Inventory tweaks allows you to sort your inventories. There are all kinds of mods with sorting systems where you can put everything into one chest, and (after a considerable effort of setting it up) the system will place each item into the correct chest.
However, in my opinion, the best solution of all is Applied Energistics (AE2 for 1.7). It stores everything you have as energy in a "computer", that's completely searchable and sortable. It is a bit complex to get the system up and running, but once it is, it is basically self maintained. You never again have to remember where that particular chest is, or if you put coal into "magic items" or "building materials". It's basically like having one giant, searchable chest for everything. It's also integrated with NEI, so you can search for what you want to craft, shift click on the ?, and if you have all the mats in your system (not in your own inventory), you can one-click craft it right there.
It also has several other features, like auto-crafting, but IMO, the inventory management aspect is the best thing about it.

2Tallenn posted a message on Why does 9minecraft.com post my stuff?In a lot of cases, there's probably not anything you can do. Some of these sites are hosted in countries that do not recognize and/or enforce copyright laws of other countries.Posted in: Discussion
The best defense against these kinds of sites is education. It's in everyone's best interest to always use official download links for mods, packs, maps, texture packs, whatever. The fact is, your chances of getting a malware virus by downloading from one of these places is very high, not to mention that the actual author isn't getting the ad revenue or even the credit, in many cases. Everyone needs to know: never, ever download from anywhere except the author's own web site, Minecraftforum.net or Curse. I too have gotten Malware this way -completely new to minecraft and no idea what those sites were. That's why I say it's so important to make sure everyone knows to avoid them.
Maybe we could get Microsoft to start pursuing these scammers on domain spoofing grounds. They have the money and influence to actually get some traction with the domain name registering companies. If we could stop them from basically stealing domains that are designed to look like official minecraft sites (by having minecraft in the name), that might actually make a dent in them.
1Tallenn posted a message on Slimes wont spawn?I'm sure you probably already know, but I didn't see it mentioned, so I thought I'd throw it out, just in case: You need to be a certain distance away. Mobs wont' spawn too close to a player (24 blocks? 28? not sure, something like that), and they also won't spawn too far away (>128? again, not sure), so you need to be within that range to make them spawn.Posted in: Survival Mode

1. cool, thanks.
5. nice to know, thanks again.
6. you're kidding me? nice laugh though.
additionally, i think you'll find anyone on these forums has the same right to make complaints, if someone leaves as a result instead of addressing them, that's just lazy and not something i condone or consider a loss to the community.
He did address them, repeatedly. He just didn't give you the answer you wanted. I guess he got tired of being berated by ingrates that weren't satisfied with the free work he did for them. I can only imagine how many of the people who make mods must feel. They spent many of their own hours developing these things, generally for free, just because they enjoy minecraft and enjoy the challenge of modding it, and then have to deal with grief on the forums from people who address them as if they were a paying customer that didn't get what they thought they paid for. I wish Algo had been better able to ignore the (completely irrelevant) complainers and continue working on AE2, which many of us find to be excellent, just the way it is, but I understand why he quit, especially considering how the complaints about it not being like AE1 keep on coming in.
It really is pretty simple here: This is not AE1, it's AE2. It's not going to change to be like AE1, ever. Get over it. If you want to use AE1, there absolutely is a way to do so: play MC version 1.6.4, and you're golden. It's time to quit whining about AE2 not being like AE1. It is what it is, and it's not going to change. Deal with it. As I mentioned, a lot of us like it this way.
1Tallenn posted a message on Petition For Safe Servers!It's been pretty well covered, but I'll add my .02Posted in: Discussion
If you want to protect your own kids from inappropriate language, there are servers out there that enforce that. Join one of those, or create your own server, or just have your kids play on your own LAN (or just SP). There are plenty of choices to "protect" your children from profanity. If you want to make it so no one's children are able to hear language that YOU deem inappropriate for them, tough. That's not your call to make. I'LL determine what's appropriate for my family, and I'll thank you to stay out of it.

Please don't. We don't need yet another thread trying where a guy tries to tell the world that Alpha and Beta was the best - and it's not because of nostalgia.
Just because you prefer those version doesn't mean that everybody do. Stop thinking that your opinion should define the world. People who liked those version could do it our of nostalgia. Because they felt it was more survival back then. Sure it was; What else was there to do? If the game haven't moved on from that time, it's unlikely it would've been worth 2 billions USD this day today.

"That is so cool" I thought. "I could never do that."
Now, two years later, I have built an epic giant chicken which spawns mobs and poops them (flaming) out of its butt.
It is to scale, 1 pixel = 3x3x3 blocks
(I built it to appease the mighty Edwin, god of chickens, who was offended due to my automated chicken killing farms.)
This is a chicken:
This is my chicken:
It is dire and sinister:
It spawns mobs with a piston/tripwire arrangement:
At night, it is magnificent:
It poops out a flaming mob every few seconds:
1Chesterfloood posted a message on How do you feel about cracked users (NEW POLL!)I used to use a cracked copy. The experience I had with it (i.e. my positive, enjoyable minecrafting experience) led to me eventually buying the game.Posted in: Discussion
Illegal copies aren't all bad - they funnel people towards legitimate copies.

Yeah, it kinda is. Saying that is like saying - "If you're too poor to afford a car, than why not take it out for a 'test drive' until you have the money to pay for it? 'Test driving' it until you can work up the money for it really isn't that bad."
This implies piracy is stealing, which its not. Piracy is making a copy, not theft.
Piracy is not stealing. No physical copy of a disk was stolen, it was merely a non physical copy of the game. There is no theft. I swear most of the kids replaying to this subject dont even know what piracy is.
>That, my friend, is why there is a such thing as REVIEWS. Ever heard of IGN? Metacritic? Gamespot? No? Well go watch their reviews.
Most of those so called review sites kill off good games for little to no reason, and get paid off to write good reviews for bad games with big budgets. No thanks.
>a "can I run it" system that will tell you if you can run it at an acceptable framerate.
I have tired these sites in the past, some say I can run games I clearly can not run, while others say I cant run certain games when I can. Its a plot luck, and they are never 100% sure so they are not to be trusted. Only true way to test it is to run the game on your pc.
>to steal to see how a game
Again piracy is not theft, no property is being taken away. Piracy is making copies of an object which has no physical makeup. You can not argue my point if you are going to misrepresent the word piracy under false pretenses.
>it never gave me the feeling that paying for games did. It made me feel like I didn't truly earn the game.
Your "feelings" are irrelevant , as there is no difference between a proper pirated copy and a paid for one.
>Piracy isn't something that a true gamer does.
There is no such thing as a "true gamer" a gamer is someone who plays video games, if they are free to play, handheld, console, pc, paid, rented borrowed or free. Saying "true gamer" is just trying to make yourself seem like a special, beautiful, and unique snowflake. While in reality you're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. Lastly anyone can pick up a game and call themselves a true gamer, it doesn't mean jack crap nor is there any guide lines to being one that means anything. Its just a thrown together word to try to make inner groups of people who play video games which has no meaning other then trying to feel special.
2Conker posted a message on How do you feel about cracked users (NEW POLL!)Posted in: DiscussionQuote from Shadowfury333If you cant pay 30 bucks for a game, then you shouldn't be allowed to play it.
A simple way to figure out whether you like it or not:
Watch a few videos?
You don't need to crack to 'test' if you like it or not.
Or what, are you gonna do that with all games?
That's my opinion.
>"If you cant pay 30 bucks for a game, then you shouldn't be allowed to play it."
Why not? If you are dirt poor, and are going to be too poor to spend extra money on a pc game, then pirating it until you have money to spend is really not that bad. Now if you come across money and wish to support the dev by buying the game when you have cash, then theres nothing bad about it. One more thing to keep in mind, some areas of this world dont have certain acess to parts of the web to legitly buy the game, some due to blocks on certain sites, or a lack of ways to pay online for items. Pirating is the only way those areas are ever going to experience those games, and it does help as word of mouth and posts online spread it like advertising for others to buy the game.
One could even argue a kid in China who's net is blocked from notch's site can pirate minecraft, and make a youtube video of them playing the game, then others could see this game and buy it themselves from watching that video. Which in turns helps sales of the game. There is good things in pirating games.
>"A simple way to figure out whether you like it or not:Watch a few videos?"
That really doesnt help a lot of people due to certain games, some games you need to try out and text for yourself to see if you like it, things like clunky controls and delays in key pressing can not be seen or experienced in a video. I say you need to play a game for a short while before seeing if its for you or not.
>"You don't need to crack to 'test' if you like it or not."
I again disagree, some games do not have demos for you to try out yourself, so playing a pirated copy is a legit way to see if you would work on your pc, how the fps is, to see if there are any game breaking bugs etc. Yes there are demos but some demos either dont have the full game so your pc can handle the demo but when the real game comes along your pc cant handle it, theres no way in testing that. Some demos like the MC one are timed, which is a not really a good way to see if you can like the game or not, due to the time limit you never get too far in the mid game to even figure out if theres more than just mining blocks. I think a temp map with a un-timed demo would be better for this, that way players can experience a bit of everything of the game in the demo, but then again pirating the game allows you all the time you need to see if the game is for you.
>Or what, are you gonna do that with all games?
I am a pirate, I pirate games to test if I like the game, to test if the game works, or has any bugs in it, etc. So I suggest anyone who is unsure if they should spend money on a game before buying it blindly that they should pirate it first, and if they like the game then pay for a legit copy of the game. Pirating isnt that bad for these reasons.

That is not a valid analogy. Looking at someone's work isn't stealing, just like how looking at Minecraft on YouTube isn't stealing. However taking the painting without the owner's permission is considered stealing, and it should be considered the same for Minecraft. You can obviously watch someone play Minecraft or "see Minecraft" without pirating.
I would say it's your comparison that is incorrect. Reading a book is consuming it's content for your own usage. Playing Minecraft is consuming it's content for your own usage. If I watch you play Minecraft, that's akin to me watching you read Gone with the Wind. I didn't get to consume it, I just watched you consume it.
If I borrow your copy of Gone with the Wind and read it, did I steal? What if you rent me Gone with the Wind and I read it? What if you read it to me? What if you read it to the patrons in your Pizza place? What if you read it and I write it down? There's always a huge range of grey area.
You've said that looking at someone's work isn't stealing. When you looked at my painting, you didn't pay to see it in my gallery. So you robbed me of that potential income. That makes your actions thievery.
You can spin any of it either way. There's no real right or wrong here, there's just opinion and arbitrary current law that changes with time, place and social whims.
