Depends on who the man is. Azanor, for example. A creative person with a singular vision can easily outdo a team of "coders" who want to flex their skills.

Oh I see, sounds like he doesnt like the idea being floated around about mods staying in 1.7 and not being a slave to the Mojang cycle of updates. Which seems to me the very best option for the end user because I know I am not the only one sick to death of having to toss out a version as soon as it becomes stable to a new bug-ridden version. Sounds to me like Lex hasnt actually played the game in a long long time and instead gets his kicks making updates. Which eventually there would be no need for if mods stay in 1.7. And then he wouldnt be so important anymore.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: We need to unite and break away from Mojang's sloppy code and updates

Asie, Reika, you guys and some others are the exceptions. You guys are cool. Aside from getting a bit irate at times, you're generally reasonable and approachable. The important difference is that you guys don't let it go to your heads. Humility is the foundation of the Eight Virtues for a reason.

:D

Side note: I thought you were some random person; I did a double-take when I saw your name on the quote and then could not find the cartoon character with the evil grin. :p

I would not complain if mods stayed in 1.7...I have better things to do than update.

Tartarus.. I mean at work. Same thing really.
For those who choose to stay- I wholly support you in this. At the end of the day its your mod; so its ultimately your choice.
Personally I'm quite excited for what you could build with a stable code base and the extra time available.
Nothing interesting has been added to vanilla since horses. :p
Nothing interesting has been added to vanilla including horses.
(the last time a vanilla update peaked my interest and didn't disappoint we got another 128 blocks of building height)

My mods and your mods... That's at least 27 mods not moving... Also, I think COFH said they weren't planning to update in a while.
Major mods like BC, Forestry, TC, AE, and so on would need to agree, because it is they who drive the community via player interest. If only developers like me stay, we will just fall out of interest.

Considering BC would need a significant portion of the entire internet to store all its models in the current format, I don't see 'em moving for a while, at least until Forge comes up with a suitable successor to the Old Ways.

It should also be mentioned that new mods will most likely be created using the latest version. Even with mod devs using 1.7 keeping active and updating often things would inevitably get a bit stagnate.

Not really. Mods are created where the community is. Not where the latest version is. And if Nova is along we won't have to care about versions as it will handle that for us. Also. If we stay on one version Forge can optimize the core engine

Do you really think lex would stay on a single version especially since he already update to 1.8 and is about to end support for 1.7
