Well don't get folks wrong, I think everyone is happy to be able to play mods like Redpower.. we'd just like to play the ACTUAL redpower, and it's just a build up of a lot of no-communication and in all reality, her fan base turning into some of the most hostile people on the planet.I do believe that 1.4.6 is a very small update so it shouldn't require major changes. Bugs are bugs though, so it gets done when it gets done. I am just glad to have the option to play mods like Red Power.
RP2 has not been updated since 1.2.5Though I'll also note, the updates in the 1.4.2 series were also rather small updates.. aaaand we see where we are.
You can't treat every mod as the same. It all depends on what code they modify. For example, redstone logic changes. If Redpower uses the redstone logic, but Portal gun does not; the portal gun mod will be updated much faster.Also if those coding changes were the reason Zenzar, every mod wouldn't be updated, only the small ones would be.. and pretty much every active mod that exists is up to 1.4.5
Slowpoke mentioned that he "hoped" it would be in the release. He mentioned they may make another beta pack for 1.4.6 and do a full release a week or two later.Is anyone from the modpack team able to confirm whether or not XyCraft world gen will be added to the "Updated FTB beta pack" (Not sure what it is going to be called after its updated)?
Thing is, I'm not treating each mod the same. When the redstone logic change hits, yes, it will take her much longer to do and that will be completely understandable. I'm talking about the latest updates that changed baseline minecraft behavior that all mods had to adapt to. It's not like 1.4 dropped and she hadn't touched a line of code since 1.2.5, she had been working on it. The difference is the other modders understand that no matter how hard you try, software is going to have bugs in it. Most of them also choose to port the mod to a new version first, THEN add new content, not the other way around. This is just discussion on what the fellow above me said earlier. Will this now be the trend? Will people be locked onto 1.4.6 even when 1.5.4 is out, because a single mod is behind, ect. Something server owners need to ponder.You can't treat every mod as the same.

Is the 'if you bothered' comment really needed? That's what I mean about the hostile community that follows this thing. I did watch the video. In fact, if you even look above, I stated very clearly I watched the video. I've also heard Dire say Redpower is coming soon about 3 times now. I also heard him say he hoped to start his lets play on the first of December. I've also heard IRC admins say they knew for a fact it'd come out for 1.4.5. I've heard a lot of things, what I expect to happen is now rather different, and odds are, SOMETHING about that patch will cause some new bug to hit Redpower that doesn't seem to effect any other mod.. as what apparently just happened in 1.4.6. Just because they suspect something (And yes this is suspect, the new redstone code isn't in their hands yet), doesn't mean it's a for sure.@Kugraw9 if you bothered to watch docm's interview with slowpoke he said that the redstone update does not affect redpower
