This section describes how you could configure Scenter, version 3.0.0 (or later).
Please note that Scenter has two config files of which actually only one is effectively used.
- Scenter.cfg – This file is currently unused (it contains only a version tag)
- Scenter3.targets.cfg – This file contains the target definitions for all blocks which Scenter can find.
To configure Scenter do the following:
- Locate your .minecraft/config folder (if it’s not there you have to install Forge and Scenter, and run Minecraft at least once)
- Open the file “Scenter3.targets.cfg”
- Make your changes (see below)
- Save the file
- Run Minecraft
To add a new block as a single-block target:
- Scroll down to the end of the file “Scenter3.targets.cfg”
- Add a new line with just the block name
- Optionally append a comment (marked with ‘#’) to this line
adds obsidian as a new target to Scenter.
If this single-block target is chosen during gameplay (choose it by pressing the ‘O’ key multiple times) then Scenter searches the environment for the nearest occurrence of blocks with exactly this name and marks the trail to it with floating particles.
For a list of block names please see below.
To find out the name of a specific block:
With Minecraft 1.7.x Mojang has replaced the numerical block IDs with (unique) block names.
The following spoiler contains a compiled list of all vanilla Minecraft block names.
List of Minecraft Block Names (1.7.2)
However, other mods might add custom blocks to Minecraft.
To find out the names of these blocks do the following:
- Run Minecraft with Scenter installed
- Enter a world
- Enable Scenter (by pressing ‘O’)
- Quit Minecraft
- Open your .minecraft/logs folder
- Open file fml-client-latest.log
- Search for the line containing “[mickkay.scenter.ScenterMod/Scenter]: These blocks are registered:”
- Below that line you’ll find a list of all registered blocks.
To add multiple blocks as a multi-block target:
- Add a new line with a comma-separated list of block names
adds a new target for stationary lava and flowing lava. If such a multi-block target is activated during gameplay, then Scenter searches the environment for any of those blocksand marks the trail to the nearest one found.
To add a block subtype as a single-block target:
- Add a new line with a the block name followed by a slash ‘/’ and the corresponding subtype ID (also known as ‘damage value’)
wool/14 # Red Wool
adds red wool as a new target. (The ‘#’ marks the rest of the line as a comment which will be ignored by Scenter.)
To add multiple block subtypes as a multi-block target:
- Add a new line with a comma-separated list of block subtypes
wool/14, wool/4, wool/6 # Red, Green, and Blue Wool
adds a target for red wool, green wool, and blue wool.
To use a custom color for a specific target’s particle trail:
- Locate the line with the target you want to change.
- Insert the desired color code right after the block name(s), but before any comment (‘#’)
- The color code must be specified as HEX value (but without any leading ‘#’)
lava, flowing_lava FF0000
sets the lava target’s color to red (FF0000).
You might want to use the Online Color Picker to choose the color code.
