  Originality in modding for Minecraft
Posted by: Rin - 12-03-2019, 07:44 AM - Forum: Minecraft - No Replies

These days on Minecraft it seems that nothing is original-- most concepts have been done before, for example:

  • The Aether, Ether, Heaven and any "Paradise" dimension mods.
  • Ruby mods
  • Emerald (or obsidian) tools.
  • New generic ores mods and their corresponding tools.
  • New gems
  • Generic new crops mods.
Most of these "generic" and unoriginal mods tend to only add a few or around 10 to 50 items into the game which has been done before by a different mod creator. Though the most annoying of these mods are the extreme amounts of "ruby" mods there are on the Minecraft modding community. Another quality of these mods are new ores and new tiers of weapons or tools which amount to nothing eventually due to the fact that they're "end-game" content and the outcome of the mod is inevitably predictable by anyone who has played with them mods before.

Now before we go into the more unoriginal mod concepts, let's take a breather and look at some examples of original mods:
  • Hack/Slash/Mine mod-- original concept; converts Minecraft into an entirely new game.
  • Mods that change core gameplay mechanics
  • Mods that create new devices and experimentation is mostly unlimited.
  • Mods that allow flexibility to the player
  • Mods that turn the game into a harder game by changing core aspects of the game.
  • Mods that increase the replayability of Minecraft.
  • Another great example is Mystcraft (which is an amazing mod)
  • Mods that create an atmosphere; for example many mods that manipulate a certain frame of time period or new dimension that's extremely frightening to a new player and unrecognizable from other mods.
  • Mods that don't use the typical Minecraft textures.
There are obviously more examples to what makes a powerful and original Minecraft mod; but those are the base outliers to what makes a great mod. You can, however, make a great and awe-inspiring mod with an unoriginal concept -- but it is much harder to create a more fun environment in the mod as one would predict the outcomes of such an unoriginal mod.


Mostly, the most complex of mods (especially ones that add a scripting system for other players to add content to that mod OR create a way for another player to add content (aka the Millenaire mod)) tend to be the most fun and have a prolonged lifespan than those that are unoriginal (or with predictable outcomes) or boring mods.

With that said, if you do create mods and it's unoriginal; please make it so that no outcome is predictable. At least make it different in a variety of ways OR just create an original mod with new concepts and creativity.

Thank you for reading this short essay.

  Dahy's Resource Pack [MINECRAFT]
Posted by: Rin - 11-28-2019, 05:43 PM - Forum: Share Your Creations - Replies (20)

Dahy's Resource Pack for Minecraft version 1.14.x (updating to 1.15.x upon release in future) is a resource pack which plans to drag the atmosphere of Minecraft into a much more darker and depressing phrase-- something to make the game much more into a dark atmosphere.

This pack is nowhere near done and the creator, Dahy, doesn't have much time and has planned to post the pack here to make sure it doesn't get lost (though it is in a workable state at the moment-- there does need to be much more additions in future).

Current Version: BETA-4.1

Currently the pack adds 2 new art pieces, changes most armor, changes most tools and will refine the landscape of Minecraft (currently the 5 logs excluding oak need work done). It is currently at a workable state and will most likely be finished around mid-2020.

Here are some images of the current version (workable version, some are old but still usable)

SCI-FI-ish DIAMOND ARMOR (I don't care if people think sci-fi is out of place in Minecraft.)

LEATHER ARMOR

Much more to be adding over the coming months. I am not usually active, but here is the resource pack anyway.

HOW TO INSTALL:

Open %APPDATA% OR C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks (CHANGE C TO WHAT DRIVE YOU USE AND USERNAME TO YOUR PC USERNAME)

Move the rinpack.zip to the folder and launch Minecraft 1.15.x then wallah! It's installed!

  Killing Peasants in Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven
Posted by: Rin - 11-02-2019, 10:54 PM - Forum: Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven - No Replies

Previously, I tried to see how much experience I'd get from killing peasants *such a notorious thought*. Turns out that there isn't really much experience to be gained except losing 100 reputation which requires a donation at a temple (Temple of Baa is the best temple to do get your reputation back to neutral!).

You can do this to get Master in Dark Magic as you need a reputation of -1000 to be qualified to learn Dark Magic Master (it's easier to get this than Light Magic Master).


Here's a video where I run through Free Haven being extremely evil! muhahahahah

Since most of you viewing this don't want any extra details except the code. Here is the code:

NJDLBOG

  Security Issues
Posted by: Rin - 10-30-2019, 05:11 PM - Forum: Main Discussions - No Replies

Sorry about being offline recently, my parents had their amazon account hacked into and we nearly lost £25. Luckily though Amazon was quick to recover it and the person who did it had leaked their email address by accident: 

[Image: AMAZON_EMAIL_FAIL.png]

Stupid idiots, they shouldn't really use their real email address when they tried to send a gift card from my parents amazon account. The email address in name is; "mredw0@gmail.com". They probably found my parents email address on a data breach that happened in [redacted]. Ironically, I pulled a "HaveIBeenPWNED" on them and found that they've been breached recently. 

You shouldn't use your main email for everything, stupid. Since doing a search found their YouTube channel.

[Image: AMAZON_EMAIL_FAIL_2.png]

Some more proof of them being a YouTuber with "56.4K" subscribers. It seems like even people with a bit of popularity are shady despite having a following. 

I have since told my parents that a password of 8 characters and only 2 numbers is not a good idea. They now have a password with special symbols, numbers, and over 20 characters. I do too; but I encrypt my passwords in a USB and change USB's every year while having around 200-2000 character passwords.

Safety should be your first priority in this crazy world full of shitty people.

Be safe y'all!
