is it really so hard to just trust me to do what I can?
Like, why would you even bother asking?
Sorry, I seem to have made an ass of myself. Maybe I missed something, but your earlier responses seemed to indicate that adding redpower integration in one form or another was a long way off, or unlikely to happen, and I was simply curious as to whether there might be a reasonable workaround in the shorter term.
I never meant to put undue pressure on you, or to oversimplify the complexities of Minecraft modding. It's impressive how determined the modding community tends to be, what with Minecraft breaking compatibility almost every update as it is, and I'm not trying to gloss over what may in fact be a challenging technical problem. So, please excuse my ignorance, if that is in fact what I did.
I bothered to ask simply because I'm excited about your mod. I'm aware of your OP feature request rules, but it seemed like tech mod integration was something already in the works, so I was interested to know if and how RedPower would be addressed. Particularly as I hoped to give your mod some extensive coverage in the Let's Play plans I mentioned, which seemed like something of benefit to you and your work here; then again, maybe I'm mistaken in assuming that. Regardless, if you do have RedPower plans in the works, and are already working to resolve things in your own way, I certainly do trust you, and am excited to see what you develop as it comes.
All that said: I understand how obnoxious and annoying it must be to have people pop on here and spam "ZOMG ADD TEH JETPACK LAZOR NUKES MODULE, IZ EESY, NAOWWWW PLZ!!11!"-style requests, hence your OP request rules. I've seen that happen a lot on various threads, I know you and the other modders do this stuff on your own time, and I respect the work you guys invest in making quality stuff to release for free to your communities.
I think I've been decently respectful in my queries, bearing all that in mind. And I don't think I deserved the sort of derisive condescension you just now showed to me. It seemed quite uncalled for.
Best of luck to you with your plans for the mod.
