Would anyone like to get together to develop a mod?

  • 2013-11-04 21:16:18

    Was just wondering if anyone who has came out of these tutorials or has been for a while, would be interested in getting together to create a mod?
  • 2013-11-04 22:15:02
    Still planning on taking the modding courses these two next weeks (though I have watched them, I haven't tackled the assignments), but I would love to take on modding with someone else. Still got exams though. What do you have in mind?
  • 2013-11-04 22:21:32
    Me! I've finished the courses a while ago and I still didn't do nothing :D

    But I really want to do something!
  • 2013-11-04 22:35:32
    I haven't finishded the advanced courses yet, but I'd love to work on something. Do you have anything particular in mind?
  • 2013-11-04 22:39:30
    At the moment no, however if anyone's got an idea feel free to say, if we get a couple people together who have finished the minecraft modding course. We'll be able to throw something together.

    I had an awesome idea for a food mod that degenerates food if eaten to often/frequently (So you don't set up a potato farm and never eat anything else again)

    But never got around actually starting because just another food mod seems boring to me...
    (and I'm still unsure how to overwrite the food stats)
  • 2013-11-04 23:05:48
    I have a really good idea, but I was planning to wait until after I finish the advanced courses before starting on it. So does anyone else have ideas?
  • 2013-11-05 01:02:17
    I'm still working through the courses but I would love to be part of the team. I'm still a noob but I'll contribute whatever I can.
  • 2013-11-05 02:44:00
    I also wanted to make a mod but I never get good ideas and when I do, its hard to be motivated to work on it D:

    Maybe having a team will be better than doing it alone :)
  • 2013-11-05 04:10:21
    Hey I actually just made this account to reply here, I followed along with the courses, that said I never actually did the assignments for them, but regardless I had an idea for a mod and I've begun work on it, but would love to have others to work with. My idea was pretty simple, no matter how hard I looked I couldn't find a mod that had both item storage and liquid storage, so well that's the mod I've been making. It adds new chests and a liquid tank. I have more ideas for the mod but I've come to the point where I'm finding it harder to work on the mod alone as I keep running into problems, and not being able to talk to anyone who has any idea what I'm talking about becomes quite bothersome as I can't work through them. If you're interested in what I've been doing or just think it might be fun to help out I'd certainly appreciate it :D more so than anything else though I'd just like to meet some other people in the modding scene.
  • 2013-11-05 04:11:23
    I'm still not done with all the courses yet, but I'm up for ideas.
  • 2013-11-05 04:13:24
    @Xandayn - Doesn't Engineer's Toolbox do basically what you're looking for?
  • 2013-11-05 04:19:33
    Does it? I've never heard of it, regardless I've already done quite a bit on it so I'm not going to give up on it now.
  • 2013-11-05 08:18:57
    So who will be interested I'm forming a small team of 3 - 5+ developers to make a mod and if you are, what country/timezone are you in, are you 17+ and what days are you avalible.
  • 2013-11-05 12:45:30
    I'm interested! I'm 20yo from Italy (GMT + 1) and I can easily find time to work on a project
  • 2013-11-05 19:02:30
    Well i'm still interested, 18 year old from Arizona United States. -7 GMT with no daylight savings time. My schedules a bit odd, but I'm free weekends and two days within the week, though it changes from week to week which two they are, but after around 4pm my time I'm almost always free.
  • 2013-11-05 22:39:50
    I'm interested!
    I am 17+ (exact age stays secret ;) ) GMT+1 and would like to help as i can
  • 2013-11-06 02:01:40
    I'm interested if my skills fit. :-) I'm -5 GMT and older than Microsoft. Schedule is pretty flexible these days.
  • 2013-11-06 05:03:22
    I am interested! I'm from Singapore(GMT +8), 15 years old. I am available everyday from now til 1 Jan 2014 from 12pm to 4pm. I hope I can help :)
  • 2013-11-06 06:09:39
    I'm interested.
    I'm 17 almost 18 and I'm GMT+1,
    I'm available mostly every day after 5pm and mostly every Friday I'm available the full day.
  • 2013-11-06 11:03:51
    I'm from Maryland (GMT -5) and I'm free most weekdays from 3 to 4 pm and all day Friday starting at 2:30. Sometimes I'm free on weekends too.
  • 2013-11-06 11:50:35
    Right, so we have more or less 8 people who want to work together. When is everybody available for us all to join up and talk, also which communication software should we use, TS or Skype?
  • 2013-11-06 13:00:59
    skype? I think it's easier to chat if someone is not online
  • 2013-11-06 13:27:44
    I'm fine with either. But I think teamspeak is more suitable than skype for this.
  • 2013-11-06 14:00:53
    @Noob Yh, thats what I was thinking.
  • 2013-11-06 14:24:36
    I have no mic, so yeah....
    I have ICQ and Jabber though...
  • 2013-11-06 16:23:15
    @Robotic-Brain Not having a Mic is alright, if we do decide to go with TS there is a text chat.
  • 2013-11-06 16:42:09
    It has been very nice to see you all get together to make something (great initiative TDM). I'm too busy to join myself but if you need help with something specific I'm sure I could help. Just post in the forums or contact me in any other way (depending on what suits the issue best).

    Good luck with the project, I'm sure it will be awesome (I've marked your assignments, I know what you can do). :D
  • 2013-11-06 16:50:14
    @VSWE This is all thanks to you. None of this would have been possible, if you hadn't made these amazing courses and I/us are eternally grateful =D

    Also, one thing you could help with is. Do you have any ideas for a mod?
  • 2013-11-06 17:29:20
    Also, If anyone wants to get together and start talking, I've made a temp channel in the private members section on the Feed the beast TS server:
    IP: teamspeak.feed-the-beast.com
    Password: mcepoch1

    Just look for: Vswe Courses Team & the password is: modding
  • 2013-11-06 17:29:34
    I've both teamspeak and skype, I prefer skype but as stated Teamspeak is a bit more suited for this situation
  • 2013-11-06 17:30:45
    I'll join as soon as my teamspeak updates
  • 2013-11-06 17:32:47
    Says theres an error using the password modding
  • 2013-11-07 01:15:32
    No one else posted so I thought I will, we got quite a bit done today, I've posted our work so far on git https://github.com/xandayn/WaterCraft in case anyone is interested.
  • 2013-11-07 02:48:40
    Are we still using the FTB teamspeak server? I don't see the room anywhere.
  • 2013-11-07 03:19:29
    Ah yes sorry I forgot to mention the room's name was changed to Watercraft, but I doubt anyone is on right now as every has gone to bed.
  • 2013-11-07 05:55:12
    I can't find that either.
  • 2013-11-07 10:26:49
    It was just a temporary room, so it will disappear as soon as everyone leaves.
  • 2013-11-07 13:14:45
    Yeah i didnt realize it was a temp room, haha
  • 2013-11-07 23:55:45
    Anything interesting happen since I left?
  • 2013-11-08 04:14:29
    Slightly upset that I missed my chance to be part of the dev team but would love to play with the mod when its done and maybe help with play testing
  • 2013-11-08 05:51:36
    You are not missing out much Sopa, me and half of the team did nothing at all :D
  • 2013-11-08 10:07:13
    Yh, at the moment were still getting the basics finished and out of the way.
  • 2013-11-08 12:45:34
    Have you established a more stable communications channel by now?
    I would vote For Github since it has version control, a Bug tracker, a Wiki, and a couple of other neat features
  • 2013-11-08 16:51:34
    It's not like we're closed or anything I'm pretty sure no one would mind if people still joined in, Hunter joined us the other day
  • 2013-11-08 17:33:41
    Our GitHub has moved, Robotic is hosting it now on https://github.com/Robotic-Brain/WaterCraft
  • 2013-11-08 20:16:09
    I would've joined the first day, but you guys changed the room name and I couldn't find it.
  • 2013-11-08 20:28:23
    Hunter are you modifying the Dropbox files? We moved over to using git instead. I was trying to tell you that earlier but you left TS
  • 2013-11-09 14:06:09
    I know you switched, I've just been busy and haven't set it up yet. I'll probably have free time this afternoon.
  • 2013-11-10 03:17:53
    Where's the TS room?
  • 2013-11-10 03:25:00
    Also, I finished the functional code for the chest boat (no rendering code yet), and I'm still new to GitHub, how do I upload it to the project?
  • 2013-11-10 06:59:10
    Hey no ones been in teamspeak today really, so theres no channel, as for pushing the code you'll need to talk to robotic as he's hosting the git.
  • 2013-11-10 06:59:56
    You can probably catch him tomorrow in TS, probably in like... 12 hours from the time Im posting this
  • 2013-11-11 16:04:53
    We need a better way to talk to each other when no one is on TS. Hmmmm.
  • 2013-11-11 17:48:47
    I'm on TS but you appear to have died so RIP
  • 2013-11-11 18:29:37
    Online now. I may have missed you =S
  • 2013-11-17 19:47:48
    Has everyone died? Lately it just seems to be me Robotic and Frod working on the mod.
  • 2013-11-17 20:30:13
    Replied to your PM. Been busy.
  • 2013-11-21 00:17:41
    For those who are interested, the mod is coming along great.
  • 2014-01-02 16:06:56
    How's it all coming along?
  • 2014-01-02 22:51:56
    We've all kind of disappeared and stopped going on TS.
  • 2014-01-05 20:58:51
    That's a shame.
