I figured as much Blaze. Many thanks! And as for the withers.... shudder.


so I figured out the backup issue... it's a mod version bug. that's good. I'm no longer banging my head off the wall.

The bad news is they released an "all the mods 3 lite" pack and stopped updating "all the mods lite"

sigh

so we're stuck with unpleasant options. one, live with the server as-is forever. two, I manually update the server and everyone manually updates the clients. three, we move to a new modpack and archive this server. the one thing I don't want to go back to is building custom modpacks for download. that was a huge time suck for me.

soliciting opinions.

I am so far behind you guys, starting over would be a bummer. But your time is valuable cyclopse, so whatever is easiest for you.


In other news, my greatest tech advancement is the animal backpack.

If you'd like to see me have a meltdown, let's abandon the server I haven't finished the colosseum on

The sad thing is I don't think I would have done the ore processing the center I just spent most of the week on if I had known this.

The only thing I can really say is you guys aren't stuck with the server like this on my account forever. I imagine my days are winding down with these last big projects.

See, here's the thing. I listed three options:

1- leave it alone
2- manual updates of mods
3- start a new modpack and archive this one

The hosting we use will let me have up to 4 servers saved and 2 running at once (but both have to share 4GB memory). I don't mind just leaving this one alone, as long as people understand that a) it has problems b) the problems won't be fixed anytime soon, and c) one of the problems is reliable backups. If none of that bothers people, I'm fine leaving well enough alone.

1 is fine. Having a second server for those ready to migrate to a new adventure seems like the right compromise. You guys just have to promise to come back for a session or two when the colosseum is ready to host 'games'.

Dakar, do you want some help getting the various mob spawners? Do you know what types you want?

That's a good question because I haven't been able to pin down a coherent concept since the early stages.

The last concept I was trying to work on was a powered villager spawner. cyc tried to whitelist it for me but it hasn't worked (which may or may not be my fault). I'd like to rely on powered spawners in general so as to not over populate the area and also so the area is safe during non-game times.

It's unfortunate there are no mobs that fight each other really.

if whitelisting the powered spawner didn't work, I think I can 'godmode' them in instead. I'll test when on next.

I've seen skeletons fight each other, but perhaps they are just fighting over who gets to kill me first.

Oh, I need 8 villager souls for attractor obelisks. I'd get them myself, but I don't want to farm them from cyc and blaze who rule over them.

Iron Golems, duh.

Cyclopse, I know that powered spawner is black listed as well. So if you mind trying to pull one of those out of your hat while you're at it?

My thoughts were wolfs (attack skeletons), zombies, iron golems, and skeletons

I have a villager spawner so imprison as many as you need.

Couldn't we copy the coliseum over to the new server? Or should I just stay quiet because I'm never on...

Edit: close to rounding 100 pages here.

Dakar: I left a fashionable diamond chest at the arena. It has some ... presents... in it. (Disclaimer: the owner/operator of this server is not responsible for how you may or may not immolate yourself with the contents of said chest)

Everyone: I got the backup thing figured out (read-as: found a way to 'hack' it) so I'm willing to try and import our world into any of the modpacks found here:
https://www.akliz.net/modpacks#modpacks
This would be a non-destructive experiment. The question is, what modpack looks interesting?

Does anyone have an automated empowering system already built? Either to a) see how it's done, or b) make 2-4 stacks of empowered blocks. One by one is taking forever. You will laugh at my primitive RF abilities.

I have a bunch of ink DACA if you need them. In the lapis dye center off the kitchen.

Guardians also murder the shit out of squid outside my place

Never seen one. Also curious if there's a woodland mansion around.

I am using them for target practice, yes.

I have not seen a woodland mansion, or many other dungeons. Just the tower/mazes.

I have an idea but I need to gauge their size before installing them properly.

Yes, thanks, though I'm not sure I have a use for many of them.

Made some big progress on the Colosseum this weekend. Completion for both the aesthetic and mechanical aspects is actually within sight.

Something I learned: Iron Golems hate zombie pigmen.

Maybe I'll finish my project this weekend. The top went really well but the bottom did not fit how I expected. What I get for winging it I suppose.
