Mix Up Your Minecraft: Thaumic Tinkerer

This week's post is going to be a short one.  Work just changed things up on me, and I'm still trying to get used to it.

The mod of the day is called 'Thaumic Tinkerer'.  Remember the mod called Thaumcraft that I reviewed two weeks ago? (If you don't, read it here).  Thaumic Tinkerer is a mod for Thaumcraft.  Essentially a mod for a mod or modception (Inception jokes are a little old, sorry!).  Thaumic Tinkerer integrates really well with the Thaumcraft research mechanic.  It doesn't add in any new mechanics, just loads of new discoveries and items to build.  Some of the ones that I particularly like are gaseous light which lights up an area with an easily discernable light source, ethereal platforms which players can fall through by sneaking and can be disguised to look like nearly any other block in the game, as well as powerful end game items including unbreakable armor and wands that store an incredible amount of energy.  It also includes much much more!

It is interesting to note that Thaumic Tinkerer isn't the only mod that modifies Thaumcraft.  In fact, there are whole lists of mods that add more to the experience!  Personally, I haven't played with anything besides Thaumic Tinkerer so I can't speak of what the other mods are like.  If you are interested, here is a list of them on Reddit and another on the Thaumcraft 4 wiki site.

As always, have fun mixing up your Minecraft and make sure to mix responsibly.

P.S. Mormon Geeks is going to Fantasy Con this week!  Be sure to keep your eyes peeled.  There may be an Andrew sighting. ;)
