I though of using a simular mechanic from the blocksprite where the numbers overlap the image when hovered on, I made some button sprites and would like them to turn red when hovered on (i have red versions of the sprite), is this possible easily? Arrran Weeviling 11:19, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Hover states can only be done in stylesheets. ultradude25 (T|C) at 04:39, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
Could you assist me with that? Great if you could! Arrran Weeviling 10:06, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
The only stylesheet you have access to is your user one, so there's no point, only you will see it. ultradude25 (T|C) at 10:34, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh ok, could you render this in 3d please->20px, the top is stonebricks entierly, i did not want to fill up the wiki server with a 312x312 (i think) picture of the same stonebricks! Arrran Weeviling 09:36, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Block renders

Thank you for your efforts in providing renders of some blocks. You asked if I could let you know about any remaining ones, so here they are. Blue Aercloud, Holystone Brick, Enchanted Gravitite, Zanite Block. If some rendered images for those can please be arranged, that would be wonderful. Pmw57 11:50, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I need the textures since those weren't in the texture zip you gave me.
Also I wasn't sure about the blue aercloud (since there's only the white one in the texture, it and the gold one has to be tinted by hand from the inventory image), in the inventory image it looked like the top was white, but the sides were blue. Is that just bad lighting? Or is it actually like that? ultradude25 (T|C) at 11:54, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
It shouldn't be like that, no. Can I get more details on which one appears to have a white top and blue sides?
The mechanism of the coloring is to tint them from within the game. The gold is tinted as 0xffff80, the blue as 0xccffff, the enchanted gravitite as 0xffaaff (using the iron block texture), and the zanite block is similar, using a tint of 0x9999ff Pmw57 12:03, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
File:Grid Blue Aercloud (The Aether).png The top is completely white, like the default aercloud.
I'll have to leave them till tomorrow, since the tinting will take longer. ultradude25 (T|C) at 12:32, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks - that seems to be a minecraft rendering issue, where the brightness of the top is blowing out any subtleties. We've lowered the blue aercloud tint down to 0xaaffff which fixes the color from getting blown out to white, so we have a better looking inventory icon now. Thanks for spotting that. Pmw57 13:11, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Well I've done them, although I'm not sure the colours came out correctly. It looks a bit too light. ultradude25 (T|C) at 10:39, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you sir. I've boosted the color saturation on them and they've come out great. Nice work there. Pmw57 13:27, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Page Editing Window

It seems that the shortcut buttons for the editing window are broken. I have used Mozilla FireFox and Google Chrome, both seem to have the same problem with the shortcut buttons. Can you take a look when ever you can. --Ichi (Talk) 21:23, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Curse recently redirected all the images to an external CDN, and some of the images haven't been uploaded to it. It should still work fine, it just doesn't look nice. ultradude25 (T|C) at 00:47, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Infobox animations

Hey Ultradude, any thoughts on replacing the infobox animations with the animation JS setup we've got for crafting tables/furnaces/etc.? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:48, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

I... hadn't actually thought of it. I need to add some generic styling so it will work, but otherwise it should be pretty simple, unless we want to go for comma separated instead of separate parameters, then we'd need to copy the grid template's stuff over. Starting to think we need a comma splitting template if we're going to use these everywhere. :P
The biggest issue with using separate parameters is we may not want everything in one animation (e.g. redstone repeaters), or we may not want an animation at all. Comma separated gives you full control over that, but there's a lump of code that has to come along with it. ultradude25 (T|C) at 21:23, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
That's one thing I love about SMW, it gives you a wonderful little PF called #arraymap, which is basically a #explode/#replace function that operates on the entire input, instead of one specific delimited chunk. So you can just do something like {{ #arraymap: {{{1}}} | , | $x$ | {{escaped link|$x$}} | , }} (I'm not sure how you would apply that to {{Grid}}, though, since it has to step through two list parameters simultaneously; it would work by changing the parameter structure, though (e.g. instead of |1=Dirt,Stone,Wood|2=2,,7, it would be something like |1=Dirt,2;Stone;Wood,7, then you'd just #arraymap on the semicolon and split each match on the comma if it's there, and off you go)). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:43, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Also, if this requires adjusting the script at all, it wouldn't hurt to look at adding pause/step functionality to it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:45, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Well you can already "pause" it by simply changing the class to something other than 'animated', then it won't find the element on the next interval and won't advance it to the next frame. This is what's already done on the GUI grid templates (try hovering over one).
I assume by "step" you mean pressing a button to advance it? That could be added (just copy the same thing but stick it in a click event, instead of an interval; although reversing would need a bit of modification), not sure what we'd need it for though. ultradude25 (T|C) at 00:30, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't know about hovering over them.
Stepping would be useful if you're looking through an instance with a million frames to cycle though, if you're looking for a specific one (of course, in such a case it would probably be better to look at reducing the number of frames, but we can't expect random reader 642125 to have any idea about that, much less the technical knowhow to do so, or the spare time and patience to acquire said knowhow). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:00, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Well... we're never going to have that many frames. I doubt we'd ever use more than 30.
I wanted to improve the mod support in the grid templates, and try to clean up the linking a bit, so since I'll be breaking everything anyway, I think I'll change the syntax to the one you had above; use semi-colons between frames, and commas for numbers (and defining mods will use colons, so different mods and vanilla items can be in the same animation). I think it'll be less confusing having the numbers together with the image (no more needing to do weird looking 3,3,3,3,3 sort of things). mods= will be changed to be a "default", so if you don't put a : name, it'll use that mod; vanilla will then be able to be selected like mods, (e.g. vanilla:Grass, probably with a v: alias too).
Then once all that's done, I can copy over the relevant splitting bits for the infoboxes. ultradude25 (T|C) at 04:53, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
I was using "a million" as hyperbole, there'd be something very very wrong if any page on the wiki ever even came close to just a thousand frames in a single instance! In practice, "around 30" fits quite well for what I was getting at when I said "a million". ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:06, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Alright, new syntax for the grid template is done. Since this is a major syntax change, and will break everything ever, I've put it all under Template:Grid2. I'll slowly transition everything over to that template, then put the changes into the main template, redirect the new one to the original, and use a bot to set everything back to the original. ultradude25 (T|C) at 03:32, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Added animation support to Template:Block (and you can see it in action on the Leaves page). However you can see that for 3 images, it takes up a lot of room, so I think we need to have this in the infobox common template. ultradude25 (T|C) at 10:16, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I've already used the Grid2 template for something not quite in its original job description, without a hitch -- that's a sign the template is fairly robust. --Mental Mouse 22:36, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Blender Block Rendering Help

I see that you render most (is not all) of the blocks with blender. I am having trouble rendering blocks. If you could make a tutorial or a preset layout. That would be nice, so I can make the blocks instead of asking people to do it. you could also give tips or pointers. This will help with adding 3d block pictures to my mod website.

Thanks 19:45, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Well I can upload my base block blend file if you want, all other renders are derived off of that. ultradude25 (T|C) at 03:36, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

What is with the Template/Grid2? — Cool12309 (talk) 03:31, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

I've changed the syntax to improve mod support (and generally make things simpler), so both templates need to exist at the same time while everything is updated, otherwise it will all be broken. ultradude25 (T|C) at 03:34, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see, I read infobox animations section above, and I get what it was for. I hope this is a permanent thing, because changing a huge template takes a while for everything to transition. — Cool12309 (talk) 03:40, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Well the breaking change is that numbers aren't a separate parameter anymore. I can't think of anything else that would ever need to be added to the template, and if there is, it should only need to add to the syntax, not change any existing bits. ultradude25 (T|C) at 03:47, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Going ahead with the page move and name change

Two weeks ago, I asked Quatroking if he would be moving the pages at Known bugs and renaming the subpages as proposed at the community portal and the talk page of known bugs. Since it seems he is busy with other things and it doesn't seem like he will be doing this, can you consider the proposals and move the pages to the suggested names? Thanks. --M0rphzone 23:18, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Sure, what is the main issues page going to be though? Just the full release versions (with a separate page for dev versions), or also the development versions (development version overwrites the full release page)?
Personally, I don't think having both the full release and dev version pages open at the same time is useful, as mojang only seems to look at the bugs in the dev versions. However, it also means people can only report bugs when using the development versions. ultradude25 (T|C) at 00:59, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
The main page at Issues will host the current full release, so that means the developmental releases will be created at their subpages once their released (example: Issues/Snapshot x). We can add the known bugs navbox (probably rename template to issues nav) and hatnotes to the main issues page for maintaining links to the development versions.
So summarizing the move process: I'm thinking the issues page will be the list of issues for the current full release and it can be being moved to its version subpage without redirect and locked after new full updates are released. After the previous version's issues page is moved to its subpage and deleted from the main page (example: Issues/Version 1.4.1), a new page at Issues can be created for the recently released full version, say for example: 1.4.2. --M0rphzone 06:35, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
By the way, the page currently at Known bugs might have to be moved to Known bugs/Archive or something, and then the Known bugs page can be a redirect to Issues. Issues page will also have to be deleted or archived. --M0rphzone 06:45, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
I think it'd be better to have the current snapshot at Issues/Snapshot (or Issues/Weekly), then archive previous ones to Issues/Snapshot/12wxxx, so it works the same as the main issues page. ultradude25 (T|C) at 09:02, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Seems like a good idea. I've already moved the existing Issues page to Issues/Archive to make room for the move. I'm guessing you'll be moving them with redirects first, then move the Issues page to Known bugs/Archive without redirect, and then move Issues/Version 1.3.2 without redirect to Issues, and after that, moving the snapshot pages. --M0rphzone 16:41, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Well I think everything is done. ultradude25 (T|C) at 01:46, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
Looks good. I've added hatnotes to the two new pages, and also gone ahead and renamed the Xbox and Pocket Edition pages as well. --M0rphzone 06:56, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

The other, :File:Gear-inventory.png, comes from terrain.png and is used for gears in the player's inventory. Hopefully that clears things up a bit. -- Orthotope 19:53, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Notice for talk pages

Is it possible to add a notice similar to the one on Talk:Xbox 360 Edition version history to all talk pages?

"Youtube fan boys"/Promoters and Lack of Formality on the Redstone Circuits Page

It has come to my attention that there are what appear to be devout fans of certain "Youtubers" that are posting links to videos and making claims without any proof. I believe these people should be watched and/or blocked from editing the Redstone Circuits page. It has also come to my attention that there are certain people who appear to be either reclassifying and/or putting certain circuits in more than one section or in a section all their own. I have also noticed a decline of the formal nature of certain added posts, as well as certain users putting their own personal opinions into their additions/edits.

There are 2 examples of the "Youtube fan boys"/Promoters complaint in the 1 single section provided by the following link:

A so-called "Helper" has gone Rogue.

The user Helper has done reversions of 10 pages, with the text comment "automatic restoration to the last revision by a non-vandal". I see from his history that he has indeed repaired some vandalism in the past -- unfortunately, that's not what he's doing this time around. For three of those pages, I was the last editor. In the "Bow" and "Sheep" pages, he reverted my reversions of vandalism and a prank entry respectively. On Tutorials/Piston Uses", he reverted all of my work at converting embedded videos into template-generated links (the number of videos on the page had made it crushingly slow for browsers to load). Glancing at his other "work", I see that in "Fire Charge", "Stone", "Potato", "Carrot", "Bucket", and "Tutorials/PvP", he reverted various minor changes -- most correct, one or two not, but all fairly inoccuous, and certainly not warranting an accusation of vandalism. And in "Tutorials/Traps", he reverted a clear sentence to the incoherent fragment it had replaced. I have been reverting the cases where his changes are obviously wrong, but can you please do something about this user? --Mental Mouse 00:38, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks! I see that you were wondering about a compromised account -- I hadn't thought of that.

Beacon Render

Just letting you know, the beacon block's crystal structure is actually based on the Ender Crystal's. It even contains the "bedrock slab" under it, although the bedrock block and fire are not part of an ender crystal's model and thus do not feature in the beacon. Despite the white shapes inside the beacon appearing to be cuboctohedra, they are actually just cubes with diamond shapes on each face.

Thus, if you have an Ender Crystal model (Barracuda did the render; maybe you can ask him), it shouldn't be too hard to scale down the model to its appropriate size and change the texture (for some reason, the beacon crystal's texture is in the misc folder). The bedrock slab hanging off the bottom probably will be visible in isometric view - I reduced my FoV beyond the normal limit (but not to 0, as that glitches the camera's render range and makes most things invisible), and the slab was visible under it. --WolfieMario 01:18, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes Barracuda's render will be ultimately better, so I'm not going to do much on it (the original I did for the ender crystal was just a greenscreened video converted to a gif). ultradude25Talk

E-mail confirmation problem

As you may have noticed on my talk page, I wasn't able to get my E-mail confirmed at the forum (I did try posting to the noted board for such case, with no response.) I just now noticed that my E-mail address isn't confirmed for this wiki, either. However, the same address confirmed fine when I got my Minecraft account with Mojang. Before his departure, Spencer seemed to think you could help with at least the former case... do you have any ideas or resources to fix this? Thanks in advance! (PS: I never got the confirmation E-mail from the forum, and apparently not from here, either.)--Mental Mouse 21:31, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

I don't think e-mail confirm has worked for a long time (I haven't been able to confirm all my interwiki accounts, which is especially annoying since some of them don't let me log in). Although I haven't tried recently. ultradude25Talk

Well, here, at least I can participate in the wiki, though some of the preferences don't work for lack of confirmation. On the forums, I'm in "validation limbo", and can't post to threads. Any ideas for the latter? --Mental Mouse 11:52, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
I have nothing to do with the forums. ultradude25Talk

Notice for file update page

A lot of people unfamiliar with the wiki, etc. revert or re-upload images multiple times because they haven't cleared their cache. It might be useful to add a notice at the File edit pages and file update pages to remind people to clear their cache. You can try providing a link to a webpage/wiki that explains the cache clearing process and what is it for those who don't know about it. --M0rphzone 23:55, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Ah I checked the upload/revert forms again, and it seems like the instructions are there, but people don't pay attention to them. Can they be made more prominent or is this something defaulted in the MediaWiki software? --M0rphzone 23:59, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Generic smartphone image

Unfortunately, there seems be a revert war going on at :File:Phone.svg. I've talked with 007a83 about the reasons, but he seems to be stubborn/immature about using the "admin-uploaded" image. I pulled this image off of WP, which uses a more generic image that is smaller in file size that the one you uploaded. Is this ok with you? --M0rphzone 01:58, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Pressure plate animation

Can you render animations of both plates being depressed and returning to their original position? We can use this on the article. I don't see why they shouldn't be animated (not single image animating between both types), since the lever is animated between on/off positions. --M0rphzone 18:42, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

What happened?

Are you gone forever? I hope you will come back! HotdogPi ⑬㊲ 02:19, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

He's taking an (unannounced) wikibreak; I'm pretty sure he plans to return at some point (at least, he hasn't said anything to me about retiring permanently or anything). ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:54, 3 November 2012 (UTC)


I need to talk to you if you have a sec, come to IRC. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 01:53, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

You're back!

It's a good thing you're finally back! People were vandalizing, and since there weren't as many active admins, people were getting away with more. Also, Orthotope and Hower64 are admins now. HotdogPi ⑬㊲ 23:40, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Your personal css alterations

In the process of messing with the edit counter script, I looked over your vector.css stuff and decided to try it all out (except for the twitter stuff, not sure what you have going there with the twitter scripts). I love the changes, especially that logo and the user links shifted to the Curse toolbar. The diff colors are great too.

I have one question though. Looking at the recent changes, I would rather have the Javascript things all default to open, but there's something that's been bugging me for ages. The User creation log. Using the Javascript enhanced changes, that log gets huge and can get annoying. Is there a way to keep all the changes open, but force just that log closed, or even hide the User creation log completely? One workaround I discovered is selecting userspaces and checking the invert box, but that also hides all userspace changes, preventing me from catching users editing other userspaces. Any tips? --Kanegasi C 08:02, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

table[class*="mw-changeslist-log-newusers-"] { display: none; }
That will hide the user creation log completely. ultradude25Talk
06:03, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Awesome, that works! Poking around the source and using Google, I ended up with table[class|="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed mw-enhanced-rc mw-changeslist-log-newusers"] and it worked, but for some reason the log popped right back up after the page was done loading. As I typed that, I just had an epiphany that it's because the collapsed value changed when it loaded up, voiding my selector. Very interesting. Thanks for the help and love the little changes and the edit count script. --Kanegasi C 06:10, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Spanish Wiki and search box

Hi, Ultradude25.We have a problem in our wiki: The search box never updates, I mean that it's different to this wiki. We tried to solve the problem but we couldn't, so we decided to ask your help. Please help us! And sorry for my bad English level, I'm still learning. ReyWar 14:38, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

You're not using the simple search box. Get Curse to set $wgVectorUseSimpleSearch = true; on your wiki. ultradude25Talk

Okay, thank you very much :D ReyWar 15:17, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but we didn't understand and we still can't update the search box. Please, where should we put that code...? ReyWar 15:42, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
You don't put it anywhere, you ask Curse to do it. ultradude25Talk

Okey, thanks again, sorry for the inconvenience. ReyWar 16:22, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
