Reviews and Stuff


* Updated Ars Magica to 5.53.013

Fixed a crash bug with the imbue enchantment
Fixed strange skipping behaviour when switching to a spell book via the mouse wheel then sneaking
Fixed a crash with rendering affinity. If you have an affinity and it does not render, search for item ID conflicts.
Fixed a crash bug when casting a spell book with no spells in it
Casters can now cast again (derp)
Fixed the spell book GUI bug, all window sizes should be fine now.
Fixed a crash bug with the power system attempting to calculate power values
Fixed a bug where certain spells could not be cast from spell books/spell staves
Fixed a bug where the in game UI could overlap the spell book UI
Fixed crash bug on load with Buildcraft and Tinker's Construct
Occulus spell analysis is now paged (will not overflow)
Fixed a Calefactor dupe bug
Fixed a crash bug when Shift+Clicking custom spell scrolls into the occulus
The new UI now has some *minor* configurability (check the main config file)
Config files should fully generate on load
New UI design
Several minor graphical tweaks and improvements
Added custom icons for all buffs
Added rudimentary spawn eggs back into the mod (under AM items tab)
Added Fatigue bar
Spell Cooldowns are no more!
As you cast, you will build Fatigue
The more fatigue you have, the more mana each spell costs
Max fatigue implies a mana cost increase of 3x
Fatigue decreases slowly over time
You get a higher fatigue cap at higher levels
Imbued armor no longer treats buffs as always active.
Worldgen changed again...magic walls aren't spawned, and block breaking is disabled in the first place.
Tile entity placement should be fixed now
Tower chests now have much more loot in them
Magic walls can be broken, in case any remain
Increased Telekinesis Range
New Block: Occulus.
If given an unsigned book and quill (bottom slot), records all events during spell creation in that book
Removing the book clears its internal buffer of what it will record.
If the book remains in, it can record multiple craftings sequentially.
Must be within 8 blocks to record
If a book is placed in it that already has text, the text will be overwritten
Useful for seeing what ill effects transpired
Is lab apparatus (counts towards helping stability)
If given a spell (top slot), explains what the spell does in detail
Early version of the in-game wiki
New Spell: Moonbeam
Gets more powerful at night
Longer range based on moon phase
New Spell: Rift Storage
Opens a rift that you can access like a chest
Inventory is unique to you
Shift+Right click to close, or closes after 1 min
New Spell: Levitation
Much slower variant of flight
Not useful for travel, but good for vertical movement
Tiered spell from slowfall
Flight is now a tiered spell from levitation
Imbued helmets now proc when sneaking
Imbue with a buff won't proc if the buff is already active
Imbued armor has a cooldown, shared with the AM armor effects
Soulbound enchant has been fully implemented. You keep soulbound items on death.
Added support for the ForgeOreDictionary in Ars crafting recipes
Re-added minor damage capability to Arctic Wind
