    I think the "Maps" section for the launcher should actually be removed :p It doesn't get updated...

    Also, if you had every youtuber (even if it was only for YouTubers with 10k+ subs, for example) there would still be hundreds of maps on there, and it would be a hassle to find the one you want...

    Yeah, but with a code it would be fine.

    Yeah, but think of how much server space that would take up, as they would have to store all that information (I think they hold the mod pack files, etc. with mod packs) so imagine some of the map sizes, I bet some go into the GBs, and loads of them... just no... Also, it would require the FTB team to grow pretty quickly due to the amount of maps that would be submitted

    I *guess* you're right.

    I'm not saying it's a bad idea, I'm just thinking it's not practical... I mean look at the DW20 maps... they didn't get updated, he just used his MCF thread for map releases. I think map support hasn't been a thing for a while now. Apart from JC adding Agrarian Skies maps, it hadn't been touched since 1.4/1.5 sorta time.... Same for the texture packs.

    I'd forgotten all about this until now, and realize I put it in the wrong place. I probably still have the code laying somewhere, I just never got any official response to it.

    regarding the ease of setting up packs... we have things in the works to make this easier for users, along with the upcoming curse client which will be even easier than that to make packs

    @FyberOptic if you are on esper IRC i'd love to talk about the ui there to speed this along a bit... we are working on adding some additional flexibility to some of the dialogs in the release planned for very soon. the UI itself is getting worked on in a branch called miglayout if you are interested

    Here is a small idea so at my house my dad has a proxy server so i tried to use this to get internet throu the proxy code but is was not using all of the arguments so it will not work
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw" -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxy.interlinx.bc.ca -Dhttp.proxyPort=3129 -Dhttps.proxyHost=proxy.interlinx.bc.ca -Dhttps.proxyPort=3129 -Dhttp.proxyUser=brianm -Dhttp.proxyPassword=brian -Dhttps.proxyUser=brianm -Dhttps.proxyPassword=brian -jar "C:\Users\brianm\Desktop\Feed The Beast\Feed The Beast.jar" --proxyHost=proxy.interlinx.bc.ca --proxyPort=1080 --proxyUser=brianm --proxyPass=brian -DsocksProxyHost=proxy.interlinx.bc.ca -DsocksProxyPort=1080

    I was in the mood to work on something different today so I took the time to pull in all the changes since I last looked at it, moved my own changes into a branch, and did a bit more work on it while I was at it. So now can you see for yourself.

    After the fixing I did today I would say it works fine now, the only thing I haven't done is the texture pack and maps tab, so that one's still a mess.


    EDIT: I fixed the texture pack and maps tab, and reworked some more of the code.

    One is "a bit shaky" at the moment, perhaps that's it.

    "A bit shaky" as in I literally quoted Mojang's server status page, help.mojang.com
    That's what it says when servers are under high load, apparently.

    Can you make the "Maximize" button usable? With the launcher full screen it would be easier to view modpack info, plus the wiki on the front page sometimes the text goes outside of the frame and you can't really read all of it sometimes. 'Just a poke in the eye' idea, no biggie though.

    Java 8 support is kind of needed, since Java 7 is now in Oracle's archives, and installing Java 8 prompts users to remove Java 7.

    This may have already been said but, a permagen increase option because I cannot find a code to increase my permagen to 512mb
     
  19. SatanicSanta

    It's either -XX:MaxPermSize=512M or -XX:MaxPermGen=512M
    can't remember exactly which one right now. And why would you ever need 512M for MC?
