    Even with that, how to get the items UP, pistons will not work for items, just block form. plus, not very medival.


    Dude, seriously, platforms and pulleys (also anchors and ropes).

    Well the platforms + ability to raise/lower blocks or chests (with blocks inside)


    Look up pulleys on the btw wiki.

    Flower, is it possible to add a way to make building easier? for example: Using cranes to lift blocks to the top of a windmill?


    Like some sort of platform and pulley contraption?

    Is there a limit to how many systems I can have drawing power from the same Windmill/Waterwheel or could I theoretically have everything I need in BTW linked to one solitary power source?


    I have everything hooked up to one central water wheel with axles and gearboxes spanning out through my base.

    It's incompatible with Forge because he wants it to be.


    It's not like FC is going out of his way to make stuff incompatible with forge, he's just simply not using forge.

    Considering that BTW SMP is built with anarchy play in mind, (i.e., stealth, deception, and destruction survival), the idea of announcing your position to other players would be the exact opposite of what you are trying to achieve.


    Something like this could be used as both a deception and an alarm system.

    Like: "the night isn't challenging enough to justify not being able to skip it" would be perfectly reasonable as well, although it's something I'm already working on.


    And now I'm scared...excited...but scared.

    The reasons why you don't make some features optional are merely your subjective opinions...


    Not true. FC stated several times that the only reason some things are optional is because they'll break people's previous worlds.

    Great mod, it really is (and I love the title), but why would you make it incompatible with everything? I want to use multiple mods including this one but now I can't.


    It's not that it's purposely incompatible, it's that no extra effort will be made to make it compatible.

    Also, can I ask for/reccomend something? I would like to see a moulding corner piece, like a slab with a corner cut out to look like an L.


    That already exists, the moulding shapes itself when placed in a corner. Also if you don't like the shape it picked, you can cycle through its options by right clicking it with an empty hand.

    As I recall, Flora posted a short video indicating that the LP is delayed due to scheduling problems with the four players. With any luck they'll get another session going in here at some point.


    On the topic of LPs, does anyone know if Battosay will be continuing his videos?

    I'm not really sure that large biomes even affects this balance to be honest; with forests and taiga being so visible and common, sure it takes a bit of exploring to get everything you need, but the world feels so much better for it.


    Yeah I do like the look and feel of the large biomes. It takes more exploring and I think that's the point. Sometimes you have a bad spawn and in the middle of an ocean is one of those spawns. At that point the other guy should have really just exited and tried again (or make a base on the mainland and try really hard not to die).

    I just decided to share a little adventure I had last night.

    For a while I've been debating on whether to or not to give up my Pre HCB world and just starting a new one. I started several but kept finding myself missing my old world. Last night I decided that the only reasonable thing to do is go back to my old world and adjust it to fit with HCB (sure I could turn that feature off but what's the fun in that?).

    Well apparently the last thing I was doing in this world was exploring a random nether fortress. I load up and I recognize NOTHING. The biggest problem is, I didn't have any obsidian, I HAD to find the way back to my nether portal in order to get home. I spend about 20 minutes running around this fortress, looking for something, anything that I recognized. Finally, out in the distance, I spot a torch placed on the ground! Carefully I make my way down out of the fortress and over to the torch. Once I reach it I spot another and I start to follow the path I left for myself weeks ago. Eventually I spot my nether portal but ... I also spot a ghast. I am not one to shy away from a battle so I go for it. I decide I'm going to kill this particular ghast by knocking his projectiles back at him. After a full minutes of failed attempts I scrap that plan and just pull out my bow. I aim and fire, the arrow soaring through the nether. I run forward keeping my eye on the arrow expecting a direct hit and some loot to collect...suddenly I'm falling. Not watching where I was going I fall through a hole in the platform I was standing on that was suspended over a lake of lava. Instantly I sink to the bottom and there was no land near by to climb out. I was so close, and now, I am dead. I lost everything, my battle axe, my mattock, my full set of plate armor...all gone (not to mention any random resources I had collected on my trip). I spawn back at my original spawn point, a good day's travel from my base. Fortunately I made a path from when I would explore and use the compass to find my way back home (never liked coordinates). I start out on my journey, completely naked (at least tools, weapons, and armor wise). First is the trek through a dense jungle, climbing trees and cliffs hoping to spot the next beacon to assure myself I am on the right path. The sun starts to set, joy comes when I realize I can now spot the torches I laid out by the light they gave off...then fear comes when I realize this is the hour of mobs. I start to sprint, eventually I am out of the jungle and in a forest. Planning my path carefully I easily make it through the trees and past the horrors attempting to kill me (as if once wasn't enough). I see the outer wall of my base, still under construction, my hopes raise and then...I stop sprinting. My hunger has grown too much, I still have about a hundred blocks to go to get to my actually food supply and I am no longer faster than the mobs. I keep moving, taking the most direct path to my house. Dealing with a skeleton shooting at me and a spider that has no problem keeping up with me, I think this may be the end but I still do not give up. Sticking close the trees to slow down the mobs, I can see my house and the beautiful light that shines from it. I am down to one hunger bar and question if I can even make it that far. Then I see my old farming pens, empty since I've moved my animals to an automated breeding system. I hop in the closest one and down a hole that leads to the underground part of my base. Finally I have made it, I make my way to the chests and pull out cooked steak. With half a hunger point left and only 3 hearts I tear into that delicious meat filling myself back up. I throw my fists in the air and yell "I did it!" as I celebrate my victory.

    I then spent the next hour or two making 53 pieces of soulforged steel to reequip myself, all the while cursing at myself for not taking the time earlier to automate part of the process.

    What was suppose to be a night of planning and building turned into a night of adventure!

    I thought this story would be a nice break from the obvious trolling and needless questions that are already answered in the OP.
