    Returning to modded MC, need help /advice

    Some of you old timers might remember me from last year, I used to post fairly often and have around 1k posts here. Point is: I took a nine-month break from modded MC and am super out-of-the-loop. I mean, back when I left Thermal Dynamics was just released and still too unstable to be put into...

    Really stupid things that people have said about Modded MC(Off topicness makes moderators tired)

    Let me tell you a little story. The PC that I use actually isn't in my room, but a guest room across the house. The guest room has an ugly bed that takes up a good amount of space. I'm pretty sure my parents would get rid of the bed if I asked, but honestly I'll never do that for one simple...

    Botania - An innovative natural magic themed tech mod (Not in beta any more!)

    If this hasn't been patched out (I hope not), the Tiny Planet can make shots from the Mana Blaster and more importantly the Terra Blade orbit you. It's like an energy shield, in a way.

    Do modders get jealous?

    Given that particular situation, the jealousy is pretty warranted IMO.

    Do modders get jealous?

    Depends on the modder. In most cases no, in some cases very much yes.

    Really stupid things that people have said about Modded MC(Off topicness makes moderators tired)

    Correct me if I'm wrong (limited knowledge of programming), but is that code designed to steal login info?

    Ok, I just came back from a week's break, and read through the last 10 pages.........wow. RIP my brain cells

    Isn't selling a modpack breaking the TOS?

    Poll: RFTools Dimension Builder Penalties

    Honestly, I'd suggest a configurable blacklist so we could disable modifiers like diamond ore/blocks entirely if we so please.

    It's even more impressive when you consider that Skyboy just got more work done at improving Minecraft's performance in a few hours than the entirety of Mojang did in a whole year. Oh wait.

    Overated/Problematic/Misused Mods

    I dunno about you, but I have a hard time considering small and easily stopped gases a serious "risk" after playing with things like Zombie Awareness and Mo' Creatures.

    Overated/Problematic/Misused Mods

    My personal issue with HQM is that it's mainly just used to enforce linear progression, which I despise.

    AE2 Controller Optimization.

    Your best bet, configs aside, is to use other sorting methods to process and move everything to and from your AE system, keeping the system itself small. The only time you'll have to burn though channels then is for AE2's crippled autocrafting (which I still find to be annoying as all hell).

    Overated/Problematic/Misused Mods

    And for those of us that hate the plants.......yeah. I never really got the hype around that mod.

    Why no modpacks for the latest version (MC 1.8)?

    Not even being worked on. 1.8 is.......terrible, in numerous ways, so quite frankly there isn't a ton of incentive to make mods for it compared to 1.7. Actually, my 1.7 world has all major 1.8 features ported over anyway via Botania and Gany's mods. I would not be surprised if 1.8 is skipped...

    I've been away a while

    Bad. Not that Microsoft did anything, but that a bunch of modders knee-jerked and ragequit (most notably cpw, in his case out of dislike of Microsoft). On an unrelated note, Vazkii and mDiyo quit modding but are still play and are active in the community. Meanwhile Elofoot Eloraam is now...

    Cyclical Infinite Power-Resouce Gathering

    Somehow, I get the feeling trying to just "make it harder" isn't gonna solve the main issue here. The issue is that people are (and have been) trying to merge two VERY different games created by modding MC into one, and it doesn't work anymore. One game is the GT, HQM or other forced...

    A modpack does not need minimal amounts of mods to create a focused gameplay experience, IMO.

    Cyclical Infinite Power-Resouce Gathering

    The main thing you're going to want to do with huge amounts of resources is massive building projects. All those gems/metals you got? Install Chisel and Carpenter's Blocks to make them look nicer so they can be used too. Chisel does have worldgen by default (limestone and marble) but that can...
