While I technically can’t run Minecraft mods because 1. Forge is only in 1.7.10 2. The first version of MC I ran on this PC was 1.8, so it can’t run the current release of Forge for some reason? - I’m still probably gonna know when the 1.8 release is out, since I follow an easy mods site that updates all the time, and as soon as they start releasing installers for 1.8 mods I’ll know. I now also have a different place to get Forge, where it’s actually all the up-to-date releases, so that should have it when it first releases.
In all actual fact I remember the 1.7.10 mods started getting released a while ago now, so 1.8 Forge could be sooner rather than later.
I JUST WANNA MAKE MACHINES AND CRAZY ARCHITECTURE.
I’m considering using mods in Minecraft again… somebody stop me!
I mean, considering I have a much better PC now, I should be able to run more than 2, and I’ve done much better research on it this time ‘round, but still, it could easily fuck up my Minecraft permanently if I added two conflicting mods or anything. I could probably ask my brother what he knows about modding, since I think he’s staying over tonight, and I’d really feel better about them if he had some involvement in the whole installation process.
Sorry I haven’t been online in a week; my birthday happened yesterday, my eldest bro’s been staying over all week, and I have EXCITING NEWS! We (meaning I, my parody Doctor voice, my singing teacher and the college support staff/pianist) are soon going to record my Doctor Who parody song ‘Duettaggedon’, and my singing teacher and pianist (who helpfully composed something out of the base tune I’d cobbled together) are calling it brilliant and planning to send the finished song to the BBC! Along with that, naturally if I manage to nab the sound file I’ll try to do that proper animatic I was planning not so long ago. It would be nice to have the song semi-animated (with flat colours, probably), if only for putting it on youtube.
Oh, and I’ve kinda got another fan song in the works; an MLP one this time, but hopefully with a more original tune to it than Duettaggedon has.
Sims 4 STILL hasn’t arrived.
It better be here tomorrow; I want to get it started during my weekend. (I’m also having the Apple Family (minus Granny, probably) as my second household!)
Minecraft finally worked after the new video card driver was installed (thank Celestia), and it runs lightning fast. It is extremely unperturbed by my poor internet connection. I guess it really is the computer specs that make the difference and not your internet :D
I’m now definitely even more super excited for Sims 4. It’ll make me a virtual GOD.
My new computer’s all set up. So far the resolution’s pretty fucked (Matt can probably fix that later, and I’ve installed chrome but it won’t let me log in. So, I don’t have any of my users/passwords or bookmarks. I might as well be using internet explorer!
Oh well. Gonna go try install Minecraft now; the internet’s pretty shit because of reasons and I’ve practically gone insane. My brother was talking me through everything on the phone (I ended up having to get the install files on my USB manually) and that’s how a phone call lasted two hours.
Mum’s gonn’ give me the rest of the moneys I need for Sims 4
I literally only need £6 more to be able to buy Sims 4. I also have no idea when the windows 7 download will finish seeding, but I don’t want to continue editing my family in the create-a-sim demo until then.
We’re setting up my PC. THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING. Sure, it technically won’t be done ‘til tomorrow (downloading Windows, yo! Our internet’s shit) and we wont be able to get certain softwares (photoshop especially) on it until he visits again next weekend, but according to Matt it’ll easily be able to run Sims 4 with Minecraft installed - it’s even more tricked out than his PC. And I’m totally getting Sims 4 for my birthday, I’ve decided. It’ll run so magically fast!
This also means I’ll also be able to draw digitally more regularly again, and I’ll even be able to listen to my music again whilst doing so. But not ‘til next weekend :D
