This entire thread just made me laugh. Seriously though, mods change. Especially mods that have forums with a suggestions page. Also EE has also changed, not to mention EE2 has not been updated since 1.2.5 (as EE3 is now out) making any argument with EE in it irrelevant unless you are referring to EE3, which most definitely is not OP with other mods, especially in its current form.
On the idea that things change, other mods, and also the absence of them give you ideas in which to change/improve the mod(s) that you use.
On the subject of Balance........ simplicity in itself, IC2 already has a mechanic that would keep this idea balanced. Upgrades. Then the IC2 team can make the upgrade as expensive (item AND/OR energy cost) or cheap as they want to keep everything balanced.
I would prefer not to get an addon for something this small, most probably like mcmz4e. Hence a thread in the suggestions for IC2. Doesn't mean I won't get it. Thanks F4113nb34s (cool name by the way), Quite the powerful little tool this, hence me thinking it would make a good upgrade.
