I'm convinced thaumcraft reduces squid spawns
(in other words, sorry kevin for leaving your scribing tools empty :/)

7:38 AM
@Unionhawk heh no prob :)
Did you discover the reason I have 3 research tables? :)
 
@KevinvanderVelden I think I know it, isn't it for the table-bound aspects?
7
A: How can I get more research points?

ArperumResearch is an exciting journey, the results are fantastic (most of the time anyway). First dig a hole, find some crystal shards, make clusters out of them and decorate the area around your bookcase with them. Oh, you didn't have a bookcase? Every self respecting mage has his research table acco...

 
Yes :D
3 times the tables is 3 times the bonus points
I've run out of mostly Ordo research so I just use it from the tables
 
@KevinvanderVelden Yea, ordo is horribly scarce.
I've been running out myself.
 
The only thing I have a problem with is with research you need to buy, can't use table points for that
So that's when I craft a bunch of smooth sandstone =p
 
@KevinvanderVelden And then deconstuct it all.
 
7:44 AM
Jup
 
I've been taking a rather casual approach to it, can't buy it? Not getting it yet.
Also: terra is pretty common. I keep finding ways to go to a terra/glass(terra+aqua) pattern and then keep using that to connect stuff.
 
You mean the crystal thing? That's terra/ordo, Life is terra/aqua
But yeah that's my plan as well
 
@Arperum are you going to add the deconstruction table to that answer?
 
@ratchetfreak I should, shouldn't I?
@KevinvanderVelden Yea, that one, because I have a bunch of that. I've been thinking of using wood every now and then though, since I have a bunch of that too.
 
Probably
@Arperum I use arbo every time I need something with aer
 
7:54 AM
@KevinvanderVelden Yea, and you can go to terra from there through herba.
 
Jup, and herba is 99% useless and there's plenty of it available :D
 
gah, what is the markup for spoiler stuff? I want to hide the deconstruction table info.
 
Uh, I'm not sure =/
 
got it! ">!" seems to work
@ratchetfreak Added!
I seem to be our top thaumcraft answerer for some reason...

9:13 AM
Anybody got a good building designer tool for Minecraft? The "Minecraft Structure Planner" one is atrocious and not updated since 2011 ...
 
@MartinSojka Nope. I've used MSP in the past too. but lately it's back to paint and creative mode for testing stuff out.
 
oh man, I have no idea what mod adds those sloped blocks, but want: i.imgur.com/c42nauF.png
 
Carpenter's Blocks
 
@Jochem There was kaevada's long ago. Or at least that was the name of it I think.
 
@Jochem soo much storage
 
9:17 AM
@KevinvanderVelden All full!
 
IIRC, the only bad thing about Carpenter's Blocks is that the slopes act like stairs (for collision detection purposes), but I think you can configure/fix that.
 
Not all, but a significant part anyway.
 
Or at least smooth it out a bit.
 
9:39 AM
@Arperum I did not know about the book case part of it. So like an enchanting table, or just a bookcase next to the table will do?
 
Jup, more bookcases works faster!
 
@MartinSojka eh, it looks shiny, that's what important
 
@TimPost IIRC more shoudl improve the speed, but not sure, and can't search for a source to back that up right now.
 
9:55 AM
From what I read every 30 seconds it checks every block in range, then for each block that is special it has a chance of granting a bonus aspect
 
@KevinvanderVelden Sounds fancy. What range(I'd assume 10 blocks or less)? Also: source, plz.
 
@KevinvanderVelden inb4 solid cube of bonus blocks around research table
 
Need more leather first
 
10:25 AM
@KevinvanderVelden Do it with Brain in a Jar, that seems to be faster based on your source (or that's what I understood from it)
 
@Arperum probably, brain in a jar is also probably harder to make
 
@KevinvanderVelden shush. you are looking at flimsy details again.
 
It's an arcane infusion now, that's a nuisance
 
@KevinvanderVelden gah. and filling jars with essentia has become more of a nuisance too.
 
@Arperum pipes and golems :)
 
10:29 AM
@KevinvanderVelden Do I see a wizard tower where there are golems running around the place doing stuff everywhere?
 
@Arperum maybe
There's also sorting golems now...
 
@KevinvanderVelden AE doesn't really need sorting though.
 
@Arperum true true
 
There are also fishing golems, but who needs fish >_<
Except that we need to maybe scan them or might need some for random infusion crafting.
 
@Arperum fish is food, I'm running my base off of food =p
Also you get enchanted books from fishing now
 
10:48 AM
@KevinvanderVelden That sounds fancy.
 
11:40 AM
@KevinvanderVelden someone needs to make a mod where all you can fish up is leather boots
 
12:24 PM
Pretty sure that's a possible outcome anyway
 
 
2 hours later…
2:27 PM
Glenn's Gasses is awesome. Spelunking and digging got a whole lot interesting (and explosive). Yay! I just wish it worked with the usual fluid mechanics.
 
3:07 PM
@MartinSojka no I hate that mod =p
I can't bloody mine with simple torches without everything exploding!
 
 
2 hours later…
4:51 PM
@KevinvanderVelden Works for me, I just need to pay attention (and WAILA helps).
 
 
1 hour later…
6:03 PM
Hey @Arperum, what kind of biome do we want to be in? I'm building a nether portal to find someplace cool
 
@KevinvanderVelden Do have a look at 500,400 I torched a 49x49 square over there, see if you like it. Or search for some other nicelooking place. And then DO pay attention to chunkborders when lining out the square that'll contain our tower. (one line of torches has to be just outside a chunk on N/S and E/W
I don't care for a Biome, but a snow biome probably wouldn't be the best plan because snow +solar panels = no clue if it still works.
 
I'm at 914/2814 via nether portal, so much aura nodes o.o
Also! A bright one
 
@KevinvanderVelden I like that place!
Can we use that node as a supernode?
 
Probably
There's a ice castle here
 
@KevinvanderVelden The only reason I'm not logged in and racing your way right now is because I'm eating.
 
6:14 PM
Giant walled city!
Can we build a tower of doom next to them and govern them? :D
 
@KevinvanderVelden Sound like a plan, start by painting a 49x49 square, with one of the corners in the corner of a chunk.
Also, make a clear indication of the middle of the sides, for convenience
 
So, some villager thought it a good idea to build a library above a lava lake
 
@KevinvanderVelden Sounds hot.
 
@Arperum I've saved 2 and a half stacks of books
 
@KevinvanderVelden Neat!
 
6:20 PM
I think I saved the wall
Ender-Lily seed!
And a builders wand in the same chest
Also a bunch of ingots and a thaumium sword
 
@KevinvanderVelden That is convenient
 
Yes, now we can wait with the mobfarm :)
 
@KevinvanderVelden Yea, first build in all cobble.
 
... there's a village next to the first village xp
 
6:40 PM
And some snow nearby, IIRC the blue stone line needs ice , so we can go and freeze water over there, or find some other way to make it.
 
6:55 PM
Downside: There is a sinister node nearby
A rather large one
 
@KevinvanderVelden Once our bright one is large enough, we'll let that one eat the sinister one, and then clean up with these taint/evil biome cleaning flowers whose name I can't remember.
 
@Arperum it's a 122 uuh black thing node though
 
@KevinvanderVelden Damn, that's pretty big.
Oh well, easier access to angry zombies, or were it some other super zombies that these things caused?
I remember getting a shitton of rotten flesh from them. And them growing when they got damage. Setting them on fire was hilarious.
 
super zombies
 
7:49 PM
those furious zombies were a pain
 
@Jochem Also hilarious on fire. When you were in cover, otherwise it was somewhat less fun.
 
@Arperum yeah, the whole two hits and you're dead thing wasn't that fun :) But you're right, they look awesome when they're on fire ^_^
 
8:33 PM
@Arperum I've marked a place and cleared it off trees
It's not super flat but should work
 
@KevinvanderVelden Alright!
At what height is it? (average)
 
One corner ends at 90 but the rest is 77
We could get a filler and lower it a couple of levels without it looking odd
 
Let me know when it is safe to go alone
A survivalist generator generates less per tick than a pink generator.
The more you know
 
9:17 PM
Huh
 
server went down?
 
Seems like it
Oh well
 
I just disconnected normally
Hrm
 
Time for bed it is
I got forcefully disco-ed
Shame I was just about to build a wand of equal trade =[
I've got the excavataion focus though
 
@KevinvanderVelden Same here
 
9:19 PM
What's the prerequisite research for warding focus, by the way? Excavation?
Yep, connection refused
 
@Unionhawk I'm not 100% sure, I think it's scanning something with armor
I think it's a hidden one
 
Bah
Oh, right, it's a nether star anyway
 
@KevinvanderVelden I have it unlocked. it requires you to infusion enchant a nether star.
I did scan a crapton of random things though.
 
I'm not finding it in hidden research :?
Oh well, it's both infusion and a nether star
It's a long way away
since I'm way too lazy to do infusion at the moment
 
@Unionhawk I scanned iron armor, a ghast, a magma cube, loads of random blocks and things. Both living and dead. Not sure if I scanned a blaze actually...
I've had loads of times where the message "you discovered a clue to a new research" popped up.
 
9:35 PM
@Arperum Yep. I'm glad it's not like old thaumcraft where scanning things meant also carrying around paper and scribing tools, or else lose research.
 
@Unionhawk Yea, that would've been bad.
 
That mechanic annoyed me
Then again, a lot of things with thaumcraft annoyed me
Lack of control over what you research, first and foremost
 
Well the new version has some definite improvements.
 
Yep.
SCREW YOU TRANSMUTATION RESEARCHES I DON'T WANT YOU
(and now I have that option)
 
@Unionhawk You only have to do one, the others are for buying.
 
9:38 PM
Or, I can do none
And I choose none because the transmutation researches are pointless
 
Meh, completionist me will buy them all one day.
 
We don't have Thaumic Tinkerer >_>
 
@Unionhawk Nor tinkers construct.
 
9:55 PM
hmm, maybe we should ping @TimPost that the server decided to take a nap.
 
 
1 hour later…
11:10 PM
Removed void fog today. Now we don't need to tick air blocks (seriously, WTH?), and honestly, who actually *liked* the void fog?
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(though I'm sure there's a few custom maps that this breaks)
Pretty sure vechs uses the void fog for aesthetic purposes in some areas, particularly around red/black wool areas
