The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Super Massive Tech
What is this mod all about?
This mod centers around stars, black holes, and all the powers and disasters that accompany them.
What can I do with this mod?
All of this mod is documented via ingame tooltips, if you would prefer to figure it out yourself, you may do so. I have provided some images down below for those who do not.
How do I get started?
The first thing you need to craft is called the Heart of Star, this will be your gateway into everything in the mod. Yes, it is quite expensive, but you can recoup some of the expense later.
Black Hole Storage: Can store 2^40 (about 1 trillion) items AND liquids (of one type).
Black Hole Hopper: Pulls from inventories up to 6 blocks away, and inserts them into the inventory it is attached to. Also pulls in nearby items.
Star Harvester: Creates power from stars. The rate is variable based on the star. Looks really cool.The base block:Gif of the animation:
This block must first have a star container inserted into it, then a star. It will then begin to generate power.
Waypoint: This block serves as a marker for anything you may need. It shows up visibly in the sky, much like a beacon, and can be named and colored. It will show up on the HUD of the Gravity Helmet.
Black Hole (NYI):?????????
Oh and did I mention that most of these blocks have their own local gravity? Yeah.
Stars: Currently the main item in the mod. Created in a violent explosion, these items can provide you power for a loooong time. They are also used in most recipes.
Gravity Armor: Protection from a large amount of damage, as well as a large array of useful modules, see below:
Description of all current modules:
Gravity Resist The base effect of the armor, conteracts all gravitational sources and makes you float as if you were in microgravity. Applies to: ALL Modes: ON, OFF
Tool-Switcher When activated, it picks the best tool in your hotbar for the current block you are mining. Applies to: Chestplate Modes: ON, OFF
HUD Shows a compass on the top of your screen, and also some useful notifications in the bottom left, such as when armor abilities are toggled on and off.Also allows you to see all your waypoints and their names, so that you may easily navigate to any of them. Applies to: Helmet Modes: ON, Compass Only, Text Only, OFF
Field: Anti-Grav:All entities nearby, in a certain (configurable) radius, will slowly float upwards around you, as if their gravity was reversed. Repulsor: Repels all nearby entities from the player. Attractor: Attracts all nearby entities to the player. Applies to: Chestplate Modes: Anti-Grav, Repulsor, Attractor, OFF
An achievement system! This mod has many achievements to help guide you along, as well as some enhancements for vanilla achievements.
In-game config editing! This mod is among the first to support the new forge feature. From the main menu, simply go to mods -> select Super Massive Tech -> config, and you will be able to configure most anything without restarting the game!
This mod is in an alpha state. While it is mostly stable many things are temporary and/or missing.
Here is a basic list:
Recipes are temporary. Many of the Black Hole items have stars in their recipe where it would be a black hole.
The waypoint recipe is much more expensive than I would like, but I am missing some features in the waypoint block required to change it.
Black holes are NYI, and will be a major part of the mod. See the poll at the top of the page.
Visuals will improve. I realize the stars are a bit lackluster at this time.
More mod support will come. I need NEI plugins for some of my recipes and things like that.
Downloads (1.7.2 and 1.7.10):
Notice: I am currently working on black holes and doing a major overhaul, moving much of the mod's code to a new core mod. You can find unsupported dev builds here.
