Best Laid Plans

What’s on the table

Passively I’m updating my packs that contain custom menus to reflect my switch from GDL to KDL launcher. Currently both launchers are mechanically the same. However, on the developer side of it, they are not. GDL is run by one man with one vision. KDL is run by more than one person with a varied vision. KDL will also add others to its management ranks and is not going to be super exacting on PRs. If your pull request passes the basic test and an as yet undetermined amount of devs on the team not be 100% sign off on it, it’ll get merged. Pretty much nearly everything got merged.

Aggressively, I’ll be adding world ore generation to Diamond Glass in 1.16.3. Diamond Glass is already on 1.16.3. I will also be doing a total rewrite of Lever and Button Lights for 1.16.3. Turns out the hurdle for porting has been the concept of “porting” the way we’ve been doing it. To get from any version prior to 1.16.x a complete rewrite and a reeducation of the self in regards to Forge must be accomplished. There are some open sourced mods that will be helping me towards this goal for both of these mods. They will be credited and wherever possible I will donate to them.

That’s not all

As some of you might be aware I’ve been split, this is due heavily in part to my added worth with Bisect Hosting. You might not be aware of it tho as I’ve learned to use the inbox feature of discord to stay on top of things. And then there’s that thing you guys call real life, that for me I see difference between it and the digital one.

Health

Punctured my plantar fascia giving me plantar fasciitis apparently permanently on my right foot. Had a super bad rash about a month and half before then, they still don’t know what caused it, but I think I might developed a rather nasty allergy to mosquito bites as the creams the prescribed me are the only thing that stop the welts and the itching.

Enough already! More about the packs

I really could use help with quest lines on the packs that have them. They need to be rebuilt, especial World of Dragons for 1.12.2. I also need help bring the start world for that pack forward to the latest build. It looks like swiss cheese now because of the various removals. And it could benefit from having custom npcs added to it. Should we do that the npcs should complement the current questing system.

Winter is Here is out and could use a lot more play testing. It works great on servers, need more feedback on the single player side of it. Please use the issue tracker.

I have 1.16.x (hopefully .3) WOD pack planned and it is currently hinged on when Ice and Fire team port to 1.16.3.

On Helping Me

Any area that you could help is most appreciated it. I feel like I should have to ask for it. But what I call my dev/support team, they’ve all moved on to RL pastures. IE, jobs. Who would’ve thought. I can’t wait for this to retire and be able to help me again. So start helping me and one of the rewards is become admin on my Discord. But that’s not freely given either.
