What's on your mind?
I remember a mod where there we're a bunch of new ores, and there are these things I'll call "Ore Temples". It's a small place made of a certain ore, and there is an "ore stick" in a chest in the temple. Also, the copper is blue. That's something I can remember. Oh yeah! There are also these weird things, and when you break them an ore comes out, and there on the grass near a potential cave, I believe. I need help finding this mod, as I haven't remembered the name of the mod. Does anybody know it, or have any leads? (PS: I got this on 9minecraft.net, so it has to be there in version 1.12.2)
As if FANDOM couldn't get shitty enough already
Anyway, we'll be reliant on the Announcements, Community Corner and WikiaNotification feature from now on, since in early December - aka, a few days - FANDOM is permanently removing the Highlight feature.
Why? Well, it's a first step to deleting the entire Forums as well to force unavoidable usage of the bland, lacking, featureless Discussions thing (about that, I have a workaround so we can "not use them" but retain Forums in a way).
RIP Forums 2010-2018 (or whenever it was created, idk) press f to pay respect
As you guys might know by now, FANDOM is disabling Forums on every single wiki there is in favour of the crappy Discussions feature. They're going with the smaller ones first, but eventually, the larger wikis, which may keep their Forums a bit longer provided they're active (unless they really want an instant overwrite, e.g. the Sonic Wiki), will lose them too. This may be one of the last months the Forums could be available on the Minecraft Mods Wiki. We don't know when they will be removed, but they will be eventually.
To make matters worse, even before the Forums are permanently being hakai'd, FANDOM will globally disable the ability to highlight. This is not a joke.
In case you're wondering:
And if you really believe the person in the screenshot made that up, go see for yourself.
Tl;dr we'll have to prepare ourselves.
Problem 1: How will we highlight stuff after the feature gets removed?
Solutions: WikiaNotification allows for sending a notification bubble in the bottom right.
I have also imported a script that allows to do the same thing, but allows to send multiple messages, something WikiaNotification can't do. Here's how to operate it. It's mildly complex, but not too hard to use.
It is important to know that only Admins can operate WikiaNotification. Content Mods might be able to operate Notiplus (the second method) but I'm not sure.
We can additionally also employ the use of announcements. This will notify every user that has made an edit or post in the last 90 days, even on other wikis. However, there's not a lot of options and you can only use one simultaneously. Discussions Moderators and Admins only.
Lastly, you can edit the Community Corner. This will send a "Community messages had been updated" notif to every wiki user when they visit, unless you mark it as minor edit.
Once the highlighting gets disabled, we'll have to resort to these four tools instead.
Problem 2: What will happen when we lose the Forums?
I have a solution for the Forum Shutdown as well. We can use the Message Walls of nonexistant users as Forum replacement (and use specific accounts as topic-specific boards), as I have done here. Follow the links at the bottom to the other "boards". Essentially, once the actual Forum here goes down, we can set up a pseudo-Forum.
I have already installed WikiaNotification, so it is already active. I'll make work of Notiplus soon enough.
Feel free to give my your thoughts and suggestions below. I will do my best to answer them. Wither out.
After having two admin for a while I decided that managing the wiki would be too much for the two of us on our own is too much of a hassle, so I decided to create this forum to ask registered users for help.
If you want to help this wiki thrive, and feel that being just a regular wiki user isn't going to help, please type what role in this wiki you believe you could do to help out.
Please note that I will not make you an admin unless I deem you capable of handling the role.
So, recently, I wanted to download mods, but whenever I tried to load my world, it crashed and this message came up: The game crashed whilst unexpected error
Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I already tried redownloading Forge, and the mod previously worked before.

is there somewhere where i can find that file?
I cannot use the actions of mobs by pressing (the default key) v Any help please ?
I had an idea for a mod.
It is based off of certain other graveston mods and but with a few dirrerences.
When you die, your grave is determined by how much XP you have. There are a fer levels:
1st level: When you die you simply leaave a ragdoll-type corpse with your items. Your held item and currently equipped armor will be shown on your corpse.
2nd level: Your corpse is burried 2 blocks under and is marked by a simple gravestone. The type of grave is random and will be either a wooden cross, cobblestone/stone cross, or cobblestone/stone gravestone. NOTE: You must have at least one wood, cobble, or stone in your invetory for the grave to be made of that material.
3rd level: Instead of a gravestone there will be a statue of your player. It can be mad of stone, obsidian, prismarine, or netherack as long as ther are 2 of that material in your inventory.
If you die while holding a sword, your corpse will be holding it.
The exeption is a level 3 grave. Your statue will be holding your sword and wearing any equipped armor.
Any gravestone/statue can be picked up and placed.
what a creepy...... whoa!
AAAAAh! help he's after me
