So I made a mod...


Recommended Posts

It's not a very good mod. In fact its not even original. By that, I don't mean that i hacked ideas off of other more popular mods and their authors - i mean i ripped it right from Mojang :P


K, So, I have a mod pack I run called AutoTech, its s hybrid modpack that originally set out to replace Tekkit / Technic after we updated to 1.3.x - I stayed on top of keeping things updated until 1.4.7. The worst thing happened then... EloraM stopped updating RedPower :( - Epic Sadness --


Because I am not experenced enough to attempt to recreate some of Red Power's functionality, I opted for the lazy route. a Mod that adds blocks from 1.5.x and 1.6.x to MC 1.4.7

That is:

- Redstone Block

- Coal Block

- Charcoal Block (because it was easy enough to toss in)

- Hardened Clay

- Stained Clay (with exact crafting recipes from vanilla)

- Quartz Blocks (pillars mimic vanilla behavior)

- Quartz Ore (Does not generate yet - working on that)

- Quartz Stairs

- Quartz Half Slabs (does not yet stack into a single block on TODO list)

- Haybale (with exact behavior of vanilla)


// Additional Features:

- Coal and Charcoal blocks can be used as a furnace fuel for exactly 9 times the fuel of a single piece of coal. No gain or loss just convenience.




- add NetherQuartz World Gen

- get half slabs to combine into a single block - double slab

- Haybales need to have a crafting recipe

- not all quartz related blocks have a crafting recipe.


This mod does not add horses, and adding horses is beyond both the scope of my intent, and skill. (Use Dr. Zark's Mo' Creatures)

I'm not making the mod available until i have polished it up a bit. (Wrap up world gen / recipes at least). But I'd like to know what the general community feel is about this. I know that 1.4.7 is old, and we're already on snapshots sending us toward 1.7. - At point of release, i would not restrict the mods usage, as I don't feel its my place to do so. Really I'm only adding functionality that would have been added anyway. And aside from the time, I can't really claim ownership. So The mod would be freely distributed for all modpacks, public and private, feed the beast, technic, whatever.


I guess the question I want answered is, "am I wasting my time?"

Sorry posted in the wrong forum - my intent was to discuss the usefulness of a mod developed for a quickly aging version of MC, not so much the mod I made.[/edit]
