Just a reminder to loram. It sounds liek you are reaching the end of your rope. Unfortunately the role of anyone that is in the position of mentor is to keep a fresh mind with each person. You are quite knowledgable that tends to lead to frustration with basic questions. Some of the people asking the questions may be so new they don't know how to ask or search.
first thing the new member of the community/forum may not have any idea what to ask about. So the search bar may be entirely useless and as I have found return so many useless results that it is itself useless. So many modders, so few qualified. So many mods, so few worth even opening the page to.
And of course Loram this is not meant as an attack. Only as a reminder that there are those that are new. It took me a good four weeks to realize you could even mod the game. Then another few weeks to find a decent mod (SPC). then about 4 times posting to realize all I had to do was search for the right question and wait patiently.
First things first unless I am mistaken you have to have the paid for version of the game. Then simply log into the game and you will get a prompt to update it to current version of the game. Keep in mind though that this mod is still in version 1.2.3 while the game is in 1.2.4.
this means the mod will not function with the current version. Have no fear though Simo is one of the most dedicated mod creators out there. I am sure he will have the mod up to date fairly soon. When you are thinking well when is fairly soon. Just remember that this mods is like having two functional mods that each have hundreds of available commands.
So anyway if you want to use the mod you will have to stick with game v 1.2.3 untill this is updated. Just make a bookmark of the first page post and check it daily. It will show up soon. As you may have gathered here most of this community has grown weary of the "when is it going to get updated?" question.
So rule of thumb be patient and don't update your game till the mod update has released.
ok i need to lay this out so i can get the best help possible
i have minecraft version 12.2
i want to get the single player command prompt mod please tell me exactly how to do it im freakin out because of my frustration i cant even find the download button for the mod lol,
i know im a noob. but if u know and have this mod please explain lol
I WANT TO SUCCESSFULLY DOWNLOAD THIS WITHIN THE HOUR SO I CAN GO TO BED IV'E BEEN UP ALL NIGHT TRYIN TO FIGURE IT OUT!! HELP
will simo release this mod for my version or do u think i should switch to v 1.2.3
2) A fun-ish mod is millenaire, but keep in mind it is buggy and rather exhaustive to uninstall. So use it at your own risk while knowing that you will have to remove all mods to remove that one mod. (Or I haven't found an easy way to remove individual mods anyway (feel free to chim in here if there is a way community))
3) Rei'sminimap is a great mod that helps you keep you bearing as well as some other basic funtionalities that make the game more appeasing... such as adding visible waypoints.
4) google around a bit for minecraft mods/modlists. things along those lines. I don't remember the exact wiki page but there is a page that lists nearly all the mods, a link to there page, and a short description of what the mod can do. you will know when you have found the page because it is a chart with listing on the left and appropriate info catagorized on the right. I believe it even has a listing in the chart that tells you if the particular mod is up to date.
5) not realy a mod so much as a skin tool. Look up painterly. It has been a while since I have been there as well. But it let you pick skins for all the differnet blocks in the game. you may like to use this because it will allow further customization to the look of your build. ( I gave up on this one only because when I was using it the game was updating every week, and I got tired of picking the same tiles over and over. I think they have a way to save your selection now though.
the mod is not yet updated to the recent 1.2.4. release. It will likely be a few days to a week before the mod is updated.
If you have already updated to 1.2.4. Then you will need to dig around for a bin download for version 1.2.3. Then take that bin file and replace the current bin folder with it. Of course as always online content not directly from its vendor has risks. The safer thing to do is wait.
I know I saw a page a long time ago that linked to the different version downloads. I don't remember if it was here on the forums a wiki or a private page though.
Derp sorry missed the small print at the bottom of your post. Yes stick with 1.2.3. You can continue your build or start your build with it. The changes in 1.2.4 don't look dramatic so I am sure your build will be compatible once the SPC for version 1.2.4 comes out.
This is a link to the version history on wiki. Along the right side of the chart is a download colum. go down to 1.2.3 and download it if you need it to run SPC. then simply load the game and DON'T CLICK the update now button instead click the not now button and you will stay in version 1.2.3.
Me gusta!!! I thought that I did something wrong, but its just that i'm 1.2.4 that makes me feel much better knowing i just have to wait a little bit until i get to use this mod (which looks pretty friggin awesome by the way)
For those that updated and can't use the mod look back a few pages I listed a link where you can download the previosu versions of the game bin. If you download the 1.2.3 from the page I linked you will be able to use your mods during the interim.
Cant Be done, Unless Mojang Were to pay the owners of Modloader and MCP for the rights to their mod. If not, hose mod makers would have thier mod stolen from them and they wouldnt make any money.
I am aware of that. Are you aware that the mods that have been implemented have been paid for or given over? currently it is a suggestion if they go for it the details are theirs to arrange... I think the 3m$ bonus that was shared around is indicative of finances that can cover it.
My understanding is that one modder recieved 10k$. Currently that is based on rumor mill, I am not sure that it is factual.
Course that may or may not be true if you are using the free version.
Did you look here?
c:// ---> users ---> (whichever user you installed MC on) ----> appdata ---> roaming ---> .mincraft ---> Bin (delete the whole folder)
If you did and its not there (paid version) just log into the game it will download automatically. Again unless your using the free version. In which case I can offer no advice, because I have no idea what is contained in that version.
I'll go to great lengths to help someone that wants to learn but, the MSgt in me expects that before they scream help they have tried to resolve their own problem.
If I had 25¢ for every time I see a question with the exact same question answered immediately above, my retirement fund would be much greater.
Engaging one's brain is key to solving any problem. I just want to see it engaged before the "Help" plea is added here. I think it a reasonable request.
Always engage your brain before engaging your vocal chords (or keyboard) and all will think you a much wiser person!!!
