I don't get why some people are so focussed on GT. There's tons of other fun mods, why not try those for a change? Doing everything exactly the same every time you build a new base sounds kinda boring.
You'll have to adapt some day anyway. GT is more and more going in the direction of a total conversion mod that doesn't play well with others.
None of my GT playthroughs have been the "same" and usually focus on a range of mods and building a base more than in GT progress. I'm not sure where you get this idea that people that play GT are focused on only GT.
Let's see what happens. Running newest GT and still doesn't have any of these symptoms with hardmode configurations. But let's see what happens in the future.
