This user "MentalMouse42" prefers to use the enhanced profile.

While I'm not one of the pre-release crowd, I've have been playing heavily since May 2012 (1.2.4), watching the game develop and change over time. Somewhere around 1.7 or so, I started exploring mods.

Currently (early 2019), I'm playing 1.12.2 with a selection of mods featuring Biomes O'Plenty, Quark, Allomancy. and Blood Magic.

Feedback and significant pages[]

Please leave notes for me on my talk page. On the Forums I'm MentalMouse42, on Github I'm just MentalMouse

I also have a sandbox page with various subpages. (I generally welcome assistance with anything in the sandbox).

Portal datapack[]

I refactored Timber Forge's demo code from [here] to make a more flexible datapack providing portals. My Datapack (and its assets pack) are here. It currently has two kinds of portals with placeholder dimensions. Arcadia's portal is two bone blocks on the bottom, two honeycomb blocks on top, and sides of chiseled stone brick, activated with a water bucket. Twilight's portal is a simple loop of polished blackstone, activated by placing a vine. Corners are optional, but if there's nothing there, the portal will show a bit in the gaps.

To add a new dimension:

  1. Copy one of the existing dimensions to a new directory,
  2. search-and-replace the dimension name in the files.
  3. Adjust the materials for the portal recognition (activate_portal, portal_stability) and construction (make_portal)
  4. Adjust the activating tool/block in load, loop, cast, cloud, and activate_portal. Note that if it is a block, it will be sacrificed upon use.
  5. Add lines in the files under data/minecraft/ for its trigger and files for the dimension,
  6. Add a portal texture to the asset pack. Width should be a multiple of 32, length should be a multiple of the width. You will need to pick a number for the custom_model_data.
