Junk Jack FAQ - Come Here Before Asking !

PostSun May 31, 2015 5:44 pm

Hello. I am Solly, and I have put together a fancy new FAQ thread! Basically, what I will do every once in a while is go into the Help & Support section, and locate the most asked things, and post their answers here!
Yes, I do think this will help. :D

Every question will include "Key Words" so you can easily CTR+F and find it easily.

So. Let's get started, shall we?

...

...

Q: Why do people have different name colors and what do they mean?
A:
  • Dark Blue means you are a regular member, with no special privilages.
  • Pink means they beta tested the original Junk Jack at some point
  • Cyan means they are a current tester or have previously tested for Junk Jack X
  • Blue means they are currently or have previously tested for Junk Jack Steam
  • Green means they are a global moderator - They have the ability to ban/warn users, lock/unlock/merge/move/delete topics or posts as well as a few other abilities that they have used in the past to troll users (Only on special occasions or for on-going jokes)
  • Gold/ Dark Brown means they are the very special moderator Mastery51, there is a story as to why his name is this color, but that's best not to be discussed here.
  • Orange means they are an admin. Both of our admins are the 2 developers behind Junk Jack and Junk Jack X, be sure to be nice to these guys, without them, Junk Jack wouldn't exist!

Keywords: Name, color, admin, beta, developer, moderator


Q: I want to be a beta tester, how do I sign up?
A: The easiest way to answer this is that you really can't just sign up, you can express your interest and hope that Pixbits will pick you the next time that beta applications are open.
Keywords: Beta, tester, application, how, why, unfair


Q: I want to be the top poster! How many posts do I have to make to get there?
A: Well.. memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1449
Keywords: Post, count, total, top, best, awesome


Q: I accidentally deleted my world, how can I recover it?
A: Easy, just change the suffix of the .dat.bak file to .dat! There is a whole post tutorial right here.
Keywords: Backup, back, file, recover, delete, lost, world


Q: Where can I find the bottomless chest pieces?
A: Left in Terra's sand, center on Cryo's violet dirt, and right on Alba's aqua dirt.
Keywords: Bottomless, chest, piece, location, left, middle, right


Q: Do ores and chests respawn after time?
A: No. Because of world generation, it's permanent if you break a block.
Keywords: Block, ore, chest, respawn, regenerate, time


Q: Will my animals despawn?
A: If they are not tamed, yes, they will run away.
Keywords: Animal, despawn, run, tame, collar, taming


Q: Well, how do I tame animals?
A: Make a taming collar, slap them with it, make their corresponding shelter, and place them in there.
Keywords: Animal, despawn, run, tame, stay, shelter, house, taming, collar


Q: Why aren't I getting good rares?
A: You might be on peaceful or very easy, The chance of getting rare items corresponds to what difficulty you are playing on.

Q: Can I have multiple characters?
A: Of course! In the main menu, just tap the floating bubble with your player in it and select create new!

A: Craft a spanner wrench with Tinkerer's Tools, and punch the stair with it!
Keywords: Mirror, left, right, slope, stair, tile, tool


Q: How do I break the black stuff at the bottom of the world?
A: Not to correct your racism, but that black stuff is probably bedrock! You can't break it.
Keywords: Black, block, break, bedrock

^which you can break.

You need a key "equal" to or higher than the "lock".
1. Junk-Jack-Wiki
2. The world is big, 256 blocks high and 768 across.
3. Who is John Galt?
4. Lack of objection does not indicate consent.

  • Gold/ Dark Brown means they are the very special moderator Mastery51, there is a story as to why his name is this color, but that's best not to be discussed here.
  • Orange means they are an admin. Both of our admins are the 2 developers behind Junk Jack and Junk Jack X, be sure to be nice to these guys, without them, Junk Jack wouldn't exist!

We could simply talk about it here, I was refering to the "Best not to talk about it here" in the actual FAQ post.
But I'd rather wait till Mastery turns up to talk about it, he knows the story better then anyone else :asd:
You could also simply PM him if you wanted a quicker answer.

:) well in a quick short version it all started when I was moderating the forum one day. when I hit enter to edit a post the junk jack forum's server encountered a power outage. This in turn erased my account. So my account And posts on the topics were gone but strangely many of my posts remained in the search bar but with no user name on them. Pixbits created my account again and connected my post to the new username. Pixbits than gave me a choice to chose my username color to say they were sorry for the inconvenience.

My history with junk jack includes alpha/ beta tester for original junk jack and junk jack x. I am also one of the 3 original moderators which included Chocolate, who just stopped posting one day :dunno: and tye-dye who also stopped posting.
