    posted a message on [1.1]Jacob's SP Expansion(Version 0.02)

    Current version: 0.02

    Hello! This is my first mod ever and is only about 6 days into development, but I decided there is so much added that it is worth putting out a (very) early version for people to try out! Keep in mind I have a LOT of plans and ideas of features to add in the future! Please feel free to post suggestions!

    Jacob's SP Expansion Changelog

    |FEB 21st, 2012| Updated to V0.02

    (I will be updating the screenshots, items etc in the thread soon. Download link is updated!)


    • New biome Enchanted Forest. Here you will find enchanted trees, grass, dirt and stone. You
    • will be able to turn 2 enchanted logs into 8 enchanted sticks which can be used along with enchanted
      stone to create new tools. Enchanted berries will also drop out of the leaves in the trees. A pie recipe for these berries will be added in a future update but for now can be eaten for 2 hunger bars.

    • New toolset Enchanted, as effective as iron as durable as stone.
    • Changed to Peaks biome to generate more dramatic mountains.
    • Sand rock and Mossy stone will now generate underground instead of on the surface.
    • Ruby and Emerald will now be mined as the rough version of the gem instead of the cut version.
    • Bandits will no longer drop 2 of the same item. Also Stone Berry has been taken off of their
    • loot table. Instead they will now drop apples. A new custom food item will be re-added to them
      in a future update.

    • Added saphire gem to be found in enchated forest biome. No use yet.

    Credits:

    HUGE thanks to x2robbie2x! I learned a huge majority of what I know so far about modding from him and his wonderful tutorials! If you are wanting to get started on learning to mod, check out his youtube channel!

    Also thanks to TechGuy543, TheInstitution, XTremity and Muserae! Learned some stuff from their tutorials as well.

    Thanks to Gaz121 on Minecraftskins for the skin of the bandit mob (using his skin temporarily until I stop being lazy and make a custom one).
    Description of Jacob's Singleplayer Expansion:

    The main goal of this mod is to encourage players to travel the world in seek of harder to find materials. I've done this by adding Biome-Specific gems which will all be needed to obtain top end tools and items!

    This mod currently (as of V0.02) adds:


    • 14 new minable gems, ores and stones!
    • 13 new tools/weapons!
    • 2 new biomes!
    • 1 new mob!
    • 1 new food item!

    Keep in mind I have a LOT more planned!

    ">**Requires ModLoader!**

    In development:
    • Tall redwood forest biome
    • A miner mob that will be found in the peaks biome (bandit will be moved to another biome).

    Gems:

    Gems are minable and found throughout the world. Gems will be mined as a rough gem, then crafted into a cut gem. Some gems can also be crafted from a cut gem into a large gem. Gems can also be melted down and then combined into a composite ingot.


    Ruby (Semi-Common) - found in all biomes, up to 55 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to melt down to help create the composite ingot, can also be crafted into a large ruby which are needed for the first aid block.

    Emerald (Uncommon) - found in all biomes, up to 25 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to melt down to help create the composite ingot. No other uses, yet.

    Pyrite (Common in desert biome) - found only in desert biomes, up to 128 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to melt down to help create the composite ingot. No other uses, yet.

    Moss Agate (Common in swamp biome) - found only in swamp biomes, up to 128 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to melt down to help create the composite ingot. No other uses, yet.

    Beryl (Very rare) - found in all biomes, but slightly less rare (but still rare) in the new peaks biome, up to 15 blocks above bedrock. No current uses, yet.

    Ores/Ingots:

    Copper (Semi-Common) - found in all biomes, but very commonly found in the new peaks biome. Current uses are to be smelted into copper ingots, which can be used to make a pickaxe, an axe, a sword, a spade and a hoe. Copper is as fast as stone and as durable as iron.

    Silver (Semi-rare) - found in all biomes, up to 20 blocks above bedrock. No current uses, yet.

    Fiery Coal (Uncommon) - found in all biomes, up to 35 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to craft into 8 fiery torches, using the same recipe as a normal torch but with fiery coal instead of coal. Also can be used in a furnace for smelting/cooking, lasts twice as long as normal coal.

    Quartz Monzonite (Semi-Common in new peaks biome) - Only found in the new peaks biome, up to 128 blocks above bedrock. Current uses are to be crafted into 6 compressed quartz which can then be crafted into a quartz sabre.

    Composite Ingot - Only obtained by crafting together a melted ruby, a melted emerald, a melted moss agate, and a melted pyrite (in that order in a 2x2 square). Used to created composite pick and spade along with granite rods. More tools/armor/uses in the future.

    Stones / Rocks:

    Frost Stone (Common in Snow biomes) - only found in snow biomes up to 128 blocks above bedrock. Current use is to be smelted into hardened frost stone which is used in the first aid block recipe.

    Enchanted Stone (Extremely common in Enchanted Forest Biome) - A magical stone that drops as cobblestone which can be used to create the enchanted toolset.

    Granite (Extremely common in new peaks biome) - Only found in the new peaks biome, near and on the surface. Current use is to crafted into granite rod with the same recipe as crafting planks into sticks. Granite rods can be used to craft composite pickaxe and spade.

    Mossy Stone (Extremely common in swamp biome) - only found in swamp biome. No uses, yet.

    Sand Rock (Extremely common in desert biome) - only found in desert biome. No uses, yet.

    Tools/Weapons:

    Composite: Top-end gear so far. Currently you can craft a pickaxe and a spade, using the same recipe as normal except using granite rods instead of sticks.

    Enchanted: As effective as iron and as durable as stone. You will need to travel to a Enchanted Forest biome to collect enchanted logs to be made into sticks and enchanted stone to create this toolset.


    Quartz Sabre: Top end weapon so far. Can be crafted using the nearly same recipe as a sword, with compressed quartz, granite rods instead of sticks, and a composite ingot on each bottom corner.

    Copper: As durable as iron and as effective as stone. Can be crafted using copper ingots and standard crafting recipes.

    Other:

    First Aid block - Heals you when you make contact with it. Recipe can be found in other screenshots section.

    Biomes:

    Peaks - A mountainous region very rich in granite and also more rich in copper than other biomes. Also unique to this region is Quartz Monzonite. This is where you will need to come to obtain granite rods to help create composite tools.

    Screenshot:

    Enchanted Forest - Full of magical trees which can be chopped down for enchanted logs to make 8 enchanted sticks from 2 enchanted logs. This is also where you will found the unique stone, enchanted stone, which can be used with enchanted sticks to create an enchanted tool set.

    Screenshot



    Mobs:

    Currently only one new mob added, the bandit. This mob is only found in the new peaks biome. Comes out at night but remains to lurk during the day. Potential to drop A quartz sabre, a rough beryl, a copper ingot, the new food item stone berry which restores 2 hunger bars, and a wheat.

    Screenshot (Texture by Gaz121 on MinecraftSkins, custom texture to come)

    More Screenshots:






































    To do list:

    Crossed out = done.

    Add gems Sapphire, Topaz and Amethyst.
    Add titanium ore.
    Add moss man mob.
    Add enchanted forest biome. Also debating doing a tall redwood forest.
    Complete composite tool set.
    Add silver tool set. (Will mine as fast as diamond and last as long as iron)
    Add Quartz Armor.
    Add biome-specific plants like stone berries (having issues getting them to generate but once they do I will be able to add lots!). Once I have plants generating I will add recipes like stoneberry pie (yum!)
    Re-texture granite block (Make it less like digital camo).
    Re-texture composite tools and ingots (maybe make it less like rainbow sherbert).
    Add a randomly generated structure "Bandit Hideout" with a bandit spawner and some chests.


    Post suggestions in this thread!

    Known bugs:

    Bandit will sometimes drop 2 of the same item. - Fixed with the help of GreenSunkiss. Thanks a million!
    It seems that bandits are spawning outside of the peaks biome.
    Not confirmed totally, but I think sometimes game mode has to be toggled to peaceful then back into normal for mobs to spawn. Not sure yet, going to look into it.

    Download

    Version 0.02!

    **My mod appears to be incompatible with OptiMine... I have no idea why :S**

    **Delete your META-INF folder inside the minecraft.jar!**

    Well that's it guys! I will be doing a lot more work on this mod. My plan is to just keep developing it over the course of a month or so until there's a huge amount of new things in the game!

    Remember, post comments, suggestions and bugs in this thread!
