Jan 24, 2013BF109pilot posted a message on Biomes O' Plenty - Over 50 new biomes, with new trees, plants, mobs, and more!I have a few good ideas that I thought I should put out there:Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Burning (or flaming, or fire) Swamp:
A biome with pools of lava, dead trees, ash, maybe some exposed stone, and special blackened trees that don't burn. There could be different lava source blocks that randomly spawn in the lava that have the exact same lava texture, but every certain number of ticks, has the chance to spew embers everywhere nearby lighting nearby players on fire. Plus there could also be tar blocks spawning either randomly in the biome, or in tar pits. Tar would be like mud, only you would sink deeper, and move slower.
It would be similar to a normal forest/jungle biome, but at the borders, it would slant steeply downward and the entirety of the biome would be at least 20 or so blocks under sea level.
It occurred to me that there was a massive map height increase in one of the past updates, and I didn't know if it was possible, but I would like to see mountains that extend to that upper limit. Starting out like extreme hills, and ending like crag.
Collision (or impact) Site:
A field biome that could be similar to any of the flat biomes in the mod or vanilla minecraft so far. But it would have multiple craters scattered across it with flaming netherack and other hellish blocks in them. Some of the craters might be bigger than others with ores inside or some of the bigger craters could have monster spawners. It would also have an ominous blackened flaming sky. The more interesting spawning system for these biomes could be that any biome spawned has a very small random chance of becoming one of the bombarded biomes, so a maple forest might randomly spawn with flaming craters and lava as if it had been bombarded. But that's not a specific biome, so I don't think it applies for the contest.

Yes they do.
Yes It might take a while but you don't upload a broken version.
Man, I've been waiting for this mod to update. Okay, well, could you send me a link to this other mod with both planes and vehicles, I'd rather like another one.
About the broken version, it's very likely that Flan knew that this version was broken but had a goal to release a Christmas update and was busy in his university (which incidentally happens to be what prevented him from updating to 1.3 and 1.4 until now), if he was having that much trouble, then going from 1.2.5 to 1.4.6 flawlessly could never happen and getting it done with such time constraints also could never happen. Plus, bugs are hard to fix, and college comes first. So, cut the guy some slack.

Right now I'm obsessed with making little rail bridges and tunnels for the trains.
I know, it's so satisfying, right?
Aug 24, 2012HHmm, I noticed a jukebox like device in the first class passenger car, I was wondering if there was any plan (or any current support) for the first class passenger car to play music, that would be wonderful! Thank you very much!Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Aug 24, 2012Hmm, I was thinking about the view you get while in the train, in a steam locomotive, the view really leaves a lot to be desired, so you go into 3rd person view, but what if you wanted to see everything from first person perspective and still see where you are going, perhaps Spitfire could add a front facing cam-shot from the side of a train, as if you were leaning out of the train to get a look around the massive boiler and/or smokestack (like the real engineers of that time). Who thinks that this would be a good idea?Posted in: Minecraft Mods

Wow, I truly know nothing of the redpower mod if it has 1000 blocks...
Well, I think it's mostly because there happen to be.......
half blocks of nearly every material
quarter slabs of every material
thinner slabs of every material
cover slabs of every material
corner plates of every material
bigger corner plates of every material
smaller corner plates of every material
plates with holes for every material
covered wires of '' ''
four different wires with [see above]
colors of wires '' '' color
four different kinds of wires with [see above]
anti-covers of every material
bigger and smaller anti-covers of every material
corner panels of every material
60+ assorted machines logic tiles and bluectrics
pnuematic tubes of every color
and much much more, if you really want to understand how much stuff there is, get recipe book, and have fun scrolling through (I believe it's close to 300-600 pages, but I don't use it anymore, so I'm not positive, may be less).
Conclusion: Redpower uses 1000+ blocks

Aug 18, 2012BF109pilot posted a message on Flan's Mod 5.5.2 Update : 1.12.2, 100s of new Skins! : Helicopters, Mechas, Planes, Vehicles, 3D Guns, Multiplayer, TDM, CTFNow, I'm not really positive about this whole modding business, but I BELIEVE that this mod uses forge and (if I'm not mistaken) forge was released for 1.3.2 as of 6 days ago. As I have stated before, I'm no modder, but I'm pretty sure that with a big mod like this (and being in college and all) that it would take more than 6 days to update it completely. (plus, modloadermp hasn't been updated to 1.3.2 as of what I have seen, so flan would either wait for it, or update it himself) I think that these are grounds to stop wondering, or complaining about not updating.Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Edit:and turbomodelthingy hasn't been updated yet either
Aug 15, 2012HHmmm, so it seems that forge may have updated to 1.3.1, sadly, just as they have done this, the people at Mojang have begun to near the update of 1.3.2, it's a shame, really.Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Aug 15, 2012Posted in: Minecraft ModsQuote from vaki472
where is the 1.3.1 version ? :@
AAIIEE!!! Let's start my count tomorrow. On all of my favorite mod's threads I'm going to count how many times people beg for an update or are completely oblivious to the NAME of the topic (which, coincidentally has the version that the mod is designed for in brackets BEFORE the mod itself is listed).

actually if you are worried about aesthetics,there is a way to reduce or rather eliminate the problem.
「build corners at a 45゜ angle instead of perfect 90゜turns」
EDIT : spitfire4466
Forge developer edition is out,you might want to take a look it it,its not on the default forge port so here is the other link ※http://jenkins.minecraftforge.net:7070/job/forge/
versions above 175 are recommended
Thank you, that should solve my problem, perhaps on bigger locomotives going on the sharp turns would derail them? Also, as a side note (as I still don't have minecraft access), last time I checked about trains going on the curves like that, they would zigzag, which looked terrible (sorry), has this been fixed?Quote from Dekim_Barton
we have enough "high speed locomotives"
being the destruction loving pyromaniac that i am, I think this needs to be made
Well, while I think rail guns are pretty cool, I believe that (as helldiver stated) it would look rediculous going around turns, imagine... a 100 ton rail gun, with at least two thirds of it sticking off the edge of the rails over a cliff.Quote from helldiver
I have never had problems...
-Do a clean install with a fresh minecraft.jar.
-Place the TrainMod in the Mods folder.
-Start a new world. If you get the "Saving Chunks" thing when loading, close Minecraft and start it again. Create a New World, once created, exit that world and load your old world. At least that's what I do and my world always loads.
Now on to bigger and better things...
Union Pacific SD-70
FMC modeller kept crashing on me (that's why the rear hand-rail is selected). Seems like it can only handle so much...
I'll be sending the files off to Spitfire tomorrow. I will do repaints of other Major railroads (more than likely BNSF, Northfolk Southern), once this locomotive is in game.
Repaints to other liveries is very difficult since the cab is very complicated. So I may only do the major railroads so long as they are simple.
Wow! You can count on my support for every amazing model you design for trains mod, this is amazing!

Have to concur with DAYdiecast.
Any wheel arrangement larger than n-4-0 is too long to fit the constraints of a curved peice of track without it looking awkward.
Even the locomotives I made look strange when rounding corners or reversing.
I've gotten two requests for 4-8-0s and 2-8-0s. That's too many wheels, and in order to represent them right I'd need at least 6 Blocks in length.
That means that in a turn, up to 4 blocks of locomotive will stick out. On tight curves near cliffs 60% of the locomotive will stick into the cliff.
If an n-8-n locomotive is reversed, the front half will clip into the tender, which looks wierd.
See this image:
no offense to DAYDiecast, his locomotive and cars are extremely beautiful!
Note the locomotive on the left and how far it extends. The three issues are: track curves, track curves over cliff sides, and when the locomotive reverses.
Note the locomotive on the right. It has a shorter wheel arrangement (0-4-0). Note how it doesn't overextend beyond the track curve as much.
So, it's not that the other modellers and myself don't want to make n-6-n wheel arrangements (or larger), it's just that currently the minecraft code and system does not support 2x2, 4x4, and higher curve grades.
Now I'm not sure about you, but for a locomotive that freaking amazing I'd be willing to deal with turns like that (though I think wide turns would be a great implementation in the near future)

yes i used to use that mod as well, and i agree, the tanks and jeeps need more work in terms of movement. however the reason why it isn't compatible, is because it uses modloadermp which is incompatible with forge, which all the mods in tekkit use. i loved bombing stuff, and using the guns too.....
Oh, didn't know that, that'll help in the future though. Thanks!Quote from infinus5
0.o haaaa aah hmmm
holly god thats the most beautiful site i ve ever seen ....
now if only we could get an underground mucker ...
think of this as being about the same size as the better looking mining carts
I totally agree with your description of the steam shovel, and I agree, there should be a mucker, but what use would it be with the rail builder?
Aug 10, 2012Posted in: Minecraft ModsQuote from tigerbird1
np, but which mod was it, if i may ask?
"In other news, tigerbird1 had a great idea today! Here's What's Her Face:"
"So tigerbird1, what is your idea for?"
"Spitfire4466's mod, Trains mod, i highly recommend it."
"And what is your idea?"
"Simple, but complicated: my favorite steam locomotive ever, is Daylight. If some one could texture and add it to the mod, it would be awesome, and exhilarating, at least for me."
"Great idea, this has been What's Her Face, back to you, What's His Face!"
It's flan's WW2 mod, I'm very interested in world war two and his mod just does a great job with it. (though the vehicle roll controls need work)
