AFAIK, Auram is in thaumometers and other aura-related artifacts, but it's pretty rare, for sure.

One small thing that i'd love to see in TC5 is an arrow made out of balanced shards, capable of flying in a straight line, but doing less damage than normal ones.
It would be pretty efficient, crafting wise, and really unique when compared to the primal arrows.

From my interpretation, each research note will get its own pool of primal points, and i guess the pool would get bigger depending on the complexity of the research, so i can't see how that is limiting creativity.
May 30, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
There are some interesting ideas in this post although I would like to focus on the part where he talks about golems being created in the wild. I had an idea where there were these "primal golems" that were made of materials in the wild like wood or stone and came to be through a large amount of magic energy. Obviously magic forests would be a good choice for a location for them to spawn. These golems would not be under your control initially but perhaps you weaken them by attacking and then click on them with your golemancer's bell when they are low on health. Then they are yours to command. These golems would be faster and stronger but not quite as smart and you wouldn't be able to put brains in them. They wouldn't be able to wear any of the top hats or bow ties that the other golems can wear. They could however use the shard upgrades the ones made of gold nuggets and the elemental shards. But instead of slotting them in as normal since they don't have a slot to put them in they eat them which could make for a funny research entry. The crystal would then grow out of them so like the earth upgrade makes them stronger so there arms would grow the green crystal around it. The upgrades would actually preform better in these primal golems than they would in the normal golems since the primal golems ones are more attuned to the base energies of the world. These new golems would also need a new model to make them more rugged looking with the wooden ones having twigs with leaves sprouting out of there backs and what not. Also I'm imaging a hunched over look where since they are faster they roll into balls and roll around instead of walking. That could make for some cool animations. This is just a neat suggestion to me but it might be dumb to everyone else. Azanor if you're reading this perhaps consider adding it in maybe.
I really liked your golem ideas, they seem very original, unique and fitting, and i'd love to see them implemented.

Demiurge, i think that the problem here is that you prefer to see TC as a tech mod, and that's the exact thing that Azanor want to avoid, and what's most prevalent on Thaumcraft 4. All of these changes made for "no real gain" are going to make it all more enjoyable, especially because there will be trade-offs.
I, personally, am really hyped for the next release, because it will add a lot of new stuff for us to mess with, and for me that's what's fun with both Thaumcraft and Minecraft.

Jul 18, 2013WayofTime posted a message on [1.10.2/1.9.4] Blood Magic V2.1.0-65 - Updated Sept. 29Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Hello, everyone! This is WayofTime, and I am currently updating this post for the 1.9 version of the mod. Because of this, I would like to request a bit of patience: many, many things have changed between 1.7.10 and 1.9 in the mod, so I need to make sure everything is well documented. The in-game documentation... will take a while, and is being planned, however due to how I want them to be story-driven they are going to take a backburner compared to the content in the mod.
Because of this, I will strive to document ALL SYSTEMS in the mod here. This will be a big post. There will probably be so much in it that you will need to look at posts below this in order to get the entire content. You have been warned!
Download: Curse Forge Download of Awesomeness
PLEASE NOTE!!! The Blood Magic in-game guide requires Guide-API to be installed, which can be found here: http://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/guide-api/files Is the book complete? Haha, no. But it is being worked on. If you ever have questions, look at my developer commentaries found on my Youtube channel (WayofFlowingTime), or ask around here or on the official FTB wiki (http://ftb.gamepedia.com/Blood_Magic).
If you want to get the book, look up the "Sanguine Scientiem" in-game - the crafting process should be obvious and easy. If you do not find this item, it is because you need to download Guide-API.
A quick reference to point you in the right direction.
This section talks about how to start the mod. The main details of each of the blocks and items, along with some of the recipes, can be found in their respective sections. Think of this section as a quick and dirty way to start the mod, but it won't give you the nitty gritty details of the inner workings.
In previous versions of the mod, you would start by directly crafting a Blood Altar and a sacrificial knife, then go straight into creating a blood orb. This is no longer the case. To start the mod, you will need to craft a rudimentary snare, and throw it at a monster. When you throw the snare, it has a chance to inflict a debuff on the monster, so throw snares until you see white particle effects.
When this occurs, kill the monster. It will drop a piece of "Demonic Will" - you will need about two of these, with one of them having a "Will Quality" (seen on the tooltip of the item) of at least 1.
At this point you are able to craft a Blood Altar using one of the Demonic Will - it is recommended you use the one with the lowest Will quality. You can also craft your Sacrificial Dagger, for use in self-sacrificing. More details about the blood altar and sacrifices can be found in the "Blood Altar" section.
You will need to create a Hellfire Forge out of some stone, iron, and gold. This block will be used for almost all recipes that involve this "Demonic Will." Demonic Will, or shortened simply as "Will," is used as an energy source. As such, you will need a way to use it, store it, and get more of it, and this block will do just that. Once again, see the relevant sections for finer details.
Craft two petty tartaric gems (use JEI for the recipe) by placing the Demonic Will you still have in the right-most slot. It will use up one Will Quality from the Will. Then, take one of these petty tartaric gems and use it to craft a "Sentient Sword." When you kill things with this sword, you will get more Demonic Will when you kill things. What is more, when you pick up a piece of Demonic Will from the ground while you have a tartaric gem in your inventory, the Will will go into that gem, deleting the Demonic Will item. Naturally, there is a maximum capacity of the tartaric gems, which for the petty version is 64.
One quick fact, which is explained further later on: the more Will you have in your tartaric gems inside of your inventory, the stronger your Sentient Sword is as well as the more Will is dropped by entities. This will help you to gather enough Will in order to craft some of the more interesting items in the game!
So now that you know how to use the Blood Altar (by looking at its section briefly - no, seriously, look at it), you will want to be able to get some more information about the Blood Altar. To do this, you will want to craft the Divination Sigil. If you look using JEI, you can see that to craft this sigil you need a Blank Slate and a piece of redstone dust using an "Alchemy Array." The Blank Slate can be crafted using a piece of smooth stone in a blood altar with 1000LP worth (5 hearts using the sacrificial dagger). 1 heart in the blood altar = 200LP without upgrades. An Alchemy Array can be created by crafting some "Arcane Ash" using the Hellfire Forge and right clicking on the ground with the ash. This will create a circle on the ground. If you then right click on this circle with first the redstone dust and then the blank slate, the Alchemy Array will create a Divination Sigil. This is how Alchemy Array crafting works.
Right clicking on the altar with the divination sigil will then tell you how much LP you have in the altar, and if you have WAILA installed it will tell you the LP in the WAILA box while you hold the sigil.
You will then want to craft a Weak Blood Orb using a diamond and 2000LP in the altar. This can store LP for you and your items that use LP. For more information on this, see the section "Soul Network."
So with this basic knowledge, you will want to upgrade your blood altar each tier, and craft a new blood orb whenever you can. Likewise, you will want to continually get better and better Tartaric gems to get more demonic will. If you want to know more information, make sure to look at the sections that are relevant. Either that, or look at an updated spotlight.
The Blood Altar
Construction and basic mechanics
(Blood Altar Recipe)
(Angled T1 picture)
The Blood Altar is the main center-piece of the mod, used to craft major components as well as Blood Orbs used in the mod. By right clicking on the block with an item in-hand you are able to place the item into its inventory, which can be removed by right clicking with an empty hand. Because it is an inventory, hoppers and other means can interact with it.
As the name implies, the Blood Altar uses blood to transmute one item into another. By using a Sacrificial Dagger on yourself, you are able to put some of your blood and life essence into the altar's basin, sacrificing some of your health. One heart (2 hp) equals 200 Life Points, or LP, by default.
The altar has a base capacity of 10,000LP, and it has two internal fluid buffers with a capacity of 10% that of the main tank - LP that is pumped into the altar will go from the input buffer into the main tank, and then LP from the main tank will slowly transfer into the output tank, allowing it to be pumped out of the altar.
The operation of the altar is simple enough. Fill up the altar with blood using the available methods - at this stage of the mod, you are only able to use the Sacrificial Dagger to fill the altar with your own blood, but more methods will become available when you advance in the mod. Once you have enough LP in the altar, right click the altar to put the item you want to craft into it. You will start to see red particles emanating from the item, indicating that it is currently being transmuted into a new item. If gray particles start to smoke off of the item, it means that the altar is out of LP and the item is actually loosing progress - when this happens, you either have to add more LP to the altar to continue crafting, or simply loose all the progress on the item. Once the item stops emitting red particles, the crafting process is completed and you have a new item! Congrats!
You can also place a bound Blood Orb into the altar to fill up your Soul Network, up to the orb's maximum. More info about this can be found in the Soul Network section.
As you can see, the Blood Altar starts off relatively weak, simply a tier 1 (T1) altar with minimal capabilities. You can craft a few things with it, however you won't be able to do anything too fancy.
Tiers of Altars
Ethereal storage, not for the faint of heart!
All that you need to know about harvesting Demon's Will
The Rudimentary Snare is how you initially get into the mod. It is a simple device that can be thrown at a hostile mob to attempt to ensnare some unpleasant things attached to it. If thrown at a mob, there will be a chance (about 25%) for the mob to be inflicted with a debuff called "Soul Snare," and will start to emit white swirling particles - when these particles appear, you can then kill the mob to get an item called "Demonic Will." This item will have a "Will Quality" between 0 and 5, so when starting off make sure to get at least two, one of them with a quality of more than 1.
After you use it this first time, you probably aren't going to use it much afterwards. More uses for this will probably happen in the future, but for now it is simply a way to get started in the mod.
In the lore of Blood Magic, there is some form of demonic entity/energy that animates hostile monsters, raising skeletons from the grave to then attack the living. Because these skeletons don't actually have a soul to power their sentience, the demonic entity instead imprints its will to cause these creatures to move. It is this imprint of Demonic Will that is removed from a monster when slain by a blood mage that gives rise to some of the more esoteric abilities of the mod.
Demonic Will powers a lot of the items and abilities of the mod. Instead of just gathering LP from a Blood Altar to power your sigils, a blood mage now needs to go hunting monsters to gather Will. The main usage of Will is in crafting things, but there are a few offensive uses for this material.
The Hellfire Forge is one of the first machines that you will want to create in the mod. It is responsible for crafting almost everything involving Demonic Will, and thus you will be spending a lot of time with this thing. The Forge uses Will to craft stronger Tartaric Gems, sentient equipment, and even the stuff used for routing items.
The forge has four input slots on the left-hand side, a slot on the right for either a Demonic Will or a Tartaric Gem, an output slot at the center of the circle, and a progress bar to... indicate the progress of the crafting (all recipes take 5 seconds). When you place the four items in the forge in any order (because it is a shapeless recipe) and put in whatever you are using to store your Will, the forge will start to use the Will to craft the resultant item.
Keep in mind, though, that each and every recipe has two semi-hidden values: a minimum amount of Will required to be able to craft the item, and a value to indicate how much Will is consumed in this recipe. When you look up a recipe using JEI (Just Enough Items) and hover over the arrow in the recipe, it will give you a Minimum and a Drained value. For a recipe to even be craftable, you need a Tartaric Gem with at least the Minimum Will value. When the crafting is complete, though, the Forge will drain the Drained value. This is so that there are recipes that are gated behind having a lot of Will, but only use a little of it. And yes, the Minimum amount of Will will always be greater than or equal to the Drained value.
The Hellfire Forge will also fill up its contained Tartaric Gem if it is in a chunk that contains Demon Aura (explained later). It will fill up the gem in its slot with one Will per tick, and only if the gem is able to hold onto that Will. This can be helpful if you have a lot of Forges crafting large recipes, since there is no real way to replace the gem itself, or even fill it.
Tartaric Gems (translated: gems from the demon realm, Tartarus) are used to store large amounts of Will. There are currently five different levels of tartaric gems: Petty, Lesser, Common, Greater, and Grand, which store subsequently more will. When you have a tartaric gem in your inventory and pick up a piece of Demonic Will, the Will will be absorbed and stored into the gem. If you have gems in your inventory and all of your gems are full, the Will item will instead just be voided to avoid clogging up your inventory.
What is more, you are able to right click in the air with the gem to transfer up to 10% of the max capacity of the gem into other gems in your inventory. So if you have a petty tartaric gem and you just created a lesser gem, you can just right click with the petty gem to fill up your new lesser gem.
You will want to have one of these on you whenever you use Sentient equipment, because all Sentient items get stronger the more Will you have in your inventory. The various benefits of each of these will be discussed in their respective sections.
The Sentient Sword is a marvelous weapon that gets more powerful the more Demonic Will you have in your tartaric gems. When initially crafted, you will see that it does not have much damage at all - however, if you right click with the sword or attack something with it, it will check your inventory for how much Will you have and then increase its damage based on it. If you gain more Will while you have this weapon, your sword will automatically power itself up when you attack things.
Probably the major benefit of this weapon is that when you kill things with it the attacked mob (if a hostile mob) will drop more Demonic Will without the need of using Rudimentary Snares. The amount dropped is proportional to the max health of the mob. The Will dropped is also increased dramatically when the power of the sword increases, so if you have more Will in your contained tartaric gems the mobs that you kill will drop more Will.
Also, pro tip: Looting enchantments affect how much Will is dropped. Oh, and the sword is enchantable!
You can only repair the Sentient Sword using an anvil plus another Sentient Sword.
Depending on how which Demon Will you have the most of when you right click the sword, the sword will take on different abilities.
The Corrosive sword inflicts the targed with Wither, dealing a constant DoT that becomes longer and more powerful the more Corrosive Will you have.
The Destructive sword is more damaging, but slower. This is more in-line with an axe than anything, but still provides the useful ability of the sword's slash.
The Vengeful sword has a faster attack speed and provides a speed buff when held, however it does a bit less damage. Hold it to charge into battle like a demon!
The Steadfast sword has reduced damage, however when you kill a mob with it you will receive temporary absorption hearts proportional to the max health of the mob killed. Helpful for keeping yourself alive, but not so much for killing things as efficiently.
The Sentient Armour is not craftable in the traditional sense. Instead, you need to craft a Sentient Armour Gem and right click with it while you have at least 30 Will. This will replace your armour with Sentient Armour (or just equip sentient armour when you have no armour on). If you right click the gem again, it will remove the sentient armour and equip your old armour again.
This armour becomes more powerful the more Will you have, and will drain Will from your contained gems when you are attacked. If, however, you run out of Will your armour will revert back to its original form.
There are four unique styles of the Sentient Armour, depending on which type of Demon Will you have the most of in your inventory at the time of activation, and as you can probably tell they all have different abilities.
Corrosive makes you immune to poison and wither, making it a good armour for when you are fighting witches or cave spiders.
Destructive adds to your attack power while reducing your attack speed, which is helpful for those more powerful monsters.
Vengeful increases your movement speed while still offering good protection.
Steadfast increases your defence, and imparts a large amount of knockback resistance. This is the tanky armour, but doesn't provide anything like health or movement speed buffs.
Demon Will Aura
Demonic Will is the ethereal manifestation of the will of demons, which normally is found in "nature" through reanimated or controlled monsters. So far in the mod, we have harnessed this power to gain more strength, injecting it into our tools to make us more powerful. However with any other type of power source, we can only do so much with it when it is confined to a particular form (in this case, our tartaric gems). Thus, if we were to find a way to release this Will into the atmosphere, we may be able to find more advanced uses.
This is what is called "Demon Will Aura," or Demon Aura. It is a measure of how much Demonic Will is released into the air in a given region. Think of it like Thaumcraft's aura, in the sense that it is a chunk-based aura that holds an energy that can be used for other things. However, Demon Aura is not able to spread from its own chunk without outside influences - once released, although this aura has a mind of its own (it's called "Will" for a reason), it tends to stay in the same region, seeking out things that it can attach to. If left alone, it will eventually try to seek out a host to inhabit again: but because this is a relatively new system, a lot of the stuff planned has yet to be implemented.
The Demon Crucible is a block that is required to convert the Will contained inside of tartaric gems into Demon Aura. By right clicking the Crucible and placing a tartaric gem inside it, the Will in the gem will slowly be drained and released into the air.
By default, the crucible call only inject up to 100 Will of a given type into the aura at a rate of 1 Will per tick. Later on, you will be able to place upgrades into the crucible to increase the rate as well as the max amount of Will in the Aura. Alone, this block won't be able to do much, but combined with other blocks it can be very useful.
The demon Crystals can also be placed inside of the Crucible to melt down into Demon Will, and they will pump the Aura up with its particular type.
With Will flowing around in the local Demon Aura, it becomes advantageous to focus the Will into a more concentrated form. The Will found inside of the Tartaric gems and the Demonic Will items is the ethereal manifestation of the Will, however the Crystallizer allows you to grab this essence and convert the ethereal to a physical form.
The Crystallizer acts as a point for the Demon Aura to latch onto, allowing the Will to start to crystallize on top of it. When enough Will congregates onto the Crystallizer, a Crystal Cluster of pure Demonic Will will form on top of it.
Because the Will is put into the air and then grabbed from the atmosphere, you will sometimes notice you get different colours of crystal clusters. There is a 10% chance that when a cluster is grown, it will be one of these unique types. Try to catch them all!
The crystallizer requires 100 default Demonic Will in order to form one cluster. Also quite a bit of time, so you may want to have more than one crystallizer in the chunk at once.
Demon Will Crystal Cluster
Crystal Clusters are a way to grow crystallized Demonic Will from the Demon Aura. When in an area with a high enough concentration of Demon Aura (any amount, currently), the crystal will act as a place for Will to latch on to, sprouting more crystals off of the main shard.
There are two main ways to harvest the crystals from the cluster. Either you can mine the cluster, destroying it but dropping the shards, or you can right click on the cluster when you have more than 1024 Demon Will in your contained tartaric gem (a common gem has a capacity of 1024, but a greater gem has a capacity of 4096). This will drop a single crystal, and will leave the cluster intact. And yes, a cluster that only has one crystal on it won't be destroyed if you right click it.
The crystal clusters come in all five of the different types of will.
You need to build more of these! *Ahem*
The Demon Pylon is used to draw Demon Aura towards it. What it does is it looks at how much Will is in its own chunk and attempts to equalize it with the other chunks by syphoning from the neighbouring chunk in each cardinal direction. By equalize, I mean that it will try to draw the Will from its neighbour until both chunks have an equal amount of Will. If the chunk beside it has 100 Will and its chunk has 0, both chunks will have 50 Will each by the end of it. Of course this is barring other Pylons messing with the Will and other draining effects.
Pylons are good to transmit Will throughout your base, so you will only need one area of Crucibles for your Demon Aura generation. For larger distances, it is probably not very good since you will need multiple chunks loaded.
Different Types of Will
There are five types of Demon Will, which includes four unique types of Will: there is the normal Will, which is the "Default" Then there is: Corrosive, Destructive, Vengeful, and Steadfast.
"Corrosive" (green) deals with breaking stuff down. So in combat, this would be the type that you use to apply DoTs like poison and wither.
"Vengeful" (red) deals with seeking things out for various purposes. This could be things such as increasing your speed or hastening a quarry ritual.
"Destructive" (yellow) is used to cause large amounts of damage - if you use this Will, it will cause a bad time for other things... Sans any unexpected circumstances.
"Steadfast" (purple) is used to mitigate destruction and damage. Defence, protection, truth and justice... well, maybe not those last two.
The use for the different types of Will is mainly for changing the aspects of the Sentient equipment. Eventually, the different Will types will be used to change the effects of all of the various rituals.
(Show a picture of all routing nodes)
The Item Routing system in Blood Magic is used to, well, route items.
Ritual of the Full Spring
Perhaps the simplest of rituals, this ritual grabs the moisture in the air and condenses it, forming a source block of water on top of the MRS. It costs 500LP to activate and 25LP per block created, but respawns the water every tick.
Serenade of the Nether
Slightly more sinister of a ritual than its cousin, the Serenade of the Nether draws lava from across dimensions and generates a source block of lava on top of the MRS. Having an activation cost of 10,000LP and a refresh cost of 500LP per lava block, this ritual can run your network dry if you use it too quickly.
Ritual of the Green Grove
A ritual that is helpful for those stubborn plants that you need to grow quickly, the Green Grove force-grows plants by sending the plants in its range (3x3x1 horizontal pane two blocks above the MRS) a growth tick once a second. Each of these ticks cost 5LP per plant, and the ritual costs 5,000LP to activate, so it can help to give you a steady supply of plants and crops.
(Yes, it works on sugarcane - anything that is IPlantable or IGrowable)
Ritual of the High Jump
This ritual looks for any living entity that is above the MRS and then shoots them into the air. If a person is pressing shift, the person will be able to land safely without being sent flying. This ritual costs 5,000LP to activate and 5LP per operation.
Well of Suffering
One of the old stand-bys for anyone who loves self-sacrifice, this ritual checks for a blood altar within a 11x11x21 area centered on the MRS. If there is an altar in its area, it will then attack mobs in a 10 block radius to fill up the blood altar.
When a mob is attacked, it is dealt 1HP of void damage and 10LP is placed into the blood altar (this respects sacrifice runes). Since this happens to every mob inside of its area at a period of 25 ticks, this is basically your go-to for automated sacrifice!
It costs 40,000LP to activate and uses 2LP per operation per mob.
Ritual of the Feathered Knife
The Ritual of the Feathered Knife is quite simple in its execution. Similar to the WoS, this ritual searches an 11x11x21 area for a Blood Altar. It then checks a 31x31x41 area for a player (so a 15 block radius horizontally, 20 radius vertically) and damages them for 1HP. For each HP taken, the ritual puts in 100LP into the altar, respecting any self-sacrifice runes used. This ritual will not put the user of the ritual under 3 hearts, however, but will thus leave you a bit vulnerable when using it.
This ritual takes 25,000LP to activate and costs 20LP per operation. It also has a frequency of operation of once per second.
Ritual of Regeneration
Reap of the Harvest Moon
Ritual of Magnetism
Ritual of the Crusher
Ritual of the Satiated Stomach
Ritual of Interdiction
Ritual of Containment
Ritual of Speed
Dome of Suppression
Aura of Expulsion
Call of the Zephyr
Sound of the Cleansing Soul
This ritual is a temporary ritual that removes all upgrades from the living armour of a person that walks on top of the MRS. These upgrades are then given to the player in the form of Living Upgrade Tomes. Because of this, it allows the player to compile upgrades to perfect their living armour for an LP cost.
Ritual of Living Evolution
Note: this is a temporary ritual that WILL change later on.
When you first create Living Armour, it has a maximum upgrade limit of 100 points. By activating this ritual and stepping into it while you have a set of Living Armour on, you can upgrade your armour so that it has a cap of 300 points. This ritual will change, because it can be considered pretty imbalanced.
Ritual of the Shepherd
Gathering of the Forsaken Souls
Le Vulcanos Frigius
This makes cobblestone in the 5 blocks of empty space on top of the MRS. Not a very -useful- ritual, but later on it will be upgradeable.
Laying of the Filler
This ritual searches for an inventory on top of the MRS for any placeable blocks. When it finds some, it will then place the blocks in the 5x5x1 area on the same level of the MRS. This is a good ritual for automatically placing saplings or other things that need automation.
It costs 5kLP to activate and 50LP per operation (needs adjustment)
Crash of the Timberman
The Crash of the Timberman searches a 10 block horizontal radius and 30 blocks above the MRS for any trees and leaves. The ritual will then cut down the leaves and logs of the tree and put the drops into a chest that is above the MRS.
This ritual takes 500LP to activate and uses 10LP per operation.
Hymn of Siphoning
The Assembly of the High Altar
The Gate of the Fold
The Gate of the Fold is one of the more complicated rituals. When activated, it will create a portal that, when walked through, will teleport the user to a portal that has the same key. If multiple portals have the same key, it should teleport the player to a portal randomly.
The key of the ritual is defined by who activated it and which blocks are placed in its defined area - this area can be seen by the wooden planks in the above picture. In other words, if you have different blocks surrounding the portal, your portals will be linked differently.
The key for the portal is set when the ritual is activated or when the ritual is turned back on using redstone. If you were to deactivate the portal with redstone, change the blocks, and then reactivate the portal, the portal will have a different key. This will allow you to build more complicated portal networks.
Since the key is set when the ritual is activated, you can activate the portal and then rearrange/remove the blocks around it and it will still link to the same destination. This allows for decorating the portal if you plan to never deactivate it.
It costs 50,000LP to activate and costs a bit of LP to go through. Items and animals and other entities can go through the portal, and it works cross-dimensionally (costs more if you teleport cross-dimensionally, and less if they are items).

I do hope Azanor would consider some end-of-life bugfixes for TC4 at some point, to leave it in a good place especially since it's still so popular (well, an even better place, it's not at all bad as bugs go really ).

With the new model format aside, how is 1.8 making mods worse? You mentioned making sacrifices when updating, and again I'd like to reference the 1.2.5 to 1.3 update. 1.2.5's singleplayer mods had much more flexibility then what 1.3 had. Mods had to make sacrifices back then too. It really does suck, but there's not really much that can be done.
Nov 8, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
I think the whole flux problem could be fixed (at least partially) by just making the vitum aura have a high threshold before it starts a flux storm, that is higher than the amount needed to create vitium shards.
This way you could carefully balance the levels of vitium in the aura just below the taint-spawning levels to grow vitium shards.
On the other hand crossing this unseen threshold (maybe a high-tier eldrich research could display it on the thaumometer?) would cause a taint storm that would spawn taint tendrils which would consume the large amount of vitium in the aura to rapidly spread across the area, lowering the vitium to somewhere below the threshold (at least until the tendrils start growing into taint spores, but that should take some time).
This way players have an incentive to actually produce flux, but carefully else they risk a taint outbreak which spreads rapidly, but consumes enough vitium to stop further storms from occurring.

So, I've seen a few complaints about wands automatically charging from the aura, and I just had an idea. How about instead of the wands charging automatically, we would need to draw in vis from our wands manually. This could be done by right clicking with a while with no foci attached. In the current system wand capacity is meaningless except for crafting. This would also give players a bit more control over the aura as well. The recharge pedestal could also be made actually useful in this system if it'll automatically recharge wands when a player is near it. Let's be honest, the recharge pedestal is pretty useless how it is currently. Vis stones and amulets of vis would still draw vis directly from the air without the need for the player to do so themselves, so if anyone prefers automatic wand recharging then these amulets would allow them to still have that ability.
