Feb 8, 2011Eraiya posted a message on Strongestcraft (Xray resource packs, updated Apr. 27th 2015! Works with FTB, TFC & more mods!)Posted in: Resource Packs
For minecraft 1.8 and above: http://adf.ly/1FuqyK and http://adf.ly/1FurEf
For now, there are no F&MF or casual versions of SC for 1.8+.
They will likely be brought back sometime in the distant future.
Special thanks to echonite for helping out with this!
The best 1.7 versions:
Default Strongestcraft: http://adf.ly/qB1Us and http://adf.ly/qB1fY
Strongestcraft F&MF: http://adf.ly/qB1Wo and http://adf.ly/qB1gJ
"F&MF" stands for "(Nether) Fortress and Mycelium Finder." It makes nether fortresses and mycelium islands/blocks MUCH easier to spot from a distance, but since it makes them completely solid, you aren't able to see through them once you reach them.
Strongestcraft Casual: http://adf.ly/qB1b3 and http://adf.ly/qB1gn
The casual version makes dirt, grass, stone and sand completely solid and normal. Great for first time users, or when you're in an area with plenty of holes or ravines in the ground.

"Will you make your resource pack capable of seeing things like diamonds that are completely surrounded by stone?"
That isn't possible for me to do. That would involve editing lines of code, and that would make this a mod, not a resource pack. For most of the same reasons I plan on never making this resource pack require something like ModLoader, I also plan on never making Strongestcraft into an x-ray mod, or a separate x-ray mod to accompany it.
"Can you make it so the game shows lava/water blocks when you're underneath them/at their sides?"
Unfortunately, no; tying in with the above, that would involve modifying lines of code. It's impossible for me to make my resource pack reveal lava/water from the sides and underneath if those sides aren't in direct contact with air. Fortunately, however, you should be able to tell that lava is there due to how the area is lit up, not to mention that lava and water are impossible to miss as you're descending from the surface to the caverns below you since you'll be able to see them from the top. For more information on this, please read the lava safety guide in the first post of this thread.
"Why don't you keep all the ore's original textures or just change them all to be solid colored blocks?"
Early testing with keeping all the textures the same showed that 95-100% of people quickly became frustrated using this pack after mining great distances to reach what they thought were diamonds, only for it to be something they didn't need like coal, iron or redstone again and again and again. By changing the textures so that they're all different, they can be individually identified in pitch black areas, which is where you'll see around 95% of the ores underground: in pitch black areas where you can't see what color they are. The way ores appear now is about as efficient as it gets.
"I'm not sure how to install the resource pack!"
Don't worry, it's easy! All you have to do is:
1: Go to C:\Users\[Your Name]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks in Windows 7/8/Vista, or C:\document and settings\[Your Name]\Application Data\.minecraft\resourcepacks in Windows XP.
2: Cut this entire .zip folder to the resourcepacks folder under .minecraft. As of 1.6+, DO extract the files! Again: you ARE supposed to remove the files from this .zip folder you download from this page, as of Minecraft 1.6 and above! Cut the ENTIRE FOLDER and paste it into the above location.
3: Close the folder, start up the game, log in.
4: Under "Mods and Resource Packs," select this resource pack, then click "Done."
"Sadly, I own a Mac! What do I do?"
Follow the steps listed here after downloading the resource pack you want. Alternatively, here are different instructions from another mac owner!
[quote="dbizzzle"]What you have to do is compress all the items inside the folder, not the folder itself, so navigate to the Strongestcraft folder but DON'T zip it, go into it and zip all of the items inside it. To do this, just highlight all the files and folders inside it, right click any of them and click "Compress 29 items" (I think that's how many, but if not it's close.) Finally, just put that zipped folder into the "resourcepacks" folder in your minecraft folder, hope I could help.
"I cut and pasted the contents of the folder to the "resourcepacks" folder. Why isn't it showing up under Mods and Resource Packs after I start the game?"
You may not have done it properly - if there are two main folders *inside* the folder you placed inside your resourcepacks folders, and they're not showing up: right click them, cut them from that location and move them up 1 folder.
Picture 1. So, you just found a diamond deep underground and you're ready to mine it, huh? Well, hold on- it's on the other side of a wall, right? One that no one's broken through before? Then... Why is it lit up, as if someone's placed a torch in there? There aren't any torches in there... Oh well, let's not stop to think about what could be giving off light- let's just mine through the wall and run straight toward that diamond!
Picture 2. Or we could take the time to look at things from a different perspective. Literally. Well, would you look at that! No wonder that diamond was lit up and colored instead of shrouded in darkness! There's lava all around it! Let's look at another example of this.
Picture 3. This is the same situation, just on a larger scale. Yes, there's really lava all throughout that chamber from the floor to the ceiling. In the center-right of the picture, you can even see multiple lava animations where embers shoot out and fall back in, leaving a smoke trail behind them. It might be difficult to tell from this picture, but since it's animated in-game, it's impossible to miss if you're paying attention.
Picture 4. Caves filled to the brim with lava are very, VERY common when you're deep underground, as seen here. This is the average amount of lava that's beneath you at most times.
Picture 1. In this picture, if you look closely, you can see three dungeons. Because of the way the mossy cobblestone is lit up and green, there are two possibilities. Either the interior of the dungeon is being lit up by natural light- like lava- or it's being lit up by unnatural light- like torches that players have placed inside it. You can see torches in two of them and based on the proximity of the third to the other two, the proximity of the third to the spawn point on this multiplayer map and how rare it is for a dungeon to form in direct contact with lava, it's safe to assume that all three have been ransacked. Remember: If it's diamonds or mossy cobblestone, if it's lit up and colored, it's a trap. In the case of diamonds, there's lava nearby, likely all around it. In the case of mossy cobblestone, someone's beaten you to the dungeon and likely already taken the items from the chests.
Picture 2. This is how dungeons will appear when they're undiscovered. The one on the right is easy enough to notice at a glance, but can you see the one on the right, hidden behind a cave system from where the player is standing? Not only is it hidden behind that branch of a cave, it's hidden behind some flowing water, too, obscuring it a little more. Remember, it's often as helpful as it is important to try and look at things from different angles, both literally and figuratively.

NOT UPDATING THIS PART.
Just below this part, line breaks are broken, so it all appears to be one paragraph that's 10+ pages long.
This is a glitch and I'm not fixing it. It would take WAY too long and would benefit nobody.

You're not supposed to rely on screenshots to show what version it's for. You were supposed to have the version it's for in the front of the name of the topic, which you did.
In everyone else's defense, for about a minute and a half after posting it, there was no version in the title...
Jun 28, 2011We got this thread to be officially popular! Great job!Posted in: Forum Discussion & Info
I would just like to say thank you to Jefe323 for directing users to this thread when they express concern about this issue.
Hello there Minecraft Forums! This is my first suggestion so bare with me!
My suggestion for the forums is to add a sub forum to Beta- Survival Mode, Future Updates. Too many times have I seen a well made thread and discussion be locked and told to discuss it in one thread. (Example: Beta 1.7 Discoveries and Discussion!) While I do agree discussion of speculated and known future updates don't belong in the Beta- Survival Mode section, I don't think the discussions reach their full potential in one mega thread. For example. a player posted a thread talking about the new textures of cobblestone, mossy cobblestone, and bricks. Many players talked about why they liked and disliked the addition- but it was locked and directed to the mega thread. The use of the mega thread really discourages individual opinions and discussions based on a specific topic. The limitation of users to one thread for a wide variety of discussions is both unorganized and inefficient. It's like only dividing books in a library by Non-fiction and Fiction. You would have to search through all the fiction books just to find Lord of the Rings! If a sub forum completely about future updates was created it would allow much more serious discussion and make the jobs of the section moderators easier, as players would post in the sub forum about future updates instead of the main section.
"We already have a thread for discussions like this.
No need for duplicate threads."
A quote from a moderator. The main problem is these threads aren't duplicate! They are far more unique and have more in depth discussion than the mega thread can cover. The mega thread should just be a list of all confirmed/ highly likely but speculated future content to the game. Players should be able to freely discuss their opinions and such more freely and easily in a sub forum.
Edit: I do not mean to cause any friction with any moderator, I understand they are doing their job. I just feel there needs to be a change.
Please post if you agree or disagree with me, and why. Constructive posts are highly appreciated, I want to see both sides of the argument's reasoning, not just yes or no.
New idea: Remember before the Halloween update? We had a sub forum called the Alpha- Minecraft Halloween Update. Perhaps this forum could be named the Beta- Minecraft Adventure Update. It could be used to discuss the future update, as well as the update's features when it first comes out.
Show your support! Put this in your signature!
Update:Had an administrator take a look at it. I'm currently in discussion with them about what can be done to improve the idea to make it plausible. They have also agreed to pass it on to other staff for further opinions on the subject.
Update: One of the original problems with adding a new section was moderation. That doesn't seem to be a problem though, as they have added a whole section just for the pocket game.
Update: We achieved a 1.8 forum! Now onto a permanent Future Updates Sub Forum! HURRAH!
If you support this please "sign" the petition by giving reputation to the OP. :smile.gif:
Update:It seems they're sticking with future update forums, there's a 1.9 one now!
