This mod uses Mod Loader in order to be backwards compatible with Beta 1.7.3 mods. This means you can install beta 1.7.3 mods on beta 1.7.4. However if you install a mod that changes the HUD GUI display the mod will auto revert to saying its Beta 1.7.3 for compatibility reasons. So don't worry if installing Zombe's modpack suddenly made it appear like beta 1.7.3, you are on beta 1.7.4! This mod uses low value block IDs, starting from ID: 97 so most mods made in 2011 should work since they used high block IDs in order to be compatible with future Mojang releases. And yes this does work with TooManyItems (so don't ask again).
The 1.7.4 client is backwards compatible with 1.7.3 servers! A 1.7.4 server does not exist yet that's why I am looking for server developers in order to make this a bukkit plugin!
Inventory Editor Info:
The Inventory Editor is included because the main problem with old Minecraft version is the lack of tools. That is why InvEdit is included and updated to support Minecraft Beta 1.7.4's Blocks and Items. The revisions of the Inventory Editor reflect the revisions of the mod, so R3 works with Revision 3 of the mod. If sometimes a new version of Inventory Editor is released before the mod it might include upcoming blocks/items. Please don't try using these before you update your client!
InvEdit used to be maintained by copyboy and was written C#.
Manually Updating to a newer revision Instructions:
If you have played Beta 1.7.4 Revision 1 then you can update it by simply downloading Beta 1.7.4 Revision 2 and installing it over your old install and the updater will take care of the rest.
You do not need to download Mod Loader again to update your client. You only need to download Mod Loader to install it for the first time on a vanilla b1.7.3 jar.
Multiplayer Server Mod is being worked on. (Hopefully bukkit compatible!)
Currently the mod works with Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 servers
Support the mod and convince others that Minecraft Beta was better by using this signature!
A very clever 2 way booster system built using the mod: (For single track dual direction minecart systems)
Carts coming both ways will get push boosted with the carts on the side rails and re-join with the main tracks down the line. (It is missing 1 minecart on the top track (closest to the ocean) at top left for testing purposes)
And its out! Revision 2 is here! The mod also changed name because Minecraft beta 1.7.3 updates mod was not very catchy and could create confusion between Mojang's 1.7.3 update and the mod updates. From now on its the Minecraft Beta 1.7.4 mod and the mod's versions are called Revisions to reduce confusion. As of now we are on revision 2.
Revision 2 Changelog:
+Polished Bricks (For all you classic lovers out there)
*Power rails are slightly more effective!
*The good old "Minecraft Beta 1.7.3" version is shown on top left like in other beta versions (I really don't get why they removed this?)
*Press F3 to see the update revision you are on. (Top line marked after "Rev.")
I came back to MC after years knowing that I would most definitely not be playing the newer releases. I found Better than Wolves and it it what minecraft should have been, but it still wasn't that simple, humble old minecraft that I so craved. I will remember you, for when I return to beta =) (so damn happy you put the minecart boosters back in x) )
Dude, this would be genius, if it wasn't for the fact that...
Nobody plays 1.7.3. Still, i LOVE this version, and if i still used it i would use this mod, and i appreciate someone would make a mod, in 2015, dedicated to my favorite version of Minecraft. (Rant-ish thing incoming) I just think the game has gone downhill too much since beta 1.7. It's become more of an RPG, too... Diluted, for it's simple outset. This was meant to be a game about building whatever. Now it's a game focused MUCH more heavily of survival and killing, mining, and exploring. Yes, if you wanted to do that in 1.7, you could, but it was still much simpler in just that set than what it is today. I dont know why they added all that stuff, honestly, just a creative mode would have been fine, and all the content from today BESIDE the new combat (Crits and whatnot, not the 1.9 update), experience, hunger, and other stuff. I still love 1.7.3 and wish it was still a largely supported minecraft version, like, a version called Minecraft Classic- And i dont mean the CLASSIC versions from 2009/2010. I mean basically, a revamped version with 1.7.3 with some of the new stuff, like blocks from beta 1.8 until now, no strongholds, no XP, hunger, Imagine it. Bring back minecraft 1.7.3, but better. That's be a great idea.
tl;dr Everything newer than Beta 1.7 sucks and doesn't suck.
Sorry 'bout that rant. I just... miss the golden days of Minecraft, Y'know? Mods., please don't warn me for going off track ;_; My nostalgia is to blame. But seriously, please don't. all that was technically related to this mod, so... Yeah.
