Be prepared for the Recording Mod! First of all, I try to resolve any missunderstandings. This mod is not able to record and save a video of you playing minecraft, for something like this you have to use Fraps or a similar program! But wait, it is a cool feature to play with, trust me.
News 1.4.5 also works 1.4.4 ready
Yeah! 100+ Downloads
I've uploaded a new Version, the way how to see who's recording has changed. See the full change log under the picture!
So what actually does this mod?
This mod offers the oppertunity to tell your friends on a server easily that you are currently recording or streaming, what you do to have no missunderstandings.
Why would you need this?
This mod is a neat utility for lets player or similar, because it adds the posiiblity to tell other players on a server that you are recording or streaming. Often they do not want to tell something that does not belong into the public
If you want to know why I did this, here you go:
My intention was to deliver a mod that was requested on the former Pahicraft, now Forgecraft server. The popular mod lets player direwolf20 is recording, what all the people on that server do and what they speak. But sometimes they didn't know that direwolf20 was recording, so someone(i'm sad to say I forgot whom) had the idea for a red light, that is somewhere on the screen and is showing, that direwolf20 is recording. In other words, this is for you direwolf20 to help your friends on Pahicraft know, what's going on.
(have you read the Attention part? this might not be what you think!)
You need Forge to be installed. Forge from version 6 upwards should work. If not please tell me.
After the download you have to put it in your mods folder. For a forge installation guide please google yourself. Universal (1.4.4/1.4.5) Universal (1.4.2)
So this is, how it looks like
This is the popup on the upper left
And when you stream:
The old way:
And this shows the normal look of the recording light. And in the chat you can see who is recording.
All controls are fully customizable as all Minecraft key. You can match it to the start key of your favourite recording/stream software.
F6 - Starts(and ends) the recording
F7 - Starts(and ends) the stream
P - List all players who are currently in the recording mode
O - Forces the mod not to the red light
Now it's your turn
Please leave a comment on how you like it and possible suggestions.
updated for 1.4.4/1.4.5
You can see who records by holding tab
a glowing effect on the red light
0.4 Added streaming possibility (requested by Pahimar)
These are upcoming features of the next version:
I've always liked to know how things worked ever since I was little. So, how do the other clients on the server know that one person is recording? Does it send a packet to the server or in chat or something? Database? Does it send bat minions to the other players on the server with a written book saying so? I WANT TO KNOW! TELL ME NOW!!!! HAHAHABy the way, ER MER GERD FIRST UPVOTE! FIRST! FIRST!!!!!!!!
I am working on this for about a half and a week, because I actually forgot to make this mod. So I started searching and found very helpful information on the ForgeWiki. I recommend you to look there, because I learned how to do packets in forge on the tutorials page. But to answer your question yes, I am using packets. I send a packet to the server which includes the name. On the server, I am waiting for these packets to send it to the other clients and to store internally in a vector as the clients do. So in my vector is filled with everyone who is recording, so i only have to check, if there are any players in the vector.
I hope you got an overview on how my mod works and can can develop your own mods.
Oh my god, a friend of mine told me to do so before the release but I said I can do that later. And now you say exactly the same
So I think I know, what to du next. I will implement it later today, european time.
But thanks for your attention!
So I've updated the thread now because of the new version. TheLoucozade, the mos is so far ready because all features I wanted are implemented. You can now make your review of it, I would be pleased if you do so.
