BiblioCraft Update Progress

Greetings! I wanted to share a little progress update on the BiblioCraft update. I finished my semester of college and I am off until the end of August, so I finally have some time I can invest into BiblioCraft.

I’ve already made significant progress on rewriting large portions of the mod and have ported over a a number of things that I don’t think need to be rewritten. I have all the items in game and most of the them are working. The Atlas still has lots of issues to work out, but hopefully none of those issues will be too difficult. I still have to get the different 3d items rendering properly. I’ve got the compass partly working, but I am still getting a grasp on working with rendering.

I have the bookcase and the shelf in game and fully functional as well. I am getting ready to start adding blocks back in soon. I’ve rewritten about 2/3 of the back-end stuff for the blocks and next I plan to start rewriting the primary block classes. Rewriting all this stuff is taking a good bit of time, but it will make updating and adding new blocks in the future much easier from my end and it significantly cleans up my code base.

There is still lots of stuff to do but I seem to be progressing at a good rate I think. I’ll plan to tweet out some screenshots as I make progress too and have more things I can show. If I run into some bigger issues on the more complicated blocks, I am considering the idea of maybe releasing a BiblioCraft lite version with some of the basic blocks that I get working. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds on that one. I am pretty anxious myself to have a playable 1.8.x version of BiblioCraft. I still haven’t even really played Minecraft 1.8.x or 1.9.x. I am still playing on Minecraft 1.7.10.

After I finish updating to 1.8.9 then I plan to take a look at updating to 1.9.x. I don’t really have any idea how big of an update that will be, but I don’t expect it to be anything like the update to 1.8.x.  I likely won’t add any new features until I get BiblioCraft up to to Minecraft 1.9.x and get all the features we had in the 1.7.10 version working again.

Hopefully that helps give you an idea of where I am at with the update and all that. I’ll leave you with a screenshot I took inside Minecraft 1.8.9 with most of what I have working shown. Enjoy! :)

    Does that mean that this will work for just 1.8 as well? Or does it have to be 1.8.X? Because I REALLY want to be able to use the printing press in my game…


    I am open to releasing a version for 1.8, but it all depends on how much changed from 1.8 to 1.8.9 and if the same things that I need exist in both versions. So I can’t really say for sure yet if there will be a 1.8 version other than 1.8.9. If it is easy enough, I will release a 1.8 version.



    Awesome!!! ^-^ Quite possibly the best news I’ve heard all day. ^-^



    I made an account just to tell you have awsome your mod is! :) And I can’t wait until 1.8.9 is done! Keep up the good work!



    I created an account so I could reply as well,this mod is one of my favorites and I just have to tell you I’m so glad you’ve made it.

    I have thaumcraft 5 and antique atlas mod for 1.8.9 minecraft,and as much fun as they are I’ve missed your mod,Bookshelves are perfect for the medievil magic feel thaumcraft offers and antique atlas give it the same “old time” feel.But your mod steps it up and makes it better,whether you want “modern day” or  “long ago” your mod is perfect.

    I personally think that books,and bookshelves are an ingenious idea in minecraft,I can imagine the perfect game experience being a permanent world with self wrote books lining the shelves of myself and other players in the ultimate multiplayer game.If you were selling this mod I would buy it,I love it so much.

    Basically,(praising aside)  I would just like to say I appreciate your hardwork in making this work for 1.8.9 and 1.9 minecraft.If you need any kind of help I’d be willing to help.Even if it’s just brainstorming ideas or participating in a poll/servey.

    Everyone asks for the next version, but when is it going to work on Minecraft version 1.10?

    I’d like to follow up with how the heck did this website get a picture from my computer? Further more, a picture I never used for profiles on anything. It took a random photo from my libraries and just slapped it on.
    Dude that is right nex- Do you have any idea that if this was a “Random grab” then that means the chances of a pony porn picture was at least 60% possible?
    You wanna see that?
    No. Fix that.



    Will the mod ever be updated to 1.8? I mean, please keep us updated



    first of all thank you for a great mod and thank you for working on updating it.

    i know what force of will is required to learn another rendering system after learning the pre 1.8 one, even if you know that things have gone for the better, so thank you for it. a small hint, please skip 1.8 and its basic json format and go for the improved json format. much easier for you, and with all these game versions out there, modders should help some game version to die off (starting with 1.8.0 and 1.9.0) by not supporting them.

    take your time and please don’t lose nerves because some guys will post “hurry up” at you.

    personally, i’d prefer if you put out lite edition for 1.9.4 and 1.10.2.
    i’m sure i’m not the only one who wants bookshelves and item shelves and would only disable the nonse… more imaginative stuff you added later.



    You have posted a extremely detail document. I go through all of your article and I actually really like it, I understand your point of view.
