- Established modpacks or private server packs only. If your post
count is below 100, and your modpack is less than a month old, I'll just say
no. A "private server pack" refers to a modpack intended to be used by a
closed membership Minecraft server and distributed only to those members.
- You must have my permission. Post on this thread.
- Proper credit and attribution. "RedPower by Eloraam", with a link to this thread, is a suitable example.
I find the way it is worded ambiguous and I have been wondering myself.
Does 'modpack' in the second sentence refer to 'private server packs' as well or only to 'modpacks' as used is the first sentence?
Do the following bulleted points also apply to 'private server packs'? It may seem like that from a syntactical view, but I think that it would make more sense to require permission for including her work in a modpack rather than using it on a server. I can see why she would want to quality proof packs that redistribute her work to the community, but how is she going to go about quality proofing closed servers?
Also seeing as she emphasizes the extent of distribution for private modpacks ('distributed only to those members' ), it leads me to think that she requires permission for public redistribution of her mods in packs, but not for private servers.
Where do you put the credit and the link on a closed server? This also seems to be referring to public modpacks.
Is she only freely distributing it for single player? It has been available for download for the mcpc build for a while (mcportcentral.co.za) with no mention of such restrictions, and they are pretty adamant on getting permission.
It can be interpreted in different ways as it doesn't seem to be discretely worded (not discreetly).
Beware of flamewars, I am only presenting my interpretation, and I am interested in yours. Hopefully someone might have some 'official' information or information on practice that elaborates on this.
Just a small reminder (while everyone waits) that you can be making yourselves useful rather than filling this topic with content-free posts:

Write a blog about some aspect of RedPower 2, or something you built with it
Tweet about RedPower 2
Use one of the RedPower 2 banners in your sig
I've approved some backlogged applications to the RedPower 2 wiki, just the ones that indicated that they would contribute. It would be great to have more contributors to the wiki!
The rest of the applications were declined, as people either couldn't read and follow directions or incorrectly thought that only wiki members can read the content (people create links to pages that haven't been written yet, and attempting to look at one of these empty pages causes people to think they have to join to see it).
Did anyone check Themattabase's stream videos (on twitch) from the last 36h or so? The pipes inside frames look AWESOME for frame quaries. The only downside I can see is the amount of iron necessary to make so many block breakers. Another issue is I seem to recall that blockbreakers are due for a nerf (being a bit too on the OP side). Anyone know if that's slated for PR6 or a later PR?
As an asside for the newbies to this thread, Elo is on record as saying there will eventually be 3-4 tech levels in the mod and that there will EVENTUALLY be an API once more of the mod is in place. She only exposes parts of one PR before it's release and keeps most of the details of the later pre-releases close to her chest. As an example we know that the current recipes for the computer and it's parts are placeholders. I think we need the chemistry stuff (rubber and plastic from rubber trees at a guess) added before we get closer to the final recipes on those items. Heck, even wool as the insulator for redstone wires is a placeholder as I recall. The API isn't due until we get to release - we're still in the pre-release phases.
All provided of course that the whiners and general haters don't drive her away from modding alltogether. Most of you are behaving worse than 3 year olds. Grow the **** up.
Just to clarify that, freedom of speech never exists on a privately owned forum particularly when it's purpose is detract from the subject at hand. Though they do a good job of letting things go for the most part unless its obviously not needed.
Back on subject, so with the new sorting machine that completely removes the need for a timer to pulse and a transposer (or was it filter?) to pull full stacks out?
Yeah, but from the looks of the vid he is just standing on a frame, nothing to push him.
No, there where supporting frames behind him pushing him, any time he was standing on the top of the machine he was not moving with it. The times he was not directly infront of them, he tended to be inside the chest that was getting moved, which then pushed him.
