Level 51 : Grandmaster Modder
I don't check this planetminecraft page as often as I do on the minecraftforums. So if it is out of date check there first!

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

-(Attempted FIX) Tried to fix deco crashes, but I could never reproduce the crash in the first place so I am not sure if it is actually fixed.
-(Attempted FIX) Tried to fix occasional load up crash, but just as above I was not able to reproduce it either, this is just an attempt.

-(FIX) Being able to place items inside ruts.

-(FIX) Fixed occasional EarthSprite glass blocks disappearing
-(FIX) Fixed EarthSprite glass blocks not solidifying on things like vine and snow (replacable blocks)
-(FIX) Debugging console spam
-(ADD) Added config for decorative ruts. This means that any solid block can be carved and any solid block may be placed inside the rut.
-(FIX) Inscription GUI darkness glitch
-(FIX) Inscription draining ink while in creative
-(FIX) Rut centers visual glitch. Each side being carved together.
-(FIX) XP not being taken for runes in survival
-(FIX) Earth Sprite Glass blocks disappearing (possibly? needs testing on an actual server)
-(FIX) Rabbit hole not placing torch

-(TWK) How inscriptions ticks are called.
-(TWK) Blank inscriptions now only stack to 1
-(Attempted FIX) Some claims to why tome loads empty. Its an old claim but maybe it had something to do with unix file structure? Either way it might be fixed, but since I could never reproduce it I cannot be sure

the mod looks awsome but when i did it i got a crash report

how do i fix it i want to use the mod
Beautiful mod. Noticing a little bugginess in 1.3.2: teleporter rune shiny effect stays red forever after the first time you teleport (I think it's supposed to turn white when it's cooled down and ready for another teleport), and no screen wobble when teleporting. Also the earth sprite doesn't seem to work (I think you know about that one though). Love all the rune possibilities though. Very very unique.
