I have finally released a major update to Glixyl’s Entropy after more than one year since the last update. During that time, I was part of the Aliens vs Predator mod team and have learned much from making both 7 DayZ to Mine and Prometheus Rising. I will continue to add content and structures to this version of Entropy in a process of continuous improvement.
The latest Aliens vs Predator mod code, bug fixes and features are included. You can now travel to not only LV-223, but also LV-426. There are many new monsters and Xenomorphs to fight and lots of new tech mods!
I am working on the first Minecraft mod pack designed for VR, tentatively called Alien RiftZ. It currently supports Oculus Rift CV1 and DK2 and has roughly 70 mods. Taking place in the Aliens vs Predator Universe and is very playable. You start on Earth, and need to fight your way through portals to get to the moon of Varda and Acheron as well as to Hell itself!
Coming soon to multiple launchers! If you have a way to watch side-by-side video, you can check this out now in 3d!
Our new sci-fi horror mod pack set on the moon LV-223 Varda, from the movie Prometheus (Alien prequel) is trending page 1 of Technic! Please help us trend to #1 place on Technic by trying out the pack this weekend! This pack also has a YouTube series that is both roleplay and a tutorial, so come join the fun because the YouTube series link and the wiki is hard-coded into the main menu of Prometheus Rising.
If you don’t know how to get Prometheus Rising, just go to http://www.technicpack.net/download and choose your operating system download from Windows, MacOS or Linux.
Launch the Technic Launcher which will look like the above picture, type ‘AVP’ or ‘Prometheus’ into that search box you see on the upper left of the above image.
It will show you the Prometheus Rising mod pack in the navigation panel on the left side of the image. Select it and click Install. Congratz you are finished! If you have problems, it is probably because you need to use 64-bit Java; which is a good idea anyways to update to on Java version 8. If you have Windows, go here> http://javadl.oracle.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=207231 If MacOs, go here> https://java.com/en/download/help/mac_install.xml
Here is the YouTube series with Ulandos below, featuring one of the more action packed episodes so far:
Prometheus Rising is the official Aliens vs Predator development team’s mod pack, weaved together by yours truly. I spend some time talking about the pack and showing people how to survive, or get killed, depending on how you look at it.
Take a look at the Prometheus Rising Wiki located on this site, or by clicking the Wiki link in-game from the bottom right Wiki link on the main menu screen.
In this new YouTube series, we role-play and have some laughs and scares. Creatures from the movie Prometheus (prequel to 1979’s Alien made in 2012). Check the series out and give Ulandos a subscribe for me please. Also if you haven’t tried out Prometheus Rising, Ulandos has a tutorial video about how to install it from the Technic platform. This method can be used for all my mod packs on Technic.
Finally, here is the introduction to the series if you wish to watch that as well.
In the tradition of delivering content over the holidays, here is Aliens vs Predator: Prometheus Rising on the Technic platform. AliensVsPredator.org and Glixyl.org have teamed up to bring you the most terrifying sci-fi horror experience for Minecraft ever conceived!
As the ships civilian science officer (and crew in multiplayer or LAN), you are adept at many sciences including chemistry and computer science. You as the player must learn and use these sciences, and many more, to survive and eventually escape LV-223 (Varda).
As you complete each quest and its associated tasks, you will be given a choice to receive either a partial heart (life) or an item. Most of the time, it is wiser to take the hearts; but sometimes you will want to take the item reward for one reason or another. For instance, if you like the idea of making your own village of humans on Varda; you would want to take the villager spawn eggs reward for the quest called “Let There Be Light!” (Lumium crafting quest) instead of the 3/4 heart. In the same way, Earth animals don’t spawn on Varda so you will need to either take the spawn eggs as quest rewards (once you reach that quest) or try to discover alternate ways of creating those Earth resources while on Varda.
Hydration – the water on Varda is not fit for drinking and must be purified through boiling in a furnace or cauldron. A Camel Pack may be crafted as a way of staying hydrated long-term.
Air Quality – the air on Varda is only breathable while in the vacinity of trees with leaves. While mining, you will need to craft a Respirator and air filters so that you can breathe for long periods of time underground. Another alternative is to carry logs and leaves with you and set up ‘breathing stations’ underground while mining. The use of torches, furnaces and the proximity to lava will also quickly deplete air quality in an area.
Starvation – food on Varda is scarce, so you must quickly master the art of fishing or quickly develop agriculture. Fishing is actually the quicker route, which the quest called “Teach a Man to Fish” will illustrate.
Hammerpede – snake-like creatures typically found close to the Engineer’s Ampules and the mysterious black goo
Protomorph (Deacon) – originally the product of an Engineer impregnated by a Trilobite, these monsters are very fast, can climb vertical surfaces and charge at you
Trilobite – can climb vertical surfaces like a spider and has a leaping attack. watch for these things dropping down onto your head from above
Deacon Shark – there are rare ores and fish to be found in the watery depths, but beware of the creatures that hunt there; for they might think of you as dinner
Yautja (Predator) – deadly and fast, these hunters want your head as a trophy. if you show them submission though, they might let you live.
Beserker Yautja (Mr. Black) – a boss Predator
Engineer – mysterious beings that were the reason for the Prometheus’ original mission
Space Jockey (Engineer with space helmet)
Weather – High wind, hail and tornadoes are to be avoided; but do not destroy blocks. Be careful as a strong gust of wind can carry you away or smash you against the rocks.
Silica Storms – once every morning a silica storms happens in this vicinity of Varda. Take cover to avoid getting hurt.
Varda Trees – trees dot the landscape and produce wood like regular trees would
Geodes – geodes are found everywhere on Varda and contain valuable minerals, as well as the mysterious black goo
Copper – most commonly found ore, located at all altitudes on Varda
Bauxite (Aluminum) – commonly found ore, located below 96Y
Silicon – found only below 48Y
Lithium – found only below 48Y. After refining, lithium becomes unstable
Earth, Nether, End Resources – Earth resources such as redstone, gold, lapis and other materials can be gained by using a sieve (follow the quest book) by sifting materials such as dirt, gravel, sand and dust. Craft a Hammer to crush cobble into gravel, gravel into sand, sand into dust. Sift the dust for rare resources, or use it to create new materials in a composting barrel.
The AVP mod team, which I am a part of, has a new diabolical creation- the Deacon Shark! [AVP] Prometheus Rising is coming out very soon to Minecraft on the Technic Platform, which takes place on the moon of LV-223 Varda. Follow @glixyl and @Ri5ux on Twitter for more details.
