It is a modpack for 1.6.4
It is a stempunk era fantasy inspired by great rpgs such as "Golden Sun" and "Final Fantasy".
Whether you want to trek through a frozen cave sprawling with monsters in your Magitek armor, or you want to race your friends on a dragon, Dawn of the Renegade has it all!
-Mix ten unique elements for over 100,000,000 (yes, really) unique spell combinations! (REPLACED WITH AM2 BY NECESSITY)
-Acquire many unique sword skills such as sword spins, dash attacks, and rising cuts!
-Battle many bosses in the boss battle dimension "Limbo"!
-Visit many new dimensions!
-has volcanoes, ships, giant castles, etc!
-Train your own Spectral Army and fight through endless waves of foes
-uniqueish rpg skill system, with max hp up, stats, and did I say 1.6.4? Yeah, still pretty recent.
-upcoming 1.7.10 version in half a year!
If you like, +1 it on its main page.
Level Up your max health, obtain hats, and get magics/sword skills! All are permanent even on death!
Plus, it adds more 3D weapons now such as the Ultima Weapon....
....and equippable bound souls which are like golems!
1. My world crashed.
-good chance it's my fault, but I test it constantly. It hasn't happened yet....
-alternatively, you could be running Java 8.20. Please don't. Modpacks won't work if so.
2. Ehh...my world is in a CRASH LOOP!
-uh oh! Sorry about that. Use mcedit to remove what is causing it. If it's armor, delete your player folder. WILL wipe inventory.
As I said, this pack is basically crash-proof, though.
3. I can't figure out how to do this!
-Ask me, I'll respond. Or look on the mod's page/wiki.
-If it's buildcraft, don't bother. You weren't supposed to. XD
4. Are there any things I should try?
a. Build Magitek Armor. Shift right click to add coal. Configure fire beam controls, shoot smelting beams.
b. Try out ACTUALLY USING sword essences, they're awesome.
c. NEI should help you with crafting/usage.
d. Build a twilight portal, ore dimension portals with any vanilla ores, and go to hell! (Nether is revamped.)
e. Eternal frost, right click ants, get all the weapons on armor stands.
5. Anything else I should know? Tips?
a. Avoid giant foes. THEY WILL KILL YOU.
b. Have diamond armor? Still avoid them.
c. Try mining. There are multiplication ores, deadly dungeon foes with epic rewards, and exclusive underground stuff.
d. Try this for everlasting tools.
Works on EVERYTHING with durability.
e. Shift-Right click a table upgrade on enchanting table.
5. My controls are all funky.
-assign them immediately. Ran out of spaces? Use number keypad or assign all useless controls to one button.
6. Is this final fantasy based?
-No. It's FF INSPIRED!
7. I lost all my magics.
-You have keepInventory or have a charm of keeping. Don't use either while holding (and dying with) a spellbook.
8. Can mod x be added?
-probably. If you ask me. And these are met.
a. Not too overly complicated.
b. Fits theme.
c. Doesn't crash the game. XD
d. Permission can be obtained. Ex: Not mutant creatures.
I also noticed that the left control key is somewhat blocked. No matter what I assign it to, it won't work.
Re-assign the stat menu key, if you mean the walk left button. If you mean the left ctrl key, there are not many available keys so ditch some controls you will never use on one key. Or it could be your keyboard.
Yes, left ctrl key. My keyboard is fine and it is currently unassigned, so I don't really know why I can't put anything at all to that key. I usually use sneak on that because I just can't get along with shift anymore.^^
Edit: Nevermind. Something was very sneaky, so I didn't see it. Problem solved.
Ah, nice pun. Glad you could fix it.
Anyway, there will probrably be 1 more update for this modpack coming soon. Because I am working on its released sequel, dawn of the crusader.
Too bad the battle music doesn't pick up on hostiles in general.
But good work on this modpack. Kinda gives me more of a Dark Souls feeling than of a general rpg... As I died so many times by now.
Battle music does not have that option in the 1.6.4 version unfortunately. And stay away from snow biomes and mantises and anything huge from orespawn until you are ready. I personally recommend craft everlasting tools with soulbound from an upgraded enchantment table so you do not lose anything ever. Also, try the flight ring. It consumes coal for flight, so you can pick up lost items without /gamemode c.
Edit: pun- something was very "sneaky". Sneak control lol. It is funny intentional or not.
Edit2: never played dark souls, what is it like?
Yeah, the hint with the mantis was a bit late. Got me while looking for some place to dig in.In terms of weaponry and tools, I'll have a lookg for Ars Magica.
Dark Souls has the reputation to be a killer (literally). Traps and hidden enemies are around any corner and you have hard times dealing with a boss on the first try. However this does not count for Dark Souls 2. But the general combat is more of action rpg with a focus on stamina management.
My avatar is my spellblade character from Dark Souls 2 by the way.
Also, you might wanna check the recipe for "Last sword you'll ever need". I could have 4 of rank 10 right now.
I found some totems in a goblin village and you can make those swords out of them.
Underground, you will find multiply ores. Spam them with the best compact blocks of ingots for infinite armor. You can make iron, emerald, diamond, and gold dimensions with blocks as a frame and corresponding lighters. That is how to survive a mantis raid. Kill gold apple cows ALWAYS. Yeah, I know about the last sword. It is a bit of an exploit right now until I remove idfix. But try getting one legit before doing that.
Your description of dark souls sums up the entire modpack.
But the last sword is pretty useless against the strongest bosses from the pack......
And it does not even kill the majority of bosses which take capped damage, you need big bertha and the guardian sword for that.
Sounds.....off. I do not have any world-gen specific mods. Try making a new world, allowing more data, restarting minecraft, restarting your computer or whatever. I could not imagine only player data being overwritten....
Restarted Minecraft and it works again... What was that, though? Even the pyramid that randomly spawned on top of my base is gone now.
Well, too bad about the stuff in the chest, I already had. Nothing I can do again on the other hand.
I do not at all know what happened.
But pyramids contain hard bosses sometimes if they are ender pyramids, so that could have been dangerous just sitting there.
You can spawn it all back in, though, right?
Anyway I have a full set of ultimate gear and the only glitch I found on the 10 day playthrough was the last sword, which I barely convinced my (older) brother to throw into a pit of fire, because it was cheap.
Yes, this is akin to a mushroom biome. Guardians (anchients) and porcupines are the only mobs in prairie biomes and they are both nuetral. Provoke them for a challenge, porcupines heard in an entire armada and guardians are as powerful as iron golems.
Again, prairies and mushroom biomes are safe biomes and are usually mantis-free.
Zombies and skeletons, I believe, have a rare chance of being here too.
