    [1.6.4] Material Energy^3 [JamPacked] [HQM] [CTM] [Beta]

    Okay. I'm stumped. The "Golem Factory" quest suggests I use "common elements" to synthesize netherrack. That part is easy: Dump a metric ton of cobble in to the decomposer, get a little silicon, iron, and oxygen out. Use that to synthesize Netherrack. That part's simple. What I don't...

    [1.6.4] Material Energy^3 [JamPacked] [HQM] [CTM] [Beta]

    Excellent. Hopefully this quest won't prevent me from getting those other areas. I'll need at least two to breed... and to find carrots somehow. I doubt there are enough left for me to just kill them off. EDIT: Duh. Yeah, easy to find more. Easy to have lost the ones I found, too, but I got...

    [1.6.4] Material Energy^3 [JamPacked] [HQM] [CTM] [Beta]

    Here's a dumb question, and I'm hoping to avoid too many spoilers: I loaded the Biosphere area, tried to light it up a bit before really exploring it. Did a quest or three tied to the area, then came across a quest that said I needed to kill pigs. I don't see any pigs any more. I remember...

    The future of FTB Modpacks pt 2

    I am disappointed that FTB is taking the easy way out, and doubly disappointed that they are giving tacit approval to anti-user code by supporting mod authors who include such code in their packs. I am also disappointed that the FTB team has decided to reward Greg's multiple instances of bad...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    That might be how it is now, but so far as I can tell it was the source of our server crashing a few months ago when the code was first introduced. I think he may have cleaned it up a bit since then and made it behave better, but it certainly wasn't "nice" code when he first introduced it.

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    I disagree that we should be excusing mod authors who close off their work and refuse to interoperate with each other "just because". Closed off mods just result in situations such as RedPower 2, where a single author can lose interest resulting in thousands of worlds being stagnant or lost...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    Which is doubly sinister. Here we have multiple mods with code ready to be triggered the moment they detect .jar files who's signatures do not match. The code is inactive because the .jar files are not signed, which means that the code can be added unannounced and mostly unnoticed by people...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    I still scoff at this idea. Also, you don't see the author of "Pure Waters" throwing a screaming hissy fit over being included in 1497+ different mod packs over in the Skyrim modding scene. It just seems like Minecraft's modding scene is a little toxic. In fact, this whole debate about whether...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    Lawyers would also most likely take a look at his attempt to sue and ask "Are you serious?" Which is a nice, healthy attitude I think everyone should have about the idea that mod authors should be applauded for including malware in their code (for whatever reason). Oh, don't apologize...

    You are one highly informative and helpful person. Thank you.

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    Lawyers would be the legal method of preventing a group from distributing your work. Malware would be the illegal method of destroying the work of players who happen to have unwittingly downloaded content from someone who lacked permission to be distributing it, and thus had no actual...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    I'm not discussing specific mods, I'm asking about the policy as stated in the first post. A few mods may represent a few useful examples for situations the new policy may or may not apply to, and asking about them is easier than inventing a hypothetical situation to describe something that...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    This is a place to indirectly explain what it is, however, as we're asking questions about it with reference to this policy. i.e.: Does this policy apply to CovertJaguar's in-crowd DRM? Does this policy apply to GregTech's code against players converting from Tekkit? We need to explain...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    What about Greg's code that prevents his mod from loading if any part of the directory structure references Tekkit, Technic, or (possibly?) Voltz? A server I used to play on apparently was someone's version of FTB running inside his old Tekkit directory structure as that meant he didn't have to...

    The Future of FTB Modpacks.

    Does this policy in any way apply to mods who's code prevents the mod from loading if anything is present the mod author does not like?

    Feed The Beast - Redpower and 1.5.x

    Clearly the FTB team (who are the people more likely to know than you or I) believe that the mods are close enough to being finished (and RP2 is far enough away from being finished) to make this thread in the first place. It's taken IC2's eight devs the three months to patch IC2 to a 1.5...

    Feed The Beast - Redpower and 1.5.x

    She also posted in February that she was back on RP2 "full time". Two months later, she's only *just now* compiling RP2 for 1.5 to see what's broken and what's not. So that means we can't actually trust her tweets. She can easily say "I'm working on it! I'm not retiring!" and not ever update...

    Feed The Beast - Redpower and 1.5.x

    I don't care about comparators. Honestly, I can't think of a thing I'd do with them, because I haven't even been paying attention to the 1.5 Minecraft update. However, what I DO like is fewer bugs in mods, and the bug fixes for the 60+ mods have moved to 1.5, so we need to move to 1.5 too.

    Feed The Beast - Redpower and 1.5.x

    Good. I've been saying RP2 needed to be dropped for quite some time, and I'm glad to see it finally happening. The cynic in me is quirking an eyebrow at the fact that this information is coming out just before the Reddit AMA today, but gift horse, mouth, etc. I would HIGHLY encourage the FTB...

    When will Mystcraft 0.10.1 be added to Ultimate?

    *twitch* Well, that's unfortunate. Thank you for having information, though. I think you might actually be the first (though that might also be recent information). With Eloraam missing (to the point that her own testers don't know what's going on), we might be waiting a while unless the FTB...
