    Is there a list of sites, that host original mods also - i.e. sites where you can go and safely download mods and support the original creators? It's a jungle for a noob :S


    minecraft.curseforge.com, mods.io/mods, modlist.mcf.li

    Oh, and I was editing the json file when I realized coolsquid mixed up Redistribution and Monetization.

    If you use the json (anyone?), take note of this


    Ouch. Gonna fix that right now.

    Thank you! Changing it in items.cfg worked just fine. I have a couple more questions, though. First of all, when I right click TNT with a flint and steel, it just drops the TNT block. I checked, and the only thing I saw that might do it is this:


    B:noTNT=false


    But it's set to false, so it shouldn't be affecting it, right? Is there another default TNT setting somewhere?


    Also, before I put in SquidUtils, pressing the / key brought up the text chat bar with a / already typed. With SquidUtils installed, it brings up the text chat bar, but with no /. It's a very minor difference, but one I noticed. Is there a setting for this, and also, why is this a setting? It just seemed like an odd thing to change.


    Thanks again!


    Update to the latest SquidUtils hotfix (was released a few hours ago).

    I'll have to look into that.

    I wanted to change the durability of wooden tools, so I changed this section in toolmaterials.cfg from this:


    wood {
    D:attackDamage=0.0
    I:durability=59
    D:efficiency=2.0
    I:enchantability=15
    I:harvestLevel=0
    }


    to this:


    wood {
    D:attackDamage=0.0
    I:durability=10
    D:efficiency=2.0
    I:enchantability=15
    I:harvestLevel=0
    }


    But when I tried using wooden shovels to test it, they still seem to have normal durability. I dug up 11 blocks, and the damage bar still showed it as mostly intact (And besides, it shouldn't be able to dig 11 times with a durability of 10). Is there something else I need to set or change to make this happen? Or is this a bug? I LOVE how many options SquidUtils gives to customize things, but am just having trouble getting things working. Any help would be appreciated.


    Thanks!


    Edit: This is using:

    SquidAPI-1.1.15

    and

    SquidUtils-2.1.4


    You'll actually have to go to Items.cfg, find "minecraft:wooden_pickaxe", and change its maxDamage. The ToolMaterials.cfg durability field is useless, I'll remove it when I get time.

    I was just thinking, we have many, many modders in this movement, but I think that to make it more well known and accelerate our actions, we should try to get some mod reviewers or some people that play modded games to join us. Please inform me of any that we already have within our ranks.


    Well, direwolf20 kickstarted this campaign with a tweet, and I think Atlanticraft tweeted some stuff too. That's the only known YouTubers I recall supporting us.

    Thank you :)

    When will it stop getting blocked by the plugins though?


    When the plugin author, bilde2910, gets time to push an update. I'll send him a message.

    softonic: safe DLs...thats apparently a LIE. Don't trust softonic, folks!


    (Thats only because on GitHub, softonic's rating was 5 points, 5 points, 5 points, and "Malware Alert!")


    Never trust freeware sites, always download files from the original source. IIRC, Softonic was the site that offered me Minecraft 1.9 <.<

    Quote from Tywilburn16»

    Honestly if i make a mod, im not making it public. Private mods cant be reposted becuase they cant get them.


    Remember that there are more friendly people than reposters :)

    Quote from Timelordtoe»

    That's
    a good policy to have. If they allow their website to host reposts, and
    do nothing about it, then they should be held equally responsible for
    the repost. That being said, it all really depends on the size of the
    forums, and the staff that moderates it. It's somewhat unreasonable to
    expect a group of 5-10 people to dredge through thousands of threads,
    just looking for one breach of intellectual property. Nevertheless, I
    think it should be our responsibility to inform such staff of a breach
    of intellectual property, in the event that we find one. There's no
    point complaining that something's broken when you're refusing to fix
    it.


    Apologies for the terrible analogy.


    Their forums aren't too big, and it wouldn't be too hard for them to get a few voluntary moderators. Community owners have a responsibility to keep their forums clean for law violations.

    Quote from Mc_Maps»

    I'm in the process of making a minecraft mod site, and I'm wondering about what your thoughts are about what is an acceptable way to go about doing it in respect to mod makers.

    The site in question simply has 100% uniquely written reviews / descriptions for mods, and a download link to the official thread or site of the mod maker.

    This to me seems like a fair way to do it, and legally speaking is covered under fair use.

    What is other peoples' opinion on this approach?


    A mod site is acceptable if it doesn't redistribute files, uses minimal or no ads, and provides accurate information.

    On another note, what's the story with mDiyo? Am I missing something?

    He has declared Reika's mods unsupported, had log warnings against DragonAPI, and been quite hostile while talking to Reika.

    Hey CoolSquid, I still seem to be having that strange issue with the Falling Meteors Mod. Running Squid Utils 2.1.2 with Forge 1291 and the problem seems to persist even after messing around with the configuration files for the Meteor mod. It looks like the textures just aren't being read properly for the item icons or something, because the actual armor is rendered completely fine; No missing textures or strange behavior. I'll double check with AlexDGr8r and see if he can implement a fix or figure out why it's occurring. Any chance of seeing a way to blacklist specific mods or items in the meantime?


    AlexDGr8r is gonna fix it on his side :)

    As a small note, reporting a site on our tracker is likely to be more effective than reporting a site here, as I get email notifications from the issue tracker.

    And that's it for now, im not pretty sure about them, so a more experienced person should take a look. They steal a bit of money, downloads, and minecraft piracy.


    1. Added.
    2. Already on the list.

    Thanks for your contribution.
