  1. Sounds like you're only installing HEK. HEK itself doesn't provide all the tags. You'll need to manually extract them from maps. You can do so with HEK+ but the newer tool MEK is better for doing so. You can grab it here. https://github.com/Sigmmma/mek Character tag data is usually found in campaign maps as well. So you'll have to find converted PC maps or have a copy of PC yourself.
  2. 16TB Seagate Exos HDD I'm amazed that the drive with higher ratings and tolerances than the 'consumer' IronWolf Pro drives is a bit cheaper. But I guess it doesn't come with data recovery. Might be fine though.
  3. This is a cursed Minecraft mod. That kind of geometry shouldn't exist!
  4. I can imagine a comedy voice over on that clip.
  5. Because Ads are an invasive security risk. Also targeted and repetitive. Let me begin with saying that AdGuard has services for Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, a web browser extension, and a VPN. I am only covering my experience with AdGuard for Android and am aware that the experience is very lacking on iOS. What is AdGuard? The name itself may be pretty apparent but AdGuard is a paid ad-blocking service. NOW WAIT. I know a paid ad-blocking service sounds terrible as you can just use a free browser extension on PC such as uBlock or find a mobile browser with such a feature already. And if I'm going to be blunt with you then AdGuard for anything outside of Android is practically useless by which the method it does this in. The best part? You don't even need to have root access. Adguard creates a local VPN network on your device that will filter out incoming Ad domains on your device before the app gets any ad related data. This means that not only does it work in a browser but globally across your Android device within any app like games. This means that if you like using Chrome for Android for the data syncing features then you can use it without ads regardless of its lack of extensions. This also means you're protected from pop-ups from the multitude of shitty websites, f2p games, or infectious apps that hide themselves and run ads on your phone all day long. (although it won't remove said infectious apps) But AdGuard does a little bit more. While it's already creating a 'VPN' it will allow you to set a custom DNS, block trackers, block known malicious websites and coin miners, block the multitude of social media follow buttons, and allows all of this and some more to be a customized experience. Working for both Wi-fi and Mobile data experiences. Screenshots of some settings posted to Imgur (because they're rather large vertical resolution) However AdGuard isn't a perfect experience. Some apps and browsers block the use of a VPN which renders AdGuard useless. And not all ads get filtered such as playing music for free through Spotify or videos on YouTube. Sometimes they will but the mobile platform doesn't have the inspecting capabilities of a desktop browser so they're not immediately updated. AdGuard uses it's own compiled list and publicly available list of domains (which can be toggled on) to block incoming ads and extras. If you really wanted to then you could turn them all on. iOS on the other hand only works with the Safari browser as Apple has banned the use of local VPN's. Likely in regards to potential security risk of such a method intercepting your data and sending it off somewhere else. I haven't personally verified any suspicious network activities but at the very least my accounts haven't been stolen these past 2 years. If this is of any interest to you then feel free to check it out. https://adguard.com/en/license.html The license is shared across all platforms but the VPN is a different product. Keep in mind that they offer monthly and lifetime licenses. My suggestion is to just grab a lifetime license if you rock an Android.
  6. So I moved world spawn to my home area. Sorry for anyone who built a home near original world spawn. You should be fine if you have a bed and want to stay there.
  7. Torn between 5 and 6 but a decision must be made.
  8. Alright. Well I removed TinyTweaks since it actually needs to be clientsided installed as well. If not then random blocks get set to another block ID. Like all the grass became upsidedown stairs. Should've tested that.
  9. Okay I lied. The server is updated now. SleepVote disappeared so that's a bit unfortunate. LeadVillagers might work. It wasn't updated but it's probably fine? Added VoxelMaps so you can set waypoints if you have it installed. I have 46 days of the trial left. After that I don't know. Might consider switching to bedrock edition if I can my hands on an RTX card.
  10. I'll be taking the server down sometime in the afternoon PST Wednesday to update it to 1.16.3 which should be the final update until 1.17 Caves and Cliffs update. Nothing significant has changed though other than 1 new inconsequential mob and an inefficient duplication exploit patch. Mods will be update with some exceptions. SimpleHarvest is getting replaced with TinyTweaks. I believe it should work the same way with additional features while maintaining server sided only requirements with optional client side stuff. I Am Very Smart is getting removed due to instability reports for later versions.
  11. Google Pixel 4a to replace my Pixel 2. Rest in Pieces. It could've lasted another 3 years minimum but I assume some transistor in there went bad and keeps frying the touch sensing components. Took me this long to decide on it since I fucking hate every single smart phone design available right now. Not a joke, other than the painfully sharp corners of the Razer phone, it was the closest to my ideal design. If it had a 3.5mm, 1080p OLED instead of 1140p, and rounded corners it would've been perfect imo. Too bad it's also discontinued and died on Android 9 Pie. Razer definitely ain't much for product support.
  12. Hm. I guess I'll understand after I play with it then.
  13. Just not using any level of DXT or otherwise. And I can't explicitly say due to ToS at this time but I can probably alleviate compression elements. I forgot people mentioned that most texture data in MCC has been modernized and kept it it's own shared file. Sherry and Moses (I think he's left the modding scene?) would have the best information on this since they did pull said uncompressed textures out of Halo PC. I don't know how that works but I imagine the engine just compresses and delivers the textures itself hence the reason it retained the uncompressed versions. I was just hoping that the method wasn't changed in MCC and they just moved them to a new file 'zip' like archive and the uncompressed data is in there somewhere.
  14. Neat. Looking forward to it. I guess a good question is if you've tried importing an uncompressed texture? It's definitely not an ideal option in any means but I don't think it would hurt that badly if possible. I'll probably follow Skyrim modding logic and not compress normals if it ever gets to that point.
