Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 48 : Aquaculture

I’m taking some time to recover from my brutal experiences at the hands of the goblin village, and what could be a better way to recuperate than to do a spot of fishing down by the river?

Mods Encountered

Aquaculture by Shadowclaimer and Rebel Keithy : Aquaculture is a solid little mod that adds a lot of variety to Minecraft’s fishing system. It’s worth mentioning that while I only found fairly basic catches today, there are some rather rarer […]

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 47

After spending the night in the Taiga’s tower, my gear is far too beaten up to risk confronting the goblins again, so I carry on looping around to home again.

Dungeon Pack : I think Dungeon Pack was the source of the Castle of Disappointment. It was probably the victim of some bad timing, in as much as it had only just generated when I arrived, so it had not had a night-time period that would have […]

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 46 : Taigore Trumps Taiga Troubles

Returning from a brief hiatus, I am filled with the desire to expand my horizons. Packing my best sword, I head off into the Taiga west of my home. Until now, I’ve only explored the edges, while looking for bees, and setting up some hives. What other mysteries must it hold?

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 45 : Thaumcraft : Goggles of Revealing and Vis Nodes

Gathering my ingredients, and calling forth the power of Vis, I succeed in creating some rather snazzy headgear.

I then go on a quick tour of my local nodes, examining common, pure, and unstable varieties. I don’t know any of any dark nodes in my world, which is probably a Good Thing.

Note: I have some medical stuff that happens on a three month cycle, and I’m right at the end of that, with treatment due this Thursday. I’ve been […]

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 44 : Thaumcraft Infusion Altars

Back to Thaumcraft for a bit. I’ve finally unlocked the Goggles of Revealing research, but there’s a few things I need to make first.

While a Crucible is excellent for making basic Thaumcraft items, for most things you also need an infusion altar, which draws the aspects in from any nearby crucible or storage device.

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 43 : Liquid Assets.

A bit of a jumbled mix of things I needed to get done today. I have certain rules about how I do this Let’s Play. One is that I don’t use any cheats, or give myself free stuff. I don’t feel you really come to understand a mod if you just magic all the parts or ingredients into existence.

But the rule that sometimes causes episodes like this is that I can’t do something when I’m not recording, unless I’ve […]

Ark’s Magical Modded Minecraft Misadventure 42 : Railcraft Iron Tanks

My oil drilling has been a splendid success, but it has left me with the problem of where to store it all. Buildcraft tanks are excellent for moderate amounts of liquids, but for massive storage, the best way is to go with some variety of multiblock tank, and I’m going to be using Railcraft’s Iron Tanks for that purpose

Railcraft by CovertJaguar : The first appearance for Railcraft! There are quite a lot of other mods which […]
