You could always make an age that has the same design as the overworld but with a flaw to create decay. Then start from there.
Yeah it works when I placed them in an Age but not in the Overworld so I'll have to do that.

I'd like to point to this awesome mod I found.

Monster Spawn Highlighter

It's client side, so you can install it and use in any server.

With a hotkey, it highlights those floor blocks where the light is low enough that monsters can spawn. Works also in daylight, telling you where they'll spawn during nighttime.

That sounds very very useful, actually.

I've been looking for it my whole life (slight exaggeration). I guess I never knew the right keywords :P

Monster Spawn Highlighter

I've been using Zombe's modpack for spawn highlighting.

Zombe's mods are rather hard to integrate with other mods, and fiddly to configure, so I might try this one.  It's just... at a glance, it looks ugly.


Edit: link changed to Peewee's corrected version per following post.  (And yeah, the minecraft forums' programming is kind of weird.)

We live atop a mountain of corpses. The Earth is swimming in humans, above and below the ground, so when I see you trying to raise the dead, I'm torn. On the one hand, I recognize your despair. On the other hand, do you really want to spend the rest of the week fending off a zombie apocalypse as the Earth vomits up her dead? AGAIN? Come on, man, think this through: every time you try this, we end up fighting zombies. I hate zombies. Just put the syringe down.

Minecraft forum handles forum thread links strangely, so I fixed it... What's not to understand?

Huh, I thought you fixed the normal link and changed it into a redirect to the main page, so I was wondering what deep meaning it held. :P

Turns out I mixed up the two links, since I tabbed them.

I found Zombe's first, then I found the second one.

It's actually not ugly at all. Just blue rectangles on top of blocks that show spawn points.

One glitch it has is that the hotkey is recognized even when chatting, so you could end up inadvertently turning it on and off.

Also... this one just goes into the Mods folder.

The monster spawn highlighter guy also made an auto-stacking utility!
This must be really great for all people with slow computers.

On note about frameships and mega-frameships - the key is to fracture it up.  You basically have two traits that work together to allow for mega-frameship operation.  1: Frames only make attached blocks, but not secondhand attached blocks.  2: A frame with a cover on it, touching another frame, will not pull the second frame, though this WILL cause issues with how the motors push it.

I've been doing a bit of research in how to make extra-sized frameships and how to get them to behave correctly.  With creative application of panels, covers, non-frame blocks, and especially sticky pistons, you can achieve some very fun results.

... by fun results, would you mean a functioning to-scale Krogath?

No? Maybe an oversized peewee, then? Though I guess an AK would be better... you could stick the zappy runes or what'ev from thaumcraft on the arms and call them lasers. Or use actual lasers. I guess the zappy would be for a Thor replica.

What I'm asking is has anyone made Total Annihilation stuff in minecraft yet and, if so, pictures?

Actually, I have plans to make a functional "laser" and in fact a nuclear laser.  I'll toss about some creative mode and take some pictures later.

Can't you just make mega-frameships by building multiple adjacent small frameships and having them move in sync?
