You want villages appearing in exotic new biomes?

Or maybe Red Sandstone is just what you need to spice up an Indian Palace?

Unless you've long felt it was a real shame to have Norman castles but not banners to put on them?

Maybe what you need is the long awaited... Millénaire for Minecraft 1.12! Banners, parrots, rabbits, fancy stone blocks, it's all coming to your favourite village... hopefully soon, at least!

As the oldest among you might remember, I had tried and failed to upgrade Millénaire to Minecraft 1.8 four years or so ago, partly because Forge support for it was poor at the time, partly because I had very limited free time. I recently had a new look at it with a more ambitious goal: upgrading straight to 1.12. I'm happy to report that I've made very good progress, and while it's not ready for a public beta, the core elements are in place!

This means that for now development on Millénaire will progress on two tracks: the ongoing, much-needed rewrite will continue under Bosscrafter as an Open Source project, with the aim to provide Millénaire with the clean, extensible code base it needs for long-term growth, while I focus on the current code base, stabilising it for Minecraft 1.12 and then maybe doing minor feature updates, plus possible content updates worked on by other people.

My first aim now is to release a bugged-but-playable public alpha to get more widespread feedback on the state of the 1.12 version. I'm hoping to have that out in one or two weeks. How long it will take from that to a full working release is harder to say; I won't promise anything until there has been enough testing to figure out exactly how many bugs are lurking in the new version ;)

Cheers,

Kinniken

This needs way more exposure than it currently has.

Also respect for still tirelessly working on this gem of a mod! :D

I will give it a lot more exposure, but when there's a playable beta out. For now I'd rather keep it within the users of this forum and the discord :)

Those are the Soartex-inspired HD textures, they are already in the mod. It's a setting you need to enable.

Will be used new blocks in buildings? Like banners in normans fort? It could be nice to see something like randomly generated patern of banners for just one village and other patern for other village. New blocks like "diorit, andesit and the last one" could be used in floors or something.

Thank you for your answer. Sorry for my bad english.

Hey so question about this. when you guys go to release a beta will the files be available to use and download. Cause i am setting up a server for my friends and i, and we all want to include this mod for 1.12.2

Did you realise this "someone" is Kinniken, the mod creator? ^^
Also, he's working on the mod alone iirc, just pointing that out, so nobody start imagining things...

I'm very glad you're back Kinniken, your mod made me dream all these years ago, and is one of the reason I'm now in a computer science Master's degree (at the university of Pau, btw what/which university/cursus did you go to? If that's not to intrusive ofc...).
I wish you well and good luck with this project!

Très heureux de te revoir sur la scène Kinniken, ton mod pour minecraft me ramène bien des années en arrière, et est l'une des raisons qui m'a pourré à suivre un cursus en informatique, je suis maintenant en 1ère année de Master ^^" (à l'universitée de Pau (UPPA) d'ailleur, si ce n'est pas trop indiscret, quel cursus as-tu suivi?).
J'espere entendre parler de toi et te souhaite bon courage pour ce projet :D .

Possibly, but not in the initial 1.12 release. For now I just want to have something that works!

Merci ! J'ai fait un DUT à Orsay puis l'UTC à Compiègne. Bon courage pour tes études.

Do you have an estimate on how long a playable version will be? I'm willing to be a guinea pig for this one :)

I only play Hardcore until I die/get bored now. Millenaire made things much more fun.

Dite, vous donnez plus de nouvelle sur discord/site concernant la MAJ du mod
D'ailleur la maj va être mise en 1.8.9 et 1.2.2 ou simplement d'abord la version 1.8.9 et après 1.2.2 ?

Et dernière question, Est ce que le mod est soit: compatible avec les versions mais que vous le sortez pas encore car il y a des bugs/imperfections, ou bien la progression du mod est ralentie du faite que la vie réel vous empêche de travailler rapidement ?

Merci d'avance d'avoir répondue à mes questions, quand le mod sera mis à jour, je vous ferais un don ^^,

Salut,

Comme annoncé dans cette thread je travaille sur la MAJ à 1.12. C'est une MAJ directe, donc non pas de version intermédiaire en 1.8.

Il y aura probablement une alpha public bientôt.

K.

Merci d'avoir répondu aussi vite ^^,

Y a t-il un moyen que la communauté puisse vous aider de quelque façon ?
Ou du moins des bêta-testeur (enfin là on dira plus "alpha testeur" :roll:) ?

Sinon je prendrais mon mal en patience...
Des dates approximatives de la alpha ?

Is there a guide for this? I have the new release installed.
