…and an underground view.
Ep. 37 - Long Shadow
I this video I build a builder, futz about, and learn the wrong lesson from a world crash.
1.2.5 - Again, Uneven
BuildCraft has updated to support 1.2.5, with most updates being backend improvements. It also no longer requires ModLoaderMP, which is neat. Supposedly the latest Forge versions now provide whatever API thingies (highly technical programming term!) that BuildCraft needed from ModLoaderMP.
However, RedPower and Industrialcraft are still on 1.2.4, and also still require ModLoaderMP.
As for me, still busy with real life issues, but should be able to step up the pace near the end of the month.
Ep. 36 - Un peu de repos
In this video I re-familiarize myself with my world, ramble about plans, and talk about PAX.
1.2.3 Updates Complete!
Note: Both of these require Forge 18.104.22.168, available here. This is not the latest version of Forge, but the most recent version breaks some things in both mods.
As for me, I’ll have at least one video out by the weekend and hopefully be back on a more normal schedule next week.
1.2.3 Mod Update Roundup
Been busy traveling, so I haven’t been able to stay on top of things. So here’s a roundup of progress toward full 1.2.3 mod compatibility.
Buildcraft & Forge
As mentioned in a previous post, Buildcraft has been putting out pre-releases prior to an official 1.2.3 release. They are available in the newspost here, and require the 1.2.3 version which can be obtained from the usual place.
In addition to co-leading the Buildcraft team, it looks like SirSengir has also been hard at work getting Forestry ready. There are new versions (22.214.171.124) available for both versions of the latest Buildcraft pre-releases.
No updates from Krapht. He’s probably busy with the work on Buildcraft.
No news. Updates in DaStormbringer’s thread were pretty sparse prior to the 1.2.3 update from Mojang, and he hasn’t been heard from since. Hopefully he comes back or someone else at least takes over to maintain compatibility.
Nothing released yet, but Alblaka confirmed today that he’s beginning work today and has plenty of free time ahead.
Eloraam is actively working on a 1.2.3 port for RP2, but as usual, she’s keeping the details secret. Below is an image she tweeted on the 12th showing volcanoes and giant rubber trees in a vanilla 1.2.3 jungle biome.
Millenaire’s latest version (2.4.3) is compatible with MC 1.2.3. and can be found at the official Mellinaire page.
ali4z very quickly updated Wireless Redstone to MC 1.2.3, but the version number remains the same (1.5).
w3(r4ft updated his mod to MC 1.2.3 and added a few changes. Details in the official thread.
Last but not least, all versions of OptiFine are now compatible with 1.2.3 and available here.
To summarize: We are still waiting on RedPower2, Industrial Craft, a “final” version of Buildcraft, and the Buildcraft addons (teleport pipes, logistics pipes).
Ep. 35 - Moving Day, Part 2
In this video I complete my processing and sorting system, play around with foam, and groove to some royalty free music.

In this video I start moving into my new building and finally begin to process my quarry output. Part 1 of 2!
