This mod seemed like a great mod, I played around with it in Creative mode a little bit, so I decided to try it in survival. It was actually pretty much impossible, seeing as I couldn't even make a crafting table. Instead, I got a Crate!
Well, Shucks! Here I am talking about how this mod is so great and how Update 5.7 is the best for everyone! Did you also notice how it says that 5.7 isn't out yet? Well… considering 5.7 isn't out yet, why on earth did I leave something so crucial in the mod? Well, clearly you went to the media fire folder and downloaded 5.7 from there. At the same time this was happening, you were thinking "Wow, this mod author is quite an idiot! He put up the file for 5.7! What a stupid mistake". Then you reply to this post and dislike the 5.7 update completely, even though you were supposed look at the recipes and gameplay pictures/videos and rate 5.7! But (even though I'm not surprised someone found it) Thank you for downloading it! Also for giving it a chance in survival!
Actually, I didn't notice that it wasn't out yet, and it said "Release" on the zip file, so I assumed that when you say it is a release, it is actually a release. I haven't used this mod before 5.7, so I didn't dislike 5.7, but the mod as a whole. Also, I don't see any real reason to use the same recipe as anything in vanilla anyways, even if it is a pre-release or whatever you considered it, unless you are overriding an item there(Like 3D Furnace http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods/1288346-3d-furnace-v1-3a).
That gives me a great Idea, Thanks! I'm going to create my own crafting table, and add all my (and vanilla minecraft's) recipes, into that crafting table, so if I accidentally override a vanilla recipe, You could just use the vanilla crafting table for it! Let me know how you think about this!
I have mixed feelings about this idea. On one hand, it prevents foolish mistakes such as that one. On the other hand, adding a second crafting table just because you don't think when making the recipes just seems like laziness. My suggestion is that you clear out the "How do you like Version whatever" polls and add one on whether you should add this feature.
You know what you're saying, I respect you. Have you modded before?
P.S. I already created the table...
Using it as your overall crafting table is the general purpose, imagine the minor annoyance that could be caused if you go to craft something and choose the wrong crafting table. Still, I would add a config option to disable vanilla recipes in your table, in case, for whatever reason, people don't want them on it.
Great Ideas, Thank you for every suggestion you've gave, the were all very constructive. But the EB Crafting Table if reversible to the vanilla crafting table, For example, if you put a crafting table in either crafting tables, it will give you the EB crafting table, and vice versa. All recipes that include my mod cannot be performed on the vanilla crafting table. I added a config option (true/false) to see whether to enable EB Recipes on the vanilla crafting table, But I will also add your idea as a config option. Thanks for all the advice, you quite brilliant! You should mod, you'd be a great coder!
What do you use the crates for besides decoration? Two logs makes a normal crate that has 9 slots, but two logs also makes 8 planks, makes 1 chest that holds an entire inventory. I thought maybe the slots had a stack limit higher than 64 to make them more compact or something but they don't...
Ah, thanks, never even thought about stacking them.
Agreed, to at least 16 stacks per crate since a single chest currently holds 27 stacks; 3 times the space of a crate in a single block.
Great Feedback! Will add more space to the Crates, or just add more crates, the size of the Chests or more! Or just change the misleading names of the crates. Thanks guys! Feedback/Criticism (Any Kind) is always welcome!
P.S. The new version has the Large Crate that holds as many as the Vanilla Large Chest!
With all due respect, the last time this mod was updated was a very long time ago (More than a year). Therefore, I do not plan to work on it anymore. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. But your error is probably because of a new forge version.
I do love this mod ,and still use it though with the newest forge no issue as of yet . I think it adds a lot of cool useful stuff to the game that I like ,and wouldn't want to go without . I hate to see it die like this .
