So when will you rename the mod to Better than better than wolves, to reflect the new content? ;p

I can't speak for others and I'd be interested in hearing how many people go on foot at start (from past conversations on that topic though, it seemed to me to be a small minority, and one that was reduced even further by additional changes I made over time), but I always wait for the nether before doing so.
I didn't follow the entire conversation, but did see this.
I myself roam for a few days, until i have the means to sustain myself for a few days. i then use that time to mine and gather more crucial resources. After that, several hunting expeditions to keep food up, and beyond that is usually the " stock up and explore the world" phase. At which point i either find a better spot and build my base there, or i return to the original occasionally to restock and advance.
Finding good materials like iron requires (or greatly benefits from) finding caves, so usually the end of my initial nomad phase is "whenever i find a suitable cave".

Nah, it wouldn't change a thing. People read neither the title nor the opening post, FAQ or even the last comment page.

I've been playing some Forge minecraft with friends (since they won't play BTW with me), and while it's infinitely more interesting than vanilla minecraft, i simply don't see any mod working well with BTW, nor do i see any mod reaching this level of quality.
Virtually every other main mod in virtually every modpack does what BTW does in simpler and easier ways. mods with electricity and item and liquid pipes are ubiquitous. But none of them do it with a feel for what minecraft is, with multiblock construction and proper mobtraps. Putting BTW in those mods will just make 90% of the mod obsolete and the other 10% a mere curiosity. Especially since most people tend to pick the easiest version of something in the modpack. Nobody's gonna use soulforged steel if you can just get powered armor with some coal, iron and obsidian. Yet those are the people that miss the point of this mod.
I've yet to see a mod that reaches BTW's level in progression, in integration and in terms of a total picture. Seems to me most mods are nowadays designed for a niche in a modpack, hoping that nobody's overriding their features with easier ones.

Welp, my first few games were Hardcore mode, and after dying three times in that I learned not to hardcore mode. Then I played on merely Hard mode, and learned I'd better leave my pride behind. Now I'm playing on Normal mode, and I'm on the verge of trying to set up some way to have an Easy.
Well, with BTW, normal mode is already beyond-vanilla hardcore. So there's no shame in that.

How far exactly do you travel during the day? The first day is mostly about achieving a small hideout, but on subsequent days i spent most sunlight searching for wood, turning that into tools and then hunting for animals. Repeat for about 3-4 days to get a supply going, then make a choice for the future: Stay and build a base, or move on for a better spot.
As long as you dont jump and run too much, you can travel quite a distance with very little food.
Dec 16, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
It sounds to me like you run and jump too much, because food is plenty (unless you happen to have the unluckiest spawns possible). I mostly spend the first few days mining by night and murdering animals by day.
Small correction here: its not so much the work it needs to be updated, but the fact that anything beyond 1.5 doesn't offer much to the mod. It would mostly just involve ripping everything out, which makes updating to 1.8 a lot of work for next-to-nothing gain.

For a while now, Mojang's MO has been to add needless fluff in stead of fixing critical game problems. Like, absence of progression.
1.9 will bring a combat overhaul, which sounds promising until you see the plans and realize it's about the player-side only, not about all mobs being a non-threat and boring.

A piece of advice: read the last page of the thread before posting. The answer to your question is *literally* and i really do mean literally above your post
Nov 21, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
You do realize it's Mojang that developed this mod system?
Nov 19, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
It's not nearly as bad as it used to be. There were times when you'd get a dozen pages overnight, only to have it reduced to 2 pages in the morning because the rest was -at its mildest- flaming, update pestering and outright hate.
to clarify, the community seem to be worse than ever (for us). Its just that this mod is now mostly left alone.
Oct 11, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
It says 1.5.2 in the title, what more do you want? Besides every second or third page we get this discussion again and again and again and... well you get the point.
Also, i posted a snarky comment. What happened to that? Flame wars over updating again?

I can confirm. It was a major reason for me to settle in the desert, until i realized that it was literally the worst biome to settle in every other way.

why would they? minecraft is making a ton of money not just via the regular sales, but also by merchandise like those dolls and crap. You can expect them to pull off a "facebook buys oculus rift". People scream, company keeps things the same and months later nobody cares

As if something like that is even enforceable in a court.
uhm? of course this is enforceable in court. It says you can't make money off of other people's property. whatever way you spin this, payservers violate this.
Nov 2, 2012thekillman posted a message on DON'T PANIC -- Regarding "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!"Don't wanna brag, but i knew. My Kasperky (which always worked just fine with this forum) suddenly went all "there's malware here!"Posted in: NewsQuote from Gergith
It's a secret... because Macs don't get viruses ;-) Google it
Because Linux does not get them either. Because, like, 99.95% of all people use.....Windows(like me).
It's also why people invented....proper Antivirus software. And unlike most of the current generation, i'm willing to pay to never have to bother about clicking a link or downloading malware. if it's malware, my Kaspersky kicks it out long before it says "Download: 1%".
Dec 2, 2011thekillman posted a message on Notch Steps Down, Jeb Takes Lead Developer Position for Minecraftit appears Notch in recent times was responsible for features and Jeb was responsible for fixing Notch's mistakes. so i think this is a very good step forward. prospect for the future: massive amounts of bugfixesPosted in: News
