PaladinCraft Delta

From Sphere
Jump to navigation Jump to search

We were explorers. We thought to travel the stars, to defeat all who stood against us, to defy time itself. And for a time, we were successful. In the end, our hubris was our undoing, and we fled the apocalypse we unleashed. We set sail in an End ship, crossing through the angles of space, to a new world, with new possibilities. What path would the future hold in the Delta world?

Server Rules

This is a PVE building server. The goal is to build cool stuff, not to destroy people's stuff. I don't plan on using fancy server utilities - we should be fine, but I will ban people who decide to be assholes. We have several mods with extreme destructive potential, including Thaumcraft, ICBM, and IC2. I can easily add dimensions for unleashing hell.

This is a whitelisted private server. Do not post the IP here. Only bring people you trust on the server. Please avoid introducing drama.

The last Minecraft server ran for a year. I intend to keep this map running even longer, regardless of Minecraft versions.

Some mods in this modpack can be exploited in combination with other mods. Don't try to break the server or cheese the game.

Safety Rules

  • Any fission fuel from IC2 is extremely radioactive, and will poison you if it is in your inventory
  • Improperly built IC2 reactors can explode, and the explosion can go through obsidian. Reinforced blocks are the only useful containment.
  • Nothing will stop an antimatter explosive or red matter explosive. Only bedrock is not destroyed
  • Thaumcraft is extremely dangerous. Misuse can infest the land with monsters or even drive you insane.
  • None of the other planets is habitable without environmental suits, oxygen, and often thermal or radiation protection

Mod Usage Warnings

Recipe conflicts can resolved using alternate production methods - using metal presses to make gears, for example - or using a worktable to switch between different product of a single recipe.

Do not use Railcraft boilers until further notice. Boilers are safe for cautious use.

Tips, Tricks, and Trolls

  • ICBM allows easy access to both Steel (One Iron Ingot plus Three Coal/Charcoal in the crafting grid) along with IE wire.
  • Crafting Coal/Charcoal with Chaos Shards gained from Chaos Ore can massively boost their output. In the case of a Chaos Coal/Charcoal Block on the order of 640k RF/block. For comparison a default Charcoal block only provides 120k RF/block.
  • Thermal Expansion Hardened Glass is witherproof, can be wrenched out of place, and is fairly cheap to make. Used properly this can make farming Netherstars easy as going down to the local market.
  • Thermal Expansion energy cells and satchels can be enchanted with Holding, which at Holding Three will increase their capacity by 3x. This allows silly levels of energy storage even using a fairly low tier item in exchange for a few pieces of Lapis and some XP.
  • Openblocks adds XP drain grates which can be set up to automatically drain you of XP when walking over them and turn it into Liquid XP that will not be lost in the case of death. This can be later used in various processes or consumed when needed (say for enchanting).
  • Funky Locomotion allows the creation of true blast doors and other advanced piston creations if desired.
  • Blaze Powder can be produced using Cinderpearls from Thaumcraft in the Phytogenic Insolator from Thermal Expansion if provided with a supply of Fluxed Phytogrow. Even easier is to make lava sand.

Custom Engineering

  • Major increases in the efficiency of Immersive Engineering power systems have been made
  • There are additional reservoirs in the Nether and on other planets. Europa is notable for not having mineral reserves, but plenty of water.
Space Engineers inspired recipes added via scripts!
  • Centrifugal Separators can now process space rock (not ice) into liquid concrete, with a chance of iron ore, tin ore, aluminum ore, and silicon
  • Magma crucibles can melt space ice to water.
Fluid Interconversion (IF Fluid Dictionary)
  • Nether Honey can be turned into Forestry Honey
  • Syngas and Liquefacted Coal can be inter-converted
  • Liquid Concrete and Construction Foam can be inter-converted
  • Fluids such as heavy water, ethanol biofuel, protein, sulfuric acid, and distilled water can be converted into similar version in other mods
BLUEX Process
  • Centrifuging Cyanite waste blocks from a reactor can produce Blutonium, Plutonium, and liquid Uranium.
Additional Refining (IE Refinery)
  • Empowered Canola Oil can be made from IE ethanol and canola oil
  • Coolant in IC2 can be made from liquid sodium and liquid nitrogen
Advanced Fermentations (IE Fermenter)
  • Sugar can be fermented to syrup. Syrup can converted in a mix to honey using a honey drop
  • Meat ingots can be fermented in low tier mob chunks.
Distillation Tower
  • Heavy Water can be extracted from sea water, producing salt and distilled water as byproducts
  • Lava can be distilled into petrotheum and pyrotheum
Mana Refining
  • Combining Alchemical Slurry from Embers with Liquid Starlight from Astral Sorcery in a Refinery will yield fiery essence.
  • Fiery Essence can be distilled to primal mana along with toxic byproducts, at a high cost in energy.
  • Primal mana can be used to make mana dust using a liquid bottler. Recipes with mana dust will be added.
    • Primal Mana can be used to make black lotus, which can be used to make lots of botania mana
    • Mana dust can be used in an Imbuer to turn platinum into Mithril / mana-infused metal.
Still adding to Forestry
The forestry still can extract DNA from martian bacterial sludge, protein from liquid meat, and make ic2 distilled water
Pressing matters
Tritanium plates can be made with the metal press
Flour can be made by pulverizing wheat
Dilithium crystals can be converted into poison powder
Additional Additions
  • IE fertilizer can be composted into fertilized dirt
  • The atomic reconstructor can turn prosperity crystals into dilithium, sapphires into lunar sapphires, and superium essence into ectoplasm
Alternate Recipes
  • Expensive ingots in Thaumcraft Additions now have less annoying recipes - check JEI
  • Industial meat can be turned into Vanilla Food Pantry SPAM
  • Galactricraft RTGs can be made from IC2 RTG fuel
  • Ember cores can be turned into ember crystals using an ember shard.
  • Tar can be converted into slimeballs
  • RandomThings Glowpowder can be made from Astral sorcery's equivalent

MegaProject Suggestions

Rex Railroad:

  • Rex has suggested making an overworld railline via Railcraft to connect all of our bases. Considering most of them are fairly close togeather that seems to be a quite useful and practical suggestion.
  • Current Status:
    • Railroad depot mostly complete.
    • OP & Rex rail lines operational.
    • PA-Oseng-WS Rail Line is placed but not fully operational.


  • Major base for launching space exploration
  • Current Status: Complete

Nuclear Plant

  • Large-scale Nuclear Power Plant
  • Current Status: Operational, need extra decorations

Nuclear War

  • Current tentative plans for sending this map off is via a full on nuclear exchance as we have ICBM installed. If desired building with this in mind could be fairly entertaining.
  • Mass Production of nuclear ordnance is mostly ready to go.

Current Mod Pack

Version 1.44 of the modpack is available for download - Make a backup copy of your .minecraft/journeymap folder first!

Getting it Working

Make sure to disable Mipmaps - I went from 1 FPS to 25 FPS just with that. Optifine is also recommended for borderline computers.
