Need a little info
Is there a forum for this mod? Just discovered it (and love it). Looking for a place to give suggestion (also to read about and discussion this mod with it's fans).
Also (noob question here), how do I see all the pages/entries on the Wiki? I know there's the Contents section at the bottom of the Main Page. But it doesn't contain all entries. Just looking to get all the info possible.
Many Thanks -- Athean
Oof that's a lot, I'll get to you later, haha.
See in the URL where it says "title=User_talk:Frizzil"? For now, you can replace "User_talk:Frizzil" with whatever and you'll navigate there ;) So to see all the pages on the wiki, you'd type in Special:AllPages and it'll list them! There's other special pages as well, these can be Googled with "MediaWiki Special" if you're interested (MediaWiki is the engine powering the wiki).

@Frizzil: Thanks man! Yeah, I think I may take to the Technic forums... they seem a lot less crowded (and you can actual start your own threads). I take it you check the Technic forums?
I check all o' them, cause I'm a machine... Frizzil (talk) 12:54, 21 June 2012 (MST)
@Frizzil: Hahahaha! Nice!
Also, if I can make an edit from the Elf, Steve, Halfing, and Dwarf page about their origins then I would need your permissions.
Adding A Better Texture Pack To Your Mod
I think that this mod is so awesome but sometimes I just kinda get bored of the normal appearance. Maybe if you made a texture pack that possibly makes the dire chicken more evil looking and all of the other monsters look more evil/scary then it would compliment the game perfectly.
I am a texture packer and maker of the somewhat successful Runeix Texture Pack. I am adding support for this mod, and it will be in the next release. So far I have changed all of the blocks, GUI's, and armor and weapons. Al I have left is jewelery, spells, and mob. It will be released with Runeix v4.0. However, of course, it will change everything else in Minecraft with the rest of the pack. --Kanokarob (talk) 22:27, 26 June 2012 (MST)
@Kanokarob Send me a link to the pack, I wouldn't mind throwing in any decent texturepacks if they've been made to support the additional textures :)

Ban this person
Don't worry about spam, there's tons of it :/ I'm working on ways to fight it, unfortunately it's very difficult to do. --Frizzil (talk) 17:40, 28 June 2012 (MST)
Hey, I have some experience with this.
The real reason that you are having the difficulties with spam is because your anti-spam is text, which is readable by a bot. Computers can do math. Yes, I know, unbelievable. Try asking a riddle, or easy question (how many continents are there). That would definitely fix your problem. Additionally, if you go to the mediawiki site, they have some useful cleanup software for spammed wikis. - Au.d (talk) 19:00, 24 December 2012 (MST)
Also, you may want to make www.hackslashmine.net redirect to www.hackslashmine.net/hsmwiki/. Not sure how to do that with GoDaddy(?) but with hosting 24 its part of the cpanel. Au.d (talk) 20:39, 24 December 2012 (MST)
May I suggest changing the wiki so you have to be logged in to edit and also have you, yourself, verify who gets accepted as a user after signing up? Should help with spam for now. --Like2omg (talk) 23:00, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
About the picture suggestions.
The picture suggestions is for suggestions, that needs to be more sexy. For example, if I wanted to create a monster, how would I describe it? If I described it, sometime there would be mistakes when you made the monster.jpg. So, I'm helping people by if they ask me for pictures, I can draw those pictures and make it easier to model the monster if it is added. ---Techpriest (talk) 16:07, 30 June 2012 (MST)
Techpriest (July 11th Update)
He is once again off to deleting other people suggestions, namely mine. I can understand him upright not liking my idea, everyone has different likes dislikes and opinions, but it has been discussed that the suggestion pages are for people to add suggestion for you, Frizzil, to see, not for other people to delete the ones they dont necessarily like or agree with.
First of all, your suggestions are overpowered or just plain useless, your suggestions has to be exciting not all boring to read, that's why I moved your suggestions to the discussion pages, also new pages I have been making has been preserved for a storyline, perhaps should be made. ---Techpriest (talk) 22:47, 11 July 2012 (MST)
Also, I change some of your suggestions because I WAS TRYING TO BALANCE them. P.S.: Stop thinking you can do anything you want, stop posting everything at the top, everything that was newly posted must be at the bottom of every suggestions page.
You're both acting like little shits, so either cooperate or get a ban.
Sorry, I didnt see the put things at bottom thing. But that is minor compared to what you did. YOU WERE BANNED for changing and deleting others' suggestions. And, I dont think I can do whatever I want, do you see me changing suggestions of other people? No. Because it isnt allowed. My apologies for not putting my suggestions at the bottom, but you CANNOT touch other peoples suggestions other than moving them to the bottom if they dont see that rules as I didnt. If anyone here thinks they can do anything, it is you sir. And again, whether you think my suggestions are overpowered and useless doesnt matter. I dont see you on the developers page, I dont see you doing anything other than starting up the suggestion pages which both I and Frizzil think is a bad idea, and I dont see you doing anything toher than getting rid of suggestions that you dont like or are better than yours, which again, is out of your limited power.--Kanokarob (talk) 07:59, 12 July 2012 (MST)
Mounts and stuff
Frizzil, just wondering, but how exactly will mounts be implemented. Will they have Horse Armor or anything like that? Will they level up with you or stay the same level throughout the adventure?
Just wondering about something completely off-topic, but have you seen Madness Combat?
I kind of know both of those, but I was talking about how the ideas would go.
Actually, that's a great idea!
Haven't given much thought to specifics, and it's entirely subject to change, but mounts will be unlockable through quests and possibly through rare vendors that roam the overworld (the more ways to obtain them, the better, really.) I imagine one quest in particular that goes something like: 1) bad guy speeds away, 2) you follow on mount/on foot, 3) bad guy goes faster than you can currently go, 4) randomly chosen, ridiculous looking epic mount swoops in and says something, Mexican-border-style theme song and all, and you jump onto it 5) If you catch the villain, you keep the mount. Epic mounts will prolly include Rainbow Dash, the F***ing DeLorean, Lapras, a Big Brother from the Big Brother program, maybe another MLP pony, a knockoff WoW mount, and more. Many will have lots of context-sensitive idle banter while you're travelling (e.g. Rainbow Dash: "This is BOORRing... I need to fly!" Big Brother: "Wheee!" Fluttershy: "What's '/b/'?")
Madness Combat? I saw you mention it a few minutes ago on the forum, MLP fanfic? I'll look into it, MLP fan stuff tends to be really good for some reason XD There was an NES style MLP game I played a while back that was brilliant (and genuinely scary.)
--Frizzil (talk) 19:40, 8 July 2012 (MST)
Dude, Madness Combat is a hilariously violent series of animations involving a dude who kills a sheriff and it all goes to hell in the later episodes. Link is here. Also, Fluttershy versus MAG Agent.
My H/Mining experience. Some Idea's and Suggestions.
Hey, been playing tekkit on the technic launcher for a while with some friends, but we were getting bored; so I had a look through some of the other mods. Came past Hack / mine and it was amazing! Had a quick snoop around singleplayer before asking to get it up on our sever. It was quick setup so it was buggy, but that's server problems. The server host said that it was running off of 1.8, is H/M really that out of date? After a few server crashed we changed it back to tekkit.
I thought it may have been nice to have an adenture map using H/M, so I went on to creative. First loading a superflat world, every time I did it lagged like hell! I just could not load any superflat worlds. Then going onto a regular world I started building some custom dugeon designs like Icy flooring and some traps around the place. From playing I did notice there was a lack of variation on some item texture. Weapons from the broadsword to the dragon sword look the same. I snooped around the files with winrar and found the file with these textures and saw it was layed out ready to add the other textures. I couldn't get my own custom textures to appear in-game though, due them all being bound to the first column of textures. But yeah, I would love to see these other textures finished, and some different dungeon room designs would be EPIC! (oh and also the mystery land would be cool finished with new mobs and dungeons.) Also on this map I was thinking of having an Orc village, with like huts and lookout towers and have orc spawners in them. Would be cool to have the other style of orcs finished.
The guys on the server all prefer the way you get to adventure and fight a lot more, but some of them also like to have a house, but because of way the levels work you need to adventure out. So I was thinking you could have something in the style of a "Town portal scroll" from Torchlight. You could be lucky to find them in dungeons. When used it teleports you back to your house/bed, and when you're ready it sends you back to where you used it from, but you only get the one use.
Uhh, this is getting a bit long but, also I see on every wiki page it says "there is also a plan for this, but will come at a later date" How old are these post, I don't know if this later date is next week, or an abonded plan from last year. Anyway, I know this got a bit too long buty thanks for reading! Once again loving the mod, and if it keeps getting updated it's going to be win!
EDIT: Almost forgot, one thing that I didn't like is how the attack speed affects the placing and breaking of blocks. On creative building the custom dungeon took about 3x as long because there is a delay between placing blocks. The animation when mining is a bit dodgey too. Finally, one thing that could help me, I don't understand how repairing works, the wiki page says you can use ... materials to repair your stuff when put in the craft bench, but whatever I try it doesn't work. How do I get it to work?
Notes for Frizz
- Install QuestyCaptcha and configure it with some Hack/Mine or Minecraft related questions.
- Scout through Special:AllPages and delete anything that looks weird. (Hint: WordWordNumber, Noun/Name Random Junk).
- Get one of these as the logo :)
- Move the wiki to the root directory (I don't use Go Daddy's hosting products for a reason, but you should be able to figure it out).
- Enable URL rewriting.
- Edit the sidebar.
That should make the wiki a bit more attractive. As for content, there's not much I can say. As for server support, I'm actually trying to figure that out, and it's proving difficult, but I'm thinking about tricking maven to compile against a H/M server jar, then maybe I need permission from you (possibly) to release it.
Frizz be checkin' his messages
Thanks for the advice, Tuxed. Yeah, I could definitely stand to use a better hosting service. I actually haven't been able to get Captchas working for some insane technical reason (likely related to friggin' GoDaddy), but once I have a spare moment I'll get back to tackling it again. Moving to the root directory may very well solve it, but then I think the URL-resolving doohicky will require attention... for the record, I'm a complete noob to server management. :P Hopefully I have enough time in the next few weeks to improve the wiki.
By content, you basically mean the information throughout the wiki? It is what is is, though I'm sure it could use thorough perusal.
--Frizzil (talk) 17:04, 17 December 2012 (MST)
Yes, we know you're busy. And we really love what you've made. But would it be possible to get a link to the source? I would like the chance to make /tp commands and such. - Au.d (talk) 19:06, 24 December 2012 (MST)
For any wondering: Frizzil told me that the project is closed source.
H/M ideas wiki
Frizzle, Me and some other people have been making this wikia, where people suggest ideas for H/M. Please come over some time, and check it out. http://hackmine-ideas.wikia.com/wiki/Hack/mine_ideas_Wiki. Thought you would want to know.
Tuxed replies after 2 months
Chances are I can clean things up for you and just do a move to my VPS (hosting my wiki hosting server TropicalWiks). I can help manage the wiki, and it is set up with full anti-spam protection.
