So... you're aspiring to create worlds? Mystcraft - An Overview: Is the Overworld not satisfying enough for you, or were you looking for a whole world that was bent to your will? Mystcraft just might be for you, and luckily learning it isn't as hard as it may seem. With Mystcraft, you're able to create a world for almost any need you may have. If you need a place to mine ores and not ruin your world, you can create a cave world with a higher percentage of ores. If you need a world to gain experience in, you can create a world that is eternally night and completely flat. Maybe you need a world to power your base, so you create a world that is an infinite lava ocean! Whatever your needs are, they can most likely be solved with this mod! Getting Started: The two things you need to start your Mystcraft adventures are an Ink Mixer, and a Book Binder. asdfsdafas Ink Mixer- sadfasdfasdfasfdasfdasdfasdfsdafasfdasfdasBook Binder- 1 glass bottle, 2 wooden planks, 5 stonefasdfsdafasdfas3 iron ingots, 5 wooden planks Next, you need to make ink and paper. You'll need to gather glass for glass bottles, ink sacs, leather, and sugarcane along with having a source block of water to fill the bottles with. Ink Vial- 1 water bottle, 2 ink sacs You should make numerous ink vials (they stack up to 16), and put them into the ink mixer along with the paper you just made. Both are loaded onto the left side, paper on to bottom and ink vials on the top. On the bottom right, there should then be something called a Link Panel. Make two of these, and move over to your book binder. When you make a Mystcraft world, it presents itself as a book called a Descriptive Book. These are the worlds that you will enter. Now that you're at your book binder, put one link panel into the gray area, and one leather into the small box at the top left. In the black bar at the very top, you can name the book if you so choose. If you decide against naming it, it will be named Age ###. Now that you've put the link panel and the leather in, there should be an orange book in the top right box. After removing it, open up your inventory and in the crafting grid, place one link panel and one leather. This will make an Unlinked Linking Book. These are necessary for returning from your world. Once you have that, choose a spot that is safe to link it to (right-click to link). This is the spot that you will return to. Next, you need to make two lecterns or book stands. I personally prefer book stands, as they are slightly cheaper to make, however I'll include the recipe for both. asdfasdfa Book Stand- asdfasdfasdfasdfasdfdasdfsadfasdfsLectern- 2 sticks, 1 wooden plank adsfasdfsadfasdfsadfas6 wooden planks, 1 stick Now that you have a place to put your books, place 1 book stand or lectern down and place the descriptive book onto it. Then, click onto the large box on the right page. This will then take you to the world that you've just created. At this point you could be wondering how this could be making a world that is customized to your needs, and you should be. Making a world with those specifics comes a bit later, after you've collected pages. Complete customization is later though, right now, you need to get the pages to customize the worlds with, which is why we're making a random world. Once you spawn into the world, you'll be on a 5x5x1 stone platform. These are usually at 0,0, however they sometimes spawn elsewhere. It's good to get into a habit of making a waypoint at the spawn of your Mystcraft world. Now it's time to check for instabilities. If there are meteors falling from the sky, random explosions everywhere, or decay (you'll know it when you see it), it's best to get out of there and try again. Especially if it's meteors! However if your world is safe, you are then free to roam around and check it out. Each world is quite unique, and there can be random structures or colors that seem out of place, but that's all part of Mystcraft! Once you're in your world and you've waypointed your spawn, you want to be looking for structures called Libraries. These are small/medium sized cobblestone structures that are almost impossible to miss. They're slightly elevated, have four walls, and a slightly slanted roof. Inside are many bookshelves and lecterns with pages on them. You should collect these pages.
