Downloads: http://micdoodle8.com/mods/galacticraft/downloads Big thanks to @radfast for writing the release notes (and all the work he's put into developing GC3)! GALACTICRAFT 3 RELEASE NOTES ============================ GC3 is for Minecraft 1.7.2 with Forge version 10.12.2.1147 or later. This is a BETA release. There will be some bugs. There will be some incompatibility with other mods. This is not the final version of GC3. There will be even more things added as time goes on, plus enhancements to what is already here. For example, you'll have noticed there is no new mob in the Asteroids dimension, for now... So we recommend: don't make large builds in the Asteroids dimension just yet, as you might be wanting to delete+regenerate that dimension in a future updated version of GC3. WHAT'S NEW IN GC3 ================= Asteroids Dimension: - Asteroids floating in space with secrets to be discovered... - Moving small asteroids - New ores - Awesome Tier 3 rocket to reach the asteroids dimension Improvements to existing dimensions: Space stations: - Can now spin! - Freefall motion for players and mobs - Redesigned sun Mars: - Beautiful new sky - Added sub-surface ice (but it's fairly rare) - Desh Ore is easier to find Moon: - redesigned footprints Redesigned Celestial Selection screen: - Also used as a Galacticraft Map - Planets now have a temperature - Planets now have an atmospheric composition New Thermal Padding extra armor: - Will be needed on very cold or very hot planets - Temperature indicator on the HUD Improved Space Race competitive play: - Design your own team flag for the Space Race New Blocks: Walkways - build routes around your base with a space look - Aluminum Wire and Oxygen Pipes can be attached to the underside of walkways Spin Thrusters - these are used to make "something" spin... - right-click with a wrench to point the spin in the other direction Arc Lamp - a very bright lamp to light up those dark space dimensions - directional - right-click with a wrench to change the direction - has an effect on mobs... New Machines: Short-range Telepad - teleport between nearby pads Methane Synthesizer - manufacture methane from coal (or carbon dioxide) + hydrogen - can be made into rocket fuel Gas Liquefier - makes methane into rocket fuel you can use - can also make liquid versions of other gases - uses for the other gases will come in future... Electric Arc Furnace - a Tier 2 version of the Electric Furnace - faster; and double production amount for all metal ingots Energy Storage Cluster - a Tier 2 version of the Energy Storage Module New Items: Grappling hook - to grab onto nearby asteroids Canisters of various gases Titanium tools - have an attractive quality Titanium armor - extra protection from collision and fall damage New Energy Systems: Beam Emitters and Beam Receivers can transfer energy without wires GC energy system re-worked and re-balanced New energy unit: gJ - that's Galacticraft Joules not GigaJoules Now with 2 tiers of energy (think of it as like 120V and 240V) Tier 2 machines get a speed buff if powered with Tier 2 energy Electric Ingot Compressor gets same speed buff as a Tier 2 machine Compatibility: Compatible with BuildCraft and IndustrialCraft2 [ BuildCraft 6.0.16 IC2 version 126.96.36.1993-experimental ] Energy readout in MJ or EU options - /gcenergyunits command GC3 wiring respects IC2 voltage levels (LV, MV, HV, EV) IC2 batteries can be used in Galacticraft machines, and vice versa Improved rocket graphics: Different exhausts for different rocket tiers Lots of smoke prior to launch Player model stays inside the rocket if you tilt it No clipping of items held by a player in a rocket Gameplay improvements: Shift-click oxygen gear, oxygen tanks and other GC items into inventory slots Shift-click works in all machines Space dimensions - where you first land becomes a spawn point if you die Space dimensions - the player can breathe when inside a rocket or lander You cannot exit a rocket using 'Shift' after it has launched You cannot exit a lander using 'Shift' until it has properly landed Using Launch Controllers you can fly in a rocket between two pads in the same dim Creative mode Galacticraft tabs reorganized into 2 tabs All machines and Solar Panels are now 'Enabled' by default when first placed Minor issues fixed: Mars landing balloon stays properly where it landed NASA workbench will not 'forget' schematics when the player dies In NEI, the HUD (block identifier) should be completely accurate now Pick-block (in Creative mode) should give the correct block for everything Launch Controller settings work correctly All machines have the same electrical input color (green) /dimensiontp command with no player name teleports yourself Some rendering issues with oxygen tanks fixed Some rendering issues with Galacticraft fluids fixed Multiblock structures - the 'invisible blocks' have hardness like the main block Oxygen bubbles made by Oxygen Distributors are more stable Various minor fixes to tooltips and item names Slimelings and sludgelings now cannot drown Space Station dimensions have the 'Space' biome type Issues with Parachest GUI slots and 'Inventory' label position fixed Parachests render as parachests in player inventory and in NEI Translations: Most text in Galacticraft is now translateable Many languages updated - thanks to our dedicated translaters Added: Thai translation CREDITS ======= Mod authors: micdoodle8, radfast, fishtaco567 GUI textures and concepts: SpaceViking Music: Jackson Cordes Translations: Adaptivity, Ezer'Arch, hunator, Linyor, sb023612, SteveMCCommander and everyone else who has contributed at the Github or on the forum. KNOWN ISSUES (will be fixed real soon) ============ Rockets are missing their sounds You will not be able to get to other player's Space Stations without external teleport mods/plugins Galacticraft item tooltips do not show in the Galacticraft blue 'rarity' color Rotating Space Stations - blocks not connected to the space station will rotate too Sealed IC2 cables and AE cable not craftable If BuildCraft is loaded, Galacticraft wires may keep transmitting energy even if broken BuildCraft Kinesis pipes can transmit power into all sides of Galacticraft machines Footprints on the moon sometimes hang off the edge of the block they are on Gas Liquefier accesses planet's atmosphere even inside a sealed space Methane Synthesizer fills with free hydrogen, as we have no hydrogen maker yet Water Electolyzer machine is not craftable and has no function currently INSTALLATION NOTES ================== GC3 needs Forge version 10.12.2.1147 for Minecraft 1.7.2. Make sure to use the correct version of Forge. Get it here: http://files.minecraftforge.net/ After installing Forge and checking that the launcher launches with version 1147, you will need to put micdoodlecore, galacticraftcore and galacticraftplanets in your /mods folder. Make sure to have the same version for each one. Like all Minecraft 1.7.2 mods, the blocks and items in GC3 do not have fixed ID numbers, instead each is given an ID when the world is created. ID conflicts should be a thing of the past... UPDATING MAPS FROM GC2 TO GC3 ============================= Updating existing maps from Minecraft 1.6.4 to 1.7.2 is normally possible, so long as you have 1.7.2 versions of all the mods used. IMPORTANT: if updating from 1.6.4 make sure to have played + saved the map in Galacticraft version 188.8.131.521 or later, before updating the map to 1.7.2. Best is to use the latest Galacticraft 1.6.4 version 184.108.40.2061 prior to update. Get it here: http://ci.micdoodle8.com/job/Galacticraft/1091/ Recommended steps for a Single Player update: 1) Make sure Forge and your modpack are installed in Minecraft 1.7.2 and working correctly - test that you can create a new world OK. 2) In Minecraft 1.7.2, start Single Player, load your old map 3) Forge will warn that it is a 1.6.4 map and ask if you want to proceed. Click 'Yes'. Forge will make a backup of the old map in a .zip file. 4) Forge will warn about some items not being present and being deleted from the world - ForgeMicroblocks items and maybe more. That shouldn't affect any Galacticraft blocks or items. It might affect other mods if you are updating other mods to 1.7.2 at the same time. Tips for a successful update: * If you had an Electric Furnace or an Energy Storage Module in your 1.6.4 map with items inside of it, those items will drop out of it the first time it loads in 1.7.2. So empty your furnaces and energy storage before updating the map. * If you had nothing built on Mars, after the update we recommend deleting the whole Mars dimension (DIM-29) and allowing it to regenerate in GC3, so you get the benefit of the easier to find Desh Ore.
