    Unless you've somehow stumbled upon some high-quality headphones, you're missing out on a lot of information in your music, movies and even games.

    If you want to know more, browse the Head-Fi forums, chances are any question you have has already been asked and answered over there (use the search function).

    @Slartibartfast Where did you get the image in your signature? Did you make it yourself? It's alot better than the regular BTW mod banner...

    I did make the sig, but it's based on a really nice illustration someone posted quite a few pages back and I took the liberty to take a crop and make the sig out of it. Please note that I'm not trying to plagiarize it, but it wasn't posted with a copyright so I assumed it's public domain. I'll try to find it again to give credit to its original author. If both its author and FlowerChild are OK with it, feel free to use it.

    Dear Flowerchild,
    I believe many of us are wondering why you don't want this mod in the yogbox. Like you let the yogscast review/ show this mod but yet, you are giveing the people who watch the yogscast a choice between Yogbox, or Better Than Wolves which is a choice I am sure many people don't want to make. I'm sure you are letting many people down by not letting the yogscast use your brilliant mod for the yogbox so I suggest you rethink your decision. but that's just me and many other people but in the end the choice is up to you.

    Note: I haven't gotten this mod but I REALLY want to but I have the yogbox and I can't choose between the 2

    If you had followed this thread since the beginning you would already know that there are plenty of reasons as to why it's best for this mod not to be included in a compilation. Distribution rights, due credit and raging morons (technical issues not directly caused by this mod being redirected here) aside, FlowerChild is doing his best to evolve Minecraft into a deeper game, which is something many mod authors simply overlook in their designs, thus breaking the original feel, and with the fact that he would ultimately have no say as to which mods are being included in a given pack, it's very likely that the result of such a combination would break the purpose of Better Than Wolves to certain extent. Also, there's no need to pick, you could spend a few hours figuring out how to merge BTW with YogBox, because it's obviously possible (certain yogscast episode being the proof of it).

    Guys, just report it and move on. Generating more spam to combat spam is self-defeating.

    Please don't get caught up in the spam. From my point of view, you will have to repeat yourself until there is a chance to update the mod for 1.7x compatibility, so you might as well step out a bit and have some leisure time meanwhile. I'd like to see this thread locked and a FAQ added to the OP so people can stop wasting your time (ours, as I keep following this thread in hope that you will give us new teasers) until the time for testing and constructive discussion comes around again. I'm sorry I cannot volunteer myself to write said FAQ right now.

    With Notch taking notice of the value of this, interesting times are sure to come. Great job once again!

    The title, the ideas and mods, and your rebuttal of every troll, Flowerchild(and that guy who's username is Slartibartfast, he is full of win as well).

    Great!, I just love cashing in on someone else's success :biggrin.gif:
    Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to give something to the community as well, I just need a little free time.

    Hmmm...let me take a look at the code for lighting. I don't think it's possible to do what you're talking about without a modification to the way the lighting system works, because if I understand what I've seen so far correctly, light naturally attentuates from the source point, and there's nothing an individual block can do about that.

    If it's an easy job, I'll definitely consider it. But if I have to revamp the whole lighting system, it's unlikely :wink.gif:

    Anyways, good idea man. Sorry for the misunderstanding!

    Thanks for going through the trouble, and if correct, those are very good reasons not to "fix something that isn't broken". This mod is quickly shaping up to earn the nickname of Minecraft++.

    The only advantage it offers over a regular torch is an aesthetic one.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but I think you're assuming too much. I don't see how a 70.5% increase in the illuminated area is merely an aesthetic advantage. Let's suppose one is to light up a 144x144 area to prevent mobs from spawning at the surface of a mob farm at night, that's 20,736 blocks, or ~244 regular torches, which translates roughly into a full stack of coal. Now compare that to the ~143 "nethertorches" that are needed, which require ~18 coal and ~18 netherrack. That represents a full 60% savings in materials, which means 60% less time spent looking for and breaking coal veins for these purposes, which is a rather tedious task in my opinion.

    Bad wording on my part. I don't think it's strictly aesthetic, since its ramifications extend beyond merely aesthetic means, but fairly enough, it wouldn't offer anything new.
