I was frustrated when first installing because my installs kept getting destroyed by lava and water.
So I did a fresh install on a new world. In the spawn chuncks I took steps to prep the area for install. I want to install 13 modules and some can be quite large. So I wanted a "room" at bedrock and a corresponding platform at ground level. In my world I picked a flat area in a desert, but that happened to work for my world. In some this might not work, or you might have to go high to clear out the area for the ground level platform.
I started facing towards Positive z and placed a command block with button. Then I ran the following commands all with the same command block. These first 4 commands clear out the area for the ground floor platform.
- You can increase the Y to 12, but it might max out the number of blocks.
fill ~ ~-1 ~1 ~50 ~10 ~50 air 0 replace
fill ~ ~-1 ~51 ~50 ~10 ~100 air 0 replace
fill ~50 ~-1 ~1 ~100 ~10 ~50 air 0 replace
fill ~50 ~-1 ~51 ~100 ~10 ~100 air 0 replace
Then run this single Command
fill ~ ~-1 ~1 ~100 ~-1 ~100 iron_block 0 replace
THis creates a 100x100 iron block platform.
Then go below the command block down to Bedrock (Y=1)right under the original Command Block and place another command block and run with these commands. Face Positive Z. I choose to hollow with glass because its neat. Plus it allows you to see that the 4 commands ran correctly. THe negative is that if you mess around the area then you might break some glass and let water or lava in.
fill ~ ~ ~1 ~51 ~10 ~51 glass 0 hollow
fill ~ ~ ~51 ~50 ~10 ~100 glass 0 hollow
fill ~50 ~ ~1 ~100 ~10 ~50 glass 0 hollow
fill ~50 ~ ~51 ~100 ~10 ~100 glass 0 hollow
This creates an area 100x100 that is hollow with glass walls. There also walls between the areas, but they do not seem to effect the install fo modules, so I didnt worry about it.
Then run this command to replace glass floor with bedrock
fill ~ ~ ~1 ~100 ~ ~100 bedrock 0 replace
Then start to install on the surface. Use Gammode 3 to go down and check that the next module will not overlap the prior mdule. Some require a lot of space. I may some time, figure out the area for each module I install and post it. Also if something about this will not work, plase correct it. I have only installed the first 5 and they have worked great.
