    Default Iskandar's Travels in Industrial Minecraft: Reboot

    AKA: I'm not dead, and now neither are the forums.

    Finally getting time again to start making videos, so here I am again. My apologies to all for vanishing like that.

    So, with things calmed down a tiny bit, it is time to start another LP. And since I've been wanting to get back into Minecraft again, I figured now would be an appropriate time.


    Playlist is here.

    And Episode 1 of Iskandar's Travels is now live here.


    And, for completeness sake, the mods I am using:

    The timing of this forum going down was just wonderful. Finish recording and uploading the first video, boom, no forum for 2 days.

    Also, sorry about the mic volume for the first 3 episodes, it is a brand new computer and I hadn't checked my volume levels. The following videos should be much better.

    I'm only on video 2 so far, but I'm enjoying them. I just want to point out that at 34:19, you can see a giant face in the wall, and I was wondering if that was because of one of the mods.

    Huh. Not intentionally. Random generation does some weird things, apparently.

    Odd. The chances of random generation doing that must be very slim, and you must be very lucky

    You know, Isk; in theory, you could use Youtube's scheduling ability to schedule your episodes to come out one day after another. On one hand, it'd give you less pressure you play tons and be less noticeable when there are periods between video releases... on the other hand, at the frequent rate you are putting them out at; they could pile up.

    Just a suggestion, don't know how popular it would be with others or yourself. I already like that they're broken up into 30 minutes, helps when flash crashes on me (which seems regularly when I have Facebook games and Youtube running.

    Good lineup. I don't normally use Steve's Carts or Railcraft simply because with Thaumcraft2, there's Portals for getting around with. I also tend to avoid Portal Gun mod simply because that's not my play style. But other than that, very similar to what I typically run with.

    I definitely look forward to watching your series!

    Yeah, I noted that in my videos. You can see me going into NEI and,saving my inventory before going to a new age, just incase the game crashes. Which it did for that cave world in episode 11.

    Just cave wasn't that bad for loading, but cave+sky took several minutes to load and requited re-logging was the loading was done.
    One bad thing about Cave world is that if you have decay it is really hard to fine. I had a couple of blocks I found by pure luck.Do all Cave world have sand stone rows, then endless void at their bottom?

    Edit:Just had a close call in a cave world. The answer for this one is yes, there is only strips of blocks(dirt this time), and endless void. Luckily I had 3 swords of zephyr so I was able to right click spam to fly on to one of the strips, then linked book out of there.

    RP2 + Cave World lags because of how RP2 generates Marble. Once generation is complete, you don't have any further problems.

    This is a known bug, which has the potential for crashing your game. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot one can do about it. Best thing, if you don't use NEI, is to go into an unexplored world with minimal and sacrificial equipment. My typical exploration setup is about a half stack of torches, my link book back to the Overworld, bread or melons, and stone tools. If I crash and it punts me back to spawn, no big harm done.

    Eh, I use CraftGuide for keeping track of recipies, and simply use expendable adventuring kits when exploring new undefined ages. But that is a perfectly valid use for NEI, I will admit.

    Oi. Apparently I have a fairly poor set of speakers. Girlfriend is sick, so I am using my headphones to avoid disturbing her, and was watching and editing some of my videos... and, yeah, I need to balance my audio better.

    I'll see what I can do to sort that out in my next batch of videos, which is coming soon.

    Right, nothing I can do makes what i recorded sound like anything but complete crap. Frankly EVERYTHING I've recorded recently has been very poorly balanced, with the game audio all but drowning out my voice. I just never noticed because my speaker setup is, apparently, cheap jack... stuff?

    I've uploaded a new test with, hopefully, a better audio balance here. If everyone wouldn't mind having a listen, and tell me if I got it better, and if not what needs fixing.
