Hiatus Notice

Hey there. This is a notice that I’ll be going on a modding hiatus up until June 22. That being the date of my end-of-year Math exam. So do not expect any updates during that time, except under the circumstance that a gamebreaking bug or change in forge/minecraft is encountered that does not require a…

Stuff you won’t see in psi

It’s that time again ain’t it? This post follows a similar premise to “Stuff you won’t see in botania“: things that people keep asking/telling/demanding me to add, and that I have absolutely no interest in adding. I think it should be known by now that I love throwing wrenches in people’s plans. I believe that…

1.8 Botania Permission Statement

I didn’t think I’d have to do this, but I guess CurseForge requires a proper written permission statement, so… As of today, 18 of February 2016, williewillus (CurseForge member williewillus) may post on CurseForge, and monetize through the Curse Rewards Program, modified versions of the Botania mod, built by him for the purpose of his fork, under…

Sins of a Solar Empire, or The Passive Generation Conundrum

This post has nothing to do with the RTS game of the same name. I just thought it was punny. Any Botania player who isn’t a goldfish or doesn’t live under a rock, at this point, is more than likely to have heard of the raging internet war (it’s not as bad as I make it…

But it takes effort

Short post this time, I want to talk a bit about a response I often give to suggestions and why I do so. So let’s do that. Sometimes the best answer to a solution is that “it takes effort”. This isn’t just my little piece of the sloth pie talking  (although my piece of the…

(Repost) Why mods break after an update

This is a copy-paste from a reddit comment I did a few months ago. Which you can find here. It just happened to come to mind that this would be a much better place for it to lie for archival and linking purposes than my account, so here.   Mods break from update to update…

A semi-technical explanation of why you shouldn’t allocate too much RAM to minecraft

I see this a lot. People assume that giving the game more leeway in terms of memory (RAM) usage makes it run better. This is actually not true, especially the common conception that “more ram = better fps”. So let me give you a somewhat technical explanation of why this is the case. I’m no…

Stuff you won’t see in botania

Ok, I’m tired. Now and then somebody comes to me with an idea for the nth time that I’ve rejected (n-1) times, and as a decent portion of the internet is consisted of self-entitled brats, I often have to explain to them why I’ve rejected their idea. It’s interesting because it’s not even theirs. If I’ve had…

The Problem Child

You as an elementary school teacher observe some of your students’ behaviour. When child A is not around, you notice child B’s mood to be much better than normal. You then make the assumption child B being around child A is bad. You go report to the council that very finding. A few days later…
