Greetings, I’ve just posted version 2.4.6 of BiblioCraft up on the website and on CurseForge. Thanks to Exopteron on GitHub, the networking system has been updated to the newer system and hopefully fixed an exploit. In addition, I expect these changes to make updating BiblioCraft to a future Minecraft version easier. Aside from that, I fixed a bug with the desk bell and display case not making sound on a server.
Head on over to CurseForge or the Downloads page to grab an updated copy of BiblioCraft. Enjoy!
Greetings! Long time no post. I’ve officially released the source code for BiblioCraft v1.12.x and newer. Unfortunately this last year, I just haven’t had the time to try to update BiblioCraft, despite wanting to. So I decided I need to free BiblioCraft out into the world. With that, I still would like to eventually get around to working on it, but now anyone who is keen enough is welcome to come help update it. If anyone submits a pull request on GitHub, I’ll look it over, test it, and push it. Or if anyone is just curious about how I did some of the things I did, it is all out there in the open now.
Find BiblioCraft source code here: https://github.com/Nuchaz/BiblioCraft-Source
I have also put up a BandCamp page so I have a place to share all my music. I personally like Bandcamp better than SoundCloud, so all my future music will go there. So far, there is just a previous song I released and a short soundtrack for a game I made in college called “The Great Extraterrestrial Cook Off”.
Check out my BandCamp page here: https://laughingbuffalo.bandcamp.com/
Speaking of “The Great Extraterrestrial Cook Off”. I decided to release this game for free. Its a top down, 2D cooking game about someone who gets abducted by aliens and must feed them before they eat the player.
Download and play if for free from here: https://nuchaz.itch.io/the-great-extraterrestrial-cook-off
So what’s next? First I plan to build a portfolio website to help show all the different projects I’ve worked on. Then I think the next step in my career is going to be to find a proper job in the games industry. With my free time after that I would like to try to spend more time writing and recording music this next year and maybe start a new game project of my own. Somewhere in there between all that and my other hobbies hopefully I can find a little time here and there to mess with BiblioCraft.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year Everyone!
I just released an update for BiblioCraft that fixes a few more crashes. Crashes that occurred with the clipboard, fancy sign, tape measure, and a few other things. I also fixed the reading glasses so they display the enchantments on books when looking at a bookcase. The reading enchantment now also works correctly when applied to a helmet.
Head on over to the downloads page or curseforge to grab a copy. Enjoy!
I just released an update for BiblioCraft. There are about half a dozen crashes I was able to fix. A lot of these are issues that I have been stuck on for the past so many months. I was able to get a real good roll lately and get a lot of the major issues fixed. I’ve also added one new feature, fancy signs will now retain their data when broken and placed back down. Now we can easily move our signs around without having to redo them.
I’ve only updated Minecraft 1.12.2 so far but I may back-port the crash fixes to a couple previous version here in the near future. Most likely I will only worry about bug fixes for Minecraft v1.7.10 and v1.10.2 as those are the most popular versions aside from Minecraft 1.12.2. Sometime this summer I would like to do a feature update and add a couple of things that have been on my mind for quite awhile. With new features, my focus will be only on 1.12.2 and forward.
Anyway, head on over to the downloads page or on over to curseforge to grab the newest version. Enjoy!
I just released an update for BiblioCraft that covers Minecraft version 1.10.2, 1.11.2, and 1.12.0. This update fixes a dupe bug with the fancy workbench that really needed to be addressed. I also tried to fix a couple crashes that came up. I say tried because I wasn’t able to personally reproduce the crashes, but I made some changes in code that I think might catch the crashes based on the error reports I had read. In addition I updated the scaling of the BiblioCraft items which were scaled way too big. I also fixed a couple recipes, the printing press and map frames, in the version for Minecraft v1.12.0 which had gotten messed up when I updated to the new system.
Anyway, head on over to the downloads page or curseforge to grab a copy of the newest BiblioCraft. Enjoy!
I just released a new version of BiblioCraft for Minecraft 1.12.0. This version fixes the framing sheet recipe which wasn’t working correctly in the previous version and most importantly updates to work on the latest forge. It was announced that tomorrow, June 28th, the recommended build of forge will come out and this version of BiblioCraft should be compatible with that version, as well as the current newest version of forge at the time of this writing. There were some breaking changes between this version of forge and the version of forge I used for BiblioCraft v2.4.1 so expect crashes if you mismatch and older version of forge or older BiblioCraft versions with the newer stuff.
Anyway, head on over to the downloads page to grab a copy, or head over to Curseforge to grab a copy if you prefer and as always, Enjoy!
I just updated BiblioCraft for Minecraft v1.12.0 and fixed a couple of bugs that game up. I fixed a crash with the reading glasses and I added back the enchanted atlas recipe. I still plan to readd the enchanted atlas as a json based recipe in the near future, but I hardcoded it back in for now.
I just released an update for BiblioCraft for Minecraft v1.12.0. This is pretty much a straight port from the previous version. This is more of a beta than previous releases though since it is missing one recipe, the recipe to turn an atlas into an enchanted atlas for the death compass. I also expect this build of BiblioCraft to break in future version of forge for Minecraft v1.12.0, so that is something to be aware of as you update forge and such at this early junction in Minecraft v1.12.x modding.
Minecraft 1.12 introduced a new recipe system which now uses json files that can easily be edited by anyone. From what I understand, Minecraft v1.13 will introduce data-packs which are essentially resource packs that support a bunch more types of thing, such as recipes. So this was the first big step toward that and all the recipes in BiblioCraft are now in the new json format. Forge is still in the process of making back-end changes to better support all this new stuff. Some of the changes proposed in forge are expected to break current compatibility, so that is why I expect some things to break in the future. But as that happens I plan to try to stay on top of updating to support forge as it goes through changes.
Anyway, head on over to the download pages to grab the newest version of BiblioCraft. If you have any comments, questions, or issues, feel free to post on the website, the official minecraft forum, or create an issue on github. For bugs and stuff, creating an issue on github is most preferred. As always, enjoy!
This should fix a rendering crash a number of folks are having. Hopefully this update takes care of it. I also tweaked the reading enchantment stats a little.
Head over to the downloads page to grab a copy. Enjoy!
BiblioWoods is back! I decided to take advantage of some of the new architechure I built into the newest versions of BiblioCraft and create some BiblioWoods addons. Only this time, I don’t need to create and include any hand made textures, I am just reading the textures from the supported mods. In this case, I have updated BiblioWoods for Biomes O’ Plenty, Forestry, and Natura. I am open to suggestions on other popular mods that add woods that people would like to see BiblioWoods packages for. Since you can still achieve the same effect with the paneler block, the addons are just adding recipes and creative tabs. I think people might like how I organized the creative tabs for the BiblioWoods. All the wood types are grouped together, instead of block types.
BiblioCraft has been updated for Minecraft versions 1.9.4, 1.10.2 and 1.11.2 with a few important bug fixes as well as the back end architechure (at least in BiblioCraft v2.3.1 for MC 1.11.2) to support BiblioWoods. There is a bad crash if you try to craft an Atlas on a server that has been fixed. I also fixed Tables not connecting in the newest version for Minecraft v1.11.2. I made an adjustment to the plumb line y coord, it should be correct now and I also tried to fix a rendering crash that has been happening.
Head on over to the downloads page to grab the new BiblioCraft and head over to BiblioWoods addon page to grab the new BiblioWoods. You can also find all this stuff on CurseForge as well. If you have any comments, questions, or issues feel free to speak out here in the comments, on the minecraft forum, or on my github. Enjoy!
