    posted a message on Modding Tips and Tricks!
    Hello! I'm re-vamping this thread to be about general knowledge and such that is useful in the mapping and modding forum.
    This page will contain various guides to help you users, old and new alike. If you have written a guide, please send it to me in a PM, with the PM title being (Guide) [insert guide name here]. If it is useful and informative, I will post it here! Also, if you find something wrong or that could be improved in a guide, just post here.

    Guide 1: How to submit a helpful, detailed crash report!

    There are several things that you should do when submitting a mod crash report to a modder.

    1. Include the crash report! If you don't give the modder the crash report and just say "It crashed!" They cannot help you! Copy and paste the crash report on the purple screen.

    2. use code tags. This will shorten your post making it easier to read, and thus less of an inconvenience to others.
    Here is how to use the code tags.
    [code][code]Your crash report here![/code][/code]

    or post your crash log using pastebin.

    3. Explain when the crash happened and what you were doing at the time! A post containing only a crash report is not helpful, and will likely not get your problem fixed.

    4. Be polite! If you go onto a mod thread and say "Omg this mod doesn't work it's ­, plz help me fix the crash!" Nobody is going to want to help you. Remember, the modders are doing this for free, because they want to!

    If you get crashes but have no error to copy then follow this guide to get an error report guaranteed.

    To run minecraft from the command line on Windows: Start->Run, enter "cmd". In the command line, enter:
    [code]java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -cp "%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\*" -Djava.library.path="%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft[/code]

    Then once the error occurs READ it, see if you can fix it yourself (maybe you forgot a dependency) you can right click > mark > select the error > right click > copy THEN paste it to the thread.

    For linux users it's pretty much the same:
    [code]cmd-linux cd ~/.minecraft/bin; java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -Xincgc -cp "minecraft.jar:jinput.jar:lwjgl.jar:lwjgl_util.jar" -Dorg.lwjgl.librarypath="$(pwd)/natives" -Dnet.java.games.input.librarypath="$(pwd)/natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft[/code]

    How to set your Java environment variable in Windows:

    1) Right-click on My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista/7) in your start menu, and open the Properties window.

    2) Click "Advanced System Settings" (in Vista, this is in the Tasks list on the left side of the window).

    3) In the System Properties window, click the "Environment variables.." button to open the Environment Variables window.

    4) Find the entry for "Path" under your System Variables. If it does not exist, double check- if it still doesn't exist, create a new variable, name it Path, and move to step 5.

    5) Edit path's variable value field by adding a semicolon (';') after any text that might be there- if the field is empty, just move on to step 6.

    6) Find where you've installed Java. For me, the path is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\bin, but yours may vary. Find out where you've installed Java and add that path to the variable value field.

    7) Hit OK on all of the windows you've opened, and your path variable should be saved. If you had any command prompts open before you set the path variable, you will have to close them and open a new command prompt for it to recognize the new path.

    You should be able to use java, javac, and other java commands now.

    If that's too much for you or it doesn't work for some reason, then you can run Java commands from the directory Java is installed in. So, find where you've installed Java (usually in your Program Files folder) and open the bin folder. Shift+Right-click on any empty space in the folder, and you should have an option to "Open command window here.." Do that and run the commands in the OP as indicated. Note: You'll have to do this every time you want to run java or javac- add it to your path variable so you can run java commands without being in the Java/bin folder.

    posted a message on [1.8.1]Tale Of Kingdoms Ver 1.0.5
    After many hours of play, including sacking 2 dungeons (I LOVE the fact that dungeons are now incredibly rewarding!) tons of cave exploring, and many nights of fighting mobs (I've used almost half a diamond sword), I am finally a KING! Time to go build a city!

    Some statistics
    Total wealth: 57,333 gold coins
    Total Playtime to get to king: 4 hours
    Total Damage Dealt: 7,275
    Total Deaths: 1

    Also, some suggestions for the future (1.9)
    I had the idea for two new buildings, the Potion Shop and a Mage guild.
    The potion shop would sell you the ingredients that are required to make potions
    (Spider Eyes, glowstone dust, redstone dust, nether wart, blaze powder, ghast tears, magma cream)
    although at very high prices. And perhaps the Mage would enchant an item for you at the cost of a lot of gold.

    Anyways, I'm having tons of fun (and ideas!)

    No, the mod will not work without the supporting mods, they are required for a reason.

    Quote from Coyotez

    I AM complaining intelligently. Did thy not read the OP?
    What do you mean uncontrolled anger? I'm controlling it perfectly. At the mod team.

    No, your not. You've taken the "I don't like something the mods did so I'm going to mage a topic raging about it and hurling insult instead of questioning/complaining civily" route.
    "Uncontrolled anger"? To put it in better terms, dude your raging.

    Then no need to feel offended, yes? Do your job right and I won't care.

    I am not offended by your attempts to insult me.

    Well see, if you happen to HAVE read the rules, but MISS megathreads (like me), you'd want to know WHY your thread was deleted without warning.
    And no matter what, A WARNING SHOULD ALWAYS BE ISSUED IF A THREAD IS MISPLACED. We're back at square one, and you are one of the bunch I'd call lazy moderators.

    Forum policy is put in place the way it is for a reaason, and sticky megathreads are incredibly obvious. And again you refuse to listen to reason and resort to hurling insults.

    That's just stupid. The OP is never a reply to anyone, so merging it with a bigger thread doesn't make the megathread anymore confusing than it will already be. And again you just proved how goddamn lazy you are.

    Perhaps I have not explained why we do not merge well enough. Beltir said what I was trying to say but better. Also, it would be a lot easier to discuss if you just dropped the insults.

    Your cache is probably corrupted/messed up, try clearing it.

    posted a message on Default avatars for users with no avatars
    Want to have no avatar?

    Simply set your avatar as this!


    It is a single pixel whose color is exactly the same as the background on which the avatar sits.

    It looks like this

    That's right. It's there. You just can't see it. Or maybe you can. But I can't.

    I have no problem with the default avatar. Nearly every forum has a default avatar.

    Please do not use work that is not your own without the original creator's permission. I could understand if you used 2 or 3 block textures, but when you use almost the entire terrain.png sheet with a few small tweaks, that's not acceptable. Please get permission from the people whose work you use.
