Tired of mining every single ore that you see? Scared of taking your time in mining an ore vein with your back against the darkness of the cave? Or are you just that lazy to do any tedious work like mining? If any (or all) of your answers are yes, then this mod is the right one for you.

Created by username portablejim, Vein Miner is a mod that helps players mine veins of ores by creating a chain reaction.

Inspired by the Connected Destruction Mod by Bspkrs. In this mod, ores of the same type that is near the ore you mine will be mined as well in a chain.

Although it is based on the mod connected destruction, there are many aspects where this mod has its advantages. For example, this mod can be optionally installed in the client for hotkey support. It also supports personal settings per client basis. It also requires the right tool to mine (for correct drops) and features an in-game UI for changing the settings.

To use Vein Miner mod, you need to have vein miner installed on the server (or the client for single player games). For added options and support, you can also install the mod to the client along side the serer.

By editing VeinMiner.cfg, you adjust many aspects of the mod including IDs, tools allowed, and so much more.

Vein Miner Mod is not all about vein ores and mining. The same concept can be used when chopping trees. As such, an option in the config to allow quick tree cutting is available for those interested.

If you are having trouble, you can type /veinminer in the in-game console for help and details.

Minecraft is a voxel-based game that runs on a Java platform. Because of this, the game has many limitations, but can be modified just as much.

One particular thing you can change in the game, is the memory the Java application uses while playing. Changing this alters the performance of your Minecraft game, especially if you are running several mods at once.

2015-01-30_16.11.10

When in game, pressing “F3″ will show you a couple of details regarding your game. Once is the player’s position, where he is facing, how many mods installed and other details. On the upper right corner of the screen there is also the used memory and allocated memory which we will discuss.

 

What’s the difference between Allocated Memory and Used Memory?

Allocated Memory is simply the RAM that the game reserves from the system – this reserve memory cannot be used by any other program except Minecraft. The Used Memory is the actual RAM that the Minecraft game used and should be below the allocated Memory. A lot of memory also goes to the processing video card where most of the performance based on.

Why Should I Allocate More Memory to My Minecraft?

Basically, allocating more RAM does not mean you are increasing it’s performance. It simply means you are giving it more space to move. This is particularly useful when using resource pack that has high definition, using mods, and increasing map rebuild.

How To Allocate More Memory?

First of all, this is for Minecraft windows /Java version – and thus it requires you to have a full Java version.

1

 

Before anything else you should check your free memory. Do so by going to the Task Manager > Performance and check the “Free Physical Memory”.

2

Now open your Minecraft Launcher and edit your profile.

33

On the new window that pops up, look to the lower left corner and check the box JVM Arguments.

On the box provided, type in “-Xmx(N)G” where N is the number of RAM by Gig you want to allocate, or  “-Xmx(N)M” where N is the number of Ram by Megabytes you want to allocate.

For example. -Xmx1G means I am allocating 1 gigabyte of ram on my Minecraft. Hit save profile and you’re done!

By doing this you will now allocate more memory to your Minecraft! Happy Playing!

cute textures

This brightly colored resource pack is inspired with the My Little Pony franchise and cartoon series and is therefore meant for girls who love jolly and vibrant colors.

i2xkFvR

Although it is based on the My Little Pony series, it does not have a straight slap to the face pony pictures and graphics making the entire resource pack unisex compatible.

Love & Tolerance also doesn’t stray far from the vanilla textures, as a result all structures will look generally the same with or without the resource pack installed.

This resource pack is also designed for My Little Pony maps and is therefore the best way to explore Equestria.

This week, we’re going to feature a unique survival island seed with a rare submerged stronghold that you just can’t get enough of.

The seed is:
93819220

On this seed, you will spawn in the middle of a tiny island with nothing but 9 trees, several grasses, a small patch of grass/ dirt, and a chunks of sand with two sugar cane growing on the edge. The island is a bit steep so there is not much space to build on.

At first glance this map is similar to your standard island survival map, but the truth is – it is not.

2015-01-29_12.42.02

Unlike other island survival seeds, this seed features a rare stronghold below sea level, flooded and submerged right next to the island. When activated, the stronghold is the gateway towards the End.

2015-01-29_12.42.54_2

The stronghold also has a silver fish spawner that spews out non-swimming silver fish that floats outside the Stronghold – a great way to see real fishes in minecraft.

2015-01-29_12.42.10stronghold

Not only that, this seed also features not one, but two ocean monuments introduced on Minecraft 1.8. These two monuments are several chunks apart so exploring them one by one would take a long time. These ocean monuments features gold block treasures with a lot of guardian mobs. They also hold a couple of elder Guardians which act as the monument’s mini bosses.

If you can’t manage to find the monuments, they are at these coordinates.

Monument 1: x: 711 y: 62 z: -281

Monument 2: x: 200 y: 61 z: – 217

To explore them correctly and accurately, it is best to bring along Night vision potions with  you.

Overall, this seed features a good island survival challenge and a lot of adventure awaits the player – including the final battle with the Ender Dragon in the End.

This seed is available for Minecraft 1.8 under normal setting.

Minecraft maps are down right boring, luckily there are mods to improve it.

Some map-generating mods like Zen minimap or Rei’s Minimap features an updating mini map on the side of the screen without the need for players to craft it. These mods are obviously advantageous to the player but it may be too overpowered and may break the game’s immersion for some.

Gyd5HfY

Unlike those mods, Antique Atlas features a unique item that function like the vanilla map item but with an improve RPG-like art and feel into it. This fancy looking book is a record of maps on all your visited loction.

The GUI is based on RPG games like Zelda and works in conjunction with Quests mod.

5MQ5wA4

The map features an antique art that can be dragged or moved with arrow keys. The map art is similar to the Lord of The Rings maps on the original books – making the RPG element feel more genuine.

Every version of this mod introduces new features including an Atlas API, the ability to export PNG image to the current dimension of the map, map markers, and zoom in and out functionality of the map.

For immersive purposes, the atlast requires a book and a compass to craft. Right clicking on the empty atlast will create a map in regards to the player who activated it.

AqdHjbi

By exporting the map, you will get a PNG image similar to the one shown above. The image is best for RPG servers with sites that promote it.
