Mod Spotlight - Redstone Paste Mod

3 hours 14 min ago

Do you like to build contraptions with redstone? Most players at least experiment with this highly versatile mechanic of Minecraft, but it does come with some frustrating downsides. "Wouldn't it be easier if you could just stick redstone lines to walls and ceilings?" is a question I often hear (both from others, and myself). Lucky for us, that question has been answered!

Redstone Paste Mod, by FyberOptic, adds a new form of redstone dust into the game, allowing you to transmit redstone signals across a variety of surfaces, including ceilings and walls.  Also included are sticky repeaters and sticky comparators, to keep your redstone current strong or do complex logic no matter where you decide to run your paste.

The placement of the paste is uniquely different than normal redstone, however.  It can be applied to any of the four directions of a block face, allowing you to create compact redstone paths, and only direct current in the directions you desire.  Individual segments can be removed by clicking them while highlighted, or you can remove the entire face at once by clicking the center area.

Holding the sneak key allows you to place both the segment you've selected as well as the one opposite.  If sneaking when placing paste in the center area, it will place paste in all four directions of the face. There is much, much more, but I'll let you discover that for yourself!

Bejeweled in Minecraft

Wed, 2014-04-16 13:34

Today's spotlight focuses on a Minecraft-based version of Bejeweled, made by Sethbling! Played entirely in your inventory, the only thing this particular version of the game is missing is a scoreboard. It is still every bit as addicting as the original, and a good bit of fun! You can get download links right here. Enjoy!

Modpack Spotlight - Agrarian Skies

The (Minecraft) world has ended, and there is nothing left. Well, ALMOST nothing; Code Wizards meddled in the balance of nature, and released hordes of monsters from other dimensions on an unsuspecting world. Not satisfied with just destroying human life, the monsters rampaged across the world eating everything they could find, and leaving nothing in their wake but empty void.

Now, it is up to you to rebuild an entire world from nearly nothing.

Agrarian Skies is a popular modpack made by Jadedcat, which takes the classic idea of a skyblock game, and cranks it up many, many notches. You start with a quest book, which guides you on your journey. Numerous spells, tools, and machines are at your disposal to complete your arduous task. However, be warned: this is not a modpack for the faint of heart! Loads of challenges, monsters, and more await you on your journey. Do you have what it takes to build an entire world?

One final note - you have a limited number of lives. That's right, you can only die so much before reality has had enough, and leaves you dead forever!

The quest book's introductory quest has a full voice-over as well, done by your favorite MCF news writer!


If you have the FTB Launcher, you can play simply by downloading the Agrarian Skies modpack, and starting up your game!
