That's the one weird config change you noted?
"GeoStrata - Enabled the generation of Rock" - great - now we have a whole lot of stuff we need to tunnel through thats like cobble - but requires a iron pickaxe. Oh - and limestone, quarried stone, sandstone and quartz variants added by other mods have not been disabled. Its like the forge "oreCopper" wars all over again, which only just have been resolved. Also, is this rock properly minable at full speed with ic2, tc4, TiC's mining tools?
"Tinkers Construct - Keep Levels on death" - er - ok. nice i guess. But reverted again in 1.0.7
"Tinkers Construct - Bronze ingot return from 4 to 3" - Where did that other ingot go exactly? At least this too is reverted in 1.0.7
