EDIT: The following is no longer my view or opinion on anything. This thread has served its purpose I will not be the cause of any further flame. DISCLAIMER: Trolls need not read, nor reply. So for my spare time last night I was browsing the minecraftforums mod section, I came upon BTW. Seeing as how I've known that no one likes FC, I've never figured out why. So I went to listening to a Q&A on his mod's thread. First I must say that I think he sounds like everyone describes him to be. So it was funny to hear the blatant "jerk" tone of voice. That being said he brought up one point that has bothered me for awhile before his videos and I want to get the opinion of others on. I like discussion, even a bit of heated debate, but I don't want this turning into a flamewarfest, or a copyright argument. The question is: Many of the features of forge mods, aka IC2, BC, ETC. Are quickly ending up inside of RedPower, it's slowly becoming a mod that does everything that all the other mods do. Is Eloram playing fair by taking things that other mods already do and then modifying forge so that she can do them too? Is she breaking some kind of modder code of ethics by turning a pastime into a competitive environment. If you are against it, why? What benefits does it bring us to not have her do this. If you are for it, why? What benefits to do we get if she is doing this. I do not care to hear anything relating to copyright, that is not what this discussion is about, for the sake of discussion assume that mod makers have all rights to their work, and there is no legal grey area. I just want to see what you guys think, it kept me up a bit thinking about it, mostly because I love redpower, but I don't like Eloram's adaptation of BC (the biggest one she borrows from, imo).
