So now there are 3 mods that do the exact same thing, down to the mod description. There is:
Fast Leaf Decay
Quick Leaf Decay
Leaf Decay Accelerator

Granted, FLD isn't updated to 1.12, however, QLD is! So, what gives?

Not that I'm complaining. I'd miss this mod if there isn't any.



On an unrelated note, I've noticed that the CoFH mods are all basically completed, they now have strongboxes and satchels, and they are updated to 1.12. :)

Now I'm still waiting for buildcraft, railcraft, ProdjectRED circuits, mystcraft, binnies-mods, a continuation of thaumcraft and a port of Witchery. *GASPS* And THEN I can finally recreate my modded environment from 1.7.10. :p (after CoFHWorld configs are documented)

EDIT: A mod that adds sleeping bags to 1.12 would be nice to have to.
What no Xycraft? Kappa

And people wonder why 1.7.10 is still in use. Some people want to call 1.7.10 dead for modded minecraft.

Seriously though: I thought BC and RC were updated. I know Mystcraft is now up to 1.11.2, and Binnie's now has active developers.

But I also thought that Aznor was out of modding, so Thaumcraft is kaput. I think you're more likely to see a port of ChromaticCraft.

As far as I'm concerned, 1.7 is still a viable option for stable gaming. Lot of polished mods to choose from, most of which have been tested against each other for compatibility quite extensively, means changing up your experience within that version is quite simple and very rewarding. On the other hand, any bugs you find are unsupported, and you miss out on all the cool upcoming mods on the scene. It's dead in that people have moved away from it as a current modding platform, but still very alive to play with.

Last I played with it, RC was unfinished to say the least (missing all the multiblocks, amongst other things), but the basic tenants of rails and signaling seemed intact. All reviews I had heard from BC was that it was still a hot buggy mess, although I've not followed along with the progression in some time.

So far as Thaumcraft, Azanor did indeed step away, but there was some rumbling that @MjJty was looking to keep it alive, but I'm not sure if that discussion ever went anywhere.

Are you suggesting @Reika is planning to update his suite, or was that a "when Hell freezes over" kind of statement? I haven't been following those threads in ages. Oh, how I would love to play with Rotarycraft again.

For my two cents, I've recently been playing Regrowth and having a whale of a time. It just feels like as new versions come out, we have more choice over what to play with - you could go retro back to 1.2.5, have fun with 1.6.4 in Agrarian Skies, or go cutting edge with 1.12, or anything in between.

I will say, I've found myself missing things I didn't expect - although the faster cooling of 1.7.10 TiC block casting is nice, overall I miss the more flavourful feel of Tinkers Construct 2; how the material abilities are more varied and interesting and more choices are viable. I miss the newer stuff in IE, and lots of things from Actually Additions.

Overall, I like the huge stable of well developed and tested mods in 1.7.10, and I like the new and different directions mods took in 1.10+ - and having the choice is brilliant.

tbh i don't mind people playing 1.10/11/12 but i like 1.7 because of the huge amount of mods i can add to my world at any time to me it's more fun having these mods than the new vanilla mechanics in 1.8+ in a lot of cases there is a mod that adds that feature

Since there are still things from EnderIO that there are no substitute for (in 1.12.2 at least) I found this exciting (oh who am I kidding, I find anything CoFH exciting, much luv)
http://teamcofh.com/posts/2017/10/20/low-hanging-fruit/
I forgot how much I hate vanilla enchanting, forgot how spoiled we've been with EnderIO (or BetterEnchanting or Openblocks or other mods MIA from current lineup).

And I just want to say WB Twilight Forest, and hope to say WB Thaumcraft again someday.

Goodness. That link is worth an overview and posting on the whats-new-in-modding thread fwiw.
