Q: How do you get to Atum?

A: See the images above or the linked video

Q: How do you summon a Pharaoh, they just roll over!

A: Spoiler: Place four royal torches around the sarcophagus on the Carved Limestone, continuing the pattern. Make sure they are all lit.

Q: How do you light unlit torches?

A: Right click them with a torch or flint/steel.

Q: How does the Kiln work?

A: The Kiln is a 2x2x2 Multiblock, consisting of 6 Small Limestone Bricks and 2 Kiln blocks. Place the two Kiln Blocks on the top side of the front to complete it. It smelts Stone and Clay related recipes mostly.

Q: Can you downgrade to Forge ####?

A: No, we use features of the newer forge versions and cannot revert.

Q: This block/model isn't rendering right!

A: If you are running Optifine or another shader/render modifier you should take that report to them, not us.

If you have a bug report we do not accept reports containing Optifine or unofficial Forge variants. Please remove those and if the bug persists continue to submit.
