This post was supposed to go up days ago…

Hello!
I wanted to announce that the Mystcraft forums are up and running. Veovis and Dinnerdog put a lot of time and effort into this, so a big thanks to them! :)
The forums can be accessed here.

I also wanted to give a general update on the status of Mystcraft for 1.3.
I’ve already had a working build for 1.3.2/Forge217 for a while now, and just now I updated to 1.3.2/Forge233. We’re working on moving the base edits Mystcraft needs into Forge so that it will be installable like every other mod. :)   That probably won’t happen for the next release, but we are working on it! :)

Here’s a changelog for everything I’ve been working on since the last release:

  • Moved to Forge Edition only (note that it is still a jar mod)
  • Eliminates usage of lang file (uses internal functions instead)
  • Fixes EXP syncing on link
  • Fixes platform generation
  • Fixes bedrock generation on Standard Terrain
  • Fixes (visual) loss of potion effects on link
  • Modifies falling block rendering
  • Improves communication of falling block info
  • Removes ‘falling block’ packet
  • Breaks mod generation in ages (solution pending)
  • Cleans up and improves tpx command
  • Adds flags to the config to enable/disable mystcraft item crafting
  • Tweaks fallback system in DimensionManager
  • Adds some missing block names
  • Fixes placing receptacles
  • Force closes the book gui on held items if the book is no longer in your inventory
  • Moves biome initialization later (trying to catch other mod registered biomes)
  • Eliminates use of ‘packets’ (uses Forge network channel)
  • Fixes issue with opening book gui when placing book in receptacle
  • Moves linking and age books back to transport tab
  • Updates to Forge233
  • Changes from dimension fallback system to dim registration system
  • TPX no longer auto-creates dims
  • Adds myst-create command for creating mystcraft ages by commandline (worlds created in this manner do not have instability)
  • Fixes sending of age data on player login
  • Deleting agedatas no longer reuses slot
  • Adds instabilityEnabled flag to agedata
  • Fixes a bug with the nextFreeDimId counter added to DimensionManager
  • [hidden]
