    Frankly speaking, reverse engineering is not stealing and is perfectly legal in a lot of jurisdictions. But yes, i concur, it's better to stay out of it and instead put the work into making replacement mods better.


    Decompiling code is nowhere near the concept of reverse engineering. Decompiling proprietary code and offering it up for public download *is* stealing/copyright infringement. Worse, it's distribution.

    Further, the global internet is not governed by what "might" be legal in some arbitrary jurisdiction.

    i havnt seen a mod that replaces the tube system yet. and no, buildcraft doesnt count


    Learn a new method of sorting, instead of latching on to only one system and being stuck in the past.

    Or if you can't adapt, stay on 1.4.7.

    Citation needed. Eloraam has, several times this year, stated that she is still working on RedPower. A month ago she said she had hoped to have a big announcement to make by then but had been spending too much time playing another game. So to say that it is not in development and to state as a fact that she has given up is a massive disingenuous twisting of the evidence.


    Eloraam has done nothing more than make a couple of offhand remarks about looking at what's required to update the mod. Meanwhile, how many versions of Minecraft have come and gone, with no concrete indication that she's actually coming back? Months and months of complete silence while all of you sit here hoping against hope that RP2 will suddenly materialize as if by magic.

    No citation is needed, by now this should be common sense. The mod is dead, and it's not coming back. If you can't live without it, then just stay on 1.4.7, but it's time to move on with your lives already.

    There are plenty of great alternatives, some of which are even better than RP2, and they're made by committed people who have an actual interest in the community.

    Eloraam only releases stable builds of Redpower these days.

    Eloraam doesn't release anything these days.


    There, fixed that for you.

    The sooner you guys decide to use other mods to replace RP2 functionality instead of pinning your hopes on a modder with other priorities, the happier you'll be.
