Sinhika, I'm very surprised you thought my original Java coding was skilled I have no qualms with you for ripping out any parts of the underlying SimpleCore or boilerplate that were no longer needed or were just plain bad
I really do think the SimpleOres could benefit from having a couple of fairly active devs that were using source control properly, it takes a fairly large amount of stress off of a single person. If anyone does want to have a chat about potential remake (v3.0???) of SimpleOres and associated mods, let me know and we can probably start some sort of way for us to brainstorm ideas. It doesn't have to be something that starts tomorrow and gets a first release in a week, but I think it's something that may breathe some new life into SimpleOres.
I've gained a lot more experience over the last 5 years of education, working in a software development environment, and my own projects, that I think there's a lot of things we could do differently, and better.
Zap, having someone that can play test, and also come up with quality suggestions, is just as important as actually coding the damn thing. I was always better at implementing ideas than coming up with the ideas myself (and don't even get me started on art!).
Sin, if you're interested in maybe giving this ago, just send me a message and you can fill me in on some of the changes, etc. so I can get back up to speed on forge/mcp, then we can have a chat with people about what they might like to see.
