      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

  1. The biggest problem with the inventory size, is how to scale it properly. In the beginning every slot is a gods send as you need dozens of item types, but as you (slowly) progress you build up a place to live with storage and such, meaning you don't need to carry as many types of items. Afterall it doesn't make sense to take that pick with you if you are going out to collect more wood if you have a tool rack or something alike to store it. Similarly you won't carry your entire food supply with you when you have somewhere to store a part of it. I think the best way to equalize is to have a proper weight system, which allows the early player to carry a lot of different types of item in small amounts and the later game player to carry a lot of few types types of material. Though personally I would also be for using the food weight system for ores giving the ore blocks a yield range instead of having small, poor, normal and rich varieties of each ore.
  2. Ideas about food preservation.

    Here is another way of potentially preserving food, it however relies on something that isn't in the game yet. Alcohol. I think it most of us understand the basic principle of making alcohol out of fruits and other sugar carbohydrate rich foods, so I'll just skip that entirely. Alcohol in concentrations as you'd find in beer or wine, is mildly anti-bacterial, there are even brewing processes where the fermenting stops only because the yeast that creates the alcohol has died from the alcohol. But to get into the area where it can be used to preserve food reliably you need to distill it(which doesn't require any high tech equipment, but does take a certain amount of skill) and get over the 70%, at which point it is deadly.... to a lot of bacteria and probably too strong for general consumption. So at this point you have your alcohol(quality depending on your distilling) and now there are several ways to work with it. The easiest one, would be to just dump the stuff in the alcohol, seal the barrel/vat/jar(doesn't have to be as good of a seal as with fruit preserves like jam) and only opening it when you want to get to it's content. One big disadvantage you absolutely have to cook the stored food proir to eating to evaporate the alcohol in the meat.(eating an alcohol soaked beef will probably result in either trowing up or in a coma) Two minor disadvantages are, the food will be very dry(the alcohol pulls water out of your food) and as you'd imagine it tastes a lot like the stuff you dumped it in. Most other ways to use it are a combination of techniques, like adding alcohol to brine or vinegar(which funnily enough is made from alcohol), or applying it in combination of a marinade on to be smoked meat.(partially for taste, partially for preservation) On another point about preservation, there are some forms of food which can be stored for ages if stored correctly. Honey for example is a type of food that is very slow to decay. The form of 'decay' we usually see with it is it turning into this hard clumpy material, but by heating it up it'll usually go back to it's fluidy form and be perfectly fine. Bacteria have a really hard time dealing with the stuff, in nature it only actually breaks down after moisture in the air or general water have diluted the honey enough to allow for bacteria growth. If stored dry, it can last decades.(Or at least 6 years, from personal experience, still perfectly edible) Another food source which can hold for a very long time naturally is the humble potato, if stored in a dark, somewhat cool and dry area these can a very long time, and may even atempt to sprout during that period. In fact potato peels are known to frequently sprout in composting bins or when the compost is spread through the garden. These two are only examples as there are many other food items which can be preserved with little to no effort.(I believe beans were also decently preservable)

    Because the computer which acts as server has auto-standby if the server isn't in active use. Meaning that if the admin isn't busy on the computer it will auto-shut down the server, which would lead to the server being shut down and wasting power.
  4. regrowing leaves

    well there are also those who build with wood and then willow alone isn't going to cut it.

    Though the things that would require a PHD in physics would improve the need for teamwork in SMP, as not everyone would be able to do such stuff safely, creating a road towards a community type of server.
  6. ~Newside~ (DISCONTINUED | For map and whitelist, see topic!)

    The server updates aren't that bad, so far they just came as a result of me checking for imporant fixes or big changes for SSP and SMP. So it answer the question, we don't update unless the poeple on the server feel that the update is important enough, as it generally requires a map reset.(So no updates for minor fixes, if there already has been build a lot)
  7. ~Newside~ (DISCONTINUED | For map and whitelist, see topic!)

    Update+ map reset required again. Fixes involving the particle effects of coal pits, the ghost crystals, spawning of squids in the new oceans, ore distribution. And the replacement of the stone sword in favor of a javelin.(texture update too)
  8. Stone Tools???

    Igneus rocks give harder tools, and either the extrusive or intrusive would be the hardest kind. My guess is the extrusive as basalt is seen as the hardest of all.
  9. Unstable Metal's

    Agreed actually, if you want the high tech things, you'd go to industerialcraft and such anyways. And the steampunk envoirment is so much more enjoyable. And so much less automatable than the high tech.

    let's say you have had the subject nuclear fission in physics. If so you'd know that what is responsible for fission are free neutrons, these aren't light waves they are simply mass and therefore will not be reflected. Thus you'd know that it wouldn't go cataclysmic near reflective surfaces. When handling this subject we were told to take the effects of gamma radiation as nonexistant, as it generally doesn't contain the energy to cause fission. The only thing you need to take care about is to not make the clump of refined uranium so large that loose neutrons are absorbed within the clump(the basic working of an atomic bomb), because that will have a 99% chance to go bad, really bad.

    turns out nuclear reactors are very safe, if you look at recent history: fukushima. Well let's say it could have gone far worse, the tsunami had knocked out nearly all safety systems on that reactor, including the a generator failure and the cooling system being destroyed which were the most vital pieces of the safety system. And still no chain reaction meltdown. Those things are in fact safer than most coal powered or gas powered powerplants. backj to the original content. Bioxx did include pitchblende, which is raw uranium, with a whole load of other crap in that direction. So the chances are there will be some sort of nuclear system in the future, unless he plans using it as a metal.... *Behold my glowing uranium sword*. Then there is the aluminium ore, which I still don't understand why he didn't pick bauxite for. Which is also a quite modern metal.(Just to put it out there, you'll be able to smelt it easier than copper, but it needs hotter fire than the starter metals)
  12. Mod compatibility wishlist

    like wood stacks trying to stack into eachother.
  13. Thught this should be shared...

    Kinda looks life a rifle with the barrel in the ground.
  14. Unstable Metal's

    Though you should note that using uranium in any case is a juggling act with chainsaws. The heat created by such an urianium ngot can easily lead to your bloomery turning into a puddle of lava. Hence the name meltdown when a nuclear reactor decides to go bad, it just melts the reactor chamber.
  15. Unstable Metal's

    Given that radiation is a form of energy that can easily be translated to heat... Uranium cored forges?
