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

I was among the many in the San Lorenzo Valley in California that had to evacuate due to the August Lightning Complex fire. There may be somewhat less activity with my mods while we recover. My family is safe and relocated so I feel very fortunate despite likely losing our home. Thank you for your ...

Clarification -- does the hot biome temperature requirement also applies to TA4 street lamp solar cells, https://github.com/joe7575/techage/blob ... solar-cell?

Thanks.

Re: [Modpack] MicuPack [micupack]

I guess I will have to update my code as well as TechAge is a superb mod and deserves more support by the community. That would be very cool! I'm kind of missing the miner's chest and a couple of biogas machines -- freezer and compactor. These machines/tools would still fit Tech Age. Correct - but ...

Re: [Mod] Tech Age [techage]

I only got the cobblestone and no cables after digging the plastered cable. Is this the expected behavior? Yes, you have the use the trowel again to "unplaster" the cable and to get the cobblestone back. Cool update fix/patch -- plaster node can't be inadvertently removed. Liking it a lot...

Re: [Mod] Tech Age [techage]

Clarification -- the maximum length of ta4 tubes ( techage:ta4_tubeS ) is 200 blocks, right? If I wanted to extend the length, say, as far as another hundred blocks, will putting a chest-pusher combo between the 200-block and 100-block lengths somehow extend it? If so, do I need to place a force blo...

Odd block, techage:lightblock . Got this from a T4 quarry machine. Grabbed it, gave it a few right clicks and it disappeared. The block texture changed from water to torch, and back.

settingtypes.txt is only a definition file. It is parsed by the main menu settings dialogue to list mod-specific settings in the "Mods" category. So, you have to change that in the main menu settings. Oh right... thanks! Also, just found out you can do the tweak via minetest.conf : ta4_je...
