DovahCraft Official Topic
Mon, 07/01/2019 - 04:30 (edited)

Welcome to the Official DovahCraft Topic Board. Any and all documentation concerning DovahCraft will be held here.

DovahCraft

A Vanilla Expansion Mod

(All version updates will be in the comments down below. The only thing that will change from this post is the Current Version.)

Current Version: Version 1.7.1 Beta

If you are not familiar to DovahCraft, this mod offers 16 new Ores to be generated in your new worlds, as well as new Mobs and items. Explore your Minecraft worlds, mine through dungeons and craft your tools with new sets including: Ruby, Cobalt, Titanium and even Emerald.

1.7 Beta Release Changelog:

Very close to full release!

 

Additions:
——————

⦁    Added Smithing Table. Vanilla Minecraft Swords, Pickaxes and Axes can now be reforged to become stronger tools, up to +5 per tool. Shovels and Hoes are omitted from this, as they are neither combat oriented nor used for mining any important materials for tools.
⦁    Added Smoker. The Smoker can only smelt raw foods. Appropriate fuels are Coal, Charcoal and Block of Coal.
⦁    Added Gunpowder Ore. Will explode upon mining.
⦁    Added Lithium Ore. Contents are required for Nano Cells and can only be found in the Nazarr Dimension.
⦁    Added Nano Cells and Nano Cores, a very strong fuel capable of lasting for a whole Minecraft hour. Nano Cells are required to craft Nano Cores. Only used for vanilla Furnaces for now.
(72,000 Ticks = 60 real minutes)
⦁    Added Stripped Wood. Currently unavailable until I can find a workaround for Vanilla tool use actions.
⦁    Added Hard Magenta Glass, a block that was not present before due to an oversight.
⦁    Added recipe for Nightstone Brick.
⦁    Added Command:

/ar

Usage = Displays your current Armor Rating.

 

Changes:
——————
⦁    Buffed Hard Oil's cook time to 30,000 ticks (was 18,000), making Hard Oil the longest natural fuel in the game.
⦁    Changed Reforge Table’s crafting recipe.
⦁    Changed Blessed Apple's Strength effect with Absorption.
⦁    Changed Cobalt Ore's texture.
⦁    Wither Golem can now be hostile. Just don't punch him.
⦁    Changed Nether Gold Sword and Nether Iron Sword textures in preparation of the “Reforge System”.
⦁    Replaced the Sky Dimension with the new Phabos Dimension, a new Nether-Like Dimension, just harder.
⦁    Renamed "Scaffold Block" to simply "Scaffold".
⦁    Renamed all "StoneIron" blocks to "Stiron", a combination of Stone and Iron.
⦁    Renamed "Soggy Brick" to "Pale Brick".
⦁    Renamed "Bricked Iron" to "Biron".
⦁    Renamed "Iron Topped Brick" to "Irbrick".
⦁    Renamed "NightBrick" to "Nightstone Brick".
⦁    Renamed "Fake Redstone Ore" to "Fakestone Ore".
⦁    Ore generation has been altered drastically to compensate for the Reforge System.
⦁    Modified monster spawns.
⦁    Removed Herobrine.

Fixes:
——————
⦁    BUGFIX: Knowledge Book's texture has been fixed. (Internal error)
⦁    Enderium Pickaxe's ability now overrides fall damage to be significantly less.
⦁    Fixed a testing issue with Lithium Ore crashing the game when broken.

 

Easter Eggs / References:
——————
⦁    The Reforge System’s tool ranking is reminiscent to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s improvement system, as there are six stages of improvement: Fine, Superior, Exquisite, Flawless, Epic and Legendary.

Sat, 02/23/2019 - 05:19

Update Version 1.6 Beta

2/23/2019 12:00 AM

 

Additions:
- Added Knowledge Book.
- Added Spurce Bookshelf, Acacia Bookshelf, Jungle Bookshelf, Dark Oak Bookshelf, and Birch Bookshelf.
- Vanilla Bookshelf is now called "Oak Bookshelf" to accommodate. 

Mobs:
- Added two Mobs: Wither Blaze and Wither Golem.
- Added Border, Allow and Deny blocks, Creative Only.
 

Changes:
- Reducer now has Vanilla tool support.
- Removed Rods. All custom tools that previously needed Rods to craft can now be crafted using vanilla Sticks. All custom tools that needed Rods all have their textures changed to reflect the change.
- Updated Scaffold texture.
- Updated some material block textures.
- Updated Creative Tab titles.
- All custom material blocks can be used for beacon bases.
- Removed glint from Obsidium Ingots and Nuggets.
- Increased spawn chance of Nightmare Castles and Nightmare Pillars.
- All Pickaxes will now break if their respective abilities are used too much.

- Adamantium Pickaxe's Fire Strider ability now uses 200 durability. (Was 150)
- Enderium Pickaxe's ability is different.
- Osmite Ingots no longer need Crystals for crafting.

- Revamped Sky Dimension.
- Removed tooltips for Cobalt and Enderium items.
- Revamped Life Totem.
- Changed mod image.
- Modified all Ore generation values so that more Ore can generate in the Overworld and in the Nether.
- Nether Core structure now spawns in the Nazarr dimension. (placement is a little bugged at the moment, meaning it can spawn in trees)
- Right-Clicking the Nether Core block (given the structure requirement is met), will convert the structure to a Converted structure, with Glowing Obsidian for the frame.
- Converted Nether structure now spawns three Wither Skeleton and one Wither Golem.

Fixes:
- Fix for Materializer and Trash Can for their achievements not popping up.
- Fix for Ender Sword now breaking if its ability is used too much.
- Fixed an issue where the Blast Furnace would consume Coal 100% of the time.
- Fixed an issue where the Human mob would not have any sound.
- BUGFIX: The Materializer now stacks items.
- BUGFIX: Glowing Obsidian now has a light level of 10.

** PLANNED: Add a reforge system that would affect Vanilla-only Swords, Pickaxes and Axes, up to +5. i.e. Diamond Sword +5. **

I think it's actually a nice idea to have an official topic where you speak of updates (unless you release updates at an insane speed).

I think the mod changelog should be synthetic (yes, my mods' changelogs aren't that synthetic XD) and the comments in the official topic should be like news that tell more about the update.

Fortunately, or…
Sun, 02/24/2019 - 06:30

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you want to look at it, my updates usually come in random time intervals.

I usually try to stick to only releasing big content updates, meaning updates that actually contain visible changes, such as new items, blocks, mobs, gameplay changes, etc., with the exception for Update Version 1.5 (which that name prefix will be overhauled to something much more friendly).

 

1.7 Beta's release will probably be far away, given what project I've given myself. Trying to figure out a reforge system, in terms of balance, should be fun, and hopefully a feature that will be very nice to use.

Surprise! No, I am not dead!


I know it's been an extremely long time since I have publicly said anything in regards to DovahCraft's progression, and I apologize for that. Due to summer hours, work has taken a lot of time out of my day. In addition, my computer recently suffered from a hard drive crash, rendering my computer mostly useless. Thankfully, I was able to recover all my data in regards to MCreator and DovahCraft, as well as install a new SSD, so progress will continue. I realize at this point DovahCraft might be dead, but maybe a surprise update will bring it back. And, no, it won't just be a new Reforge System (which is fully working)... This new update will add some new Blocks, Fuels, and a new Ore that, well... Might be a bit touchy.

 

I plan on having the new update of DovahCraft out anywhere from tomorrow (Saturday June 22) to Monday.

Very glad to hear! I'm currently working on a simple website to show off new blocks, items and recipes based off of Wix.

I've tried making a Wikia page, but they just kinda irritate me. With Wix, I have prior knowledge of using the platform.
I do agree on some grounds that Wikia is easier to view, much like Minecraft's Gamepedia page, Wix is just easier for me.

The website for DovahCraft…
Mon, 06/24/2019 - 06:55

The website for DovahCraft is halfway done, however I want to go ahead and share it. Recipes on the site are coming very soon, once I get all the other stuff situated.

You can visit the DovahCraft website by clicking here.
Note that there are still some tweaks to be made.

 

The website progress will not hinder DovahCraft's progress. In fact, updates via MCreator will be made first, then the website will update to reflect any changes. And as far as DovahCraft's progress is concerned, I have a pretty beefy list of changes and additions that will be surfacing a public release Monday around 4PM EST! Stay tuned.

Version 1.8, aka "The Big…
Mon, 07/01/2019 - 04:29

Version 1.8, aka "The Big One" contains a lot of exciting changes to DovahCraft! This version is far away from being completed, but allow me to list three new Tool changes coming in Version 1.8:
 

  • Emerald Pickaxe's ability is no longer "Money Wise". New ability is named "Luck O' The Irish". Uses 25 durability upon Right-Click. Grants Luck V to the player. If armor rating is less than or equal to 15, an additional Health Boost effect is added. If armor rating is greater than or equal to 16, an additional Resistance effect is added.
     
  • Reworked Adamantite Pickaxe's "Fire Strider" ability. Amount of Flame particles are now based on player health upon Right-Click. If the player is burning, a Regeneration effect is applied.
     
  • Nether Gold Pickaxe now has two abilities: "Feed the Greed" and "Penny Pincher". "Feed the Greed" uses 75 durability upon Right-Click. Grants the player Haste IV for 30 seconds.
    "Penny Pincher" has a 15% chance of having any block drop a Gold Nugget while mining.

I have a lot more in mind of what I want to do, so please stay tuned. Biome changes, dimension reworks, mob behavior and more are to be expected! Maybe some new blocks or... possibly a new End-Game boss or tool set? We will see. 😉

Have any suggestions or any issues in the current build? Please feel free to jot them down either here, or the official DovahCraft mod page and I will get to them when I can! Thank you all for giving me a chance to show my creativity, it means the world to me. I understand DovahCraft isn't as beautiful as a lot of other mods as far as block models and textures, but DovahCraft is not meaning to be -- it's its own thing. Stay tuned.
