You can also use the spare server for adventure map runs. I think that'd be pretty awesome.

If I had more time, I would. So y'all build the castles and shit, and I'll come up with goals, eventually, and change it back to adventure instead of creative.

I'm not dead. No usurping my kingdom. Also, definitely no angering my secret sheep god statue. For that would mean digging too deep and greedily.

Enchanting books

Postby Feylias » Fri Jul 05, 2013 7:57 pm UTC

Frustrated with enchanting books/armor and getting what I saw as useless enchants, I have been experimenting with enchanting books at level 1 and then combining those books on an anvil for higher levels with precision.
Blagtiem:
Spoiler:
Enchanting armor and tools directly gives a bonus to the enchant's level, but I want to stack enchantments and so need books.

According to the wiki it costs 17 XP to advance one XP level (henceforth XPL) until you make level 16, so there's no loss of efficiency by saving up 16 levels and spending them incrementally. I just learned this, and it's a load off my mind.

Enchanting books at level one will only get you a shot at Protection 1, Efficiency 1, Power 1, Aqua Affinity, Sharpness 1, or Power 1. According to this wiki page I might get better results starting at level 5, 10, or 15 in order to get a shot at higher enchantments.

Adding two level 1 books (okay, roman numeral I, henceforth r1) costs 2 XPL on the anvil, r2+r2 = 5XPL, r3+r3 = 7XPL, and r4+r4 = 10XPL.

To put together an r5 book (Sharpness, power, or efficiency) you will spend 16 books, 76 XPL (or 16(1xpl)+8(2xpl)+4(5xpl)+2(7xpl)+10xpl, which is relevant if you spend down from level 17 or greater), and 31 trips to the anvil/enchantment room.

r4 is 8 books, 15 trips to the workshop, and 33 XPL.

Note that these trips to the workshop are also typically opportunities for your anvil to get damaged.

*Note: I just combined r4+r4 for 7XPL...I think. That makes no sense. I am confus. Maybe it was r3+r3. Anyway, my conclusion stands:
Conclusion: Unless you have all the Fortune/Silk/Unbreaking/Infinity/etc you want, it's smartest to just enchant books at high level and then shelve the books you don't want. Arthropods/Smite/Blast/Fire/Projectile are the cost you pay for a shot at the good stuff, and at least you're not making as many trips to the anvil/burning so much leather.

My goal is topmost-tier armor/weapons/tools that can be repaired indefinitely. I believe (haven't yet tested) renaming an item caps the repair cost so that it's always attainable. I need to look into whether it's best to rename items before you enchant them, and whether it's best to put the initial enchantment on the items with an anvil or with an enchanting table.

In other words, create a new profile in the 1.6 launcher and set it to version 1.6.1.

Set up a small stable near the north train station in Pandora if anyone wants to try giving horsies a whirl.

I decided this warranted a new post instead of an edit.

Good news everyone the new spleef field is complete. It has 2 current set game modes and can be alternated between them with red stone. Also I think this may be one of the first uses of hard/coloured clay on the server.

I have also taken to breeding horses.

Info about the next games

I do not know when they will happen to be but I do know what I would like to be in them. Different kinds of spleef. I plan on setting up a king of the ladder field somewhere. I might use vines instead of ladders. Havnt decided yet, it depends on the look I am going for. I might also add a horse race around plains city. It would go along the outskirts and there would be flags one would have to go around. A time nor date has been set yet. I can provide horses to those who do not have them. I think that covers most of the games news.

MIASACraft map is completely borked. Doesn't even work as a client world. Restart with 1.4.7 or 152wgt?

Hey everyone, I thought I would stop in and apologize for disappearing a while back. I had a couple month course that required almost all of my time, and after that I didn't really feel like looking at a computer. After that, I forgot about Minecraft and XKCD for the most part.

Anyways, I thought I would say thanks to everyone for accepting me into the server and helping me out a lot with it. I feel like an ass for leaving a mess of the floating island and for consuming goods without being able to produce some in return though.

On MIASACraft, I have made an executive decision. We have restarted a new 1.4.7 world with the Direwolf20 pack. Something in Ultimate completely messed up the previous world. Enjoy the return of the modded minecraft server.

Oh, and the Black Forest Airport is open! (and has been for weeks) However all planes are grounded until the volcano clears up. It will be clear, once a mod has checked the airport...

Infina, are you currently planning on making a 1.5 Direwolf20 server? (Supposedly worlds made with the 1.5 pack are expected to be able to be migrated to 1.6 once they eventually get the packs up to that).

Possible will be done on Friday(Depends on how my Thursday goes). It will cause a world reset, both at 1.5 and 1.6, but at this point, it is kinda unavoidable.

Edit: Current Options -

1.5.2 FTB Unleashed
1.5.2 FTB Unhinged
1.5.2 Direwolf20

For 1.6, I will look into the best options, with the way that the new launcher works. I will soon have a modded 1.6.2 world for testing on miasacraft2, and 1.5.2 on MIASACraft. I am going to look into mods for bringing MIASACraft back to what I envisioned originally, and miasacraft2 will be either a dev version server or a modded creative build server.

New post for news about MIASACraft.

1. New world with the Direwolf20 1.5 pack, v1.1.1. This means WRCBE, MFR, Tinkerer's Construct and Natura. I have started work on a computercraft program to store and request chunks of 16 enderstorage colors. This means that Ender Chests and Ender Tanks have a 2 color prefix for each player.

2. I am managing the server not with a whitelist, but permissioning. You can do nothing other than logging in if you are not escalated to member privileges.

3. I am planning a new website for the server. Details will come out after finalization with sophiamaster.

Anyone have a recommendation for a server host for a small server running Better Than Wolves? I'm looking for a server with capacity for maybe 4-8 players; that Minecraft Realms thing sounds ideal (assuming they're planning on letting people use older versions of Minecraft and mods on those little servers), but it's still in alpha.

Actually, I deleted everything and replaced it with a map that was identical with the exception of a single block being misplaced by five meters.

I was playing last night and the server crashed. When it came back and I got on, I was back at spawn with no inventory and my ender chest was empty.

Thought it might have been a temporary thing, but it's all still missing.
