Glixyl’s Entropy being updated to Minecraft 1.12.2

I have tried to update Glixyl’s Entropy many times in the last couple of years. It never was possible because of mod availability, but recently all this has changed and enough of the mods in Entropy have been updated to Minecraft 1.12.2 or replaced with new mods of similar functionality. I have been experimenting and profiling a new build of Glixyl’s Entropy and wanted to share some screen captures of the progress, plot information, and timing for release. If you aren’t familiar with Entropy, you can watch quite a few people playing it over the years on YouTube.

Here is the plot:

David, the synthetic life form created by Weyland Yutani corporation, wasn’t headed to establish a new colony on Origae-6 at the end of Covenant. Instead, he ends up heading to Earth, where he continues the genetic experimentation started on Paradise (where he created the Xenomorphs). David possesses powerful Weyland Yutani terraforming technology, which he uses in combination with the Engineer’s Black Mutagenic Goo to transform Earth into his own twisted laboratory. You must master this challenging landscape if you wish to survive for very long, not to mention the storms, land slides, cave-ins and attacking Aliens and monsters.

(check out this interesting article on IGN for Alien background information/speculation)

As always, Entropy is a physics/disaster/space sandbox first, a mod pack second. I am not too worried about people becoming overpowered, or using supposedly overpowered mods, because I am going to throw a lot of chaos at them. Also some of the technical progression will require unlocking lower tier technologies before being able to build higher tech ones (unless you just want to cheat a bunch of tech and weapons in and blow everything up, which is a perfectly fine way to play Entropy)

In Glixyl’s Entropy, there are realistic block physics, tornadoes, dust storms, cyclones, space travel, computer programming, robotics, thirst management, guns, helicopters, planes, trains, automobiles, Aliens, Predators, Engineers, all kinds of modded monsters, dynamic sounds and post processing effects, a realistic fishing system, and just a whole bunch more.

When will the new version of Entropy be released? My best guess is that the beta version arrives before Spring at https://www.technicpack.net/modpack/entropy-by-glixyl.72573

Howto: Install Technic Packs for Minecraft

In this article, you will learn how to install the Technic Launcher for Minecraft; which is a free download and is safe to use.  All you need is a valid Minecraft account and a PC running Windows or a Mac.  Linux is also supported if you are so inclined.

To start, visit https://www.technicpack.net/download and pick your operating system.

Once you have downloaded it, find the downloaded file.  Should be called ‘TechnicLauncher.jar’ and be in your Downloads directory on both Windows and Mac.  Double-click the file to launch it and install using the default settings.

Then, login using your Minecraft username and password.  (newer Minecraft accounts may require you to use your email address as your username)

Once you login to the launcher, it will open and you can navigate to the Modpacks tab at the top of the launcher by clicking on it.

screen-shot-2017-03-05-at-9-41-12-amIn the search box in the upper left, you can look for packs by name or by metadata.  For instance, when I type the word Alien into the search box we can see the top 3 mod packs with Alien content (all three are made by me btw).

Select the pack you want and click the Install icon on the lower right.  In this case, I picked Prometheus Rising; which is a space horror adventure experience set 54 years after the movie Prometheus.  I recently remastered it in expectation for Alien: Covenant being released May 19th.

Once the pack is installed, click the Play button on the lower right of the launcher and enjoy.
