Re: [Mod] Goblins [goblins] [WIP]

Edit: Are these some of the modifications you mentioned? I can add these to the settings so they do not get reverted every time there is an update. appreciate it but I don't know if there's much demand for that - when setting up the server I had specific ideas about both sky layers and underground ...

Re: [Mod] Goblins [goblins] [WIP]

It's one of my favorite mods, though I'm on a modified fork of an old fork with no hope to bring it back inline without a lot of work. It's also running on a MP server so I have to weigh any new functionality vs performance carefully.

Is it a drop-in replacement or would that cause weirdness?

Re: [Mod_request] Better_enchant

There is only 1 enchantment I want presently: to add light to a tool so that I don't need to switch between carrying a torch and a tool constantly. How about it? I use HDX textures, so I would rather it did not cause the tool to become low resolution. Titanium mods adds a "google glass" t...

Re: I can't make permanent fire, the coal block is consumed

just modify the code; all you need is a text editor. The code in dftrees is in torchspine.lua lines 260-268; you can comment out this section entirely if you like. It might have an effect on the rest of dfcaverns, I have not looked into it deeply.

Re: [MOD] Ethereal NG [1.27] [ethereal]

I think you'll want to install farming redo by the same author for recipes.

Don't think there is an instruction manual other than looking ingame at crafting recipes (add a mod like unified inventory or craftguide) or at the code directly.

Re: [Mod] Unified Inventory [git][unified_inventory]

You don't need to make any change to the mod to disable those buttons. If you remove the user privileges, then Unified Inventory is smart enough to disable the button. I haven't seen that happen; even with no privs to set time the buttons still show. You can see it in the screenshot technowolf post...

The debug_log_level applies to messages logged to the logfile you specified, the server additionally logs everything to stdout (or stderr?) too.
You can fix that by redirecting stdout or stderr to /dev/null when you start the process.
urgh *slaps head* of course, thank you.

the point is, it's not intended expected behavior. It should not bounce given the rules that are configured.
