Man, I did password recovery on my old minecraftforum account just to tell you how happy I am that you updated this mod. (why are comments disabled on curse? :P)
Repose (with the default settings) is really how minecraft should always have been. It makes a lot of situations more interesting, and shuts down a lot of really cheesy tricks. Some of my players complain endlessly, but that's ok. They're wrong. Repose will be a staple of all my modpacks forever as long as you keep updating it. It's one of those mods that's a simple twist on the game but really breathes new life into it.
