QuantumXrime Mk I v 1.3.4

Dupe bugs?

They’re like cockroaches, but you like them. But apparently not enough to tell me which mod is doing it.

Changed Diamond and Emerald ore to be as rare as Lapis Lazuli. Currently it was 3 times less rare, or in other words, way too common!

Added up-sizer which increase the size of smaller stacked and unstackable items to a higher stackable value. I decided to up everything in the default config to 64 items per stack no matter what. For example we can now have 64 lava buckets in one slot!

The config allows us to add items from other mods that we feel should also be up-sized. Feel free to tell me what those are and I’ll add them. I really don’t want to add 1000’s of them, so let’s try to keep it sane and only do the ones that are common and irritating on the smaller stack sizes.

Added Preston which allows insane compression for all full cuboid blocks thru the use of a compression machine which scales in power requirements according to the level of compression being achieved.

Configured meta-morph to lose morphs on death.

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.

  • 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

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

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.
