forge is now on build 1.12.2-14.23.1.2607

Due to a bad crash scenario, Stellar Sky has been removed and will be added back once a proper fix has been issued. See https://github.com/Abastro/StellarSky/issues/94 for more details.

I changed the pack policy to only include Betas which should provide for more stability going forward.

Apparently Techbrew realized he was pushing some bad code or rather code that Forge didn’t like. He has removed his mod version that are newer than November and I think that’s a good thing.

Added a way to get to the end. It’s a device you have to craft and then power up.

Beautified the Client interface.

Turned on more features in ProjectE in hopes that it solves the EMC issues.

  • enderstorage and the Thermal mods as they are to tech/futuristic for the pack theme
  • color utility as it was another one of those not used
  • compatlayer because not mod was depending on it
  • computality as it is too futuristic
  • dynamic lights as it wasn’t updated
  • easy breeding as not updated
  • ffs as it is also to out of place for theme
  • foamflower as it no other mod was using it
  • forestry because of the tech theme anti-requirement

  • openblocks elevator mod because it, well, you can use ladders and stairs can’t you?
  • plants because we don’t need that many friggin plants
  • platforms and shetiphian core because 2 reasons: 1) platforms are too difficult to make and 2) no body ever says “oooo!!!! eeeeeeeeekkkkkk!!!! Aaaaaah, yes, boyo! You have platforms!!!” also there is no other level of excitement associated with them, they are just flat ignored
  • quantumstorage as it is too tech, it is outside the theme parameters. You can use a a colossal chest or a series of iron chests using a simple network
  • ranged pumps: see theme paremeters
  • Tech reborn, reborn storage, steve’s carts reborn: see theme requirement

Theme Parameters

The theme is colonial, about 1 to 200 years after the medieval period. Heavy industry, rampant chemistry, let alone computerized science were not even remotely popular yet. They were obscure fancies relegated to the enormously rich as mental diversions and forms of entertainment. So most of the mods lose against this standard. Which is good because this pack needed to go on a diet badly!

Social Media can Pay you too!

In the last 3 days since I made the move to Steemit.com and also away from  Youtube to D.Tube which is built upon Steemit I have earned 0.001 STEEM which converts to 0.00002141 BTC. If you consider that I didn’t spend money on BitCoin mining hardware or software and all that I did was blog and make videos, then this is the way to go.

If what you do in your daily life is share things with friends, family, and strangers on your various social media apps and devices then you are quite literally wasting your own possibly income potential. You are paying someone else, who is also not currently happy with how you pay them, so they pummel you with ads in hopes that you either click a link or physically shop at one of the ad venues.

Cut these middle men out and help make the internet and the world of transactions secure by doing what you do best! Blathering*!!!

However, you’ll be blathering to get paid vs blathering for free.

I can tell you that professional and poignant blathering gets the best results, however, normal blathering works just fine too. I do that latter.

What are you waiting for signup at https://busy.org/i/@kreezxil and begin blathering today!

*What is blathering?

This means to talk without purpose. To chatter. Yak. Gab and what not.

Help Me Get Support on CurseForge for DTube

When I announced on January 17, 2018 that I had abandoned YouTube in favor of DTube I discovered that on CurseForge they would remove the embed for DTube and any other platform that does not come from YouTube. I noticed that while in the editor the embed for DTube and I remember that in the past any embed from any other site will show the video just fine. But when you hit “Submit” the CurseForge bot would remove the embed.

Below is my letter chain asking for DTube support and their response. What I need is for all reading this including the Steem community to create CurseForge accounts and then petition them for DTube support.

My initial request

kreezxil

Jan 17, 7:36 PM PST

Can you guys add support for embedding videos from other video sources such as the site https://d.tube/?

I’ve begun switching my videos on Youtube to this other platform where I can still get monetization support. As you might be aware on January 17, 2018 Youtube implemented a policy change that cause Youtube Channels with less than 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of net watch time in a year to be completely demonetized. I was counting on them for a paltry $100/year, that is no longer the case. So I’m moving my video location.

I noticed that when I’m editing my modpack and mod pages that in the source editor I can include a full embed code from D.Tube and the player will appear in the editor and play the video. But when I save it, your bot removes the embed. That tells me your platform can easily play the video.

Considering that more and more of us will be fleeing the Youtube flotilla, it might be a good idea to allow playing videos from other platforms.

Thanks for your time and consideration in this matter,

Kreezxil

CurseForge’s Response

Hey there!

Unfortunately, this is pretty low on our priority list. We feel for Youtuber’s and the changes being made, but Youtube is still the best and easiest video provider for us to support.

We will keep an eye on this, and if its something we get more requests about, we will re-evaluate.

Sorry!

Thanks,
MrFlamegoat

I’m DONE with YouTube!!!

And I sincerely hope everyone else follows suit!

This morning I woke up to a letter in my email from Youtube saying that they are demonetizing channels that have less than 1000 subscribers despite those channels actually earning money.

When you look at their “learn more” section there is some smoke and mirrors about protecting the revenue streams of the 6 figure income creators. I don’t get it, they can’t spare change for the small guys?

On top of that they use the words “bad actor” frequently in the explanation making me feel like they are calling me a “bad actor”! My channel has been about gaming, Minecraft in particular and has never been about religion, politics, or anything else controversial or illegal.

I personally think it is a left-wing liberal attempt and making the small among us to have more hardship than we already have to force us to ask big daddy government for help.

HOWEVER THERE IS A CHOICE!

You can switch to D.tube which I have been doing all day today and will likely take the rest of the week because the video downloading and uploading is so slow! I’m not gonna repost all of my videos as some of them were junk by my standards but there is a huge bulk of them bordering on 200 that I safeguarding.

For more details on how I am doing this and read my post on Steemit.com at https://steemit.com/@kreezxil and don’t forget to follow me there and upvote anything of mine you like. Then  head on over to my https://d.tube/#!/c/kreezxil channel and do the same thing there.

World of Dragons – Medieval Edition 4.0.0

Seriously

If the last 6 (six) months have taught me anything, is that when you make a themed packed centered around a small group of mods and also try to adhere to a strict 3.5GB memory footprint policy, that no matter who logs on to your Discord and asks for things to be added you should ignore them. You also should not abandon your principles. That your initial thoughts are correct.

More succinctly your initial concept of what makes a pack popular is what matters to the vast majority of players and server admin.

Case in point, I had something going with Skyblock: Godless then ruined it by adding too much especially the new Ex Nihilo stuff that showed up. I also had something going with World of Dragons, but then began adding tech to it and other goofy stuff like ProjectE.

Ultimately, players want a challenge, they don’t want to see the same stuff you find in the uber popular FTB packs. They know that if they want that stuff they can get an FTB pack. They are looking at your unique pack because it is unique and made up of new or less used mods.

And yes, this build will WRECK your world, please start fresh, you have been warned!

And for SINGLE PLAYER please choose “OTG” for the world type.

Noteable Change:

We are using OTG for the terrain generation and specifically their Biomes Bundle. The bundle provides a much better terrain generator, new structures including hobbit homes, dungeons, and other stuff you’ll find fit great with a Dragon pack.

Forge now on build 1.12.2 build 2589.

  • Alternate Terrain Generation because it never updated to 1.12.2
  • faster vanilla furnaces because it is now handled by cplpibald’s tweaks which does that plus more!
  • Applied Llamagistics for being too tech
  • Base Metals, MMD OreSpawn, NetherMetals: we’re going to let mods add their own metals w/e they choose this time around.
  • Removed all of the Tinker’s mods, as Embers which is more fitting mod for this pack will be used
  • Inductive Logistics and support library
  • chest transporter as we’ll be using carryon instead which doesn’t require crafting a tool.
  • Chisel for being a fat pig
  • Chisels & Bits and the library mcmultipart
  • thermal expansion and support libraries
  • ender storage and support libraries
  • computality because this pack isn’t about computers and robots
  • forestry for being too tech for a medieval themed pack
  • corail-pillar-extension-foresty/chisel because no forestry/chisel
  • corail scanner as it is too techified for the pack
  • craftable nether star because mod not updated and well, why don’t you fight the wither using a pet dragon instead?
  • crossroads as it doesn’t entirely fit the theme, there are elements of it that when used will make the pack appear more tech-ish
  • default options as it is now no longer need now that curse allows you to include the servers.dat and options.txt in your packs.
  • durability show as it is not in the 1.12.2 branch\
  • ezstorage 2 because it is not yet current
  • flesh2lether as it is not yet updated to the latest forge.
  • all refined storage for being too modern looking, we’re gonna have to get creative with the mods in the pack for a mass storage system.
  • Quantum Storage and its library
  • Growable storage cells because no refined storage/ae2
  • openblocks elevator because there’s got to be another way to do it that fits the theme
  • projectE as it is technically better than any storage system ever with mass crafting! So it doesn’t fit the theme.
  • ranged pumps as there is now tech that would be using it
  • ruins because not 1.12.2
  • I don’t understand why most of these mods aren’t updated to 1.12.2 as they are simple mods and it would be relatively easy to port them up as there would only be a few small changes!!!
  • terracart – gonna miss this one because you could lay the wooden rails from extra rails and then right click them with an empty hand a terraria cart will appear with you in it and away you go in any direction of the track with no resistance!
