    Would it be possible to get some elaboration on the timelapse/automatic commit rule? I noticed on the participation list, many people are listing a twitch stream or youtube channel. Thus, I would assume regular video updates when coding count, vs. an actual sped up version of development (ie. a timelapse)?

    Searge just wants you to show that you actually made the over the course of the contest. Any form of this is acceptable.

    Are you allowed to use other mods APIs? (Using IC2 API for electricity)

    Hey :) I think it's a nice idea. Also I've made you a simple logo with an idea of Rubik's Cube as a reference to creativity, savvy and Minecraft, also I used FTB colors, cause it unites us all here.
    I think it's good to have a logo for such event :)

    Also another font with more Minecraft feel:

    I can send you PSD file, if you need. Those two pics are transparent PNGs.

    I...um...accidentally registered. Sorry, I think I clicked the wrong link and then went through, expecting that if it was the registration then it would ask for additional confirmation. If my 'entry' could be ignored and/or removed, I'd be grateful.

    Damn, I so wish I'd seen this a week ago. Only heard about in the last hour (friend going, "Modjam winners? There was a contest?" and pointing it out to me)

    Because HOLY SH*T I've been busy.

    Here's the biggest chunk of what I've done, complete with screenshots, pseudo-code (written weeks prior to even setting up MCP), and downloads and stuff.
    Another chunk.

    I wouldn't have been able to do 15 minute commits though. Heh. 80% of my coding is/was done at work, between spare moments. Though, I've determined that I am the fastest god damn worker in my office, and have always been god damn fast (one class in high school the teacher had to invent three new assignments just for me and another guy to keep us from playing computer games). So I have a fair number of spare moments, but they're inconsistent and prone to interruption mid-function-call.

    I'll love the translocator and the sand dimention in ftb, sad that the sand dimention isnt for 1.4.7
