January 13th 2012
I'm realy sorry for my behavior in last months. I was realy bussy in my life, so I haven't time, for watching forums, responding and stuff. The thing is that from today, the Moon is officially canceled. Please don't ask for reasons, just take it as a fact. Basicly the whole thing grow over my head.
But to at least a little repay for your patience and support, the last thing I will do is to release The Moon source for free for anyone, who has the balls to make something great of it.
If you suggesting some new idea, it's great. But I don't find suggestions as "add this mob..." any helpful. I'm not against adding new mobs, but currently I find it more annoying than challeging for players. Please don't ask for Moon version of current mobs, there wont be any.
[*]New ores - but still don't know which
[*]New hostile mob
[*]Some kind of atmosphere thingy - oxygen generator maybe
[*]MC 1.8 compatibility
How to get there
To get to The Moon you have to build a portal. The portal looks same as Nether portal, but is made from cheese, because as you Moon is made from cheese, isn’t it? To activate the portal use Sonic Screwdiver. As you find out later the cheese myth isn’t really true, but every there is a little bit of truth in every tale.
There is also another way to get there. You can use Space ship. First build a BuilderBot, provide it some materials and fuel, and wait for your new great rocket.
Living on The Moon
On Moon there are few changes against Minecraftia. As you know, Moon doesn’t have an atmosphere. So you have to wear super-duper Moon Suit or you will suffocate in no time. Also because of absence of atmosphere you cannot place certain blocks including plants, fluids and fire operating crafts (furnaces, torches). You also cannot sleep on Moon. If you want to smelt ores or use torches. No problem. Just take a piece of Minecraftia with you. It’s really easy, just craft a Moon Tent for you. Tent unites a protection and portability. You want to move on? Just pack your tent and head to adventure.
The Moon has a lower gravity than Minecraftia. So you can jump higher and fall deeper at ease. But this could be a little contra productive. So if you want to jump a little use duck jump i.e. jump while sneaking.
The Moon is always there when you are scared of filthy monsters wandering around your home, looking silently from its height down at us. He never helps you. But now you have the chance for payback. Get ready and strike the Earth! Erhm, Moon. Strike the Moon!
There are some videos made by you! Thanks for every each of them.

NOTE: In some videos there is a weird Moon Suite texture. It's my fault, in first release I forgot to add texture files. It's fixed now.

New Blocks and Items Cheese
You will have to use it for portal. Cheese is edible, break Cheese block into slices and enjoy the delightfull taste.
Top Minecraft scientist copied this technology directly from NASA, so it has to work, sure? It’s like the ordinary cloth but it’s reinforced with golden coating, which provides airtightness and blocks cosmic rays.
Your very own piece of homeland in vast nothingness of Moon. To build one you will need a Tent Block, Sonic Screwdriver and flat solid area. First dig out one block and replace it with Tent Block, then right click while holding charged Sonic Screwdriver and voila you have your Moon Tent ready. Inside the tent same rules as on the surface apply. You don’t have to wear Moon Suit. You can place all blocks (except Bed) use torches and so on. If you want to move on, simply click the Tent Block again and Moon Tent will pack into small carry able package.
On Moon it’s kinda dark, but ordinary torches don’t work here. Problem? Not really, just use these Moon Lamps!
This piece of clothing is the most important part of your wardrobe. It protects you on surface of the moon. It provides same protection as leather armour so take care of it, but it grants you ability to breath in vacuum on Moon surface. Moon Helmet
This is the most important tool for Moon explorer. It has 30 uses before it turns off. To make it operative again you have to recharge it. Note: You can only recharge a fully depleted screwdriver.
Bauxite is pretty common ore found on surface. You will need it to smelt Aluminium ingots.
Builder Bot Dock
With your just smelted aluminium ingots, you can cratf a Builder Bot Dock. You can operate the dock by right clicking it with Sonic Screwdriver. Then just follow instructions. This is the key to your new Space Ship. Builder Bot is powered by coal or charcoal.
Credits for BBot texture goes to tyronblade
To build the Rocket you will need Rocket Core. When the Rocket is ready just power the Rocket Core and rigth click it. That's all.
WARNING! Don't use Rocket elsewhere than Rocket. Results are unpredictable.
Regolith aka Moon Soil is pretty common on Moon surface. You can use it to effectively craft TNT.
If you are upgrading from previous version, you have to delete all files from old version and then install the new version. Also the saves are'n compatible, because of change in IDs.
I would like to thank Risugami and Shockah for their tools, which enabled developement of this mod. Many thanks goes to Mojang as well, for their great game.

Q: I get this error:
A: You don't have moon.ini file in correct location.
Q: How do I build the portal?
A: First create a vertical frame 4 by 5 from cheese. Then right click to activate it witk Sonic Screwdriver.
Q: How do I build a tent? It says "Couldnt build a tent." What should I do?
A: Well placing a tent is a bit tricky. First you have to make sure you have a flat area 8 by 8 block. Above these platform there have to be at least 4 block of free space (air). Then dig a hole in the middle of this platform and fill it with tent block. This flat platform will be repalced with tent floor.
Q: When I step into portal, I get message about entering the Nehter or the screen freezes with message "Saving Chunks". What should I do?
A: Currently there is some problems with traveling through portal. It seems that The Moon isn't currently compatible with other mods. I personally used clean MC and it worked just fine. Along with TMI. Also make sure you have correct version of ShockAhPI.
Q: How do I get Space Ship?
A: You have to build Builder Bot, fuel him and provide him building materials.
Q: How do I get Builder Bot?
A: You have to craft Builder Bot Dock, see recipes.
Q: How do I use SpaceShip?
A: First you have to power the Rocket Core. Use button, lever, resstone torch, pressure plate...
It's same as powering Iron Doors. The easier approach is to attach lever to core and pull it.
When Core is powered right-click on it.
A lot of people talked about making a moon, but you're the only one that I know who actually made one. Perhaps it so you can take moon rocks and use a compressor to make it into a stronger material, it could work kinda like a furnace
