The ultimate solution

Recommended Posts

Sorry about the title but this would probably be the only way to stop the endless tide of noobs.

I was thinking about ways to convert the files and how to get people to do it so I googled for programmers for hire. If we were able to get a quote from a respectable company that could port mods that the noobs and ultimately we all want, the missing bits of tekkit. We could start a donation pot that people pay into. All we need is a pay pal account and someone with enough time to contact a respectable company.

Here are the mods that are mentioned the most

Flan's Mods http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/182918-125flans-mod-rewritten-and-now-totally-awesome-10000000-downloads/

Add-ons http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1339560-billys-plane-pack-flans-modwere-back-on-forums/

http://www.minecraft-smp.de/page.php?5

Trains mod http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/270332-125forgesspsmpcarts-couplingrailcraft-compatibletrains-and-zeppelin-mod211/

Ship mod (Sorry, it's shitty but they'll start requesting it soon) http://www.minecraftdl.com/ships-and-boats-mod/

No.

Hiring a professional to do the porting doesn't guarantee any sort of quality level and introduces a whole clusterfuck of legal technicalities.

No reputable programmer would touch a "Please take this other guy's stuff and make it work for me because I want it" with a adventurer's standard 20ft pole.

Anyone who would take the job would have a 90% chance of adding a rootkit and other nastyness to the mod because only black market programmers would disregard code ownership like that.

If you want these so badly go talk to the modders yourself and ask them how much people would have to donate before they made their mods latest-forge/bukkit enabled.

Or hire one of those freelancers to make a new mod that does those things.

What would be the most easy way to do this.

All except Flan's are compatible with Technic,

for he has decided to shred Forge to pieces to suit himself,

which is rather counter productive.

What's up with the random "enter's"?

Ontopic... No, a respectable company won't do it any better than a skilled coder could, they would just add, as Neowulf said, a clusterfuck of complications because of their "respectabliness". I'm against.

Edit... The title is a bit misleading.

If we flash the dosh then we could easily change his small mind. Power and money corrupts and minecraft nerds are no exception.

The "skilled coders" have failed us, sorry if this sounds a bit like the nazi party but this really is the 'final solution'.

Well, I just thought it was idiotic to reference your idea to this horrible thing, even though your idea hasn't got anything to do with it...

Sorry about that comment, I'm a socialist don't let one comment ruin my run, please revert my profile back to the soviet coat of arms. We are close to victory, I'm getting cranky, it's 12am here in Britain, I've been awake for over 16 hours, I just want to cut this turd loose and be done with it. I just need a bloody donation pot and email addresses of the modders.

Why is this forum like 'Master of Puppets'

Quote Master, master

Where's the dreams that I've been after?

Master, master

Promised only lies

Laughter, laughter

All I hear or see is laughter

Laughter, laughter

Laughing at my cries

I was going to set up a pay pal account and put MY MONEY into it and use MY TIME AND EFFORT to email and barter with the modders so that YOU ADMINS and ungrateful noobs could have the privilege of playing with a fully upgraded version of minecraft.

Now I just want to be sick.

BTW this is what these forums remind me of. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yp6cB7BGj48

Very few modders would be willing to take your money to do this.

Because then it stops being a hobby, and becomes a commitment.

If you had thousands of people on your thread shouting "UPDATE NAO"

and then one turned up with a fistful of cash..?

It's a stupid idea, and you have shamed the Old Country.

The Soviet Union bribed scientists to work for them, I really want these mods and money will be the only way I could see this done by at leased Christmas or even in our life times. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I'm not a soviet no more I'm some fucking infant if you believe the picture.

As previously stated, all the mods except Flan's will go in rather nicely.

Even then, the Technic team would only have to rearrange a small amount of internal gubbins to get things on track,

unless Flan has his head buried even deeper in his arse, and we 'can't do that'.

However, Tekkit does need a huge overhaul. It's just not big enough.

1. Stop wasting vertual paper you don't need a space between each line.

2. Why did I want to get donations and hire some professionals, quite frankly the ammeters that built this have bolted it together not welded it. We need professionals to clean it up for a start.

3. The money is to make flan come out of the basement and let us use his mod and the Minecraft SMP Manus improvements.

BTW how do you make a donation button on the forum.
