Space Station for Galacticraft

(don't forget to follow the instructions on how to install below)

NEWS: Hey! Check out my "A base on Mars" pre-release announcement

This is a space station that evolved from an experiment while testing Galacticraft, a mod that allows you to explore the solar system in your own spaceship. Now it is a functional, fully furbished and detailed space station.

This station consists mainly of:
  • A rocket launch deck
  • Workplace and Office
  • Oxygem farm and solar panels with distribution and electrical wiring
  • Extra-Vehicular Activity (E.V.A.) exits
  • Air-locks and hallways interconnecting rooms, all with a view of the space.

(skip to 9:34)

If you want and feel couragious, watch my [very bad, mind you] presentation of the station here: http://www.twitch.tv/ezerarch/c/3549838.

Download the world and follow the instructions. It's a modded world.

How to install my space station


To be able to use it, install the mods listed below, essentially Galacticraft, and follow the instructions. You can opt out some mods if you don't want certain features. If you have questions or something went wrong, ask away.

You can play my world as-is or use only my space station in an existing world save:
I just want to play your world as-is:

  1. Download and install the mods listed below. They are Forge mods, save them all in "mods" folder;
  2. Download the world save and extract the zip, it will give you an EzerArch Space Station directory/folder;
  3. Move it to .minecraft/saves
  4. Launch Minecraft and select the world, you will spawn inside the station. If you don't, use /dimensiontp playername to teleport to the station.
  5. You can rename the world save and my station. It will not break anything. Done! :)

I want to use *only* the station in an existing world save:

  1. Download and install the mods listed below. They all are Forge mods, save them all in "mods" folder;
  2. Download the world save and extract the zip, it will give you an EzerArch Space Station folder;
  3. Open the EzerArch Space Station folder;
  4. Move DIM_SPACESTATION2 into a world save of your choice. If there's already a DIM_SPACESTATION2, change the number of the folder that you are moving.
  5. Move spacestation_2.dat to data folder of the world save of your choice. If there's already a spacestation_2.dat, change the number of the dat that you are moving to match with my space station's folder.
  6. Launch Minecraft and select the world.
  7. Once the world is loaded, use the command /dimensiontp playername to teleport there or use a rocket.
  8. You can rename my station. It will not break anything. Done! :D

4 Essential Mods (may damage the structure if missing):

For Minecraft 1.6.4


Due to changes in Galacticraft 1.6.4, the space station can no longer keep the oxygen system up steadily, so that the NPCs and players without oxygen gears will get hurt and suffocate. I tried to fix but I would need to tear down important parts of the structure. You can however remove the NPCs or edit the station.

I'm going to do something that nobody else has tried to do: I'm gonna literally use your world ALONE XD (No mods besides GC3 :D Oh and the resource pack cos it looks f***ing awesome)

P.S. You don't deserve a diamond for this... Diamonds aren't worth enough to warrant being given for it lol. I believe that you should be given something much more valuable, in vanilla: A nether star :D Cos diamonds are just bland compared to this (I haven't even loaded it up yet XD)

"but ingame"... that's why I told to use the resource pack I recommended. I don't think space station will look good with cobblestone and wooden planks, unless it's so huge the textures would blend.

it's really cool!

It looks like the person who designed the pack for it is lazy and unresponsive, which is a shame!

keep up the good work!

Uggg.  It reminds me of mine on voltz.  It was so big and so powerful!!!! But then... the owner left and a new owner arived... and he deleted everything!!! He banned space, power armor, missiles, and every other thing that made it a mod pack.

I redownloaded and tried both versions 1.6.2 and 1.6.4 and went from SS to Overworld and back to SS via /dimensiontp <player> and by rocket. It's all okay.

Are you sure you were using the correct galacticraft version? It was reported that some versions *were* deleting the stations.

Also, make sure the spacestation_2.dat is in the 'data' folder.
Edit Reply Delete
What version of Galacticraft is needed to insure this works correctly.

UPDATE: So I changed to the version of Galacticraft and I found I am still having this problem were when I leave the station to the overworld and fly back it dissapears. I checked and the files are in all the right places. This also happens when I make a world of my own and i import in your SS.

Galacticraft 1.6.4-2.0.10.972 or later.

Please follow my instructions: "How to install my space station" and "Required mods and texture packs" in my post.
Edit Reply Delete
So I followed Both instructions very carefully for
"I just want to play your world as-is" 
and
"I want to use *only* the station in an existing world save"
On two sepreate tries and found they both do not work , Mind you I have the correct version of 1.6.4 Galacticraft and the other mods required I even started fresh from scratch. Do you think maybe the space station map itself is bound to your character only? Or maybe Forge is affecting this change?


UPDATE: Have you tried doing this procedure on a different account to see if it will work the same. I feel that maybe it works for you because the world file recognizes your player save and loads the SS. I read your comment section and it appears after your release of the world no one has commented with feedback whether it worked or not.

UPDATE2: On "Your" world save were you are force spawned in the SS, I took a look around and noticed you removed the most important block that gives the SS it's entity, The Station name block. That blue block thats in the middle of the first room when you make a new station. This is why me and probably your fanbase is wondering why when they leave the station, or attempt to go from overworld to the SS they cant find it. Its because you removed the most important block of the SS.

I don't think the block is the problem, it's a minor detail. The space station name and other relevant data are saved in the dat file, they can be seen in the NBTExplorer.

But still you have the main point: NBTExplorer also showed I'm still the owner and there's a list of allowed users, obviously you are not included. I've never used the NBTE in my GC worlds and would have never thought of it.

Honestly, sorry for this huge inconveniece.

I can send you a SS being you the owner. Would you mind telling me your username (via PM or here)? I'll be glad editing the data file in the NBTExplorer and send it to you. Try /ssinvite <your_username> meanwhile (use this command in the SS) and see if the game returns an error or if it works.

I'll have a talk with micdooble8 about the issue and make it so the space stations can be trully distributable.
Edit Reply Delete
It's all good man, my username is Professor_Merlin






UPDATE: I tried the /ssinvite and it doesnt work either :/
Edit Reply Delete
UPDATE (VERY IMPORTANT): I found out a way to get it so the dimension doesnt dissapear!!!. I used NBTedit explorer and Ingame to edit the owner of the station and used NBTedit ingame to change the value of the DIM_STATION2 from 0 to 2. It was wierd when I looked at the dimension value it was set to 0. So i switched it to 2 which was the correct Dimension setting and boom. i was able to invite myself AND /dimensiontp AND use a rocket.

Let me make a question: how did you use NBTedit in-game to edit the station/dimension? If I'm not wrong, NBTedit In-game can be used only on tile-entities and the player.
