    [1.6.4]Crash Landing [Hardcore, HQM] version 1.1.x BETA STABLE

    Really? Whoa! Awesome! I'm sorry for distributing misinformation, man. :confused: I gotta say, I really liked the first pack, even if I never made it past the first quest tree. :p One cool thing you might do with CL2 is to put it on GitHub and allow people to make pull requests for config...

    Those little things that irk you about Minecraft

    It's really more that going into a dimension for the first time means you need to generate that dimensions from scratch. If people get kicked when you go somewhere for the first time, that's why, and I don't think it's something you can really work around.

    [1.6.4]Crash Landing [Hardcore, HQM] version 1.1.x BETA STABLE

    I can confirm that Iskandar more or less does NOT intend to update the pack. You can, however, find other packs with bits and pieces of CL's mechanics set; Regrowth springs to mind as a potential candidate.

    Those little things that irk you about Minecraft

    I guess you could say grass blocks are... Cheap as dirt. I'm... I'm so sorry.

    ... I gotta use that. (With the appropriate brand, of course ;))

    [1.7.10] Intro2Mods [Very Lite][For Uplifting Noobs]

    No... It ends up that it's a lot of work to keep a themed pack themed; it's easier to just throw 60 mods of every type into a folder and google-drive 'em to your friends. That's what I'm playing privately (on the rare occasions that I play MC); I'm not sure if I'll publish it. In other news...

    [1.7.10] Intro2Mods [Very Lite][For Uplifting Noobs]

    Yeah, if and when I do another update I'm going to add both of those. Your reasoning is superb, I give up. :P

    What cool little thing have you discovered today?

    I discovered this a long time ago, but I still think it's worth posting about: I used to be incredibly pessimistic, cynical, and sarcastic, and then I discovered XKCD. XKCD is also sarcastic and a little cynical sometimes, but the character Beret Guy is always naively optimistic (and endowed...

    Beginner mod packs?

    Well, this might be a little bit of a shameless self-plug, but: My modpack Intro2Mods contains a whopping 25-ish mods: basically Buildcraft, Forestry, Thermal Expansion, Thaumcraft, and the Twilight Forest. There's also a couple addon mods. It's intended mainly for experienced players who want...

    Mr. Fusion new 1.8.9 mod [wip]

    Perhaps it would be OK to say: "If you're planning on making your own mod intended to be a centerpiece to any pack it's in (i.e. Terrafirmacraft, then disregard what other mods do. However, if you intend it for general, non-core use (i.e. QuantumFlux) then for the love of all things modded...

    Request Factorio Mod

    Wait, which pack *are* you playing? That might help us understand where you're coming from. I imagine that upgraded/well powered robots would be significantly faster than whatever you used. It's a shame most people just use the pipes and oil stuff and the quarry from BC (myself included :()...

    Request Factorio Mod

    Deep Resonance even has pollution. It isn't as big an issue as Factorio, but it's a step in the right direction. ... BC works fine. You can use configs and minetweaker if you think it's underpowered. Have you actually PLAYED with it extensively? :P

    Request Factorio Mod

    Aside from the long-ish post I made a couple days ago about not asking people to make stuff if you can't yourself, I'm going to say this: Factorio was heavily inspired by modded MC itself, so a Factorio mod would be kind of backwards. Most of what exists in Factorio already exists in modded MC...

    Official FTB Pack Suggestions Thread

    Bro, just set up an autonomous activator (or equivalent) to break it for you, or even mine in manually. Problem solved. :D Of course, you probably knew that... But still. It's not that hard to do. :P

    Request Tinker's Construct: Tinker's Weapons

    I'm going to direct you to this post first: http://vazkii.us/uncategorized/what-not-to-when-starting-off-with-modding/ Specifically, read the "Don't assemble a team" section. Alright. Personally, I dislike Vazkii's tone in that article. It feels mean and superior to me throughout. These forums...

    [1.6.4]Crash Landing [Hardcore, HQM] version 1.1.x BETA STABLE

    You say this as though it's a necessary component to all good packs. I would argue that forcing tech progression is among the worst moves for a pack intended to be enjoyed by just a generic audience. Removing exploits can also have a negative impact. //Me waxing philosophical about various...

    Mechanics discussion: all about the grind

    I just minetweakered the creative upgrade for the crafting station to be made of dirt. Problem solved. :D I don't need to imagine, I can CALCULATE! It takes 48 days. :p And you're right about not being able to get into MC. I AM that person. I used to have time, so I played a lot, but now that I...

    Mechanics discussion: all about the grind

    Not my private pack. :P Plus it irks me to have to use a mod that I actively dislike for going where it has (whether I'm justified is a different story and not to be discussed here; it is enough to say that it makes me crabby to have to use it).

    Mechanics discussion: all about the grind

    Not everyone plays with IC2, mate. I don't really want to spend resources on a mod I'm going to use to make diamonds once.
