New in Version 2.0: [New Installation, read below!]
Sadly this version is not compatible with the old one. This is caused by the huge number of internal changes. I tried to avoid it, but I didn't find a way without messing everything up.
Yay, finally updated for 1.3!
Moved from ModLoader to MinecraftForge
Photos now can now be in other shapes than square
Added Posters and teleportation photos
Added different types of cameras
Added different types of films
Added a memory card
Added Photographic filters
Added a Photo Processor Block and a Photo Station block
Added teleportation photos
Removed the camera creeper
The mod automatically disables itself when you join a server without CameraCraft installed
See below for all the details!
This version is a complete rewrite of the mod. If you find bugs, please report them below! Thanks.
The first thing you should craft on your journey through the world of CameraCraft is a Camera.
This will give you a normal camera, which works with films (see below).
To take a photo, open the camera inventory by performing a shift-right click with the camera in your hotbar. Then put a film in and close the inventory. Find a nice spot and do a right click to take the photo (You can also use the p-key on your keyboard for historical reasons. That key can be changed in the normal Minecraft Controls).
If you want to be a bit more fancy, you can try the digital camera, which works with a memory card instead of a film:
The Digital Camera has a few advantages over the normal camera:
You can view your photos on the camera, without printing them
You can delete photos from the memory card, which you don't like
You can take 50 instead of only 36 photos
But the digital camera also needs Batteries:
If you want to take photos with a digital camera, you first need to craft batteries, which is done like so:
This will give you a Battery with a power of 1 volt. You can increase the voltage of a battery up to 9 volts by adding Redstone dust to it:
The above example will give you a 3 volts battery, which can then be turned into a 5 volts battery and so on.
Each volt of a battery means you can take 1 photo. In the digital camera you have a counter, how many photos you've left with the current battery (after that, the camera will take a new battery from the stack).
Memory Cards are required for the Digital Camera. Craft them as follows:
There are 2 types of films, the colored film and the black and white film. You craft them like so:
Their function is to serve as storage for photos taken with the normal camera.
To view the photos, you first need to process the films with the Photo Processor:
The photo processor is used to convert films that are filled with images into Processed films which can then be printed. To use the photo processor, put in a film with photos on it and a bucket of water (you can also put in lava or milk, but that won't work )
The Photo Station is one of the most important blocks. It is used to print out your photos onto paper. To use it, you put in either a memory card or a processed film. Click on the button with a photo on it, to select the photos you want to print. A screen similar to the following will show up:
The small button on the left (red cross / green tick on it) selects if you want the currently shown photo to be printed. On the right you can select how big your photo should be (maximum is 4x4 Blocks). Right beneath the "Print"-Button you can see how much paper your current selection will cost. Click the Print-Button to start printing.
The photo station also has a small inventory for paper and ink. Each photo will use up 1 yellow, 1 cyan and 1 magenta dye and 1 piece of paper for each block the photo covers (e.g.: A 3 by 4 photo will use up 12 paper). The printed photos are also added to the inventory. The photo station also looks for adjacent chests and uses their inventory as a possible paper and ink supply or a place to store finished photos.
Each photo has some properties that are stored with it:
It's name which is chosen after you take it
The name of the player who took the photo (mainly for Multiplayer)
The location where the photo was taken.
To view these properties and the photo itself, just perform a right click with the photo in your hotbar. If you are the owner of that photo you can also rename it.
If you want to place a photo on the wall, you need to turn it into a poster:
When you right click a poster placed on a wall, the same screen will show up as if you had right clicked with the photo in your hotbar.
Both posters and photos can have a teleportation effect, which is achieved by combining them with an enderpearl in the crafting table. That will give them a glowing effect and when you right click with them, there will be a teleport button (enderpearl on it) that will teleport you to where the photo was taken.
In survival mode you need a so called "Teleportation Battery" to teleport using a teleportation photo. See below for more info.
When a teleportation photo is placed on the wall, you can "walk through" it.
A teleportation battery is needed to teleport using a Teleportation photo. Each battery has 10 uses, and they can be stacked up to 16. Just place them anywhere in your inventory, like you would with arrows for bows.
Another option (especially for server owners) is to use a Teleportation Enabler:
It will allow people in survival mode in a range of 50 Blocks to teleport using photos like if they were in Creative. Note that you must turn its crafting recipe on in the configuration if you want to obtain this in survival mode (see below for more info on the configuration)
Tripods can be used to take photos of yourself or to create a timer. Craft it like so:
You can place cameras on it. When you power the tripod with redstone, the camera will take a photo.
Please note that this is still in development and might have bugs. Also you can't open the inventory of the camera when it is placed. You need to pick it up. That will be changed later.
You may have noticed the additional slot in the camera inventory. You can put photographic filters there which will filter specific colors and let the photo look different.
Start with a transparent filter:
You can dye this transparent filter by adding yellow, blue, red or green dye to it. More filters are planned!
The Camera Creeper
Is removed now but will be added in a better version later.
The configuration can be found in .minecraft/config/CameraCraft.cfg. Use a normal text editor to edit it.
Here is a list of configuration options available: (default is marked bold)
allowCraftTeleporter=(true / false): set this to true to allow crafting of the TeleportationEnabler (see above)
allowForeignTripodPhoto=(true / false): to take a photo using a tripod a player is needed in range (100 blocks), that will take the screenshot. Set this to false to only use the player who placed the camera for this screenshot
allowFreeTeleport=(true / false): set this to true to allow teleporting like in creative in survival
allowTeleport=(true / false): set this to false to completely disable teleporting
shiftRightclick (true / false): set this to false if you dont like the new shift-rightclick behaviour
The Download is both for installation into server and client.
Open the mods-Folder in .minecraft (if its not there, create it)
Download the CameraCraft zip-File (see Download-Section above) and put it in the mods-Folder. Do not unzip it!
If you are running a Minecraft Server and want to install CameraCraft do the following (you don't need to do this if you want to join a CameraCraft server. Look above for how to install CameraCraft into your Client).
I noticed that there's a cameracreeper added by this. I spawned one, and when it died it dropped a camera. It'd be cool if they would make a house/wall and fill/cover it with photos of you. Taking stalker creepers to a new level xD
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Very cool idea！
But maybe I find a bug.
I make the copys of the photo by this way:when you put it on the wall,the one in hand will be still here.
And the photo is too big on the wall,could you add a config file to chang the size?
And you may use right click to shot and use "P" or others to open the GUI……
Sorry for my English.
As far as I can tell, a creeper with a camera stuck to its head. It has a chance to drop 1-2 cameras, but doesn't always drop one, and has the same behavior as a regular creeper. I don't know if they spawn normally though, I just found a spawner using NEI.
