Jul 29, 2014ShadowS56 posted a message on Realistic Fluids Overhaul - Finite Water and Stuff [WIP]This looks really cool! Can't wait till it's released!Posted in: WIP Mods
Jul 19, 2014I upgraded my 2 GB with an 8 GB stick, and I still need that 2 GB because of the stuff I have running all the time. I plan to get another 8 GB stick soon to replace it. Plus when I got the new RAM I had a tiny amount of research and decision time. Tiny as in like only 30 minutes. And I didn't have enough money left to get the right amount. After that I did a lot more research on RAM. So yes I do agree that 10 GB is a very poor upgrade.Posted in: Screenshots
My experiences with large mod packs have never ended well. If they are able to run fine on less than 4 GB, then I have no idea what went wrong with mine.
So anywayyyyy... I think we should probably stop talking about this. If we have anything more to say about this let's leave it to PM's. This is an awesome survival building thread, not RAM discussion.
Jul 18, 2014Posted in: ScreenshotsQuote from BKrenzAs for your RAM conundrum, you probably didn't need an upgrade. Vanilla Minecraft shouldn't touch 1 GB of RAM, and with using only about 80 mods or so, you shouldn't go over 2 gigs tops, and that's if you're chunk loading. Allocating more RAM than is necessary is actually a bad thing. I'd start off with 1.5GB dedicated to Minecraft, and then go from there if you're hitting the ceiling. The way the Java garbage collector works is it won't do a full sweep until the RAM is filled up. If you have more and more building up, you'll have a larger pause every once in a while, instead of tiny ones that aren't noticeable frequently. If you're constantly hitting the ceiling you've set, go higher. The main areas of issue you'll run into will likely be with your video card, and after that maybe issues with your processor.
1 GB for vanilla, I can barely play MC with 2 GB. And only 80 mods? Consider the mods he's using. And how much he's going to be doing with this project. I had 2 GB and could barely handle 3 mods with low settings. About the pauses, I upgraded to 10 GB of ram, no pauses, everything ran smooth. At 2, I couldn't go 5 seconds without a 3 second pause or more. Plus the extra ram helps tremendously with other programs in the background. So the ram doesn't have to carry the OS, minecraft with 80+ mods, and anything else in the background. If you just want to simply play minecraft at the minimum, little amounts of ram is fine. But this is gonna be a big project so having everything handled smoothly without any annoying glitches or freezes, it will definitely help a lot.
Just remember that ram isn't only used for gaming, but for everything that makes computers do what they do. Faster and more ram helps handle and sort those things better without squishing it all into a tiny cluttered space. This project isn't easy, and it'll take a lot of time. So why not make it at least comfortable to do?
Jul 17, 2014Awesome! Can't wait to see the beginnings of Regia Anglorum 2Posted in: Screenshots
P.S Shaders are handled on the video card, not the ram.
Jul 13, 2014Haha, more ram definitely has a huge impact on gaming. Also, how many watts is your power supply? Should say on the side of it when you open the case. Just wondering how much room there is for better hardware.Posted in: Screenshots
Jul 13, 2014Sorry I didn't reply to that second question sooner, I have a bad habit of only checking threads when it says there is a new post. Answer to that question: With your motherboard, 4x4 is best. It can only handle 4 GB sticks or less.Posted in: Screenshots

So if I just wanted to max out I should buy 4 of these exact sticks that you linked, right?
And replace your old ram, yup.
Jul 11, 2014At 6 GB of ram, you won't really need much more for what you're doing. Also each stick doesn't have to match, I have 2 completely different sticks of ram in my computer right now, runs just fine. It only has to be the right type to fit the MB. So I'd suggest:Posted in: Screenshots
This ram is really fast and reliable, it'll get you to 10 GB unless you want to replace your current ram.
So that's just my recommendation.That stick should work with your MB. If you have any questions just ask.
EDIT: Also if you do plan on replacing all your ram, keep in mind your MB can only hold up to 16 GB of ram total. So the max GB per stick you can get is 4 GB.
Jul 10, 2014To find your specs, click your start button and go to Control Panel. In there, look for "Device Manager". Look for "Display adapters" for your video card. As for the ram and processor, go to your start button, right click "computer" and select properties. You'll find how many GB of ram you have and your processor.Posted in: Screenshots
50-60 FPS with all those mods, nice!
Jul 10, 2014Welcome back to minecraft Swervish! It's great to see you picking this project back up! And 80 mods?! I must know, what are your computer specs and what FPS do you get with all those mods?Posted in: Screenshots

ok a little status update. at this moment i am working on switching jobs and the like so my time is low and my general stress is a little high. i have not forgotten about this. so don't you worry.
I hope that job switch goes well. Everything will be good soon!
May 16, 2014Yea, the bubble thing I couldn't figure out.. And getting rid of only glass and nothing else would require testfor/testforblock, which doesn't happen fast enough for the arrow not to hit the glass first. If it was constantly making a bubble, it would get rid of other stuff too..Posted in: Redstone Discussion and Mechanisms
Probably missed something obvious. So please tell me and Sefean how that could have been done better if you know how.
Good game, Sefean.
