First of all things IC2 Team. I like your work and what you do. Thats for sure.
But you do leave versions unfinished. If you plan big things than finish it on every version that have these things or make it as a subversion so people can choose what they want and do not force the people to accept it.
I played with IC2 classic now a little bit. It does not have every feature that IC2 Exp has. But every feature that was implemented is working. Maybe buggy but it works.
And there is your version (do not think that i hate it but i do not like that you guys do not finish a version). First Explosions off (ok is ok because you override the energy system) that could be solved better. Simply have both systems next to each other and be with a config enabled and dissabled.
Second thing: Energy Measurement is almost = 0. Without powerconverter mods almost impossible to detect if energy flows. And also not detectable by EU reader and cable.
Third: Extreme Energy Loss and No Powerloss: First the no powerloss. The EnergySystem in 1.6.4 is having now powerloss and you can run as much power as you want through a cable and it would not even nodest that. (<.<). Now Extreme Powerloss. If you send 512 EU through a cable to a machine that require only 10 EU you lose the rest of the Energy because the machines can not send more than that amount of energy. You require everywhere a powerconverter, even if the the machine has the same powerlevel.
I nodest that with machines that said you need only 10k EU and it took for real 1Million EU. WTF?
I accept much things. I played a long time with the new version and enjoy the new features. But guys do not leave a unfinished project there. I do not want to expand this even more because its making me angry and sad.
And after trying hacking IC2 with a submod (yeah i tried that) which sadly failed because i could not shutdown the original code without asm (i am not able to use asm at the moment), i asked immibis for the IC2 classic code. After a short explaining why he could not give it to me i took the source by myself by decompiling the source. (And as long i keep the source private it should be fine). I started to update the sourcecode to the IC2 Exp API in 1.6.4 (i am not done yet but i am half way there).
A useless note but i want to tell it: i would only support the 1.6.4 version of mc.
Now the Question to the IC2 Team:
I know that i have no rights to release the source as long you guys give it to me.
But would you guys give me the rights to make the IC2 Classic version that is compatible to the IC2 Exp API if it is finish public?
Anyway thanks for reading. Speiger.
Edit: Addons that uses more than the API would maybe not compatible to this mod anyways. And this problem i can not fix.
