I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to learn to make mods (besides the obvious learn java part... which I am doing). I'm asking here because gregtech seems to be good in the "attention to detail" part of modding.

Just too much fun... GregTech...

All I know is if you can't program in normal java and make some simple games and programs and try to mod you will be only hurting yourself and ruining your process of education. Lot of people do that thinking they will learn lots of java from just the modding part but actually cause more harm then good.

V3.01c:
Added Solar Panel Cover. Yes you can place them on the Side too, but that is very retarded.

I know now what I must do, make 5 Solar Panel Covers and place them everywhere but the top!

How about adding "wind" and "water" covers?

Wind can only be placed at sides and will make it work slightly similar to windmills, except that it generates only 0,5 EU/t as long it is above Y 64 and has at least 6 free adjacent blocks in an area of 3x3 of center block. Maximum of 2 per block, adding more does nothing.

Water can only be placed above and below and will generate 0,25 EU/t as long it has 9 water blocks above/below it.

I will likely finish http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java before attempting anything.

I mean I'm watching tutorials and all for Java, but when I look at Minecraft code it's not really like what was taught. I guess I just haven't gotten far enough into the tutorials

What exactly are you watching? For example I watched the "New Boston" tutorials (up to the 45th) and got chastised for it by a Java programmer... so I switched to the Oracle Java Tutorials... hopefully it will be comprehensive enough.

Hey Greg, I have an idea for GregTech.
Change the output of 9 UU (normally a diamond) to something else.. Not even industrial diamond. That way you could make recipes harder (Iridium only needs 7)
Just a thought :)

UU is already hard enough to get, keep it the way it is.
How about adding an UUM block, so we can have recipes that requires more than 9

tbh he does not need to touch diamonds. He could make it easier even ass there really is not a big shortage on them nor they that rare down the road. Unless you don't know how to strip mine :P
