Today Zach installed Not Enough Items (NEI).
He used this inside Tekkit, but has been wanting to break free of the Tekkit environment. There are mods he wants to play that aren’t in there.
We installed Forge (actually we installed this the other day when we installed SHU – Super Heroes Unlimited) and Zach copied CodeChickenCore, multipart Forge and NEI into the mods folder – all for versions 1.6.4.
You click the “show” box next to “spoiler” in the download/installation to see where to copy from.
When Zach copied the files from downloads to Mods he created shortcuts to the files instead of copying or moving.
That took a little while to figure out.
OK, now that we actually copied the files to the mods folder the NEI menu is displaying.
Unfortunately we seem to be stuck in recipe mode.
Changing to Cheat does nothing noticeable.
The item menu was also missing the “save 1/10″ on the left.
Zach’s frustration mounted. I eventually had to take the computer and have a look myself.
I tried the age old test of clicking around until I found something interesting.
It’s funny, I know computers inside and out, but know nothing of MineCraft. I had to ask Zach how to bring up the inventory list. I removed some mods, restarted, nothing.
Eventually I found my way to the “Global” button. After clicking that everything started working as expected and we were good to go.
Now he downloaded Godzilla and Frankenstein mods from the same person who made SuperHeroes Unlimited.
it took all of 60 seconds to have it copied in the right place.
As I’m typing this on my laptop, Godzilla is battling Mechagodzilla on Zach’s World and destroying everything in their paths.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Have a great weekend and Happy Modding
