  1. You'd think if it 100% was compatible with a modded 1.12 save, it'd not crash when you launch any and all craft with the parts from the mod on them... 0_0
  2. Month later and nothing's happened, tajwo. I think we're all good

  5. Hey y'all, So today I booted up my secondary Windows 7 PC and whatever I do, it just can't seem to connect to the internet. It's old and it doesn't have an integrated WiFi card, so I have to use a dongle to connect. On boot there is nothing out of the ordinary, and when I get to desktop I just get a little X icon in the bottom right, and I'm not connected. No matter what port I connect it to the dongle doesn't work. A spare dongle doesn't work either, but that dongle works on my laptop when I use it. On further inspection the dongle I was using was fried, but the spare still doesn't work at all, no matter what ports I connect it to. I suspect drivers but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. The USB ports are good because I can use USBs and charge my iPhone from them. But the wireless dongles still don't work. Any ideas? I can specify specs of the PC if y'all need them. Thank you in advance.
  6. Interesting point. Quick google and search on Wikipedia turns up nothing. Immna keep looking everywhere I can. Tomorrow. It's 10 o'clock at night where I live RN, so, in the real Gen Z form: Aight, imma head out. Scratch that, this is me 2 minutes later. Google Advanced Search pulled up this with the keywords "JAXA Mars Manned Mission" PowerPoint プレゼンテーション (exploremars.org) Anyone know what this is?
  7. yo this is neat, this is the only thread spacejet hasn't deleted, anyone know what happened to them?

  9. Good evening! (At least, it's evening at the time of writing) After careful consideration, the Board of Directors of the Acorn Aeronautics space and aircraft group would like you to complete a commercial contract on behalf of our company. We would like you to build a large space station in mid Earth orbit capable of deploying smaller asteroid mining craft to fuel both of our companies' endeavors. It has to be able to carry a minimum of 5 10t asteroid mining craft, each with enough Delta V to escape Earth orbit and have plenty to spare to perform course corrections to intercept light to medium asteroids. The design of the craft that it is equipped with is down to you. For a bonus in your paycheck, you can choose to build this station in a position where it can easily get a Moon intercept, as this would serve in our best interests. Another bonus would be getting the space station to be capable of housing at least 5 tourists for extra income! We will pay for 20% of all costs relative to the mission. We will pay you 6 million credits for the space station meeting minimum requirements, an extra 1 million for each bonus. If the contract is not finished 15 years from now, 1 million credits will be subtracted for every 6 months delay. We will use the asteroid mining craft ourselves, but you will receive 25% of all profits generated. We very much hope you shall be interested and hope to hear your reply soon. Yours, Chairman of Acorn Aeronautics, Second Hand Rocket Science
  10. Best one I've seen yet. #saveminecraft I managed to list the wrong sources... Do a little digging for a few minutes and you'll immediately see what I'm talking about.
  11. Player Reporting in Minecraft: Java Edition – Home Addressing Player Reporting Tool | Minecraft Player Chat Reporting Feedback – Minecraft Feedback In-Game Chat Moderation and Reporting : Minecraft (reddit.com) Take a look. Most of these sound reasonable. But this system is just waiting to be abused. Unlike Roblox's reporting system, almost every report is going through and being moderated, ranging from hour bans to permanents. If this wasn't including singleplayer worlds, this wouldn't be an issue... much. But banning you from your own worlds where you can't offend anyone is just extreme. Too extreme.
  12. Y'ello folks, So something a little bit different for today. Recently I caught wind of a group attempting to stop "chat filtering" being implemented into Minecraft Java Edition. On researching this topic I have realized that this is a very important goal. Let's give y'all a rundown! Minecraft, in a nutshell, will make a chat report system that makes it so saying the word "hell" or something alike could get you banned from the entirety of Minecraft. You heard me right. Not just multiplayer and realms. If you get banned, your singleplayer worlds are locked for the duration of the ban. And if it's a permanent ban? The entirety of your Minecraft install is whisked away. This is... Many people have called it the beginning of the end. Microsoft has made the worst decision they possibly could. And the chat report system is flawed, too! Many bugs and even workarounds have been found! Why in Herobrine's name do we need a chat report system for a game where servers moderate themselves! You can't even curse in singleplayer! You can't get banned in singleplayer for cursing alone (obviously) but it's censored. Signs, nametags and the chat are all cursing protected. What the hell, Microsoft?! How can you offend someone when they aren't even there?!?! So, what can we do? Well, you can start by joining their discord server (sorry mods if this is against the rules. we need your help BADLY!). They're currently making a final push to stop them rolling the update out. Here's the link to the event: https://discord.gg/5dXrerpt?event=999798089084850236 And here's their server: https://discord.gg/saveminecraft We need your help now! Do you want your childhood game to die? Fade away? Become a game that's so quote on quote "child friendly" that you can't even say heck? By helping us you are not just helping a mere discord server grow. You are helping save arguably the most famous videogame of all time. Please, spare a few minutes of your time, and repost this everywhere you can. Twitter, Discord servers, whatever. Just spread the word. That's it.

  13. Testing out some concepts. This is the... Helios? Yeah, that sounds good. Launched using the inventively named Citrus Heavy. That might not make sense until you see it. I never took any pictures of the payload on this mission since I didn't realize I would be posting it here. I'll get back to you with the payload in time. Long story short, it didn't work. The xenon engines that I had made... no thrust? Yep. I had a ReStock Ion engine running in underclock - overclock mode (one engine underclocked to produce fuel and electricity, one overlocked to produce loads of thrust). Maybe it's becuase the ion engines weren't stock? I'll test this further soon. But I'm signing off for tonight.
