    What Ezer'Arch said ^^^^^^^^.

    I expect that within 1-2 weeks after the 1.7.2 beta being released, there will be 1.7.2 and 1.7.10 versions of Galacticraft in parallel going forward.

    The main difficulty is not compatibility with Minecraft 1.7.10 (we are already pretty much there with that) but compatibility with the 1.7.10 versions of other mods. Unfortunately one of the major mods which Galacticraft interacts with, that's IndustrialCraft2, changed how its API works between 1.7.2 and 1.7.10. Also 1.7.10 means Mekanism compatibility. I think guys who want to use Galacticraft in a 1.7.10 modpack will want to see it compatible with IC2 and Mekanism...

    Ya what you stated is very true, take your time with it. I was just being impatience. What I'll probably do now is something I've been wanting to do for a while and that is do a "Vanilla Galacticraft" run. Or just bug-test until a stable build is released.

    I changed the topic title to reflect the current situation, that is, Galacticraft 3 Beta is out.

    http://micdoodle8.com/mods/galacticraft/downloads

    Keep in mind this is BETA, NOT STABLE. Prefer not to use it on your main worlds for now; make backups/copies or new worlds.

    Just passing the word along: for those that haven't seen it, Micdoodle8 asked that we don't post YouTube videos of GC3 until a more complete/stable build is release. Glad he said something because I was planning on it.

    So I would like to report that the beta works fine with my other 34 mods, excpet I had one crash when I had some solar panels down, and when I entered the asteroid dimension it failed to find an asteroid to land on. (Creative mode helped though). So for a beta it's a pretty well working one.
    I have a question though (bear in mind that I never used galacticraft before): So will I have to start a new world for the ores this mod comes with to spawn or is there a method to make them spawn in an existing world?

    As with most (if not all) mods that affect/alter world generation, your existing world will generate the ores just fine, but they will only generate in new chunks that you haven't yet been to.

    Post the crash report please, it will help me to fix it. The full report so I can see which version numbers of each mod you are using.

    I think it was this one, but it might not even be galacticraft that caused the crash because I use a couple of mods that are still in beta.

    That crash report is connected with something trying to generate a structure during world gen as you moved around the map causing new chunks to be generated. A structure is a village, a hut, a Nether fortress, an abandoned mineshaft or some similar map feature with a built design. It seems to be in a Flat world. It could be any of the mods crashing this, could be vanilla Minecraft 1.7.2 even.

    There is no information about which mod is causing the issue. I'm not saying it's not Galacticraft, it could be, but you have 10+ mods in there which could be the cause. I would start by looking at all the ones which can build structures. Galacticraft can build structures but only on the Moon, so if you weren't on the Moon when this happened, it probably wasn't Galacticraft.

    Don't the "Celestial Dungeons of Unlocking Tiered Stuff-ies" count also?

    Ok, then I'm pretty sure now that it wasn't Galacticraft. I made a flat world just to check it out in creative like I usually do with most of the newly installed mods and I have seen graveyards generating in a way that they were intersecting each other. So it must have beeen the Grave stones mod, which I think isn't in beta but that doesn't mean anything. Anyway thanks for the info.

    Alien Villager villages on the Moon are 'structures'. Dungeons are not structures, they are made a different way.

    Maybe we will add more structures in future for Mars, Asteroids etc (no promise, no current plans) but for now it's only the villages.
