Chezzik Posted April 18, 2012 Share Posted April 18, 2012 I don't check for server software updates very often, if I knew the frequency of updates I can check if there are any updates during the expected period of time. I'll actually try to be helpful, even though the question does not warrant it. Warning, since this post is a serious answer, it's going to be very boring. I'd recommend not reading it(!) There's usually about one release of the technic pack launcher per week, although more than half of those releases are just to address issues with changes to the login structure. Many of the other releases have been to add new mod packs (ie voxel-something and Yogbox). For the basic modpacks (technic pack and Tekkit), it's extremely hard to nail down how often they are released. For a while, they were released fairly frequently, but that was before the launcher. The older versions are not selectable from the launcher. They used to be available on google code, but have been removed, so finding the dates of those releases is impossible now. I think the Technic launcher came out early February, possibly late January. There were a couple releases of Technic and Tekkit immediately, to go with the launcher. Neither has been updated since then. All releases since then have been to fix login issues, or to add other modpacks into the launcher. There was a serious reply on the previous page. Someone said that the releases are heteroscedastic, and that was actually a very good answer. In addition to that, the product is simply too young to make any other serious answer. I believe the very first Technic release was based on Minecraft 1.0, so the movement from a major Minecraft release to a different major Minecraft release has only been attempted once so far. Using that statistic, the frequency could be listed as "1/x", where 1 refers to the number of major updates over the pack's lifetime, and x refers to the entire lifetime of the pack. This is only slightly more helpful than the "5" answer that was given. Also, the question is very, very vague. It's a lot like asking "What is the frequency of the World's Fair"? If I was asked this question on the street, I would probably say that I know of three World's Fairs (Chicago in 1890's, St. Louis in 1904, and New York in 1930's), and it's been 70+ years since the last one. But, then I look at Wikipedia, and see that there were 29 different World's Fairs in the 1930's alone, and 8 of them since 2000. The question about Technic pack releases is just as vague, and expecting anything more than childish answers is unreasonable. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
