It’s been discovered that a small change to the peripheral API in ComputerCraft 1.48 broke the popular MiscPeripherals mod by RichardG. A lot of people use this mod, so I’ve released this quick hotfix to solve the problem. You don’t need to install this update if you or your server don’t use MiscPeripherals (but you should try it out, it’s quite good!)
Update: It seems there is also a conflict between MiscPeripherals and Equivalent Exchange 3. If you have both these mods installed, you need to upgrade MiscPeripherals to the latest version. This is not a bug in ComputerCraft.
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.4.6 or 1.4.7 and an appropriately up to date version Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, drop ComputerCraft1.481.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
So Minecraft was updated today, to version 1.4.5. Normally when this happens this means I have to release a new version of ComputerCraft, but this time the obfuscation mappings didn’t change, so the already released version 1.47 just works! I hope this becomes a thing, and all updates in future can be this simple. Check the post below for the download link.
In community news, lua superstar Nitrogenfingers just produced his most impressive creation yet, a graphics-driven visual 3D printing system using Turtles and Advanced Computers, check it out:
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.4.4 or 1.4.5 and the recommended version of Minecraft Forge for your Minecraft version. Once forge is installed, drop ComputerCraft1.47.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
Ported to Minecraft 1.4.4
Fixed label tooltips not showing up in SMP
In other news: In response to the pitch video I recorded last month, I’ve been invited to speak on the Minecraft Modding panel at MINECON in Paris the weekend after next, with Searge from the Minecraft Coder Pack, and others! This is a huge and slightly scary thing! The panel will mostly be about modding in general, but I’d love to talk to fans about ComputerCraft if I get the right questions. If you’re going to the con, hit me up on Twitter, and maybe I’ll see some of you there.
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.3.2 and at least version 275 of Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, simply drop ComputerCraft1.45.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
This update adds one of the longest requested features to ComputerCraft: Colour Terminals! I’m really looking forward to seeing what kind of apps and games people make with this :D. This version also marks the first release of ComputerCraft where all the beta testing was done in public: After a bumpy start, it went quite well, so it’s something we’re going to keep doing in future. If you want to beta test future versions of ComputerCraft ahead of their wide release and help us fix bugs, check out the Beta Testing area on the ComputerCraft forums.
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.3.2 and a recent version of Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, simply drop ComputerCraft1.42.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
Ported to Minecraft 1.3.2 and the Forge mod system
Floppy Disks can now be dyed different colours
Wireless Crafty Turtles can now be crafted
All new textures
New Forge config file
Various tweaks and bug fixes
Important Note for players of previous versions:
ComputerCraft now uses Forge config files, instead of the old ModLoader ones. If you edited mod_ComputerCraft.cfg or mod_CCTurtle.cfg in a previous version to change Block or Item IDs, you need to change them correspondingly in the new ComputerCraft.cfg and CCTurtle.cfg before loading your old worlds, or you will lose your ComputerCraft items.
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.2.5 and a recent version of Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, simply drop ComputerCraft1.4.zip into your /mods/ directory, no extracting or modifying the Jar necessary.
On a personal note, preparing this update these last few weeks has been a lot of work, but it’s been brilliant to get back into active development on the mod again. Expect the next new version not to come with such a long delay. I’m really excited to see what people can do with the new turtle features in this update, and I plan to release some youtube videos over the next few days showing what’s possible. With the new automation capabilities, ComputerCraft has grown from a great mod that’s best used with others, to a fully-fledged creative automation mod that delivers a complete gameplay experience in it’s own right. Whether you’re learning to program or a seasoned pro, I hope you enjoy playing with it as much as I do.
