StrExplorer a Instant Structures Mod [+40,000 Structures] [1.7/1.8/1.9/1.10/1.11/1.12]

Level 90 : Overlord Programmer

How StrExplorer a Instant Structures Mod works

Search tens of thousands of structures
The mod searches 30,000 Minecraft projects in a fraction of a second. Projects are sorted by relevance and beauty. Furthermore, they can be filtered and sorted by other criteria such as popularity or number of blocks.
Memory structure
Found structures can be saved. All you need to do is push a button. Et voila, the structure can be placed. Without you having to leave Minecraft.
Place structures
All stored structures can be placed. Choose the position and you're done. Or choose more advanced settings.
Scan your own structures
Select an area and save it. Ideal for sharing structures with friends and duplicating them. The .str format is used for this. It contains more information like builder, name or offset.
Manage structures
One of the most important parts. Interesting projects can be "favored" and "saved". Collections are projects that have more than one structure. This is especially advantageous for variations of buildings. Structures can be placed. Show information such as size, number of blocks, builder or number of downloads.
How Structures Are Presented Is the Key To The Best Instant Structures Mod. At this point, ISM is like a music player that has a large collection of music

Update #162 : 12/08/2017 12:21:05 pm12/08/17

-new: ISM can convert Schematics with more than 175,000,000 blocks-new: ISM can place structures with more than 175,000,000 blocks-new: world is automatically exited once a structure has been placed.-new: ISM converts all blocks from Schematics to newer Minecraft versions
when using an older Minecraft version. In this case, newer blocks are
replaced by suitable blocks. As a result, structures with blocks from
1.12 are also displayed well in 1.7.10.-fixed: ISM writes a log every time a block does not exist.-overworked: Converts Schematics much faster-overworked: Converting structures requires less memory.​%MCEPASTEBIN%

Update #160 : 11/03/2017 2:41:12 pm11/03/17

-New: Scan your own structures with the new interface
-New: more feedback if something went wrong
-New: remove local structures by deleting them from the /mods/ism-2/local_strs/ folder

new interface for scanning structures:

Update #159 : 10/21/2017 11:13:26 am10/21/17

-New: 10,000 structures, ISM has more than 20,000 structures
-New: place shapes like cuboids, pyramides or spheres

The new ISM - StrExplorer : 10/07/2017 2:00:39 pm10/07/17

The new ISM - StrExplorer
Let me introduce you "The new ISM - StrExplorer". Finally the time has come to publish this update.

-upgraded search enginge: StrExplorer
-upgraded user interface
-update for Minecraft 1.12, 1.12.1, 1.12.2
-new structures

StrExplorer - the browser for searching structures
The heart of this update is the new StrExplorer, a search engine for Minecraft structures. It includes new functions to search, sort, narrow results down, manage structures.
One of these is the StrRank. Each structure has rank which mirrors how beautiful and popular it is.
StrExplorer shows results for creators and collections. Collections a bunch of structures which fit thematically. Thereby much more structures are found.
The StrExplorer needs less than half of RAM and shows more information.

User Interface
New approaching and rewriting the user interface was the greatest task for this update. All features are accessible through one window. Placing, searching and removing structures not by opening 3 windows, just by one. The GUI is much cleaner, professional, dynamic and stable.

Update for new Minecraft Versions
The heading says it all: ISM is out for Minecraft 1.12, 1.12.1, 1.12.2.
Thus ISM supports all 13 Minecraft versions from 1.7.10 to 1.12.2 which is tremendous administrative workload.

New Structures
StrExplorer browses through more than 10,000 structures. And more will be added with upcoming features.

Removing features
To take a new direction it is necessary to remove some features. That means removing provided structures. The old ISM versions had several kinds of structures. Each needed its own kind of storage, which made development complicated. Provided structures were the largest part of the jar-size.

Some features are currently disabled to facilitate a correct and enhanced implementation:
-scanning own structures
-replace and remove placed structures
-place geometric shapes
-German translation
I will work hard to add these features with upcoming updates.

What's next?
1. My personal goal is to publish regular updates. For this I will use a 2 wekk rhythm.
I study computer science and have little free time which caused the lag of updates.
2. The next updates will bring the disabled features back and add MORE structures.
3. Develop the next big thing for placing structures. I plan to roll out this update in January 2018.
4. A long-term goal is a zero-bug-tolerance for ISM. Therefore I will develop a testing library.

Ok... So i first downloaded this mod in 2015 on my old pc. I kinda forgot about it when i got a new pc. Well, now, like a year after i got my new pc, i wanted to download it again (i ´found´it again yesterday). When i downloaded the mod and opened Minecraft i noticed that basically everything was different. No structures sorted by ´Huge´ ´Insane´ and all that, u know. But most importantely... in this new menu.. thing i couldnt really find all of those great old structures. So i wanted to ask if there is any old versions of this mod where all the old structures are still in my inventory? Espeacially the star wars ones. Oh, and also in wanted to ask why the Star Wars Mod Download doesnt work anymore.

I changed the structure system a long time ago. Now you can open the StrExplorer and search for the aforementioned star ship. At the moment there 2 imperial star destroyers. 10,000 structures are added every two weeks.
Hello, I am using this mod in 1.7.10. When I use the explorer, I cant see any structures unlike the picture above (the one showing the explorer in the structures tab, I also dont have a genres subtab like the one above as well) and i was wondering if there was a older download link that i could use that has everything.
NOTE: I know that i have to download structures but sometimes I dont know what they are called pls help

I removed all default supplied structures, there are no genres anymore. So, the information above is outdated. I will update them when ISM is finished.
You can search for [all] (with [ and ]) to display all structures. Furthermore you can sort them.
Ok, I get it, but can you maybe add in a tab with the default structures, as that is why i wanted to download the mod. (obviously you don't have to)
Im using Minecraft 1.7.10.
i installed this Mod like other before into my mod-folder.
But when i start the game, i can't see any structures. Not in the menue and no structures in the Wiki/Explorer.
Help please

You can search for structures by using the search bar in the upper right corner. You can add a structure to your library by clicking the "chest button".
Your Video at YouTube shows, that i can see the Construction-Area before i build a house or something.
How do i do it? in the Explorer i can only place it somewhere and thats it.

When you place a structure there a textfields for the position. Next to them is a button "mark area" you can use this.

I forgot to pay the server bills :'-) sorry
I love this mod but I'm having a problem that maybe I'm just not familiar enough with the game to fix. When I load a structure, for some reason on quite a few of them, the floors are just. Not there. There is a void that falls into nowhere. I don't know why it does this.

I have been having lots of trouble with this mod. I just installed it for Minecraft 1.8.9 (forge). Every time I try to place a structure, nothing happens. Same with the wiki book, I right click the book and nothing happens. I looked at a lot of tutorials on how to place the structures and none helped. I pray that you will respond and be able to assist me. Thank you.

How do I update to the latest version of Minecraft, forge then ISM without losing my Instant Structures that I have placed?

Is there a video I can watch? I would be very appreciative of any help. Thanks
I just downloaded and installed for 1.11, I am unable to load a functioning world it either hangs in "building terrain" or I end up with just blue sky,I guess, unplayable. I do have several mods loaded, is their any mods you know of off hand that are incompatible with this mod? or Have you had other reports of this happening, please let me know how to fix. P.S Love this mod, my versions are not complete without it installed ) : Oh and I am using forge version 1.11- Thank you

I realize this is a client side only mod. If I don't place it on the server, I have all of the tabs there but no blocks. If I do place it on the server it crashes it. I am using just a plain forge 1.7.10 server. Just wondering if anyone got this to work on a Minecraft host.

Hey great mod! I crash when I place a huge structure though. Do you think it will help if I add some more ram? I use 3g of ram right now.

Did you reload your world before you entered it again? Does placing the structure take too long?
