I've gone by these names in the past, if for some reason you find me familiar:
Times grew worse and worse with Rip Van Winkle as years of matrimony rolled on; a tart tempter never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edge tool that grows keener by constant use. For a long while he used to console himself, when driven from home, by frequenting a kind of perpetual club of the sages, philosophers, and other idle personages of the village, that held its sessions on a bench before a small inn, designated by a rubicund portrait of his majesty George the Third. Here they used to sit in the shade, of a long lazy summer’s day, talk listlessly over village gossip, or tell endless sleepy stories about nothing. But it would have been worth any statesman’s money to have heard the profound discussions that sometimes took place, when by chance an old newspaper fell into their hands, from some passing traveller. How solemnly they would listen to the contents, as drawled out by Derrick Van Bummel, the schoolmaster, a dapper learned little man, who was not to be daunted by the most gigantic word in the dictionary.
In the last weeks of his life, Ted, a high school senior, drew fantasy cartoons and recorded his thoughts in a secret code that only a close friend could decipher. Part of Ted’s decoded obituary, written shortly before he killed himself, read:
"My I.Q. is one-hundred and fourty-two. My mind is diseased, that I know. I am going to kill myself. What a relief it was. I am so much better now. You cannot do wrong when you are dead. Time is infinite, and we are at the beginning."
Better Foliage works with biomes so when the seasons change, so does the foliage. I like the reeds in spring and summer. The lily pads and coral are nice as well.
Our mal_wilson has been very active recently, and has even taken to building a whole village himself. He has taken the building designs from an old map of mine, so it is very strange seeing buildings I made several years ago on the server. In the meantime, I made an airship to test a plugin that allows blocks such as ladders or trap doors to remain after the base block is broken. Also, MAtmos sound mod makes for a very relaxing atmosphere in the grasslands.
Additionally, it has been decided that we will be keeping the map for 1.8, as most things are acquirable as they are normally. Prismarine items will have a vendor in the shops, and we will construct a large quarry in spawn at which the player may purchase andesite, diorite, and granite.
Back to fixing broken plugins and playing with mods. Shaderpack needs editing again but I thought it was good enough for some screenshots.
I have only ever played with the vanilla launcher so I can’t say, but it requires no modifications to play, everything is done by server side plugins. The mods I use with Forge are Optifine, Shaders Mod, Dynamic Lights, and now Foliage (a continuation of Better Grass & Leaves).
mc.suikacraft.com for the main server, there are a few issues that I cannot resolve as I am on holiday, but you should still be able to play!
