The Runic Dust Mod. [FORGE]
Get Embed Code
Level 51 : Grandmaster Modder
This is a mod I've been working on for a little while because I thought it'd be a neat idea.
It's still not quite done, but I thought I'd get some opinions on what I've got so far.
Basically, this mod adds dust with which you can form runes on the ground.
Right clicking with the runic tome will activate the rune. If it has the proper sacrifices, it will do something cool
See The MinecraftForums Thread for instructions and details!
Please do check there because I usually forget to update here at Planet Minecraft
Requires the latest recommended Minecraftforge with FML

Update #9 : 08/20/2012 12:33:58 pm8/20/12
-Updated to v1.3.2
-Got off my lazy bum and decided to say its not WIP anymore
-Separated client runes from server runes so that runes installed on the server will be downloaded to the client upon joining (Do not worry about security, the only things it 'downloads' are graphical information, which is discarded by the end of the session)
-Added API for adding new dust types, however old dust items will need to be updated
-You can update them either by placing them in the world or just crafting them 1:1 for their updated counterpart. No hassle.
-Dusts already placed in the world from the old version will automatically update.
-Added (slightly wonkey) procedural generation of lexicon entries. This should make it easier for 3rd party rune makers and for the server to control a client's rune list. All lexicon pages will be generated during runtime (if they do not exist) and placed into the .minecraft/dust_pages/ folder.
-Switched over to forge's infinite terrain sprite system
-Nerfed lumberjack chances for doubling
-Added effect to lumberjack: now chops down trees within an variable distance.
-Bumped up spirit tools' max uses from 24 (below wood:59 and gold:32) to 131 (same as stone)
-Changed Campfire rune: Will always return the smelted item immediately if the stacksize equals 1, any more and it will burn. Has a very small chance of doubling the smelted return.
-Added ability to change the color of beacon runes with dyes.
-Fixed the beacon so that low light levels around the rune will not dim it.
-Separated the beacon texture from the normal game texture for texture-pack reasons.
-Fixed compression loop with sacrifice negate. Really? You had to try this?
-Fixed powered runes not actually changing color based on fuel level
-Fixed powered runes so they properly check fuel limits when adding fuel.
-Fixed a bug with trap runes though it may not have been a bug in the last released version, I'm not sure
-Dusts can now be placed on flipped half-slabs and stairs
-Added ability to list the author of the rune design in the tome GUI
-Set max stack size for tomes to 1
-Change: The tome/lexicon only display runes allowed by the server now.
Update #8 : 07/03/2012 2:15:13 pm7/03/12
-Added Forge and SMP versions
-Now using FML (forge mod loader)
-Retained a Non-forge version, but it is untested so please report anything to me.
-Added descriptions to the runic tome.
-Reduced obelisk and lift wall sacrifices
-Changed the names for most runes so that they sound cooler :P
-Fixed a rendering thing that has been bugging me with the rune's sparks where they would render behind various things (forge version)
-Config file to disable individual runes
-Ops can still use disabled runes
-Sprites are derptastic. Avoid / disable them
-If using other mods, I would recommend disabling the Timelock rune because it will almost definitely cause bugs. Especially with other mods.
-Fixed etching block loop crashes when using fluids
-Fixed bounce rune in smp
-Fixed Earth Sprite crash
-Fixed crash when activating runes ("getNextEntityDustID" Error)
Update #7 : 06/16/2012 4:24:49 pm6/16/12
-Changed dust recpies again. Also included ability to combine two different plant materials in the recipe for plant dust (ex: 1xCoal + 1xLeaves + 1xSapling)
-Added a gui to the tome (but not the lexicon) shift+right click will open up a way to view all runes. Left click to advance page, right click to go back.You can also change pages with the direction keys.
-When in creative mode, you can right click with the tome to use it like a scroll (placing the dust of the current page)
-Added ability to place dust on glass
-Added creative-only item to negate rune sacrifices (except those with variable sacrifices ie spawner-reassign)
-Added feature to Wisdom rune: Right clicking it will pause the rune and pour all its stored wisdom into you so that you may see how much it contains without destroying it
-Added ability to lift tile entities with the Lift Earth rune
-(kind of)Added Powered Rune category: Runes that require a constant supply of food or fuel.
-See the Rune Information List link to see all runes, all those with an asterisk(*) are of this category
-Added ocelots, villagers, and a couple other missing mobs from the mob drops list
-Added: Items being held safe by the runic dust (preventing despawning) don't bob
-Added Rabbit Hole, Eternal Flame, Blinding Fog, Hunter Vision, Eggifier, and Power Relay runes.
-Change: Replaced the info page with a very arrogant self-promotion page, since the info page is no longer relevant with the gui layout(Expect bugs! Only tested with vanilla tile entities!)
-Changed torch rune features: Now if a piece of flint is sacrificed with it, it becomes a beacon.
-Change: Rebalanced sacrifice requirements for everything
-Changed Fire Sprite rune design. Existing Fire Sprite runes will not be reanimated because of this.
-Fixed every single freaking lexicon image. Goddang. You better be welcome.
-Change: Cage rune no longer entraps the player
-Change: Slowed down the Fire Rain rune slightly to maybe reduce lag (unlikely by much)
-Change: Bumped up the level rune
-Fixed and altered void rune: Now it will add to the void inventory whatever is placed on it and will only dispense when there is nothing on it.
-Fixed and altered Bait rune: Any mobs being attracted to it are too distracted to attack you. Unfortunately it doesn't effect mobs that don't utilize the new AI system though.
-Fixed how farm rune leaves a radius where it doesn't put crops
-Fixed scroll placement not placing on dead dust
-Fixed cage rune
-Fixed Buffer rune design so that it matches the forum picture/lexicon image
-Fixed the beam effects turning black after game restart
-Fixed obelisk rune, again.
-Fixed dawn and dusk: Now you can have several dawn/dusk runes waiting for night/day simultaneoulsy. For example, draw out and activate a 10 dawn runes and every night for 10 nights it will fast forward to day.
-Fix: Rewrote the etching render system from scratch. Significate increase. On my computer I got 100 blocks without noticing a single change in framerate
-Fix: Etchings now have no problem rendering grass properly.
Update #6 : 04/28/2012 1:18:45 pm4/28/12
-Updated to 1.2.5
-Update Decorative version to 1.2.5
-added earth sprite: surrounds you with 8 pieces of glass that will float around you idly. When you stand still and crouch, they will all collect around you to form a small barrier.
-added terrain lift rune: encircling an area a line of clay (clay filled ruts) and then activating this rune with a live sacrifice on top will make the specified area lift up into the sky
-added option to crouch while right clicking a lexicon which will turn the page forward instead of back (helpful for creative mode so you dont break it)
-added magical flames that surround powerful runes (right now only sarlacc)
-added option to crouch while right clicking dust which will remove it (helpful for creative mode so you dont break it)
-added affect to torch rune: if dust made of lapis and above or contains any blaze at all, it will become a marker rune instead, which will create a beam of light high in the sky to see from miles around. Inspired by ALL_YOUR_BASE's idea
-added: XP storage rune now collects xp orbs that touch it, could prove useful in combination with sarlacc
-added: Obelisk rune now lifts you, waits for the top block to be destroyed, then goes back down. Now it's actually useful. If you still want the obelisk to stay up, just wait a (long)while or destroy the rune
-added: you can now fill etchings with solid blocks as hard as or less than gravel (dirt,sand,clay,etc)
-added ability to dig out the fillings of an etching by right-clicking with a shovel if the filling's block type meets the specifications above (yields nothing)

-fixed sarlacc: made it actually kill entities instead of needing you to kill them, for automation's sake
-fixed sarlacc: drops are now consumed and used to keep the rune fed for a very very very short time, like a 10th of a second per item (so if you can't get a mob to it to keep it fed, throw it some items, however it yields no xp)
-fixed a slight graphical bug with the beam of certain runes
