Honestly, the best "kitchen sink" modpack I've played lately is Resonant Rise 3 on the ATLauncher. Now I did do a lot of tweaking to it, adjusting some configs, pulling out or adding some mods just to polish it off, but the custom modlist it has for you to pick through when you install it is really interesting. I've put more time into that than any other modpack of late that didn't have like a skyblock-style quest progression (Blightfall, Agrarian Skies, Regrowth, etc). It's fun running through all the different angles that mod gives you.

I hate using other launchers, can you rehost that one on the Technic Platform?

OMP-I is taking forever to load, is that something new? Or is there an issue? It's been about 30 minutes now, so I'm thinking it's something with the update and everything having to initialize once?

I saw that mod in Technic and I've been wondering which of these two is true, since I know they didn't model all howeverthefuckmany pokemon there are.

a)They use sprites they stole from Nintendo

b)They modeled like 12 Pokemon and that's what's in the mod

c)Pokemon do not exist as entities, and are only inventory items or notes on a sheet. For art for these, see a.

No there's a ton modeled, like in the 400 range, and they are emulating the pokemon battle/breed system perfectly, using the same exact formulas from the game.

Vib Rib posted:

Cerepol has it right: why emulate that? I guess I like the childlike whimsy and the packrat collectathon appeal of a land brimming with weird collectible monsters, but the combat in Pokemon sure leaves a lot to be desired. Now that you have a full 3D world to explore and all these pokemon modeled in it, all I could think was "why would you stick that dated turn based combat in?"
But then I guess Minecraft's actual combat leaves as much or more to be desired in the first place so hey, I guess it's a bad choice either way.

There are no mobs, and you don't have to fight, so you can go around earching for Zapdos or Gyarados or whatever.

Turts, just how terribad is your computer, honestly.

E: Seriously, nobody is having load times like this. Is this a 2004-era toaster or what?

E2: Are you allocating an actual amount of RAM? You need at least 2GB and should give it 3. Or are you stuck with an unbelievable amount, like the Xbox One the third Xbox?

Another person stated they had the same issue. Not two posts ago.

I have a Lenovo y410p

The Cpu is an I7-4700MQ
The video card is Nvidia 755m
I've got 8 gigs of ram.

The game is still loading right now, It's on 2 Loading Entity Renderer, and it's been about 40 minutes.

Here's a log, I'm going to quit out and see if something is wrong with my settings.

E: I have 4 gigs of Ram given on my system, and 8 gigs total, I'm using java U_45. Task manager says that the game is only using 2 gigs of ram to boot, but that's normal for me.

The ftb reddit has similar posts of other modpacks with loading issues, apparently some version of forge has an issue where it gets stuck in a loop if you're viewing the window while it attempts to load. Try minimizing the window and see if it loads faster?

Ok, so, maybe I'm just stupid about this stuff but..wouldn't skipping 1.8 present the exact same issue as converting to 1.8? I'm not aware of any system changes they made in 1.8 that are going away in 1.9, so they would still have to convert everything anyway.

By looking at what's needed to upgrade from 1.8 to 1.9 they'll be able to better decide whether its worth it.

Does anyone have a good replacement for XACT crafting? It was this little blueprint thing that hooked up into NEI and would let me craft things straight from the blueprint.

I've never used a cyclic assembler, but this mod didn't require power, so I could use it in the beginning to set up machine frames and the like since those are hard to remember.

The thing about Gregtech and IC2, is that it was never meant for single player. I mean in it's first iterations when it was fun, yeah it had a SSP focus, because mods weren't used for multiplayer back then, but then people were running SMP servers, and when they all worked together they'd burn through all the "content" in a few days.

The bullshit came with that, the idea was that there would be a single reactor for a "town" or a group of players, not just one. Add on top of that Servers with "donation" shops, where people would donate and then get a reward, greg and IC2 were pushed into being more grindy, that way server owners could drain their people dry.

(With mining /warp access, materials for sale, extra taxes, in game funny money, that sort of thing.)

If the content is "building machines" and not "using machines to build cool poo poo" then I think there is something wrong with that mod. Of course everyone not a zealot or a wanna be cult leader modder knows this.

To be clear, it made him a ton of cash from server kickbacks, and is not in fact a good thing.

So do you guys just kinda roll with terrible framerates on the megapacks, or is there something you can tweak? I'm getting like 20-30 fps on OMP for some reason, even out in the wilderness.

People hate optifine, but I swear by it and went from 30 -> 60 fps. Just get the right one for 1.7.10 and play with the settings until everything looks and works proper. (you sometimes have to turn off multi-core or Fast OpenGL because of chunk flickering.)

The biggest thing is the wording on it, you're not buying anything, it's a donation "perk" which, in most people's mind (whether or not that makes it legal is another thing..) makes it ok. They just use these cosmetics and keys like PBS tote bags, as a "thank you," for donating.
