  1. Your Name: Fang Langford - Ingenieur_13 Description of Issue: We've all experienced this: you want to craft something advanced on the Infinity Evolved (Expert Mode) server. You consult the recipe listed by the Not Enough Items (NEI) mod. All the ingredients go into the crafting matrix and no output appears. Or even more tantalizingly, the expected output flashes in the expected place for an instant. After consulting the internet, or other sources, an 'expert' recipe is found and it works! Or it doesn't. I've come up with a work-around of my own. (A simple, but not very easy or convenient, solution.) I will disconnect, quit out of Minecraft, close that instance, open Twitch and use the official Feed the Beast (FtB) Launcher. I wait for Minecraft Forge to run its course, select Craftersland, and negotiate the sign-in and activate VIP features processes. Next, I consult NEI through my inventory Graphical User Interface (GUI). Usually, I will even place the ingredients into a Crafting Station (from Tinkers' Construct) because it doesn't drop the items. And then I reverse the logout-login process. Once back, I open the Crafting Station GUI and lo, the output is ready. Onward to play. But not yesterday. I was crafting the Storage Drawers Controller Slave. The NEI recipe did show the output for but the briefest of instants, but no luck. Off to Twitch then. Ah! The Gold Ingot is replaced by a Gold Chipset. Back on Craftersland, I craft an Assembly Table and a number of Lasers as well and the Lead Fluxducts I need to connect them to my power grid. Many minutes later (It's not a very powerful grid.), I replace the Gold Ingot in the Crafting Station and...Nothing. Not even the briefest flicker. Somewhat bothered by this, I laboriously head back to Twitch again. As expected, the components await me in the Crafting Station. And there is the output I desired. No flicker, not tantalizing glimpse... I take it into my inventory and there it stays (I'll tell you the story of things disappearing and reappearing from my Hot Bar later.) So it's back to the Craftersland launcher. (Did I mention my preference? It plays well with the NEI heads-up display.) There it is; still in my inventory. Play resumes in earnest. A good fifteens minutes jumping back and forth just to verify and craft a recipe for a simple item. Except now I have to switch launchers simply to do the actual crafting for certain recipes too. A little too much work, I dare say. For my own edification, prior to this incident, I've been digging around in both my Twitch and Craftersland installations attempting to identify and transplant the official recipes as displayed in the Twitch Instance. No such luck. Add to that that I actually had to be logged into the other instance to even craft the recipe at all. This goes a little farther than an inconvenience with the Craftersland Launcher, but presents an exception challenge, especially to players who don't have two instances of Minecraft FtB Infinity Evolved, Expert Mode installed in their computers. I'm not asking for a time-consuming revamp of the Craftersland Launcher; I'm sure that will take place eventually; I have only the highest esteem for the operators and staff of Craftersland. As an interim solution though, could someone post a step-by-step guide (and a link to the files) to implant the appropriate recipes into NEI? If I'm not mistaken this was done for the Bottomless Pouch, the Travelling Trunk, and the Book Binder. If it's not too much trouble I would like something like that. b^.^d Thanks so much for taking the time to read this whole sad story! Have a great day!

  2. In-Game Nickname: TOMMAS026175 and SharkPlatinum Time and date: 2018-11-16_7.10.00 Description of what happened: Suddenly I died! /back and I die again! "What is going on?" I wonder. /back again and I find TOMMAS026175 and SharkPlatinum looting my grave. And then they kill me again. This time when I /back, they begin throwing my inventory at me...but not all of it. I lost a fair amount of raw materials and a Carpenters' Hammer in the scramble to hop around and collect items that 'missed' me. Is there a way to flag yourself as a non-combatant? I never engage in PVP and being violently mugged can be quite catastrophic. (And I don't want and wouldn't pay for /god.) Screenshots or Proof: https://imgur.com/a/nHCmaKX List of eyewitnesses: The only ones present, other than me, were TOMMAS026175 and SharkPlatinum. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. Fang le Ingénieur
  3. Account Name: Ingenieur_13 Rank: Newly Spawned or Premium, depending where you look. ^•^Requested Configuration Change: in the Carpenters' Blocks Configuration File, set the flag "Routable Fluids"=true (Add the node of the commands if you know it so they are easier to add.) # When enabled, unobstructed stationary fluid adjacent to block will render in the block space. B:"Routable Fluids"=false Reason for Request: For example: if I create a ship, such as the Black Pearl (which I've been preparing for for years), I will be able to put it in water without the unsightly flowing water cubes surrounding the hull below the waterline. Something like this: https://imgur.com/a/EyrAEKp I realize this is a really big favor. I can upgrade to Sponsor+ if that will make it happen. b^•^d Sincerely, Fang le Ingénieur p.s.

  4. Hello wonderful community! I've spent a fair part of this night trying to craft some Transfer Node (Item)s and Magnum Torches. After finally assembling all the required components according to the diagram in Not Enough Items...nothing (NEI). It's blank. I review the recipes carefully; I make sure everything is in the appropriate positions; I even used the "?" feature of NEI to redo each recipe and... It won't craft. Am I doing something wrong? I've searched our community forum and found nothing, not even on the banned / restricted item lists. I also took a swing at the internet in general, but there was hardly mention of the Expert recipes, much less how I'm deviating from them. Can someone offer a little tutelage for me? Perhaps a link I can follow to sort this out? Anything? Crafting is one of the things I value most in Minecraft (aside from sculpting). ^.^ Your Friend, Fang le Ingénieur
  5. Okay, here's a list of all that I have found (by x:, z:) -5130, 3575 -4850, 3000 -4800, 2060 -4700, 2430 -4575. 2100 -4330, -3250 -4200, 4000 -3200, 2900 -3600, 3400 -2350, 4625 -700, 4325 -150, 1776 200, 4325 1100, 4550 1900, -2250 Thanks guys for looking into this. I was originally worried the server was having problems; I'm glad it all worked out. Sincerely Yours, Fang le Ingénieur
  6. Just an update. I found the despoiled volcano I wanted to call home. It's y: 122 high. Because of the limits on an Ender Quarry, this alleged player would have had to set up his fence or markers at least at y: 117 or higher in order to claim the entire volcano like this. Furthermore, unlike an Ender Quarry, this 'dirtification' only goes down to y: 58. An Ender Quarry processes it's territory one column at a time, all the way to bedrock, before moving to the next one. It wouldn't stop at y: 58 every time. (At least not as far as I've researched it; I've yet to get an Ender Quarry and test it out on the server.) Another curiosity is this: https://imgur.com/a/pVJKWDU I hadn't noticed it originally, but the transformation also included the flowing LAva blocks. I hadn't considered that; I only observed leaf blocks and water blocks being converted. (If there turns out to be any way to rollback these chunks, I'd surely relish a true supervillain-style volcano base.) Yours in Service, Fang le Ingénieur
  7. I come before you today with a potentially alarming message. The Infinity Evolved server is being overtaken by dirt! I first noticed it when I was scouting for villages to trade with and potential sites for a base move. Take a look at this: https://imgur.com/a/OfQoGTT This turns out to be a triple manifestation. They are all square and cover at least 196 chunks. Of special note: near the top, center, an entire village has been converted to dirt. Or here: http://i.imgur.com/a/GIe5Di4 It's a little inspiring seeing something like this Skystone fall, turned into dirt. Or this: http://i.imgur.com/a/Ad2PzdK A beautiful, awe-inspiring tree, as converted entirely to dirt. I've examined several examples; this conversion includes leafs, water, other non-solid blocks, and everything else except mobs. This is what concerns me, personally, the most: http://i.imgur.com/a/HxG7nGi This incursion is at the foot of my base (that tower in the background). Scant chunks away and it would have destroyed my underground stores. (Notice too, how indiscriminate this effect is, cutting a mushroom clearly in half.) What has me coming to you is this: http://i.imgur.com/a/cEuhUub Rigg has clearly adopted this village for his base, yet here the dirt has converted exactly half of the southern wall of it. See for yourself: "t/ spawn hub" (make sure to match the capitalization). Will it take an event actually hitting someone's base to prompt action? Now, I know what a number of you are thinking (and have voiced): this is the product of a mining machine poorly placed by a player. Well, I think the evidence is to the contrary. I've seen mountains cleaved in twain. A volcano I was seriously considering for my new base, for its altitude, was completely converted. The only machine I could find in Feed the Beast Infinity Evolved that replaces what it mines with dirt is the Ender Quarry, but upon research I discovered that it only mines 5 blocks about the boundaries set for it. This would mean this player was setting up his Ender Quarry in the sky, ringing more than 150 chunks in fencing or markers, with both the augments for pumping and speed. As long as this would take, even with the speed-up, would make it hard to go unnoticed for so long. So my supposition is that this is a glitch in the server (or a troll who's maniacal about following chunk borders). I haven't been able to find any other examples on the web, or repairs, so I'm stumpt. Yours in Server Community, Fang "le Ingénieur"
  8. I'm not sure where to post this, so I'll put it here. Feel free to move it to the appropriate forum! Let me preface this by saying the overlap in question is not a physical matter of one obscuring the other; I know very well how to reposition the WAILA display. I like having the WAILA information on 'constant display'; it aids my play-style quite a bit and I'm not really willing to disable or toggle it. My problem is that there's a tooltip at the top of the screen (see upper center of picture for an example) which duplicates the information WAILA provides (but only a fraction of it). With both visible, this eats up a lot of my screen real estate and is redundant. So my question is "How do I disable this feature?" I'd even settle for "What mod or Vanilla setting affects this?" (Thus I might even be able to adjust it's position to off-screen.) Thanks in Advance, for Your Time and Attention, Fang
  9. Your Name: Ingenieur_13 Item Name + Amount: One each: Energized Dark Helm, Energized Dark Plate, Energized Dark Leggings, Energized Dark Boots (Even though I lost two sets, I only need one refunded.) Coordinates: x: -5302, y: 152, z: 3430 Description of Issue: I set up an Ender IO Basic Capacitor Bank (with a Survivalist Generator for power) to charge some Dark Steel Armour I'd made (and Energized with Vibrant Crystals). The first time each item (Plate, Leggings, Helm, and Boots) received a small charge because I was moving them from slot to slot, learning how the interface worked. One time my connection 'timed out' and when I got back on, they were no longer in the Bank. Having dealt with numerous occasions of inventory glitch high-jinks, I thought they were simply invisible. So I took my pickaxe and broke the Bank [pun intended]. When I re-placed the Capacitor Bank in the same space, they had returned. I put them on to see how the side inventory slots worked on the GUI for the Bank. Unexpectedly, when I right-clicked them, they went from there into my regular inventory. So I expected them to return to the side armour inventory when I right-clicked them in my inventory. They did not.... They vanished. I assumed they were invisible again and repeated the above; no luck. I relogged; no change. I tried both together, nada. To check if the 'right-click something into a supposed empty space' trick worked (that's how I get disappearances in my inventory to reappear), I made a second set of Energized Dark Armour and attempted to 'click and move' a piece to an 'invisible' item's location (it works with inventory glitches), it too vanished. Desperate, I tried right-clicking another; failure. So I repeated the relog and redeploy tactic, only to be disappointed again. TLDR; Twice I've made the this armour and 'anviled' in the crystals, but both times parts vanish at the instant they should appear in the Basic Capacitor Bank.

  10. In-Game Nickname: Oozoozami Time and Date: 2018-09-23 18:00:56 Description of What Happened: While I was visiting Spawn for a quick purchase, I was ambushed by Oozoozami who cast Paralyze on me. While I worked on screen capturing what was happened I realized they were spamming chat with, "Everyone come to spawn for freee keys!" I also saw they were hounding other spawn visitors, though I was struggling to capture screens of this. I also missed getting a screenshot of who else was there; sorry. Screenshots or Proof: https://imgur.com/72horNo https://imgur.com/a/alhCHvA https://imgur.com/GEcb0e5 List of eyewitnesses: I was a little too clumsy to screenshot them and Timed Out before I could /list them. Sorry. I'm Ingenieur_13 in game on the Infinity Evolved Expert Servers. ^.^d
  11. In case you were wondering about my full hot bar; I teleported to a mineshaft I had 'sethome'd, to harvest some wood for tools (and I couldn't resist a little fence-post collection while I was there). The first tool I made was the axe so I could get more wood down there; thus it's almost spent. I came /back to my deathpoint and began to tunnel upward in a 3x3 staircase (per habit); from y: 2 to surface (around 70, I think) generated all that cobblestone (and the gravel, which nearly strangled me). And who can mine in the dark? So I'm toting around a charcoal-making slab furnace too.) The Hammer I'm after and I'd been using to gather resources was brilliant: moss, fully redstoned, silky gem, paper plates, steel head, and pink slime handle...difficult to replace (even though reachable in early game). Thanks again! ^.^d Fang
  12. Your Name: Legal? Fang Danger Langford. (Changed it last month.) Forum? Ingénieur. In-Game? Ingenieur_13.Coordinates: When it happened? Where I died? X: -316 Z: -246 Y: 3, in Mining World [sp]Time/Date (When everything was fine): Server Timestamp: 1:40:00 PM 9/3/18 (a little earlier is okay, if it's easier.)Description of Issue: I touched some flowing lava and caught fire. I backed off, still ablaze, struggling to type "/heal", dying but for a typo. When I went '/back', my grave was nowhere to be found. To make sure, I tunneled all the way from bedrock to open air and found nothing.Screenshot: (I'm not sure how much this will help, but....) [Edit]: Replaced image I had posted before I got the hang of Imagr. Thank you very much for your kind attentions, Fang Langford (Danger is my middle name, check my DL ^.^) [Edit: p. s. Should I have mentioned this was on the Infinity Evolved - Expert server?]
  13. Account Name: Ingénieur: Town Name / Character Name: Dwœmer / Ingenieur_13 Coordinates: x = -5284 to -5285; y = 2 to 3; z = -1664 (The sign is at x = -5288; y = 3; z = -1672 for reference, I can fix that myself) Time/Date: 2018-06-16 20:30:00 is Yesterday, at 8:30 p.m. to rollback to. Description of Issue: A large chest (the bottom one) and a half (the bottom half of the top one) went empty while I was away (possibly during a restart) and since the top half of the the top chest was exactly the way I recognize it, and a nearby sign went blank, I suspect a system glitch got them. Screenshots: I'm sorry I haven't been tracking my loot that way... Sincerely Yours, Fang Langford, Ingénieur
