    So I have recently received further news about the release of Red Power 2. It has apparently been decided that release of the mod has been delayed until after the 21st December 2012. Apparently there are fears that if Eloraam was to release now, the amount of data being downloaded at one time would effectively bring down the internet. This would lead to a chain of events that would cumulate in the end of world.

    It is hoped that by delaying the upcoming release of Red Power we can avoid this disaster and may get to see a future where we finally get to a point where FTB can release a stable mod pack, the hard work of Pahimar and Soaryn isn't wasted and we all get to see the amazing looking Equivalent Exchange and Xycraft, and Notch and Jeb finally give the mod developers a few weeks to breathe by not releasing a new version or update to Minecraft (OK sorry, I admit it, the last one is a dream).

    Anyways, you can all relax for the next few weeks, give your F5 key a much earned break and enjoy the awesome mods that are already out there.

    LOL. Stupid Internet. Thanks for the update.

    I'm a little confused though. Does this mean EE and Xycraft will be packed into FTB first, with RedPower to come later? Or are they all waiting for the post-Dec. 21 date?

  4. Admittedly I'd prefer stable release rather than way too early release with several bug fix updates after. Also yeah, good luck waiting for a time that Minecraft itself ISN"T updating. I just hope you guys don't have to keep updating for versions 1.5.1, then 1.5.2, then 1.5.3, etc. when the next update rolls out.

    My F5 key is happy now.
    I, on the other hand, am very sad, although I do respect Elo's wishes. We get RP2 when we get RP2, and not a minute sooner. If we have to wait until the New Year, then we have to wait until the New Year. There's no changing that, so we might as well put up with it.

    Aw. Sad day.
    But at least the interwebz is safe. I shall eagerly await the day when the world is stable enough to risk releasing RP2. We wouldn't want Red Power Day to cause the Earth to explode in a big fiery ball.

    This is great news! The 21st of December is not far away! I actually expected it would be a lot longer before Eloraam got around to releasing Red Power. Red Power is weeks, not months away!!! That makes me happy!

    But there is an after the 21. so it doesn't give any more information than more than 10 days.

    The question is does time exist after the 21st?

    The real question is why let that one mod hold the pack hostage indefinitely? A FTB pack 1.4.5 update when the final release of ic2 comes out would be a pretty welcome release.

    Bring down the internet you say? Perhaps Red Power should only be distributed via sneakernet.

    That would be nice, but the world gen in rp will start to ruin any unexplored area in your world :(

    slowpoke said on Xcompz stream the whole thing was a joke and shouldn't be taken serious
