Rival Rebels 1.5.2 Download

Rival Rebels version 1.5.2b  1.5.2a (alpha) for Minecraft 1.5.2
Edit: This is RR 1.5.2b update. The fixed version that should be stable and stop all the reported glitches in the alpha. (Thank you guys for the feedback)

On this update I'm including what I think is the first Game Lobby GUI in any Minecraft mod, if it's not, you are welcome to let me know. To see the new lobby break the game starter bloc in survival mode and you are done! 
Also eight new sets of armor were added. Sigma and Omega teams now have four classes each: Rebel, Nuker, Intel and Hacker. I reworked the spawn system and added the objectives.
Plus new LANGUAGE SUPPORT for Dutch! Special thanks to Arjandotorg for the Dutch translations. Please visit his youtube channel at ArjanDotOrg.
And new LANGUAGE SUPPORT for Chinese! Special thanks to Lexus for the Chinese translations, here is the link to his profile.

**No Download** 

For MC 1.5.2 use the Tsar Bomb update

Note: this version is deprecated due to Forge changes. For Minecraft 1.5.2, please use RR v1.5.2G instead.

The original 1.5.2C update was released using FORGE VERSION

Remember that it is very important to remove the old config files to avoid problems with the new ID's.

'The Lobby' Team Selector GUI

Rebel Class GUI

Hacker Class GUI

Nuker Class GUI

Intel Class GUI

Intel Class Armor & Sigma Objective

New features on the update:

The new Spawn System eliminates -spawn- griefing and killings, adding a Team selection GUI, a sort of Lobby that shows the different player names on each team pointing the selected class in different colors, red for the Rebel (a heavy weapons specialist), yellow for the Nuker, (a demolition expert), blue for the Intel, (special forces) and green for the Hacker (a cyber war specialist).

I extended the LANGUAGE SUPPORT for the new GUIs, adding lots of translations for Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, German, Finnish, Dutch and Chinese. Please if you find mistakes in your language, let me know to correct them!! or if your language is not present, and you want to help, please contact me.
There are 8 new armor sets, 32 pieces in total that have different levels of damage reduction and durability depending on the class. The new armor could be enchanted.
The reworked game starter block now deploys an Omega and Sigma objective 200 blocks apart from the spawn. The new objectives serve as the goal or end game when nuked by the other team.
In the new game system one unique objective is set for each team that is indestructible by all means, but the nuke. Each side must protect it from being destroyed while attacking and trying to destroy the other team's objective. So when an objective is caught by the nuclear blast radius it gets destroyed and the opposite team is declared victorious. Then, the game restarts by moving the -spawn-  200 blocks farther on the same map and setting new objectives for the next battle.
Also, the player's name tags are working fine again, only showing when the distance is 5 or less blocks, to allow hiding behind solids and so.

The RR Server is running the current version,  feel free to join.

Op commands:
 /reset all   (deletes all the team files and all the resets counts)
 /reset <player name>   (deletes the given player's team files and reset counts)

Player commands:
/killme  (kills the player)
/rr <password>  (allows the player to enter Rod Disk rank password)

- Game starter block deploys the team's objective and spawn
- Game starter block sets the spawn on the sky, at 200 blocks height, and forces the player to respawn
- Game starter block builds a half sphere spawn, with no grass and no beacon to prevent lag
- Original camo armor crates have new recipes
- The Army Shovel now called Sapper Shovel, quickly breaks a big variety of blocks and does damage to mobs
- Tesla randomly cycles thru the armor pieces inflicting damage, instead of attacking all pieces at once
- When the player is teleported from the spawn sphere he only carries the items from the selected class
- The GUI reset button allows players to change class within a battle 2 times and clears the inventory
- The smart camo block is stronger to the tesla and to the Gravity explosion system
- The Toaster spams less help messages when clicked

Known glitches:

- Tesla has a temporary fix that renders the arc at a 20 block distance but still hits targets at normal ranges. (only the visuals are buggy since a Forge change on Build 1.5.1- )
- The Controller and the Reactor are not finished
- After clicking the reset button the third time the team selector GUI stops showing
- The Loader duplicates when broken
- The flare disappears when a block is placed on top
- MC crashes on re-loggin after using the gane-starter block. For now you can delete the files inside /mods/rivalrevels folder, not the zip file, and do not use the game starter!
- There is a glitch assigning the class items to the player's inventory that makes some items unresponsive

All the crossed out glitches have been fixed in version 1.5.2b.

  1. sorry buddy I can not get into your server because I get the typical bad login message greetings from chile across the planet: D

    1. Hola Sebas, If you updated to the current 1.5.2 please be sure that you deleted the old config files, look inside the minecraft/config folder, delete them and try again.


    2. look I'll explain ... what happens is that this server discovered recently and saw the videos and I liked it but I've never gotten to the server and not the steps also in the folder .minecraft / config settings I have a few mods like BuildCraft and several more that I do? devo remove my mods except forge or devo leave and do something else? I thank you in advance for your help: D

    3. hello again. I have a question and hoping you answer me.
      do not know if I have the 1.5.2a version of minecraft or if I have the 1.5.2b and would like to tell me how I could know. also I can not even get to the server and i get bad login message. thanks in advance for your answer.

    4. Hi Sebas, log onto Minecraft and press the mods button, after that you will have a list of your installed mods on your left, click on Rival Rebels and read the information displayed on the main pane.

      Para estar seguro de poder loggear en mi server, saca temporalmente los otros mods de la carpeta de mods y borra los archivos de configuración dentro de la carpeta config. Cuando los borras, esos archivos se generan automaticamente dependiendo de los mods tienes.

  2. its not working, the server is NOT workig! it is on but the gamemode is not working :/ and everyone are being childish.... oh and ps, the another server doesnt work.

    1. Hi, yes StygianIce's Server if off, thanks for letting me know. I crossed it out on the server page.
      My server is up, but it's survival only.

  3. oh and ban kevin, he is destroying or blocks to get away from spawn.

  4. Hello i have a mac book pro osx lion and my minecraft keeps on crashing when i put in the 1.5.2b and when i take it out i works perfectly fine please help!

    1. Please use the latest version of Forge universal from this link, , your version must be old, You can check your Forge build clicking the mod button at login. For RR 1.5.2b update I used the latest one.
      After updating Forge please remember to delete the config files inside the minecraft/config folder.
      You can find Forge installation steps for Mac on the Download tab of this site.

    2. i did that but now when i log in the forge thing that says that is taking some task does nothing and black screens

    3. Did you use this?

      Mac Instructions:

      Fool Proof Forge install instructions
      1- Download latest Forge (if safari, right click to download file). Double click file to unzip
      2- Go to user/library/application support/minecraft and delete the bin folder. To find the hidden library folder in Lion OS, go here for instructions.
      3- Launch minecraft, login and quit (to generate a new and clean bin folder)
      4- Go to user/library/application support/minecraft/bin folder and rename the minecraft.jar file as, double click and extract (to make into a folder)
      5- Add the .jar extension to that new minecraft folder (now minecraft.jar)
      6- Delete the file
      7- Drag all the files from the unzipped Forge folder into the minecraft.jar folder (when prompted, select the 'apply to all' check box and click replace)
      8- Delete the META-INF folder that's inside the minecraft.jar folder
      9- Delete the files inside the minecraft/config folder
      10-Check your minecraft/mods folder for old mods that might conflict with forge (folder should be empty or only mods compatible with the current Forge version)
      11- Launch minecraft, login and quit (it will generate new folders and files for forge)
      12- Download and drag the file to user/library/application support/minecraft/mods (do not unzip file)
      13- Launch minecraft and enjoy.

      If you did, and still no luck , You move the entire minecraft folder to the desktop as a backup, in order to bring back you saved worlds, options, servers and last log, later on. Then launch MC, exit and install Forge using the steps above.

  5. minecraft says some id missing in my server . how can i fix this issue?

    1. Please use Forge Build , delete the config files and let me know.


  6. i always get minecraft validating and it always stays like that

  7. Everytime when i open minecraft with the mod, it also creates a new "mods" folder into my desktop and its pretty annoying to delete them everytime, how can i stop this?

    1. Your Minecraft directory is pointing to the desktop, it should go to the user's game data. The folder is created to keep player spawn coordinates, faction, etc. The folder is created once but if you delete it, it will be generated again. I can't guide you on how to change the path because I'm currently using ubuntu linux and mac. Try moving the launcher and making a shortcut.
