Hey everyone , Recently I've started single player modded superflat survival. I really wanted to catch up on updates, since I didn't play thaumcraft 4, and Blood magic, just played a couple of modpacks that included them, but didn't delve into these ones specifically. I also didn't play around with Tinkers' weaponry, just the tools. So I have a few questions for you guys that play these mods more frequently and know them better:
1) Is there a way to disable ore generation in overworld? I plan to gather most of my ores from smelting tool parts and surface (a.k.a. gravel) ores and mystcraft ages (after I get decent pages). As of right now I didnt mine a single ore from the ground, becuase when I was constructing my base it was all pretty much in dirt layer level. 2) I wanted to create a crossbow from TCon, but I am not sure about best materials for it. For Limbs and Stock I got: Thaumium, Flint, Wood, Bone, Paper, Iron, Bronze, Copper, Obsidian, Alumite and Pig Iron (no, there are no slimes in overworld preset of superflat) and for Bowsting I only got string. Suggestions, ideas? 3) Because I am new to thaumcraft 4 (last time i played 3), i disabled taint node generation. Also I'm that kind of a player who takes their time for everything, taint usually ruins everything around. And I plan on re-enabling it after I get more advanced with this mod and learn to controll it. So my question is - does disabling taint affect progression in thaumcraft in large scale? 4) Are there any neat mods that you think would suit my superflat survival? And before someone suggests, no I am not going to add ExNihilo and its addons. This isn't about creating everything from scratch, but working on resource scarse land and making windows (mystcraft and runic dungeons) into other worlds to get resources from.
By the way, If you want to see my progress so far, or interested in my world, I started a thread in survival section, which you can find here. I'd be happy for any constructive criticism and/or if you answer some of my questions above.
Have a nice day!
Depending on the mods you have, you hay have a config file called CofH World. I'm fairly sure that you can disable overworld ore gen there. If not, there is probably a mod out there for disabling ore gen.
For your crossbow, slime is the best thing for the limbs (you might be able to find a slime island, I am pretty sure that they still spawn in superflat worlds).
Taint in Thaumcraft 4 is not nearly as bad as it was in 2 or 3. It spreads incrediable slowly (maybe one or two blocks every 6 hours real time) so unless you have this world hosted on a server, it's really nothing to worry about. The taint aspect (Victum) is needed for a couple of the later researches, especially if you want to get into the eldrich stuff, and taint biomes are the only way to get that aspect. Tainted aura nodes also contain a lot of compound aspects, so they are worth while having around.
As for other mods, I would probably recommend Botania, Forbidden Magic and Thaumic Tinkerer (Both are thaumcraft 4 addons). Botania has a lot of useful things in it, but there is one flower in botania called the whisperweed. It gives you infinite aspects, which is a really useful thing for thaumcraft 4 research, but it does send you slightly crazy.
I hope this all helps, and best of luck with your world.
