BTWTweak v0.9j for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Dec 23, 2016 · 8 commits to master since this release

Note: this version has a problem when patching in Java 8, use v0.9k instead!

What's new in v0.9j

  • Removed BTWTweak stumps as they are now implemented in BTW.

  • Removed termites from mineshafts, logs are now whole again. This change
    is due to the way stumps are implemented in BTW.

  • Added stump textures for non-oak wood types.

  • Changed pistons to melt down to 2 gold nuggets and 6 iron nuggets to be
    consistent with reduction in BTW.

  • Allowed normal difficulty for hardcore (permadeath) mode.

  • Allowed easy difficulty to be selected only in the main menu. It is now
    called "wimpy". Resets to normal after restarting the game.

  • Extended maximum chat line length to 256 characters.

  • Added BTWTweak version to the announcement message when connecting.
    You don't want to use BTWTweak on non-BTWTweak servers and vice-versa.

  • When disconnecting, the player entity is removed only after 60 ticks
    (3 seconds). This prevents exploiting initial invulnerability by
    repeatedly disconnecting and connecting in dangerous situations.
    Make sure to disconnect only when safe from now on.

  • Changed dynamite to be lit with hold and thrown with release of a button.
    This makes throwing dynamite more precise and much more fun!
    This feature is dedicated to the good old Blood 3D game.

  • Dropped support for the old Deco addon.

  • Added support for the new Deco addon, if glass shards are found, they
    will drop upon the destruction of glass blocks. Similarly, Deco stained
    glass is breakable like usual glass, both by rocks and by falling upon.

  • Fix Deco error with losing written map item buoyancy and blow distance.

  • Changed achievements around a bit to be technically possible in BTW.
    Ideally they need an overhaul but that's some future task.

  • Made it so that sneaking would prevent falling from a rope.

  • Added an ability to jump out of vehicles such as boats and minecarts
    without silly and unpredictable teleportation. This also could lead to
    interesting contraptions with jumping out of a speeding minecart.

  • Fixed small visual error: main menu buttons covering the long BTW version
    string.

  • Backported ability for buttons to be placed on the top and bottom of the
    block. Unlike new versions of Minecraft, such buttons are symmetric. Also,
    the buttons are now placeable on any flat surface, not just full blocks.

  • Added an ability to attach torches, buttons, etc. on backsides of stairs.

  • Fixed (prevented) wolf cubs teleporting to player as they grow up even
    while sitting.

  • Fixed an exploit with players escaping through the roof of Nether.

  • Attempt to fix stuck glitched ghost fireballs.

  • Fixed and adjusted what blocks are displayed on creative tabs.

  • Added ability to add new tweak scripts without recompiling BTWTweak.

  • Added ability to merge microblocks by placing them together with the others
    in the following ways:

    • corner + corner = moulding,
    • moulding + moulding = siding,
    • siding + moulding = stairs,
    • stairs + moulding = full block,
    • siding + siding = full block,
    • moulding + siding = stairs.
  • Improved microblock preview to take account for the above change,
    and display correctly when looking at a side of a snow cover.

  • Added very rare zombie spawn with axes. Beware, they wreck obstacles much
    faster than regular zombies!

  • Fixed middle-click block picking for wooden microblocks.

  • Fixed swords breaking blocks in creative like in new versions of Minecraft.

How to install

  • Create a new folder
  • Put BTWTweak.jar in it
  • Put minecraft.jar (or minecraft_server.jar) with BTW and mods (MCPatcher, Deco, CraftGuide, etc.) already installed in it
  • Run BTWTweak.jar: double-click or use the command line: "java -jar BTWTweak.jar"

BTWTweak v0.9h for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Oct 31, 2015 · 57 commits to master since this release

What's new in v0.9h

  • If CraftGuide is found in the minecraft.jar, it will be patched so the
    guide key works on inventory screens and displays recipes involving the
    item under the cursor. I find it interesting the code was there all this
    time yet unable to execute due to a bug.

  • Added key shortcut for quick usage of /tell command for quick and
    hassle-free private messaging on servers. Default on R. It will open the
    chat with "/tell" + last told username.

  • Fixed possible server crash when loading a corrupted world where chest tile
    entity does not match the chest block.

  • Fixed problem with falling out of the world causing an infinite loop if
    gravestones are enabled.

  • Improved microblock preview: now it supports additional microblocks from
    add-ons and displays only when the block placement is not obstructed by
    player or other entities.

  • Added recipes for joining nether brick slabs and white cobble slabs into
    blocks.

  • Fixed problem where ladder couldn't be placed when standing in the same
    block even though the player did not intersect its collision box (MC-9704).
    This also allows placing microblocks when partially standing in the target
    block; the preview feature was adjusted accordingly.

How to install

  • Create a new folder
  • Put BTWTweak.jar in it
  • Put minecraft.jar (or minecraft_server.jar) with BTW already installed in it

BTWTweak v0.9g for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Oct 17, 2015 · 66 commits to master since this release

What's new in v0.9f

  • Limited chicken egg incubating to one at a time. No more happily hatching
    stacks of eggs, unless you build a whole room dedicated to that.

  • New hotbar cycling mode: fill empty slot. People who previously didn't
    like hotbar cycling may find this feature useful.

  • Increased the chance of flint from digging and filtering gravel as it felt
    way too rare. Also digging gravel has higher chance to drop a loose rock.

  • Extended block IDs! This means there is no more shortage of them and new
    blocks can be added freely. Thanks to Yhetti for pioneering the technique.

  • Made Soap blocks slippery. You will have to replace and recraft soap
    blocks you already have for this to take effect.

  • Added storage blocks for Wheat, Diamond Ingot, Coal, Charcoal, Coal Dust,
    Nethercoal, Sugar, Bone, Nitre, Potash, Ash, Flour (requires 9 of each).
    All of them can be retrieved by crafting back to items.
    Block of Bone can be only crafted by Hardcore Packing.

  • Added Block of Flesh, squishy block made of 9 Rotten Flesh by Hardcore
    Packing and uncrafted by hand.

  • Added Block of Sawdust, made of 16 Sawdust by Hardcore Packing and
    uncrafted by saw.

  • Added Block of Slime, sticky transparent block made of 9 slimeballs. Note
    that it doesn't affect piston mechanics like it does in later versions of
    Vanilla Minecraft.

  • Redstone and Lapis are now handled by Hardcore Packing, and all of the
    above storage blocks.

  • Added preview for microblocks: now you can see where your sidings,
    mouldings and corners will go.

  • Removed bone to glue recipe; bonemeal to glue ratio nerfed to 64 to 1.

  • If CraftGuide is found in the minecraft.jar, it will be patched so it will
    not display actual compass and clock data in its GUI.

  • Added support for IME input (MC-2781).

  • Create a new folder
  • Put BTWTweak.jar in it

BTWTweak v0.9f for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Apr 9, 2015 · 89 commits to master since this release

What's new in v0.9f

  • Changed villagers to display newest offers in the beginning of the list
    rather than the end, to put an end to constant scrolling through offers.

  • Changed beds to not explode in other dimensions, so you can sleep in
    a bed anywhere now.

  • Changed chests to be placeable next to each other, regardless of any
    adjacent double chests. Single chests will be merged to double chests as
    before. This allows configurations (especially together with hoppers) that
    weren't possible before. Not being able to place a chest seemed like an
    arbitrary and awkward limitation. Placing a chest while sneaking allows to
    control which chest it combines with, or none at all.

  • Fixed chests, ender chests, wall signs, beds, beacons and cocoa beans so
    they display cracks while being harvested (MC-676).

  • Fixed kiln so it is able to display multiple cracked blocks at once.

  • Improved item frames: fixed items being dark (MC-7001), or off-center
    (MC-8662); framed maps now occupy full block, and label of a renamed item
    is displayed when looking at the frame.

  • Greatly reduced chance for scroll drop from ocelots, for balance

  • Added ability for wolves to respawn in forest biome (but not forest hills)
    like hostile mobs. This is mainly done to support long term servers, where
    no animals and wolves left for kilometers around. This feature can be
    turned off in BTWTweak.cfg.

  • Added hard-boiled eggs, made from raw eggs in a cauldron, and ability to
    hatch chicks from eggs placed on a padding block and immediately below an
    active light block.

  • Increased delay for seeds rooting themselves to 2 seconds

  • Changed explosion of stone and cobblestone so there is a small chance
    to drop a pile of gravel

  • Added item tooltips to see different unfired pottery and planter types
    more clearly

  • Made snow and ice blocks melt in more consistent manner: stay in dark,
    melt in light (skylight is ignored in cold biomes). Coincidentally, this
    also makes snow blocks let a little bit of light through.

BTWTweak v0.9d for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Mar 15, 2015 · 113 commits to master since this release

What's new in v0.9d

  • Backport correct tree tops textures

  • Add Sprint key, default to Left Ctrl. This required updating the settings
    page to a scrollable list, which was borrowed from Minecraft Forge.

  • Fix FC's oversight that caused mycelium and huge mushroom blocks display
    swirling True Sight particles, even though mobs cannot spawn on them

  • Added some visual explanation to Gloom.

  • Fixed writing table causing crash when used simultaneously in multiplayer,
    and possible duplicating of items.

  • Fixed /playtime command for multiplayer

  • Renamed Haste enchantment on boots to Velocity, not to confuse with the
    Haste beacon which increases mining speed.

  • Made loose rocks to cobblestone recipe shapeless

  • Added loose rocks and ender pearls to piston Hardcore Packing

  • Made sign posts accept unicode characters

  • Improved font display for latin and cyrillic scripts when unicode font
    is chosen. That includes a fix for wider characters.

  • Patcher now looks in its own directory in addition to
    "current working directory", as on some configurations the latter was
    defaulting to a wrong place.

  • Fixed problem with unicode characters when renaming

  • Removed the annoying inventory shift when player has effects/buffs.
    It was getting unbearable when running in and outside of a beacon range.

BTWTweak v0.9b for Better Than Wolves

@grompe grompe released this Jan 4, 2015 · 138 commits to master since this release

What's new in v0.9b

  • Added a whole bunch of items to regain renaming feature:
    Ink and Quill, crafted with glass bottle, feather and ink sac;
    Writing Table, crafted with paper and planks;
    Name Tags, created on the new Writing Table when there's
    no item to rename. Those tags can be used to name entities.
    Written Book recipe is also changed to require Ink and Quill.
    Writing Table requires Ink and Quill, Paper and 1 experience level.

  • Made Minecraft display BTW icon in the window title

  • Fixed vanilla issue (MC-190) with misaligned textures facing
    East and North on partial blocks

  • Made wooden and stone pickaxes not break instantly when attacking
    mobs; coincidentally, this also raises their normal uses to 2 and 7
    respectively, which helps balance against random and reduced
    output from breaking stone (in terms of cobblestone blocks)

  • New sling weapon is now required to throw rocks. It is crafted with
    a piece of cut tanned leather and two ropes on sides.

  • Thrown rocks now inflict variable damage according to their velocity.
    This makes slings more or less viable alternative to bows, albeit
    at the price of exhaustion and leather.

  • Rocks are now stackable to 64
