This is a major release for 1.5.2!

This release adds the advanced age generation systems so that ages now get more things you didn’t write. It also adds the ink mixing mechanics to allow you to craft link panels with special properties. Books are now crafted using link panels.

There were some changes that might require a bit of work to update existing saves or will cause other minor changes. Primarily you’ll need to update your configs and you’ll see some changes in height on some terrain gen. I recommend looking at the change log for exact information.

To recap: there is only one download (found at the bottom of this post); This file is the universal install for client and server; it no longer goes in the jar.
Mystcraft goes in the mods folder.

  1. Awesome! Thank you for all your hard work… now it’s time for DW20 to do a new spotlight for this so the less intuitive (like me) can understand some of the changes 🙂

  2. Odd, having an issue where it wont let me create nor edit descriptive books. None of the crafting recipes (at least for the books) work either. The only way for me to obtain a linking/descriptive book is the NEI or creatively spawn one. The books themselves work, just not able to obtain them

    1. Sweet thanks for the quick update, techoverlord are u trying old method of making books? as shown in his live stream there’s a new method of making books, if you tried the new way and it didn’t work then… idk haven’t tried it myself but will soon.

  3. I’m having the same problem as the person above! 🙁 It won’t let me create any descriptive books 🙁 and it wont let me see the symbols from a descriptive book I spawned in creative after going to that age. I hope you can fix this.

  4. Thanks so much for your hard work and getting this out. Been looking forward to it for a while now 🙂

  5. hmmm i got a descriptive book but idk how to make a linking book :S….. dont wanna go in w/o a linking book

      1. I cant seem to get any of it to work. Linking pannel?? Cant find it in nei to get recipie to craft one. Put blank paper into book binder and got a blank page but get no descriptive book. Any forum with further guidance available. TIA for any help.

          1. Ty So much! I do have it working now. I am a bit concerned tho by the jibberish that appears on my console now tho. Did not do this before I put in Mystcraft. I have a pastebin of it if you care to see whats happening. it types in heyheyheyheyheyheyheyheyheyhey damage damage damage over and over even while minecraft is idle. You can email me for the pastebin page link or if you wish I can put it here.
            Again, I do so love your mod, but this is a bit unnerving. I dont know if anyone else has this happening or its just me.

          2. Never mind was not your mod, was another one called show durability. All is well again.

  6. The “linking panel” doesn’t show up in the NEI or the creative menu as an item at all, nor is there an apparent NEI recipe for the linking book.

    1. NEI didn’t quite get the linking book’s recipe. It’s a custom recipe item, so I don’t really blame it.
      Linking panels should be spawnable from the Mystcraft pages tab.

  7. what is the crafting recipe for linking panels? Also I can make descriptive books now, but still no link books.

  8. Hmmm… the new system is not complicated – if you know what to do.

    This is what I have figured out so far:

    Link Panels: paper + ink (put them in Ink Mixer)
    Descriptive Book: Link Panel + leather (Binder)
    Linking Book: Leather + Link Panel (normal crafting and then right click in the world to link it to that world.

    Now my issue is that I do not see any of the pages of mystcraft. The creative spawn notebook is also not available, not sure if it should be.

    Do you still have librarians as villagers ?

    I have not explored everything yet (at work) so will check it out when I get home. Thank you for the greta update and keep up the good work.

  9. Will the Link Modifier ever be in the game again? Maybe for balance it could be crafted by rare materials found inside forgotten libraries?

    1. You should just download the .zip (or .jar) and drop it into the “mods” folder inside your minecraft client. This procedure is valid for almost all mods except Forge (you drop it into jar) and OptiFine.

    2. ummm as xcompwiz said you put this in the mod folder. there are some launchers which does not require you to mess with the jar folder when adding mods, just put these mods in their designated folder.
      i believe this is a forge based mod so you will need forge universal in its appropraite place.
      you can go to minecraft forums to look at the launchers they have available. i used multi-mc, the explanation on how to use it can be found along with it.

  10. Wahooooo! It’s been so long since I’ve gotten the chance to use this mod again! Now I can go jack wild with using this mod again!

  11. I have a cool idea for a good addition to dimension control + creation, gravity modifiers 🙂
    So if you want a dimension with low gravity(say.. it allows you to jump 3 blocks high with no potions) for a space base

  12. A lot of the items doesn’t have an actual recipe on NEI like the link modifier and a lot of the items needs to be obtained from creative…

    1. All required items are obtainable without creative, NEI just doesn’t recognize the custom crafting recipe for linkbooks and can’t see how crafting of linkpanels or descriptive books works. There is an NEI plugin available on the Mystcraft Forums.

      1. And has the recipe for Linking book changed ? Or is it just conflicting with my order mods ?

  13. When I try to make an age i cant even write symbols into the book and still have it work 🙁

    1. Link Panel – FIRST
      Descriptive Pages – Next (see wiki/forums / xcomp’s twitch tv for more info)

  14. My favorite mod is confusing again… Better learn all the new mechanics! Thanks for the update XComp!

  15. Mystcraft does not alter the biome generation, correct? (I.E. making its own biomes or altering biome coding / structure.) I’m getting several biomes composed entirely of Lapis Lazuli Ore Blocks instead of dirt or stone.

  16. Hey. I was trying to make my own (private) custom modpack on my Mac, and everything was working perfectly fine, until I installed the latest version of MystCraft ( First time I tried it, I got extreme lag, and when my game froze, I exited out and tried a second time. I got extreme lag issues, like before, but my mouse was frozen (batteries weren’t dead, it worked fine after this), and my computer couldn’t log out or anything, so I had to force shutdown the Mac. All of the mods that I have installed are Forge mods, so I can’t think of an explanation to why this happened. Thanks for reading, and hopefully, you can somehow resolve the issue (all other versions of MystCraft worked perfectly fine). I absolutely love your mod, and it is a shame that I cannot use it at the current time.

    1. Beats me. I really have no idea here. I’d need more information to make an informed decision, and since there were no crashes, it’s hard to know where to look. Try checking the logs and go to the Mystcraft forums if you find anything. 🙂

    2. I can report that I’m having a similar problem, and that it only occurs when I’m running both Mystcraft & Biomes o’ Plenty, which causes Java to lag out totally. Are you running BoP, and have you tried removing it? This is with the current version of Mystcraft, BoP 0.5.5, and Forge
