I'm really waiting until the Mojang team create that modding platform (w/e it's called) so I won't have to update it all the time. I'll have a lot of learning and work to do at that point but if there's enough people who enjoy the mod I'll definitely look forward to continuing it!
Progress seems to be really slow with them lately though, they really like to goof off now and make pointless changes to the game.
Edit: Not gonna lie, I've been lazy. I only know basics like conditionals right now (I made this entire mod from copy, paste, test, comment out and change variable value), but I'm going through Java tutorials and learning how to use forge starting today and I'm going down the path of being legit! I'm not going to wait for the API, that's just idiotic.
