For those of you asking about the switching game modes get NBTedit.exe and open up the dat files for your players on your server "playerGameType: 0" change that to 1 ... worked for me on my old map :smile.gif:
Edit: Works in single player too just adjust the level.dat and the gamemode for the server
Minecraft 1.8 is not going to be split in half. As notch has stated for the past 3 weeks, he is going to release 1.8 with a few features that are going to be further improved on in 1.9 patch (such as the npc villages for example). This current patch is just like the others so we will have it for a little while.
If you have the time please update it so we may enjoy this wonderful mod :biggrin.gif:
It could be better if:
-When you put an object on another in the shortcut bar, which was before disappears.
-The dropped items does'nt exists.
-There are 2 inventory sections, blocks and items.
-The flying mode is like in SPC, you press a button and u start flying, you press it again and stop, and more specific movement, not like if you were walking in ice...
Geez people, he's already stated he's going to update it, but he needs to wait until he has the free time. He's got a job to hold down for crying out loud. Just wait patiently, it won't be long, but asking every single hour isn't going to make it come any quicker.
SPC is a very complex mod, it hooks into a lot of different code, so it takes a long time to update, so he's waiting until he has the hours free to get it done, I think I heard something about this weekend, but I'm not sure. You really need to learn patience, this is why I don't use very many mods, since I know it takes so long after a new version comes out for the mod makers to come out with new versions, the more complicated the mod, and the more changes the update makes, the longer it takes. This is why I choose not to update until the mods are updated, and if I do update, I make sure to backup the /bin folder so I can restore it after I've tried the new verson. Frankly, I don't think there's really anything you're missing out on not having SPC for like maybe 2-3 more days, I mean there is creative mode, although you won't have worldedit. And if the game is totally unplayable for you without SPC, well I think there's something wrong. Either with you, or with the update.
Frankly, I tried 1.8 out yesterday, and I had a bunch of graphical glitches, specifically the new chests and the old minecarts and such, so I suspect it effects all entities, I didn't see any animals, but I suspect it would effect those too, also my hand in front of me. They all started randomly turning to black spots as I moved. So I restored my copy of 1.7.3 and I'll stick with that until there's some more bug fixes. People have to realize this is a beta version, so with every new update, there's potentially a lot more bugs, which is another reason I wait to update. I don't want a really bad bug ruining my map because I couldn't wait to update. I also noticed it ran slower, but that could also be because I didn't have optifine on the new version, I'm not sure. I've heard other people saying it ran a lot slower too. I suspect this will be fixed soon. Although I do wonder what kinda computers people are running it on to get 150 fps or higher, at one point I was barely getting 10-20 fps with the base game. The thing is, my computer isn't that old, and I think the specs are rather good. I wonder if it's just because I don't have a high-end graphics card. Oh well, it's good enough for my purposes.
I'd rather see a post that says "update mod plz" than a three paragraph massive post about it being a tough thing to do and that you shouldn't disrespect the OP.
I mean, c'mon. You know these posts are gonna keep coming, just shut the hell up and ignore them. If I were OP, I'd be offended that so many people think I'm such a fragile little human being that I need to be defended against every egoistic thankless person. Yes, I would actually be more offended by MindCaged, for example, than by jornedex.
