Just released version 11. The grab-prerelease command will attempt to download the current week's prerelease. It may not function 100% perfectly. Feedback is very welcome. You should really only use it on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after a prerelease comes out. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday it might try to download a prerelease that isn't out yet.
I've also turned back on output for all uses of wget.

Jan 26, 2012I just released version 10. update-lwjgl now gives you lwjgl 2.8.3 because that is the latest version that works with Minecraft.Posted in: Minecraft Tools
I also made it so that you don't lose stats, servers.dat, lastlogin, and options.txt when switching stashes; something I had not done completely properly in the last update.
Nov 24, 2011I've just uploaded version 9.Posted in: Minecraft Tools
This adds screenshots, stats, servers.dat, lastlogin, and options.txt to the exclusion file. These files transcend individual states just like saves and texture packs.
To take advantage of this you will need to
Then open Mineshell and rerun the "install" command. Future states will be much smaller now. Especially if you take a lot of screenshots.
Aug 25, 2011So the piston clocks can go to 1 in multiplayer (supposedly), but only 2 in single player. I figured we could OR together two alternating piston 2-clocks to get a 1-clock. Screenshot below.Posted in: Redstone Discussion and Mechanisms
It can go anywhere from 1 to 16 ticks. It can be flipped on and off with the lever, and it will stay on between saving and loading.
I hope it's helpful, but if not, whatever.
I'd appreciate links to better designs if there are any. I checked the wiki and didn't see one. That's what made me think this might be worth sharing.
The really big advantage over a pure-repeater 1-clock is that it survives world reloads because there's always at least one repeater that's off.
Also no slimes required, so you can build this early on in a fully legitimate game (meaning no mods or cheats).
Aug 5, 2011Okay I just put out an update.Posted in: Minecraft Tools
Now the play-offline command might be a little controversial. It could allow pirates to set their username when playing multiplayer. However, minecraft already has infrastructure to combat this. There is the online-mode server setting namely. So the only servers this will work on are servers that expressly allow it.
For example if you want to host a minecraft server on your home lan and your internet connection is out. Or if you're sharing your minecraft copy with young siblings and want to play multiplayer with them on lan.
Also sometimes minecraft.net doesn't fully crash. It just gets really really slow. This usually happens when new updates come out. The minecraft launcher has a timeout of 10 minutes when it tries to authenticate! This means you could be waiting up to 10 minutes while it tries to login, just to be told that it failed. I find that really annoying. Now you can skip it if you know minecraft.net is clogged up.
edit: Also it fixes the bug you pointed out aata844. Thanks.
Aug 4, 2011Thanks. :smile.gif:Posted in: Minecraft Tools
I don't get a lot of replies. Most tools and mods need constant maintenance to keep up with Minecraft, but I really don't have much to maintain here. It will keep falling lower on the forum index and keep getting lost.
I'd bump it now and again, but I can't stand shameless bumpers.
I'm considering rewriting in perl so that it'd be cross platform, but I'm not actually sure I want to deal with all the Windows users who can't figure out how to use a command line.

May 12, 2011Mineshell - Simplifies Minecraft Maintenance TasksPosted in: Minecraft Tools
- Disclaimer: This is a bash script. It probably only runs on Linux. It might work with cygwin, or a properly configured Mac (with the right commands), but those two are untested and unsupported.
- Manage your mods The main purpose of using Mineshell is to manage different copies of Minecraft with different combinations of mods installed. These copies are called "stashes". Here are some example stashes you might make:
- Too Many Items + Single Player Commands
- Too Many Items + Portal
- More Creeps and Weirdos + Single Player commands
- Pokeball + Too Many Items
- Stop dreading Minecraft updates! You know how when Minecraft gets updated, it takes a while for all the mods to be updated? Well now you can keep a stash of the old version of Minecraft to play with the mods for a while, and still have a copy of the new version! You can easily switch back and forth during that limbo period.
- Backup your saves! Mineshell allows you to make incremental backups of your saves with just one command. What if you install a mod and it totally ruins everything? Just head to ~/.local/share/mineshell/ and recover one of your backups!
- Easily upgrade the Lightweight Java Game Libraries Minecraft relies on LWJGL on all platforms. Unfortunately copy that ships with Minecraft is woefully outdated. It actually causes a lot of bugs on Linux.
- Download: This is a bash script. If you don't know how to run it, then skip this link, and see below. Download from Dropbox with no ads and no waiting
- Installation Instructions:
So when you first get Mineshell you might do this to save a copy of Minecraft without any mods.
Then you should create a stash that has ModLoader and AudioMod installed. This will make it really easy to install extra mods in the future!
Then install your favorite combination of mods that use ModLoader. Let's just say Mo's Creatures, and the Pokeball mod.
Now if you ever feel like playing regular Minecraft again, or if you want to go back to the copy that has a clean ModLoader, you just use the unpack command.
If you ever forget what stashes you have made, there is a list command. To remove old stashes there is a remove command.
Do you get into situations where one of your keys will suddenly become "stuck"? This has killed me so many times when fighting creepers, or building up high. It's caused by out of date LWJGL!
Do you have issues where sounds will stutter and cut into each other? Outdated LWJGL!
Does Minecraft completely lose sound when you switch windows on it? Outdated LWJGL!
Mineshell includes an update-lwjgl command. You just enter that and it will download, unpack, and install the latest version of LWJGL. On top of fixing all the bugs listed above, this will even give you a performance boost! That's right. One simple command, and Minecraft will run faster.
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20566997/mineshell/mineshell.sh -O ~/mineshell.sh chmod +x ~/mineshell.sh ./mineshell.sh
You will now see the Mineshell prompt. Enter the following (replace the /path/to/minecraft.jar with the location of minecraft.jar on your system).
install path /path/to/minecraft.jar quit
Any time you want to play Minecraft, just do this:
I look forward to your feedback, and I hope this is helpful!
Apr 10, 2011Grickit posted a message on Better Than Wolves (Now With Bloody Stumps) Total Conversion! [V4.A2 Timing Rodent b upd: Nov 27th]Posted in: Minecraft ModsQuote from FlowerChild »Quote from VincentX3 »It seems like a good mod, but it really needs a title change. I thought this was going to improve the wolves somehow or give them armor.
Sorry, not going to happen. The title was intentional, and to make a point about the overall direction that Minecraft is taking in its development.
Awww. Where'd you get that thing on your shoulder? It's so cute! I want to get a chip just like that some day.
The ideas are great. It all works well. You've even got videos of it. But the name is just too pretentious for my tastes.
