Narcogen shows Blackstar some of the upgrades he's made around the house. Then we take a wolf mining with us...

Game: 

Blackstar and Narcogen have been sent back to primitive Earth by a freak teleporter accident. They must develop the technology to return to Mars, the construction site of the Marathon, to save the future!

 

In this episode, we look at two more of the installed mods: Elegant Punt, which adds new small boats to the game featuring storage and extra seats, and Somnia, which simulates the world while you sleep so that you can smelt ores faster. (Mobs still spawn, though.)

Build the Marathon Ep. 3: Galacticraft, NEI, Dimensional Anchors

 

Blackstar and Narcogen have been sent back to primitive Earth by a freak teleporter accident. They must develop the technology to return to Mars, the construction site of the Marathon, to save the future!

 

In this episode we look at a map to see where we need to go, check out Not Enough Items to find out how to build things like oxygen gear we'll need to survive in space, and dimensional anchors to keep ourselves from floating away into space (and keep wheat growing while we're away).

 

Starting with this episode, we're using a custom mod pack in which the primary mods are:

I hate to have to diverge from the stated focus so soon, but this looks fantastic. Reminds me of one of my favorite games on the Amiga, Starglider II. No idea whether it will support coop play, multiplatform play, or even run on OS X, but I don't care. I want it.
UPDATE: It seems like coop is unlikely, as recent interviews have quoted developers as saying "you'll never see another player" and while I applaud the emphasis on exploration and the removal of griefing that focus brings, it'd be nice if you could party up with one or two other players to explore the universe together.
